The food may have been decent...but the HORRIBLE service was so much, that I will gladly write this place off for good.
Our server was beyond rude...it was insulting and embarrassing. We were treated as though we were not good enough to be there throughout the entire meal....in the meantime, the restaurant was filled with thugs who couldn't even bother to take off their flat-billed hats.
If you're going to charge me $10 for a side of over-cooked asparagus, the least I'd expect is an enforced dress code...a little class never hurt anyone's business.
Our waiter's name was Jermaine....and knew nothing about the wine menu, or at least he sure was good at pretending to be clueless. He rushed us through the ordering process. Everything that came out of his mouth was very short and was accompanied by an awful attitude. And the cherry on top....he came over to the crumb the table and swept all the crumbs into my friend's lap and caused a kink in the table cloth...when that happened he stood there rolling his eyes until my friend had to straighten out the cloth for him to continue throwing crumbs in his lap. I almost lost it.
Never returning to that over-rated restaurant again. There are plenty of other MUCH MUCH better steakhouses/fine dining options in Buckhead.

The service is always impeccable. I was seated within 1 minute of walking into the restaurant. My server, was warm, engaging and helpful with recommendations.
She made a four-star chain restaurant feel like you were in her home and she was the ultimate hostess. I ordered the pan seared tenderloin and buttered lobster, which I can only describe as two filet ""boats"" with lobster ""oars"", in a river of smooth, buttery, whipped potatoes. Just divine.
Portions were enormous and we definitely could have done without the 2 appetizer and 2 side dishes. But the highlight of the evening was the gratuitous lemon tart and a lovely bottle of malbec.

This has to be one my favorite steak restaurants in Atlanta, I am always treated so well there and the choice of food is first class.
I have also tried the Capital Grille in Philadelphia and Las Vegas and both are on par with the Grille in Buckhead Atlanta.
Keep up the good work and service guys your doing a great job.

If anything, you have to go here at least once to experience the view. The food is definitely pricey but it is well worth it considering the quality of the food and exceptional service. Our server consistently checked on us even though we closed the house. The wine list is extensive and the best in town, need i say Atlanta. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted at the door and even by the manager who later stopped by our table again to thank us for coming in. The meats offered here are extremely high quality but there is definitely not many vegetarian options for anyone who is not looking to eat meat. Also, the complimentary valet parking was a nice to have as well. And again, one of the best views of the city.

It was my 42nd birthday and because this place was so highly recommended by a friend who visited a week ago, I ask my boyfriend to take me there. I wanted a different experience, and I got just that at Capital Grille. The Food was awesome and the service was just as good. I have been to numerous restaurants throughout the Buckhead corridor, and never have experienced such an excellent combination of service and great food. I strongly recommend anyone who is looking for a good evening at an upscale restaurant with a classy staff choose Capital Grille. This is the place to be.

When you go to a place with a price tag like this, you have quite high expectations. Capital Grille failed very highly in the service area. Not only were our reservations requests ignored, they placed us next to the waiters' drink station, so I was constantly bumped all evening and nearly had a tray of food dumped down my friend's back.
The waiter took about 10 minutes at the start to tell us everything on the menu as if we were unable to read.
The food runners were not polite and arrogantly deliverd the food after asking, ""who had the salmon?""... I have gone to chain restaurants that know where the orders go. I had to beg for refills on our drinks.
I was extremely disappointed and the food was good, but for that price, your high expectations will not be met. There are MUCH BETTER restaurants in Atlanta.

It's not much to say but this is my favorite restaurant and the food is outstanding. The crab cakes are to die for!! If you are looking for a place that is going to give you great service and excellent food this is the place. My brother did his engagement here also and they really made it nice for him. Thanks for all the great dinning nights I have had there.

I think this place is great, but not fantastic. The food is excellent. The view from the bar and dining area is excellent. The staff is not so excellent. Most people that go to this restaurant are probably attending for a paticular occasion. For that reason alone, the staff should treat you accordingly. Unfortunately I did not get that warm feeling you should get from an important evening out. Now, let me say that know person was particularly rude. Although it was seriously lacking that southern hospitality that you get from many of the fine restaurants in Atlanta...

This was my first visit to this restaurant to celebrate a promotion and I have to say that I was completely satified by alll aspects of this establishment. I was fortunate enough to get a table that overlooked the beautiful Atlanta sklyline at night. The filet mingnot was delicious...tender, juicy, oh man my mouth is watering thinking about it. The service was great, the server was very knowledgeable of all specials and was very attentive while giving us the privacy that would be expected at a this type of restaurant. Romantic setting for a date if you think she is worth the high bill. I had such a great time that the bill didn't matter but be prepared.

The decor seems to be an intentional cliche -- dark wood paneling, moose and deer heads, bad painted portraits of rich people. But there's a nice view of the city, and you're not there for the decor anyway. My first visit was last night. The service was terrific -- attentive but unobtrusive. Patrons are treated very well. My wife and a friend wanted to share an order of lobster and a steak and were going to divide it up after it was served. The waiter said the kitchen could divide it for them and cook the meat as each preferred. They said the lobster was very good, though I didn't try it myself. They recommend it with the hollandaise that accompanies the asparagus. The steak they got was the same as mine - the Delmonico with a porcini and balsamic rub. As served, it seemed laughably enormous, but not as I dug in. It was fabulous. But the winner of the night was the fries. Yes, the fries. With grated parmesan and white truffle oil. The texture was exquisite. Amazing. With a recommended Oregon Syrah, all was right. The bill was through the roof, but we were celebrating a birthday, and at least we didn't pay that much while being unsatisfied with the meal.

When I first saw the menu, I knew we had chosen the right place for our anniversary. All steak houses have steak, but The Capital Grille offered many seafood options as well, I wanted it all. We shared classics like shrimp cocktail, clam chowder, and ceasar salad for our appetizers. My wife chose the live Maine lobster, and I had decided to get a steak before we ever made the reservation. There were so many steaks to choose from but I decided on the specialty of the house, the dry aged porterhouse. There were many other selections that I also wanted to try, so when our server explained that I could basically create my own steak, I mixed and matched some of the suggestions on the menu and had my porterhouse with the porcini mushroom rub and the sauteed wild mushrooms and cippolini onions. The most tender and flavorful steak I have ever put in my mouth. The essence of fig and balsamico were perfect compliments to the steak. My wife's lobster was exceptional. We also shared the best creamed spinach I've ever had and the au gratin potates were amazing. The service was impecible. Not only was our server knowledgeable about the menu, which showed during the explanation of the daily specials and the specialties, but she also anticipated our needs. She was truly happy to be waiting on us.
It was the little things that Stephanie did for us on this occasion that made our anniversary dinner unforgettable. Candles and rose petals were on the table when we were seated, she offered us a glass of champagne to start the evening, suggested perfect wines to compliment our entrees, then brought a flourless chocolate espresso cake for dessert. I love watching the flow of a busy restaurant, and the staff at The Capital Grille didn't miss a beat. Friendly, courteous, attentive but unobtrusive, precise, clean, and organized. Everyone seemed to enjoy making this the best dinner we have ever had. We will definately be returning.
