An outstanding experience! Friendly, professional service. Comprehensive menu and by-the-glass wine list. Very well cooked and tasty cuisine, especially the steak! Interesting flavors in the Creamed Spinach. An expense account/splurge restaurant.

A lovely get together with friend's was complimented by exceptional service and delicious food. I crave the bacon in the wedge salad! Steaks were all cooked to perfection, the lobster was fresh and soft (not rubbery at all) the brussel sprouts were crispy and who can say anything bad about the lobster mac n cheese. Topped off the evening with the cheesecake, which is light, airy complimented with juicy berries. Always a great meal here.
Dragos, as usual, offered top notch service and tended to every need. He's the BEST!

Tim was our server and did a terrific job. The meals were excellent, we were overwhelmed by the food, the wine and the service. At one point they showed up with our desserts and profusely apologized for the delay, we unanimously replied “what delay”, honestly we were having the best time, and didn’t notice any delay.
A great time was had by all, and despite our protest they removed the charges for the desserts!
Always love this place, and the other CG’s we go to, never disappointed.

Very reliable and amazing quality food. They always go the extra mile and have never disappointed. I don't like going out to eat in the first place and a lot of restaurants reinforce why I don't go out often, Capital Grille, on the other hand, has me looking forward to dinner! It starts with making the reservation, the confirmation call, the polite hostess up front and then them overdoing any special occasion. For an anniversary they put rose petals on the table, really nice touch. The servers are overly nice and attentive and give you a terrific experience. Then the food comes out which is outstanding. I haven't ordered one thing on the menu I didn't like yet. It is textbook what white glove customer service should be, create an amazing experience and deliver great food, can't ask for anything more!

They do charge appropriately for the service and food, what I mean by that is your bill will night be light. However, I gladly pay $150-200 plus every few months for a nice date night versus regretting going out in the first place to a restaurant with a $100 bill. Bottom line terrific value, service, and food.

Been going to Capital Grill Stamford since they opened. Actually one of our favorite higher end chains, and we frequent Orlando and NYC locations too. Anyhow, chose to go here for my husband’s birthday because you can usually expect consistently stellar service. We were looking forward to a perfect experience and meal, but tonight was FAR from the norm!! Disappointing all the way around from horrific service to getting the order wrong three times, and over cooked meals. HUGE miss and very disappointing. Things happen, orders come back wrong sometimes, but when you confirm an order and it keeps coming back wrong you start to wonder what’s going on. This was definitely time wasted, and the worst part was the server seemed indifferent which is most concerning. Needs significant improvement. Sadly, it is gonna take a lot to go back.

Great professional service and excellent food. Our server Scott was knowledgeable and entertaining. He is a real credit to differentiating The Capital Grille from other high end steak restaurants.

I look forward to our next visit.

P.S. The 16 ounce bone in filet was fabulous.

Another cookie cutter overpriced steak restaurant. Like most steak restaurants, the prices are very high for at best, mediocre food. It's not bad -- don't get me wrong. But not memorable at all -- except for its price. All the staff, however, is friendly and very attentive.

The Capital Grill is our go-to birthday celebration spot! We enjoyed our meal immensely and the only con was that we had to track down our waiter a few times, and actually had to ask other employees for things when we could not find waiter. Other than that, food was great, wine was great, birthday celebration was a success.

We sat at a table in a banquette that was very cold every time the door opened, a cold blast blew in.
Dragos was our waiter, we requested him by name and our request was honored.
He is professional in every regard,
He made New Year’s Eve a pleasure.
Thank you Dragos!

We arrived on an extremely cold night. We were immediately greeted and appropriately accommodated. Although I mistakenly made reservations for the wrong day the hostess fixed it graciously without hesitation. We were seated in a reserved special setting and our orders were taken. Our appetizers, drinks, and food came out quickly and exactly as ordered. The service and total experience was excellent as it has been everytime that I have ever visited this establishment. They made a special occasion all the more special. Thank you again!
