    Our go to place in Boston for special events. This time we celebrated our 56th anniversary with fine steaks, wonderful wine and great service. We particularly appreciated the extra effort made by the staff to celebrate our day (table decorated, celebratory card, and a lovely dessert and champagne to end it all. We will return again!

    The table ordered three medium rare steaks - two filets mignons and one boneless rib eye. While the rib eye was cooked pefectly, unfortunately the filets were oveirdone and were closer to medium. The server and manager were very apologetic. The manager offered to have fresh steaks cooked . At the end of the meal, three desserts were delivered to the table. The issue was handled perfectly by the manager.

    Waited a long time for our meal and not sure why we were there pretty early and the dining room was empty. Got our steaks med well so we thought maybe that was the case but our steaks ended up being rare. Waited 30 + mins for my second drink. Its not typical of our experience here ever so we were surprised

    Extremely poor service and overcooked tasteless meat. We had high hopes but it was a total waste of time and money. The waiter did never check on us and did not even fill our glasses except when he opened the bottle. Never again.

    We celebrated my niece’s first wedding anniversary. The staff made it very special. The table was decorated and a card was left, signed by the staff. The food was fabulous! And we were surprised with a special dessert sampler in honor of the occasion. Thanks for making this special event a memorable one

    Great dinner spot for a large group. Long and round tables make it comfortable to fit everyone in. Great service and excellent ambiance. Food was very good and fast service despite being a large group. Filet mignon was melting in your mouth. Tuna tartare is always one of my favorites

    The food was amazing and they treated us to champagne and dessert since it was our anniversary. Sadly, the waiter was completely absent after his one check in our satisfaction with our food. We had to ask the bussing staff to remove our plates after a long wait and no attention. I had a delicious surf and turf dish and specifically asked that they include the left over sauce with my take home box. Unfortunately they did not! So sad the next day upon opening it! Also, far too much panko on the au gratin potatoes. Yes, we would go again for the impeccable food!

    Portions small and pricey. Don't mind spending alot if you get alot. Service could have been quicker Our server was pleasant until I asked manager to check on my wine (had been 10 min ). She seemed a bit put off. I felt badly after that but when eating a $300 meal we expect $300 service

    Reserving with open table was easy, the restaurant was ready with a GF menu and a custom decorated table for our anniversary that was ready on arrival. The server was so nice and treated us extra special for our anniversary and gave us a dessert with happy anniversary decorated on the plate. The food was amazing! Our only complaint is that it was a little too dim.

    Wow! Such a memorable meal! My husband, son & I dined here based on great reviews for steak dinner. I’ve were in town delivering our son to uni and celebrating his do believe that one can get a preview of the quality of the meal based on the house bread, and Capital Grille’s outstanding variety of warm breads was an exciting sign of good things to come. The rich pumpernickel was enhanced with a small number of golden raisins, & a seeded bun tasted as though the seeds had been toasted -tremendous flavor via tiny vehicles. One small loaf, just out of the oven, had toasted onions on top & a dense yet fluffy texture. Some of the best bread ever. Hubs & I had tenderloin, mine with 2 lobster tails. The steaks were beautifully seared, seasoned well, and cooked perfectly to order -medium rare. They were so tender and tasty, and of course the sear adds so to the texture. Mine had a bit of bernaise on the steak & lobster and was a great addition. Our son had a cup of clam chowder, which he liked a lot, and helped us with our meals. We also got the lobster Mac & cheese and it was everything you’d hope - creamy, cheesy, a bit smokey & with buttered crumbs on top. Initially I was dissatisfied that it wasn’t casserole style, but it was the best Mac & cheese I’ve ever had. I had a simple field greens salad with radishes, carrots & Parmesan dressing. It was good but not as memorable as the other dishes. We completed dinner sharing a cheesecake (brûlée style - an individual round cheesecake with a crisp toasted sugared top ) with berries. Before a bite we could see the lovely dense texture of the tall cheesecake. It was excellent, complemented by the blueberries, strawberries, blackberries & raspberry coulis & mint leaves. My decaf was first rate as well. For a special occasion, we would highly recommend Capital Grille. We are already making plans to return on Parents Weekend.
