Hand crafted Manhattan cocktail great way to start off the evening. Beet salad nicely split for us to share. Evening's special entree of bone-in filet cooked to medium-rare perfection. Ten-ounce filet mignon also cooked as ordered (medium), but too large to finish in one sitting. Cauliflower au gratin very decadent but delicious as was the sauteed spinach (added left-over to doggie bag!). Did save some room for yummy warm chocolate cake served with cherries. Nice end to a Friday night date!

Food was average - steak was not cooked accurately

The chain can be inconsistent from location to location but for the reputation and price this was not an experience that I wouldnt want to repeat

Service and food was wonderful! This was a special occasion one in which a reservation was made several weeks in advance. There were many activities going ion the area and we could not get to the valet to park the car. It would have been made the night less stressful and have been an outstanding evening to have known in advance we would need extra time and the address of where they moved the valet service to.

Our waiter Ken was perfect. Bread, drinks, choices, suggestions & timing were all perfect. Bone in ribeye with drizzled renderings of butter & waguyu touched the soul. Our table overlooked the Providence Waterfire. A true steakhouse dining event. Cannot wait to return ASAP!

My husband and I went for our anniversary. We love the card, confetti, and rose petals waiting at our table and appreciated that we were seated in a more private quieter room. Our waiter was outstanding. Cannot remember his name but we were there on Saturday September 28th. Everything was delicious. We loved the flourless chocolate cake with happy anniversary on the plate. Overall excellent experience. We enjoyed our time and plan to return.

The restaurant was very busy but they were still very prompt and attentive to our presence from the moment we arrived. We were there celebrating a birthday and the table was tastefully prepared with a nice birthday card. They seated us in a cozy corner of the restaurant where we could talk with one another. Our server was Excellent!! Weather was terrific that night to and the location was great for a nice walk downtown after our meal. My only disappointed was that some quests felt it was appropriate to dress so casual, but other than that 5 Stars!!

We were celebrating my sister and brother-in-laws 40th wedding anniversary and it couldn’t have been more perfect! The ambiance is wonderful. The food and service were top notch!
To begin the table was set with rose petals and tiny red hearts along with a postcard from the manager, to extend well wishes! Such special touches, which was the start to a great evening/dinner.
We ordered oysters, shrimp cocktail and calamari for appetizers; all were so fresh and delicious!
Three of us ordered the tenderloin and lobster tails and the other ordered a bone-in crusted dry aged NY strip; all of us raved about our meals! (We did have to send one of the meats back as it was over-done, but, they were only happy to make an exchange to ensure it was cooked to perfection )We ordered sides of wild mushrooms, potatoes and spinach.
All of our dinners were delicious!
A slice of cake with chocolate lettering was presented to the anniversary couple! In addition, we ordered the apple crostata and coconut cream pie, everyone enjoyed their desserts!
Katie was our server and was truly the “icing on the cake”!
She was so personable and made good recommendations, to help make our meal decisions! She never rushed us and provided superb service! :)

Valet was not available because it was a waterfire night but exceptions were clearly made for some....
Service /waiter was friendly but he was not attentive.
Food ( filets) were overcooked and should never be at those prices. We did not send back because we knew waiting for new ones would be a long wait and didnt want guests to stop eating.

Dinner was for my wife’s Birthday. I used Open Table to make the reservation and added a note for your staff to wish my wife a happy birthday. When we arrived, your hostess staff greeted us with the birthday wish! Our table had a hand written birthday wish along with a smattering b-day glitter. Eric was our server. He was friendly, professional and super knowledgeable offering several suggestions to enhance our experience. At the end of the meal, Eric brought a lovely (and delicious) dessert with “ Happy Birthday” written in chocolate! My wife was thrilled. I scored major points!! Thanks for the great experience.

Arrived early to have a cocktail in the bar prior to dinner
However there were so many patrons having dinner in the bar it was more of a dining room.
The food was great and the waiter magnificent.
Like all waiters though they are to free to pour the wine and wish they asked first.
Considering most of us were driving and the host was asked about getting additional bottles but how could he say no we were a small group he was hosting.
This is a classic steak house and a Providence classic.

While I normally have a great time at Capital, this past experience was sub par. The line cooks and staff were cursing and rowdy, which I also experienced in a previous visit. My waiter Dan was excellent, and my dinner was very good. However, I took a coconut cream pie desert home, with the intention of having it the previous afternoon. Unfortunately for me, as I was eating it, I discovered a clear plastic sheet (presumably from a piping bag, or something of the like) in the dessert. While I will continue to visit, I guess I just have to lower my expectations as it seems some of the standards have been lowered.
