Great food, great waiter. We enjoyed our meal and will definitely be back again. We arrived just after a Boston Red Sox game and it was a pleasure.

Came here for our 5 year anniversary! Capital grille exceeded my expectations. Server Dominic was a absolute star! From dressing the table with roses and a happy anniversary card to the desert plate with the happy anniversary on the plate ... beginning to end it was amazing. Food was superb drinks was spot on. Definitely coming back and I’m definitely recommending to anyone that asks.

Old fashioned welcome and service. The food is of the best quality and the servers are friendly and welcoming but not intrusive. Highly professional service. The ambiance is restrained and comfortable with panelled walls and paintings. A delightful experience.

Our first time dining at this location after being regulars at the Chestnut Hill location. Excellent food and service. Having done the Generous Pour for many years, we thought the selection of wines this year was not as good as previous years. They were all rather ordinary.

My husband and I were celebrating our 5th anniversary. When I made the reservation I mentioned to them and when we got there Our table was decorated. Just so thoughtful of them. Service was great, the food I have no words for it. We had Tuna tartar, and Lobster and crab cake which were delicious. Then we had NY strip with Lobster Mac and cheese which was to dye for, and wild mushroom. I would totally recommend this place for the people, service, food and wonderful time.

The Generous Pour event is a great value!!! We enjoyed sitting at the bar with Chuck, Jeremy, and Elaine running the show. The seafood tower is our favorite summer dinner.

It was out first time at Capital Grille and I'm upset we didn't go sooner! I made the reservation for my boyfriends 28th birthday and requested a quaint table. The staff went above and beyond. Our table had confetti and a card signed by the staff. Our server Dom was fantastic! Thank you so much for the service and hospitality!

This was the perfect place to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The staff could not have been more accommodating and they went out of their way to make us feel welcome. There was a slight issue when we were served the incorrect main course but I think this was due to a trainee. There was nothing we would change about the evening but most importantly the food was outstanding! The best steak ever!!!!!

The food is amazing, service is impeccable no matter which capital grille you go to and the Boston location is no exception. You must try the seasonal corn dish and the brussel sprouts. Both are amazing! Also, while not specifically called out on the menu, the fillet Oscar with lump crab meat and bearnaise sauce is top notch

Amazing service from Molly, our server. It was my husband's birthday and she went above and beyond to make the evening special. Fantastic steaks, as always. New-to-us appetizer, prosciutto wrapped mozzarella was outstanding.

The food wasn’t cooked and I knew it wasn’t it took about 5 min to come out soo I knew it wasn’t
Done. And my Mac and cheese with lobster had about 2 tiny pieces for that price not worth it.

Very loud. Ordered the special-bone in filet for $68. Mistake. Better off with 10 oz filet off the menu. Worst meal in Boston so far. Mediocre at best.

We were celebrating my son's birthday. The service superseded my expectations, our waiter was excellent. They had the table decorated with birthday confetti and brought a dessert with candles at the end. The food was excellent, everything was hot and cooked perfectly. I would definitely recommend it.

We did the generous pour event and the waiter was not interested, took 30 minutes to get the second wine and he did not explain the wines at all. This was extremely disappointing as we were there for a birthday and was 28 dollars for the generous pour event. We will not be back for the event.

Fantastic experience. We got the generous pour wine tasting and chose two delicious wines. Cold shellfish platter appetizer was wonderful - some of the best oysters I've had. Tuna tartare was also excellent. Konami crusted NY Strip steak was perfectly done and very flavorful. Our waiter, Adam, was very attentive and friendly. All in all, an amazing experience.

We went to the Capital Grille for a family dinner and we were not disappointed. From the fresh bread, to the appetizers and the main course, the food was excellent. We all had a different entree...I had the pan seared sea bass and it was extremely flavorful. My daughter had the sesame seared tuna and it was prepared perfectly. My wife and daughter each had steak cooked to the proper temperature. All in all an excellent meal!!

Absolutely delicious food. Prepared perfectly. But total experience was exceptional due to the amazing service by our waitress Melissa. She truly cares about the customer experience. If making reservations, try to book a table with Melissa, she will bring your experience to a new level.

We always have a stellar experience at Capital Grille and this was no exception.

We started with a new appetizer, a skillet shrimp scampi which was very good.

Hubby had the fillet and I had the tenderloin with lobster tail - both were perfectly prepared and just delicious with a great glass of cabernet.

The space is lovely, warm and comfortable - you're going to drop some coin, but worth every penny for a special evening.
