Our waiter was superb. I feel awful that I forgot his name but he was the only waiter as I was the only lunch reservation for Monday. The steak salad special with white anchovies was delightful. The lobster bisque and burrata with heirloom tomatoes salad was also amazing. My nephew was treated so specially as he celebrated his birthday! THANKS

We had to wait about 10 minutes for our server to initially come to the table. One of our sides came out real late and we were compensated for the delay, that should say how slow the service was , which is unusual from my other experiences at the Grille.

We were greeted immediately upon arrival and asked if we were celebrating a special occasion. We said it was our anniversary and were congratulated by the hostess. Once we were seated we noticed our table was decorated beautifully with rose petals and hearts and a sweet card.
Our server was excellent, wished us a happy anniversary and was attentive throughout our meal. My husband had a steak and I had chicken. Both of us enjoyed our dinner. We were surprised with a piece of chocolate cake to share on a beautiful plate that said Happy Anniversary!
We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. The dining area was elegant and the noise from other guests was minimal.
We would definitely recommend this Capital Grille, especially for a celebratory occasion.

An awesome experience. They convinced us to tell them it was our anniversary and they treated us unbelievably well. They went way over the top. Our server Tommy was incredible, he knew when to come over when not to. Made excellent suggestions. Food as usual was perfect. Would definitely recommend for dinner and especially a special occasion.

Food consistently excellent and steaks are always cooked to perfection. Love their sides- flavorful.
Cocktails are also consistently above average and bar potato chips are addicting. My favorite Stark is the steak au poirve which is always tasty. My husband had baked stuffed lobster which was cooked to perfection and never over cooked.
Only disappointment was dessert- creme brûlée was good but not chilled enough and ice cream was a melted mess when it arrived. Was very bust as it was Father’s Day and staff was not as attentive as usual. But great experience.

We have enjoyed previous experiences. Our most recent experience could have been better. There was an excessive wait on our dinner. The manager and server were very kind to inform us it was due to the new increased size of porterhouse. Usually timing is on point.

I booked a table for 2 online for 4:30pm but had to wait for 5pm when the dining hall opens. We had a dirty glass and two chipped glasses. I ordered a tuna dish but recieved the salmon dish. A steak was ordered medium rare and it was cooked closer to medium well. If these issues did not occur the cost of dinner would seem acceptable because the dining experience and food was still over all excellent. For the cost I'd expect close to perfection and it was far from it. These issues should have not occurred, especially when the place only seemed to be at 10% capacity or less. I might expect this for a $60-120 dinner for two but not a $240 dinner for two at this place. Do to my first and only experience, I can not recommend this restaurant.

A great meal, I took my boyfriend there for his birthday and it did not disappoint. We sat outside, it was a perfect night. I had the kona crusted NY sirlion and he the tenderloin with lobster tail and we shared the brussel sprouts – all we excellent! Our Server Maura was great, professional and very personable. They even brought a mini bcake over at the end of the meal. It's a perfect place to celebrate a special occasion.

Wow! From start to finish, me and my husband were thrilled with the service we received from the Capital Grille. This is certainly not your every day restaurant, this felt like a culinary experience. We went for our five year wedding anniversary, and the staff were so kind, and made us feel so special. From our table being decorated, complimentary glasses of champagne and dessert to enjoying a “chef’s snack” we couldn’t have been happier. The staff approached our table by greeting us by our last name, and were very attentive. Our waiter Ian was beyond professional. The food was exceptional (best lobster Mac and cheese of my life). This will be an anniversary we will never forget.

The shrimp cocktail was very overcooked. Tough to cut and tough to eat, mentioned this to the waitress.. her response was..do you wish to take it home? A resounding no to that! Oysters were good, as was the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella, but the beet and goat cheese salad tasted as if they poured a entire salt shaker over it. Not the same quality we've come to expect, wait staff never even bothered to fix issue or replace food. Think it's now a hard pass on eating here again... frankly there are just to many other great restaurants in Providence.

First time I have been disappointed at the Capital Grille. Service was painfully slow and when the waiter did show up he was creepy and hovering. Food was meh. (Over cooked chicken, undercooked potato, steaks were good). It was unbearably loud. Love Capital Grille in Chestnut Hill and Back Bay, but Providence? Never again.
