All the Capital Grilles are very similar, both in menu and atmosphere. A very nice place to go for any special occasion. $$$, but all the items are very well prepared and good service. Share plates and you can keep the cost to a fine night out on a reasonable budget.

I order the veggie platter every time I go. It's a lot of food and the atmosphere is very nice. On birthdays they go the extra mile to ensure it is special.

Went on an impromptu dinner date with my husband last night. Got right in with no wait and enjoyed a fantastic dinner.

There are several exclusive steakhouse restaurants in the Uptown area that are equally as good at the same price point. I don't mind paying for a name but I expect the food to be excellent and I can't say that about The Capital Grill... More

My boyfriend and I celebrated my birthday here and we had a fabulous experience. They decorated the table for the occasion and had a card waiting for me. Service was great and food was wonderful. We got mac and cheese and brussels sprouts for sides and we're still talking about them! We will be back!

The steak dinner here with friends was perfection. The crab cakes and crab bisque appetizers were delightful and our steaks were excellent. Expert help was given for our wine selection and a great choice was made. The service was attentive and friendly and they did not seem to mind that we stayed so long to visit with friends we had...

We chose this place from the Internet and we were not disappointed. Perfect setting to renew an old friendship while dining superbly. Great meat, good wine, just the right amount of attention. A bit pricey - but a special occasion.
