Allen Wichter the managing partner runs an unbelievable restaurant
Tony Langworthy is the absolute best waiter we have ever had at any restaurant we have eaten at all around the world.

Utterly superb! Started with the soup special - lobster bisque - had huge clumps of lobster. Paired that with the bone in rib eye with the porcine rub and the balsamic glaze. For me, it's the best steak ever! Service was impeccable and friendly, which was a delight because I was dining alone. If it had not been culinary perfection I could complain about the prices, which are high, but how can you argue with such a splendid meal?

If I'm ever celebrating a special event, I always choose Capital Grille. The food is always outstanding and the service is superb. The waitstaff and chef went out of their way to make my cousin feel special on her birthday.

What a wonderful restaurant! Three couples dined there for 2 birthday celebrations. Starting off with a wonderful server, the birthday ladies each received a red rose. After a fabulous meal (everyone loved their choices of different varieties of steaks) we were also given a complimentary dessert of crème brulee cheesecake and chocolate torte. The whole experience was fabulous! I highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion!

I made a reservation for my parents 49th wedding anniversary. They knew they were going to have a great meal, but I called ahead and talked to the front of the house staff and made arrangements for a few extra surprises. By all accounts the dinner was spectacular and the staff more than exceeded my expectations for making the evening one my parents would not forget. Thank you Capital Grill!

Celebrated our wedding anniversary. From the greeting of Joe the manager, to the impeccable service and great food, you really felt appreciated and not just a number at the base of a hotel tower. The Capital Grille is the choice!

Excellent food and service. I highly recommend the lobster seafood bouillabaisse. The flavor was great and it had lots of big pieces of seafood and lobster. Service was superb as usual. Shoutout to our server Dave; he's amazing😊

We had a party of 10 and this was a special occasion. 4 of the couples had never been to the "Generous Pour" event and were looking forward to it. The food was fantastic. The service however was lacking. We were all disappointed with the following: When drinks were ordered, one person did not want to do the wine event and ordered a martini. Everyone was served the generous pour first set of wines but he had to ask several times for his martini. Next, when the main courses were presented (and they were all steaks), the server was extremely slow to pour any of the red wines...and then only poured 2 at first. I was about to get up and contact the server to complain when, halfway through the meal, we finally got the final red wines. Lastly, the server, on her own, decided when to "cut people off"! My wife and I who suggested we go to Capital Grill for the event were completely embarrassed! Our friends were anything but "drunk". We had been at the restaurant for over 3 hours and as adults, we all had arranged for someone else to drive! None of us was about to drive home! One of the guests noted that the server quipped that she stopped serving since the checks were paid..... however, none of had yet to be presented with the bills! In fact one couple had just ordered dessert. We expected better service than this for a group that spent about $1500 with tips. I do not recall the name of the server but it was a woman and I suspect the restaurant can figure out who handled a 10 person party on the night in question. I think that person should have a discussion with the manager. We look forward to this event all year and this year we were sadly disappointed in the service and more importantly, embarrassed with the way our friends were treated.

We go to the Capital Grille every year for our anniversary (17 years) because we went there on our honeymoon and they treat us like old friends everytime. We go other times throughout the year & are always extremely pleased with the ambience, food, service, everything! This place is tops in the Twin Cities area! The Generous Pour is fabulous also!

Everything about our experience was to notch. We were seated right away. Wait staff was right there to help us. Our server Amayrani was super. She had suggestions for every question we had. What can I say other than everything was super. Thank you Capital Grill and staff.

As always, our experience at Capital Grille was exceptional. The manager, Allen, made us feel so welcome and Dave, our server was outstanding. The food is always of highest quality and never disappoints. A wonderful time was had by all😊

Dinner at the Capital Grille was very much in line with what you would come to expect from such an establishment. While expensive enough to somewhat question the value from a price/performance perspective, our table had quite a great experience on a special occasion. The "Generous Pour" wine event was active while we were here and many of us took advantage of the great wine flight offered. In addition, many of the specials (namely the 16oz bone-in fillet mignon) really impressed - as many of us felt it bested what Manny's/Murray's/and others have to offer. Overall, great experience, great staff, awesome food.

The Capital Grille is top notch for steak, seafood, and service. Our waiter, Dave, was friendly and funny and not stuffy or formal which sometimes happens at high end steak places. The sides were all delicious, we tried brussel sprouts, mushrooms and lobster mac n cheese. Desserts were equally tasty and large enough to share. It is very expensive but for a special occasion, it's a dependable choice for celebrating.

With a group of 12 coming in for a birthday celebration, everything was set up and we felt like we received special treatment the whole night from the staff. The table was roomy enough, service timing was perfect, food was amazing and the staff was friendly & accommodating.

Wonderful experience. I had the porcini rubbed tenderloin and my wife had the filet. Mine was good but my wife's filet was exquisite. I would also highly recommend the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella. The Service is always amazing!!!

Our server Michael did a terrific job for us. We have a special needs son and he was able to present the salad to him the way he wanted. The food was very good and service was timely.
My wife had to head back to work and was able to bring dessert (plus) to go. Thanks!

To me, Capital Grille is the best steakhouse in Minneapolis. Everything from the moment you walk in and until you leave is top notch. This was a Restaurant Week visit, and that is the best deal in town. The offerings are perfect and delicious. At the same time, Capital Grille offers "A Generous Pour" which allows you to sample various wines to accompany your meal. Our server Chris had incredible knowledge of the wines and his suggestions were right on.

We were there for "Restaurant Week", plus it was our 63rd Anniversary. Our very good friends, Tom and Karen joined us, and all our meals and service were outstanding.
The menu choices for "Restaurant Week" were extremely attractive as well.
I thought it was the best "Restaurant" meal that I've had in a long time.
