Diner Reviews
  • "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 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"

  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Their were a few steaks that were either over cooked or under cooked.. first time ever sending 2 steaks back and having 2 over cooked and they just ate it..."

  • "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."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "I brought my customers to dine here as my guests. My $43 steak was not cooked as ordered. Not complaining about the price. I just expect for the price we pay the service should match. The server did not even ask us to cut into our steaks to check them. I think it was just the server we had. We were running out of water. We waited a long time to place our order. Every step of the meal seemed we were staring at each other wondering where the server had disappeared to. We had to flag down another server to get our server's attention. I believe there are a lot of outstanding restarurants in Stamford. Next time, I will try another place."

  • "I have never had a bad experience at Capital Grille and this time did not disappoint again. The only bad point was we were seated next to the kitchen, which was noisy and loud. Food was excellent and ordering from the restaurant week menu made things easy. $30.14 for dinner at Capital Grille is a steal!"

  • "Our reservations were at 5:30 PM. The place gets packed. Go early! Our only complaint was lack of heat. We were in a back room that was quite chilly upon arrival and never did really warm up. Seating was excellent, tables are large enough so you have plenty of room for food, wine, bread etc. You can really sit and relax over a wonderful meal."

  • "Food quality was very good (I recommend the Delmonico bone-in ribeye), our waiter Federico took good care of us and the ambience was dark & rich, befitting a high end steak house. Prices felt high but generally what I expected. I will be back."
