  • Clearly a men's lounge feel
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 12/17/2008
    Clearly a men's lounge feel to this restaurant. Not many female patrons during lunch service. My group of 8 were seated in a round table near a high traffic area. This might unearth some parties but we were tolerant of the noise. Fresh ingredients for all salads and succulent dressings were appreciated. Fabulous entrees left no room for dessert. Groups are always made to feel welcome, great wait staff, very attentive. Always a pleasure.

    service was amazing (5 stars), but we have higher expectations for the food given the menu pricepoint...some was terrific, some just good. although the location is great (so don't have to go into the city for fine dining steakhouse), will probably opt to venture into the city next time and dine at another steakhouse.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 12/11/2008
    Food was good--pretty standard for the Capital Grille. We went for a small, corporate lunch. Dining room is loud (open kitchen), but food is consistently good. This is one of the few places that actually still serves steak rare when you order it that way (a big plus for me). If you're looking for something other than steak, this is probably not for you. There are a lot of chain restaurants in Burlington, so a nicer steakhouse that serves lunch is great for this area. Not exceptional or necessarily unique, but overall a good dining experience.

    Beacuse our table was not available when we arrived, the management were very quick to offer complementary drinks to help us wait. The table was avaialable within 15 minutes of our reservation time. Dinner was great, service was excellent. when bill arrived they had also given us our appetizers free because of the delay of our seating! None of this was asked for, we had not commented about the delay, at this time of year it can be expected! Will eat here for any other occasions we can, great great job!

    For what these people do, they do it well. But ..... For our party of two, the pre-tip bill came to $182.00, which included salads, entrees, two sides, and wine (two glasses each). No dessert. I'm happy to pay that much at places like No. 9 Park and Aujourd'hui, but not for steak, no matter how premium the beef, mountainous the portions or sterling the service.

    First class restaurant. Nice to have such a great restaurant embedded in the local community, not having to go downtown to get a quality meal combined with the exceptional customer service and yes parking is free in Burlington. We had reservations and were seated right away and the hostess was very attentive providing us with black linens as we had dark slacks on. Great appetizers that set the stage for even a better main course. The delmonico was absolutely delicious coupled with a very nice Cab/Merlot blend. Great evening!

    I had been to the Capital Grille in Boston, and I still like that one a little bit better - mainly for the ambience of the place rather than any food preference. The food here was great - and the service was extremely well trained. We do save it for special occasions because of the price (for two people who shared and app, had the soup/salad course, and a main, and also had drinks it came to $200).

Every steak was made perfectly and our server was just exceptional - very attentive and prompt w/out being rushed, he gave meaningful opinions on dishes when asked and he was very personable. We also love the table picture! He quickly sensed that my in-laws were visiting and offerred to take a picture, print 2 copies and provide us w/a great souvenir of the night.

The service, and I'd like to sing the praises of Vinny, was impeccable. He is truly one of the best I've seen. I thought this level of service was fantastic. To mark the occasion, he surprised us with a complimentary dessert (which was fabulous) and a photo of us at our dinner--one for each of us to take home. FIRST-CLASS experience from start to finish. Thank you for making the evening memorable.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP
    Dined on 9/20/2008
    We had a lovely time, except for the fact that when I ordered wine, one vintage year was cited in the wine list, but another was delivered to the table, without so much as a mention of the difference. When I pointed out that it was not the wine I ordered, I was then immediately told that the wine list was to be updated soon, and that the year I ordered was no longer available. Frankly, I would expect this low practice from either a restaurant staff member who didn't know better (I would probably excuse this at a less expensive restaurant who didn't hire career servers), or from an establishment that engaged in charlatan practices. I sincerely hope that Capital Grille is neither, and would expect the staff to act accordingly.

My wife and daughter got the filet mignon, and said it was the best they ever had, even compared some well known New York City steak houses. My son got the porter house and loved it but couldn't eat it all even though he is close to 6 feet tall. I got the sirloin and enjoyed it. The sides were delicious as were the deserts. The waiter was excellent.
