    I had the filet mignon and lobster. The filet was done to my perfection and very juicy. The lobster mac and cheese was to die for and had large pieces of lobster meat so you could actually taste it. The 4 of us shared all the sides. It was a bit pricey but well worth it.

    Usually is great. But we were ignored by our waitress and the busboys. Nobody came to our table for 10 minutes. I felt like we were bothering her asking questions about the menu and nobody cleared our dishes, so the table was full of empty plates. We left before the main course. The lobster crab cakes were good, but I can't tell you about much else.

    We celebrated my birthday here. CG does a good job with the little details - ie: staff wishing you HB, birthday card on the table. I was a bit disappointed that they had so many celebratory events over the weekend, they ran out of flower petals for the table Sunday evening. But our waiter never missed a beat - he found an orchid blossom and brought it to me! The food was excellent - steaks cooked perfectly! And the HB dessert was delish. A great way to celebrate.

    I have been to the CG's in Beverly Hills and Costa Mesa. Now living here in Chicago, and I was just as pleased with the Lombard establishment as I have been with the others. We were taken care of very well, the restaurant is elegant as always, although it was too bad there was some construction going on out in front which made the entrance a little ugly. I'm sure once completed every thing will be fine.

    Food was excellent (filet with lobster tails, smoked salmon, halibut, Delmonico steak,etc.). Wine list is also excellent. Server was friendly, informative, and silently attentive. Our only problem was the lighting; it is a bit dark. This would not have been a problem thirty years ago! Of course the low lighting does give the place a nice ambience and is appropriate for dining. It is only our old eyes that are the problem! From start (the very nice man doing the valet parking) to the Hostess and Host, to the end was very good.

    Food was sub-par and waiter not interested, period; except for inflating the bill. He was nowhere, did not advise us of a special menu tasting that our table would have liked. We know that's because the bill would have been less. He promised the caprese salad had heirloom tomatoes. It did NOT (unripe tasteless with only a few good cherry tomatoes); also, the mozzarella was way under par. This was SO not what we've had before at Lombard location that it makes me wonder if it is under new management. Overall quality was not nearly as good as before. Our host mentioned dissatisfaction to the manager on the way out and received only a curt "sorry". We were simply shocked to find Capital Grill has slipped so much!

    After 3 weeks of hospital food, Grille was a real treat! Waiter was pleasant, attentive and responsive to changes needed. Doesn't anyone else order dry Rob Roy? it always takes two tries! Gave us a couple of wines to taste before deciding on a drier red than the first offered. Nicely done! Kona rubbed steak for me, lamb for my bride. Both perfectly prepared. Enough for a fine brunch at home on Sunday, too.

    The restaurant featured exceptional service and food. We went to celebrate an adoption and it was so nice, the waitress was able to inform us of the special occasion upon seating us. It was a four hour dinner and we had several individuals stop by our table to ensure everything was fine. We had constant service until the end, even if it was just refilling our water. I would not hesitate to recommend, but bring your appetite portions are huge.

    Thomas (manager) & Nico went above and beyond! My hub and I love Capital Grille, but reserve for more special nights because it is pricey. The service there is amazing and it really makes you wonder why all restaurants aren't offering this extremely high level of service and level of professionalism in a dining experience. The food was not as good as usual, but I'm addicted to being treated so nicely! We will return!

    This has become our families goto place for birthdays and special events. Super attentive staff. Waiters are all excellent. What can I say about the food? Whether one of the great steaks or any of the seafood, it is prepared to perfection. Wine and cocktails are superb. Oh and if you reserve online, you can have your fav cocktails brought as you sit down. And birthdayers are treated to dessert. Highly recommend.

    Had our daughters birthday dinner there and simply by mentioning it on the memo section on open table capital grille took it upon themselves to put us in a fantastic private room with the table decorated with rose petals as a runner which was an unexpected great touch. The food was top shelf as usual and was cooked perfectly and also as usual plentiful! The wait staff we had was also spot on! Every detail was handled with perfect timing and with some jokes thrown in it made for an absolutely perfect meal. Literally a perfect meal.
