As a charter member of the elcheepo society I rarely rate expensive restaurants highly but the Capital Grill is an exception! Service was superb as was the food and atmosphere. Try it for lunch when the prices are less to see if you agree.

Great food and service. It's amazing. The Filet Mignon excellent. The specials of the day were great choices. You can go wrong. This restaurant is in a great location, close to lots of museums, clothing and the White House.

Great food, great location, great service. This has to be one of the best restaurants in DC. Steak melted in the mouth and the sprouts, the sprouts. Whether you are there for business (as I was), socially, romantic couple or big crowd, you won't go...More
