Had planned to spend an evening with a good friend here. Initially all looked good, service friendly and efficient. We had steaks that arrived minutes after the order, which is kind of strange. The beef was certainly not worth the price. A bit dry (medium...More

Good restaurant, with high quality meat and dishes. Maybe the choice of wine was bit limited and expensive. Good service, slightly too much waiting for the courses

This is the 4th Capital Grille I have visited. I find it incredulous to experience consistency of excellence across all locations of a chain, but we did. Amazing service, food quality and ambiance.

Great food and beautiful atmosphere. The wait staff was attentive and professional. I had the mushroom burger with truffle fries. Highly recommend it.

It was a Saturday night with no reservations. Everything was crowded and didn't want to eat in the hotel. Tried the Capital Grille on the chance that the masses would not be going in and only those with reservations would be present. They too were...More

Always a fantastic meal - from the crab/avocado appetizer, to the always able to cut with a fork filet! Pair these with an exceptional bottle of wine from the large selection available, and it doesn't get an better than this. Wait staff is always friendly...More

I agree with all of the above; I feel the restaurant is on a little higher plateau than some...we dressed up to go there, and saw many men in business attire, but we also saw a couple pairs of jeans!

What is the difference between Ocean View and Ocean Front Room? The Ocean Front room cost is higher, although based on the website description, the room size is slightly smaller. Please describe the difference. Looking forward to booking a stay in February! In the past trips to PR we have stayed at the Ritz or LaConcha.

I'm confused. This is a question about a hotel, not the Capital Grill, which is a restaurant. The Capital Grill is close to the Bay, but has no water view as it is a block back from the bay.

Your ship has come in. The Capital Grille in Baltimore is located right in the Inner Harbor. A location every bit as special and impressive as our restaurant is. Come and experience everything from our famous dry aged steaks and chops to exceptional seafood. An award-winning selection of 400 wines. And an atmosphere of comfortable elegance. Any excuse to not try it, simply won't hold water.
