The Capital Grille - Hartford Ratings and Reviews
All around, this was an exceptional experience! Our table was decorated with roses and a card from Capital Grille wishing us a Happy Anniversary. On top of that, our waiter, Alex Talbot took a photo of us and gave us a copy in a paper frame at the end of the night. This was an awesome and unexpected touch! Additionally, we were served a delicious dessert on the house! Our waiter, Alex was absolutely fantastic! The restaurant was especially busy due to Restaurant Week but we never felt rushed and we received above and beyond service. We love Capital Grille :)
The food wasn’t great since a bunch of our steaks were over cooked. They did comp my friends meal which was nice since it was very over cooked. The servers were very friendly but would disappeared for a while and not be found. It took a long time to get our food and it just wasn’t up to their standard I believe. We had a 9:15 pm reservation so by the the we got our menus and drinks ordered, many other diners left and we thought we would get our food quicker but it still took over 45 minutes to get the appetizers. The deal is good for restaurant week and a taste of Hartford but I would not go back if it were not the special.
Ned went above and beyond. He was amazing. Will definitely come back for him. He has a great sense of humor and sarcasm. Best server in a while! I work for the max group and truthfully believe the server makes the experience. The generation I grew up in goes out for laughs and a good time. The server makes a difference. A little over priced, but the service and atmosphere makes the dollar worth the value to come back.
Food and service were great. I ordered the French onion soup, and was offered a smaller size, because the crock is very large. I wasn’t expecting it to cost only $2 less. I don’t think that was very fair to have a smaller option available, not list the price, and the size of the cup versus the size of the crock to be so big.
I average 5 to 6 visits per year to Capital Grill, but this by far my worst experience. I went on a Tuesday during Restaurant week. It was very crowded possibly due to the Restaurant week promotion. I took a chance and accepted the table next to the kitchen and the bathroom hall. If you are ever offered this table, DON’T DO IT!! A ridiculous amount of traffic and you will hear the staff yelling “corner” the entire time. Service was Extremely Slow; it took forever in between servings. I ordered the tenderloin medium well and my companion ordered well done. We could not tell the difference. I have not given up on Capital Grille completely, but never again during Restaurant week. Instead I will take the opportunity to try something new.
Meals and service were exceptional, as always.
Other restaurants during Taste of Hartford/Restaurant Week do not include the pre-fixed menu when you are seated. We usually have to ask the server for them, and their reply is usually "let me see if I can find one....". Capital Grille has them displayed proudly, along with their regular menus, and the server is always happy to assist. Other restaurants should take lessons from Capital Grille :)
This experience was great! I really like Ned and Lizbeth. My favorite visits were when they served us. They are both personable and have great personalities for the job! Honest and make good recommendations when asked about the menu. I’m glad we went back during Taste of Hartford week to keep trying more things than we ever could just going 1-2 times a year for special occasions. Great job! We had to wait longer than we expected because we requested to be in Lizbeth’s section, but it was worth it, even though Ned took care of us. No complaints!
We met friends prior to going to the theater. The food, service, atmosphere are all top notch. About as good a steak as can be, sides/desserts/bread basket/drinks all excellent. We were pleasantly surprised with the taste of Hartford menu at $30 a person for a nice filet, potatoes, vegetable, soup/salad and dessert. Amazing meal at the regular price but quite a bargain this time. We've been many times and this was as good a dining experience as any regardless of the discounted menu in this instance. Great place, well run!
Kudos to the staff at Capital Grill for outstanding service once again on a extremely busy Friday evening with the Taste of Hartford going on. Our waiter Alex was amazing! Every table was full when we walked in at 7pm and every table filled when we left at 10pm. The wait staff is fully equipped to handle the pressure of a packed house all evening without missing a beat!!!! The outstanding service keeps us coming back!!!!
This restaurant continues to wow me. The food and service are always first rate. If anything is a problem they correct it immediately. And the fact you can have a consistent server every time you dine there is fantastic. This is my favorite place to dine now.
Not our typical amazing experience. Waited over 30 minutes for cocktails and over 45 minutes for our appetizers. Dinner came well after an hour. Server shared it was restaurant week. And truth be told - there wasn't an open table to be found. However the NY strip steak my brother received was super fatty and had a bone! Not what he typically receivs when he orders a steak. I just assumed restaurant week menu meant sub-standard food. You get what you pay for. And so we will keep that in mind as it wasn't a great experience his time. 😥 Quite disappointed.
I made my reservation for 2 and my reservation couldn’t be found yet I received your confirmation for the reservation. They put us in the bar area for about 10 to 15 minutes until my husband came out and complained about not being seated in the dining room. To be ignored for that length of time is embarrassing. We dine at your restaurant often and this is the first time anything like this has happened to us. Not a happy customer. Once seated everything was fine.
We decided to have our "date night" at The Capital Grille and were not disappointed. We were greeted by the host staff and Managing Partner; David upon our arrival. Our server was Shea and he attended to every need we had, we truly felt special dining at The Capital Grille. We started off with an amazing glass of Cabernet that was recommended by David and followed this with Lobster Bisque and Clam Chowder. For our entrees we had the filet and Kona crusted bone-in NY Strip, both were grilled to perfection! We closed out our dining experience with Creme Brulee and hot tea. Even the tea presentation was magnificent! Well done!!!
