A benchmark restaurant and experience, but you will pay the price, and worth it. Wish I could remember our waitress' name because she was the best waitress I've ever encountered, from knowing the menu to the source of the food to wine pairings , etc, she was incredible. Calamari and tuna tartare for appetizers - both superb. Gorgonzola NY steak was excellent, porcini rubbed rib eye was incredible; porterhouse was superb but seemed a bit "light" on the 24oz part; and raves on the filet mignon. Sides of au gratin potatoes, creamed spinach and asparagus topped off a perfect meal. Overall a wonderful experience!

Capital Grille does it all well. The service from our waiter Miguel was truly outstanding, friendly, attentive, and joyful. The ambiance was also just right, “steakhouse modern” might be the term. Remarkably quiet, it has a warm and elegant glow.

The bread was “to die for,” a dangerous basket variety of spectacular bread. I could have made bread my entire meal. Our oysters were superb and the Brussels sprouts were delightfully tangy.

The only note of imperfection was the $60 veal chop, which looked great, was cooked just right, and presented artfully. But the chop was not consistently good meat, tough and grisly in places. So the fault lies with the meat procurer or chef, who should have known the less than perfect quality of the chop. A $60 chop should be perfect meat. My wife also had the veal chop, which she was similarly unhappy with. In retrospect, we should have sent the chops back. I’m sure that Miguel and the chef would have gladly replaced our chops.

We were invited to celebrate a friend's 60th birthday party. The staff was very attentive and made the entire group feel like we were the only guest in the restaurant - when it was completely packed. Steaks were done perfectly. Highly recommend for that special occassion.

By far this is one of the great Darden brand's.
I have little negative to say about it.

the steaks were priced right and respectable.

Place was packed. Greeted warmly. Excellent waitstaff. Menu unchanged. Filet cooked perfectly but cold. New one out in 10 minutes. Brussel Sprouts incredible. Great desserts. Definitely would go back.
