    Was really looking forward to stellar service but everything was rushed and then we had to ask for water several times, ashes got lines a few times and never got them, and finally when it came time for our bill, we had to wait once again. It was not a busy night. We are usually pleased with the food but my sea bass was over cooked. First time at this location. We usually get much better service abs quality of food at other locations.

    The food, service, and atmosphere was wonderful. We both had the tenderloin and lobster, which was cooked to perfection. It was our 38th wedding anniversary, and you know after 38 years together not much surprises you, but we were surprised at how good this restaurant is ! The staff and waiter were fantastic, and service was impeccable !

    Had a 7pm reservation for Saturday, showed up at 630 to a busy restaurant! We sat at the bar for a cocktail, and am almost sure the host stand forgot about us, even after checking in TWICE with two separate hosts. We decided to dine at the bar because it was now 730, and were still waiting for a table. We were celebrating our anniversary, and really did not want to sit there, but we were just so hungry! Alex and Brad took care of us. It was like an orchestrated symphony those two displayed!! Upon learning about our table and anniversary, Alex and Brad gave us free champagne and dessert! Even a picture! Better than a table, couldn't have asked for a better evening. Thank you Brad and Alex.

    We had a wonderful lunch at the Capital Grill. The Lunch menu specials for $18 are a real treat. Nice selection of wines by the glass to compliment. Very professional hostess and wait staff makes for a completely enjoyable experience...Then you can shop at the outlet mall right behind the restaurant. What could be better! Oh yes, parking is free at the restaurant too! Valet if you need it.

    The service was very professional and fast. We had a seafood platter that was very good. French Onion soup was horrible in a small cup flavor was not good and presentation was sad. $10 should be a crock pot. Sent Back Salad very salty and average Steak over seasoned and very salty Asperagus salty and not very good Mushrooms not good at all. This was a disappointment and very expensive I will not go back again.

    The food was quite good, but the best part was the service. Bonnie is a real pro and made the evening enjoyable even though there was a noisy group seated right next to us. Why people feel they have to laugh loudly in a restaurant defeats me, but it is hard on the neighbors.

    I am exceedingly impressed with the service every time. My husband and I are steakhouse people and in Chicago, you have fantastic options. The Capital Grille distinguishes itself through personalized attention and wonderful food. Try the kona rub with shallot butter on a filet. Not on the menu (this finish along with this protein), but they are delighted to accommodate. It is perhaps my favorite steak of all time. The delmonico is also a steak to be celebrated--our large table had much praise for it, as the balsamic gives a flavorful take on a reliable cut. The cheesecake, with what I can only call a "creme brulee treatment," is worth the calories several times over. Have it. You will not be disappointed!

    My husband and I had a great time at The Capital Grille in Rosemont. We went there for the 1st time to celebrate our 12th anniversary. I mentioned that it was our anniversary in the reservation. When we were seated, there was a card & rose petals on the table. They also treated us to champagne, dessert and a photo of us at the end of the evening. Our waitress was very friendly & attentive. We ordered calamari for our appetizer, which was excellent. It was a bit spicy, but we loved it. Our waitress was kind enough to give us a card for a free order of calamari the next time we dine at The Capital Grill. We will definitely be back because the food, ambiance and service were stellar! Thank you, Capital Grille for a wonderful evening!

    The food was excellent. I ordered the special Bone in filet with shrimp on top. The only draw back, the waiter should have advised the shrimp was an additional cost, also would have been nice to have the price provided when the special was read to us, it was extremely pricey. Ordered a side of Truffle fries which were outstanding and big enough for 2. I would definitely recommend this restaurant but if the waiter does not provide the cost of the special be sure to ask.

    I wanted to take my boyfriend there for his birthday because he loves a great steak. I made the reservation and noted we were celebrating a birthday. When we arrived the table was set with confetti and a happy birthday card. After a fantastic meal where everything was absolutely perfect, they brought a dessert plate out that had happy birthday stenciled in cocoa. They took a picture of our special celebration and gave it to us as we left. Perfection. The food, the staff and the service.. Thank you for a job well done!

    Picked the Capital Grille at Rosemont since we were meeting a friend in town on her way to Arlington Heights. And she love Capital Grille. Even though it was Father's Day, I felt the service was far from top-notch. Our server wasn't as attentive as he could have been although he did replace our lobster mac n' cheese that lacked of lobster. I felt he had an attitude and then there were several other servers who ended up bringing us the things we asked for. The food was just okay. We all had chopped salad with shrimp and salmon. I've had better salads at other restaurants. The bar service was great...and the bartender really helped us select a wine. She was great! Not sure I'll be back to this location.

    Capital Grilles are consistent, and staying at the Intercontinental Rosemont this location couldn't have been more convenient. Much more accommodating, quieter and more breathing room than Gibson's up the road -- giving them some serious competition. At Gibson's you can't get a table until your entire party is there. At Capital Grille, no problem, plus we had a late arriving addition and that was no problem, either.

    We love our local Capital Grille, but this one could put you off the chain for good. Darden Restaurants should be ashamed of this place. The steaks were excellent as expected. However, we were seated in what felt like worn out airline seats, our server was more interested in gazing at the other patrons around the room than in attending to our meal, and I actually got out my phone to call the manager to have someone pick up our check with innumerable wait staff members milling around the kitchen doing nothing. Bad facilities and a bad staff. We'll try Gibson's next time.

    This was one of the best meals we have ever had. Two of us had the filet mignon, it was cooked perfectly. One of the people had the filet with the bone in it and it was rare instead of medium. The appetizers were great. The sides were just enough for the three of us. Great service. The only thing is was a little warm in the restaurant. I don't think they knew they were going to be that busy on a Tuesday night and the weather turned WARM. I think the food and service is better the Gibson's, Ditkta's or Mortons.

    Capital Grille is great for a business lunch, especially when a candid discussion is on the agenda. The tables are well spaced, noise levels are low and the service is almost invariably attentive without being intrusive. Among my top three in the O'Hare area (Gibson's, Capital Grille, Rosewood), this is the place I'd go if I wanted to impress my guests and conduct a serious conversation.
