Enjoyed a very good rib-eye steak during a business meeting at the Capital Grill in Baltimore. Service was attentive, all the food was well prepared and served nicely. Wine list was eclectic. Looking forward to enjoying another meal at a Capital Grill in other cities I will visit in the future.

While in town on a short business trip The Capital Grille was conveniently within walking distance of our hotel facing the inner harbor. The steak was absolute perfection. I ordered a bone in filet special and it was cooked, a perfectly tender, medium rare plus. The sides were generously portioned and very tasty. Cocktails were attentively served and an on... More

I had lunch with 2 other friends. On the recommendation of the waitress, two of us went for the seared salmon over a bed of green beans. It was deeeeelicious, every bite just melting into our mouth. 😜 The other had a steak and was really happy with it. Recommended to all !

We ate here for our valentine's day dinner (a day late). From the drinks at the bar before dinner to the meal everything was great. My girlfriend had about the best tuna steak I have ever tasted. The service was excellent and the waiter helped us choose a great wine also. To top it off they gave us some chocolate... More

After complimentary valet parking, I recommend starting with the Stoly Doly, their signature cocktail. Follow that with exceptional crab cakes which are a combination of lump crab and lobster or get fantastic fried calamari with peppers. Steaks are great but don't hesitate to order the seafood such as tuna or sea bass. The sides are all mouth watering. There is... More

One of the best restaurants in Baltimore. The manager, Jimmy, is terrific, and has the place running as a well-oiled machine. One of the few restaurants that knows how to cook meat as ordered by the patron. Wait staff also is terrific.

The Capital Grille is located across the street from the Baltimore Aquarium. What a perfect place to enjoy an elegant lunch. The atmosphere is lovely, with white tablecloths and a "club" kind of decor. The service was impeccable. The lunch menu had some nice options. I ordered a salmon salad, and my son ordered a chicken ceasar salad. We both... More

I can always count on a wonderful meal when dining at the Capital Grille. Big delicious salads followed by steaks second to none. Perfectly prepared medium rare and melt in your mouth tender beef. Service is always on the excellent side with everything done smoothly and seemlessly and unobtrusively. Hard to beat this restaurant all around.

We took some friends during Restaurant Week. We'd been here before and it had been great. So I was really looking forward to a classic steak dinner. But even my lofty expectations were exceeded. I always value service over food quality. And both were top-notch, but the service was best-in-class. I appreciate the well-dressed staff, and the way they handle... More

Your ship has come in. The Capital Grille in Baltimore is located right in the Inner Harbor. A location every bit as special and impressive as our restaurant is. Come and experience everything from our famous dry aged steaks and chops to exceptional seafood. An award-winning selection of 400 wines. And an atmosphere of comfortable elegance. Any excuse to not try it, simply won't hold water.
