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.

Absolutely perfect place to celebrate my husbands 70th birthday! Let them know a head of time what the special occasion is and they'll add some special touches that guarentee smiles! Pricey but worth it for a memorable evening.

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!

We went to celebrate our engagement and it was absolutely perfect. We were seated right away and our waiter, Frank, explained the menu wonderfully. I had the lobster bisque to start and it was divine. The steak was perfectly cooked and the Brussel sprouts were delicious. We also had the truffle fries which are a favorite of mine. Although this place is definitely not cheap, it is worth the money for a special occasion.

The food was excellent. The steak was outstanding as was the swordfish. The restaurant is expensive, take a look at the menu on line. However, the restaurant delivers consistently outstanding food making it worth the premium prices.

We had a superb dining experience at The Capital Grille. We had reserved using Open Table. When we arrived at the restaurant the hostess informed us that the table was not yet ready. Our reservation was for 7:15 and we had arrived at 7:05 so we understood completely and were content to sit and wait. Within a few minutes the managing partner, Tim Wilkins, came to us to apologize and say that a couple of tables were slow in leaving. Again, we understood and were happy to wait. He came back again a few minutes later to make sure that were were happy and to report on the progress. Shortly after that he came and escorted us to our table, apologizing again, and told the server to take good care of us. In all, I think our seating was only about 10-15 minutes late. Our server, Eric Bussey, was very attentive and pleasant. The bread basket was delivered immediately to our table as soon as we were seated and contained a variety of delicious, fresh breads. We ordered appetizers; Beet with Goat Cheese Salad and New England Clam Chowder. Both arrived fairly quickly and both were expertly prepared and delicious. Soon after our plates were cleared our main courses arrived. I had the Beef Tenderloin and Lobster Tails. The preparation and presentation were perfect; the lobster and beef were cooked exactly as ordered, hot and napped with a delicious sauce. The beef and lobster were so tender I practically did not have to cut it and it almost melted in my mouth. My husband had a wonderful Veal Chop also cooked perfectly as ordered, hot and tender. The sides we ordered came immediately after our plates were put down. We had excellent scalloped potatoes and wonderful creamed spinach. The portions were generous and we enjoyed every bite. We concluded our meal with delicious Coconut Sorbet. It was obvious that Mr. Wilkins and his staff takes their work very seriously and genuinely want their customers to enjoy their dining experience and they deliver that.

The food here was great. We had a selection of fish and steak at our table. Everyone seemed satisfied. My filet was cooked perfectly to my specification. I would recommend this restaurant for a date night or business gatherings. Service was a bit slow, therefore this would not be a great place to bring children.

Excellent Thanksgiving Dinner! John Desmaris provided 5 diamond service. Food was excellent, and offered great choices. All served in excellent fashion; hot and tasty. Wine was good, and dessert and cappuccino excellent. Plan to be there next year and for other special occasions, or just lunch anytime.
