The Capital Grille

1450 Larimer St. Denver, CO 80202 | Downtown Denver | 303-539-2500

Location Description:

Yes, it's a chain, but one thing a cowtown has -- by definition -- is a ridiculous number of fabulous steakhouses, and the Capital Grille consistently finds itself on top of list after list as the very best place in Denver for a perfectly grilled slab of meat. And it’s a case study in good service that’s far from corporate: This steakhouse gets everything right, from the second the valet takes your key to the moment he returns it. The entire front-of-the-house staff is professional, honest and confident. In fact, everything about the restaurant -- from the hand-cut steaks and perfectly set tables to the flawless service, cool lunches and killer weekend dinners -- is a model against which all other steakhouses are judged. Although there might be better individual steaks, better sides, better drinks, even the occasional better night at another beef palace, no other place in town puts it all together the way the Capital Grille does.
