  • One of the best restaurants

    One of the best restaurants we've been to in the Boston area. The food and service were excellent!! The menu is alla carte and very expensive, but worth every cent. You do, in fact, get what you pay for. We will definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and family and fully intend to dine there again.

    Excellent overall. Have dined there twice with different waiter/waitress with consistent results. Dry aged steaks are delicious. Sides were plentiful and well prepared. Wine selection is enormous. Great quality mixed drinks as well. on the high end of price for us, but worth it on occasion.

    The bread was terrific. The daily lunch special I ordered w/o any sides on the plate. When they said Pan Seared Florida Grouper with Crabmeat topping, it was just that on the plate leaving 80% of the plate empty. I woul dhave liked it better had there been at least some steamed vegitables or wilted greens, to fill the plate out and to make the lunch complete.

    This was my second very disappointing meal in a row at Capital Brille Burlington. On both occasions the steaks were overcooked. That is an unforgivable mistake for a steakhouse. I have eaten in other Capital Grille restaurants, as well as many other "high end" steakhouses across the country, and have not had this problem.

The menu offered a wide variety that was exciting but not overwhelming – there’s something for everyone. Our server, Eduardo, took perfect care of us and was an excellent guide on our first (but definitely not last) visit to the restaurant. We can’t wait to go back!

    The server (Antonio) was casual with his service. He never introduced himself. He leaned against the backs of our chairs and looked over our shoulders while making recommendations and waiting for our orders. He handed the appetizers to us instead of placing them in front of us. We frequent Capitol Grille for the food and great service and his less than professional service has somewhat put us off. The food was excellent though.

    Capital Grille was wonderful. We went to dinner with a vegitarian and although they do not have any dishes that are specifically vegitarian (They are a steak house / seafood restaurant) they were able to accomodate our guest. They made a wonderful pasta primavera for him. Great night and another wonderful experience.

    Capital Grille never disappoints if you go for what they excel at, which is good American grille food. I had the lobster, crab burger and it was excellent. I would go back for it again and again. The service is always good and the atmosphere is comfortable and warm. This was our first visit to the Burlington location and will definitely return.

    It was our first trip to Capital Grille and my husband and I (and our adult son) were very impressed with the quality of the food and the attentive service. Our dinners were perfect and the recommendations of our waiter proved more-than-accurate. We especially enjoyed the seafood appetizer, which included lobster, raw clams and oysters and shrimp. Very fresh, tasty and well-presented! We made the reservation because we had received a gift certificate. We plan to return very soon. Thanks, Capital Grille!

    Excellent quality of food. Excellent quality of service. However, 3 filet mignons - ALL ordered medium - the 10 oz one was over-done; the 14 oz ones were too raw - had to be sent back. Told them exactly 1 minute! They cooked it longer, and they too were over-done. Waiter was very gracious - price of filet mignon was credited. This was 7th time there since they opened last year. Last May the filet mignons were ALL PERFECT - getting less reliable since. (Each previous time, the asparagus was perfectly cooked - hot, crispy and bright green. This time, the asparagus was hot, but not crispy and no longer bright green - overcooked.)
