Best place for steak! – My husband and I frequent the Capital Grille and we love it! The service out does any other restaurant in the area. We always look forward to dining with the incredible staff, and the continuous quality we have come to embrace. The food is always cooked to perfection and the host staff is always so welcoming! We can't get enough of this place, we spend every special ocaision there as well. Recommend it to everyone, but make sure you make reservations. It's so great it is hard to get in without them!
Our New Favorite Restaurant! – Capital Grille is by far the BEST Steak Restaurant in the Tampa Bay area. The service is outstanding. The attention to detail, the attentiveness of each and every member of the staff is such that our family feels at home and welcome whenever we visit. We have had quiet romantic dinners and wonderful celebrations at the Capital Grille. The staff has made every dinner with them special. They go out of their way to make sure your special event is unforgettable. Cakes, Roses, Confetti you name it they will have it ready and waiting! We were so impressed with the Capital Grille our first few visits that we now regularly hold business meetings during Dinner and also had our Holiday Dinner for our staff in one of the private rooms there. We feel it is a wonderful place to bring a client, friend or relative if you are looking to impress. The Steaks are prepared to perfection. The side dishes are so good it is hard to pick just one. The seafood is equally as fresh and prepared perfectly.
Another great feature is that it is open for lunch Monday - Friday. I love the steak sandwich!
Move over Bern's, Ruth and Charley's Capital Grille has taken over the town! Treat yourself you won't be disapointed. Capital Grille has become our new favorite restaurant!
The Place to Close the DEAL! – I have found the restaurant to close the deal! I took clients to The Capital Grille in Tampa and the steaks and service were right on! My clients were impressed and Kevin made me feel like a million bucks. It is nice to not worry about the dinner and concentrate on the close. My new office is at table 63 my assistant is Kevin.
Cuisine fit for royalty - and service is KING – Nowhere else in Tampa will you be treated better than here. This is the first restaurant I've encountered where the service is as excellent as the food. You'll get good steak elsewhere, but most steakhouses around the Bay won't provide a staff that bends over backwards for you. The kitchen can prepare anything you desire, even if it's not on the menu. When I couldn't find desserts that I wanted, my waiter LEFT THE BUILDING to go to a neighbouring restaurant and BUY IT FOR ME. Later I saw the same waiter delivering wine to a customer at the martini bar around the corner because that bar had run out. Think something like that would happen at Bern's? Or Charlie's? Or Ruth's Chris? Or Fleming's? Not a chance. This young man even sent me a "thank you" note a couple of days later. He didn't have to do that, just like he didn't have to go out of his way for someone else's tiramisu. That's service. That's CLASS. It's no wonder that competing restaurateurs circle this place like sharks, trying to scarf up ideas along with customers. Innovative menu items like dry-aged strip dusted with espresso or ribeye dressed with dried mushrooms and aged balsamic are not only superb, but compliment classic steakhouse fare like filet mignon, creamed spinach, and french onion soup. Sure, it can get crowded and a little noisy, but what popular places don't? The food is spectacular, the wine is top-notch, and the customer is the center of attention. At those other places, you're just another carnivore. Here, you're a guest, treated like you deserve to be.
Tampa just struck Gold – WOW! This place is the real deal. Upon enrty, we were made to feel relaxed and welcome. Our waiter (John U.) was upbeat, professional, and really friendly. He helped us select our wine from their bountiful wine list. We had the steak oscar and the lamb. Both were the best we've ever had. This place is gold. I will seek out The Capital Grille in other cities when we travel.
What Happened in Tampa? – The Capital Grille is reknown nationwide, but my experience in Tampa was not up to the hype. The steaks were overcooked and tough, the service barely better than casual dining, and the wine list over-rated and over-priced. I hope one of the Capital Grille corporate staff visits Tampa soon to get this site up to the quality of DC or Philadelphia.
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – Critically acclaimed upscale restaurant serves aged steaks, chops, seafood and desserts. 5,000 bottles of wine to choose from.
Great Steaks and Killer Wine List – For a new restaurant they are doing it right! Great Hospitality, Excellent food and a breathtaking building. Close to Blue Martini for the after dinner activities!
