Oh I do love me some Capital Grille. The service here is impeccable. This is one of the only restaurants where the servers are in the practice of handing out business cards that I actually end up KEEPING them. Service really is that good. But of course, good service isn't enough. Gladly, I can report that I have never had a meal hear that was less than exceptional. I have been to some of the most renowned steakhouses in Dallas and in my opinion, the filet at Capital Grille outshines all of these experiences. The salmon is also outstanding. In lieu of an appetizer, try the lobster bisque. And DEFINITELY save room for dessert.

hit or miss but mostly a HIT!

My first 2 visits: Outstanding and put CG at the top of my big D steakhouse list with outstanding service, yummy and very strong house pinapple martinis, and scrumptious mouth watering filet mignon...

3rd visit: not as impressed: Service slow and not as friendly, wrong appetizer brought out the first time, but they made up for it with an excellent crab topped steak and surprise desert courtesy of the chef which definitely made up for the earlier slip up!!

Definitely worth a try if you haven't been!

Outstanding Service.......Dry Steak

Went here for my wife's birthday on March 7th. The service is outstanding and the appetizer also was great. However, the steak really disappointed me. It was a very dry 10oz Fillet. Maybe their other cuts are better, but it just did not match up to a Bob's or Del Friscos.

I really wanted to like this place because the experience is great. But, I would not recommend this restaurant if you want a top notch fillet.

Great food and service

I went with some colleagues to celebrate a milestone anniversary at my workplace. The hosts greeted us and seated us right away. Our server was attentive and called me by name. The whole staff had signed an anniversary card for me on the table. The steak was delicious, as were the appetizers (the special lobster bisque was heavenly). He provided a complimentary dessert that looked delicious but I was too stuffed to eat it!

Horrific Service

My husband and I recently attempted to have a nice date night at the Capital Grille. We arrived 15 minutes early for our 8:00 PM reservation on a Saturday evening, checked in with the host, and proceeded to wait nearly one hour for our table. We let him know we would be in the bar, so that he could easily let us know when our table was ready. ONE HOUR later we had not yet been seated. My husband had to check with the host several times regarding when our table might be ready, and only after waiting 30 minutes past our start time did anyone proactively approach us to apologize for the delay. I understand that Saturday is a busy night for any restaurant, but I've had better service at Chili's! We were finally seated and whisked through the main dining rooms, past several prime open tables, only to be placed in the corner of a dark back room with no other guests. At that point we decided that our business was obviously not appreciated, and we decided to leave. While the Manager did apologize profusely to my husband, we decided to take our business elsewhere. I will say that I have had wonderful dining experiences at the Kansas City and Houston Capital Grille, but it seems that the Dallas Capital Grille is not up to par.

Excellent Special Occasion Restaurant

We went to Capital Grille (uptown) for our anniversary last year and were very, very impressed.
First of all - if you are celebrating a special occasion, be sure to let them know when you make reservations! We got there to find that our table had ""Happy Anniversary"" confetti sprinkled down the middle, a card signed by staff; a complimentary photograph was taken, our dessert was on the house, and I (the lady) was given a rose. Lovely experience!
Now to the food...can I just say DROOL....! OMG...I ordered the French Onion Soup as an appetizer, and it is the best I've ever had; hubby had the lobster bisque and said it was the 2nd best he's had, the first being when he was on a business trip in Maine, so there you go.
My filet mignon was positively melt-in-your-mouth delectable, as were the garlic potatoes, and hubby loved his steak and asparagus as well.
Service was impeccable; our waiter was not only very knowledgeable but also very friendly, didn't talk down to us at all (as wait staff in upscale restaurants can sometimes do), and, when we admitted we're not exactly Rockefellers and asked for a mid-price range wine for dinner, he was very helpful without being one bit condescending. Very impressive.

All that being said - I noted ""Special Occasion Restaurant"" for a reason: this place ain't cheap, or even mid-range. Most of us are not wealthy, and I'm assuming that if you're here, you're doing your research for a great place to celebrate. I can tell you that the 2 of us spent around $250.00 on pre-dinner drinks, appetizers, dinner, and a bottle of wine. For us, that's very pricey. But if it's a special occasion and you can afford it, I can HIGHLY recommend The Capital Grille.

Amazing service and personal attention - Best place for Anniversary, etc

Excellent service. Good quantity. We went for anniversary - there was a card waiting for us. They also took a photograph of us and gave a small portrait. When I was overwhelmed with one of the dishes and could not eat it ( as I was full) , they did not even charge me for it. Highly recommend this place for anyone

worst thing ever!

I really dont understand why this place gets so many good reviews. Seriously, worst steak house ive ever been to. I was actually looking forward to it because my cousin went for her anniversary and they were raving about how great it was. But when me and my boyfriend went, it was horrible. The service was beyond ridiculous. I have been to way better steak houses. My boyfriend actually works in uptown and he knows good service when he sees it. Our server was very rude, she was hardly there, I have no idea what her name was cause she did not introduce herself once, and I guess she thought we weren't even supposed to be there because she paid no mind to us. The food itself was decent but I couldn't even enjoy it because our waitress was staring at me from across the room just mean muggin me. Like she was ready for us to leave. Funny thing is, I am a great tipper but that day, I was so ready to just not even tip! thats how bad and awkward it was.

Exceptional Representation of a Staple

I've been to a few Capital Grilles about the country, and this location lives up to the reputation. I am glad that the service and food are consistently excellent. Great drinks and a fantastic location make this a great place for a business meeting or a nice dinner with the wife.

Fantastic Experience

We expect great things from The Capital Grille, and as always, we weren't dissapointed. From the greeting when we walked through the door throughout the evening we thouroughly enjoyed every aspect of the experience. We told the host it was our anniversary and we were treated to a card on the table, a personalized dessert, and fabulous service. Obviously the food was without compare as well. The Capital Grille is the benchmark against which we compare other restaurants and to date, none have even come close.

A truly memorable meal!

Our party of four had a marvelous meal at The Capital Grille in Dallas. Exquisite setting, attentive service and fabulous food in surprisingly enormous portions. This was our first visit to The Capital Grille and it was everything we hoped it would be. It's our new favorite spot in Dallas for fine dining.

A new standard

We went to the Grille for the first time and were blown away by everything. From the complimentary valet parking to the great atmosphere to the tremendous service and last but not least the amazing food. We have a new standard for restaurants now. We had sirloin steaks, au gratin potatoes and a must have the Lobster Mac and Cheese. Best food I've ever eaten. If you want a comfortable eating environment (no jacket required, jeans ok) and real food without all the ""fru-fru"" hype of some pricey places, this is where you need to go. You will not be looking for your tiny food on a huge plate here. Generous portions were the standard. We will be back.
