    My boyfriend and I hadn't gone out for a romantic dinner in a while and we saw that Capital Grille was participating in restaurant week so we booked a reservation. The food and service was outstanding, we would go back again anytime.

  • Restaurant Week at Capital Grille
    AndreiaVIP
    Dined on 8/29/2014
    Was at the Chestnut location to celebrate my dad's birthday. Didn't realize it was restaurant week so it was crowded and busy. Service was good but not at the level we got at the Burlington location. I also prefer the décor and openness of the floor plan at Burlington. Overall it was good because we got the benefit of the prix fixe dinner menu and you can't beat a Capital Grille dinner for $38 per person that includes an appetizer, entrée and dessert. We definitely lucked out, but will be heading back to Burlington or at minimum trying out the Boston location next.

    We went during Dine-Out Boston. The Captial Grille is a great value for us. We get the filet mignon and they were both prepared exactly as we requested (medium for my wife; medium rare for me). The sides of the sizes were what we wanted - and we were pleased to find out we can get that same size during non-Dine-Out Boston times. Our server, Jill, was wonderful - professional, knowledgeable, responsive (removing empty glasses and plates), and friendly. We will be back.

    Cruising down route 9 craving for a Burger par excellence, we saw the Capital Grill sign and pulled right in. We are addicts, 4 combined Business and pleasure lunches in about 10 days at this location ! You can not go wrong here, this is a place that will spoil you. Our server Denise treated us like celebrities, we only wish all of our Open Table restaurants would make us feel this way with unparalleled service!

    We always celebrate special occasions at Capital Grille. The steaks are perfect and the fish is prepared so well. This visit was for restaurant week and we were not disappointed. Everyone took as much care with the customers during this time as usual! We were warmly greeted by the hostess and when our requested waiter, Joe, saw us, he came over immediately. While dining the manager, William, came to the table to make sure everything was fine. The meal was delicious and the service excellent. We love going to a restaurant that adds a personal touch!

    We arrived early for our reservation, but were graciously seated within a short period of time. Hostess was very friendly and pleasant. Waitress was a bit on the spacey side, but gave good service. Food was absolutely delightful. All four of us were amazed our steaks were cooked exactly to our preferences, which were all different. We had a very nice booth and the ambiance was perfect. The only negative was the martinis were a bit costly for the amount of liquid in the glass. There should have been a little more in the shaker for $13/drink. However, the drinks were well made. Overall, great experience.

    We meet every month and since it was restaurant week, we thought we would give the Capital Grill a try. We started with 2 caesar salads, 1 clam chowder and a mixed green salad. Two of us had the filet mignon from the menu, it was cooked to perfection. The other two ladies had the salmon and stated it was wonderful with the citrus glaze. Our sides were Sam's mashed potatoes and green beans with dessert the flour-less chocolate cake and cheese cake ( 2 orders of each). Everything was delicious and our server was wonderful. We will definitely come back.

    We tried the restaurant week menu. The salad was plain. The clam chowder was excellent and the salmon was tasty but 1/3 the size of the salmon on the menu. The green beans could have come from a package. The cheeseburger was large but not special in any way. The service was slow.

    The food was very good (caesar salad, tournedos, creme brule cheesecake, proscecco) but I got a hair in my salad which obviously was disgusting (reason for 2 stars for food). It was taken away very quickly by a random waiter but I don't think he told anyone because I had to ask a busser and my waiter to leave my salad fork, which they wanted to remove for my entree. Once I explained the situation to my waiter, he left my fork alone and did get me another salad which I checked thoroughly.

    We went for Restaurant Week and enjoyed the food as always. We did the Generous Pour as well. The server mixed up our wine choices a few times. This meant we didn't have the wines we wanted at the correct times during the meal. It was a little annoying. Overall though we enjoyed the meal.

    We were very disappointed. Although we went on restaurant week, we still expected good service and food. Two of the 3 steaks were overcooked. Our waiter never came over to check how our food was, and failed to deliver the sides that we ordered. I had to ask for them.

