    My girlfriends parents as well as her sister were in town from Japan and wanted an to go to a restaurant like none other. Thank you for making it such a memorable experience! We certainly loved every minute of our two hour dining session from the moment we were greeted when coming in the door to the moment we left! Hands down truly the best place in Boston to dine at!

    Changed reservation with the hostess, actually called about it twice. She never changed it and left it at the original time. And then when I called to find out what happened.....she pretended to not know who made the error when it was clearly HER. Make sure to get names when you make reservations there.

The white table cloth was sprinkled with red rose petals and heart confetti! They brought us complimentary champagne and desserts! It was amazing! The food delicious and service top notch!

    The service was impeccable from the Valet to the waiter. Very pleasant, the server, can't recall his name was friendly, informative and honest. The wine list was fantastic. Everything from the appetizer to the desert was spot on. Service was on time. Expected it to be more pricier but I thought the prices were reasonable. Will definitely go back soon.

    I booked through trip advisor using open table reservation and asked for a quiet dinning place and got it in the side room we were very pleased and had a great meal, the noise in the main grill room was immense and would not have been acceptable on this date but it barely intruded on our seating area. Brilliant steaks but found the Fries with parmesan/Truffle a bit overpowering, stunning wine list and i found the prices pretty good value. Adam Barbosa our waiter deserves special mention ,his service was the best i have ever received in the USA, he is an absolute role model and many could learn from him. I will be back !!!

    My boyfriend and I came here for a special occasion, and let me just say we were not let down. The food was absolutely impeccable - pricey, but that's to be expected at one of Boston's most notable fine dining restaurants. Though we were also two of the youngest guests on the scene, our server was very hospitable and made us feel very welcome in the dimly lit, romantic back dining room. Would most definitely come here again for another special occasion date.

    Steak, atmosphere and location simply the best in Boston! I have been using this restaurant for my VIP customer dining for the last three months. Common reaction from my customers - best wine and steak they have experienced in USA. BTW, the service is second to none. I am looking forward to go back there again soon!

    We went for our anniversary, usually go to Burlington but had bad experience our last time there so decided to try Boston, and will come back here every time now based on such a wonderful experience. I had requested a booth and informed the restaurant it was our anniversary when making the reservation. They had a booth waiting with rose petals on the table, a card signed by the staff and champagne toast. On a previous visit to Burlington I had made the same note in our reservation and no accommodations were made for us. The service and food were great, as usual from the Capital and they also brought out complimentary dessert with Happy Anniversary stenciled on the plate which was a nice touch.

    Service here was excellent and there were wines available that did not break the bank. However when all is said and done, for me a steak is a steak is a steak and while I know the steaks here are top-grade and the prices probably not out of line for contemporary top of the line steak houses, I found that the meal - the bill for which included one of those moderately priced wines, a single pre-dinner drink and tip amounted to close to $300 - was not interesting enough for me to plan on a return visit in the near future.

    We ate at Capital Grille for the first time. We are from a major southeastern tourist city, so we have been accustomed to great food. The wine list was exceptional, both in breadth but also fairly priced. One of a few restaurants using IPads for tasting notes and a nice option to email the notes to yourself. The steaks were very good, but lacked heavy Midwestern beef flavor. The Delmonico encrusted with porcini mushrooms and glazed with balsamic was unique, but the balsamic overpowered the beef. Ask for the room in back for a much quieter, intimate experience if that's what you are after. The main dining room is much more "lively." The desserts were excellent. Overall a very good experience.

    The food was to die for! If you love steak, this is your place. There is no "type" of patron at this establishment; some are dressed in t shirts and shorts, while others are dressed in suits and ties. I thought the restaurant would have more of a "romantic" feel, but it felt more like a bar with the loud talking.

    I brought my wife here for her birthday while visiting Boston and had a wonderful experience. They had her table decorated and a signed card from the staff to start off the evening. This was followed by excellent appetizers (Lobster/Crab Cake), steaks and lobster, a few sides (half orders) and a birthday dessert sampler. The cheesecake was out of sight on the sampler so we ordered a full order..yum! Great atmosphere, service and all around experience!
