Celebrating our daughter’s birthday. Attentive service and professional staff. Excellent food and desserts! They take allergies very seriously which for us is very important when dining out.

What a wonderful way to complete a great day after a great Handel & Haydn concert. Robert was our waiter. He recognized us from our last visit. Robert went the extra mile for us. Great Alaskan King Crab leg appetizer. Bone in filet was cooked perfectly. Spinach with garlic was excellent. My wife loved her special sliced filet with fig.

We enjoyed our crepe brûlée.

Robert suggested a great wine pairing.

We had a reservation at 7:15p and were seated right on time. We had a great meal and the service from Adam, our waiter, was outstanding!! My sister was in from out of town and we chose this restaurant to celebrate her birthday. We were not disappointed!!

Pricy. But among the only places in Boston where you can get a really good steak.

Manager, whom identified himself was an arrogant and immature host. I will be contacting CG headquarters. Absolutely, unacceptable behavior at an establishment of this caliber. Been a repeat guest at multiple CG’s across the Country as well as Steakhouse’s of equal or greater caliber and have never encountered such an inferior character of the host if a restaurant like this. I would not allow this guy to watch my shed never mind the Boston CG. I hope HQ reads this.

We have been here on several occasions and unusually, the food this time was not up to par. However, the service more than made up for it. Our server, Molly, was incredibly accommodating and intuitive, and the other staff very attentive. As for the food, we had both ribeye and sirloin and both were underwhelming. The ribeye seemed too lean for a ribeye and the sirloin had little flavor other than its seasoning and sauce. The Brussels sprouts were perfect although too charred for some. The sauteed spinach was swimming in oil and possibly unsalted, hence it was just oily wilted spinach. The cheesecake and chocolate mousse/cake, however, were absolutely delicious. When asked how the French onion soup was and our comment that it was a bit too salty, we found later that they had taken it off the bill. And when there was some confusion over the steak preparations but which did not bother us, they immediately made new steaks nonetheless. Overall we would still go back but this is a review of this particular meal and unfortunately it was not stellar as usual.

The meal was great as usual. Service was not very good. We had to ask for drinks multiple times. No desert menu was offered. The bread and butter were removed from the table while my wife was still eating the bread. Disappointed.

Though there were many tables available the host took us through the whole restaurant to seat us next to a serving area. After we complained marched us through the restaurant back to the host station then back to a more acceptable table. This was a birthday dinner which they were aware of at the time of the reservation. Very un-professional. Would not go back to this location again

My husband and I had a beautiful dinner on Saturday Sept. 14th. It was our anniversary and when we arrived at the table it was decorated and with a card signed by the staff. We also enjoyed a glass of champagne and a beautiful dessert on The Capital Grille. These are the detailed touches that makes a restaurant memorable. Thank you, Capital Grille for a wonderful evening!
