Great food. With a good variety of choices. Wine isn't overly priced and good selection. But waiter we had was super defanitely would recommend. Only knock is the wait to get in. And host was on her phone. Not helping. Actually seemed bothered. Got past that. It's great.




Had the best time at the Capital Grille!!! Food was fantastic! Stephan, our server, was the best!

Think this is one of the best Capitol Grilles in the nation!

Only negative thing I could say about this restaurant is that it is a bit loud, but still could hold a conversation across the table.

A great place to share an intimate dinner, or a night out with the girls. I am a vegetarian, and though this place is known for steak, they were very accomidating for me!



Best signature drink in the USA ...

The Grille's Stoli Doli is the rockenest drink ever - and Angela, Sandra, and Noah are the rockenest bartenders ever. Loven this place.

Great Spot to Dine in

My wife and I love dinning at The Capital Grille for its calm atmosphere. I just want to thank our server on our last visit for the exceptional service - and the steak was to die for!

Divine Food & Exceptional Service

The Capital Grille on the Country Club Plaza is one of the finer restaurants in Kansas City, and this shows in the high quality foods and top-notch service they provide. I've eaten steaks from the east coast, southwest, British Columbia and everywhere in between; you'll be hard presssed to find a better steak anywhere. Don't put too much stock in the reviews by people from D.C.; its clear they know nothing of quality meat. Of course the midwest is ""cattle country"" so its no surprise that the best quality steaks are available in KC. The lobster mac is an amazing accompaniment that you must try on your next visit.

OK But .....

Capital Grille is good but for the price, the atmosphere and the food, it really is a 3 star place. In Washington, DC, I've encountered 'attitude' on a pretty regular basis. Their food for the price is really not up to par - reduce the price a notch or two and then, yes, it's good. The setting is very nice but taking the combo of all, it's a lot of hype in my opinion in their Washington, DC locations. Other places here are much better - it's that simple and true.

Significant disappointment.

Awful. I'm visiting from Washington DC where I have often eaten (happily) at the Capital Grille. This one was a pale imitation.

Here's the good news: we had no trouble finding a table at 7pm. Also, it so happens that I like second-hand smoke (seriously), so I rather enjoyed being near the guys smoking cigars in the bar area.

The bad news: The restaurant is dark and with the A/C running full blast in October it was freezing. Our waitress made a valiant effort to be professional but she was consistently slow or inadvertently inattentive. Ten minutes to get a glass of wine. Ten minutes to get the check. Our dinner -- considering the premium price -- was disgraceful. Steaks were huge but tasteless, and my guest's request for medium rare was met with a piece of uncooked meat. The potatoes au gratin were undercooked and chewy, the au gratin sauce was thin and tasteless, and the chef covered them with something resembling shake-and-bake crumbs. The glass of wine I ordered was served with perhaps two (small) fingers of wine in a huge glass -- my only thought was to send the waitress back to put more in the glass. All that and a tab over $125 (for two people, with one glass of wine apiece, no desserts). Sorry, but whoever is running the kitchen needs some refresher training.

My advice: go to Plaza III.

Excellent Food, service and atmosphere!

A savory place to relax and enjoy a wonderful dinner. There is Kansas City History on the walls, which makes for interesting viewing and conversation. This is a fantastic place to dine with friends or clients when you want to enjoy conversation between courses and have a wonderful meal.

Overall disapppointment

My family and I ate here the night after eating at the M & S Grille and the disappointment was palpable. With the exception of a very good steak, the side dishes were ho-hum, the salad was mediocre and the service was slightly ridiculous. We had more than one server and one did not know what the other was doing - therefore; very poor service overall. We asked to be seated in non-smoking and it always fascinates me when non-smoking is as close to the bar with no wall as you can possibly get. For my family this totally destroys the ambience of the restaurant and the flavor of the food. In comparison to the night before where our appetizer was fabulous, the steaks and seafood were without question some of the best, the salads were crisp and flavorful, the onion soup was to die for, the Cosmos were superb, the free dessert (not requested) was plate scraping wonderful and the service was outstanding - well, there is no comparison. My son had just turned 21 and our server at M & S was astute enough to note that and awarded us with this fabulous dessert to finish off our meal. It is little things like that in addition to the amazing food that gets people coming back - not for the snobbishness of saying we had eaten at The Capital Grille. We spent the weekend on the Plaza and of course I would not compare this to The California Pizza Kitchen or P.F. Chang's, but I feel it is a fair comparison to use the M & S Grille where the food is similar. I would not, nor would my two adult children or my brother ever recommend your establishment to anyone.

Great ambiance for a special occasion

We visited in Sept. 2006 to celebrate our 5th anniversary. I made a reservation and requested the back room. I was really glad we did this because on a busy Friday night, we wouldn't have been able to hear each other talk elsewhere in the restaurant.

The food was okay, but not worth the prices. We ordered an appetizer but our otherwise attentive waiter forgot to bring it out.

They did bring me a single, long-stem, red rose to commemorate our special occasion, which I thought was a nice touch.

I really recommend splurging to get a Stoli, which is their pineapple-infused Martini that they shake right at the table for you.

The Capital Grille is out of this world! The food is off the charts, the service is outstanding. Hands down....THE BEST for LARGE GROUPS!!! Shannon and Liz book the private rooms with smooth style. My wife and I had our rehearsal dinner at The Capital Grille and it was a night to remember! The tables were decorated beautifully and without instruction from us..they just did it...very nice touch.

It Doesn't Get Much Better...

Go back a couple of times and they know you by name. From the doorman to the busboys the staff is simply gracious. Absolutely outstanding food. Atmosphere is somewhat noisy but not distractingly so.
Whatever the tab may be, it was well worth the evening.
If you're on the Plaza, try the lunch menu sitting at the bar. You will not be disappointed.

Best Steak and service in Kansas City!

Dining at The Capital Grille is like being a KING for the evening. The Staff always seem to know who you are and what you want. I have wondered if they read minds?! The Sunday Jazz is a relaxing elegant close to the week. My Wife enjoys the Stoli Doli and I the Delmonico. The cheesecake is the absolute BEST in town! The Hostess will even seat your party with black napkins to keep lint off of your dark clothing! I often use The Capital Grille as an example to my Sales Staff, if my Staff can elevate to The Capital Grille's level of customer service....the sky is the limit!

Special Date

Our table was not level and rocked back and forth the entire experience. I'm a steak
guy and my ""Delmonico Steak"" was over cooked and full of gristle. The service was
attentive. They offered to replace the steak and ultimately removed it from the tab, but the fine dining experience was over and I was still hungry. Attention to detail in fine dining is a must. This restaurant has a excellent reputation, but they need to monitor the details that can ruin the experience.
stability and food quality in more detail.

The best steak I've ever had, and the service is second to none.

My first visit to the Capital will be followed by several more! Such a positive energy throughout the place. Two men behind the bar attacked drink orders with sheer athleticism(Dick Vermeil could use these guys on defense). I know they were only doing their jobs but what a show! I've NEVER had a waiter more excited about his job than Tim was. My husband wants him to be our waiter at home. I thought a steak with coffee grounds rubbed on it seemed odd but he made it sound so good I had to try. It was phenomenal. Best service ever.
