    I come to this Capital Grille location often and every year for a group Birthday dinner during Restaurant Week. I made a 7PM reservation and yet waited 45 minutes for our table! Clearly the restaurant was overbooked. In addition our waiter was stingy with "The Generous Pour" wine service. He 1/4 filled our glasses so we had to awkwardly ask for multiple refills. The worst part of the dinner was my steak (which is normally the highlight). I asked for Medium & my friend requested rare. We both got rare steaks! I had to send mine back and when it returned, it was well done and clearly microwaved. Totally inedible! The meal was credited but the manager didn't stop by the table to ask what went wrong.

    Reservations for 12:45 and arrived in the parking lot by 12:35. We circled the parking lot for twenty minutes. There was nothing. However, there were about 25 spots with white cones in them....reserved for valet....This Capital forces their guests to valet whether they want to or not, there's no alternative option. We actually drove up the path and parked in the Seasons 32 parking lot and walked. Had I not made reservations we were ready to just walk into Seasons32 instead. They need to do something about parking and not pressure guests to pay an additional 25$ to park on top of an already very expensive lunch. We were frustrated with the beginning experience but as always, the service and food glossed it over and kept us happy!

    Capital Grille lived up to it's reputation and truly supplied a chance to try their excellent fare at an affordable cost. This was the original aim of Restaurant Week, which had been somewhat lost in recent years as in addition to the loss of participation, most restaurants that were participating used a menu that had nothing to do with the restaurant's strength and was basically designed to convince you to order off their standard menu (or punish you for not having done so). In contrast we found that not only was the food top notch last night, but the Capital Grille's service was welcoming and treated us like VIPs, in contrast to the dismissive attitude we had experienced elsewhere in prior years.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/19/2014
    So much lag time all night. We should have just purchased a bottle of wine. Asked for extra taste of cab to finish with our kona sirloin but she got busy. Gave us a "splash" when we were done eating. Also, not allowed to have Riesling with dessert. We have been here often & I was so disappointed with the service. As soon as anniversary party of 8 showed up we were IGnORed. We couldn't even flag down our waitress. We wanted coffee after dinner but she said "I assume you are all through" and gave us our bill. We typically have pre-cocktails, appetizers, a bottle of wine,dinner, desserts, and coffee but instead we were RUSHED out the door! On a Tuesday! Not the typical service...awful.

    First time I have not given Capital Grille ***** - 5 stars. I know it's restaurant week, but overcooked filet - such a waste! Server got the manager, manager took it back to kitchen, and new filet arrived shortly. Then our bill was incorrect, and the waitress tried to convince me it wasn't her fault. I didn't really care whose fault it was, just fix it. If there is a problem at the table, typically a server will say Oh, I'm sorry, let me fix that. Nobody said that. She was gruff to say the least. Still my favorite restaurant though. Manag

    From the valet parking to the wonderful meal to the fantastic service, our experience at The Capital Grille was top-notch. My husband and I were celebrating my birthday and chose The Capital Grille because it was recommended to us for a special occasion. We were certainly not disappointed. My husband had a swordfish special and I had the Kona-crusted sirloin. The food was wonderful and our waiter, Sergio, made the experience even better. He never hovered, but was always available to make suggestions, answer questions and fill our wine glasses. Although it was our first time at the restaurant, it won't be our last. I can honestly say that this was one of our best dining experiences, ever!

    We were celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary. Our waiter Sergio was knowledgeable, our food was incredible and the restaurant made us really feel special with a card on the table when we sat down, complimentary champagne and dessert, and they took our picture and put it in a nice little keepsake frame for us. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone, especially those celebrating a special occasion.

    My wife and I celebrated our 46th wedding anniversary with dinner at the Capital Grill in Burlington. Everything was fantastic. We were seated at our scheduled time and immediately were served glasses of champagne. Our table was decorated with little red hearts. Roberto, our server was outstanding; there for our every need. He took a picture while we were toasting, and provided us with a framed picture to take home with us. The appetizer, meals, drinks and dessert were perfect as was our server and ambiance. I would recommend the Capital Grill for any special occasion. Be prepared to eat.

    When we made the reservation, I noted it was our anniversary and The Capital Grille took it from there. From the little red confetti hearts on the table, to the greeting card signed by the establishment, to the champagne toast and the anniversary desert, everything they did made us feel special. The food was wonderful and way too much, since we finished our leftovers the next evening. We both had steaks and my dish included lobster tails as well. Both the steaks were cooked perfectly to our specifications. While this was an expensive dinner and for a special occasion, we would come back again. Thanks Capital Grille for making our experience so wonderful.

    I have been to several Capital Grille's before in Boston, Phila etc. But this was truly memorable. Normally it has been a business dinner, but this time on a whim my wife and I decided to go for a dinner on a Friday evening. It was a great experience, the service was exceptional and the food was great. We had the wine tasting menu. It is a great deal. The Pinot was exceptional. The appetizer was decent, but the main course (both steaks) were cooked perfectly.

    We visited on a Sunday evening celebrating the 45th wedding anniversary of the couple that was with us. Capital Grille really went all out and made it a special evening for our guests. Happy Anniversary card on the table, photo taken of the 4 of us, one for each couple, we each got a glass of champagne for a toast and a special dessert for our guests. Food was excellent. Steaks cooked perfectly - best we've had. Service was top notch. Our server didn't miss a beat. My only complaint would be that for such a lovely and high end restaurant, there were too many people coming in wearing shorts and jeans. Kind of spoiled it for those of us that dress appropriately for that kind of a restaurant. All in all a perfect evening. Thank you CG!

    I don't understand how anyone can enjoy a dinner for four when you have to shout to be heard. Multiply that by a couple of hundred diners and you have bedlam. Some regard this as a "party atmosphere".......sure, if you're with a bunch of inebriated golf buddies, but not if you're out for a great meal and good conversation with another couple. I'd go back for lunch or maybe a late dinner when the noise level's down.

    Capital Grille has outstanding food and attentive service but the prices are prohibitive for most people unless it is a special occasion. It was my birthday but I did not so indicate until I arrived in their foyer. Our table very quickly was prepared with a congratulatory notecard and "Happy Birthday" confetti. My companion had a succulent steak but commented that the portions are way too large. He also thought his ceasar salad was overdressed. My salmon served over green beans was superb. The au gratin potatoes were divine; they brought a smaller portion because my companion did not want any but sides are meant to be shared. They brought us a meat appetizer as a birthday recognition, but as I don't eat meat, a dessert was presented later.

At our table, there was a card for him along with a sprkling of glitter across the table. Food as always was wonderful. Service was very attentive with out being intrusive in any way. We went on a Sunday night and the restaurant was quiet which was nice. We have been to the Capital Grille in Burlington many times and have never been disappointed. Excellent from start to finish!

    The steaks here, in my opinion, are better than the competition. They are slightly larger, aged perfectly, and then cooked to perfection. Just the right amount of grill on the outside and a an even cook inside. The appetizers are also better....try the cold shellfish platter. It will feed 2 and it is outstanding. Capital Grille is a steak house that will have you coming back.

    What can I say, the Capital Grille is a very nice restaurant to go to; however, when you add a server like Antonio, it becomes an experience of a lifetime. This man makes you feel like you are the only people in the restauarant (he does this to all of his patrons). Words cannot express what a wonderful person he is.
