When I go a traditional steakhouse, I don't expect to be seated next to people dressed like they are going to do yardwork. This place has gone downhill and it is not what Capital Grille once was. The service was extremely slow. The waiter was kind and friendly but not proactive. Except to refill my kids sodas 4 times without checking with me. Finally had to say something to him. The food was mediocre. You would be much better off going to Max Downtown, Flemings, or really anywhere else. This restaurant is no longer "upscale" and we won't be back.

It was my husbands birthday and the table was set up for the occasion. The food and beverages were excellent - everything was cooked perfectly. Plus Nick, our waiter was nice enough to take our picture! At the end of dinner we were surprised with a complimentary dessert too. Overall great dining experience.

We had an amazing experience at Capital Grille last evening for our anniversary. No detail was overlooked during our experience, the valet, professional staff, complimentary drinks and dessert, personal anniversary card, and more made this a very memorable evening. Thank you!

The food was outstanding! The service was ok. The bad part of the night was when you embarrassed my friend Dan Cramer. We split the bill on our credit cards and for his, you swiped the stripe on his credit card instead of using the chip. His card was declined, he has to give another credit card and Dan and his wife were embarrassed and upset. It cast a cloud on our experience.

Service was amazing and very friendly. We were celebrating our anniversary and they made a point to decorate the table and provide a delicious dessert to help us celebrate. The restaurant is beautiful and the ambiance is perfect. The music section was a bit off however. At one point they were playing showtimes and not quite the musical choice we would have preferred for a romantic dinner. However it was such a minimal point compared to the rest of the wonderful food, service, and drinks.

First time going to Capital Grille and definitely won't be our last. From the young gentleman from valet to our wonderful service from our waitress Kiara- everyone was attentive, knowledgeable and absolutely sweet. The food and drinks were delicious; we had the calamari for appetizer and bone in ribeye for dinner with the mash potatoes and lobster Mac and cheese. Everything was fresh and seasoned very well.

We have enjoyed dinners at Capital Grille since they opened in Hartford. The experience is always amazing and the they take care of us each time we have been there, whether a large family gathering or just me and my wife. This afternoon was no different. The staff was great and our server, Rueben was particularly attentive. Always look forward to our experience at Capital Grille!

They went above and beyond to make our anniversary special, and our server Dan was amazing. From the rose petals on the table, the steak was cooked perfect, to the surprise cake and champagne at the end. So glad we chose this place. Will be coming back thank you.

Our friend said “We should have dinner at your favorite steak place.” Only one place came to mind. The Capital Grille. Top notch service, beautiful ambience, and oh yeah the best steak in town. Apps, drinks, and flourless chocolate cake were very good too, as usual.

While not the cheapest option- Capital Grille is certainly the best. The service is outstanding as is the food. One of the best meals, if not the best, in Connecticut.
