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.

Celebrated with my mom and my sister for her Halloween Birthday on Saturday night. Love the atmosphere and was great to see Joe (waiter). He is so personable and remembered me from last time I was there.
Food as usual was terrific.

 (San Francisco)·Dined on October 23, 2017

This is unfortunate, but for a steak house one expects the steak to be cooked as ordered.
Two different dates we received our steak overcooked by more than a little. The first steak was ordered rare and a special request to be "true" to the rare was asked for politely. The steak arrived Medium Well. The second dining experience we ordered medium rare and received a well done steak. When we finally got the replaced steak it was more than 20 minutes later. This makes no sense at all. The manager was apologetic, but that does not change the entire dining experience for the table in any way. So we cannot recommend this restaurant until they hire a chef.

Food is always great there but the noise level has gotten even worse I think or I have gotten older and find it worse...Both are probably true. You can't get a better steak anywhere but you have to be prepared to talk pretty loudly if you want to have a conversation.

I celebrated my birthday at the Capital Grille. The staff gave us a private table in the Wine Room, so it was quiet. The service was perfect, the food was delicious as usual and the special dessert was a delectable surprise. We even left with a gift card to come back to enjoy some calamari at a later date. We will definitely return!

how about his? anything you want, it offers.... the managment (jeff, steve, heather etc.. along with the wait staff Joe Jill Moe ... you can't ask for better... the hostess Barbara is great.. even your valets guys are on the ball... Chef is very accommodating for our family food allergies.. BUT I am not happy with the new menu which adds Almonds , Pistachios , and all the added nuts to it....
Very disappointed with that. My son has a highly deadly allergy to these items and it makes dining uncomfortable for us. If we don't emphasize the level of danger for him it can get overlooked ... but your management team have actually gone in the kitchen and oversaw the preparation of his food. We just hate to put people out because so many nuts were added to the menu...

Overall experience was good, but for almost $300 for two people, I expected to be wowed a bit more. The ribeye was very mediocre. Harry Carey's Italian Steakhouse in Chicago is the best I've had and this wasn't close. The In Fashioned and Lobester Mac & Cheese were fantastic, service was perfect, but the main dishes left a bit to be desired.

We returned to the Capital Grille to celebrate a work accomplishment; our night there exceeded our expectations. Our server, Sean, was the consummate professional whose outstanding service and pacing made the evening very special and memorable. From the details of the smattering of glittery celebratory stars on the tablecloth when we arrived to the chef's attention to very serious food allergies, the evening could not have been more perfect. The iPad at table side made the selection of wine very easy. My husband had a wedge salad and, for the main course, beef tenderloin with lobster which were mouth watering and beautifully presented. The modified heirloom tomato and field green salad was delicious as was the 10 ounce filet mignon. We shared French green beans and tomatoes as well as wild mushrooms which were both prepared perfectly. For dessert my husband had a variety of delectable treats presented with a chocolate 'Congratulations' on the plate. I had a bowl of fresh, mouth watering berries. Although the restaurant was extremely crowded, the noise level was perfect and never once interfered with our special evening out. In short, the food and the ambiance are what make Capital Grille an outstanding restaurant; the exceptional service is what turns the evening into a very memorable occasion.

Always a great experience here. Came for my boyfriend's birthday and was seated at a table covered in birthday confetti! Our waiter, Bao, gave us plenty of time to check out the cocktail menu and then respected our time by not rushing us to order too quickly. Wedge salad was a great start and steaks were seasoned and cooked perfectly. We saved some room for dessert but brought the leftovers home! We will be back!

Good dinner for a special occasion. Food was good. Service was good (they brought a nice complimentary dessert for the couple celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary). But the place is under construction essentially. The bar is a construction zone, and it is cramped with the blocking off of certain sections. With a high end place like Cap Grille, I thought it would be a nice courtesy to at least forewarn guests that the place is in a bit of disarray. In general, I love the Capital Grille, but I would stick to the Burlington location until construction is over. Give it til November 2017 to be safe. And I noticed that they gave me a different year on the bottle of wine I requested. Someone needs to pay attention to what is available on the wine list and wine fridge. I didn't send the bottle back as it was a business situation, but it just felt a little bait and switchy.

Going early brought the noise level down
However if not ordering alcohol, wait staff seems to "blow you off".
Calamari excellent but a bit too much for two to split. The portobello ribeye has a bit too much balsamic vinegar for my husbands taste, should have gone with the Kona rub a much better flavor with the steak.
Planning on going back next Friday with friends.
