The Capital Grille - Hartford Ratings and Reviews
Delicious and beautifully presented meals for all four of us, incredible service and the added bonus of free valet parking! I would highly recommend this particular Capital Grille realizing they are not equal, I think this is the best one. The only thing I’d like to see different would be the ambiance of the restaurant.. I prefer a cozier feel and a little more light, but that’s not likely to keep us away. Thanks for a wonderful evening with great food and wine!
Waa there w/my spouse. And another couple for an anniversary dinner. Our reservation was for 8 however it was very busy and we weren't able to be seated at the time of our reservation (30min wait). We had drinks at the bar which was not a problem at all and the manager stopped by to apologize for the wait. We were surprised w/2 complimentary desserts whether bc of the wait or bc they knew we were celebrating I'm not sure. Dinner was wonderful, everything cooked to perfection. Waiter was attentive considering how bust it was. Would definitely visit again.
The Brussel sprout salad was the best salad I ever had! The flavors in every bite - just heavenly. Alex was our waiter he was exceptional. The steaks - porterhouse and strip steak - both cooked perfectly, tasty and delicious. We enjoyed our meal and evening immensely.
We were there for our 25th anniversary and Capital Grille did not disappoint! They had rose petals on the table and we were given a complimentary drink, appetizer and a lovely dessert with champagne and to top it off, our waiter took our picture and printed it out- all complimentary! Shea our waiter was great, knowledgeable and friendly and the food was delicious. We had a lovely evening.
I took my wife to Capital Grille for her birthday. The table was set special for her with a card and glitter paper confetti. Our waitress was great, with suggestions and patience giving us time to celebrate. They surprised us with a special “on the house desert” and champagne.
The meal was exceptional and the evening special.
This restaurant has consistently perfect food no matter the location. We shared the large ribeye and a couple of sides that were all perfectly cooked. The restaurant always pays attention to a special occasion and creates a lovely atmosphere. Our table was decorated for our anniversary and there was a hand-written card waiting for us when we arrived. Capital Grille is a MUST for a great dining experience!
We are frequent visitors to the Capital Grille and we especially like the service and the steaks. However, this was the worst experience I have ever had. First of all the service was extremely slow. It was not a problem with the waitress from what I could tell, but the bar and the kitchen were excessively slow. We waited so long for our appetizers that the five us ate more bread than usual. The wait for dinner was even longer. Two of us ordered steaks cooked medium rare and they were practically raw and had to be sent back. On top of that, I could not use the valet parking because they were so backed up, I could not stay on the street for fear of being hit so we parked in the garage. I mentioned this when I came in and told them I parked in the garage, but they responded, "I'm sorry and we don't validate." The parking was only $5 and they could have done something to reimburse us. It is sad that we had such a lousy experience in Hartford. We won't be back anytime soon.
Once again, The Capitol Grill does not disappoint. Food is cooked to perfection. Good portions for fine dining. Excellent service. It was my birthday and I felt special from the moment I came in the door. Our table had happy birthday confetti on it and a hand-written card from the staff. From appetizers to the surprise dessert, we had a delightful meal. Such a treat to dine here.
We went to Capital Grille to celebrate our anniversary. We told the restaurant beforehand using OpenTable. They were outstanding. They had a card waiting for us, and gave us a free mini drinks before and after dinner, along with a free dessert sampler. Our waitress, Brittany, was extremely good. She took the time to get to know us, gave us good suggestions, and really made our day special. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.
We (two couples) decided to grab a bite before a concert. Great food, attentive wait staff and a quick turnaround made it perfect. Located in a nice area in Hartford- I could see going back to try the other restaurants on the block. Overall great experience!
Overall the meal was not bad and I should have known better since I've been her a couple of times before. The wine markup at this restaurant is so ridiculous that it's really beyond belief. Some bottles here are higher than the best manhattan restaurants.
We dine out often in high end restaurants and spend a significant amount on wine. Its really no fun when you see a $150 bottle of wine that you can buy for $45-50.
Will not be returning.
Celebrated my husband's birthday and we were treated like royalty! Brittany was so attentive to us and made sure our experience was tremendous. The food was fabulous from the apps to dessert. This is our favorite restaurant in the Hartford area to celebrate.
