My office is across the street from this restaurant, so I eat lunch here fairly frequently with clients. The lunch can be underwhelming, but I always assumed the dinner experience is a step-up. I was wrong. Capitol Grille experienced a renaissance of sorts in the mid-2000s and was arguably one of the best fine dining experiences in Nashville. I don't... More

We had fried green tomatoes on top of pimento cheese three times over the course of two day stay. In the sphere of southern cooking, this dish at the Capitol Grill is as good as it gets anywhere.

We read great reviews of this restaurant, so we decided to give it a try. The restaurant was not busy, ordered our dinner, got the salad within a reasonable wait, entree came much later, and the steaks were lukewarm, the butter on top of the steak did not even melt because it was not hot. The steak was over cooked,... More

Such a disappointment. The salmon was overcooked and dry. The waiter said it would be medium. The vegetables were awful. Terrible turnips and beets. Broccoli passable. The oyster appetizer was cold and poorly seasoned. We had a group of 8 and everyone rated the restaurant a D or worse.

Had lunch there yesterday and was blown away at the beauty of this restaurant. The inside of this place is spectacular. I had the salmon and it was prepared to perfection. Prices are a little high but well worth the few extra bucks just to see the place. I was way under dressed. Wear something nice so you don't feel... More

This restaurant is located in the gorgeous Hermitage Hotel. The restaurant is elegant. The drinks menu features interesting choices with a variety of bourbons. The prices are a bit steep, but the food was prepared and presented well. My teens had fried chicken and macaroni and cheese which they enjoyed. The menu features steaks and seafood.
