Had a wonderful graduation dinner here. Everything about it was perfect. The food was delicious, the atmosphere felt so special and the service was outstanding. We loved the way they put graduation confetti on the table and brought out a congratulations dessert platter to our graduate...on the house. It was the perfect ending to a wonderful weekend and we were so glad we chose this restaurant for our celebration. Our waiter was wonderful and was so great at making this dinner about our family and our graduate. Never once did he try to talk us into things yet was so helpful with anything we needed. From the time we walked in everything felt special.

I thought the service was excellent but the steak was not as good as it usually is my filet was all charred on the outside which made my meat more medium well rather than medium. The sides we ordered were delicious. The other meal which was a special that evening I was told was cooked perfect and he enjoyed his meal very much.

Still my favorite steakhouse...maybe in the world. Consistently outstanding food and service. Decent but not awesome wine list and a reasonable value for a premium steakhouse. Love it for a great steak, great service weather a special occasion or just a great business meal. Oh, I wish there was a rewards program for frequent guests.

I have been coming here for years. It’s always been fabulous. This time not so much. I asked for a recommendation and then took it. The bone-in filet. While it was very tender, even with the Kona coffee rub it was still too bland for my taste. And overpriced at $72. This was a “special “. I will continue to go to the restaurant, but not ask for suggestions.

The Capital Grille takes Boston dining to a whole new five star level. Arriving early, we were seated within 5 minutes. From sparkling water to dessert, each and every dish was perfectly balanced! The flavors were perfection. The service was not "in your face" intrusive, yet your waiter appeared at your table anticipating your every need. I've read it can be noisy, however I have never had an issue with sound.
A friend in the restaurant business a long time ago said: "A restaurant is only as good as the last meal." Every visit of mine continues to exceed five stars.

One of the best visits we have had to the Capital Grilleand the bar is always set very high at this price point. All of our steaks were terrific as were the side dishes . It is too bad they do not have the creamed corn available at this time, it is usually the best.
