The outstanding thing about our meal at the Capital Grille in Lombard was the service. Our waitperson was outstanding, and the support staff was great as well. Everyone was extremely courteous, and the food was excellent, too. Highly recommended.

Having been to several other locations, our initial impression was that it was a little less kept up and the mood was less enthusiastic. We decided to start with a drink at the bar and were greeted pleasantly and the vibe was more upbeat. Always love the fresh chips offered with your cocktails. Proceeded to dinner and loved the attention to detail and the warm reception as we were celebrating an anniversary. Highly recommend the lobster mac and cheese- had never tried it before but on the waiter's suggestion gave it a shot. Would come back just to eat this alone! Top quality food all around.

My Wife had the Lobster Salad. Great presentation - also excellent.

Drastically overpriced for the quality of the food. Our server was phenomenal, but the food was just not worth the price. My husband's steak was room temperature. My sea bass was chewy, slimy, and fishy tasting. We were really disappointed, definitely would not come back.

Chef Mitch I love you and the cooks. It was hubby and I 1st time as a referral from his daughter who resides in Texas. We finally got a chance to go and loved it all from the great service coming in the door to the waiter to the food to small talk with one of the Managers.

We will definitely be back, food was outstanding with texture, heat, sauce choice for the Sea Bass to the steak sauce for the T-bone.

You can't go to the Capital Grille without understanding the expense, but once you do, it's worth every penny. Outstanding in every sense of the word.

Really nothing special. Would definitely go to another restaurant before returning here. Knew it was highly rated and wondered why i had never gone since I live so close and am in the Yorktown Shopping Center frequently. Definitely not worth the money.

As expected the food was great, but the service was also exceptional. Our server was Kara and she was very good. She explained things and answered our questions without being pretentious. When we mentioned we didn't care for the creamed spinach because it had a little too much netmeg for our taste, she took it off the bill.. The restaurant itself is lovely. We sat in one of the smaller rooms which gave us a sense of privacy and was a little more quiet than the rest of the restaurant. The bar was very attractive and while we didn't spend much time there, it looked like a great place to hang out with a few friends for drinks.

The Stoli Doli martini was outstanding. Collectively, our table had the filet, seabass and bone-in veal entrees. All were excellent. Service as usual was great. We go to this location every year for our anniversay, are are never disappointed. They put rose petals and a congratulatory card on the table, and celebrate late with a free dessert and champagne. What a great way to celebrate!

Our party of 4 was seated in the bar - loud, poor ambience - a whole different experience than in the main dining rooms. There should be a differentiation when booking. We have dined here many times before and the wait staff has always been top notch. Tonight we clearly had the “B” staff, the fill in, the backup, whatever - he was downright terrible. Two orders of fish (my husband and my friend) - after taking a few bites - room temp on the outside and it was actually cold (do you serve frozen not fresh fish?) to the touch in the middle. Returned both orders and instead of a fresh, newly cooked piece of fish, you nuked the cold ones in the microwave. They were then served to the wrong guest - my husband got my friend’s fish and vice versus (the fish was recognizable based on the bites that had been taken from them earlier). Of course they didn’t realize this until after a bite or two, then the awkwardness of do you switch or just keep it. Our meals were staggered and we didn’t eat together as a group. You know you’re going to be slammed on V-Day - your staff and kitchen were not prepared. We were given free desserts which was nice but the fish should have been comped as well. An awful experience for $300/couple. You have lost us as customers.

Wonderful Valentine's Day experience, cocktails and superb dinner. We are never disappointed here and celebrate special occasions at this fine restaurant. And when you want to kick it up a notch, you have Andrew serving you...we couldn't ask for better service throughout the evening. Knowledgeable, attentive, and a personality that makes you feel special. We will request Andrew to serve us on our visit to Capital Grille. Andrew, Andrew, Andrew...thank you for a memorable evening.

Gerardo and the staff provided exceptional service. The food was amazing. I had lobster bisque, a tomahawk ribeye and lobster mac oscar style and scalloped potatoes. We shared calamari and creme brulee. Everything was cooked perfectly and delivered to us at the right temperature. There were plenty of leftovers too. We don't dine here as often as we'd like because we live just under an hour away. However, this remains our favorite place to go for steak.

I have been to the capital grille many times as it is my go to lunch place for executive type meetings. I had a fantastic server named Claude yesterday that just knocked it out of the park. My two guests just raved about his customer service and actually offered him a job in our industry. Food was outstanding as always.

Enjoyed our food. Didn’t care for our seats. Right off bar area and loud people at a table near bye. Kinda took away from the evening. Men’s bathrooms were disgusting. Some of woman’s stalls were out of toilet paper so guess they need to not neglect the bathrooms.

It was very crowded when we went, perhaps because it was Restaurant Week. Although our server was attentive, food seemed to take a long time to come out. The salad was almost warm and seemed on the verge of wilting. The steak was great though. The server even brought us an extra dessert for being patient (although we hadn't complained). The one thing that was horrible were the bathrooms. Two of the stalls were completely out of toilet paper, leading the patrons to have to go under the sink to find the extra rolls and service the bathroom themselves. There were dirty paper towels everywhere. Yuck! I'd expect to find that at a fast food restaurant, not a place that is supposed to be fine dining, like Capital Grille. It was disgusting. At those prices, hire an attendant!

The Steaks were great, but I ordered a lobster tail as a side and it was the size of a medium shrimp. They also ran out of the wine we started with, so we had to switch up bottle number two. Beverly, our server was very good.
