Awesome Baby Awesome - March Madness – Offering free valet parking, coat check, and a booth with comfortable leather was a great start. We ordered bone-in kona crusted ribeye and kona crusted filet mignon which arrived medium and was delicious and perfect. Ordering French Onion soup with 3 cheese and the Capitol Grille salad with house made croutons and olive vinaigrette dressing was an excellent choice. Mac and cheese with lobster was unique and tasty as was the creamed spinach. Our waiter Spirit was so knowledgeable and attentive. He mentioned some of the sides are available in half portions which is not stated on the menu. A side would be enough to share for two. My special friend's favorite ice cream is vanilla so I was excited because it is home made. It was so good along with a side of hot fudge. I am so glad we came to Capitol Grille because it was a memorable experience - but the best thing was being with my special friend. We will be back!

Absolutely Amazing!!!! – My Fiance' and I just moved out to Milwaukee recently from Los Angeles we are use to very good high end quality restaurants with superb service. One night we decided to have a romantic dinner for 2. We were driving around and found the Capital Grille. The food and service was amazing...we had one of the best nights we have ever had. From the minute we walked in through the doors. All the staff was superb!!! We would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for a great time at a place that treats you as if you were the owner :) I would definitly recommend Jeff as a waiter that you should have, he made our experience their amazing :)

Sincerely,

Great first experience – Having read several excellent reviews of The Capital Grille in Milwaukee, I decided to make reservations there to celebrate our anniversary. I did so online and was pleasantly surprised that we had a specially prepared table waiting for us. There was lots of attention to details, including some complimentary treats throughout the evening. These were nice touches that really added much to our special evening. The food was very good (although my Kansas City strip wasn't as superb as I had hoped: the prosciutto-wrapped scallops was a dynamite appetizer, the small filet was custom prepared to be crusty on the outside and medium on the inside and the mashed potatoes were wonderful.

If you are looking for a total dining experience, The Capital Grille will meet or exceed your needs. We will definitely be back.

Best steak for the buck ! – I have been working in Milwaukee for the past 6-months from Dallas, Tx and I would definitely recommend the Capital Grill in Milwaukee. Coming from Dallas where we pride ourselves on steak and chop houses, I have had none better than Capital. I visit Capital every week or two and the hostesses are always gracious, the wait staff is all very knowledgeable and they always greet me by name. The restaurant is clean, service is great and the food preparaton is outstanding. I highly recommend ordering the Kona crusting on any cut of steak. They have an extensive wine selection to go with any meal with a price range to meet any budget. I have tried other steak places in the Milwaukee downtown area but when I evaluate the quality of the food and experience for the price Capital wins hands down. Ask for Rachael as your server and you will never be disappointed.

If you've got the green, they'll make it worth your while – Make your reservations online and describe your dining preferences. They will cater to your every want/need. I thought valentine's day was as good a time as any to try the Capital Grille. I made my reservations online with a preference for a booth away from the kitchen. We arrived to be greeted by a friendly valet staff (complimentary) and we entered the restaurant. We had a short wait until my prefered seat became available, so we pulled up to the bar where a very knowledgeable and friendly bartender made us our drinks to perfection. After pulling up the reservation, everyone from the host to the person who led us to the table and the server all called us by first name. Although it was very crowded, the setting was intimate and the decor was first class. During our dinner, we were greeted by one of the managers, who made us feel right at home. The suggestions from the server were right on and we fell in love with the bottle of pinot noir which was paired with my swordfish and my girlfriend's filet mignon. My glass was never less than half full, the waitstaff kept a constant level of cleanliness and organization that I have yet to see anywhere else. The food was phenominal and the timing between drinks, appetizer and main course was perfect, the server never skipped a beat. The wine selection will astound you and there isn't an item you can find on the menu that will disappoint you. For special occations, there's no better place to dine than the Capital Grille. 1 appetizer, bottle of wine, 2 entrees will set you back $200 with tip but in my opinion, it was very well spent. The experience is one you have to savor and will leave you wishing you could return the following weekend. There isn't a bad thing I could say about my experience at the Capital Grille.

Excellent steaks and pretty good service too. – Sizzling, juicy, flavorful steaks. Broiled to perfection. We've had steaks this good in cities like Chicago and New York, but Milwaukee? I have to admit...impressive.

Best Steak in Milwaukee - Hands Down! – In terms of quality food in Milwaukee this restaurant is at the top! The steaks were absolutely out of this world...even the mashed potatoes were fantastic! Service is great too!

If it quantity you're looking for at a lower price this is not your place. For a bottle of wine, two steaks and one side our bill was $150...

In my opinion worth every penny!

A MUST! – I visited the Capital Grille last Friday. I had an amazing time. I am a restaurant manager and I have to say... WOW! The food was out of this world and the service was amazing. Capital Grille lives up to its name in each and every city that I have ever worked or been in. It is all about great food and memorale service that sets a restaurant apart from another one. I will continue to visit Capital Grille. I love the wine, the steaks and most of all... the service. Thank you for making a special night an amazing one! To one restaurant lady to another... you know how to make a guest feel appreciated.
