We had typically come to this restaurant EVERY year during Restaurant Week for about 5 years in a row. Not sure WHAT happened, but we had not been to this restaurant in 2 years. The food, the service, the attentiveness of the staff is TOP NOTCH!!! It always seems a bit DARK inside which is the ONLY thing that annoys me. Atmosphere might be their goal, but when you can NOT read the menu without a light, it loses something

Went to Capital Grille Chestnut Hill to celebrate our Anniversary. This is the first time i’ve given a rating other than excellent. We were extremely disappointed in our meals. Steaks we very tough, no flavor for the price paid. In years passed when we’ve celebrated Anniversaries or birthdays there we were given a cocktails on the House when we were seated, this year we got nothing, actually didn’t get anything when we were there to celebrate birthdays this past year either. Too bad it will be a while before we go back as this was one of our favorite restaurants especially to celebrate special occasions.

I have always thought of the Capital Grill as our favorite restaurant for special occasions.
This last visit, however, was lacking in food quality , and we were all very disappointed with our meals.
Not sure I will return and I am sad to feel that way .

Tried hard , nice waitstaff, lovely table decoration , complimentary anniversary cheesecake with a candle but there were lots of little slip ups , I’m sorry to say ....
We had to wait and eventually to ask for the wine list .
We had to wait and eventually to ask for refills of water .
The asparagus we ordered didn’t come out with the food.
The tuna tartare was delicious but some bits were very stringy .
There was absolutely no soap in the ladies bathroom for several hours .
The valets didn’t help anyone across the snow ...
Lots and lots of small things that made the whole experience good rather than wonderful .
Not what you expect at a restaurant with this kind of reputation and prices .
Sorry .

The Capital Grille is and will continue to be my “go to” restaurant for special occasions. This particular night it was just off. Service was horrible (slow and rather rude) and my food was cold. I had swordfish. Everybody else had steak and it was great. Sides were also cold. When we wanted coffee, the waiter was nowhere to be found. Not a good night at my favor restaurant.

As usual everything was A+ at the Chestnut Hill location. From the moment we arrived and was greeted by Barbara we knew we were in for a special night! When we arrived at our table it was decorated with rose pedals along with a card wishing us all the best and congratulating us on our anniversary! Our waiter Renzo attended to our every request and even remembered what we had the last time we visited.

First time I’ve eaten there, and probably last. Sides and deserts were excellent ! Service was excellent but I thought steak was overrated and for the price after splitting sides and dessert between 4of us , mashed potatoes,beans and mushrooms, 2pieces of pie ,please , it was nowhere near worth what we paid . Sorry thank you

As usual, the service was excellent and the food was good and at lunch
its a good deal for a high end restaurant. Jill our server is
terrific, friendly and knows what she is doing. Jeff (partner Mgr) also stops
by everybodys table to check if your happy.

I am forever grateful to the team at CG Chesnut Hill.

Booked a table with our favorite server and was looking forward to celebrating my wife’s birthday. Unfortunately, the restaurant was a bit too lively with several tables of loud boors trying to impress their dates. On top of that, a large table of 8 was seated next to us, with one guy screaming so many profanities that other guests up and left. The manager was completely ineffective - instead of throwing the louts out, he hovered next to our table so he could keep an eye on the noise and profanities. This was creepy to say the least and I think the manager was really scared. The evening was ruined to say the least, not just for us, but for several other tables. It was a night that Capital Grille should have compensated the other guests or thrown these people out.

This restaurant is a classic and is consistent— you always know what you will get: a perfectly cooked steak of high quality; potatoes; salad; veggies; and a lovely bread basket. There is a good choice of wines of a wide price range. Our service was a little spotty this particular night, but is usually better. If you want comfort food in a clubby atmosphere— this is the place.

This is our favorite place! We always try other steak houses but in our opinion they don't live up to what we have come to expect with Capital Grille! We always have a great experience. This time around my steak was a little over cooked, but it was still very good and they did offer to rectify it. This was the only time it wasn't 100% perfect. I would absolutely be back! Thank you Capital Grille for helping us celebrate our special occasion!! Very nice complimentary champagne toast and dessert!

Food and service was excellent. The food is always good and served piping hot. This restaurant is always super crowded but somehow the service is on par and good. Highly recommend. The steaks are great but the salmon is excellent too.

We were celebrating a birthday & from the moment we arrived we were treated like vip’s. Our table was sprinkled with confetti & our waiter brought over flutes of champagne. I loved the birthday card from Capital Grille. The meal was wonderful as I anticipated it would be. It ended with a sample of cheesecake & chocolate cake with Happy Birthday written on the dish. I thought they went above my expectations.. highly recommend Capital Grille.
