Was my first time there. Great experience! However, next time I think I should order my Filet Mignon medium vs medium/well it was too dry for me. Overall, everything else was really good - I would recommend this place to others.

The Capital Grille once again does not disappoint. We had a fantastic dinner there with attentive service and amazing food. The lobster mac and cheese and the Filet Oscar are so delicious and we finished our meals with the best Creme Brulee EVER!

Truly enjoyed our lunch at The Capital Grille during Restaurant Week. First time there, and celebrated a birthday with a friend. We both left impressed and ready to come back. The Creme Brulee was especially wonderful.

The food and service were excellent! Our table was in the center of other tables, so it was relatively loud and there was a lot of traffic around our table. While the food and service were good, it's not unique steakhouse fare. With other good steakhouses downtown, I would not recommend the Capital Grille as something special or a must visit.

This is the 5th year that we have dined at Capital Grille in celebration of my daughter's birthday and, as always, it was an excellent experience in all regards. The service was fantastic, the food delicious and the ambiance perfect for our special occasion. Our waiter even provided us with a special birthday dessert to the delight of our daughter! We will be back again next year to enjoy the Capital Grille "experience"!

We went to celebrate a birthday. The table was decorated with Birthday confetti and we were offered a complimentary glass of champagne. The service was outstanding and continued to be throughout the evening. I had the Filet and my son had the porterhouse. They were cooked as ordered and were delicious. We shared some sides and even though we ordered 1/2 portions, we still took them home. The creamed spinach and the Brussel sprouts were very good. We will definitely return! Great food, great experience, great evening.

We went to celebrate my husband's birthday, and from the moment we arrived we received very wonderful personalized treatment - from birthday greetings, to a tastefully decorated table, to our delicious meals and finally the out of this world special birthday plate/desserts. We will definitely be going back here to celebrate in the future. Food was amazing and service was top-notch!

Paper napkins and heavy silverware was just the first clue that I chose the right spot for our business lunch. I would definitely love to come back for an evening dinner date with my boyfriend as the atmosphere was magical and the food was mouthwatering. I had their Captil Grille cheeseburger medium rare and the meat was perfectly grilled warm pink/red. It was so damn good! The truffle fries were even better than Crave as they served it in a metal silver holder that kept them warm that it was still piping hot to my colleagues after I decided to share with them some fries after 15 minutes into our eating time. Amazing!
The staff was so polite and caring making recommendations and giving us a few laughs.

I recently celebrated an anniversary at Capital Grille. The staff was friendly and went beyond anything I could have imagined to celebrate our special day. They decorated our table and had a special anniversary dessert created for us! The lobster bisque was amazing!

The Grille Never Disappoints. Enjoyed a Sazarac cocktail with my son and wife for his 21st birthday last week. As always, the food was excellent and impeccably-paced by our waiter of he evening, David. The additional serving staff, especially Segundro, kept us watered and breaded without rushing to clear or leaving us stuck with dishes longer than we would have liked. That is an art mastered by the Grille's staff, and every bit as important to the fine dining experience, as the foods taste or temperature. You're not just paying a premium for a hunk of meat and a side dish, but for a symphony of food and service. We could not have been more pleased with the performance. Thank you, Grille!

Capital Grille continues to be my favorite restaurant in Minneapolis. While there are a few other very good steakhouses, none of them have the consistent execution that Capital Grille does. The servers are the best in the business and the bartenders are fantastic as well. I am always excited when I have a reservation at Capital Grille.

Dylan was truly impeccable with his service, style, knowledge and smile! The food was exquisite and the staff accommodating in that my work colleague arrived late from MSP Airport and we were one of only 2 tables dining on a late Sunday evening. We never felt rushed, more like we were special guests.
Thank you for a lovely evening!

I flew in from Los Angeles to take a friend (and her husband) to dinner. It was a congratulatory event as she had just transferred to Minneapolis to take a senior management role with a large company there. While the food and service were both very good, the noise level was unbelievable. I have NEVER eaten in a restaurant where we struggled so much to have a civil conversation. My guests commented on it as well and it was embarrassing. They really need to determine a way (they do exist!) to eliminate/reduce the noise levels. Sorry, I would never return. Regrettably, I would not recommend this restaurant either. We shouldn't pay over $400 for the three of us to scream at each other to be heard. It was just NOT a relaxing dinner. The #1 rating on Trip Advisor just can't be correct. There HAS TO BE other restaurants in Minneapolis/St. Paul with comparable food and service that permits a normal conversation.

Went before show. Wait staff very cognizant of that with great service. Filer of beef excellent as were Sam's mashed and date's salmon. Easy walk to Orpheum and free valet (they even keep your meal leftovers for you to retrieve after show when get car!). Recommend.
