Description: When seeking an exceptional dining experience, Stamfordites need look no further than their own backyard. At The Capital Grille in Stamford Town Center, dry aged steaks and 20 year-old Scotch fortify Fortune 500 power brokers and power shoppers alike, while refreshing cocktails and irresistible appetizers delight patrons of the Palace Theatre and Rich Forum. Clearly, distinctive dining is not reserved for that larger city down the road. As a charming young lady once said, there's no place like home.

We visited after a long day travelling from the UK and after leaving a near by restaurant due to slow service. This was a most welcome change, swift, attentive service and great food, it wasn't cheap but absolutely worth it a great end to a long day!

Had dinner there for a family get together. I've always considered Capital Grille as a trade off between driving to NYC for a great steak house (Palm West) and not driving and having a decent meal. This time I should have made the drive to NYC. Ordered the delmonico (my favorite at the CG) medium rare. They brought it out... More

We called last minute on Sunday to reserve a birthday dinner when our reservation another place was messed up. We were accommodated and the table was beautifully set with festive confetti. What a nice detail. I've been here many times and I've had consistently well prepared food. The seafood is quite good for a steakhouse. The prices are somewhat high,... More

This restaurant is expensive, so I usually save it for special occasions. Upon every visit, the service is great! Very knowledgable, very welcoming, and attentive. The food is delicious as well. I'm sometimes hesitant to go to restaurants like these since they are chain restaurants, but Capital Grille does not have that feel.

Good food, a bit "overdone" but consistent and nice place for business lunch or dinner. Specials should vary more or just be put on menu

Bar area is lively and fun and better than restaurant area. Food is good not great and expensive. Service and seating can take awhile.

Capital Grille never disappoints, but the food options are rather predictable and hardly innovative. Service is always excellent and the decor is very traditional. The wine list is excellent and the waitstaff highly knowledgeable.

The entire experience at capital grill was great. Service, atmosphere,food, and wine selection all at the top of the spectrum. The desserts were worth saving room for, but we ate everything anyway. Love being able to see the grill in the open kitchen. The booths gave privacy which we loved. Dress up for the night. We used open table for... More

A definitely must go to in the Stamford area. The steaks are simply amazing, and the staff friendly and knowledgeable. We tried the fried calimari with hot peppers it was a great dish to start off with. My wife had the sea bass and I had a perfectly cooked delmonico cut steak. They Also have an extensive wine list that... More