    I was amazed that my guests and I were sitting for 10 minutes without anyone approaching the table. The thing that bothered me about it was how many other waiters and staff walked by the table and could see that we had no water and no bread, no nothing. They kept walking by. Finally, a team member brough bread and water. I asked one of the other waiters for our server. When she finally arrived, she was great. But, her team did not support her. They did treat us to desert which was pleasant. For the prices being charged, everyone there should get superb service. Food quality is good, but for the prices, the side portions should be larger.

    We enjoyed dinner with friends. We were welcomed and seated immediately while we waited for another couple to join us. Service was attentive. The food was excellent. One person had allergies and every effort was made - and did - accommodate them in a low key attentive and caring manner. Will return. A very special restaurant.

    I cannot normally afford such excellent dining experiences as the Capital Grille. With a friend in town, I decided given our awful schedules, we needed something decadent for dinner. Restaurant week and the Capital Grille are a flawless combination. We each had the dry rubbed bone-in 14 oz sirloin and chowder, and split the sides of mashed potatoes and green beans with shallots and tomatoes. The steaks, very simply, were cooked perfectly with a lovely pink color, excellent moisture and texture, and just wonderful flavor -- and of course cut effortlessly. The chowder and sides were also expertly prepared, and the flourless chocolate expresso cake was the perfect endcap. Can't eat like that all the time, but when you can, you must :)

    our waiter hovered over us at the end of the meal. I got the sense that he was concerned that we were not going to pay the bill. Or maybe he was concerned about the tip. Shouldn't the bill be packed up after or at the time that we are leaving the restaurant? The experience definitely a turn off. I also felt rushed during the meal and he knocked over the lamp during our meal. Meal was not nearly as good as past visits Overall a C- dining experience.

    I went there to celebrate my birthday and the service was outstanding. the restaurant was very busy do to restaurant week so the reservations were behind a bit. They did have a great idea to serve free champagne while we all waited. if there was anything we were unhappy about they certainly made up for it. The noise level is quite high in this particular location but it is warm and comfortable and the staff was patient, kind and very professional.

    We celebrated our anniversary at Capital Grille in Chestnut Hill on August 17th. From the minute we arrived at the restaurant we were made to feel special. The staff was very attentive, the food outstanding and the portions plentiful. Although it was restaurant week, the portions were good size and the value for the price charged was very fair. We frequent this restaurant often and will be returning soon.

    Capital Grill used to be a special place---not true on restaurant week. The service was poor and took us over two hours to eat our meal because the service was so slow. The salads tasted like they were made a few days ago---with wilted lettuce and very small portions. The steaks were okay, not as good as they usually were. We ended up taking some of our food home and the waiter forgot to give us the leftover steak. Overall a very disappointing night.

    As we sat down we found our table was decorated with rose petals and hearts. Also, we enjoyed a best wishes card from the staff with an additional treat inside for the next time we visit. Tracey, our server, was helpful and delightful. The food, as usual, was outstanding and the menu offered for Dining Out week was extraordinary. The finale of the evening was a beautifully decorated plate with Happy Anniversary inscribed in chocolate and two delicious desserts with fruit on either side decorated with candles. In addition, the photo taken of us is a lovely keepsake. Thanks to all for a special evening, in deed!

    I'm not a big fan of Restaurant Week as restaurants are always packed and it's typically a bit chaotic. Went to Capital Grille not knowing it started tonight. I have to say, while it was packed, they handled the crowd extremely well. The "deal" was too good to pass up so we opted for the RW menu. Everything was excellent, salads, clam chowder, filet, bone-in NY, sides, dessert... and our waiter, Mohammed was a pleasure... a real pro. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    Although I have dined at this Capital Grille on several previous occasions, this last visit was above and beyond the high standards I had already come to expect. Its hard to keep raising the bar, but Capital Grille in Chestnut Hill continues to do it. Food was awesome, the appetizers, salad, steaks, sides and deserts were all amazing. The service, was FIRST CLASS all the way. The waiter(s), There are several, all very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Also, we were visited by the Manager several times to check in and make sure we were doing well. Not overbearing at all, and was very nice attention to detail. HIGHLY RECOMMEND for anyone that wants a special night out. Its not cheap, but its totally worth every penny !
