I wanted an upscale steak after a four-day conference, so I chose to try the Capital Grille. The decor was nice as were the smiles on the staff. I ordered a steak, the mashed potatoes, and the wild mushrooms, and I was really looking forward...More

Service was fine and the food was good but not excellent. That would ordinarily be an experience that would justify an occasional visit. However, the cost for a dinner for two far surpassed the cuisine making it a poor value. There are better in Pittsburgh.
