Service was very slow. Took a while before our server took our drink order. Too much time between courses. Waiter forgot two of the sides we ordered. Had to ask for our water glasses to be refilled. Had to get up and find our server to ask for our check.
I expect a much higher level of service at a high end steakhouse.
The lunch was delicious as always. It is impressive that The Capital Grill always serves the Birthday person a beautiful dessert platter for her (in my case) and her husband. It is the perfect restaurant to celebrate any special occasion!
Another great meal at Capital Grille. Celebrate my birthday. A few special touches to make the evening enjoyable.
Miranda is great. Delicious food
I don’t know which to review the food, the server or the service. They were all number one, our server Renato was really pleasant, fast and friendly. Food was hot and amazing and we didn’t have to wait for a long time for our cocktail and appetizers since these days this happens a lot.
Retirement dinner after 18 plus yrs of faithful Servive
Service was absolutely AMAZING. Bu I mainly go to a restaurant for the food & the food here is horrific. The shrimp cocktail was disgustingly old, the steak was cooked perfectly but the meat was old! I don’t know if their food is this bad because their clientele is mostly an older crowd! Just because they may have lost their taste buds that doesn’t mean they deserve crap food! Overall, Capital Grill is now in the same category as Cheesecake Factory for me.
As always, we had a wonderful dining experience at the Capital Grille.
Expensive but consistent, high quality and very tasty food brought with high touch service.
I have had a lot better experiences there.
Very noisy changed waiter after ordered drinks.
Food was just ok, salad seemed premade.
I have been many times to this location and have loved it. Last night was different. The person I went with ordered her filet medium and it was very over cooked and there was fat and it was chewy on the filet. My steak was good. Aside from that the amazing bread basket that I had talked up to my date for a week was transformed into a less than average bread basket. I felt horrible as I would have gone elsewhere if I had known that the bread basket was changed to something that I believe is not really aligned with the amazing restaurant capital grille has been. Underestimating this is really not good.
Great time as always at Capital Grill Chestnut Hill
My daughter and I enjoyed a special lunch at the Chestnut Hill location. All I can say is why did it take me so long to visit!! I love this restaurant. Excellent menu. Superb service and an ambiance that I could stay in forever. The staff were very kind to us. Our server, Chee was so knowledgeable and friendly. He kept us happy for the whole visit. I really cannot wait to return very soon!
It was my cousin’s first visit and Captial Grille didn’t disappoint. Food was amazing and the service was exceptional. Jose treated us like royalty and all his recommendations were spot on. My cousin’s husband birthday is something he won’t forget anytime soon.
Service, food and ambiance were all up to the level of the Capital Grille experience.
Dinner and service was exceptional. Highly recommend.
We were looking forward to celebrating our anniversary. When we entered the restaurant we were shocked to see the bar where there were three to four deep with no one wearing masks. The noise level was so high that the hostess and host were unable to hear us.
Fortunately we were escorted to the wine room in the back of the restaurant. It was wonderful. It was quiet and intimate. We were very happy. The two waitresses we had serving us were wonderful. I felt sorry for them because the food they served had many issues as the night progressed.
The lobster bisque was very thick and lacked the smoothness one is accustomed to. The Caesar salad was dry and they forgot the anchovies. The waitress was kind to bring some sardines as we finishing the salad. We explained to her that anchovies were salted fillets, not whole fish. The steak was the biggest disaster.
It came to the table laden with grease. The waitress promptly offered a fresh one. They the manager, we assumed, approached the table to explain it was butter. He offered to flip it on the grill to get rid of the butter. We said ok. The next trip to the table was a burnt steak that tasted like charcoal. At this point, the guests at the two adjoining tables remarked that their steak and lamb chops were also burnt. We declined to accept the burnt steak and a different cut of beef was ordered. This steak was much better.
Throughout it all the two waitresses were very attentive and polite. We were surprised that the manager tried to salvage the first steak by asking us to accept a clearly burnt steak.
The evening ended with us making friends with the two other couples as if we had bonded in battle. We had a lot of fun with these individuals . A nice anniversary cake was presented to us.
We had an anniversary that we won’t forget. We will not be back to celebrate any other occasions at Capitol Grille and we will not be recommending it.
Went there for my husbands bday. They put confetti on the table which was a very nice touch. The food was amazing and steak is perfectly cooked for what we temperature you want. Also he got a complimentary dessert. Love the decor. Very old school.
Amy provided excellent service.
Our server, Jose, was wonderful.
Bone in filet was not seasoned enough.
The best Our favorite. Service and food is always excellent.
The Capital Grille is our go to for all special occasions and as usual, it did not disappoint. This night we celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary. My Porcini rubbed Ribeye was fantastic and cooked a perfect medium rare. Unfortunately my husband’s bone in filet mignon was over cooked but the flavor was still so good that he chose not to send it back. Thank you for another memorable dining experience!
Great food and drinks. The ribeye was cooked just the way we wanted and the lobster Mac n cheese was perfect like always
We were not made aware of the specials. (We learned about them from the table next to us)
The valet rode up on the curb with my vehicle and severely scratched 2 rims.
The restaurant made our grandson’s 15th birthday very special from the greeting at the door, to the special menu, and the dessert. Our waiter Jose was top notch. Lovely evening. Thank you
Had a wonderful evening celebrating our anniversary. Food was exquisite. Service was excellent. Everyone was very professional--just what you want in a high end restaurant. We were nicely surprised by a special desert for our anniversary. Thank you for a memorable evening!
Always enjoy the Cap Grille-excellent steak, nice ambience and excellent service..
love this place....the special margaritas are awesome...oysters, tenderloin, lamb chops...all worth the money....we like sitting at bar....!
Really mediocre. Service was surprisingly aloof. Not awful but not worth it overall.
We always choose the Capital Grille, Chestnut Hill, to celebrate our special occasions. The food is always great, the service is impressive and the atmosphere is lovely. Our waitress, Amy, was one of the best!
Great dining experience especially so because of the wonderful server, Sebastian.
Wonderful dinner with great service ,

Had a great time, service was great and the food was excellent
