Intractable unreasonable manager with arbitrary policies. It’s rare to be treated so poorly. With a change of management this establishment could become good again

Well not book with open table next time - assigned a table next to the bathroom and close to the front door so felt a cold breeze every time the door was opened. There were several booths empty for the 90 min we were there.

Exceptional as always! After a few eventful weeks, it was great to come to Cap and feel at home and blow off steam with friends. Kelly and Jeremy took great care of us, and it was great to see so many of the people who work there. We ordered steak, tuna, and a burger, and everyone was happy with their dinner. 10/10

My wife and I can't say enough about the Capital Grille. This is Darden's finest and highest end restaurant, and the very first time that we have eaten there. The evening that we dined we were six people. It was my Birthday celebration and we asked for a quiet setting and were given a room with eight tables total spaced apart. The table was decorated with confetti and a birthday card from the staff. The table ordered a few appetizers to share, which were plentiful and very tasty. Then the mains and sides: 2 filet mignons, 1 au poive, 1 Porcini Rubbed Bone-In Ribeye with 15-Year Aged Balsamic, 1 Pan-Seared Salmon, Citrus Glaze, 1 Roasted Chicken Breast With Mushrooms and Parmesan Risotto, and 1 Lobster and Crab Cakes. The sides were: Roasted Wild Mushrooms, Sautéed Spinach with garlic confit, and Sam’s Mashed Potatoes (Red bliss potatoes, sweet cream, butter and salt). Desserts were Classic Crème Brûlée with seasonal berries and Seasonal Berries with vanilla bean crème anglaise. With the meal we had a bottle of Orin Swift Abstract. The standout main was the Bone-in Ribeye. The 2 Filet Mignons were very good, but not the equal of the Ribeye. All 3 sides were exceptional. The wait service was extraordinary and so was the hospitality. I have to place this dining experience at or near the top. Truly enjoyable. I will definitely return.

The Capital Grille is pricy but they really do have the best steaks in Boston. I had the bone-in filet mignon and my husband had the bone-in ribeye. The portions were large and cooked perfectly. Our server Vanessa was very helpful with wine selection and very pleasant to speak with through the night. We were seated in a small dining room in the back so the noise level was low. The main dining room was quite busy and much louder.

Bone in fillet is the best. My wife likes the sliced fillet with mushrooms. Great onion soup. Fresh made salads. Top notch sides and you can get 1/2 portions. Wine selection is top notch. Never had a bad server in all the times we’ve been there.

My friend and had not seen each other for some time and wanted to get together for a nice leisurely lunch

Steaks were ordered medium well, and both of them were burnt a little bit on the outside, but the meat was outstanding and the mashed potatoes were the best I've had in my entire life.

Once again we had a wonderful experience at The Capital Grille. Abdel, our waiter, was excellent. His knowledge of the wine list, his consideration of our children during our meal (making sure the plates weren’t hot, not giving them steak knives which is rarely seen with waitstaff at other restaurants) and suggestions on the menu made our time at the restaurant that much more relaxing and enjoyable. Our steaks were cooked PERFECTLY and all of our food was amazing. The restaurant was also able to accommodate a booth as requested for us.

Great service & wine selection! However, steak was definitely not worth the $60+ dollars we paid for each cut.

Despite a delicious dinner, the experience started uncomfortably. We arrived on time and we were immediately brought to our table. The restaurant was half full and I asked if they might be able to sit us at a different table, perhaps a booth. The table we we were placed at was on the aisle next to the kitchen and pretty much the “worst” table in the house. I called in advance and requested a nice table since I was treating my family to a Christmas celebration. The hostess sitting us said she doubted she could accommodate us. She went off and came back and said it was not possible to move us as they had other reservations. There were at least 12 other tables that were empty and would have been preferable but she continued to tell us no, we could not be seated at any of them. Did she expect me to slip her money for my request? We sat at the table she first placed us at although it made no sense as to why moving was impossible. We then ordered drinks and it was then I realized we were also sitting in a drafty area. Fortunately, our lovely waitress turned the evening around. I asked her if the restaurant was cold and she said that we were close to the door and asked if we’d prefer another table, perhaps a booth? She moved us immediately to a booth I’d asked the hostess about earlier and was denied. Why the waitress could move us immediately and the hostess told us no is baffling?! The rest of the evening was wonderful. Not a single other table was seated and I still do not understand why the hostess denied my request to move. It pretty much ruined and tainted what would have been a perfect evening. Thank goodness our waitress, Addy treated me with respect and accommodated what should have been a reasonable and easy request in the first place!
In hindsight, I wondered if it was due to my being a woman with 2 young adults? Given it being the Sunday of Christmas weekend, business patrons were non existent and patrons, including me were using hard earned money to pay.
