Capital Grille - Boston
Loved this place!Food was great. Nice wine list. I let them know it was a birthday celebration and they decorated the table and had the staff sign a birthday card which was pretty thoughtful. Definitely recommend this place for special occasions!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Place for a Special DaySteaks cooked to perfection, delicious vegetable sides to share and an excellent wine list - not a bad start at all. The service was top-notch - knowledgable, efficient and friendly. The extra touches to acknowledge my son's graduation was especially nice. This was my first visit and the only thing that needs to be done differently is to bring a bigger appetite next time. And there will be a next time!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Service ever experiencedExcellent service ... more like a pleasant discussion with a new friend, than an order taker ... ask for Molly!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome StaffIt was my daughters birthday and everyone went above and beyond to make it special. Thank you5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steakhouse--with optionsWe had a great salad that was a special tomato, feta, pine nut situation. Delish! I got the halibut special--sesame crusted with spring veg and bok choy, the fillet was thick in the middle and thin on the sides so the middle was perfectly cooked, while the outsides were ever so slightly overcooked, but overall I'd get it again. Others had the Parmesan crusted Sole (really good), the steak au poivre, and the salmon--which they made gluten free. We also got an order of the asparagus (really good--charred), potatoes au gratin (good, but not the best I've ever had, especially for the calories), and green beans (buttery and delish).The ambiance was great, we had a bottle of wine. The bill (including tip) was about $400. Great for a celebration.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEarly mothers day dinnerthe indoor dining room was too dark, and it was a beautiful day out, so we asked to sit out on the patio. the staff was very attentive to us, even though we were the only party out on the patio.
the french green beans with heirloom tomatoes were the highlight of the meal. Also, the truffled fries were amazingly crispy and flavorful.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWeekend in BostonSpent the weekend in Boston, and decided to give Capital Grille a try on a Saturday night. The place was hopping! We were offered a 5 pm or 9 pm reservation, and opted for 5. Boy, are we glad we did! We had an amazing dinner. The filet mignon we all ordered was excellent. We all agreed it was probably one of the best steaks we ever had. Had a spinach salad, mashed potatoes, and a great bottle of Cabernet. We were a little skeptical at first being that it is a chain restaurant, but we were so happy that we gave it a try.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMcelebration Dinner for the GraduateAlways love the Capital Grill. Food and service are outstanding. As the was a very special occasion, we picked one of the best spots in Boston!!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome, but pricyWent here to celebrate daughter's graduation. It was the perfect place for such a big occasion. The food, the ambiance, were awesome. We went late so no one wanted to drink, but their wine list was intense! We'll get to it next time. The steaks were tasty and cooked to perfection. It's a limited menu, but that's for the best...better to be great at a few things than just 'okay' at a lot.
The only thing you need to be aware of is the cost. But don't let that stop you. Cuz if you do, you'll miss out on one of the best dining experiences in Boston.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMCapital Grille 5213Incredible service, delicious food. Very highly recommended.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial PlaceWe were celebrating our Granddaughter's graduation and the service and food were
outstanding. They decorated the table with graduation decorations and provided a piece of cake
to her with a candle. The service was outstanding.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLet the waiter pick the wineIt's your classic Boston steak house, with an excellent bone-in sirloin. First time in years (?) the waiter actually urged us to get the least expensive of three Cabernets I was looking at. And it was very, very good. Try the creamed corn with bacon. Only 9zillion calories, but worth it for a change from the same old creamed spinach.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI've dined at this restaurantI've dined at this restaurant before back home in Florida. However, this was my first dining experience here in south Boston. I'd absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking for exceptional food and service.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the Capital Grille.Love the Capital Grille. Great service as always. Wife's birthday and it was a treat! They always take care of us!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you want to have a placeIf you want to have a place where the staff is tops and many of the people have years of experience working there, this is the place. I know there is some down grade in the Boston ambience experience from the Newbury location to Boylston St. but for those trying to hang on, Move forward. Rob, Kelly, Chuck, Jeramie run the bar with complete professionalism and they can bring it to a personal level that makes to feel like family. Mark and Chris at the front entrance just go beyond in making your experience the best. The valet service is top's they open doors and secure the parking process.

