    Another pleasant evening at Capital Grill in Chicago. My martini was perfect and as always, so were the steaks. We love the clubby and sophisticated atmosphere in the dining room. If you have not tried the mash potatoes yet - get them next time you are there - love having the skins mixed in! All the sides are good sized to be able to share.

    Attentive service and outstanding food. The steak was incredibly tender, perfectly seasoned, and cooked just right the first time…one of the best I’ve ever had! For what you get, it was absolutely an incredible value - I’d have paid twice as much;)

    Great choice if you are looking for a steak or special dinner in Chicago - I have been a few times in the last few years and the food does not disappoint. I very much prefer being seated in the main dining area; this last visit we were in a side room that felt too closed in, and seemed more appropriate for larger private parties. I would have enjoyed the ambiance of the main dining room more. Great wine list as well. Valet is great and timely!

    THANK YOU so much for providing a memorable experience for my graduation lunch. The food was great and the ambiance is very upscale. Marie was so personable and made sure we were having a good time. The table was decorated with “congrats grad” confetti. Super perfect and would not have had it any other way. Missing a few intricate details here, but if I could leave more stars, I would. Definitely will be back and can’t wait to dine in over the summer. I’m so happy to have tried you all for the first time! ❤️

    This place is like home and the staff is like family. When your “regular” waiter texts you a pic of your new wine locker and congratulates you, that says it all. From hostess to bartender to the wait staff to their assistants—hugs, handshakes, fist bumps, and greetings of welcome…every time I’m here. I fell in love with CG because of the food and service, but I’ll never leave because of the way they treat me. Simply the best.

    The waiter came over many times during the meal to ask if we were finished when it was obvious we were not. We felt pressured to finish our meal. At $230 for two people this was not the service I expected.
