Late night dining after concert. Everything was fine, but a little below par on the service and food prep front

Went for lunch. Sat in main dining room and it was very empty on a Friday. Surprised. Waiter didn’t offer any drink other than water… I forgot to order wine with my steak. Filet mignon was well cooked for medium and the creamed spinach was delicious. But my son’s truffle fries did not taste like truffle at all. And they were not crispy. Essentially- they weren’t good. Food was just okay and I guess ambiance was lacking in the main dining room. Not memorable.

We had a wonderful time. It was our first time here and we were celebrating my wife’s birthday. Nick our server was amazing, gave us the best recommendation on wine that complimented what we like. We absolutely loved it there, the food was delicious, best steaks we’ve ever had. And again, Nick made our night even better.

The food and wait staff was great. One suggestion is to do away with the mask wearing for staff - I had to ask several times to repeat something and then still did not hear all of the specials.

A Boston staple but still as fantastic as ever. Our meal was perfection and our server Adnan was top notch. So glad to feel the hustle and bustle of this amazing restaurant again. Our entire meal was delicious and it says a lot that the Managing Partner, Christ Scott has been with this restaurant for over 25 years which is unheard of in the restaurant business. Very well done Capital Grille, can't wait to get back to Boston to visit you again soon as you never disappoint.

The hostesses were rude.
We were there to celebrate my birthday and it was not a good experience. The hostess did not hold the door open and allowed it to close in my face as I was walking inside. We have been to Capital Grill restaurants across the country and usually have a great experience but not at Capital Grill Boston. We were disrespected and found the hostess staff to have a nasty attitude.

Everything was outstanding, which is why we love the CG! Dominic our waiter was especially attentive. We appreciated his preparing a surf and turf for us by combining the sea bass with the sliced filet entrees, as well as his beverage suggestions. Can’t wait to return.

My family and I had the most amazing experience on Saturday evening. It was my daughter's and my birthday... and we were treated like royalty. The food was to die for. My 13 year old daughter was just enamored by being in such a "fancy" place and felt like she was incredibly special. Thank you to the staff and our server who made our night so special. It will be in our memories forever.

Sat at high top in bar area. Place had a nice buzz with lots of activity. Waited several minutes for server who was distracted while taking our drink order. Ordered several appetizers which were average except the lump crab was excellent! Drinks were watered down and not made as we ordered. Server was sort of aloof. Capital Grill in DC, Orlando and Chicago have a different high quality standard for food and drinks. Would NOT go back to CG in Boston.

I have been going to this location for 20 years and I always have an amazing food and service experience. I tell all my friends about how great it is. This past visit the service was great. The food disappointed. The filet was significantly overcooked. The lobster Mac and cheese was dry, the mushrooms were not good and the fries were hot but soggy.

Another fun night at cap. For our group of three, Cap is our meeting place. It’s consistently excellent. Jeremy took great care of us at the bar, and it was good to see Andrew and Domenic, too. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and the truffle fries never disappoint.

My friend and I had such a great time at Cap. Our steaks were cooked perfectly, and sides were excellent, too. The oysters were very fresh as well. I splurged on some of the wines available by Coravin and they didn’t disappoint (a Brunello, and a 2014 Napa cab). Everyone there was wonderful to us as always, including Jeremy, Chuck, Kelly, and Domenic. We did see a very rude customer give a lovely longtime host (I believe Katherine is her name) a hard time over masks, and she handled it with far more grace than I could ever muster.

We enjoyed our food and service - both were exceptional. We left very happy and would definitely go back in the future.

Take note that the restaurant is open and quite noisy. There was a large party next to us and they were extremely loud, drunk, and crude. In no way is that the restaurant's fault, but it did make it difficult to have a normal conversation over them.
