    Another EXCELLENT experience at the Capital Grille in Downtown Chicago. Booked there a month ago for my wife's birthday and loved it. Booked again this past weekend for our anniversary and it was another excellent experience. Our server, Paul, was amazing. Always on top of things and had some great recommendations. Angel was quick to fill up the water or clear our plates. And, they gave us a small dessert plate with "Happy Anniversary" on it. Amazing experience, great location, excellent staff. Hightly recommended. Ask for Paul.

    Food was fine but nothing special - considering the price I would not consider it worth it. Ribeye was somewhat chewy; creamed corn appeared to have been made with canned corn. Flavors were decent but would not recommend for the value. They did honor our special occasion (anniversary) nicely!

    We had an extraordinary evening celebrating a birthday. We kept adding guests to our party until s few hours before our reservation and Kim was so helpful and flexible. We arrived to a beautifully set table with birthday confetti and a complimentary Prosecco toast. Our waiter, Paul, was beyond exceptional! He truly made our evening with his kindness, efficiency, and professionalism! Our party of 11 raved about their cocktails, entrees, sides, and desserts. I have eaten at several Capital Grilles in different cities, and it is always a great dinner, but last night was the very BEST ever!!

The steaks were cooked to perfection and the salad and add in’s delicious. They brought us a celebratory dessert that was wonderful. It could not have been better!! We will return next time we are in Chicago!

    Had a wonderful waitress and she was pleasant and respectful. The food, as always, was great, minus the steak tartare, which I didn’t like because of the dressing (?). Expensive, so plan on spending lots of money for a great meal.

    We often have lunch at the Capital Grille. It is a good option in the North Michigan Avenue area. Service seemed a little understaffed and stressed today. A couple of large parties. Drinks took forever but were later removed from the bill. Also my wife, who ordered her usual cocktail, did not like the drink. The food was wonderful as always. We had calamari, split the lobster salad which is a good option, and had entrees which we took home. The lunch special of soup or salad, and meal for $22 is a great bargain. The service this time was a blip and we will return because of the great food. I highly recommend the Capital Grille, especially for lunch.

    It was our wedding anniversary, and we arrive 5 minutes in advance but the restaurant were very crowded. We had to wait for 20 minutes until our table was ready at 21:15. But when we arrived in our table there was a card congratulating us, lots of little hearts on the table e two glasses of champagne on the house. I had the tuna fish with rice and it was amazing! My husband had the NY strip with pepper and cognac sauce. On the side, the asparagus and the mesh potatoes were joining everything in perfection. We actually order only one side but our attentive waiter offers to split in two small portions and it was great since we don’t eat a lot and two sides would be to much. At the and they brought us a cheesecake and a flourless chocolate with coffee cake. It was perfect to and our meal. Thanks to Capital Grille, we will be coming back!
