Great service and food from Valet to Coat Check – It was my 42nd birthday and because this place was so highly recommended by a friend who visited a week ago, I ask my boyfriend to take me there. I wanted a different experience, and I got just that at Capital Grille. The Food was awesome and the service was just as good. I have been to numerous restaurants throughout the Buckhead corridor, and never have experienced such an excellent combination of service and great food. I strongly recommend anyone who is looking for a good evening at an upscale restaurant with a classy staff choose Capital Grille. This is the place to be.
HIgh expectations, very poor service – When you go to a place with a price tag like this, you have quite high expectations. Capital Grille failed very highly in the service area. Not only were our reservations requests ignored, they placed us next to the waiters' drink station, so I was constantly bumped all evening and nearly had a tray of food dumped down my friend's back.
The waiter took about 10 minutes at the start to tell us everything on the menu as if we were unable to read.
The food runners were not polite and arrogantly deliverd the food after asking, "who had the salmon?"... I have gone to chain restaurants that know where the orders go. I had to beg for refills on our drinks.
I was extremely disappointed and the food was good, but for that price, your high expectations will not be met. There are MUCH BETTER restaurants in Atlanta.
Great Food & Service – It's not much to say but this is my favorite restaurant and the food is outstanding. The crab cakes are to die for!! If you are looking for a place that is going to give you great service and excellent food this is the place. My brother did his engagement here also and they really made it nice for him. Thanks for all the great dinning nights I have had there.
Stunning city views set this by-the-book steakhouse apart from the Buckhead pack. – The Scene
Georgia's outpost of this national chain has all the trimmings of a prototypical gentleman's club: a digital ticker tape flashing stock quotes in the bar, dark wood paneling, and deer heads mounted throughout the dining room. Windows offer a stunning--and rare--view of downtown Atlanta. Service is professional and unobtrusive.
The menu features by-the-book steakhouse presentations, which translates to pampered cuts of meat, mediocre starters and comfort food side dishes. The dry-aged steaks, including Delmonico, sirloin and a New York strip with Cognac-cream sauce, are each juicy and deeply flavorful. Seafood choices are uninspired, though monster-sized lobsters make an admirable alternative to beef. Rich mashed potatoes and nutmeg-tinged creamed spinach are standout accompaniments. For those diners who've managed to save room, key lime pie is a refreshing dessert.
Very good food, Great ambiance – I have been a couple of times and have had a great experience everytime. The service was very good and greeted you like they are supposed too at a fine dining restaurant. The menu includes many varieties to choose from.
Steak – Hello,
I think this place is great, but not fantastic. The food is excellent. The view from the bar and dining area is excellent. The staff is not so excellent. Most people that go to this restaurant are probably attending for a paticular occasion. For that reason alone, the staff should treat you accordingly. Unfortunately I did not get that warm feeling you should get from an important evening out. Now, let me say that know person was particularly rude. Although it was seriously lacking that southern hospitality that you get from many of the fine restaurants in Atlanta...
Beautiful Food, Beautiful View – This was my first visit to this restaurant to celebrate a promotion and I have to say that I was completely satified by alll aspects of this establishment. I was fortunate enough to get a table that overlooked the beautiful Atlanta sklyline at night. The filet mingnot was delicious...tender, juicy, oh man my mouth is watering thinking about it. The service was great, the server was very knowledgeable of all specials and was very attentive while giving us the privacy that would be expected at a this type of restaurant. Romantic setting for a date if you think she is worth the high bill. I had such a great time that the bill didn't matter but be prepared.
Terriffic entrees, service, and best fries I've ever had – The decor seems to be an intentional cliche -- dark wood paneling, moose and deer heads, bad painted portraits of rich people. But there's a nice view of the city, and you're not there for the decor anyway. My first visit was last night. The service was terrific -- attentive but unobtrusive. Patrons are treated very well. My wife and a friend wanted to share an order of lobster and a steak and were going to divide it up after it was served. The waiter said the kitchen could divide it for them and cook the meat as each preferred. They said the lobster was very good, though I didn't try it myself. They recommend it with the hollandaise that accompanies the asparagus. The steak they got was the same as mine - the Delmonico with a porcini and balsamic rub. As served, it seemed laughably enormous, but not as I dug in. It was fabulous. But the winner of the night was the fries. Yes, the fries. With grated parmesan and white truffle oil. The texture was exquisite. Amazing. With a recommended Oregon Syrah, all was right. The bill was through the roof, but we were celebrating a birthday, and at least we didn't pay that much while being unsatisfied with the meal.
Best and only Stoli Doli and consistant!!! Good food and great service! – First off, you must start off with the Stoli Doli. Tasty little drink!!! :) All of the entree's and appetizers I have had are good, can't complain. Great date place! Great wine list, great food, and excellent service.
Amazing – The food was to die for! The steak were perfect as were the side items. Great cocktails and very good wine list. Excellent service.
