    I have never been disappointed in a meal, the service, or the atmosphere at The Capital Grille in Burlington. We often go there for special occasions, and when you let the restaurant know this -- either ahead of time or in the midst of the meal -- they give you a wonderful experience and cater to your special requests (this time, I specifically asked for a quieter table to accommodate my elderly mother's hearing loss, and our table was in one of the quieter side rooms). The service was incredible, the food perhaps the best I've had at a restaurant, and overall it was an extraordinary dinner.

    It is always excellent at The Capital Grille in Burlington. When there are mistakes made, they always know how to correct them quickly and will always make the customer happy. The Capital Grille is rather expensive, but the experience is worth it. Not the kind of place you would go to often due to the cost. The 4 of us with tip came to ~$400. The steaks are always perfect as you would expect when paying ~$50 for an entre. A great place for special occasions.

    We had a wonderful time at the Capital Grill in Burlington, MA. Our table was ready as soon as we arrived and it was decorated with birthday confetti, and we were presented with flutes of champagne! Our waiter Frank was excellent, sharing the menu items and the details of the wine pairing event. We choose the steaks and the wine pairing and had lots of have fun tasting the wines! A wonderful un-rushed evening with an excellent server, Frank and the manager Mr. Silvestri stopped by to check in.

    Went for lunch during Restaurant Week. Great pricing for the food. The scallops with corn risotto was outstanding. Asked to be seated in a quiet area, because of my husbands hearing. Seated us in a small comfortable quiet room. Very pleasant. Found the main dining room, very noisy. Not our first visit here. Have been for dinner. Would rather come here to Burlington, rather than Boston or Chestnut Hill.

    Went to the Capital Grille for the first time during DineOut Week Boston.Was set on having the special 3 course lunch, but was impressed by their new "small plates" menu....a great value.Tried the watermelon-feta salad and the sweet summer corn risotto with scallops...dishes I had wanted to try . Absolutely scrumptious! I was also impressed by our waiter Roberto Lopes...one of the finest servers I have ever experienced.He explained the menu completely, asked if we had any time constraints, and inquired if we were celebrating any special occasion. Roberto definitely made the dining experience even more special than it was.Will not take so long to get back to The Capital Grille, especially for lunch.A super experience and a great value!

    The Capital Grille is a destination for special occasions and as usual we found excellent service, excellent food and wine (not to mention the Stoli Doli) and the overall experience was just top notch. No surprises; each time we dine at the Capital Grille, it's been fantastic for steak and seafood.

    definitely a great place to take a significant other. my server, teri, was more than amazing. it was restaurant week when my partner and i visited, and she was very professional but also personable when serving us. she did not treat my partner and i differently due to our younger age compared to the rest of the guests. food was great and presented in an elegant way. definitely a great first time experience here at the burlington location.

    I love this place because i have never gotten bad food. It is always exceptional and cooked exactly as ordered, which is as it should be but is not always the case at other places. I always wait for Dine in or a very special occasion as it is a bit pricey but definately worth the splurge every now and then.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 8/25/2014
    The area we were seated in was EXTREMELY loud with several large party tables and our table for 2 was swallowed up in the noise. I could barely hear myself think let alone talk with my dinner date. The food was absolutely amazing, however the timing of our service was not up to par. We waited 30+ minutes from the time we finished our appetizer until we received our entrees. Also had to wait too long to receive the check after finishing dessert.

    Dined on 8/24/2014
    We had dinner for the fifth year in a row to celebrate our anniversary at the Capital Grille. The food was amazing as always. Unfortunately the service, while far from mediocre, was not the exceptional service we have come to find at this restaurant. Usually the service is extraordinarily attentive and personalized. However, this evening it was less so. Long waits between courses left us wondering what was going on. The waiter cleared the entree plates, never asked us if we wanted coffee, and then disappeared for 15 minutes. It turned out that he was waiting for the dessert to be set up on a special plating for our anniversary but again we had no idea why we did not see him for the 15 minutes.
