Bone in ribeye melts in your mouth! Service was excellent, host, server, wine consiere and manager. My friends had the filet which they would not share, was very good. Of course we had mushrooms and Brussel sprouts. We will be back

Went the night of my arrival for a business trip I tried the dry aged new york strip medium rare...was amazing! Presentation and taste was awesome, I think the best steak I've ever had. Ambient is pretty formal, waiters are excellent.

We went here for our anniversary. They had a rose and decorations on the table, incredible food and wine choices, and the wait staff (Peter) was so kind and attentive! A bit pricey but well worth it. Highly recommend.

The food here is amazing and service was incredible! If you are a wine lover, they have a great selection! The lobster bisque and butternut squash bisque were delicious! There were 11 in our party and from the unique salads to the vegetarian dishes to the filets no one had a bad plate! For desserts we shared the coconut cream... More

Had a fabulous birthday dinner at the Capital Grille last weekend. Brian was our server and he never missed a beat. My husband had the porterhouse and I had the rib eye and they were both cooked to perfection. Also, enjoyed baked French onion soup, fingerling potatoes and asparagus. Bryan provided a complimentary appetizer and dessert along with some birthday... More

Even though this is a chain, the food is excellent! The last time we ate here, I told them it was our anniversary. When we got to our table, it was decorated, we got complimentary champagne and I got a single red rose. Our server called us by name, very impressive. I had a filet that was melt in your... More

The Capital Grille is a throwback to the days of big, fancy lunches. Not cheap, but the portions are large, the service is fantastic and the food is good. A nice reminder of the way business lunches used to be.

We were in Milwaukee for a wedding while also celebrating our anniversary. You know how when you make a reservation and you tell them it is a special event and you want something extra done but you know for a fact the person on the other end doesn't have a clue and is going to do nothing so you'll have...

Have visited quite a few Capital Grilles in different states and remain impressed by their consistent success in providing quality food and service. A particular favourite dish of mine is the aged rib with porcini rub - melts in the mouth. The 'summer wine event' on the menu allowed us to try as many of the seven wines as we... More
