We went to celebrate our son's birthday. He was greeted by name when we came in and they had a birthday card at the table. At the end of the meal, they brought out small bites of flourless chocolate cake and cheesecake with berries.
I love the lamb chops at Capital Grill and they did not disappoint. Others had the rib eye and the chicken. All were delicious. The service cannot be beat here and we will definitely be back.

I had the bone-in filet. It was flavorless. My wife had the lobster and tenderloin and loved it. Wasn’t worth $250!
$17.50 for a Bombay on the rocks?

My only suggestion is have the wait staff offer to add your valet to your bill so you dont have to find an ATM to get cash out.

My wife and I enjoyed an Easter brunch at Capital Grille- Downtown Chicago. Our waiter, Ralph was great. Ralph made sure that our food including our cappuccinos were prepared correctly. My wife had the lobster and I had the steak with fried egg. Both were great. The only downside was our table was located in a remote area with limited views of the restaurant. Otherwise, it was a good experience.

I picked the Capital Grille to provide my daughter and teenage granddaughter a special, delicious and elegant dining experience for their birthdays. And the restaurant came through with flying colors. Our filet mignon & lobster tails were perfect. Even my well-done steak was juicy and tender - a rarity for me when dining out. The special touches such as a birthday card and birthday desserts made my girls smile. But it was the staff - from reception to the server and bus man- that really topped this birthday celebration with their friendliness and ultimate professionalism. They even made sure we were done in time to get to the theatre. Thank you, everyone at Capital Grille.

The food was good as expected - but swordfish needed some seasoning. The service was very attentive but not intrusive. Pleasant evening.

Great food. Server was awkward. He just shouldn’t be a server at an upscale restaurant.

Also, really thought they should have Luxardo cherries to go with a Manhattan.

It was my son’s birthday and they made it even more special with a hand-written Bday card and confetti at the table. We celebrated with a complimentary glass of champagne as well as desert. The steaks were great and the truffle Parmesan fries were to die for. The chocolate espresso cake was divine! Highly recommend the restaurant - great food, outstanding attention to detail by the staff and great service.

In a city that is known for its steakhouses, this is still the best of the best. The best beef. The best service by a long shot. And even for a high-end ala carte steakhouse, the best value. Every now and again I stray because there are a number of the national chains with locations here that I think do a very good job. And there are some pretty good local Chicago-only outfits too. But in Chicago specifically, there’s nobody that holds a candle to these guys by a very large margin, especially the St Clair location. Consistently excellent.

What a fabulous experience. Our outstanding server Valerie was on top of everything from the moment we sat down to the moment we walked out the door. The food was delicious, the atmosphere is classic yet warm and inviting. Our birthday celebration culminated with a champagne toast with dessert. I would highly recommend the Malbec by the glass, perfecto!

Our waiter was so amazing! Very kind and attentive. He made the evening notable for my husband and I. The food was great but I have to say again, the service was most memorable. It's not hard to find a good steak in Chicago but it's not as easy to find great service. Capital Grille definitely delivered. The dining room was also very nice and great for a romantic date with your love. Drinks were equally exceptional. We will definitely dine at Capital Grille again when in the area. Thank you for a great night!
