Capital Grille - Chestnut Hill
CelebrationWe celebrated a birthday and a year of academic achievement. It was a special night that we enjoyed with our children and the staff at the Capital Grill made it memorable with extra special service, including a fabulous gratis dessert plate.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother AMAZING dinner!Once again, an outstanding evening filled with the best food and service around. Our waiter Sean was superb! Attentive, friendly and can pour a drink like no other! And kudos to Chef Hugues who once again prepared a five star dinner! We try new restaurants but always end up returning to Capital Grille in Chestnut Hill where we know we will NEVER be disappointed!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific EveningA special birthday dinner for my beau and his adult children (with significant others). The folks at the restaurant couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. The food was delicious and the service was wonderful. And they even took the time to add fresh fruit to the birthday cake which I dropped off at the restaurant during the day. A lovely touch and a great evening.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect SteakI get the NY Strip every time because it s always seasoned and cooked to perfection. Big huge baked potatoes and a large platter of creamed spinach are fantastic. Unlike other steakhouses that have cut back on the sides these are definitely enough for two. This s my favorite "treat" that always makes me look forward to dinner and satisfied when I leave!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was OK, but not great.Food was OK, but not great. Service was truly outstanding.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, a bit crowdedWe really enjoyed our experience at Capital Grille. The food is outstanding and the service was good. The flourless chocolate cake was truly amazing - save room! My only complaint is that the tables are pretty close together and it was crowded, even on a Wednesday night. We felt a little exposed, and could hear the conversation at the next table very clearly. Nevertheless, we will be back!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSolid 5 stars steak houseWe went there for our anniversary and had a wonderful time, service was over all good but our waiter could've put on a little smile. He was just too serious, that kind of gave us a little non relaxing feelings.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat SteakFood was delicious. The only complaint I have is that my steak was not that hot when it arrived. It wasn't cold, but it was cool enough to make me think it had sat for a while. (perhaps waiting for the other meals at our table to be ready? we were a party of 3).5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first experienceThis was our first experience at Capital Grille in Chestnut Hill and we enjoyed it tremendously. We had the filet mignon & shrimp special and the salmon special which were both wonderful. I also love the artwork; I felt like I was at the MFA.
It was our 39th anniversary and we were treated like royalty with rose petals on the table and a decadent slice of chocolate cake for dessert!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat mealNice time at the Capital Grille. Our table was ready when we got there and service was nice. No rush and food came to the table hot and delicious.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSalad special was excellentSalad special was excellent .. Delmonico was its usual best! service was very attentive. always come back ... at least 4 times ayear ...5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe Give This a Ten!We were 3 adults and 1 9 year old boy. The food and service were superb. We all were completely satisfied and would recommend Capital Grille highly!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat lunch menuCapital Grille always delivers, and now they have a luncheon menu which is excellent. Despite being rightfully known for their steaks, the scallops were the best I have ever tasted. Fine service and elegant surroundings made for a fine meal.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Best in Chestnut HillWe love everything about this restaurant !!!
The ambiance , hostesses. manager, wait staff and most of all
the master chef. The quality and service is always consistent !!!
We have had many small functions there and dine there on a regular basis!!
We give this restaurant five stars.,you will not be sorry if you choose Capital
P.S. go with a hearty appetite, portions are large!!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe calamari appetizer wasThe calamari appetizer was huge. The meal was good, the steak cooked perfectly and our server worked very hard, maybe harder than she should have. More help could have been used at the tables. We sat at a booth across a narrow aisle from a booth where a diner in a chair was positioned. People (customers) had to squeeze sideways to travel between the back of that person in the aisle and our dining surface. I could overlook this in the North End or smaller, older places, but not in something as modern as this.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMattention to special occasionWe went to celebrate my daughter's graduation and the staff made a big fuss. Even had table confetti with cap & gown shapes. It was a nice touch. Food was very good, wine overpriced though. We would go back.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFor a special nightWe went here to celebrate my husband's birthday and the staff couldn't have been nicer or more attentive. We both had outstanding steaks and enjoyed the chocolate espresso cake our waiter brought us for dessert. We will definitely go back on another specia occasion.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was top notch.Everything was top notch. However, when bagging the leftovers they forgot to add all the meat. Also a patron was having an argument with their spouse and slightly spilled his drink on me while I was sitting in a booth. I did not say anything at the time. However, the manager should be walking around to make sure that does not happen. Friday nights can be tough, I understand. People tend to over do it when trying to unwind. Over all we had a great time though.
Vinnie5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best steak house in TheThe best steak house in The Newton area. Capital Grill does almost everything in a top notch way. No true prime meats but excellent selections otherwise.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe 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!

We've often had dinners at Capital Grill and they are special times - but much more expensive than lunch.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA place you can count onFood and service were excellent. I have been here many times and each time I find consistency in quality, service, and ambience.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMnever disappointed. The searednever disappointed.

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). Every year seems I have to be put on a waiting list for they are already booked. Thought it was time I would give Capital Grille Chestnut Hill a try. We were so pleased with everything, server could not be more gracious, food delicious and the menu made our family of ages 269-85 very happy!

It's really become a tradition for us and I have to say that Capital Grille has adjusted and made this a much better experience over the past couple of years. We always request Dave Bressler as our server, and Dave once again was in top form, friendly, attentive and helping us out with a great Cabernet suggestion to accompany our meal. It goes without saying that we will be back!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMReservation times do not expectReservation times do not expect them to adhere to the you have to wait considerable time in peak periods even though you have a reservation3/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
