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.

If you want a steak, with good wine in a posh steakhouse setting, then you really can't do much worse than this in Stamford. Service, entrees, steaks and wine were excellent. There were lots of business looking tables too, so clearly a good place for post work business dining.

You will be greeted with a friendly smile when you walk in and a sincere thank you when you leave. The chef specials are a must to try. Everything is ala carte so be prepared to spend money well spent. We sat at the bar and there are table in there as well. The steak tatar is beyond excellent and... More

Visited on Monday evening and the place was packed. Good service, ambience and great steak, going around USD 40 to 50. Tried one of the chef recommendations, sliced beef mignon, onions and mushrooms. Ordered it medium rare, great steak at 10oz serving. Try it if you are near one of their hotels.

Have been to Capital Grille twice now in the last two months and both times it was fantastic. Taylor was our waiter and treated us so well we had to write a review. He guided us on the menu and pointed us in the right direction as I am allergic to chocolate so couldn't do the steak rub he was... More

I can't help bu think it was just bad luck, but my one time there I found the place to be average. Like eating at Chili's or Applebee's. The restaurant does have a nice atmosphere, and you can choose a lively bar section, or a quieter indoor section. Service was extremely slow. I waited about 45min between the time I... More

The restaurant was fully booked and each cut of meat was cooked exactly the way 9 of us had ordered. I had mentioned how impressed I was and found out the chef cooked over 400 pieces of meat that way ALL BY HIMSELF! Kudos to chef CARLOS!!! Our waiter, Chase was friendly and attentive. I will definitely be back!

We made reservations while in the area. Looked at the menu in the foyer and noticed there weren't prices. That is always a good indication that its going to be expensive and we were ok with that. Waiter was very friendly and the hostess was as well. As soon as we saw the menu our jaws dropped. $50 for a... More

Two friends and I had the pleasure and privilege of dining at the Capital Grille in Stamford in mid-November. The quality of our food (which was superior) was only surpassed by the highly professional and simply outstanding service provided by Jermaine Johnson. Jermaine was, in our collective opinion, the best service provider we have EVER had during a dining experience.... More
