When I first saw the menu, I knew we had chosen the right place for our anniversary. All steak houses have steak, but The Capital Grille offered many seafood options as well, I wanted it all. We shared classics like shrimp cocktail, clam chowder, and ceasar salad for our appetizers. My wife chose the live Maine lobster, and I had decided to get a steak before we ever made the reservation. There were so many steaks to choose from but I decided on the specialty of the house, the dry aged porterhouse. There were many other selections that I also wanted to try, so when our server explained that I could basically create my own steak, I mixed and matched some of the suggestions on the menu and had my porterhouse with the porcini mushroom rub and the sauteed wild mushrooms and cippolini onions. The most tender and flavorful steak I have ever put in my mouth. The essence of fig and balsamico were perfect compliments to the steak. My wife's lobster was exceptional. We also shared the best creamed spinach I've ever had and the au gratin potates were amazing. The service was impecible. Not only was our server knowledgeable about the menu, which showed during the explanation of the daily specials and the specialties, but she also anticipated our needs. She was truly happy to be waiting on us.
Pros: Complimentary valet, exceptional views of the city, amazing food and service.
