Disappointed with the mashed potatoes. Good thing not too many of us wanted the string beans because you’d have to count them out. Meat excellent . Desserts just enough. Breads great. Waiter wonderful. Guess it’s just that you need better sides. Sides are not pricy so don’t cut corners.

We enjoyed a great meal till we went to the parking garage and when I parked the spot next to me was blocked off so I parked favoring the blocked spots only to get into a debate with one of the valets that had removed the cones and parked so close that we could not enter our vehicle. He did move the truck only after snide remarks were made . Put a damper to a otherwise great evening.

They go to great lengths to give each guest a world-class experience. Our waiter, Zachary, was friendly, funny, charismatic, and very attentive. We felt like guests, rather than customers.

Make no mistake, I will go back, but I have a few minor points of criticism.

The food was almost completely amazing... But about 20% more expensive than comparable meals elsewhere. Also, the bread was great, but the butter supplied with it had clearly been left out, uncovered in the walk-in refrigerator, as it had absorbed those fridge flavors. This minor detail cheapened the whole experience for me.

One of the other guests insisted on making snide remarks about how half the people in the room would be there if it weren't Restaurant Week. So be prepared for snobby regulars.

Though the service was attentive, the pace was a bit slower than I'm accustomed to.

The Capital Grille in Providence is certainly a classic experience that I highly recommend - a top 5 dining experience for sure. The menu is old fashioned, but prepared to perfection. You're going to pay top dollar for your meal, and the people around you won't let you forget it, but it's also an evening you'll remember!

Food as always was outstanding! The service was a little subpar, seemed to be forgetful. Multiple times we had to asks for our guests drinks from the bar, even to the point I had to ask another server who wasn’t thrilled that I asked him for help, almost like I was a bother that I wanted my 12 dollar drink.

We went for restaurant week and the service and food were great but oddly, we had to wait 20 minutes for our table even though no one was in there. It was a bit strange but everything else was just fine.

Capital Grille is always extraordinary. They had a birthday card and rose petals on the table when we arrived, and every course was delicious and not rushed. Our server Ian was attentive, professional, and personable and he augmented the evening. We loved our meal and experience there!

Four of us went for New Years Eve and we had a lovely evening. The food was delicious, but the rack of lamb was superb! Having said that, here's what could have made the evening even better. Valet parking in front of the restaurant or covered access to the restaurant from the garage would be much appreciated ... especially if it's raining! My pet peave is reservations. We had 7:45 reservations and we were not seated until a little after 8. You should know your business well enough to be able to accept reservations as you can handle them. Dinner was delicious, but I don't think it was worth THAT much! And for that price, EVERYTHING should be PERFECT!
