    We were celebrating my husband’s birthday which was two days after Valentine’s Day . The hostess gave me a long stem red rose and there was a birthday card at the table with confetti and little pieces of candy (very thoughtful). I enjoyed my food however my husband order was incorrect. They waitress offered to replace it but we declined as service was a little slow to begin with. Overall we enjoyed ourselves.

    We have been celebrating our special occasions here for many many years now and they do not disappoint ….! This time was no different, we had to cancel our Valentine’s Day plans due to a last minute family emergency and they were able to accommodate us the very next day with no hassles. The service, food and ambience were perfect. Thank you again and see you soon!

    Awesome! Lovely first Valentine’s Day dinner as a newly married couple! My wife and I got engaged at Capital Grille June 2022, and were married in Boston September of 2023. Lovely experience, fantastic service and food is always amazing! We’ll definitely be back for many more married couple experiences lol.

    My husband and I have been enjoying dining with Capital Grill downtown Chicago since 2021. He had surgery at Northwestern and everyone was so kind to both of us during those frightening days. From the moment we arrive until we leave it was, and is a dining luxury. Of course the food is excellent too! This trip I was with both of my sons (while my husband stayed home) for an overnight in the city. We of course had to eat at CG! Normally our server is Paul who is outstanding, he even asked how my husband has been. Our server this visit was Blake and she was excellent as well! I wish I could articulate how much I appreciate the wonderful people working to take care of our moments with them; my heartfelt thanks to you all!

Every city I visit that has a Capital Grille, the service is consistent and the food is delicious! Thank you, again Capital Grille for an excellent experience!

    Had the sliced steak and sea bass dishes: the portions are on the smaller side, both were cooked perfectly, but the sea bass sauce lacked flavor. The presentation of each was great. The cocktails were good and the cheesecake. I didn’t like that I was given a menu with smeared food on it ( you would think these were cleaned between uses) The staff were nice and personable.

    The service was on point. The wedge salad was wonderful. I substituted the blue cheese for the lemon vinaigrette. The filet with a side of au -poive peppercorn sauce was perfect. The au-gratin potatoes as a side was delicious and the flourless chocolate espresso cake was a perfect ending to a wonderful meal. The aesthetic is very clubby in design with great jazz playing in the background at the perfect volume level. This is one of my favorite restaurants in downtown Chicago because of the aforementioned details. Everyone should experience the dining dynamic here at The Capital Grille.
