It is Friday during lent... and we love steak, but decided to stay the course and go for seafood. The salmon and sea bass were both excellent!! Service was excellent too! Flights were cancellend to NYC and when we mentioned this to our server, she brought us a complimentary dessert since we were missing a Broadway show. Nice touch!

Came in from out of town and Celebrated my teenage son's birthday. We had a fantastic time. We are steak lovers so we've had a number of locations to compare this with: everyone agreed this was one of the best if not the best experience we've had. The food was great, service was exceptional and they even took care recognize... More

We were close so we picked this place. I had the 16 oz bone in filet and my wife had the sea bass. Both were delicious. The lobster mac and cheese was the best I have had. Anne was our server and she made us feel very comfortable.

Both of us ordered the petite bone in filet special. I also had the sautéed spinach and mushrooms. He ordered shrimp for an appetizer. Service and food were very good as is usually the case here. Professional staff who take pride in their service level. Steak was cooked perfectly. Will definitely return.

My wife and I go here often. The staff is amazing and always treats the guests like royalty. The food is always top notch. We usually eat in the bar since we often go here after work and don't feel formal enough to sit in the dining room. There is a smaller bar menu as well that not many people... More

Stayed at the Hilton which we do often, one block away from the Capitol Grill. This is supposed to be a high end great restaurant. The service was mediocre and the food was less than mediocre. If you order a filet that is 44 dollars it should be spectacular. Not the case. There are so many great places in Milwaukee... More

All the personnel were friendly & gracious beginning with the parking valet and all the restaurant staff. Our server, Brian, was excellent. The food was outstanding - melt in your mouth. I have been here 6 times. Never a mistake!!!

This is a classic restaurant, wonderful atmosphere, professional servers, always a wonderful evening. Instead of a steak we opted for fish this visit, the salmon and ahi tuna dishes are outstanding! Looking forward to a return visit. Valet parking a nice perk.
