Went there for our 5 years anniversary, and previously for our 3rd. The time we spent as soon as we stepped in blossomed and the fragrant vibes we got from the establishment did not disappear until 30 min after leaving. The effects of the great service and dinner we had were everlasting.

Moe the server at the Chestnut Hill location was wonderful! He made sure that my friend had an amazing evening for her birthday by accommodating us to a private room (which came to our surprise cause we had requested a booth). The service was wonderful, the food was really good quality, the environment was great. No complaints. I’ve received the best service every time I’ve gone to the Chestnut Hill location with my boyfriend or with friends. Definitely a place I highly recommend overall!

I was there to experience their Wagyu & Wine event... the burger I got came out with different things wrong and had to go back twice. My friend decided to wait before eating but they just made an extra burger instead so all food was hot together. They discounted our bill because of all the trouble, which we genuinely appreciated and did not expect. Service was amazing, attentive and friendly.

Capital Grille Chestnut Hill you have outdone yourselves! We had a day planned for our 25th anniversary but due to the weather we had to cancel it. At the last minute we made a reservation here at the Capital Grille and we are so glad we did! Literally within an hour we made the reservations and were welcomed with a beautiful handwritten note wishing us a Happy Anniversary! Our table was covered with rose petals and we were greeted by our waiter with glasses of champagne! We had a lovely and delicious dinner and it was topped off with a customized dessert plate with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate!! I can’t think of a better way to start another 25 years with my husband. Thank you!!

Unfortunately not a good experience. It was a business dinner and the service was non existent. Never came to table to ask if we wanted another drink nor fill up our waters. When dessert time came our guest had to ask for menu. Also when time to pay, we had to get her attention instead of he coming to us. I am used to first class service at Capital Grille and was very surprised and disappointed.

We had a great lunch. Service was attentive, but allowed us to linger and talk. The atmosphere is calm and attractive. I will definitely return.

My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary. If you let them know in advance the waitstaff make a point of wishing you a happy anniversary - a nice touch. The interior has an English country estate feel with dark wood paneling, etc. We were seated at a cozy booth for two. Our server was a little quirky but in a nice way. The complimentary bread basket was delicious as were our main courses of steak (ribeye and NY strip) and sides for sharing (potatoes au gratin and asparagus). Finally, we were treated to a decadent, complimentary creme brûlée with "Happy Anniversary" stenciled in chocolate on the plate. I was a bit surprised by the noise level but it was a busy Saturday night. We've been to Capital Grille before and know it's overpriced but the quality and service help to make up for it. Overall, a very good dining experience!

Had the regular cheeseburger, with truffle fries, cooked medium. For the first time in ages asking medium cooked burgers, it was exactly as requested. Delicious patty, with a ton of taste.
One of the best burgers around in Boston, possibly the best I tasted.

Pear salad, and mushroom and brussel sprout side orders were excellent. That said, one sirloin ordered medium rare arrived more than medium, second sirloin ordered medium arrived well done. Also, had to order cappuccino twice. Valet left premises before 10:15PM so we fetched our car in the rain. May try again....

Issues with the steak at a steak house. 1st was burnt, and the 2nd overcooked. Waiter said the Manager “knew” and that’s why he came over to ask if I wanted a new one. Shouldn’t need 3 steaks to get it right at a steakhouse. Disappointing.

When you want an expertly prepared steak, amazing ambiance, and impeccable service there is only one place to go - The Capital Grille! There is a reason this location in Chestnut Hill remains packed night after night. We had tried other steakhouses in the area and nobody holds a candle to CG CH. Steaks are always cooked to perfection, sides are generous and delicious, and they even have a separate gluten free menu. Not only do they have the GF menu, but the servers are knowledgeable and can explain every dish in detail. Always a great experience and of course we will be back!

Schyler really works hard to make your dining experience enjoyable. Apart from his great professional service, his food and wine pairings based on his suggestions were excellent. Definitely ask for him.
