    I dined at this location with my friend on a Friday night! Rachel was amazing and went above and beyond for us!! I met the head chef Patrick who made us a delicious amuse! The manager Adam also came over to the table and checked in to make sure everything was going smoothly and made sure we were taken care of every step of the way! Our server david was absolutely phenomenal and was so attentive and did not miss a single step. He also was great to talk to and was super funny and professional. He really added something to our experience! From the moment we walked in to the moment that we left, everything was absolutely exceptional. It was definitely a night that my friend and I will always remember! Thank you!!!

    Overall experience is excellent as Mike waited on us and very knowledgeable about the South African Lobster tails featured on the menu as entree or pairing with other meat suggestions. My only complaint is the cream spinach, little crunchy and salty. Would recommend restaurant for any occasion 😋

    Reservation was at 8:45. We arrive at 8:48 & nobody comes up to the hostess stand. Somebody, I’m assuming the “ manager “ comes up and says “we’re closed” no introduction or apology or anything. It was a birthday dinner & I was able to book for 8:45 on open table. All of a sudden “our computers are down so we couldn’t get reservations” no sincere apology or anything after we had been waiting for someone to at least say hello to us. I’ve been to multiple capital grilles and this has by far been my worst experience. Everyone was a majority, & we were the people of color that walked in and there was ZERO sense of urgency to help us. The way we were treated was the worst service I’ve ever received and he also mentioned us going up the street to another steakhouse that was already closed. Worst capital grille I have EVER been to.

    The setting is great. We were there for lunch and found the range of options adequate. I enjoyed the clam chowder. We split a Ceasar salad which had too little dressing and thus, too subtle. Service brought more dressing on the side and it addressed out concern. We also split the tenderloin sliders and were delighted that they cooked each tenderloin to our specific wishes.

    We were celebrating my husband’s birthday which was two days after Valentine’s Day . The hostess gave me a long stem red rose and there was a birthday card at the table with confetti and little pieces of candy (very thoughtful). I enjoyed my food however my husband order was incorrect. They waitress offered to replace it but we declined as service was a little slow to begin with. Overall we enjoyed ourselves.

    We have been celebrating our special occasions here for many many years now and they do not disappoint ….! This time was no different, we had to cancel our Valentine’s Day plans due to a last minute family emergency and they were able to accommodate us the very next day with no hassles. The service, food and ambience were perfect. Thank you again and see you soon!

    Awesome! Lovely first Valentine’s Day dinner as a newly married couple! My wife and I got engaged at Capital Grille June 2022, and were married in Boston September of 2023. Lovely experience, fantastic service and food is always amazing! We’ll definitely be back for many more married couple experiences lol.