Mission accomplished!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis steak house never disappoints.This steak house never disappoints. Fabulous cuts of meat, cooked to perfection. The atmosphere was vibrant and our waiter Dan H. did an exceptional job.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent dining experienceI have eaten at Capital Grille both at their Chestnut Hill location as well as their downtown location (previously Newbury Street but now located on Boylston Street). It bears mentioning that across the six or seven visits in total, the service and food have always been exceptional. You pay that extra bit of money to be treated very well, and if something goes wrong, they will happily and promptly fix it (though this rarely happens). The steak is phenomenal, and if you like it "PIttsburgh rare" there are few other restaurants that will prepare it that way. I can't recommend Capital Grille enough.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe BestAnother fantastic experience at one of our favorite restaurants. New location is beautiful. Outstanding service and the best fries in Boston.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AM6 Stars?It starts with the impeccable service, the atmosphere but ended with the absolute best steaks in the city.

The Capital Grill in Boston probably rates among my top experiences. Food was excellent and prepared as ordered, desert (cocanut cream pie, cheesecake) were both fantastic, very light. Above all, our waiter was the best, helpful, funny, but not intrusive.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was wonderful!Everything was wonderful! Would definitely return and recommend !

Our evening started at the bar for a few drinks before dinner. My Cosmo was made perfectly. We were seated at our table and our server was extremely friendly, polite and had great suggestions. I will send a special note about him for sure. Our dinners were cooked perfectly. Our sides were delicious.

Magnificent!!!!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMLives up to its reputationIncredible steakhouse that got a few notches better when they moved to the new location on Boylston Street. My wife's filet mignon was perfect and the waiter didn't seem super confused when she ordered it "medium rare plus". My Kobe-rubbed steak was excellent as well. One thing to be cognizant of is that the portions of the side dishes are pretty large. So, a single potato and vegetable is more than enough for two people. In fact, we can even skip the potato and save carb room for the wonderful desserts. The flourless chocolate cake was excellent and the ice cream is homemade.
Valet parking is a reasonable $16 and they are relatively quick (about 10 minutes most nights).3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Experience at Capital GrilleMy husband and I were celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary and we were provided with splendid service by our waiter and our experience overall was 5 star plus. All the dishes were made to perfection, and the steak was definitely one of the best that we have ever had. To top it off, the dessert menu was so extensive, and the creme brulee just melted in our mouthes. Everything was so delicious and we just didn't want to leave the restaurant. The overall ambiance, quality of the food and service exceeded our expectations, especially knowing that it was restaurant week, and we will definitely return in the near future.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMBest meal and service I haveBest meal and service I have had at a restaurant in the longest time!

I made the reservation through Open Table and left a comment that we would be celebrating my 24th birthday. We arrived at our table, which had a personalized birthday card and festive confetti delicately scattered across the tablecloth. We enjoyed the extensive wine list and Restaurant Week fare. I ordered my go-to favorite, the 8 oz. filet, which was cooked to perfection (as always). Our server, Francis, helped make the evening special; all of the staff were so attentive, courteous, and helpful. We will definitely return to this Back Bay location as soon as can!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMCaptial Grille never disappoints.Captial Grille never disappoints. My party was lucky to be seated in small room away from the crowds & noise. The steak & potatoes were great. The green beans were a bit too buttery for my tastes. And once again I was able to pair my dinner w/a glass of Catena Malbec.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMy trip to Capital GrilleMy trip to Capital Grille was what I expected and a great choice for a gathering. Steakhouses are my favorites and our dinner was fabulous. I was going to go for the usual Filet but went with the recommended Bone-In Kona Dry Aged Sirloin and it was to die for. I can't leave out the Mashed Potatoes, everyone was raving about them. Really nice evening so if you havne't tried the Grille, you should.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food - Even Better Service!Great food, but what made it even better was the service!
