    Thank you for making our son's birthday special! You had a hand written birthday card, confetti on the table and everyone welcomed us and wished him a happy birthday! Our two servers, Jessica and I think Jennifer were outstanding! They were so attentive, knowledgeable of the menu and super friendly. Thank you ladies and staff for a wonderful, first time visit!

    Started badly but improved. Started badly with hostess(es) who seated us at the table closest to the entrance and restrooms ... despite having a reservation. Then the hostess asked if we were celebrating a birthday. When I replied no, she said she would take the decorations (sprinkles and a card) off the table. We moved to a more private booth, thankfully, and had a great waiter - Bob. He's the best waiter I've had, although I've only been to that restaurant three times. Food, wine and service were very good.

    Meals were excellent! As for service; we felt rushed by the waitress! She brought out a meal we did not order. She "thought" that was what we ordered. She admitted that she wasn't sure, but failed to check. The meal in question was for our quests helping us celebrate our Anniversary!

    Capital Grille rolled out the red carpet for our 35th wedding anniversary. From the roses on the table to the complimentary champagne and dessert. The service from Soufiane (aka the General) was flawless and made the evening spectacular. You know you hit a home run when my wife says “that was the best evening we’ve had in a very long time.” She is a tough customer and Team Capital Gille nailed it.

    Lovely setting in a 1950’s club-like setting with music of the same era. My husband had the lunch “Plate” beginning with clam chowder, and the mini-tenderloins sandwich (2) with Parmesan truffle fries. I started with a cup of the French onion soup and had the ribeye sandwich. Good wine pour and nice bourbon cocktail. We left full and happy. Not inexpensive, but totally worth it for a very special lunch.

    This establishment is run like a well oiled machine. It is obvious that the managing partner has hired and trained top notch talent. No small detail goes unnoticed. Your every need will be addressed. I visit capital grills all over the country and this is the best run location that I found.Kudos to the entire staff.

    Exceptional service. Nice extras as we celebrated an anniversary. Food was amazing as you would expect from Capital Grill. Meats were priced at premium but the sides we’re reasonable for a comparable steak house. Only downside of the experience was the noise. We went at 5 PM on a Sunday, so our room was filled with kids. One group had six small kids at one table and the moms ignored them and sat at a separate table. Needless to say the crying babies and smalls ones running around the room playing noisy games were a distraction. Best to stay away from the early Sunday dinner. No fault of the restaurant or staff, just some inconsiderate parents (4 couples) with enough money to have an informal meal out with all the little ones in tow (2 babies and 4 runners).

    We were directed to a table rather than the booth I specifically reserved for a very special occasion. Eventually, they made it right. Waiter was extremely difficult to understand due to a thick accent and his voice being muffled by his mask. Rather than letting us make our menu choices, he was quite pushy that we order his suggestions. Service was below fair and food was only mediocre. Our bill, including tip, was $600. for 3 people. Though I had stated so when I made online reservation, no acknowledgement of the special occasional we were celebrating was ever mentioned, nor a complimentary dessert offered. This was our second time dining at the Capital Grille in Fairfax, VA. Our first experience wasn’t stellar either. We don’t intend to return.

    Worst service ever. Condescending. Opened three bottles of wine.. none was offered to taste before.. she just poured on.. pouring pinot into Bordeaux glasses, or is that the new covid normal?! Main course arrived and we were still seating there with dirty app plates and silverware.. not having steak knives for our steaks at a steakhouse until we ask?!? Too bad because the ribeye was cooked to perfection
