We have eaten here as a couple and had good service but when we brought the kids we received mediocre-poor service. Also, all 4 of us were relegated to the bathroom after we ate there this last time. I think we won't be visiting again. I recommend going somewhere nice in the city for the money.

The Capital Grill serves some of the best food my wife and I have ever eaten. We had the crab with lobster cakes appetizer which was truly heavenly for seafood lovers. My wife had the pan-seared sea bass and I had the scallops and asparagus. We shared some sauteed spinach and it all was a terrific combinations. The down-side is that even without any alcoholic beverages the bill was $85 per head.

We finally got together with our parents for a birthday dinner. We chose Capital Grille because we knew the food and service would be quality. Plus, my father has trouble with hearing and they are able to accommodate a request for a quieter table.
CG is pricey; you can find similar food quality for less, but when you factor in service and their attention to detail... CG is worth every penny.

As a recurring customer I’m biased but the food and service was great . It was a little louder than last time but not outrageously loud. I recommend this restaurant to anyone who is open to paying a bit extra for great food and service. Can’t wait to come back!!

I found the wait time for everything to be an epic fail. There was no acknowledgement of delays or remedies offered for same. I couldn’t believe this was the same restaurant I have repeatedly paid visits to in downtown Chicago. Lombard should change their name. Grade: D
