Great place to celebrate a birthday but it was a little loud. Waiters were very good. Food was outstanding. They went out of their way to help us celebrate with champagne and special desserts. Thank you.

The service and food were great. The area where I was sitting was a bit chilly making it a little uncomfortable. The free champagne and dessert were a nice surprise. The bill had extra drinks that we did not order, however, the check was immediately corrected. Overall we were treated nicely by the staff. We had a great anniversary dinner and we will come back again.

The Capitol Grille is amazing. The ambiance incredible. The food is inconsistent. I will continue to celebrate events there, and take my chances.

Food and drink were absolutely delicious! But we ate st the bar and at a certain point the bartender disappeared and we flat out stopped getting served. Had to flag people down to get the rest of our meal.

Capital Grille never disappoints, the food is consistently cooked to perfection. This time we had the restaurant week menu and it is truly an amazing value.
The whole experience was even better because our server - Wil was extraordinary. He is knowledgeable, his recommendations were spot on and he was always available for any requests with a big smile!!
We will be back soon and make sure that we request Wil the next time. Thank you!

Enjoyed the 2 pound lobster along with the lobster mac & cheese. The generous pour was awesome. Michael C the waiter was great as well. I am a regular at 42nd street location but maybe converted to the Stamford location.

Shameful greeting and service. Outrageous prices. Loud unpleasant atmosphere. Just a total disappointment from start to finish. There are MANY BETTER OPTIONS in Stamford. I strongly recommend you skip it.

Great experience. We always enjoy the Capital grille. This time my husband's steak was tough. When we told the manager, he was very accommodating and took the price of the steak off the bill.

Great place for a quick lunch and love their Plates lunch special. I usually get the Mini Tenderloin Sandwiches (2) with Parmesan Truffle Fries but wanted to go a little more healthy and opted for the Seared Salmon with Olives, Tomatoes, and Mediterranean Couscous. The salmon didn't have that crispy outer layer and was a little over cooked. I was a little disappointed about my Salmon dish but the Watermelon, Tomato Salad with Feta was so refreshing. I would go back and get my usual Mini Tenderloin Sandwiches (2) with Parmesan Truffle Fries. The meat is so tender.
