The restaurant's process for keeping packaged leftovers from your own dinner, in their frig during theatre productions, for you to acquire when returning to The Capital Grill after the show, was great. We will be back...

The Capital Grille never disappoints. Diane Forsberg (one of the managers) is always excellent and our server, Carina was great. We dine at this restaurant almost monthly and I use it for both family and entertaining business clients. I also used it for my wedding reception last year. My only constructive point is that the person running the door is usually curt. In this case, the host staff was discussing the fact that our table was still occupied by diners that were "still in the middle of their entree". This made me feel like we would miss our show and made me anxious. When I inquired because of overhearing this, the man at the door reminded me that I was 15 minutes early and was very short. I expect better from a restaurant when I am spending $175 per person. The young man with the pony tail is invariably aloof although he was not here on this particular evening. The noise level was very high in the back of the restaurant which made it hard to talk at our larger round table. Be sure to ask for a booth or the upper level to avoid this.

Slow service and we ate a late dinner, so it was by no means the dinner rush. I ordered the scallops and they were grossly overcooked. My husbands meal was good, lobster and tenderloin. I wasn't impressed at all with this visit.

We went to The Capital Grille to celebrate my husband's birthday with three other couples. The service was impeccable, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was perfect. The whole experience made me think of when my parents would dress up to go out for a special dinner with friends - I felt like we had stepped back in time - beautiful linen table cloths, a warm serene decor, the whole experience was just lovely. We had never been to The Capital Grille before and we will definitely go back - thank you to The Capital Grille you're a gift to Minneapolis!

Second time we have been there. First time was one of the Best dining experiances of our lives. This time the food was over cooked and the server was slow and busy with others. A good portion of the meal was comped but I would have preferred everything being perfect.

We visited for my boyfriend's birthday dinner and it was the best decision ever! The food was fantastic (he had the Porcini Mushroom Ribeye, I had a NY Strip, we split the mashed potatoes)! A little pricey, but worth every penny! Our waiter, Todd, was what every waiter should be; there when you need him, not interrupting, and humorous. At one point he had escorted my boyfriend in the direction of the restrooms and had found out it was his birthday and then delivered us a complementary dessert sampler before we left. I cannot say enough about the Capital Grille -Minneapolis location.

We had the best anniversary dinner. My husband and I both ordered the filet mignon and they were cooked perfectly and so tender. I had the lobster bisque soup which was so delicious. Our friend had the lamb chops and he could not stop talking about how awesome they were to eat. Our waiter brought us a complimentary dessert and it was outstanding. The cocktails were nice and strong.

As we expected it would be, the special birthday dinner for my wife was wonderful. The Capital Grille is always her first choice, and the food, atmosphere, and service was excellent. The wine list, presented on an iPad, is a great way to make a wine selection. We have never been disappointed by the Capital Grille and will continue to make it a part of our lifestyle.

Last Friday night we had a fabulous meal of salad, au Gratin potatoes, steak and lobster! The kitchen was kind enough to split each of the items for us in the kitchen. We had great wait staff, no pressure kind of service We will go back!

We were in Minneapolis for a wedding on Saturday. My husband and I went to Capital Grille for a nice dinner the evening prior to the wedding. We had traveled for 7 hours and were in need of a relaxing dinner and a cocktail to ease the stress of rush hour traffic. We arrived early the dinning room opened at 5PM, so we checked in with the hostess and went to the lounge for an adult beverage. The bartender was very friendly and professional; he made us feel right at home. We were seated and our server quickly welcomed us and advised of the specials and the menu layout. We had an appetizer, 2 side dishes and shared a sliced beef filet with onions and mushrooms. The steak was cooked to perfection and was so tender that we could slice it with a butter knife. The lobster and crab cake appetizer wth corn relish was delightful, as there was more seafood and not tons of bread or cracker crumbs. We were able to get a half oder of both of the side dishes, asparagus and lobster macaroni and cheese, which was plenty for the two of us. The server was attentive to our needs and shared with us that he had visited the city that we call home and chatted with us about various points of interest in our area. We got a desert to go, as we stuffed after eating our dinner. The flourless chocolate espresso cake was a total hit with my husband. This is a must when visiting Minneapolis. Thank you to the bartender, server and the chef for our very pleasurable dining experience!

The Cuisine is fabulous at the Capital Grille and so was the service. Tom was our waiter and he was very attentive and helpful with the menu. The portions are wonderful. Being a connoisseur of calamari, I found theirs to be very tastefully prepared. The Capital Grille offers fine dining at its finest. A must have treat!

This is such a great favorite downtown Minneapolis spot. Perfect for business meals or a date. Love the menu!
Host was so nice, I asked for a quiet spot in my open table reservation and he was so sweet to help with the perfect location! Thank you!

My wife and I went to the Capital Grille to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. It was a great choice, and we both had a great time. I honestly don't know if I've ever been treated so well by staff as I was at the Capital Grille. They took amazing care of us, and it made our anniversary feel really special. Also, the steak that we shared was incredible - we took the server's recommendation, and it was one of the best steaks we've ever had. I would highly recommend the Capital Grille to anyone for a special occasion, a romantic date night, or whenever they're able to go. We'll certainly be going back again.
