I've been there several times with different servers. My favorites are Claude, Beverly and Molly. All are great and personal. I've been in other steakhouses where the noise is loud but not here.
Been there by myself at the bar and up to 8 of us. Always great service.

Our server’s name was Molly she did a great job and I really enjoyed my time with my family. The food and drinks were fantastic. Molly answered all our questions and make sure my moms food was made correctly due to a good allergy. Will definitely return.

the food was terrific, but our first drink order took forever, and our waitress Ashley said there were no issues at the bar, so why the wait? we had 1 glass wine and 1 mixed drink, very easy.
she was nice but seemed very forgetful about small details and it was not that crowded yet - it was before 6 pm! for example, later on with dessert, she knew we were going to split 2 desserts, yet we didn't get dessert plates or utensils. ! she asked if I wanted refill on coffee, but didn't bring it. I had to ask busboy Benny who was really great. also my coffee cup was way smaller than a neighbor's, so not sure what was going on? However, Ashley's food recommendations the entire meal were top notch from entrees to dessert.. she suggested the strip steak for my sister, PERFECT AND TO DIE FOR. I had the bone-in filet with the pepper sauce from another cut, TO DIE FOR. her dessert choices were also good. But she also thought of bringing us a heavier knife to cut the burrata bread with, saying it can be harder, she was absolutely right. in short, i'll come back for the food and service since Ashley was so nice... and the other items are minor quibbles. always loved Capital Grille.

It was too bright but we were seated by the kitchen. Our server was great and a lot of personality. My husband’s steak was incredible, but my swordfish was just okay for the steep price point. We had a nice meal but did not feel the experience was worth the price. We will not be in a rush to return.

Food and service was excellent. The calamari for appetizer was great as usual. Had the filet, lobster mac & cheese and brussel sprouts. Everything was tasty and cooked to perfection. Took our son for his 16th birthday and they surprised him with a birthday desert. Nice treat! Will definitely go back.

We had dinner there for NYE. The restaurant was very nice and the food was delicious. My son had the porterhouse steak, med well and spinach, my husband had the NY strip steak, medium and asparagus and I had the filet mignon, well done, with au gratin potatoes. My husband and son loved their steaks. Mine wasn't as tender as I was expecting. The potatoes were a little bland. We also had crème brûlée and blackberry sorbet. The sorbet was delicious; It was light and fruity. The service was good and staff was friendly. Since we were sitting near the bathroom, I noticed that people were escorted to the bathroom by staff.

A little disappointed in my last visit. The food wasn’t as good in our past visits and the service was for sure not worth the money. We went for lunch on 12-31 and left feeling like it really wasn’t worth it. Not sure if we would return.

Capital Grill never disappoints! Excellent food. Impecible service. Only downside is that the calories for each item is listed on the menu. Some of these numbers were large! This is the law, and it allows you to select the correct option for you!

Visited on Christmas Eve for the first time and couldn’t have been more disappointed. Server was inattentive and forgetful, dining room was drafty and cold, many kids screaming and running about. (Not the intimate, first-class atmosphere I’d anticipated!) Chef’s recommendation of sliced filet was burnt, tough and chewy! (Asked for cooked medium?) Shared sides of lobster Mac ‘n’ cheese and Au Gratin potatoes were hard and tasteless. For the prices charged I was expecting savory and delicious. Do not recommend and will advise others not to waste their money.

Steak was amazing! So were the truffle fries. The only negative thing I have to say is towards the end of our visit a party of about 8 came in and I felt that we were then less important.

Very disappointed in what is normally excellent service. Our waiter did not bring small forks for seafood platter despite asking twice. Could not find him when we wanted to order something else, not could the other waiter we asked. Dropped off dessert menus and never came back for the order. Had to ask the Manager for a check.
