I have been to various capital grilles and always receive consistent food and service. I enjoy being in the board room for private events

Was given a 50 gift certificate for Christmas so my husband and I decided to give Capital Grille a try although we are pretty much hooked on Blu!. My husband tried the roasted chicken and I ate the tuna. Wasnt impressed at all. The food was bland and expensive. Maybe this is one if those places where if u dont... More

Plan to valet park as parking is a challenge. The service was perfect. We had an array of appetizers for our large table and they were all excellent. The management and wait staff were very accommodating and professional. My only complaint was the noise level. We dined on a Thursday evening and the restaurant was packed and it was so... More

It was raining and the traffic was awful, so we were thirty minutes late, but welcomed graciously and taken to a nice table. Party of five, legal office party, the valet kept the Mercedes van upfront as it couldn't be parked in a garage. Rob was our waiter. Was very patient with us. Not rushed at all. He gave the... More

The first time I went there cost almost as much as my rent at the time, but I always go back because over the course of what’s become probably over 100 visits, I’ve never had a bad experience. Not once. Today, I... More

We felt the restaurant was overrated. We had Thanksgiving lunch there. The ambiance was great and service very polite; however, it felt like more show than substance. After making the reservation I received reminder texts and a telephone call. There was a parade being held on the street at the hour of the reservation, and it would have been nice... More

I'm at 7 Capital Grilles now tried and while all are similar and a good value, this one stands out! I'm not much for chain restaurants anyhow, as they're a commodity, but from the gentleman who packed up our leftovers, to the servers, ALL the way up to the Managing Partner, Mr Ahrabin, this Grille behaves like a stand-alone, "this...
