The Capital Grille - Minneapolis Ratings and Reviews
One of the best restaurants in the Twin ...
One of the best restaurants in the Twin Cities. While this is a small chain it does not feel that way at all. Incredible attention from the time you walk in until you leave. The staff and management should all be commended on how they treat their clients. Very special place. Food is wonderful. They have a terrific hamburger--it's not on the menu! So don't tell them I told you.
Steaks and fish and seafood are just tops. You cannot go wrong here.

Food and service excellent. Help for disabled person with walker lacking. Stood leaning on walker for 10 minutes while waiting for car. THERE IS NO RAMP INSIDE restaurant to reach some seating. Manager and reception desk needs to be more responsive to needs of disabled

I've been to CG many times, and my overall experience has been very positive. Great food, great service, good vibe to the restaurant - honestly everything you should expect of a high-end steakhouse.
On this visit (9/4/16), upon being seated, our waiter came to the table immediately and said "We noticed you haven't been here since November of 2014 and that night you had a bad experience with a server not being as attentive as he should have been. We want to apologize for that, so tonight your appetizers are comped." What? Wow.
My wife reminded me of that visit (it hand't been our most recent, but apparently only our most recent OpenTable reservation) and I did remember the scenario that wasn't really terrible service - just not what you'd expect at CG.
Regardless, the food and service on this most recent visit were absolutely fantastic. The server didn't need to comp the appetizers (or the unexpected dessert) but their attention to detail and commitment to customer service 2 years after a hiccup was impressive. That's the type of thing I think sets a place like this apart and help them create loyal customers for life. We were truly impressed.

Attended The Generous Pour. Nice selections of special white and red appellations with no tasting constraints - well worth the price, though sappointed the Stags Leap Cab offering was depleted. However, dinner was stellar and surpassed expectations. Both steaks (21-day with peppercorn courvesier sauce, and 45- day Dry-aged NY Strips with Kona Koffee rub) were perfectly cooked to order, tender and flavorful. Lobster crab cake appetizer was superbly prepared and delicious. Sides of potato au graten and (requested) sautéed spinach pleased. Bjorn (server) and bus assistant, Angel, provided welcoming and responsive service. Thoroughly enjoyed dinner and the special event.

This was our second time visiting Capital Grille for our anniversary and again they did an outstanding job. We had heart confetti waiting on our table and were offered a complimentary champagne toast after being seated. While service overall was a little slow, the food was perfection and when our server did come see us, she was very knowledgeable and thoughtful. We also received a fantastic complimentary dessert with a Happy Anniversary message written on the plate. This is becoming our favorite special occasion tradition! Thank you, Capital Grille!

Excellent as always. Great food, great service and still our favorite splurge restaurant. This was our second visit this summer for the annual Generous Wine Pour event, which no wine fan should miss. $28 for unlimited and good wine...actually a value. Mark your calendar for next summer!

We asked about an appetizer that we had eaten when we visited Capital Grille before. The chef graciously made it for us even though it wasn't on the menu. That is great service and it tasted as great as we remembered. We will return!

I cannot even put into words how much I recommend the capital grille. The food and service were absolutely outstanding. On top of that they did everything and then some to make our engagement celebration dinner memorable. I did not do them a favor by making a reservation less than 24 hours in advance but they came through in major ways. Thank you Capital Grille!

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😊
