The end of an era – This restaurant has realy gone downhill. Staff lacks knowledge, dirty carpets, etc. There are so many other options in the city that the Capitol Grill is no longer the only upscale dining option available. The hotel also is not as concerned with the customer service as it once was. It's a shame.
A Real Joke – Not even close to 5 stars. The barmaids were more interested in talking to each other and had no clue as to what spirits they were serving (i.e. after asking them about items behind the bar they would say "it's good" or "I like it"). The restaurant was better but way overated. The funny thin is, I found out that other Citysearch comments that were posted were by other hotel employees (tonyasean - the Chef & reminias - the Hotel Manager for example). What a joke!
Great Special Occasion Location – My fiancé and I recently moved to the area and we were extremely impressed with this restaurant. The food was incredible and the service was outstanding. Our server's name was Connie and she was very friendly and also recommended several other restaurants in the area for us to try. While there you must also check out the men's restroom. It was restored to the original art deco design and is definitely not something to be missed. This is a must for anyone going out for a special night out.
wow!!!!!!! – Love this place! I treat myself to Capitol Grill as often as I can. Truly one of the best places in the Ville!
Perfect service, atmosphere and food – The Service, food and atmosphere at the Capitol Grill make it the only place in Nashville that i consistently recommend to all VIPs in our Hotel. My dining experience was pefect from start to finish and everytime i send a group to this restaurant, they come back raving.
A surprise – My wife and I enjoyed a very favorable evening at Capitol Grill. We found the bar staff and waiter to be very well trained. The food was unique without being pretentious. I have suggested this to a number of business associates and friends. The prices were about what we see in most upscale restaurants in the Chicago Metro.
Overpriced – My husband and I went to Capitol Grill for my birthday. Although the atmosphere was very romantic (rose petals on the table), the food left much to be desired. We ordered the scallop appetizer, and for about $14 got TWO scallops (they were only okay - a bit chewy). I ordered a filet for dinner and asked for medium to medium-well. This filet had to be one of the driest and most uninteresting filets that I've ever ordered at a fine restaurant. It even had a good bit of fat that I had to trim off. When you spend over $200 for a meal for two, you expect everything to be just about perfect. We didn't even bother getting desert, but opted to go to F.Scott's for a more interesting enviornment. Definitely choose somewhere else for a "fine dining" experience.
The grand dining room of the historic Hermitage Hotel attempts to achieve food and service to match its storied setting. – In Short
Vaulted ceilings, European banquettes and plush fabrics create an atmosphere of opulence and luxury. At breakfast and lunch, this is the biggest power scene in town. The dinner crowd consists of theatergoers, special-occasion diners and expense-account types. The upscale, Southern-tinged menu offers plenty of fabulous-sounding options, like the buttery lobster with orzo and peas. Not-to-be missed extra side include sauteed sweet potatoes with lump crab meat or stone-ground cheese grits.
Wow! – From beginning to end, this is what a historical dining experience should be. Upon arival, the period-dressed doormen directed us to the underground bar. There the bartender, a gentleman with a pencil-thin mustache crafted the PERFECT martini and told us the history of the Hotel and restaurant. We then dined in the Capitol Grille. Every course was more impressive than the last. Roncie, our server was on top of everything through out the night. We then retreated to the upstairs lobby to finish our drinks on plush chairs by the fireplace. The all-male service staff accents the professionalism of the establishment. It doesn't get much better than this!
Very Disappointed – I was very disappointed. The service was impersonal and poorly trained. The tuna entree was very poor quality and the assistant waiter took the full plate away without a comment. After the waiter was told that the tuna was poor quality, he just curtly replied, "I wish I had known". Nothing was adjusted on the bill. We are avid diners at area restaurants and we will not be back to this disappointing stuffy restaurant.
