    This was our first visit here and we were opened minded. We researched the menu and reviews and made our reservation. It started out a bit poorly, not able to seat us at the reserved time (we were a little early). Of course we could wait in the bar. Was almost 30 min before the hostess asked if we would like a table in the bar. We said no, we had a reservation for the main dining room. About this time another hostess came over and took us to our proper table. We were met by one of the managers who took our bar bill away and apologized profusely about the snafu. He then offered some appetizers on the house in which we indulged and then we met our waiter Brent. The rest of the evening was impeccable. Great service, excellent food. Very nice experience.

    Cannot go wrong with the food or drink selection here. Mostly about the beef of course which is always cooked perfectly. Best for large groups as it gets loud. Not so much a romantic place due to the noise levels. Appreciated the fact the seem to sit couples in a side room away from the noisy bar and maim floor.

    Our server, David, was so attentive, entertaining and gave us great info on the food and wine. Food was amazing!! I would classify this is a special occasion or romantic type restaurant. It's pricey but worth it. The menu is very concise and versatile. All items are Ala cart but the sides are definitely large enough for 2 as stated on the menu.

    We love the Kona rubbed steak. We celebrated a couple of birthdays and they made us feel very special with cards signed by the staff, rose petals on the table and a very special dessert. Also took a photo and presented it to us in a nice folder almost immediately. Awesome service by David.

    We went to the Capital Grille for the first time and were very impressed. The atmosphere and service were the best we've experienced in the last decade or so. We are used to getting great food for a lot of money, but this is the first time in ages where we felt 'pampered'. It was our anniversary and we let them know when we made reservations, so I'm sure that was part of it. Wait staff was excellent, very well-run restaurant. Will definitely remember that night out! Dan was our server, lucky if you get him!

    Sometimes the difference between a good meal and a great meal is the service, and this is the case for my last visit. The food was great but the server seemed to disappear every so often. Hard to fully enjoy a meal when you are looking for your server half the time. (the restaurant was not that busy) May want to consider other options in the area.

    The unfortunate thing about an expensive place where the service isn't good, they don't know. That will never happen at Capital Grille in Lombard. That will never happen with our waiter, Seth. That will never happen with either of them because their staff is very aware of what they're doing. They were terrific because that's what they try to be. Excellent! Hit it out of the park! We will be back.

    Went on a quiet Sunday night with spouse. Sharon at bar was outstanding with wine recommendations and service. Food was fantastic, as I have come to expect at this place. Sergio provided great service to compliment the meal and desert recommendations (hint---try the cheesecake because it is fantastic). They were out of a few items (chocolate cake, etc.) but cheesecake made up for it. Overall you can't go wrong here.

    Best steak I have ever had. The side dishes of lobster mac n cheese and truffle fries are not to be missed. Great wine list. Impeccable service. A little on the noisy side, but it is a steakhouse so this is to be expected. I've been to most of the steakhouses in Chicago, including the CG in the city, and for my money this one is the best.

    We've been coming here for special occasions for several years and it has always been consistently great food and great service. The best lobster bisque we've had anywhere in the country. It's worth every penny you spend. It's the kind of food you savour every bite. The wait staff always go out of their way to make your evening special. We've never been dissappointed.

    My husband and I came to Capital Grille to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it was fantastic! By far, the best part was the service. Our server was incredibly attentive, friendly, knowledgeable, and was so sweet. The food was also amazing. We started with the steak tar tare (outstanding), split the wedge salad, and then I had the gorgonzola and tuffle crusted filet with lobster mac and cheese - all was notable! Thanks Capital Grille for an amazing night!

    Ironically, we enjoyed every part of our meal except the steak. We got a lobster bisque soup and caesar salad, - both were really nice. We also enjoyed the chocolate cake and creme brulee cheesecake a lot. However, the steak au poivre really had way too much peppercorn; and I think I can handle a lot of pepper. We also had the special filet with red wine reduction and blue cheese, and we thought the blue cheese was too dominant. Overall we enjoyed the experience though! The service was top-notch and we had a great time.

    We've heard a lot about how good this restaurant is and have been trying to get there because its not that close to our house. We took our adult children there for a celebration and it was a great choice. Everyone love their meals from steaks, to seabass and halibut. We had a great waiter who was very friendly and attentive. We will definitely be going back because its worth the drive.

    My husband & I celebrated our 24th anniversary at Capital Grille. It was Monday night, restaurant was not full. We shared an appetizer - waiter tried to whisk away the plate before my husband had taken his portion. This over enthusiatic clearing happened throughout the meal - which was distracting. The food was fine...but menu did not include full descriptions. Example - I was expecting Chopped Salad to include blue cheese & found out that it was a VERY different salad. Lobster/Crab cakes were served w/Tartar Sauce - not my favorite & I would have asked for an adjustment. My husband enjoyed his Halibut & we both loved the Asparagus and Flourless Choclate Cake (although they could have been less stingy w/whipped cream.)

    First time dined here and it was a delightful experience. Food was outstanding and the service great. My wife and I shared all dishes with the waiter making the arrangements as if this I'd done all the time. Appetizer of calamari was one of the best I've had, the lobster bisque contained many pieces of lobster, the chopped salad (weakest part of the meal) was nothing special and disappointing, the sliced filet and mushrooms outstanding, and the bread basket simply delicious. Since we were celebrating a birthday, the gratis birthday dessert was well worth the calories to complete the evening. A highly recommended dining experience!

    We sat in the bar area during lunch. It was quiet and comfortable. The service was very good and prompt. The T-Bone steak was amazing; tender with great flavor. I highly recommend the lobster mac & cheese side dish. Truly the best side I've ever had . Great cheese flavor with an abundance of lobster meat. Managed to turn the meal into two with the leftovers. An overall wonderful dining experience.

    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.
