My husband and I frequent The Capital Grille all over Maryland/DC. This was our first visit to the Baltimore location, and we were not disappointed. We had a reservation and were sat quickly in a comfortable corner location near a window.

The serving staff was friendly and attentive. The food was up to the usual that I expect from The Capital Grille - excellent, and it’s important to note that this was with a completely full restaurant. There were no empty tables, and for good reason.

The wait staff go so above and beyond. EXCELLENT service all around. Food was absolutely delicious easily one of the best steaks I’ve had in my entire life. Lobster bisque was to die for and the soy Brussels sprouts were delicious as well. Great ambiance and really has that “high class” feel. Would most certainly recommend and will definitely be returning.

Dinner with family for my sons first birthday. Food was great. Service was amazing.

It’s unfortunate they do not have a changing table in the restroom

Kind of disappointing overall. Expensive relative to the quality of the food. Side dishes and appetizers were not at all what one might expect from a premium steak house. That said, the steak quality was as expected.

Usually, I really enjoy my experience, but today, I was disappointed. The food was delicious, our server was outstanding, but I was disappointed in the ambiance. It was our 24th anniversary, which they were informed of. We were seated near the kitchen, and then they seated a couple, with to crying babies across from us. Needless to say, it kinda killed the romantic environment.

Our friend’s 50th wedding anniversary. Came from out of state to celebrate. Wonderful dinner made better by the fabulous waiter, Donnie. So warm, friendly, accommodating and professional. The appetizers were delicious- tuna tartare, Caesar salad, lump crabmeat cocktail and the superb onion soup. All our steaks were cooked perfectly. One diner had the 3 lb lobster stuffed with crabmeat special. Over the top delicious. Dessert included a mini chocolate mousse tart and a mini cheesecake. Fruit on the side- all were gobbled up quickly. Would go back every time we come to Baltimore. Everything was top notch.

Excellent dinner! Would highly recommend. Our waiter was spectacular - extremely professional and knew the menu! The food was incredible - we had a number of appetizers, main dishes and desserts. Although a little pricey, certainly worth the money.

The food and service was outstanding. Our steaks were done perfectly, and probably the best cuts of beef we ever had ... melt in your mouth tenderness. And to top things off, they actually had my favorite dessert, Creme Brulee, which was also one of the best I ever had. Everyone was extremely friendly, and made it an enjoyable evening.

The "Charm'tastic Mile" had a very informative lunch with Visit Baltimore CEO Al Hutchinson. The Capital Grille has a marvelous location on The Mile. My Ribeye-Steak Sandwich was cooked to perfection (med. rare) with garlic truffle fries. Sandy was a great server, she's been there for a long time. If you want a perfect lunch salad try the Caesar with Grilled Shrimp. I highly recommend the Capital Grille. It's "Steak'tastic" in B-more!

Visited for a Father's day for my husband and father. We were a little disappointed with the food. We noticed there were changes to the menu since our last outing prior to the pandemic. My french onion soup was good however, the chicken was so under seasoned it tasted like chicken. The waitress forgot about my soup so my food came out as I was eating finishing my soup. My mother ordered a steak which she said was good but our chicken dishes were not the best. Saddened by this because Capital Grille was one of my favorite restaurants.

We were celebrating our anniversary. Our server was friendly but I was surprised he didn’t remove the trash from the table. I was pleased the French onion soup came in a cup size. It was delicious. The usual crock size generally fills me up so that I can’t enjoy the rest of the meal. The cup size was perfect. My husbands oysters were pretty small. This is a good Oyster season so we expected much larger oysters. We usually order filet mignon when we eat here, but deviated and tried different steaks. I had the NY strip au poivre and there was a lot of peppercorns. My husband opted for the bone in rib eye with porcini rub and balsamic glaze. He thoroughly enjoyed it. The side of mushrooms for the table was delicious. We were given complimentary dessert which was a nice touch and delicious!!

The only glitch (other than not having table trash removed) came when we tried to get our valet ticket validated. The restaurant has a policy (that we didn’t know about) of adding the valet fee to the check and then providing a ticket for the valet. Unfortunately , our server didn’t ask if we used valet parking so it wasn’t added to our bill. It finally was straightened out, but could have gone more smoothly had he asked before presenting the bill.

Service- Fantastic
Food- So good!

There is valet and if you end up parking in the garage, they will validate your parking.

Probably not the best place to take kids as there is no kid's menu and the entrees are higher dollar, but my 9 year old son was so impressed with the place that he tried to use his best manners and ate most of the 10 oz steak (rare for him to eat that much).

Would go back for a date night.

Please forgive me but I believe the gentleman’s name is Carlos....if so he was AMAZING! He was a great time and knowledgeable about everything, super kind, fun, he took great care of my friends and I for my birthday, our graduation, and going away party.
