    Tucked into a little corner of Rosemont, the Capital Grille is a gem of a setting for special events. We celebrated a 75th birthday and closed the place an hour (I'm told) past closing. The ambiance and presentation of the food is outstanding. A terrific wine list and imaginative special suggestions that are not on the menu. I've been here three times, all special occasions and will continue to make it my "hot spot" for a memorable evening with friends.

    We heve been to many Capital Grille, our favorites in Miami and Fort Lauderdale and is one of our favorite restaurants since we always get excellent service, superb quality steaks and an overall fine dining experience, so when visiting Chicago we thought this was a sure bet. Unfortunately that was not the case in Rosemont IL. The waitress was mediocre compared to any other waiters of this chain, but the meal was what was really disappointing. Starting with the bread, we got small bread pieces that were literally burned. The asparagus were spaghetti thin and overcooked, but worst of all was the Delmonico steak, a thin cut of meat with no flavor at all. Very uncharacteristic of this chain. A complete disappointment.

    To celebrate my 65th birthday, we had a reservation- party of 6 at 645. After a bit of a delay in seating our party, everything was WONDERFUL. The service was 'over the top' and the food was - well, it was on of the best steaks (I went with the bone in Filet) I've had in a long, long time. We requested and got a round table in an area where we could converse easily, and they delivered. Dinner service was a very comfortable pace, and everyone we encountered was friendly. While a bit pricey, I would definitely recommend Capital Grill, Rosemont. Great Food, Great Service. Great evening.

    The steak (we ordered a porterhouse and a sirloin) were cooked perfectly. Very rarely can you order a rare steak and get a RARE steak. I had the caprese salad which was wonderful. The mozzarella was a bit tough though. However, all sides are extra and though they say "family size", it's really one generous portion. So unfortunately, the bill ads up very quickly. Considering this is a chain, the price point is way too high. That said, we weren't charged for my iced tea. The waiter sent over the Lobster mac and cheese (pretty good) on the house which was nice. If a bit odd. I doubt I'd make a point to go again. It was a nice one time visit.

    You can count on good food, wine and service. My only complaint was that despite having a reservation, we had to wait for our table and the hostess seemed clueless as to how to find us and let us know our table was ready. Once we were seated it was smooth sailing.

    We were celebrating our wedding anniversary. There were rose petals on our table, a nice hand written card for us, and we were given a mini dessert. It was very special. I didn't like the pressure to order a more expensive bottle of wine, however. We didn't want to break the bank so we went w/ a $38 bottle instead of spending more because we ordered expensive steaks.

    THE WAITER WAS REALLY PUSHING THE DRINKS AND APPETIZERS. ALSO, I ORDERED THE SALMON AND IT CAME WITH GREEN BEANS AND ARE SIDE WAS GREEN BEANS AND I THOUGHT THE WAITER WOULD RECOMMEND A DIFFERENT SIDE. THE BRUSSEL SPROUTS HAD BACON AND I DIDNT NOTICE THAT INGREDIENT ON THE MENU SO I WAS SUPRISE WHEN IT CAME. I DIDNT LIKE THAT I WAS SUPRISE WHEN IT WAS IN THE SALAD.

    Way too expensive . $15 drinks - everyting is ala cart -$50 steaks that are said to be dry aged ? We had a table for four adults , 2 drinks 2 appitizers to share , 1 bottle of wine $60 . 3 steaks and a sea bass and 1 cheese cake to share . Total Bill $495 with tip $ 600. I hope they can make it with these prices and get people to come back . You have to search to fine prices on there menu , I think I know why .

    We don't get out often but when we do we would rather do a higher end dining place and the Capital Grille delivers. We had told some friends of ours how great the food and service were here but be prepared to pay a little bit more. Their skepticism vanished within a few minutes after seating. Out server Ralph was great and did not rush us while explaining the wine line list and the specials for the night. What a great night.

