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.

Very Good

A very good experience. Excellent food - we had filet mignon and shrimp with mashed potatoes. It's very expensive and a little pretentious, though. No beer on tap.

It was our first visit, but it won't be our last! Everything was wonderful - the food, the atmosphere, and the service. Our waiter was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. Our meals were cooked to order and delicious. I recommend the lobster tails - they are buttery and tender!

Highly recommend dining at the Capital Grille during "The Generous Pour" event where we sampled (unlimited samples!) 8 different California wines created by 8 talented women. That coupled with " Summer Restaurant Week" made for an amazing experience dining in downtown Stamford. We enjoyed their specialties - starting with salad, followed by Kona steak & seared salmon with sides of... More

Had dinner with friends for restaurant week in Stamford, Ct. Three course meal for $35.00. Great choices along with dessert. Valet parking also included. The food was to perfection. Service was excellent. We are going to return.

Been here several times and always visit when I'm in the area. Selection of different tables so good for big groups but can be quite romantic too. Steaks are fantastic and good wine list - stick with the US wines as there's a good selection from Napa and Sonoma

Good steak but average service, the waitress becoming too familiar at the end with "darlings, honey"... Not a driver for a higher tips. Pleasant seating outside.

If you're looking for a place for fine meats and fish, you will not find another place like it. With a nice and welcoming, professional atmosphere, you can sit down and expect great service and excellent good. You don't have to worry much about the service, just make sure to get whatever food you're craving that evening. Some personal favorites... More

A friend of mine wanted to treat me to dinner at Capital Grille in Stamford. I had eaten at the one in Boston and had a positive experience. My experience in Stamford fell short. We sat at the bar and ordered a glass of wine. The bartender poured my friend's wine and as he poured mine, there wasn't enough in... More
