    Four of us went on a Friday evening at the end of Restaurant Week. It was busy but we were seated and served promptly. Food was really good. Fantastic steaks. Even better were the 2 veg sides: mashed potatoes & green beans. We had the cheesecake & the flourless chocolate cake. Great. The people next to us ordered off the regular menu. Their salads & desserts were huge! Ours were just the right size and as it is, we still brought home a doggie bag.

    The overall experience was excellent! My filet mignon was good but could be way better especially for their reputation when it comes to steak. It was a bit dry but still soft. I hope in the near future they'd be able to serve some warm bread to people with a gluten allergy, however, they have a good GF variety.

    Paid waaay too much money for a medium rare steak that was RARE in the middle and Well done/dry on the outside. While the food was good/ok, I certainly expect far better for the price point. pretty disappointed. won't be coming back.

    The whole experience was amazing. The only thing that could have been better was the speed of service. It took 45 minutes after sitting down for them to take our drink order then another 45 to take our food order. It was worth the wait. The restaurant week menu and generous pour wine deal were more than generous portions. My group really enjoyed the experience.

    Our Capital Grille experience was extremely positive on August 27, 2014. I emailed we would be celebrating my husband Joe’s 65th birthday. We sat at the Bar while we waited for our two children to arrive. Drinks were flavorful. The Bartenders were friendly. Our son was late arriving. Nevertheless, our table was waiting for us when he arrived. Once in the dining room we sat at a booth with a Happy Birthday card waiting for my husband. Angelina delivered a surprise Champagne toast. The food entries served were excellent. Angelina’s service was excellent throughout the evening. We enjoyed our overall experience at the Capitol Grille. We will request Angelina when we return.

    The food was Fantastic, I had the Filet and it was cooked perfectly and practically melted in my mouth. Our server Chris W., was attentive and very knowledgeable. I mentioned that it was my boyfriends birthday when I made the reservation and the staff decorated the table and had everyone sign a card wishing him a Happy Birthday. It was a small touch that really made us feel special. I highly recommend.

    The one thing with the Capital Grille is you know you are going to get great food. Our food was very good. Bone-in Kona Sirloin is a killer choice. Our services was great up until our waiter had a few more tables. The buswoman failed to clear plates on time as well as plates at nearby tables. Not a big deal, but did not make the experience as good as it could have. It would not deter us from heading back. Hard to beat the food and we know there is a great chance our service is top notch the next time.

    Having dined at many Capital Grille locations, I was expecting a superior level of customer service and a great culinary experience. This was the first time I have ordered from the Restaurant Week menu. Once our order was placed, the level of attention from our server dropped dramatically. We had to flag down other servers for nearly every request. When our server did stop at our table, she was very bisque. The highlight was when she cleared by boyfriend's entree while he was still chewing. Our check was dropped on our table a few minutes after dessert had been served. The food was on par with Capital Grille's standard, but the service left a lot to be desired.

  • Loud, decent food, not a good value

    Dined on 8/22/2014
    The food was your average decent steakhouse food - good but not amazing. The music was too loud causing people to talk louder. Also it's an open kitchen so there's clanking there, too - especially bad if you get seated in the seats that are right next to the kitchen. There are no seats with a good view because the restaurant's inside is very basic (nothing special) and right off the street with no surrounding views. Value for your buck is low because the food is only good -- not awesome, and the ambience is not as good as other $$$$ restaurants.

    Went as part of dining out week. The special menu selections were varied with great choices. Three in our party had steak which was excellent as were the sides and desserts. BUT they offered chicken as a choice. Was very over cooked and so dry that it was not eaten. Asked for some type of sauce. When the sauce didn't help she explained her disappointment to the waiter (who was very good and professional) who sent the manager over. Manager quickly apologed, stated he was having a problem with the chicken dishes. It was very dry when he ate it. He then offered dessert drinks. If he knew it was dry why serve it. Expect more from Capital Grill .I would have comped the uneaten dinner or offered to bring something else out to eat?

  • Best Steak in Boston
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011VIP
    Dined on 8/21/2014
    The Capital Grille consistently impresses, and in my opinion offers the best steak of any Boston steakhouse. My friends and I dined here for Dine Out Boston this year - what a delicious meal for a terrific price. I ordered the 8 oz. filet in the signature kona krust, which was cooked to perfection. Everyone ordered a different cut of steak and all were equally impressed. The salads, sides, and desserts were all great too, though the steak was the star of the night. Can't wait for a reason to go back to the Capital Grille.

    We love The Capital Grille. However, this was by far one of the best dinner experiences we have ever had - anywhere! From the moment we checked in and until we walked out we were treated incredibly well. The white napkins were silently switched with black ones to match our clothing, which I really appreciate. Our server, Adnan was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. We chose to order from the Restaurant Week menu and were not disappointed. As well we ordered The Generous Pour wine offerings which added a special element to the meal. We could not have asked for a better evening. Thank you Adnan and Capital Grille.
