The Capital Grille - Milwaukee Ratings and Reviews

As always, outstanding food and great service. We had reservation for 7pm on Saturday and were seated by 710. The bar atmosphere is great, valet parking a real plus. We have dined here probably 10 times and almost without exception the food and service have been top-shelf.

From the service from our server, Adam to the manager, Louis taking us on a tour of the kitchen - to the incredible steaks, we had a great time. They had a rose and a Happy Anniversary card on the table when we arrived. Then when they brought our dessert that we had ordered, they also brought plate with another complimentary dessert with the words, "Happy Anniversary" spelled out in chocolate on the plate. We highly recommend The Capital Grille!

My husband and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary this past weekend and it was completely amazing. Capitol Grille took a photo of us, provides champagne, and decorated the table with roses. I was pleasantly surprised. This will be the only place we celebrate our future anniversaries. Can't wait for year number 3.

This is mine and my wife's favorite restaurant. We go every year for our anniversary. The steak is awesome. The lobster mac n cheese is to die for. This restaurant goes out of their way for our anniversary every year.

The staff took our mediocre night, to an AMAZING night. One that will not be forgotten. We went there to celebrate my wife's birthday, had such an delicious meal that we are trying to find a Capital Grille be us.
If we are ever back in Milwaukee again, here's where I would make reservations for and recommend undoubtedly.

Celebrating my birthday at the Capital Grille every year is a treat I wait for all year long. The staff goes out of its way to make my birthday lunch very special. They never disappoint. Can't wait for next July 23rd. lol

Was for our 25th anniversary. Awesome servers. Very nice touch with the rose and letter on the table for our anniversary. Complimentary desert and champagne as well. Food was to die for. I definitely had a food coma moment after dinner. If you want a top notch experience then this is the place, hands down

We had an excellent meal recently at Captial Grille. Our server was very knowledgeable & very friendly. The food was wonderful, but because of everything separate it gets expensive. A very nice time for a special occasion. Thank you for having us!

I used Open Table to make my reservation, I was able to let the restaurant know we were celebrating my daughter's 21st birthday, the entire staff was very accommodating from the moment we entered the restaurant. The table was decorated beyond my expectations and our waitress was most helpful in deciding on what wines to try. The happy birthday dessert was very tasty. I will return for dinner and other special events in the near future. Thank you for a most wonderful memory shared by me and my daughter.

We have always loved The Capital Grille, in Milwaukee and multiple locations. Our service this time was below par. It was also interesting that although we celebrated a birthday, only confetti was on the table. Maybe things have changed...we used to always receive a dessert, a card (card not expected as we let the restaurant know late that it was a birthday)...but it was a bit disappointing but the caliber of restaurant and our previous experiences.

The Capital Grill always serves up a superb meal. It is an outstanding, classic steak house that is perfect for business and large groups. A great place to impress a client. I have at times treated myself to a great steak at the bar as well.

I am from Maryland.
So many restaurants CLAIM to have a Maryland style crab cake. Capital Grille has a COMBINATION crab and lobster cake that is closer to any actual Maryland style crab cake I have found yet. This opinion includes both Chicago and Milwaukee markets.

Our server, Brian, was knowledgeable and provided outstanding service and wonderful recommendations. The food and specialty drinks were incredible, too. I will definitely revisit when I'm back in Milwaukee for business or pleasure.

From the moment we walked into the restaurant we knew this would be special. Our Grey Goose martinis, dirty with blue cheese stuffed olives, were wonderful. We ordered the seafood tower and it was outstanding. They even removed the lobster from the shell so we didn't need to fight to get it out. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and the wine list allowed me to choose a pinot that was outstanding and wonderful with our meal. The sides were great. The brussel sprouts were outstanding.
This was truly an amazing experience!!!
If you are looking for fine dining, ambience along with excellent food, Capital Grille is "The Place". We have never been disappointed in the food, wine, service or ambience of this great place. Their steaks will never disappoint and their special rubs are excellent, along with all their sides and desserts to top off a wonderful eating experience.
Restaurant week not their best
We had lunch during restaurant week in Milwaukee. As always the service was impeccable. The food is usually the same, but this time lacked something. I had the sirloin hash which is similar to a stew my wife and guest had salmon. They were both on the bland side. I this expect that from Capitol Grill. I will say this is due to the chef making mass quantities of food for restaurant week. We dine here on special occassions throughout the year so we will be back, but will not go for restaurant week again.

The atmosphere was warm and upscale at the same time with classic steakhouse decor. Service was impeccable and every course of food was cooked to perfection. We even got black napkins in place of white for our clothing. I find that to be a lovely touch and sign of attention to detail. A+.
Downtown Dining treat
Great bargain at a very pricey place. Good food and worth the time to check out the restaurant.
It was very busy due to the specials. Our hard rolls were harder and not as warm as I thought, so I asked for replacements. The waitress seemed a bit taken back by my request but complied informing me that that was the nature of a hard roll. True, but, I may have lost a tooth on those.
Other than that and some feelings of being rushed, it was pleasant. The specials may have caused the less than relaxed atmosphere.

Very good beef hash, clam chowder, and terimasu. Salad was fresh but ordinary, salmon was good but didn't stand out. Loved the bread basket. Server was attentive and professional although a little on the serious not cheerful side. We had a very nice time.
We went to the restaurant to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary after going there for our 25th anniversary. I don't think we will be waiting until our 35th wedding anniversary to visit it again--we will go more often. The food was fantastic and the service was great. We did have to wait a little time for our table because the party before us stayed and visited at the table for longer than expected, but the manager apologized (many times) and bought us a round of drinks for waiting. It was totally not necessary, but a very nice gesture. I will recommend this restaurant to all of my family and friends and can't wait to go back.
