the menu has plenty of options and everything we have ordered has been delicious. I had baked oysters for an appetizer and the oysters were cooked perfectly, tender and luscious. For my entree, I had Wagyu steak that melted in my mouth, accompanied by roasted potatoes, asparagus and corn. The cocktails and wine were really good also. The service is always excellent, especially ZuZu and Sophia.

The food was awful and the drinks were not good. The steak was too tough Tibet’s and the fish was no where near fresh. Very disappointing. We were told that the kitchen was chaos with out a real chef. I’d be very surprised if this restaurant stays in business with so many great options.

We had a very enjoyable dinner at Smith and Wollensky.
We ate outdoors in the back. S&W has fenced off the back area with planters umbrellas, outdoor lighting and even heaters. A beautiful transformation.

The food was excellent. We had beef and lamb. Superb quality meat. The side dishes were delicious as well.

Our waiter, Mickey, was friendly, attentive, humorous but not overbearing. The manager, Devin, stopped by and was also welcoming and wanted to be sure our dinner was a great experience.

Highly recommeded. The menu is available on-line, so you can check to see if it is to your liking.

We came for a late lunch and the restaurant was almost empty. After receiving appetizers we sat with dirty plates in front of us while the waiter, manager and hostess were standing on the side laughing and looking at their phones. Neither food, ambience or service are close to Capital Grille. Very disappointed considering we spend over $500 with gratuity for a group of 4

Just not a good night. Long lapses in service. We were there an hour and a half before we received bread. Missed some items that were ordered. Lots of managers but no one stopped by to check in. Steak severely undercooked but I couldn’t bare the thought of sending it back as we had already been there so long. I was willing to cut some slack due to staffing crisis but this was beyond a little slow, and at these prices, I expected better. I’d recommend you take less patrons and service more appropriately.

we arrived for our 6:45 table for 4 reservation a few minutes early. it was not very busy. we asked to sit at a high top in the bar where 1 table was occupied and were told no without an explanation. The host then seated us at the worst possible table right next to waiter station and door to kitchen. he was not friendly.
The food was overpriced, not cooked properly to our instructions, and memorable only in that so unremarkable. both pieces of prime rib were severely undercooked. Medium came medium rare minus, and medium rare was RARE-mooing rare. One would think they'd be able to get that right in a steak house. Oh and one of us wanted chicken which they were out of at 7:15-really!! She had salmon instead again unremarkable at best.At their very high menu prices, more is expected. We won't go there again.

Nice location in Wellesley, with an outdoor patio. Pricier than typical high-end steak restaurants, yet the food and service were great. Our waiter (JC) continually checked on us and engaged in great conversations.

Dined outside. Dinner service was slow from drinks to getting the check. Our server had indoor and outdoor tables - including a large table inside. Two steak dinners were not cooked as ordered, over sauced and had to send back. We expected much better for this type of steak house and menu prices.

The steak was excellent, perfectly cooked as ordered. However the sauces (peppercorn and brandy/morel) were very disappointing and lacked flavor. The sides were good. The angry shrimp appetizer again was advertised having a spicy lobster sauce but I could never taste that. Service was very good.
