The best dining experience we have ever had!.
When I first saw the menu, I knew we had chosen the right place for our anniversary. All steak houses have steak, but The Capital Grille offered many seafood options as well, I wanted it all. We shared classics like shrimp cocktail, clam chowder, and ceasar salad for our appetizers. My wife chose the live Maine lobster, and I had decided to get a steak before we ever made the reservation. There were so many steaks to choose from but I decided on the specialty of the house, the dry aged porterhouse. There were many other selections that I also wanted to try, so when our server explained that I could basically create my own steak, I mixed and matched some of the suggestions on the menu and had my porterhouse with the porcini mushroom rub and the sauteed wild mushrooms and cippolini onions. The most tender and flavorful steak I have ever put in my mouth. The essence of fig and balsamico were perfect compliments to the steak. My wife's lobster was exceptional. We also shared the best creamed spinach I've ever had and the au gratin potates were amazing. The service was impecible. Not only was our server knowledgeable about the menu, which showed during the explanation of the daily specials and the specialties, but she also anticipated our needs. She was truly happy to be waiting on us.
It was the little things that Stephanie did for us on this occasion that made our anniversary dinner unforgettable. Candles and rose petals were on the table when we were seated, she offered us a glass of champagne to start the evening, suggested perfect wines to compliment our entrees, then brought a flourless chocolate espresso cake for dessert. I love watching the flow of a busy restaurant, and the staff at The Capital Grille didn't miss a beat. Friendly, courteous, attentive but unobtrusive, precise, clean, and organized. Everyone seemed to enjoy making this the best dinner we have ever had. We will definately be returning.
Hot Steaks, Hot Bar, Hot Staff, Hot Restaurant. I recently had my first visit to the Capital Grille. Let me tell you, I regret that after living in Atlanta for 36 years, I had not visited this awesome steakhouse. The bar is full of Buckhead's more attractive set. Everyone drinks the signature house drink, a Stoli Doli, which is a pineapple infused vodka martini. I happend to walk right in on the weekly Wednesday night wine down special. The cocktail waitresses were offering free appatizers and glasses of very fine wine for an incredibly low price. The food we tasted in the bar was so good, my guest and I just had to have a full meal. Whats cool about this place is that they offer the traditional steakhouse fare as well as interesting variations like spice rubs, sauces, etc. Give this place a try, you won't be sorry
The Capital Grille Does It Right.
The Capital Grille in Atlanta not only has a great view, but the food and service are superior. Great place to power-lunch and terrific place to take clients and guests.
The service is outstanding and these folks, particularly at dinner, pay great attention to detail.
The Delmonico is one of the best steaks you'll ever have, especially for the price. Great meal! I like the asparagus. If you like calamari....this is the best. Period. There's none better. I've had calamari many different ways around the world and this is great. Some Capital Grilles will fluxuate with regards to the quality of preparation of the calamari, but Atlanta has it down.
You Pay for the View.
Capital Grille has only one thing going for it An Incredible View. Save your money though and just go for drinks at sunset.
Steaks are basically what you would expect at chain restaurant for twice the price. My bone-in Delmonico tasted like the grill it was cooked on. Lyonaise potatoes were hard and chewy. White chocolate mousse tasted like whip cream. Our table of 4 had 4 cocktails, one bottle of wine, and we had 3 courses Total bill $445. Yikes. We couldve gone to a much better restaurant for that money.
Atmosphere is basically cigar room with animal heads on the wall.
Best Calamari Ever!. I love calamar and seek it out at every restaurant I go to. I can say, without a doubt that Capital Grill has the BEST calamari I have ever had. I have not had the steaks yet so I cant rate them, but WOW, the calamari!!
isn't ya ordinary chain restaurant. capital grille is a top of the line restaurant and competes with the best easily. the buckhead location is on the 8th fl. of the capital building overlooking the city of atlanta. from martinis to the side dishes, this restaurant suceeds in every area. the garlic mashed potatoes are so delicious that one night i dragged my girlfriend i here just so i could get some. come to find out i wasn't the only one that night to do this. the steaks and the calamari are excellent as well.
Above the rest!. I was invited to the Capital Grill for a business dinner. The atmosphere was great. Dark colors and lots of windows. Suits and dresses. I enjoyed the spicy calamari for an appetiser and swordfish for entree. The drinks were as ordered, so they meet my expectations. The service was terrific and friendly.
Amazing!. The Capital Grille is a wonderful place to dine! It has a beautiful view, it's sexy and just a wonderful atmosphere. My family and I took my parents there for their 30th wedding anniversary and they absoulutely loved it. My mother is still talking about it! I recommend this place for everyone!
Terrific!. This is the best steak house in Atlanta. The service and food were great!
One of the Countrys BEST steakhouse. This is a destination steakhouse where the food is 2nd only to the service. Few fine restaurants can compare to the Capital Grille. The wine list is extensive and the dry aged steaks are remarkable.
