The food at the Capital Grille, as always in our experience, was well prepared and delicious with prompt and efficient service. We entertained old business colleagues from years ago and had a wonderful lunch.

Service was poor at best. We had 7:00 reservations and left after 9:30PM. Diners at several other tables got there after us and were finished at least 1/2 hour before us.
Talked to the manager and he apologized. Not a fun evening when server takes 20 minutes to recognize that you are seated and continually disappears to order drinks, food or pay the check. The Capital Grille with the menu prices as they are should do a much better job. No managers walking around to supervise. I would expect better supervision of the staff.

Consistently terrific food—oysters on the half shell, ribeye, lobster salad, a great glass of Sancerre. Consistently great service—thank you Aaron!! All in a very attractive, very comfortable, quiet dining room. Great on COVID protocols, too.

The food was terrible. My shrimp cocktail contained dirty poorly deveined shrimp that was inedible and disgusting. One of the folet mignon's order medium well was overcooked. The asparagus was absent of any flavor and tasted only of char. The server referred to me as love and honey all night, overly comfortable. It was a special birthday dinner for my niece, and they failed to deliver. Definitely will stick to Ruth's Chris moving forward.

Good experience given the pandemic’s effects of staff shortages. This was our best service in the past 3 visits when service was really slow and not the standard. Only minor glitch this visit was our leftover food wasn’t given to us and we didn’t realize it until we left.

Absolutely amazing experience!
Me and the misses were celebrating our Anniversary!
Leo was our server and he was 1000000% on point! (You should request him at the Chevy Chase location)
He took photos for us and had deep knowledge of the menu, and really made us feel at home.
Our drinks were amazing, the seafood appetizer was spectacular!
I can’t complain, this is how a night out on the town is supposed to be. I’ll definitely be back. This will be the go to special occasion spot for us.

Server was a little disengaged. Drinks took an eternity to arrive. One was incorrect. Wine choice was not available.

When asked how a dish was presented - it was restated exactly as detailed in the menu. Little personal engagement or charecter.

Food was ok - not enough seasoning on the steak and little to no grill marks - felt like it was baked rather than seared.

We sat outside on the terrace. Sadly they haven’t bothered to having much lighting outside (in spite of the fact it could be installed for $100) so you are eating in the dark where you really can’t see the food. Also are we’re at a table for 2 but it is really too small so we were maneuvering stuff all evening. These issues are easily avoided if they took seriously that people dine outside.
The food was fine. We had a seafood grande plateau which is really reasonably priced considering the volume and quality.
