We went here for Easter and it was awesome as usual! Awesome service and food! Not sure why they have to charge $21 to valet when we are spending around $125 per person. Other than that- it was awesome!

I have been coming here for years. It’s always been fabulous. This time not so much. I asked for a recommendation and then took it. The bone-in filet. While it was very tender, even with the Kona coffee rub it was still too bland for my taste. And overpriced at $72. This was a “special “. I will continue to go to the restaurant, but not ask for suggestions.

One of the best visits we have had to the Capital Grilleand the bar is always set very high at this price point. All of our steaks were terrific as were the side dishes . It is too bad they do not have the creamed corn available at this time, it is usually the best.

After spending the day at the Boston Marathon in support of a family member, we were looking for dinner. We chose the Capital Grille via Open Table and couldn't have had a better experience. The Marathon Participant needed a meal as well as us. The waiter was exceptional and catered to all our needs. Best Choice of the day!

The only negative comment would be the Hostess Staff needs to be friendly and polite and not self righteous and condescending. Even as a longtime (since first original location opening) regular with reservations their attitude is off putting.

The service and food was excellent! The staff goes out of their way to make every effort to make the experience one that you will come back for. The Chef and staff are in the background but their dedication to every detail for the entire menu is perfect. They repeat this everyday. Great bar selections and service. Wine list is excellent! Great location on Bolyston street with access to many top end stores and a stroll down Newberry street a must. Boston common gardens just a few block away and of course a visit to Boston in the Spring, means a trip Fenway Park with only a 10 minute walk.

The Capital Grille has excellent food and service. The lobster crab cakes are just amazing. Steak and lamb are cooked to perfection and the sides are all delicious. Dessert is excellent as well. Our server was very attentive and a pleasure. We celebrated our son's birthday and had a wonderful and memorable evening! We highly recommend Capital Grille for special occasions!

A group of 8 of us enjoyed an exceptional birthday dinner on 3/30 at the Capital Grille. Upon arrival, everything was absolutely fantastic. Molly, our waitress went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. She is the absolute standard of what a waitperson should be especially at a restaurant as highly regarded as The Capital Grille. Writing as the “birthday girl” I was astonished by the amount of attention and privacy Molly provided. Our food was outstanding with not one mistake/imperfection. Thank you, Capital Grille and Molly. Five stars well deserved.
