Went to the Capital Grille for our anniversary dinner date. Out table had a card wishing us Happy Anniversary and heart confetti - nice touch. Josh was very attentive without being intrusive, he made great suggestions on our meals and a very good wine. Was very impressed that the managers visited each table to ensure the dining experience was top notch. Very enjoyable evening.

We decided on Capital Grille for restaurant week in Baltimore. We have been there before for functions and found it amazing. Have to say this experience not as amazing. The steaks that we ordered were not cooked as requested. Some too rare others not rare. The wedge salad was very good but they really skimped on the desserts which I thought was different. The wait staff really not that great as well not very attentive . I think because we were utilizing restaurant week we were not treated like a regular customer.

Food was decent. Service was just OK. Entrees came before we even finished out appetizers and we were told if we weren't done to just put our plates to the side... Check was brought straight with dessert as if to signal to hurry up. The service is not the quality I expected at such a restaurant.

I am so disappointed in my dinner last night. I was just in the hospital and looking forward to a nice night out and celebrate my 50th birthday. I have NEVER been to Capital Grill and my steak come out correct at medium temperature. Every time I send it back and then it is burnt. The people in my party are finished there meal and I eat alone. Our server was slow,, no personality and kept disappearing. We were able to find other people to help. Also, we said we were not in a rush and wanted a “dining” experience. We were done in an hour. Due to my health I do not get out as often as I would like so when I do and have such a disappointing experience it makes me sad. Obviously I will not be returning.

We went for restaurant week, great menu! We were seated in an odd spot by the bar and the hostesses stand so we had a lot of people around us, which kind of killed our date night mood. But the food was wonderful and our waiter was tentative and nice.

We visited during Restaurant Week and were very impressed! Josh was our server and when he first greeted us, we knew we were in good hands.
Our steaks were the best we have ever had and the creamed spinach and lobster mac and cheese were to die for! Josh’s wine pairings were equally impressive within our budget.
We can’t wait to return!

The food was very good and not too expensive. Where the Capital Grill really shines is the service. Ken, our waiter, took his time to explain the menu items to us an all of the various specials for Restaurant week, their special wine offerings. I was very helpful with recommendations and describing the items so we knew exactly what we were getting. Ken was very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine options. If you want a special night the Capital Grill is the place; and ask for Ken!

Nice evening!
We met a dear friend from the county here as we thought the valet would make things easy. We walked as we live in Fed Hill. It was restaurant week and 2 of us got that and one of us got the tuna off the regular menu. The service was attentive and we loved sitting outside on this summer night. We all enjoyed our food!

Maybe it was because it was restaurant week but I was definitely disappointed with the food. There were no complaints at the table about the first course, the chowder and salad were lovely. The mains were not. My chicken was rubbery and lacked any flavor. The two at my table that ordered steak enjoyed the meat but got a plate with a steak and two wilted pieces of arugula. It was really sad looking. The dessert was good. One thing I can say was that the service was excellent. Our waitress was amazing and the rest of the wait staff was attentive and professional. Maybe it's just a poor choice at restaurant week.

What can we say – The Capital Grille and Mark W, our server, never disappoint us. Thank you so much for participating in Restaurant Week. Being the first night of Restaurant Week, the restaurant was hopping and was very noisy. It did quiet down after several parties of cackling people left. My husband always looks forward to The Generous Pour – 7 glasses of wine for $28.00. He had 2 whites, a rosé, and 4 reds to enjoy; and, he did! We started with two wedge salads and a field green salad - both very large and fresh; then, on to the stars of the meal: the beef. We each had the New York Strip. Our friend and I got the small one and my husband got the large one with a Kona rub. They were all perfectly seasoned and cooked. The beef melted in our mouths – just scrumptious. To finish, we had two flourless espresso cakes and a crème brûlée… sweet endings to delicious meals.

We had a great time and a great experience! Our waiter Kenneth Koehler went above and beyond our expectations and was able to match us with the right soups, drinks, desserts and excellent meals! We have been to the Capital Grille in other cities and while the service was great in those locations, Ken took it to the next level and we want to make sure that he is recognized for this.

Thank you Ken Koehler and a the Capital Grille, Baltimore for an amazing dining experience!
