Service was just there nothing really special. Sides were just okay as were the steaks we ordered. The only thing that differentiated it from other places is the price and the fact there is a dress code (minimal). Best described as an upscale Applebee’s.

We visited here on Friday September 3 to celebrate a birthday. There were 3 in our party. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. She made solid recommendations and checked on us just enough.

Amazing from beginning to end! The food is superb! The service is Fabulous, Nicholas was our waiter in the bar. Very helpful, knowledgeable and welcoming. I highly recommend this restaurant. It is a dressier place. Reservations are a good idea.

You will not be disappointed with Capital Grille. It’s not just going out to eat, it really is an experience. The food is consistently amazing and their attention to detail and service is IMPECCABLE. It’s a fine dining restaurant so it’s pricey, but you will...not regret the money you spend here. YUM. Conclusion: Capital Grille is my favorite restaurant in Milwaukee, and you should definitely try it.More

We requested a certain table and a certain waiter. When we arrived we were told the waiter was off for the night and the table we asked for was reserved for five or more and we we only 4. Later a table of four came...in and were given the very table we requested and they did not even have a reservation. The entrees were brought to the table when salad plates had not even been cleared nor had steak knives even been brought. The sign outside says no hats but one of the “gentleman “ that took the table we requested had a baseball hat on through out dinner. The food was very good but the whole experience was not close to the experiences of past visits. DISSATISFIED DISAPPOINTINGMore

We went for Dinner. our waiter Brian N. was totally amazing, best waiter we have had anywhere. Fresh onion soup is delicious. Steaks were tender and flavorful and done to perfection. We had the brussels sprouts which Brian recommended, they were amazing my husband hates...brussels sprouts but managed to eat most of them. Make sure you have the coconut cream pie for dessert. only negative is they should have much better olives for their martinis. We will be back.More

Fantastic dining experience. Steaks were done to perfection. I would recommend the crab cakes to anyone with a weakness for seafood.

I had a dinner with my buddies here last month. A variety of cocktails and drinks but I suggest trying the Stoli Soli. A great quality meats and sides led to a fantastic meal.

I stopped in at the Capital Grille in Milwaukee for a lunch with friends during a conference, and was very happy with the service and food. I chose a New York strip with fries, and found it to be well prepared. Despite our large table...size, our server was able to split checks, which I greatly appreciated. The restaurant itself is stately and elegant in its design, making a nice setting to escape from Milwaukee.More

From the beginnings to the main course, the food was outstanding. The service on the other hand was slightly unfriendly.

I believe I am tough but fair. I travel extensively and have found my recommendations and critiques valued by many. I do tend to call out those who show impressive products and services and those that are quite the opposite... More

Don't wear anything you wouldn't wear to church. Shorts, T-shirts and ripped jeans are out! Some dress up but everyone dresses nicely. Don't embarrass your date. Enjoy!!
