We had appetizers only with wine. The oysters on the half shell were as fresh and wonderful as any we have had. The tuna tartare was equally tasty. We sat at the bar which we often choose to do and received excellent attention. I can't say enough about the experience.

We had dinner at the capital grille yesterday. The food was good, service was great. Not the place to go on a budget though. Consistently good though from location to location.

The Capital Grille is always known for it's great steaks and personal wine storage. This restaurant doesn't disappoint in this area. The service is also quite good, very attentive.
