My husband and I go to this restaurant a few times a year. We are always treated well and some of the staff remember us which is nice. We have tried a few new restaurants that have popped up but none compare to Capital Grill. We didn't wait too long after our reservation to be seated. We were seated at... More

Capital Grille remains one of our favorite restaurants in Kansas City. They have a new shrimp dish that is Amazing. It's like shrimp scampi, only better in my opinion It's served in a small cast iron skillet. Jumbo shrimp.... Excellent steaks. The shrimp dish is only 20.00 during lunch and includes one of their delicious salads or soup. The service... More

The last few times I've been to this location, we've had cold food. Seems like it must happen often, because mgrs weren't remorseful. Steady decline it seems.

Have eaten in Capital Grills in Fort Lauderdale, New York and twice in Kansas City. Would give the Florida and New York restaurants 5 stars. For some reason the meat in Kansas City was very mediocre and not on a par with the Ruth Chris Steakhouse (now closed) and "37" (in Harrah's Casino), yet the same high end price. Cannot... More

I've been to this Capital Grille several times for lunch and had excellent dining experiences but I was there tonight with two guests from out of town and very disappointed. I have no idea how my guests felt about their meal because they were very polite. They seemed to enjoy their dishes but my meal wasn't good. I ordered a... More

We just dropped in for a drink before we headed off to dinner. However we ended up staying . A table opened up in the bar area. The service for how crowded it was, well it was awesome! Loved our waitress! We decided just to do drinks and appetizers. Started with my favorite The Stoli Doli. This is a must... More

I went to the Capital Grille in KC for a business dinner/meeting. The service was excellent as you would expect. The food was great but I have had better at other Capital Grille's. The food was by no means bad - it was great - 9 out of 10.

We walked in here unawares during Restaurant Week in KC. It was crazy busy but we managed to snag a little table in the bar where there is open seating. In spite of the wildly chaotic looking scene we got really good food without a huge wait and absolutely flawless service. What a treat!

I recently dined here for Restaurant Week and was blown away by how incredible it was. I had been to other Capital Grilles, but this one is by far the best. Saul was a wonderful waiter who gave fantastic recommendations for wine. The filet was perfectly cooked to a medium rare, with the added herb butter giving it a wonderful... More

A somewhat disappointing kickoff to KC Restaurant Week. We both had the steak for our main entree, and it was COLD. Like it had been cooked an hour before, then just sat on a counter waiting for someone to order it. Dessert was creme brûlée, and it was ice cold also. That may be the way they do it, but... More

In the heart of Country Club Plaza and the mind of the true steak aficionado. The “city of fountains” is overflowing with luck as it is also the city of our dry aged, hand cut beef. Come see why one Ingram’s critic wrote, “I was speechless.” Two new private dining rooms now give you a grand choice of five in which to be speechless yourself.