    My husband and I were celebrating new jobs. There was a nice, handwritten, note of congratulations from the restaurant and confetti on our table..a nice touch. The food was very good, especially the crab & lobster cakes. However, when my Delmonico Steak came overcooked, our server and the manager took great measures to make sure this did not define our experience. They provided me with another, gave us desserts and comped my meal. It's important to note that I did not complain.. only gave my server my.opinion when he asked how it was. The food was great but the Customer Service truly outstanding.

    We were celebrating our anniversary & found our table tastefully decorated with red heart confetti & congratulatory card. We enjoyed filets that were seasoned & cooked to perfection. It was refreshing to actually taste the flavor & tenderness of the meat instead of having it masked with too many seasonings. The baked potato with white cheddar topping was outstanding...& just as delicious the next day reheated! The grand finale was a complimentary cheesecake, garnished with fresh berries, & delectable flour less chocolate cake. Both were served on a decorated platter with Happy Anniversary greeting in chocolate. Definitely a world class dining experience with outstanding service.

    We have enjoyed other CG's so we're expecting a similar dining experience here. For the most part it was very good. The waiter was attentive. We did have to ask for water refills. I had asked for a quiet table on the reservation (one in our party has hearing difficulties) and they did their best to accommodate. There was a cool breeze blowing down on us so we asked for it to be adjusted. They tried several times to address the Sitn but I eventually got my coat and wore it. Four of the five of us were uncomfortable during the meal. Except for one of the steaks (too tough) the food was excellent. While I could see that the restaurant was trying to do all the right things the occasion was diminished by the heating.

    We went with our friends and their little boy (18 months). We haven't seen them for a while, so asked for a table away from crowded areas. The restaurant really came through for us! We were far away from the crowds and our waiter brought a grilled cheese sandwich quickly for my friends son!! Everyone was nice and helpful!

    I had been to capital grille on a number of occasions. I am quite prepared for the prices and do not mind because the service is so exemplary. This visit though disappointed me. Our bread basket was empty and we had to ask for refills, we were never offered a second drink, service was slow. Usually the valet meets the car and opens the car door but they even failed at that. Service was average at best. Not what we have come to expect.

    Always heard about the quality service...a conservative understatement. Our server, Aaron Martin (middle name Royal), was fantastic. He welcomed us, took care of our special requests perfectly, well versed in the menu as well as the wine list. He showed great personality and never rushed us whatsoever. Naturally, the dinner was well presented and tasted great. But, it is the outstanding service that will bring us back.

    Trying to find time to celebrate our wedding anniversary seems to harder and harder to schedule each year so we ended up at Capital Grille on a Sunday night. Given that there was maybe only one or two business dinners occurring, the atmosphere was very quiet and intimate. The service was fantastic and their attention to detail was great.

    We were celebrating a new job and promotion. CG decorated our table, had a personal congratulations note and gave us 2 congratulatory glasses of champagne. The service by Brian was outstanding and attentive. We started with the lobster and crab cakes which were perfect/ Then for the entrees we ordered the bone in tenderloin with gorgonzola and cherry sauce and the 2 lb lobster poached in butter. Both entrees were so delicious that we ate them all up! Finished up with a trio of ice creams and a complimentary dessert of cheesecake and flourless cake. A fabulous restaurant that never disappoints but keeps getting better.

    It's rare that you can say, "that was one of the best 'X' I've ever had." But the Delmonico steak with carmelized onions and coffee run was hands down the best steak I've ever had. I purposely left a little so I could have some the next day.

    From start to finish our dinner at the Capital Grille in Rosemont was wonderful. After a horrific day of travel mishaps, I expected to be turned away despite reservations because we arrived 5 minutes past closing. However my fiancé and I were seated and the service was above and beyond. Our server Mike was so thoughtful and considerate he made our dinner experience truly special. He and the kitchen were able to fulfill specific meal preparation requests perfectly. The filet Oscar was delicious and tender; ahi tuna was also very good (though a bit salty). Sides of mushrooms and green beans (requested without butter) were outstanding. The Capital Grille turned our awful day completely around and was a perfect start to our weekend.
