Holy fancy rehearsal dinner, batman.

Event Type: Rehearsal Dinner
"I was lucky enough to be at a wedding rehearsal dinner here as my husband-the-bridesman's date. I have no idea how much dinner cost and frankly I'm better off not knowing. This classy, sleek, sexy restaurant is attached to The Conrad, probably the nicest hotel in Indianapolis. So it's all very fancy and high-class. Our evening started with an open bar and little appetizers -- smoked salmon on toast points, stacked caprese bruchetta, seared ahi tuna on cucumbers. All delicious. Our dinner menu involved bread service, our choice of two salads, four entrees, family-style sides and a pre-selected dessert. I started with the spring greens, a perfectly dressed melange of lettuce and herbs. For an entree I had Kona-crusted filet mignon with shallot butter. HOLY DELICIOUS. I don't eat a lot of steak but this was a perfect medium, so tender and flavorful. Our sides were truffle fries (yum), sauteed haricot verts (yum) and .... lobster mac 'n' cheese. Which is every bit as decadent as it sounds. Excuse me, I'm drooling again. Dessert was a trio of peach, chocolate and vanilla ice cream served with our choice of warm chocolate and/or caramel sauce. Which was also tasty, but at this point, what more can you say? The staff was extremely attentive without being obnoxious. Everything was fantastic and based on our experience I would recommend The Capital Grille without hesitation for your special occasion."
