My daughter and I had attended a great concert with Cher and Pat Benear at the MCI Center in DC. Afterwards we went to The Capital Grille for a delicious dinner of steak, baked potato and their wonderful grilled asparagus.

We had never before visited this Washington institution. From the moment we sat down, the outstanding service made my birthday dinner special. My steak was wonderful, loved the Parmesan truffle fries, yummy Brussels sprouts, and an extensive wine menu. Our server could not have been more attentive and engaging in just the right way. Even my birthday dessert from the... More

I have sponsored some great parties here, and always received top notch service. My favorite steak is bone-in ribeye. Rubs on the steak are also great.

As a charter member of the elcheepo society I rarely rate expensive restaurants highly but the Capital Grill is an exception! Service was superb as was the food and atmosphere. Try it for lunch when the prices are less to see if you agree.

I wish they had a larger private dinning... More
