My step mom and I had a great experience. Waking distance to the Capital One Arena, which was perfect. Great dinner before the show.

To begin, we had to switch our reservation from one night to the next, and they were very accommodating. Dinner was outstanding . . . we both had caesar salads, that we agreed were one of the best we had ever encountered, followed by filets prepared exactly as ordered. We were fortunate to have a waiter who provided knowledgeable wine selections, as well as timely & impeccable service. First rate experience all around.

The food was delicious. I love the lobster and crab cake. The butter poached lobster was delish and the drinks were fantastic.

Service could have been better by being quicker and seating should be taken off of a slant for outside… but everyone was kind

I ordered the ribeye steak sandwich and the meat was very fatty, and the dipping sauce had no taste. The waiter messed up drink orders several times and seemed understaffed. I ended up paying more than I would normally for mediocre food and service.

The Capital Grill is our favorite go to place when we are in DC. It was a hot day so the cool atmosphere and the tasty Cosmo and Beer helped cool us of. We had a burger and the seasonal salad with chicken. We then had the berries with creme fraiche. All were delicious and we look forward to eating at the Capital Grill!

For the first time, had to send a steak back because it was cold and over cooked (asked for medium rare)…. But staff was great and got a new steak that was great. Sea bass was great, too.
