Diner Reviews
  • "We met a business acquaintance for lunch and had a spectacular meal. The service was top-notch. I had seared scallops and clam chowder. Both were cooked perfectly. The clam chowder wasn't too salty and the clams were not rubbery. They don't rush you and the food came out at a reasonable time. We will be going back"

  • "I really enjoyed the food here but I just cannot seem to justify the price. It is a large chain so I guess they can get away with it. The food was perfect, the waiter was a little over-attentive- I don't need you at our table EVERY 90 seconds. But other than that it is definitely a romantic place to go for a special occasion."

  • "Celebrated a good friend's birthday and everyone had a night to remember - waiter/waitress were very attentive and took very good care of all of us."

  • "always solid but for the price they need to be more consistent in service execution when its busy....small things like bringing the honey and sweetener when the coffee and tea come out and making sure silver is on the table before dessert is served and checking that customers have everything they need right after main course come out.....however,had swordfish special it was fabulous"

  • "Really enjoyed previously for lunch but found dinner to be significantly overpriced for good, but far from great, steaks. Steaks didn't compare to any of the better places around (even just locally). Service and ambiance excellent. Service was as good as it gets as a matter of fact. Cost however.... almost 200$(with tip) for 2 salads , 2 drinks, one steak/porterhouse split (more than enough steak btw) and 3 sides plus 2coffees seems stiff(although they did throw in dessert which was a nice touch). We did have a nice night however .Will probabaly try again at lunch but not dinner"

  • "We went to Capital Grill to celebrate our anniversary with our two children 8 & 4. My children are very well behaved in restaurants, however, there is always the risk of a meltdown. Our waiter could not of been nicer to our kids and really moved our order along as we requested. My oldest was just in awe of the food and preceded to tell the waiter and the managers. The manager passed on the 8 year old reviews of his amazing steak and at the end of our meal the executive chef came out to meet my boys with ice cream on the house! Needless to say it was an amazing experience for them thanks to the amazing staff and even more amazing meal!"

  • "went in early (5pm) but by 6:00 place was packed. My family and I enjoyed the good service and food but I felt clearly rushed to finish up - not something one wants to feel like when spending over $300 for dinner -"

  • "We had a fantastic dinner to celebrate my father's birthday. Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious. Capital Grille was very attentive to my son's food allergy needs. He was able to eat everything he wanted and even dessert!!!! We all enjoyed our meals and they even made the table very festive with decorations and a personal note. LOVE capitol Grille"

  • "First time at this chain. Nice setting, valet parking is essential in this busy mall. Reservation was ready on time. Walked to a semi-private room with 4 other tables. Wait staff was attentive without being pushy or overbearing. Salmon appetizer and shrimp cocktail were excellent. Steaks were done to perfection as was the grilled lemon asparagus side. A late delivery on the dessert resumed in a free additional espresso and no charge for the dessert. Mathew was the waiter, a nice touch is a business card from the waiter. The big room is VERY noisy and the bar is hopping and crowded on a Saturday night. Reservation and private room request is recommended. Since Morton's has gone downhill, in my opinion, this is the better choice."

  • "Went here for a business dinner. Despite not having and sparkling water or steak special on the menu, their standard Kona crusted Sirloin was great as always. Decent wine list. Good cocktails at the bar."

  • "Once again, we had a wonderful dinner. We were celebrating our son's birthday. The little touches of confetti on the table, to the complimentary desert and the restaraunt's signature cocktail made us all feel very special! Our server was excellent, also!"

  • "When I ask my brother what he would like for his birthday dinner and he says steak! I look no further than Capital Grille. Always above and beyond service. Porcini rubbed Delmonico steak in 12 year aged balsamic is the way to eat!"

  • "We were celebrating my 14 year old son's Confirmation and had a group of 7 people invited for lunch. We were upgraded to a private room, the table had confetti on it, and when it came time for dessert--his had a commemoration written in chocolate on the plate. It made a special day more special--many thanks! Our server was great and the food was delicious."

  • "I had been to Capital Grille once prior with a buddy and I forgot how amazing the service was. Your glass is never empty and you never find yourself trying to get your server's attention for something. Highly recommended for a special occasion"

  • "The Capital Grille may be owned by the Darden Restaurants Group (Red Lobster, Longhorn Steakhouse, Olive Garden) but it has its own identity. Although you can still see that your wait staff are thoroughly trained to perform the company line, they do it with aplomb. The place certainly looks like an old timey steak house with all the rough edges discretely removed a la Disney. It isn't Peter Luger's but many people would fail to appreciate Luger's anyway. I prefer to get the rib steak when I am there. It is perfectly prepared and perfectly presented and one great steak! Drinks require a designated driver.The layout allows for small dining areas where couples and larger groups can achieve a certain degree of 'privacy'. The place is a winner."

  • "I went to this restaurant for my birthday with my boyfriend and my 2 kids. Service was very good, waiter was nice and courteous. It was a little bit noisy, I would preferred more quite place. Food was delicious, but I am not sure if I will go there again. Too expensive... Otherwise, it was a very good experience. I recommend to go."

  • "The Capital Grille was a favorite for nearly a decade but my last three consecutive dining experiences at the Paramus NJ location has been unacceptable."

  • "My husband and I recently dined here and it was, hands down, the BEST experience we have had. Although this was not our first time dining here, it had been quite a while and we had forgotten how special this place was! From the moment you walk in the door, you are taken care of, by name.....where else does that happen?? The food is expertly prepared and everything was perfect! Our server could not have been more attentive (without hovering, which I hate). They know how to run an upscale restaurant without being "snooty". Many upscale places make you feel inferior.....not here. While this restaurant is expensive, it is well worth it. If you are looking to celebrate a special occasion and want to splurge....I cannot think of a better place!"

  • "Excellent food, extensive wine list and impeccable service. The atmosphere is unpretentious, friendly yet classy. We were pampered throughout our dining experience. A must, for those of us living in Rockland County who desire the feel of a highly acclaimed New York restaurant."

  • "My husband and I celebrated Valentine's Day with a special dinner at the Capital Grille. It was our first time there, and we were blown away by the gracious service, attention to detail and perfectly executed, classic steak house fare. My porcini rubbed Delmonico steak with aged balsamic was the best steak I've ever had. It was a nice, pink-in-the-middle medium rare, with a beautiful crust on the outside. The marbled, bone-in steak was full of flavor and so tender it melted in my mouth. My husband's surf and turf with tenderloin and lobster tail was delicious and perfectly cooked as well, but nothing out of the ordinary. Next time he says he will have the Delmonico, too! Creamed spinach was also a stand-out with a touch of nutmeg."

  • "The only thing that outpaced the quality and taste of the food was the service. From the minute we walked in, we were treated as first class. Even though the restaurant was serving many patrons on a busy weeknight, the attention to detail seemed to be personalized to make our experience the best possible. Food portion were great, wine selection was top notch. Be prepared to spend when you done here, but worth it. As I paid for dinner, I mistakenly left my credit card, within minutes of leaving (literally made it out if he parking lot) I received a call telling me I had left my card and they would secure it in the safe or hold for pickup. That's service! Looking forward to the next time, top rated!!"

  • "Overall the restaurant was great. I did have a problem with my main course. I ordered the tuna and it came out ice cold. I had yo send it back 2 times. The 3rd time it was warm but over cooked. The apps and desserts were very good though."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Quality of service is not the same at lunch time...food seems to be a little more rushed. Food quality still strong, but you can tell that the wait staff and cooks are rushing the meal given the lack of people in the restaurant."
