The service is beyond reproach, the waiter was accommodating, attentive, and engaged. The meal was outstanding, the atmosphere professional. The restaurant is the perfect place for any special occasion, celebration, or a bit of self-indulgence. A perfect evening of dinning, conversation, and sterling service.

We love going to the Capital Grille for special occasions. This was to celebrate my 65th birthday and my friend's 45th anniversary coming to America from Greece. Coincidence that our waiter (Nikitas) was also from Greece and we made a nice connection. Nikitas was fantastic and made sure everything we ordered was as we liked it. Filet mignon was tender and delicious as always. Everything was fine until the table adjoining us filled in with noisy customers. Oh well. Slightly tight quarters. We will return for another special occasion.

The food was very good. The place was loud and tables are close together.
Our server was distracted by a large group near us and was not very attentive.
The food outweighed all this as the steak and dessert were out of this world!

Hi - we love it here and it is always delicious. Tara was great at the bar but food was not cooked to my liking at all even when I sent it back. Did not know NY strip had a bone in this and did not cook properly - way too red for me.

We came to the Capital Grille to celebrate our anniversary. The food was excellent, everything I ate tasted great and was cooked just right. The service was excellent, water glasses constantly filled, rolls replenished if requested, everything came to the table in a timely fashion. The extra attention given to us in recognition of our anniversary was icing on the cake, pun intended. It was also restaurant week and we were able to take advantage of that great deal. Overall it was an extremely enjoyable and memorable anniversary dinner and we will definitely dine here again.

We had early reservations at 5:15, so the dining room was almost empty. It was restaurant week so we took advantage. I had chowder, which was good, my partner had a salad he said was fresh. We each had sirloin, one Kona crusted. They were cooked to a perfect medium rare as requested. The meat was thick, tender, and flavorful. Just a great steak. The menu indicated that it came with two sides, but upon ordering we were told it was a choice of 1...which I thought was a bit of a cheat. It was a very small portion, not enough for two to share per usual Capital Grill sides. Dessert was fine, chocolate cake and crepe brûlée. Service was a bit rushed, but it was restaurant week and over the years we’ve come to expect lesser service at that time.

The wedge salad was crisp and delicious. The thick-cut bacon on the salad was perfectly cooked and the bone-in dry aged 14oz NY strip was juicy and tender. Amazing meal.

Very disappointed with our dinner recently at the Chestnut Hill location. The service was great, but the food has significantly decreased in quality. We chose the dine out menu, which is usually great. The filet was probably about 2-3 inches in size. I asked for medium rare and it came well done and burnt on the edges. The sides to share were more than half the size as we have had in the past and was really only enough for one person. Unfortunately, we will not be back.

Although we dined here during the Dine Out Boston week, the menu choices were very good, and the food (especially the NY strip steak) was excellent and well prepared. Having eaten in a competitor's restaurant across the street 3 days earlier, I have to say the value and quality of the meal at The Capital Grille was vastly superior.

Top notch service, and amazing food. The kona crusted steak is to die for as well as the crab oscar filet. I would also say the clam chowder is a gold standard to how a chowder should be made.

Food was excellent - waitress seemed to lose interest once we didn't deviate from the Dine Out Boston menu - had to ask for bread. We love the opportunity to visit these restaurants during restaurant week because it gives us the opportunity to visit local restaurants that our budget would otherwise not allow. Overall the experience was a great one - thanks Capital Grille!

We chose to do Restaurant Week and ordered the steak option. Having been to this restaurant many times, I do not feel the quality of the steak was the same as on the regular menu. It would have been a great value if it was the same steak we have had in the past.

Sky was our server and he was fabulous! Our visit was during restaurant week and there were 2 birthday celebrations next to us, thus the noise level being even more elevated. Our reservation was at 7 and we did not get seated until 7:25. I would return to the Capital Grille but may opt for a larger location.
