We enjoyed the meal and service was great. Unfortuantely, it was extremly loud as there was
a party going into a private room but while they were at the bar and we couldn't hear ourselves talk until they left.

We made a reservation for a certain time and was in the restaurant 30 minutes early. We approached the hostess and was told that we will be seated closer to our reservation. Went to the bar, ordered glasses of wine and waited within a stone's throw away from the hostess. Five minutes after our reservation and after waiting for 35 mins, we still were not called even though we noticed that people who arrived after us are already being seated. We followed up and the hostess said we are next. After five to ten more mins, we followed up again and this time showed our annoyance. Only then did we get seated. Steaks were great though and the sides are decent. Then just as we started eating our dessert, our bill was placed on our table even though we haven't asked for it yet. The poor service ruined our evening and we are very disappointed. We don't intend to come back again.

The service was slow. The food was bland with very litter flavoring. Ordered the tenderloin with lobster tail. The shrimp cocktail and the lobster crab cakes were delicious. Overall, not worth the money.

From our attentive wait person AJ , to the more than excellent Sam’s mashed potatoes & the garlic infused sautéed spinach that complimented our perfectly charred medium rare bone in ribeye and bone in filet mignon, our meal was more than perfect.
Add to that the free valet parking, the delightful hostesses, who seated us, on time for our reservation and you will know why we will soon return.

This was a special birthday lunch for my son. Reservation was made through Open Table and they asked if it was a special occasion? I responded, "Yes." The restaurant sat us quickly, the hostess festively sprinkled confetti down the center of the table and handed my son an envelope with a hand written note with birthday wishes. Complimentary vodka pineapple cocktail to start and complimentary champagne toast to end the meal. A candle and birthday wishes written on the dessert plate was served. The Capital Grille did a wonderful job, it was a perfect birthday celebration and I will certainly recommend to others searching for a special birthday lunch location! Thank you.

Wanted to relax after Thanksgiving. Decided to go to the movies and eat out . Capital Grille is located in Paramus Park. It is an excellent steak house. Everything about it is first rate.

Overall a good experience, but not how we envisioned it would be. The shining stars of the night were the team that served us - Yuly (our server) and Jesse (in-house sommelier). The service was fantastic, and the recommendation of wine by Jesse was amazing. The food was above average; we ordered the seafood plateau - one shrimp was bad/spoiled and my steak arrived just barely warm. After informing our server about the steak, it was quickly resolved. It was my 40th birthday and my wife wanted to treat me to a memorable evening. Unfortunately, the meal it didn't live up to either of our expectations, but the service from Yuly and Jesse were 5-star.

The food at the CG is always great. As a lover of deserts, I have never met a desert too sweet for me until I ordered the coconut creme pie. It was like vanilla glaze in a pie shell with whipped creme. Inedible. But everything else was great.

Ate here with a friend on Thanksgiving. Food great, service not as good as usual. Often there for lunch and service is always impeccable. Our table was extremely cold throughout the dinner so felt uncomfortable the entire time. Enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be back. Probably not for Thanksgiving again. And, definitely, would ask to sit away from the bar area AND the front door. Felt like it was open the entire night.

Chris Feeley was an exceptional server, paying attention to detail and ensuring that we were happy from beginning to end. When the temperature on my lamb chops was incorrect (twice, at that), Chris was on top of it! We celebrated my mother’s bday and she was blown away by the hand written card and complimentary champagne. Again, all of the details put in place for her special day made the experience memorable. So, thank you very much for a wonderful time!

For a "chain restaurant" the food is consistently outstanding and the staff among the most accommodating anywhere. But I have to make special mention of the lobster bisque. Delicious. Next time I'm going to have to order my own!

Excellent food. Even though it is expensive, the porterhouse I had was amazing and every time I think about it my mouth waters. Also the mashed potatoes and truffle fries were to die for, as well as their desserts. Overall, a must go to restaurant.
