I've been to the location in NYC several times and the setup is virtually the same. I had a reservation for 6 and they were kind enough to allow the early birds of our group to sit first. The servers and ambiance was great and we enjoyed our time with their outdoor seating we requested. We ordered a total of 3 steaks (2 porter houses and one bone in Rib-eye) all medium rare - however two of the 3 came out medium and only one of the porter houses was cooked to temperature. Out over over 150+ steaks I've ever had; I've only ever sent back one and didn't feel like it was worth it to send this one back. Capital Grille prefers not to season their steaks which I personally don't mind as long as the cut of the meat and the way it's cooked is up to standard; unfortunately I feel as though they didn't hit the mark this particular time. I wouldn't mind going back due to convenience of location. My warning is that if you're paying for a quality meal don't be like me who was afraid to speak up.

Were late being seated which is understandable because it was mother’s day, but the service seriously declined throughout the length of our meal. We were waiting a half hour just to get the check and felt like our table was being ignored. Not sure I would go back.

Expensive, but great place for steaks. The sides were also outstanding. One suggestion would be to put a little less truffle sauce in the fries. We really enjoyed ourselves and we would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

Always good but Mothers' Day was great. 'No' is not in their vocabulary. Never rushed. It was also my daughter's birthday. The waiter brought her as well as myself a special dessert. So simple, thoughtful, and considerate!

I love going to the Capital Grille. The steak is always cooked to perfection and the service is attentive but not annoying. They always recommend a great wine. It is also one of the few restaurants where you can have an elegant dinner and it's quiet.

Our only issue was the Wine List Tablet was misleading - we ordered a bottle of wine that we thought was $65 - when the bill came we were charged $152 - we asked the waiter and he said "$65 was the half bottle price."

Truly the best meal in Stamford. Service was exceptional. It is a bit pricey. But it is worth it. And the portions are so large I always have lunch the next day. I don't wait for special occasions because just going there turns the night into a special occasion.

This was my first time dining at this establishment. From the moment I walked in I was greeted until the moment I left, I was met with the greatest service. The food was absolutely delicious! I am not one to eat salmon or steak- AND I ATE BOTH!!! The mashed potatoes were perfect and dessert was out of this world. I can’t wait to go back.

I've been to the Capital Grille many times and in many different locations. I have never been disappointed.
For this visit, we were pleased to be there on restaurant week and got a great meal for a great price. The starter salad was perfect, my filet was prepared perfectly, the side dishes were tasty and the classic creme brulee was a real treat. The wine list is large and it is always a good way to taste new wine.

Capital Grille is my favorite restaurant! Unfortunately my steak was not the best cut this time around. It was restaurant week and a huge discount, so I’m giving them a pass. The sides/lobster add on was still amazing.

It was restaurant week, so the restaurant was especially busy. Gave the 4-star rating for the food because afterwards I could feel the saltiness from the food in my mouth. I hate that. Service was awesome, as usual, despite the business of the place. Will def go back, but may avoid restaurant week next time.

The experience was excellent, as a whole. The staff was all very polite and friendly. We were fortunate enough to order from the Restaurant Week menu; which offered great selections and upgrades. Unfortunately, 2 of us ordered the Veal tomahawk cooked medium, but it came out raw. The server was very apologetic and took it back to be cooked further. For the minor inconvenience, they brought us additional side dishes and a free champagne toast.
All of the food was delicious. We will definitely come back again.

Hands down the most consistently very good steakhouse option in the area. Steaks are prepared to the right temperature which is something that can only be said of the Capital Grille and not of their competitors! Don’t waste your money trying other options and just book the CG.
