Seated in the bar area in a booth and it was very loud! The service was excellent. We had the special of surf and turf and it was delicious and perfectly cooked but our sides were not up to the expected quality. The creamed spinach was dry, the asparagus was blackened and tough instead of grilled and the au gratin potatoes were overcooked! I certainly did not expect anything but perfection! We also had calamari and Caesar salads which were outstanding.

Wonderful place to go for a special event! Our server (s) were very attentive and we couldn't have had a lovelier time. Salad was my only complaint. Just didn't like the grapes/radish combo and dressing was just ok.

This restaurant is my goto place for celebrating birthdays. Their lunches are great value and really delicious. You always get a free dessert for the birthday girl/boy. I am never unhappy with my meal and the parmesan truffles fries are the best.

My wife and I both had the Filet Mignon, and as usual, the meat was tender and delicious. This particular evening "Katie" was being trained as a server. Her teacher was Schyler. The two of them combined to provide wonderful service and added a lot of humor and pleasure along the way.

It was my birthday and although I didn't expect it, I received extra special attention. Who doesn't need a little of that from time to time? Matthew provided *excellent* service and ensured everything came out perfectly, on time, and kept the entire experience lovely!

Birthday Celebration for Spouse and Father. We feel Capital Grille and Newton is our home away from home. Denise barbara and Jeffrey do a phenomenal job and welcoming all of us to the restaurant which makes us feel like we’re going to a friends home. The food the ambience is spectacular and always consistently delicious.

We have always loved steaks at capital grille. This experience wasn’t very good. Ordered the bone in rib eye and they just couldn’t cook it to the way requested. It came back overdone - twice. And they brought the second steak back to table in like 3 mins - which wouldn’t have been possible to cook a new one that fast. We were disappointed with the quality. Service was excellent. Maybe it was just an off night? Not sure but when you pay that much - you definitely expect more!

Fantastic food and service in a lovely dining room. It was our Anniversary (which apparently I had indicated on the reservation) and they made it very special: decorations on the table , complimentary desert and champagne! Would highly recommend this pace for any celebration!

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.
