Thanks for a wonderful evening. The food, service and ambiance were great. The Manager was attentive to our needs and couldn't have been nicer. Thank you again.

My husband and I had a 5:15 pm dinner reservation - a Saturday night date in Boston.

The restaurant was only 1/4 full. Nevertheless, after several minutes with 2 hostesses busily reviewing the seating charts, we were led through a lively but near empty dining room to a drafty, completely empty dining room in the back of the restaurant with no other patrons, no music and clearly a party / for hire room that was separate from the main space.

After our initial shock, I asked the hostess to sit us at one of the many empty booths in the main dining area. After an additional 5 minutes we were seated at the booth closest to the kitchen.

Was it a coincidence that I was the ONLY black woman in the restaurant? Was it not interesting that when we left 90 minutes later many tables in the main dining room were still empty? And I remained the only black woman dining in the restaurant until we left?

While managers came to tables all around us to ask diners after each course how they were doing, no one came over to see how we were doing, especially after we asked to be reseated.

As we were leaving the restaurant, a manager cheerily asked how our meal was. When we discussed our concerns he cheerily stated he would make sure it was noted that we wished to be seated in the main dining room in the future.

Really?

Do minority diners now have to request to be seated in the main dining room along with everyone else at this expensive steakhouse?

This is how a major flagship restaurant in Boston feels is ok to treat a diner who has been on open table for 15 years with a long history of expensive fine dining - easily tracked in my open table account-whether I am a minority or not?

I cannot remember the last time in dining around the world that I have been treated so callously.

We had Logan at the bar. Incredible as always! We ventured outside of the usual steak and burgers, and we were both very happy. It’s a steakhouse with very good seafood and lamb options. Can’t wait to go back!

We were unexpectedly looking for a dinner spot and were staying at a nearby hotel. We were able to book a table on 15 minutes notice despite the fact that the restaurant was apparently almost full. The service was impeccable and I would give it 6 stars if I could. Everything was delicious. No missteps here. We have a daughter in college in Boston and we will be back to eat at the Capital Grille for sure.

We sat in the smaller/private room off to back. Our waiter made the night. He showed interest in us and our story and had the perfect balance of being available while also allowing us the time to enjoy. We opted not to have dessert as we had eaten plenty and didn’t have much room left. Our waiter realized that and brought us two small desserts that were perfect size for our appetite. The food was excellent but the service was even better. Will definitely
be back soon!

Consistently excellent service with beautiful beef and other items - mushroom bisque superb - with upscale yet relaxed ambiance and good wine list. Always leave happy though with a considerably lighter wallet.

One of the best meals we have ever had. My wife and I had dinner here on new year's eve and from beginning to end it was outstanding. We had reservations and we were seated just a couple of minutes upon arrival. Our server, Francis, was quickly at our table and was efficient and attentive the whole evening. We both had one of the best cuts of meat we have ever had. Everything was cooked to perfection.

Capital Grille Boston was excellent. The service was superb and the ambiance was great. If other restaurants offered 1/2 the attention Capital Grille offers, they’d get five stars. Likewise, each of our appetizers and main courses was excellent, with the green beans being the least and the mashed potatoes being the most. My two complaints - and they are substantial - are with the sound level (quite loud) and the cost. We spent a LOT for three people and we - easily - could have got by with ordering fewer items and splitting them. Drink prices were preposterous, both for mixed and wine!

Both of our steaks were very overcooked. We aren’t that picky about this, so we didn’t send them back. But we were surprised they were sent out of the kitchen so well done relative to the medium we asked for (no pink in either steak at all). The one I ordered was au poivre which I’ve had before and loved. This one was really spicy, so this may not appeal to many. Service and decor were great, as always.

Awesome service, went above and beyond to make my Fiancé’s birthday special. Only downside was the noise level. The restaurant is definitely one of the louder I’ve been to, but could have been because it was extra busy during the holidays.

Melissa was our server and she was very friendly and respectful. We were on our way to a show and somehow she knew and assured us we would be on time. That immediately takes the pressure to rush off the table. Of course the meal was outstanding as usual. The service was exemplary and the ambiance was cheerful and elegant.
We go to the CG every year before a show and will continue to do so.

We started with a drink in bar and the staff was professional and friendly . Our waiter was knowledgeable and made a wonderful wine recommendation and he suggested an entree which was incredible. As always the food was delish . My husband had a ribeye with Cajun seasoning and a starter of oysters. I enjoyed a salad and the waygu beef ( like butter). Enjoyable and thank you to the staff .
