  • "We always go during restaurant week. They have the best deal! The food is always delicious and the wait staff is great."

  • "It was restaurant week and our anniversary. We were treated like special guests. There were rose petals on the table along with a card for our anniversary. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. Capital grille never disappoints."

  • "The Capital Grille in downtown Stamford has put Morton's out of business. Everything is well prepared here and the service is very good. It is a nice place to enjoy a special meal or to meet a client for lunch. It is conveniently located adjacent to the Stamford Town Center and parking is readily available in the mall parking lot or use their valet service if you can't walk two feet. Their prime aged steaks always arrive as order and the sides are excellent as well. The only dish that was not prepared well was the crème brule that was soft on top, probably due to the crowds eating there for Stamford's August Restaurant Week."

  • "Always a pleasure to eat here, especially during Restaurant Week this week, so make a quick reservation. Choice of appetizer, steaks, sides and dessert, with the usual quality and quantity."

  • "Excellent food and service. Incredible offer during restaurant week... Horrible being seated in the side room."

  • "Great place, no doubt. The service was great for those who ordered a la carte. We chose from the Restaurant Week menu and had to chase our server for attention. Once I mentioned this menu, we were not offered bread or additional appetizers, etc., which I initially was actually planned on ordering in addition to the fixed menu. Food was good, but not excellent: my salad (a little weird chef's solution) was extremely vinegary and the dressing did not really suit the greens - boston lettuce (both hearts and green portion thereof), julienned carrots - too hard for this type of salad."

  • "While a chain that looks typical steakhouse, they nit only have mastered the perfect steak, but also perfect service."
    Dined on 8/20/2014
  • "Very good overall on food and service. Your waiters and waitresses are extremely professional. However, based upon my overall restaurant experience I would not rate you exceptional which is the 5th star. However, the most exceptional waitress I ever encountered is Bianca at your Stamford restaurant. She is definitely five star! I would visit your restaurant more often if it was less expensive."

  • "The Capital Grille is often overlooked for a quick lunch alternative but as is the case with all customer service requests, just inform your server of your time constraint and they will oblige! You can have a delicious and quick meal."

  • "I've always had consistently good dining and service at Capital Grilles all around the country. The Stamford location, my "home town" Capital Grill, is hands down the best though! Our sever, Alana, was outstanding. She was always nearby when we needed her, she was very well versed on the food offering as well as the wine tasting promotion and made dessert suggestions that were heavenly!. We ordered dinner specials of a baked, stuffed two pound lobster and a bone in filet and we shared them. A great surf & turf combination that was prepared to perfection. We'll be back again soon!"

  • "Finally found a time that enabled the family to get together for dinner. The vote was for Cap Grill. Excellent meal with 3 of six choosing the steak and lobster special, one ribeye, one strip and one filet. Truffle fries, sautéed spinach. A couple of apps/salads (lobster bisque, Caesar, beet,Oysters). Red wine options range from reasonable to not so much. We went with a couple of bottles of fairly reasonable (Freemark). Our server (Jermaine) made sure the "flow to the table" was leisurely but not slow. Food was uniformly excellent with the entrees cooked as requested and served nice and hot. Had a good evening all around and dinner was the center piece."

  • "We recently celebrated wedding anniversaries with friends. Food and service was excellent, as always. Table was decorated with heart confetti and we were surprised with beautiful, special "Happy Anniverasry" desserts. Just fabulous!"

  • "We were lucky to get a table outside, inside you needed a jacket and a pullover, like in the most US restaurants it's always to cold"
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "This is an excellent location for a business lunch. Besides a variety of price points on the menu and reliable food, the Stamford location is ideal for a business lunch. The Stamford Capital Grill is much quieter than 42nd Street near Grand Central. To me, this makes it a better location for conversation and a successful lunch and meeting."

  • "Another wonderful meal at the Capital Grille. Great steaks, wonderful cocktails, excellent wine list, attentive service. Noisy but fun!"
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Been coming for many years and I must say that I have seen a decline in service- not what it use to be. $100/person demands exceptional service- perhaps a management change is in order"
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "considering all the steak places in the city this one falls short. Bit of a disappointment, even as a chain it's below its peers in all respects."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "It's always nice to be recognized as a returned diner. Capital Grille, does just that. Wonderful food as always, BUT how do they run out of baked potatoes? There's a Stop and Shop right up the road. Send someone there!!"

  • "I ate here with 3 colleagues on my second visit to this Capital Grille location. Nick, our server, was professional, personable, and efficient. The fresh oysters up front were delicious with the house-made mingonette. Our steaks, including one tuna steak, were done to perfection. The Parmesan truffle fries are not to be missed. All of us expected to be unable to finish the good sized servings, but to a person nearly licked our plates clean. For my money, Capital Grille sits atop the chain steakhouse mountain and their Stamford location does not disappoint. I will be traveling frequently to Stamford on business and definitely plan to dine here again. "

  • "Hard to find a high-end sure thing in Fairfield County that appeals to old and young alike. Though it's a chain, it is a consistently good chain and ideal for an important business lunch or dinner or a family gathering."
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "This restaurant is over priced and over valued. Granted it is very nice but much overrated. My wife's sliced tenderloin was not cooked as asked for. For this outrageous price, everything should be perfect! The wait staff was very good but the buss staff was nothing special, a problem, and couldn't speak English. You can't have this for the money you pay. I was not worth the money, period. I can afford this level of quality but I won't be returning. "

  • "The food at this leading chain is consistently good. My wife and I both had filet mignon. The meat was cooked properly and was very tasty. Try the lobster, macaroni and cheese for a treat. Good wine list. The wine we ordered was not the 2011 vintage as listed. It was a 2012 vintage which is actually better. Waiter was very friendly and provided good service even though he had a large party next to us."

  • "I have gone here many times. I do not know what has happened. This tine the meal was terrible. The fish was tough. I had chicken which was burnt. The only goon thing in the meal was the coffee."

  • "The Capital Grill gets all honors from the valet parking to walking in the door. If you want to be serviced, enjoy amazing steak and made the priority, this is the place for you. From the setting and surroundings to the staff check in, to coat check to the table service to the food every staff member from the opening of the door to closing the door behind us, was amazing."
