Unbelievably bad service - the servers in this place have no training whatsoever. They ignored us most of the time, we had to flag them down for every request. Not once did anyone ask us how everything was. I say they because it seemed we had a rotating crew - every time we saw one it was a different person.... More

We were six at a nice, spacious table with no setups, no napkins, nothing, an empty table. After speaking with three workers, we still had an empty table. Finally, a nice young woman delivered setups with napkins for five of us, and six small plates for our chips and stuff...three of the plates were filthy. Hidden in the stack, she... More

The first time here, I had a Turkey club, so good. Since then I have had fish and chips that is currently my most favorite and I usually go here for this one meal. Though their burgers are equally tasty. Staff is polite and not bothersome. I like the atmosphere.

I keep trying to like this place but I give up! A slow Sunday at 3:00ish, and after 5 or 10 minutes of being ignored by waitstaff hanging out at the bar, I finally asked the bartender to send us a waiter. Then it took another 10 minutes to get drinks although the place was mostly empty. .The waitstaff is... More

Nicely private booths seating up to six as well as a large open bar area with big screen tv - also a raised front seating room facing the street with window view - cheerful young waitstaff and a varied menu at reasonable prices - unique type of place for its part of town

A great place to meet friends for a football game, have some drinks, eat a delicious meal or just sit outside and enjoy their patio. The atmosphere is fun and lively. The service is ok and when we got our meal, one of the dinners was not made according to what was ordered. Besides these hiccups the meal was very... More

I really enjoy Santa Fe Capital Grill but I get disgusted on depending on the bartender that dictates the service. I tip well but not when I have to wait to get my credit card processed so I can get out. REALLY? Serve your customers quickly and cash them out quickly no excuses. Stop paying attention only to the ones... More

The front desk clerk at my motel recommended this restaurant, and I second her opinion. It is a bit hard to find because it is located in a shopping center, but once you find it I believe you will not be disappointed by the excellent hamburgers and the clean, modern decor. I ordered a local IPA suggested by my server,... More

For dinner with friends after the movies, the Capitol Grill is a good choice. Like the reviewer who said no onions and got them anyway, I said no pickles and there they were - a service quality control issue? Nonetheless my Capitol Burger (100% Angus Beef, New Mexico Hatch Green Chile, Bacon, and Cheddar.$11.95) when it finally came as ordered... More

The burgers were over done and nothing to write home about. I especially asked for no onions, but got them anyway. No one seems to understand that if you don't like the taste of red onions and you ask them to hold them and they don't, ultimately they ruined the burger because the taste is on it. I then ordered...
