Capital Grille - Chestnut Hill
The quality and taste of theThe quality and taste of the steak was great, but it was a bit too charred, even though it was butterflied. The asparagus was also too charred, and we couldn't eat all of it. The dessert (cheesecake) was superb.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great experienceWe had a great experience at the Capital Grille. They gave us a great table in the corner. Service was top notch. The menu had a good variety and everyone enjoyed their choices. Second time we eat there with our friends and we're sure to go back again.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerMy wife and I have brought our three young children to the Capital Grille for our anniversary dinner for a number of years. The service is always great. They are fantastic with the kids and the food can't be beat.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAlmost ExcellentHaving eaten at the Capital Grille in DC and Baltimore, one knows to expect the best steaks, and in Boston, something with lobster. An enjoyable, business dinner with great steaks, wine and accompaniments. The calamari appetizer with hot peppers was a twist on the Rhode Island style with banana peppers and quite successful. But the 'crab' and lobster cake need to be rethought. While the lobster in it was sweet and perfectly cooked, the crabmeat was not up to standards and tasted like sawdust. A shame. I told the waiter I was from Maryland but he assured us it was great choice. Try a different appetizer.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific!First time at lunch. Excellent menu and a surprisingly good value. Service is always impeccable.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, we were met atAs always, we were met at the door by the Best people in the world Barb and Amy and then were escorted to the Table (13-2 ) for a fantastic dining experience with the # 1 server in New England ( Jill) who always seems to remember the order from drinks, apps and entrees sides and even the deserts.
Dorothy made her way by the Table several times to make us feel at home as always.
Thank you Capitol Grille!!!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways consistent, howeverAlways consistent, however even with a confirmed reservation we had to wait 30 minutes to be seated4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic as usualThis was our last dinner out before having our first child . The hostess decorated the table with "it's a girl" confetti which I thought was so thoughtful. Our meal was good. We both had to send our steaks back and they were not cooked correctly but it was a non issue. My only other criticism is after my husband finished his first drink the waitress took his glass as she walked by and didn't ask if he wanted another. Overall, food was great and we really enjoyed our date night.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a terrific spot for lunch!What a terrific spot for lunch!

The food as always was superb. I had the slice filet Mignon with mushroom and my wife had the Sirloin. She loves her steak very rare and the steak was perfect. The chopped Salad and the mash potatoes were great. The best part of the meal was our waiter. Our table was great and our waiter was attentive, very friendly, very helpful on choosing the right item on the menu and a real delight. Sorry I don't remember his name. He even provided a free dessert with a candle for our anniversary. We really enjoyed our meal and will be back again and again.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMService is excellent withService is excellent with the exception that they have a challenge committing to reservation times. I consistently find that it will always be at least a 15-20 minute wait beyond your reservation time.
We had an top not waiter who delivered our cocktails shortly after they were orders. We started with the Wagyu Beef Carpaccio with Wasabi Arugula appetizer which was excellent and whetted our appetite for our upcoming steaks. The steaks were cooked as ordered to perfection, mine medium rare and my wife's medium rare. Side dishes and the Spinach Salad With Warm Bacon Dressing complemented our meal. We chose and Italian red wine and our waiter brought it out to decant early so that it would be ready for out meal. An excellent experience.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother scrumptious burgerAnother scrumptious burger and cooked to perfection. Clearly the best in Chestnut Hill.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were at the Capitol GrillWe were at the Capitol Grill to celebrate my birthday. It was a fantastic meal and our server Moe was fabulous. He recommended a couple of high end wines that were final bottles at a discounted price allowing us to celebrate with a special wine we would not have usually tried.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI love capital grille theI love capital grille the surroundings, the food but this time the servicee was not up to par, I think they had a rush and maybe our waiter had too many tables to care for!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I are big fansMy husband and I are big fans of The Capital Grille, however, we were both disappointed with the quality of our steaks on this visit. My husband had a Delmonico steak and I had the Kona encrusted sirloin. Both of our steaks were very tough!
Our experience was pleasant and the servers were exceptional. And, we will certainly be back"4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently good food and serviceGreat meats and fish. Comfortable club style atmosphere.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMNew Lunch FindOur waiter,Denise, really made the experience. She is accommodating, friendly and energetic...so much so that I requested her after having dinner at the restaurant the week before. The food is fantastic...always done exactly as ordered. And this is the best restaurant week going. They offer real menu items with no skimping on size or cuts of meat. And it's a great addition to the lunch scene. I ordered my favorite wedge salad and they were totally willing to add chicken. The chicken was not your typical slices of grilled breast but rather a chicken quarter with the tangiest spice rub. It was out of this world. This a must place for a smart, up-scale lunch without exorbitant prices.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBe treated like royalty!We went to Capital Grille to celebrate our anniversary, and they were prepared for us when we arrived. From the moment we got there until the moment we left, their staff warmly greeted us, congratulated us and celebrated with us. The food was wonderful (as always, this was not our first time), perfectly prepared, and generous. We were comped dessert, which left us full to bursting.
We had a wonderful time.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWent here for the Easter Brunch,Went here for the Easter Brunch, we(11) have always gone to another restaurant that was very comparable but they seem to not keep name reservation from past (every Easter 10+ years).

Sean, our waiter, was amazingly good. Everything we ordered was fabulous. I've been to a couple of your other locations, and they have been consistently good. Lovely food, but this was an over the top experience for two of us. I don't know if it was because of the Managing Partner, Jeff Dixon, or that particular chef. What I do know is that our waiter, Sean, was as delightful as could be.

We had reservations for our anniversary. The hostess addressed me by name and seated us promptly. We were surprised to arrive to our table that had been sprinkled with heart confetti. We also received a card from the waiter congratulating us on our anniversary. Also enclosed was a card for free calamari appetizer on our next visit.
The free valet parking was also nice. While the restaurant was busy, I never waited more than 5 mins for dropping or picking up the car.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a greta take.
