I’ve been going to the capital Grille in Tysons for ages and really like it. This was my first visit to the Fairfax location and I was beyond impressed. A beautiful new venue, with a wine list of mile long.

Overall a great experience, with friendly staff. Highly recommend the calamari, crab cakes, and the filet mignon. The mashed potatoes were also excellent. Went on a busy night, so the kitchen was very backed up.

My husband and I went to Capital Grille for our wedding anniversary and I don’t know what was better, the food, or the service. Our filets were delicious. We ordered the mashed potatoes, mushrooms and asparagus for sides. All delicious, but we didn’t like the asparagus because it came with lemon. We had the wedge salad and the Caesar, both delicious. Our waiter, Johnny, was SO nice and accommodating. He brought us our complementary champagne and dessert! Definitely will go back!

The food here was tasty though I didn’t love the seabass as it lacked flavor. Everything else was really tasty. The service was great; Jeff was fantastic in taking care of our table. Overall, it was a great dinner!

Our server, Parker, absolutely made our night perfect. All of his suggestions were on point. The energy and service he brought was beyond amazing. Not only was the food (steak tartar, Kona steak, filet mignon, lobster tail, brussel sprouts, wild mushrooms) gourmand, but our experience with Parker will definitely have us coming back.

We came in for my father-in-law’s birthday and really had a good time. Our waiter, Rahul, treated us extremely well and even made sure our baby stayed happy. In addition to that, everything we ordered was delicious.

Great experience! We had reservations for 8pm and literally got sat at 8:05, which was very good. When we arrived to our table they had it set up with a rose and card for our anniversary! The server recommended food and drinks and his picks were on point, I really enjoyed the side car. The food was great! I did have a problem with my steaks temp two times under cooked. The Chef did deliver my steak and made sure it was at the right temp, as it was after he personally cooked it. The staff still made sure I was happy by refreshing my sides and having the manger as well to come over and check. They made sure my experience was nothing but perfect! At the end of my dinner they brought a surprise dessert that was also good. I definitely recommend this restaurant, they show so much care about their customers I wasn’t even made about the steak and they still get 5 stars because how the handle the situation.

I’ve walked past this location numerous times on my daily walks and decided to make a reservation for my birthday. It was nothing short of amazing. They sat me at my own table in the bar area. The table had a happy birthday card set up. The service was great. My waiter took his time explaining the menu options and allowed time for me to decide. I’m a bariatric patient so he did show some concern when I wasn’t able to eat my full meal. I can assure you, it was wonderfully prepared and the flavors of each dish complimented each other. They even outfitted my dessert with a special happy birthday message and candle. I will definitely return.

I enjoyed a visit to this location alongside my family for my anniversary. The service was exceptional, and there are no complaints we had during our visit. The server was top-notch and VERY good with helping accommodate and entertain our young child.
