    Met with friends - food was great - hardly anyone in the bar, yet two reserved tables - our group of 4 was simply having a drink at 5:00 pm before our 5:30 dinner reservation - no one was at the bar tables - nor where they filled when we ended dinner at 6:30 pm. I thought it odd that we had to sit on bar stools near the window rather than sit together at one of the three open tables (2) with a reserved sign on them - the other nestled in a corner where 4 would not fit. The waiter was courteous - kept trying to take away the bread and calamari before the plate was empty - I recommend asking before his hand is stretched across the table. We were with great friends and had great food - that outweighed any of these minor observations.

    The waiter's recommendations were excellent and food portions were very generous. Steaks were excellent nicely seasoned, tender, and huge. Lobster Bisque and French onion soups were delicious. Lobster Mac & Cheese was excellent. Restaurant provided two glass of champagne for a toast and dessert for our anniversary dinner. A very nice way to celebrate an anniversary or special occasion. Cost for two was just under $200 with tax & tip.

    It was my brothers birthday and I had mentioned it when making the reservation. They put out Birthday confetti which was a very nice touch and even added a birthday card signed by the staff wishing my brother a happy birthday! They went above and beyond and made sure we had a great meal and surprised us with a birthday dessert (candles included) or should I say desserts (choc cake, coconut cake, and cheesecake). It was all very, very nice and I will definitely be coming back for my birthday or my other brothers! Thanks again so much to Capital Grille for making it a lovely night out!

    This was a spectacular evening celebrating our Anniversary. We were greeted with a specially decorated table and a card from the staff with anniversary greetings. A champagne toast followed and then on to dinner that was special in every way. We started with the best lobster bisque I have had and on to a specially prepared filet mignon. The night was topped off with a specially prepared dessert that included an anniversary greeting. Our service, provided by Marcello was beyond compare!

    We go to Capital Grille 2-4 times a year. Normally during Restaurant week and for special occasions. Love everyone at the Tyson's Capital Grille. The service is always top notch, the food is always perfect, and if it's not - they make it right. I've never received a bad recommendation from our server, to include the wine we splurged on this time. Yes it's pricey, but absolutely amazing. I highly recommend the Porcini rubbed Delmonico with the 15 yr aged balsamic. It is meat candy.

    Recently had lunch at Tyson's location with my wife and son. The service was excellent and so was the food, except for my burger which I had to send back for one that was medium rare. We love the original Capital Grill in Providence, but the Tyson's Grill is just as good.

    I just love the Capital Grille's lobster bisque with the abundant chunks of lobster. During this anniversary dinner, I ordered the steak and lobster meal. The filet was extremely tender and really could be cut with your fork and the lobster topping was cooked perfectly. The meal was a bit too much for me and would have preferred a half order. There were two filets! The personalized note card wishing us a happy anniversary was just another touch of special service.

    Going to Capital Grill always exceeds my expectations with great food and service. The steaks and seafood were nothing short of spectacular. Although we have been frequent dinners in the past it was my daughters first time dining at Capital Grille and our waiter Rustam took the extra time to go over the menu choices with her. Just a great experience all around. Looking forward to a return trip soon.

    This is the second time we have come to the Capital Grille to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were seated at a table festively decorated and with a best wishes card signed by the staff on duty that evening. The food was outstanding -- we both chose filets that were prepared to perfection. The wine was excellent -- thanks to the advice of our server Jack. He was attentive and helpful throughout the meal. The complimentary dessert of chocolate and cheesecake was the perfect end to a perfect meal. We will be back for #48 next year and probably before.

    Celebrated my mom's birthday here. I noted it in my reservation, they put small decorations on our table, the wait staff told my mom happy birthday and they even gave us complimentary dessert! Service was excellent! Food was superb as well. We ordered the dry-aged 14 oz ribeye ($58) and Chilean sea bass. The steak was terrific. The sea bass was the biggest piece I've ever seen, also the most expensive at $44. We also had sautéed spinach ($12) as a side. Great service and food and classy environment, AND complimentary valet! One thing that I did not like was the fact that they use electronic candles.

    There were five of us and we enjoyed our meals. The portions were a good size and the service was excellent. I started with the lobster bisque, which was very thick and had many pieces of lobster. The others each had steak, but I had one of the specials: Salmon Oscar. There was a lot of crab on top of the salmon, and I enjoyed my meal.

    Won't go too much in detail about food because I'm not a food critic, I have my own acquired taste but the menu offers just about variety of options if you're not a huge steak lover. I'm not head over heals about steak but the Bon-In Kona Crusted T-Bone was just tough enough with juice in every bite. The filet mignon was so easy to cut thru and cooked just how I requested (medium with just enough pink in the middle... It was pink). The service was superb. I do recommend dressing up but I saw people wearing tasteful casual wear and got by. It's really dim lighting, very intimate but is saw big groups of 5-7. Love the decor, fits well and not over the top. Dessert... Cheesecake and the flour less chocolate cake was on point after a heavy meal
