This was a special occasion dinner and the restaurant went out of its way to make it truly an exceptional evening. From the very personalized greeting upon entering, to the handwritten card on the table, everything was done to perfection to make it a warm and friendly evening. The service was impeccable with helpful guiding tips and the food was prepared to perfection; absolutely delicious! This has now become our go to place for those special and even not so special evenings!

even though the food and service was excellent, the prices were over the top expensive. I cannot justify the cost of the ala carte menu for a return visit.

Capital Grille was fantastic, the food was great We had the seafood tower , it was so delicious. Also the sea bass and tuna dishes were outstanding. The service was perfect. It was our anniversary and they had rose petals on the table for us. We also received a complimentary delicious dessert and a champagne toast We highly recommend the Capital Grill !

We enjoyed a great meal at Capital Grille last week before going to Cirque du Soleil. The food was perfect! My highly critical -- and very well-traveled -- dinner companion said the scallops and sauce were the best he'd ever had. I practically licked the plate after finishing my tenderloins and lobster tail. The beet salad was wonderful and the bread was to die for. Frank was our waiter and he was very attentive and very helpful with meal descriptions. He also made sure we got to Cirque on time AND gave me some of that scrumptious bread to take home. I really appreciated the calorie counts on the food menu (appreciated it less on the drink menu) as it turned out that what I really wanted was less calories than what I thought I should have! CG, as everyone knows, isn't exactly budget friendly, but we definitely got what we paid for, which makes it a very good deal. Thanks for a great evening!

Thank you to Capital Grille for making our birthday/belated Father’s Day dinner extra special. Every single special touch was very much appreciated. Thank you to our server Martha and to those who assisted with the very nice service. Every meal was fantastic.

We could not have asked for a nicer evening. We are so glad that we can count on Capital Grille - Hartford to celebrate our special occasions.

The Capital Grille is an Outstanding restaurant. The service is impeccable and the food so yummy and delicious. We celebrated our 31st anniversary and they threw in 2 glasses of bubbly, a tasty sample from the chef and dessert that was absolutely incredible. We LOVE this place and highly recommend it for a fun night of delicious food, drinks and service like no other place! Thank you David for having such high standards and running this place like you own it! Thank you Lizbeth for your impeccable service! We are grateful!

Continuing the tradition we started last year, my wife and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary (June 11) at The Capital Grille. The server we had last year, Shea, was there. We thanked him again for making last year’s visit so memorable we knew we had to do it again.

There are only two things I can think to write sincerely this year: (1) You can’t improve on perfection. Our meals were outstanding, and we were treated like the royalty we most definitely are not. (2) Our server, Luis, was every inch the gracious, attentive gentleman. We shook his hand and thanked him for making our celebration enjoyable and memorable.

Anne and I aren’t wishing time away. But we’re looking forward to another evening at The Capital Grille on our third anniversary. There aren’t many sure things in the world. But The Capital Grille is one of them.

We went to Capital Grill to celebrate my parents’ 40th wedding anniversary. I had denoted the occasion in my reservation. 4 of the 6 person party had never been and they were completely wowed by the experience. The Capital Grill and our server Jordan really rolled out the red carpet treatment for the occasion with several complimentary offerings (champagne to toast, a lobster ceviche, another toasting drink to accompany the dessert). The service was exceptional. Jordan has a wonderful personality and if he could have pulled up a chair and dined with us we would have loved it! He was Informative, made great recommendations, and connected with our party. My parents truly felt like VIPs. As for the meal, the food was outstanding. All who had never dined there commented that it was the best steak they ever had. Yes it is pricey but you absolutely get what you pay for (and more). A huge thank you to the Capital Grill team for making my parents’ anniversary a memorable one!

This past weekend my husband and inlaws went to dinner to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The night was perfect! The staff bent over backwards to make sure the food was to our liking and they made the night so wonderful with the little touches they did to make my husband’s birthday memorable! Hats off to the staff and management. I was still talking about it the next day. We are so appreciative for the outstanding work conducted by the two managers working. I believe their names were Nick and Kevin. Talia was our waitress and she did an outstanding job. Thank you Capital Grille!!!

We have always had a good experience at Capital Grille - We were a bit disappointed, however on 5/11 at the Hartford location. Reservation was for 8:30pm We arrived on time and were told tables were running 15min late - no problem. We went to the bar for some excellent drinks. At 9:15 I checked with the hostess about our table and was informed we would be next and we were seated 5 min later. While I certainly understand that sometimes seating takes a little longer I feel it would not have been out of order to offer a drink or appetizer for our 45min wait especially as we spent $300+ at dinner. I just would have felt our business and time were appreciated. Other than that, it was a very nice evening.

It was a good time my daughter had just graduated. They go above and beyond to make it special. But I gotta say the food was not up to the expectations I was expecting. But maybe it was an off night for the cook.
