Came for an anniversary dinner, and our waiter went way out of his way to provide amazing service. Between the perfect meal we had, the wonderful ambiance, and the outstanding service, we had a very very special celebration.

We go there very often Ecuador of the good food and nice ambiance but the last two times the food has come out wrong, steak over cooked, lunch burger bread burned and burger meat very small.
We are disappointed on what’s going on with the quality of their food, and the service also not the greatest, servers seem to take a long time to come back and check on their table after serving the food to see how everything is or to offer another cocktail

We loved our dinner at Capital Grille. But i did note to our server and to the front desk that they had seated the two of us in a tiny side room along with another couple and a four top table with two VERY LOUD couples.
i suggested to the front desk that perhaps that tiny room should only be set for couples as with two couples at that four top, they felt the need to keep a constant chatter going to the level that my husband and i could barely hear each other speaking which definitely lessened our enjoyment of the evening. we saw one couple be seated in the room and with that loud table, the husband of that couple asked to be moved. i wished we had...
Otherwise the food was delicious and our server, Jean was very kind and attentive.

Very disappointed in NY Strip. Not tender at all. To the restaurant’s credit they did try to correct it with another steak but it still was still not good, certainly not what we had two months before. Very tough. Also the bone in filet mignon was also not as good as past regular filet mignon. So, if this had been my first visit, I would not return. But previous visits, food has been excellent so I’ll just chalk this up to being a very bad night.

I took two friends to Capital Grille for a birthday lunch. We could not have been any happier. The food (lobster rolls x3) were absolutely delicious! Chris, our server was super attentive and took care of every detail. There was a personalized birthday note on the table, roses for each of us and complimentary delicious desserts for both girls. I am loving Capital Grille and I am so picky so that says a lot!

The food and service were great but our choice to sit outside led to the uncontrollable i.e., cigarette smokers and traffic noise. We certainly plan to come back to the restaurant, but we’ll have to be more strategic about where we sit.

I am a regular at this restaurant and usually the food and service is good. However, on this evening, the waiter was approaching rude (very abrupt) and my food was not good. Shrimp cocktail was dry and Filet Mignon was dry. I had to ask for bread plates, water, etc

Our evening was wonderful. It all began with Danielle who was wonderful and then our server Aundrea took that wonderful treatment to the next level for the duration of the evening. They truly made our evening there wonderful and to usher in the New Year made it even more special. We have been going to the Ft. Lauderdale Galleria restaurant for many years and we will continue for many more. Thanks for a WONDERFUL start to the New Year .

I love the Capital Grille and go there frequently especially for special occasions. This was my sister’s birthday. The main problem was the service. Typically it’s outstanding. The server we had didn’t know about some of the options offered and didn’t understand what one member of our party wanted despite the fact that it was made abundantly clear. Capital Grille is excellent when it comes to accommodating special requests. This evening that wasn’t the case. The service was also morbidly slow. Our servers attention seemed to be focused on her big parties and we got left in the dust so to speak. Restitution was made promptly with effusive apologies from management. Wine service with the coravin offering top picks by the glass was outstanding, as expected.
Another annoying problem was people bringing babies and very young children. This occurred after 9:00 in the evening so the results were as expected. Crying babies and restless toddlers. Management said they could do nothing about it. I have dined in many high end restaurants around the world. Many have dress and age limit policies. At the very least a time limit policy could be instituted for those too stupid to know that young children shouldn’t be up at all hours of the night. It spoils the evening for the adults in the restaurant. Corporate in the Darden group needs to look into this. This isn’t the Olive Garden!!
I have an occasion coming up soon where I’ve been requested to reserve the Capital Grille. I’m going to do this because the food is so good and the person I’m meeting with has no Capital Grille near where he lives. I hope things will be back to normal then.

Great dinner! I wish I remembered our servers name because she was excellent. Only negative was that we sat outside next to a door and there were people bring items in and out from their car for a party they were having inside, I think they should bring them in through the front so not to interrupt other people’s dinner.

As always, the Capital Grille’s food is always amazing! Lunch there is particularly tasty- I love the tenderloins sandwiches. Jerry, our waiter was outstanding and thinking ahead. He was able to bring us some of the dark raisin bread that is usually not available at lunch. He added to our holiday get together (since he knew we were celebrating) he brought us some champagne! Everything was perfect. Thanks Jerry & CG :-)

Very nice night. Food as always excellent! We usually have Maria but Audrey was outstanding in all aspects aided by Moe. Enjoyed the tranquility having three tables set up in the private dining room. There was another customer who went out of his way to harass the staff for no cause other than being an ####.

My experience with this visit was 5 star. Attention to detail, very attentive service, timing from meal order to delivery was right-on, food was made exactly as everyone asked for it, and value was there. I hosted a total of nine guests celebrating three separate anniversaries and each one was treated like they owned the restaurant.
Great organization!
