Lima Ohio doesn't know what a gem it has. Sure the service could be a little slow, but what's the hurry. The turn of the century building is beautiful inside and out. The steaks are as good as steaks in Chicago. The service was great as well. The staff allowed us to linger until past closing time, and then invited us upstairs for what nearly passed as a speakeasy. A great band, great dancing and great drinks. All in all a fantastic evening. I'd give it five stars if it wasn't in Ohio.
Wow. So impressed. We hosted a graduation party in May, and I have to say the food was nearly perfect -- no -- it was perfect. With 20 people we had the small private room, and the service was also perfect. Food came out the way we ordered, and it was fun passing around all of the side dishes. When you are paying this much money you want everything to be great, and it was.
I would highly recommend this Capital Grille. Top notch.
I give it six stars for food, atmosphere and service.
Fantastic atmosphere with elegant white chairs (how are they going to keep them clean?), white tablecloths and appropriate music. Service was extremely attentive...almost too much, but not quite. (One item to work on is not to remove plates when companions are eating. That's a major faux pas, especially in such an upscale restaurant.)
Food was tasty and delicious, but as an Italian-food snob, my dish had too many flavors going on in a too-deep of a bowl. Just too many ingredients...pasta, beans, sausage, eggplant, burrata, and tomatoes. Simple is more, especially when the pasta is homemade. The pasta bowls are a bit of a problem, as my wife's food basically sank to the bottom of the bowl, swimming in oil. She would have preferred a swallow dish so the sauce was spread out.
The Caesar's salad was delicious as well, but was unusually plated. The leaves of Romaine sat deconstructed on a long appetizer plate. After the meal we wondered if the salad needed to be in the bowl and the entree in long plate.
Four stars means it's good -- maybe great -- and we will be back.
Oysters and beer. Both cold and refreshing. Prices a little lower than across the street at Remington's. Service was very friendly and attentive. Fish fry and fried chicken looked good, but we were there just for appetizers. Nice view out the window at the river. It's a bit of a dive in a good way. I'd come back.
Stopped in for just a quick breakfast sandwich. The server rang it up and it came to $5.70 for an egg, ham, cheese on English muffin. Sorry, I walked out. Most charge 2.50 to 3.50 (including tax) in Buffalo. I walk by every morning, and I see no customers; I'm not surprised.
Best branzino I have ever had. Grilled with lots of flavor, and the sauce was delicious. The dozen oysters were cold, clean and huge. I can understand the comments relating to price, but you can look online and decide if that's the price range for you. Saturday, the place was full. I would say the only reason not to give five stars is the slow service. Our waiter was inattentive. It was tough to track him down several times. The busboys need a little -- maybe a lot -- of training. There's no reason at our table to grab plates across other guests, and spend time in front of my face stacking plates, utensils and glassware.
Panera used to be the alternative to fast food. I've tried this location 3 times in the last month, and the quality of the food, preparation and presentation are all low and disappointing. Sandwiches have little meat. Avoid the Chicken Chiptotle Panini completely. It's composed of little, tiny, crumbs of chicken. Not slices or a breast. Little chicklets of meat that I wouldn't put on a Caesar salad. And the panini was cold in the middle. The Tomato Mozzarella Panini suffers from a tomato that you can read through and mozzarella chunks with no flavor. The Garden Vegetable Soup at least was flavorful and hot. Kid's Mac & Cheese acceptable (but pricey at $4.99). Looks like Five Guys across the parking lot will be getting more business.
Our first trip to Rue Franklin was a big success. The meal, wine and dessert were perfect, and I rarely use that word. We started with appetizers of Crabmeat Timbale with Avocado and Tomato, and Smoked Venison served rare with Cherries. The combination of smoky, sweet and salt flavors of the venison trumpeted a restaurant of a highly competent chef. With a bottle of Chateauneuf-du-pape, all of the areas of the tongue were quickly engaged and satisfied.
Next came the entrees of Daube of Beef Ribs with cumin carrots, and Magret de Canard with lavender, fennel and peaches (although the breast of duck was substituted with legs). Again the wild taste of duck, and sweetness of peaches blended perfectly. Even the lavender and fennel brought a unique and flavorful complement to the meal. Finally the sauce brought the whole dish under the flag of France, with the richest, thinnest and most flavorful sauce concocted by a sous chef. The beef ribs as expected flaked off the bones with the flick of the fork. And the sauce screamed French fine dining.
The warm, sticky, fruity cherry crumble completed the birthday celebration.
I'm not sure where the other reviewers ate, since there is no way you can get these dishes and flavors at another Buffalo restaurant. I'd pay full price just to have the fennel again with a side of canard sauce.
Great for lunch, people watching on the porch. Food was great, but not memorable. Service was very sub-par for this price range. Waiter barely spoke, and grunted most of the time. Looked like this was the last place he wanted to be. I would never sit inside. It's a huge room that feels like...well, a huge room. As you walk in there were smaller rooms that had more charm, but those were not open. It's a place that should have more going for it than it really does.
