I have dined at a lot of Capital Grilles across the country and this one meets expectations. I think there are others where I have enjoyed the food a LITTLE bit more, but I DID really enjoy the lobster bisque.

I went this restaurant with a group of friends and we really enjoyed it. The food is really good and the service as well. The food is a little pricey, however, every once in a while is a nice place to go. Totally recommend it!

Hi. There is no dress code, specially if you are there for lunch. But people are dressed nicer for dinner and the restaurant has very nice and upscale decor.
