    I was very happy with open table. No problems obtaining a reservation. However, at Capital Grille they now use iPads to choose wine and dessert. Did NOT like that at all. We had four people in our group and if there was a bigger group, how many people had to surf that iPad to see what the wine/dessert menu was. Not a good idea. Object is to leave the computers off or home to enjoy the company of your dining companions. Probably ok for business meetings but not for us. Trish

    A very busy restaurant like any other Capital Grille. Good to excellent service. Our waiter was very attentive. But... Poor food for Capital Grille. We've been to 4-5 other locations. 1. Onion soups were unacceptably salty. Literally no different from soy sauce. 2. Seafood appetizers were good but could be freshier and better. 3. Too much dressing on our salad. Again, too salty and sweet. 4. Steaks... Tenderloin was very good. Sirloin was absolutely too dry and hard, far from good. Kona crusted sirloin was ok but a bit in chewy side. Guess the problem is their sirloin beef, not cooking. 5. Very good wine selection. I loved their interactive, tablet wine list. 6. Good desserts.

    Food and service were fine, but on a very stormy evening, all the parking spaces were reserved for valet. Yes, I know it is complimentary (although one should tip), but a lot of people do not like to leave their car with a valet. The spaces are not that far from the door, do I don't see why valet is needed. I think lunch is a better experience/value, and no valet.

    My husband finally convinced me to bring my son with us to The Capital Grille. I was worried about finding something on the menu that my son would like and even searched the Internet for a kids menu, but didn't have any luck. However, to my surprise, they had a special kids menu when we got there. In addition to steak they also had grilled cheese, mac and cheese and cheeseburgers on their kids menu. My son loved it and so did we!

    Great dinner with customers, service was excellent. Service was very responsive without being overly intrusive, waiters were very knowledgeable and made great suggestions. The Kona steak was the highlight of the evening, its a must try. Apps, salads, soups and steaks were all excellent and prepared as requested.

    We go to the Capital Grille for special occasions, and it is always great! It is always worth the money, and we have never been dissatisfied or disappointed. My wife loves the filet mignon, so flavorful, melt in your mouth tender, and never the least bit bitter or gamy. My favorite is the sirloin, so delicious and tender. One of the best sirloins you can buy. The service is consistently great and you are always made to feel special. We have been to other high end steak houses in New York city, Boston, and Tampa, and Capital Grille is as good if not better than all of them.

    We went to celebrate both a birthday and an anniversary. I had included that in the reservation. The table was decorated and there were cards for both events. The servers was cheerful and didn't rush us. The steaks were excellent and perfectly cooked. The side dishes and desserts were also great.

    I had made a reservation via OpenTable, but because it was for a birthday (mine), my wife managed to wrangle more details behind the scenes directly with the restaurant (so I wouldn't know about it), and the staff was incredibly gracious and accommodating. They set up and decorated a lovely table for our party, and treated us as well or better than I have experienced in the 3 dozen times I have been to other Capital Grilles across the country. Everything was superb. The food (of course), the ambiance, and truly outstanding service. They were gracious, friendly, and must have thanked us a dozen times for choosing to dine with them. I can't recommend this location highly enough.

    I mentioned that my husband had a very special event we were honoring, and I noted on the reservation that I'd like something special to happen. Well, the management and our wonderful waiter went over and beyond in recognizing what I was attempting to make happen. A+++++ to our waiter, Frank Sullivan, who recognized the event's importance, made fine suggestions for menu and wine, was friendly without being obtrusive. And A+ to the restaurant's excellence both in dining and hospitality. We had a memorable evening. Thank you!!!

    We normally love the Capital Grille for all it has to offer in a convenient location to where we live. We had a nice table and were looking forward to a great evening. That being said one of our guests asked for a baked potato with his steak and the server said, "Oh, we've run out. We only had five baked potatoes and they are all gone."; mind you it was about 7:45! We all thought that was strange and even if it were true the waiter should have just kept that to herself. My husband wanted a glass of cabernet sauvignon and the one he asked for, she bluntly told him, "That's the only one we don't have and in fact we've been waiting four days for the shipment to come in." Overall, a great night but not the usual pristine service.

    Went to the capital Grille to celebrate an anniversary. The staff was exceptional,making our dining experience feel special just for us. The steaks were absolutely delicious and cooked perfectly and served hot. They brought over a complimentary dessert platter with cheese cake and flour less chocolate cake. It really topped off the whole dining experience. Whenever we crave steaks, we don't go any where else but the Capitol Grille. Yummy!!

    We had a wonderful lunch experience yesterday at the Capital Grille because of a very professional waiter named Victor who seemed to read our minds. He managed to appear exactly when we needed him without ever hovering. The lobster roll was delicious with the most lobster in it that I have ever had anywhere. We had requested a booth on Open Table and were given a lovely quiet booth. We were very impressed with the drinks, the food, and the service and we are looking forward to a return visit.

    We went to the capital grille to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary. What a surprise it was when we arrived at our table and it had rose petals spread on it with an anniversary card. After our meal, we were surprised with two champagne flutes and a beautiful tray with two desserts on it and to top it all off we got a complimentary photo taken that we could take home. Thanks Capital Grille for making our celebration special!

    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.
