The food was terrific, the kitchen was tremendously accommodating to our special requests and our waiter, Dragos, was efficient and helpful in ordering both food and wine. All of the above, together with the waiter's great personality, made for a wonderful evening.

We chose The Capital Grill to celebrate our three boys birthdays which fall around the same time. They love steak and getting dressed up for dinner.

The reservations team did a great job following up and confirming the reservation and moving up earlier due to the winter storm we were expecting that evening.

When we arrived the valet was great and they seated us promptly on arrival. The table had birthday cards and some sparkles which was a nice touch.

This is where the good news ends. We were seated in a satellite room with very little ambiance in comparison to the main room, which was half full and even one of the waiters complained that his section was empty but our room was full.

Our waitress was not a professional steak house waiter one normally finds and was lost most of the dinner. Our initial beverages arrived promptly, but our wine with dinner and subsequent orders took multiple request to arrive.

The food was average at best and the porterhouse we ordered had almost no filet, maybe two bites.

It was not an inexpensive dinner for what at best was a subpar experience.

I unfortunately would not recommend this restaurant based on our experience.

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.

Great waiter. Food was marginal and slightly cold. We were placed in room in back and it was ice cold and you could hear the music from adjoining restaurant. Avoid sitting there if possible.
