I ate lunch at Capital Grille in late February. Waited over 90 minutes for our food - eventually the entire meal was comp’d. Late lunch yesterday with few other diners in the room at 4 pm took 50 minutes to come out. Our waiter apologized for the delay. That phrase is becoming more commonplace. What’s going on Capital Grille?

The food and service were top notch. We all loved our food, and we appreciated the patience of the staff when our friends were late because of traffic.

Two questions - why did our friend get his car from the valet quickly, since he was asked on his phone to cluck here to get your car, and I was not asked to do that and had to wait an e tea ten minutes for my car? Also, why did some women get roses when they left the restaurant and some women did not?

Thanks.

Had a great dinner the other night. I'm a vegan but took my parents there since they love bone-in ribeye. They loved their steak and the sides. The restaurant made me a vegetable plate that was delicious!

Only negative was that we were late getting seated from our reservation. They didnt reserve a table for us outside. They kept asking if we wanted inside after specifically requesting outside in the reservation and verbally. We got a table but the tables were mismatched sizes. 😑

Overall excellent. However 2 issues. The parmesan fries are being overcooked for our taste. A little to burned. Before they were crispy but not burned. The filet mignon and rack of lamb were excellent. The other is on pouring the wine some was spilled on the table and the waiter did not put something on top to cover. Would still return and we have brought our dog with us and sat in the patio.

Wasn't very happy with my experience to say the least. As soon as we sat down we felt very rushed to order everything at once. We ordered cocktails and said we needed more time. We were asked again if we were ready to order so we ordered the lobster and crab cakes. I told the server we will start with the cakes than after that French onion soup and we still weren't ready to order our dinner because I didn't want to be rushed. The appetizer came out the same time as the soup which was very disappointing. I ordered a porcini rub rib eye with balsamic glaze when it came out it wasn't the right steak and was so RAW and chewy. Just completely disappointed!

After flying down from Chicago for Valentine’s Day we had reservations at another restaurant Thursday but after the service was terrible and food disappointing. I had to make it up to my wife somehow. So after searching for a good solid restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale area I found Capital Grille and since we have dined at their Chicago location in the past. We did not expect anything less than perfection. The level of service and knowledge from our server “Alina”. We were sat quick and the were met with smiles all around. The food was delicious, hot, and the servings were large. We started with lobster crab cakes. They were so tasty and the side corn salad put it over the top. My porterhouse with Brussels sprouts and bacon were cooked to perfection and both very tasty. My wife had tenderloin with lobster tail and Sam’s mashed potato’s. Delicious!!! Finally our server brought my wife a dessert for her birthday and a single red rose for Valentine’s Day. We eat all across our country usually weekend getaways at some of the best rated restaurants and the Capital Grille Ft. Lauderdale FL. experience tops out right at the top five. We definitely enjoyed our experience and recommend it to anyone looking for a delicious meal, fine dining experience without the stuffiness in the Ft. Lauderdale area. Needless to say my wife was very happy and forgot about the bad place we went to the night before. Thanks again. Love from Chicago!
