The Capital Grille Restaurant Review

: The ultimate pick for a business lunch, The Capital Grille provides corner tables where conversations can be heard, professional service and an impressive yet comfortable environment. And it's the place to take that special someone for a relaxing dinner. Situated off the lobby of the chic Conrad Indianapolis hotel, the restaurant lives up to its tony setting that includes photographs of famous Indiana personalities. The cold shellfish platter, ample enough for sharing, bears a pound of lobster, oysters on the half shell and shrimp nestled under a cocktail sauce. Dry-aged steaks are perfectly grilled, as are the double-cut lamb chops that pack a wallop of flavor. The well-selected wine list is presented by knowledgeable servers adept at pairing a wine to each course. House-made desserts, with such confections as coconut cream pie and espresso cake, draw the after-event crowd for sweets and coffee along with a late-night Cognac.
