Wine and Dine in Orlando, Part II

You can never go wrong with a classic, Capital Grille - Orlando is located in the middle of the busiest street in town, International Drive. The environment is the same that has characterized the chain for many years, dark and sexy, lots of action around the bar, very elegant and sober in the dinning room.

We were received by our hostess that accommodated us in the bar while our table was set up, we had a martini and shortly after we were seated. The wine list is not extensive, but we could find something we liked the Casa  Lappostole Cuvee Alexander. A Chilean Wine that my father likes, very robust and heavy, he enjoys it with some nicely cooked steak and delicious sides like steamed asparagus, creamed spinach and sweet corn... They bottle is usually priced around $60 which is good cause it is not a cheap wine in stores, it goes from $30 - $35 in the shelves.

The attention was great at the restaurant, our waiter was very nice and friendly, not to mention this time around our cocktails very fabulous! And you get two waiters to make sure your experience is pleasurable.

The temperature of the steaks was great, and the desserts were very good as well, we thought the Creme Brulee was way better than the Chocolate/Hazelnut cake my parents ordered.

Overall we were happy with the environment, service and quality of the food at the Capital Grille, I would definitely recommend it to any of my friends visiting Orlando!
