  • "My husband & I brought our 3 kids here for my husband and son's 21st birthday. It was a Sunday 6pm reservation and they weren't too busy. We ordered calamari, porterhouse steak, delmonico steak, sea bass, truffle fries....all the dishes were amazing. Service was excellent, we were treated like royalty. They included personalized birthday cards and at the end of our dinner, they came out with 2 complimentary desserts. We will be coming back very soon!"

  • "The food was very good, but for the prices, I was expecting something different. We were seated in a booth near the bar area. I would have preferred a table, but had never been there before so did not know what to request. I felt that our server was not overly thrilled with serving us. It was much louder than I had imagined and not the atmosphere I was looking for."

  • "the food was amazing, as was expected. the service was great too. i asked for a wine recommendation and my server very promptly offered one that was mid-range as far as the price goes, as opposed to an expensive glass. i was slightly disappointed though when we asked to take home one of our appetizers, they said OK, but then they forgot when we brought the rest of our food home. just a bit disappointed."

  • "To be perfectly honest, I was quite disappointed . The ambiance was good, the service wonderful, but my shopped shrimp salad was rather mediocre , and I expected more. It was rather ordinary d this is a pricy place, so I guess I expected it to be more special, food wise. Do t think I'll go again anytime soon. Sorry. The good news is that our server was fantastic."

  • "We showed up and were seated promptly. When we were sat at our table, the table was decorated with rose petals, heart confetti, and a card that read Happy Anniversary. Nice touch. Both my husband and i had the bone-on filet, which was excellent. the server was attentive and professional. The sides were just o.k. The creamed corn tasted like plain creamed corn with some chopped bacon tossed into it. The potatoes au gratin were overcooked. Then lastly the parmesan truffle fries were over seasoned with truffle oil. Otherwise the drinks and wine were delicious. The steak was very tender and well seasoned, which made the whole meal salvageable for me. The just need to step up their sides to compliment their excellent steaks."

  • "We dined here on Sunday, June 15th for Fathers Day. I had the filet mignon, 10oz. And my husband had the porticinni rubbed steak(not sure if I spelled that correctly). Both of our dishes were very, very good. Our 9 yr old son had a burger which he said on a scale from 1 to 10 was an 11! Service was excellent. A great Fathers Day . We will dine here again."

  • "Capital Grille in Paramus is a favorite of mine. I booked thru Open Table and included a note and request to the restaurant. I was surprised by the special birthday decorations, card and dessert arranged by the restaurant. More than I asked for. Wonderful surprise and quiet fuss for us to enjoy. As always the food was delicious."

  • "Every time we come to the Capital Grille-it gets better and better. We arrive for a special birthday celebration and were taken to the requested "private room". We were a party of 9 people. It made the experience so much nicer. We were able to shut the door and hear each other speak. The restaurant is usually a bit noisy, but don't let that deter you. The food and service are second to none. My favorite is the Lobster Mac N Cheese. Yum!"

  • "I have been dining at Capital Grille for a couple of years now and at various locations on the east coast. From the moment you leave your car (complimentary valet) and all throughout your visit you will be treated like a special customer. The attentive service and attention to detail during your meal is always present. For special occasions the Grille will help you celebrate by decorating your table with confetti and an appropriate card will be left on the table. They will even add in a special "dessert" to guarantee that your event will be memorable, so make sure to call ahead and reserve and let them know of your occasion."

  • "We had requested a round table in a quieter location if possible because we were bringing an elderly family member. This was not only accommodated, but the restaurant called prior to fo Perfect table, terrific service, delicious food! And an extra surprise was how outstanding the crab meat stuffed lobsters were. One of our sons had a 2 pound lobster, the other twin had a 3 lb lobster. Excellent"

  • "My husband threw mw a surprise Birthday dinner earlier this month and we took our college-aged teenager back for his birthday dinner this week. Steak is melt in your mouth delicious as are the accompaniments and dessert. Service is unobtrusive and wonderful. Table was decorated with glitter and a birthday card was waiting for our son who was greeted warmly. Great place to be made feel "special"!"

  • "I was very unhappy with the service and the quality of food. I will no be returning again. The food was cold and salty. The service was horrible. Took 30 mins just to take our drink orders. Took another 15 mins to tell us that they did not have the bottle of wine we wanted. Overall I was not satisfied with my experience. I do not recommend this restaurant. "

  • "Two of us dined on a Saturday night at 8:00. We arrived early to have a cocktail at the bar. We were seated within 10 or 15 minutes of our reservation time. Bread basket was great - different rolls, crisp bread, and regular breads were all great. My husband's bone-in steak was cooked perfectly and he enjoyed it very much. My filet mignon, ordered medium rare, came out well done. The server noticed and offered a new one, but we didn't want to wait. He took it off the bill and offered one "to go," which I also declined since we were staying in a hotel. He was absolutely trying to make the best of a bad situation. Au Gratin Potatoes were too salty, so we picked at them. I'd try it again. Must've been an off night. "

  • "My husband and I shared a night with dear friends and suggested the Capital Grill to celebrate. The night was absolutely perfect! The food which included great steaks and halibut was so delicious. The spinach salad and crab cocktails got rave reviews too. Best cosmopolitans and wine complemented the dinner along with generous side dishes. So wonderful!! Service of our waiter Justin made us all feel so welcomed!"

  • "We thought this would be a good break between store-hopping, since it's so convenient, so we made an open table reservation. It's a beautiful atmosphere, very classy, but still casual enough if you're not dressed for dinner. Menu didn't offer a huge assortment of choices (it's definitely steak-oriented); we had the Halibut which was delicious, and a few appetizers, also great. The Lobster/Crab Cakes were phenomenal. Really attentive service. We entered at 6:45, and it was pretty crowded by the time we left at 8."

  • "We both had the sirloin steak which was excellent and cooked rare the exact way that we like it. The potatoes au gratin were terrible and very soupy. We couldn't eat more than a forkfull. The chopped salad had a very bland dressing. The oysters were fresh but the mignon sauce was terrtible and so was the red cocktail sauce. The service in the beginning was good, but then became sporactic. We dined around 5PM and it wasn't too busy so there is no excuse for this. We gave it 3 stars and not less because the steak was excellent but the rest fell very short from our expections."

  • "We met a business acquaintance for lunch and had a spectacular meal. The service was top-notch. I had seared scallops and clam chowder. Both were cooked perfectly. The clam chowder wasn't too salty and the clams were not rubbery. They don't rush you and the food came out at a reasonable time. We will be going back"

  • "always solid but for the price they need to be more consistent in service execution when its busy....small things like bringing the honey and sweetener when the coffee and tea come out and making sure silver is on the table before dessert is served and checking that customers have everything they need right after main course come out.....however,had swordfish special it was fabulous"

  • "Really enjoyed previously for lunch but found dinner to be significantly overpriced for good, but far from great, steaks. Steaks didn't compare to any of the better places around (even just locally). Service and ambiance excellent. Service was as good as it gets as a matter of fact. Cost however.... almost 200$(with tip) for 2 salads , 2 drinks, one steak/porterhouse split (more than enough steak btw) and 3 sides plus 2coffees seems stiff(although they did throw in dessert which was a nice touch). We did have a nice night however .Will probabaly try again at lunch but not dinner"
