Perfect place for a birthday dinner. The steaks are outstanding! We loved the gorgonzola and truffle crusted filet (on the menu it was a NY Strip but you can ask to have any steak prepared this way.) Must-try appetizers are the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella and the tuna tartare. Our server Kenny G was excellent; ask for him!

My husband took me to The Capital Grille on Valentine's day. It was very nice atmosphere. They were busy due to it was valentine's day so I believe that why the service was a bit too slow but forgivable as everything came out correctly.

I have the wonderful opportunity to plan meetings for large groups of teens and adults. I have worked with several great restaurants in the area and Capital Grille is at the top. Ms. Gibson is one of the most helpful event planners I have encountered. I highly recommend using Capital Grille for any of your special events.

Capital is SO EVERYTHING! Delicious, beautiful atmosphere, scrumptious food, the drinks are nectar from the heavens, the staff is the best, the valets are discreet, it is a totally fabulous dining experience again and again ~ don't miss the lobster mac, creamed spinach and any of the deserts. Enjoy!

Dined here several times now and don't think I will go back. have eaten at other similar rest. in the Downtown area of Pittsburgh and this is the worst of them. The one thing they have going for them is great staff & bartenders.

We originally came to The Capital Grill one year after my 22 year old daughters brain surgery. We came here to celebrate her life. They made the night unbelievable. We have returned every year on her anniversary. This evening we came during restaurant week and asked for our special server Heather. We're not disappointed. Unbelievable service best steak I have...
