The Capital Grille - Milwaukee Ratings and Reviews

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.
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.
Great at everything!
This was my 2nd time eating at The Capital Grille for Downtown Dining. Both years their service has been amazing and the food is sooooo good! There are some places who don't have the best of service to people participating in Downtown Dining; however The Capital Grille is so welcoming and treats you just like they would anyone else. I highly recommend them!
Excellent service, even better food
The service and food was great. I had the Kona ages bone in New York strip and my wife had the filet. Both were done perfectly and we agree they were probably the best steaks we've ever had. We will return for more special occasions.
The Capital Grille always consistent
Despite this being a chain restaurant, I get the local vibe and the staff is largely responsible for that. The food was well prepared despite it being the prix fixe menu for the annual Milwaukee Downtown Dining event. The service was attentive without being bothersome. I will definitely return.
Angel provided great service. Table was decorated for our birthday celebration. Food was excellent. Only negative is that we stood in the bar for 10 minutes and were never even acknowledged. We went elsewhere for a cocktail before dinner. In their defense the seats at the bar were almost full but there was still room for us to be served.
Always a Pleasure to Dine There
It is always a very special dinner whenever we dine there. The staff is attentive but not over bearing. We went there for Milwaukee Downtown Dining and enjoyed our meal with friends who had never been there before. They were impressed by the delicious entrees offered for the event.
