Visited the Capital Grille for lunch. Our food was amazing! Our server, Ashley, made our lunch even better, providing great service. We considered ordering dessert, but were just too full, so she surprised us with a to-go box with a sample of two of our favorite Capital Grille desserts for our drive to South Bend. Yesterday, I received a note from Ashley thanking us for dining with them and hoping that we had a safe trip. This place knows their customer service.

I just went here for lunch with an old student of mine who now works a few blocks away. The food was great! We started with the calamari appetizer - very good and perfectly done, tender, tasty, and not the least bit chewy. I had a salmon salad for my entree, which consisted of a lovely mixed green and mango salad (pressed into a cylindrical form, aside a large piece of delicious salmon.

Although the food was delicious, the atmosphere and service seemed very formal and stiff (a bit too much for my taste). The service was prompt and very attentive, but just didn't have that warm and welcoming feeling. There was nothing wrong, they seemed to cater to your every need, but it just had that sense of "we're here to serve you" that nearly bordered on being obsequious. I am more the person that likes going to a restaurant where you feel like you are being welcomed to their home. This was more like a truly classic business restaurant where they are there to make sure every need is taken care of, but otherwise will be in the background.

In short - great food, and service that met every need, but I would have liked a place a little less "business" and a bit more friendly. While a little on the expensive side, it had a beautifully classic decor, an excellent wine list (I didn't have any though, so I can't really comment on the wines), and a perfect place for a quiet and confidential business lunch. As a place for friends to go, it just seemed a bit too stiff.

This is a wonderful place to have a romantic dinner. We would recommend this for an anniversary or engagement. Davis was an amazing waiter. He was a step above. He had the intangible qualities that distinguish a great waiter from a good one. He really made our night special. The food was amazing. I had the halibut and she had the filet. The sides are huge and can be shared. We sampled the "Generous Pour" which is a great way to try numerous types of wine, and then pick a favorite for the night that is essentially bottomless. We will definitely return.
