Sea bass was served lukewarm- then reheated to a rubbery consistency. I expect more from the Capital Grille.

Dry aged strip peppered Kona style. Seriously the best steak I've had. The only thing that could have made it better would have been a piece of foie on top.

Experience was good. Had two servers helping us. One friendly and one a bit dismissive. The dismissive server spilled a drink over bringing the check.

The calamari was very good and spicy. We ordered 3 filets medium. All 3 were served well done. The french onion soup was SO SALTY. If you like cheesy au gratin potatoes, don't waste your money.
Won't be returning to a Capital Grill for a long time.

The Generous Pour is a great value with a large selection of quality wines. We enjoyed tuna and a burger. Service was stellar as always. In addition to longtime bartender Chuck, we met a new bartender whose name I think we Andrew, who was also great, and we were able to server Addy who stopped by to see her regulars. A great end to the weekend!

If you love to drink good wine and food, The Generous Pour is a great option. Endless wine pours from a variety picked specifically for this. The steak and crab cakes never disappoint.

Food was great! Would absolutely do again. They made us feel very welcome. For casual casual experience, if we had done it, I would prefer the bar/bar area. Was lively and fun. Again, very good overall experience in the dining room

The lobster Mac and cheese was terrible and had one piece of small claw meat in it. The Brussels sprouts were burned and tasteless. The steak and mashed potatoes good and the lobster bisque was good.

As a couple who dine out often and well, we have ignored Capital Grille, regarding it as “just another steak house.” All that changed with this meal. The food was excellent, the wine list extensive with some very reasonable selections, and the service was the best we’ve experienced in Boston. Ali was attentive without being intrusive and followed our lead on timing the courses. Capital Grille is definitely on our “go to” list going forward.

Chuck and Jeremy were on the bar and had their hands full with a huge party and the Red Sox crowd. They delivered the same awesome experience as always, even though they were in the weeds. Fantastic steak and chicken sandwich. Love it.

We made our reso day of and had a wonderful time. First, when I got there I let them know it was our anniversary - but right as we were going to be seated. They immediately moved our table to one that was decorated with heart confetti and a sweet note. I couldn’t believe how quickly they switched our seat.

Our meal was outstanding!! I had the French onion soup, filet, mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts. My husband had calamari, strip with lobster tails. Everything was cooked to perfection. They gave us a cute little dessert plate with cheesecake and flourless chocolate cake. Absolutely amazing.

Thank you for the incredible service! We can’t say enough!

Our experience was awesome! Service, food and atmosphere were all terrific. No better place for a steak dinner. We indicated in the reservation that the dinner was to celebrate our son’s graduation. At the table was a “congratulations” card signed by many of the staff and a fun splattering of confetti. Mimi was our server and she was truly excellent. A memorable celebratory dinner that my son will always remember!!

I love to go to the Capital Grille for special occasions and business meals with special clients. Recently was my first time back in over a year. The service was great, I just happened to have a tough Kona crusted bone in strip steak that seemed under seasoned (a little blah) for my liking. It’s my go to dish there. I didn’t complain about it and everyone else liked their meals. Maybe I had an off night?

Very nice server. However he bitched quite few of our orders. We had two dairy allergic folks at our table that he brought plates with dairy items on it. He also brought me a bowl of chowder when ordered a mug. He was very polite and professional but not a very good listener.

Exceptional hospitality from all staff, amazing bar experience with Chuck and Addy, fresh seafood and perfectly cooked steak. You can’t beat Capital in Back Bay.
