Have never had a bad meal here. Just excellent. The service as outstanding yet non-intrusive, an the meals were timed perfectly without a rush feel at all. Would recommend to anyone.

The Capital Grille no longer lives up to its reputation. The steaks there truly ARE mediocre in quality and taste. There are plenty of steak houses out there to choose from, and The Capital Grille deserves to be toward the bottom of a steak lover’s list.

We went on a Sunday evening. It was very busy around 7pm. Staff was excellent. Waiter was terrific (Renzo). It was loud, but that's ok. Food was good , not great. Had steaks. They were decent size, a bit tough, and the sides were average. Not worth the money. I believe there are better steak houses around Boston. Value was just not there. But the service was excellent.

We had an exceptional experience. It was my daughter’s Birthday. Small decorations were placed on the table, she was greeted by several staff and wished happy Birthday. She was given a coupon for an appetizer in her next visit and a tasty dessert plate. The service was outstanding!

For capital grille, it was a very medicre experience. The service was incredibly slow, table didn't fit our party, steaks weren't cooked correctly, table wasn't cleared properly and bread crumbs never cleaned up. Overall food was just ok. Felt like I was at a 3 star restaurant paying 5 star prices

The service was excellent.
The wine was good.
The food was ok.

The medium rare steak was pretty much medium. The garlic shrimp had a lot of Mariana, and a little garlic, like someone was afraid of too much flavor. Also kinda spongy, like someone decided they wanted to err on the side of not poisoning me, and was willing to overcook it to be safe.
The creme brule custard was pretty good under a too thin layer of caramelized sugar.

Reliable choice for a fun and festive dinner. Food always good and menu is just right - lots of choice but. It ridiculously long. Service was good, or great. A little pushy and at times slow (left with no menus for a long period). Do NOT like the wine list on the iPad. I love my iPad but not in a restaurant particularly because it’s difficult to compare and contrast wines, prices, regions, etc scrolling through the device. Should offer a choice.

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.

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.
