  • "Easter Sunday brunch with party of five was fantastic. Two people had food allergy / concerns and waiter (Brad) was terrific and took special care with them."

  • "Delmonico steak prepared just the way I like it, tender and juicy. All the sides (asparagus, mashed potatoes, sauté spinach, Caesar salad )that I had with it was just superb."

  • "The décor of the Capital Grill is lovely. Our waiter, however, was horrible! We had to wait 30 minutes before our waiter came to take our first drink order and the service the rest of the night was just as slow. It took 3 hours for our small table of 5 to get through dinner. We had to flagged down a different waiter twice and ask them to get our waiter over to the table. The most amazing part was our waiter seemed to have no clue that he was constantly leaving us hanging. Maybe he figured it out when he looked at the less than generous tip that we left. It is a shame that the service is so bad because the food and ambiance are very good. "

  • "Got good ratings on trip advisor, service was outstanding, but the whole reason we went was for a good steak! We both got filets and while the flavor was good we both agreed they'd been cooked to well not medium as we requested. It was so dark we couldn't tell what our steak really looked like on the inside, but I may have had one true medium bite right in the middle. You'd think a steak place would get it right!"

  • "Had the pleasure of dining here with my parents for my birthday celebration this year. Everything about our experience here was amazing including the superior wold-class service our server Khalid provided. Everything was spot on from menu descriptions to suggestions he offered us. I always order steak tartar whenever i see it on a menu and have to say capital's blew me away, very simplistic presentation that allowed the true freshness of the steak shine through. My mom had the filet and the moment she bit in stated this was the standard all other filets shoul live up to an aspire to be. Had to have desert of course, AMAZING chesecake bruleed on top and had the coconut cream pie for the first time SOOO GOOD. Best steakhouse in Boston!!!!!"

  • "My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and had made reservations at 5:15pm. The traffic was bad and we didn't arrive until 5:30. Capitol Grille held our reservation and when we arrived had a table prepared for us with rose peddles and heart confetti (very nice). Zack our server was attentive but not pushy. Capitol Grille treated us to complimentary champagne, a very nice way to start the evening. The food was, as expected, outstanding! We had soup (lobster bisque) and for the main course my wife had the filet and I had the dry aged sirloin, all perfectly prepared. Again Capitol Grille out did themselves and gave us complimentary desert. It was a wonderful evening and the food and service was great. I recommend Capitol Grille anytime"

  • "We stopped here because it was close to the Sheraton. We saw it while visiting Ladder 15 and Engine 33. We were there early in the evening, and had one of the best meals that I have had in Boston to date. A pleasant experience all the way 'round."

  • "I went during restaurant week and had the most delicious steak I've ever had. This place is pricey but the restaurant week options were great. I highly recommend it, just be prepared for the bill."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "It might be because we went there during restaurant week, but the servers were literally throwing stuff on our table without ever making eye contact. The wait to order was 30 min, the meat was dry and chevy, and the cheese cake too sweet and soggy, tasting like some cheap, old tv dinner dessert. Not worth the price."

  • "I was at Capital Grille for Lunch the week before and Dinner last week. The Restaurant week menu is fabulous and the food is very delicious. We had the leftovers the next day and it was just as good as when we were at the restaurant. This is my favorite place. Thank you"

  • ""I loved the energetic ambience by the bar and the relaxed feel of this place where I was seating - I definitely would return to try more dishes. The crab cakes was amazing, The steak was cooked exactly how it was order. Well overall, the entire meal was delicious. The service was outstanding, I even asked the waitress his name so when I go back I can request to be serve by him again."

  • "We went to the capital grille for Restaurant Week. We were seated right at our reservation time. The food was absolutely fantastic! We got the filet mignon and the Kona crusted steak-- delicious. I would expect better service if we were ordering off the regular menu.. It was good but not great. The place was packed and non-restaurant week customers got a different level of service. (ie, we didn't get a bread basket, no black napkins for black pants, no hot towel after the meal). That said, it's still a great experience as the food was fantastic-- some restaurants serve inferior food to restaurant week customers but the Capital Grille does that part right."

  • "We went for a family dinner during restaurant week, and the service was absolutely amazing. My family and I have gone in the past as well, so it was most pleasant to notice that the quality and quantity of the food was not compromised. I am extremely happy with Capital One/"

  • "We went for Restaurant Week, had the 3-course special, and were very pleased with everything except the salad. The steak was perfect, wine menu is excellent, great service and a cool new age american steakhouse ambiance. Again, the steak tasted exceptional and was cooked great. The only reason I took a star off for Food was because of the mediocre salad, which resembled that of a $5 pizzeria and was quite disappointing."

  • "I've been here for both lunch and dinner several times and it's one of the best steak houses in the Boston. The lunch menu provides a good selection and the food is delicious."

  • "This place was great, since the food was cooked perfectly and the service was amazing. I went during restaurant week in Boston and had a three course meal that satisfied the foodie in me. The kona crusted steak was seared just right leaving the the inside medium rare just the way I like it. Even the side dishes of mashed potatoes and haricot verts were surprisingly good. The other two dishes I had were the flourless chocolate espresso cake and the clam chowder, in which both were very enjoyable. I would definitely go here again."

  • "I brought my friend Danny here for a celebratory dinner for graduating from the fire academy. It was his first time. We were seated about 5 minutes after we arrived. First thing I noticed, we were not offered a cocktail or wine list. I'm sure the waiter thought we were underage as we both do look young but that was unprofessional of him to assume so. Dinner was amazing as always. Dessert - I secretly asked that they write "Congratulations" on the dessert plate. It came out better than I pictured. Danny was very surprised and really appreciated the thoughtful gesture. Thanks Capital Grille!"

  • "Capital Grille is a great spot for special occasions or business dinners. The seafood and steak is excellent, the staff is very professional and cheerful, the space is clean and elegant. The prices are high - but that's to be expected of a place so nice in the middle of Back Bay Boston."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "The food was excellent, Our server John was outstanding and the quality is what I expect when going out for Fine Dinning, Restaurant week is an excellent way for the general public to try new places or places that may be otherwise out of budget, also a good way to step out of the box and sample new restuarants. The Capital Grill does an excellent Job durring restauarnt week and they allow up-selling so that you can try some of their higher end signature cuts of steak."

  • "For $38, this year's restaurant week menu selection went above expectations. To start I chose the clam chowder, which upheld Boston's reputation for tasty chowder - although, is argue there is better in town. Went with the 8oz filet mignon for my entree, cooked medium rate plus. Meat was cooked perfectly. The accompaniments, mashed potatoes and asparagus were good but not great. The dessert, the flourless chocolate expresso cake was also near perfection. I've been to the Caiptal Grille in Costa Mesa, California and thought the bread basket there was better with more options than we had at this location. Overall great experience!"
