The food and service was excellent. Our waiter suggested a bottle of wine that we had not had before and it was excellent.
I was disappointed that Capital Grille has chose to put food calories on their menu.

We go to the Capital Grille for my son’s birthday every year. The food is consistently great as is the service. We started with the calamari, which was wonderful. Its very rich but cooked perfectly. My son and I both had the porterhouse. Again, it was cooked perfectly. Half of it came home with us. My wife had the lobster bisque which had plenty of lobster meat and a nice sherry on top. She also had a wedge salad.

We love the Capital Grille. We are not regulars but they treat us like we are. It’s probably more expensive than it needs to be but the experience is worth it for a special occasion.

Another great meal at The Capital Grille in Providence. I had the rib-eye, medium rare, with a bit of shallot butter sauce on the side and my husband had the 10oz tenderloin, medium rare, with the Courvoisier Cream on the side. They were PERFECT! At the suggestion of our server, we shared a wedge salad which was the perfect amount of food. My husband ordered their Duckhorn Napa Merlot, a great accompaniment to the meal.

We dine at CG Providence frequently, both in the bar and dining room. We generally like it very much. Tonight was better than ever with perfectly cooked meals and wonderful service from Ken J. and others. Everything tasted exactly as we like it. The restaurant has great service oriented staff and the atmosphere is low key though very noice. We are always comfortable at this location. It is a bit pricey (as are all high end steakhouses) but when you have such a great meal it is hard to complain. My husband is already telling me to make reservations for his birthday!

Great food as usual, our server, John Burke was phenomenal. He was attentive, thorough, and had easy conversation. My wife and I both got the surf and turf, and it was cooked perfectly. Can’t beat the food here, however we do like the old location better.

The food and waitstaff were excellent. Ambiance was bad because there was a very long line of people waiting to get into a 200 person fundraiser and they were standing right up against our table for an extended period of time, talking loudly and staring at us, bumping my chair. The manager’s initial response was disappointing. We were told to wait it out. It was a ridiculous amount of time to not be able to converse with my party or sit comfortably and enjoy my meal. The waitress was lovely and professional and food was excellent. Overpriced, all things considered.

My wife and I went to the Capital Grille for our 46 th wedding anniversary . It was our first trip to the new location in Providence. As always the food was outstanding . I had the lobster bisque and the filet Oscar ; my wife had onion soup and the sliced tenderloin . The filets were cooked to perfection . The bisque was excellent and included a generous portion of lobster meat
The dining area seemed roomier than the old one and provided excellent views of waterplace park . We will be coming back in the warmer weather to enjoy the patio . The dining room was dark and we had some difficulty reading the menu . Many people took out their phones to use the flashlight app .They may want to consider providing a small flashlight with the menu
Our waitress was Stephanie and we were very pleased with her service

This is a great place for a special occasion such as an anniversary of birthday. They pay special attention to celebrations. The wait staff is especially polite and efficient without being annoying. You will never be hurried here. The food is always done to perfection. It is a little pricey, but well worth it for that special occasion.

I was disappointed that nothing was done for a special valentine's celebration despite stating that several times in the reservation and upon our arrival. Also Capital Grill had advertised for a special experience during Valentines week so we thought we should give it a try.

We waited about 20 minutes past our reservations but it was also the weekend everyone seemed to be celebrating Valentines Day so it was totally expected! Staff and hostesses were in top gear flying around making sure people were seated and helped as well as I’ve ever seen on a “holiday” like that! They deserve a high five and every penny they make was definitely earned that night! We were seated and waited on in a very timely manner which wasn’t expected because of the rush they had moving people in and out. Dan Beam was probably the most attentive,pleasant,and professional server we’ve ever had wait on us in any restaurant we’ve dined in,the guy is a superhero! He took care of us like royalty even though we were paying the same price as everyone else in the place,it was definitely refreshing from other service we’ve had at different establishments. All in all I would definitely go back for a special occasion because it is a little pricy, but if you love amazing food and experienced and above five star service it is an amazing restaurant and dining experience!

Disappointed that our reservation was 1/2 hour late seating. I understand it was “Valentine’s Day” for many people, but the fact that they couldn’t keep the reservations closer to being on time, was disappointing. Not sure if they didn’t estimate the length of time at tables or there was a significant walk in crowd after the college basketball game to cause the delay. This has been our go to on many special occasions, but may need to reconsider going forward

I am very disappointed with the experience Saturday night. First, we had to wait 20 minutes for our table, even with reservations. It was obvious they overbooked. Second, I requested my steak to be cooked well-done - it was medium well, which meant there was red. I had to send it back. Third, we waited an extremely long time to get our car from valet even though the waiter brought our ticket out a good 10 minutes before. Let's hope the Capital Grille goes back to the way they were. It will be a while before I go rushing back there.

We have had and asked for Matt Walters as our server because the first time he served us we were very impressed with his service. He has been impressive ever since. He is the reason we come to the Capital Grill now. It was hectic due to being Valentines celebrations and the group behind use were very loud, sometimes obnoxiously. However that did spoil our experience for long.
