This was our third visit to The Capitol Grille, and it was our best experience to date. What raised the bar on this occasion was our server, Ali who is a consummate professional. Ali exudes a mastery of his craft, and a sense of joy and pride in his work. The food an ambiance of this restaurant is always terrific, and Ali just raised the bar to a level that made for a memorable evening.

Our server Brian was fantastic and very descriptive about all dishes. Overall the environment was nicely set up for Valentine’s Day. My fiancée got the in-bone koba crusted NY Strip steak and it was great, on the other hand I got the in Bone filet mignon steak and unfortunately it was very under-done; I ordered it medium rare and it came out barely blue rare (rather raw inside). I tried giving it a shot by having it put back on the grill to my doneness but I felt kind of disgusted trying to eat it; I ended up unable to finish both steak and my side of lobster mac & cheese. I didn’t want to be one of those customers and just ask for it to be covered by the house. Overall Brian saved the day with his professionalism and courteousness.

Very slow service from a very pompous waiter -- and steaks that just were not worth waiting for. Nothing else was particularly tasty or well prepared, either. This place was once great. So very, very disappointed.

We had Brandon as our waiter while we celebrated two birthday’s. He did an excellent job and was on top of everything. Food served hot and never waited for anything. Great job by Brandon and The Capital Grill! Thanks

Just Terrific from the start. We were greeted by the host. We told him that we had a reservation I would prefer sit at the bar. He walked us over to the bar and got us on the waiting list before you know it we were sitting down. The bar staff was courteous, entertaining, and attentive. Of course, the food and drink was excellent.

Adam was once again our server which was a plus since we enjoyed his service before. The food is always excellent. I had the mini tenderloin sandwiches and my partner had the salmon. We were both happy with our meals.

Always a great experience at Capital Grill.. Chris Scott the manager was off that night and that’s when you can tell a well run ship is at sail. It runs just like he was there, that’s the sign of great management.... Excellent Birthday/ anniversary dinner and our waiter James made it a memorable dining experience....

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.
