  • "We were a little skeptical about visiting a restaurant which is part of a chain. We had negative experiences at other restaurants such as Flemings, who are part of a chain. But The Capital Grille was the complete opposite. The staff was wonderful, the food was delicious, and the environment was clean and comfortable. My wife and i would recommend this restaurant to anyone, and we definitely would become repeat customers."

  • "The ambince was verygood we had window seating, our server Joshua B. was outstanding it was my wifes birthday and he treated her great even gave her a birthday desert. I had the portherhouse and my wife had the filet migon both med meaning hot pink center which i felt was not cooked to a guality of a high level steakhouse, the beef looked like it was cooked at a low temp/ broiler outside of our beef had little color and 3/4 of our beef was med well. I would have expected our beef to be cooked at 1100' to give it a good seared."

  • "The food and service was wonderful. The restaurant went out of their way to make our anniversary feel special. We received champagne, appetizer, and dessert free of charge along with our table decorated with rose petals. I definitely plan on going here for future special occasions. I expected the food and service to be excellent and they did not disappoint. The restaurant exceeded my expectations with the little attention to details."

  • "We celebrated my birthday and Fathers day as we always do. Food is always fantastic as well as the service. Out Waiter was excellent. Our food was perfect until my hisbands steak arrived at the tabler. He ordered the Steak Special Medium and it was cooked well done. The steak was taken back and cooked another one, but my meal was already there. We ordered AuGratin Potato and we where served Mashed. We shared my steak. The right order of Potatoes came to us 3/4 of the way throught the meal. Husband steak was brought to the table still not cooked properly now it was to rear. This has to be one of our favorite resturants in RI and we where disappointed."

  • "Upon entering we were asked what was the occasion for our visit. We explained that we are celebrating our birthdays. The wait staff decorated our table with birthday confetti and everyone that interacted with us wished us a happy birthday. When finished with our exquisite meal, the waiter and manager came over quietly with a happy birthday plate holding two delicious pieces of pastry and wished us a Happy Birthday. What a nice surprise! Between the food, wait staff, and finishing touches, our experience was very satisfactory. I would definitely dine here again."

  • "Unless you are familiar with Providence, it can be hard to find as it is below ground and between buildings. However, this makes for a very nice place to meet. The service was outstanding with refreshed drinks being presented before the last sip was even taken and the food was excellent. Highly recommend for any occasion but mine was only for lunch."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "There's no place else to go for the best. Very expensive, but you know that going in. The food, the preparation, the service is top shelf. Aside from food related elements, I particularly like the layout of the restaurants. Every table provides comfort, privacy, and even intimacy in a busy space. I hate the restaurants that seat you on top of one another. If you're into a splurge...Cap Grille is tough to beat..."

  • "We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. The waiter was awesome! The food is above average. The bread basket is so... good. The steaks are outstanding! They gave us free desserts with champagne to celebrate our special day. There were rose petals on the table when we arrived. We go to Providence quite often as we love to eat at Federal Hill. The Capitol Grill is expensive but it's worth every penny. We will return without a doubt. An outstanding establishment in the heart of Providence. This place does not disappoint."

It was a night we will always remember! All positive, too!"

  • "Our group of 6 went there on a Thursday evening. We were seated quickly. We received good advice from our waiter on menu items. Once we placed our orders the food came out quickly and very pleasing to the eye. But yet there was more - it tasted wonderful! The service was attentive but not intrusive. I highly recommend this location - which BTW is the original Capital Grille."

  • "It was my husbands 50th birthday and he had never been to the capitol grille before. I've been a few times with friendsand I just love the food and the atmosphere. It was a surprise and he was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. My 3 young children also came along and were excited to dress up and absolutely loved the steak, they also got a lobster dish. Our waiter was phenomenal and also brought a birthday surprise that was very unexpected . All in all it was a fabulous experience! We will definitely be back soon."

  • "Excellent food, mediocre service for the price. Took a full 15 mins after everyone put their forks down to get attention. This was particularly awkward since it was a birthday. a dinner for 4 at over $500 (no drinks) I'd expect better service."

  • "Would like more of a variety of salads and soup - a healthy menu should also be available. "
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Tonight, my experience was between average to below average. The calamari (pan fried according to the menu) was deep fried with lots of oil. To the point, that we did not finish it. I ordered the sirloin and lobster tail entree. Even though, I asked for medium rare, the steak came medium to medium well. The flavor was ok, nothing spectacular. The lobster tails were AMAZING.. We got a sample of the cheesecake and flourless chocolate cake since we were celebrating a special occasion and the former was very nicely done. The latter was a bit dense and heavy for my taste. The waiter was top notch. Very good service, attentive and polite. Service is Five Stars Food quality is about Three Stars "

  • "We recently had a great dining experience. Our waiter, Dan, was fabulous. Food and wine were great. They did a wonderful job for our special occasion."

  • "Consistently good. Had appetizers elsewhere, and came here for the great steak dinner my husband wanted while celebrating his 50th birthday. Our steaks were cooked just as we requested. Mine with the au poivre sauce was especially tasty and not something I would think to make at home. The truffle fries are great, and their au gratin potatoes very delicious, but their cream spinach was not as good as I remembered. The service as always was right on queue. Great night."

  • "We have tried numerous restaurants for Easter Brunch & this year, The Capital Grille, was excellent! The food,as always, was superb and the service great and we will be back next year for Easter."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "The steak was average, at best. Served broiled "au jus" it was more reminiscent of a roast beef presentation. Where's the "Grille" ! Additionally, for a 22oz Delmonico, it was quite thin, not suited for medium rare preparation. Lastly, the presentation 'rubs" which can be added to any steak is confusing. I asked myself why this is necessary; a good charcoal broiled steak needs nothing. Having had a steak prepared each way, the "rub gives it taste. The ordinary preparation is quite bland. Frankly, I scan make a comparable steak at home. Have been to a large number of high end steak houses, this ranks close to the bottom."

  • "My husband and I had a perfect evening celebrating our anniversary at Capital Grille. I had mentioned the anniversary on my reservation and we were greeted and wished a Happy Anniversary from everyone :the hostess, waiter, and the manager. There were rose petals on the table! Cocktails, wine and steaks were superb! My husband loved the Kona rubbed sirloin. Dessert was on the house. What a lovely evening!"

  • "Capital Grille used to be our go to places for many special occasions over the past 15 years but THESE days visiting there doesn't seem so special AND the quality of the food seems to have diminished. The last two times we have been the creamed spinach was overly salted (and not very creamy) and additionally the steak wasn't the usual melt-in -your mouth cut we have gotten accustomed to. Not sure we'll go back...with those prices you EXPECT to walk away satisfied. Perhaps it's suffering from chain ownership's all to typical lack of attention to detail (Owned by the same group that owns the Olive Garden) or maybe it's just dumb luck ( the past couple visits...not sure but not sure I want to give them an opportunity for a "third strike"."
