“Great Bar Drinks and Food For Solo Dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2012

Been to Capital Grille in many cities with associates and never disappointed. Found myself in Indianapolis on a "solo" trip. Went to the Capital Grille and sat at the bar. Was welcomed by Chris who was tending the bar. He fixed one of the best Old Fashions cocktails I have had in a while. I ordered their beef tenderloin sliders and a cup of clam chowder. All was served hot and was delicious. He was also very interactive with other patrons. One patron ordered a filet med rare, but was unhappy because it was served more done than desired. No problem, it was returned, new steak and side dish provided along with a complimentary glass of wine. All was very professional. The replacement steak was served by the manager on duty.

“Good Enough, But Not That Great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2012

I have been the Capital Grille about 4 times. Each time the experience was the same. The food was good, but not close to the expectation for a Conrad Hilton facility. The service was polite, but not really what you would expect from a Conrad Hilton facility. The price was very high give the quality of food and service. Overall, there is no real complaint other than it did not live up to the reputation of the name and the price paid.

“Good food for sure!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2012

This place is just good no matter what you get. It's not cheap, but they make it worth your while. It can get pretty busy in there, so make sure you have a reservation, or you might find yourself with quite a wait. My absolute favorite thing on their menu is the plank grilled salmon. It is amazing. Try it. Love it. Get some more.
