Love the atmosphere in this place! Quiet and romantic, ambient lighting and wonderful service. Don’t miss the Stoli Doli martini (go take a look at it in the bar). Food is delicious! There are other locations but this one is the best.

Again shows why the Capital grille chain is actually worth the price. Fantastic seafood starter and perfect steak as a main, courteous waiter (from Armenia) with an excellent wine choice for the food.
