Went again for restaurant week. Such good food and fine service. Great steak and the best mashed potatoes. Good wines to go with it. The best. Truly five star dining.

The Capital Grille - it is my new favorite place. I had wanted to go there for a long time and finally got to go. I will not lie and will tell you it is not cheap. It is pricey, but it is most wonderful. If you want a lovely place where the service is also excellent and the food... More

The Capital Grill in Denver is just more than 5 stars. From the tastefully fine and luxurious atmosphere to the excellent, graceful staff. The refined, extravagant choice of food and wine was astonishing. Just tasted like a million bucks. Please ask for Taylor Stroud as he couldn't of made this exciting 21st Birthday for me and my daughter anymore exclusive.... More

Jammed in like sardines; had to yell in my neighbors ear to be heard; all food a la carte and way, way overpriced. Would never go back.

We had a great experience at the Capital Grille. We went super early one night and the staff treated us so well. They were very attentive but not intrusive. All of our questions were answered without condescension. We never felt hurried or rushed. They comped a dessert for us just because we were on a date night and there were... More

This is a wonderful place from the minute you walk in the door until you finish your dessert. Bread and salad were yummy. We had steak with lobster and both were fresh and tender. I have never had a steak this tender. Dinner came with great mashed potatoes and green beans. Could not decide on a dessert so we had... More

3 out of the 4 of or family members got sick after eating here on a Friday night. We called the next morning to speak to a manager about it and got brushed off. He said "well we served over 500 guest last night and no one else has complained." We were not impressed. We were not trying to get... More

This is a great option in downtown Denver. The dinner was one of the wehave had anywhere. We had a Wedge salad, filet , mashed potatoes, green beans and creme brûlée. The wedge was not too large but just right. The bacon bits where perfect. I understand the bacon is from a special family farm in Wisconsin. The filet was... More

Denver's Cap Grille is typical of all the fine restaurants in this outstanding chain. Elegant atmosphere and great steaks. A treat for those who prefer dry-aged beef. Great for guys or for business dinners. Very expensive, even for a steakhouse. Definitely worth the occasional splurge. And PS: The seafood is outstanding, too, especially the swordfish steak.

Thank Jim H

Come see why steak lovers are on a mile-high high in Denver. As the Zagat Guide praised, you’ll find “awesome steaks served by the pros are the order of the day” at The Capital Grille. We’re centrally located in historic Larimer Square, just a few blocks’ walk from the Convention Center and Coors Field as well as the Denver Center for The Performing Arts. Complimentary valet parking makes it easy to succumb to the urge for the perfect steak.
