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.

Ribeye! Its whats for dinner!

Their signature steak is so good I keep ordering it and do not get to try much else on the menu. The Veal Chop also excellent when available. The side dishes are done perfectly and can be slightly modified upon request. I have eaten at several capital Grilles across the country, but this one in... read more

One of the best steaks I've ever had. Visited the restaurant for Valentine's Day and had the best experience. Very romantic for dinner!

I'm not a big believer in the value proposition of this ilk of restaurant. There are many fine restaurants serving some great steaks where the cost of admission is not quite so dizzying. That said, I lov a great steak and my favorite of these is The Capital Grille. I don't find the service or atmosphere snooty as I do... More

This is the place if you're a carnivore. Excellent steaks and chops. Very generous portions and white glove service. It is expensive, though...no bargains here. Or fish, safe your aquatic meals for another place.

The steaks are great, the lobster macaroni is to die for and the service is top notch. The atmosphere is a little stodgy due to the business people that it attracts. However, if you want a great meal, this restaurant can't be beat.

Went to Capital Grille for Valentine's Day. Been to this restaurant a few times before and the food and service are always top notch, as was this evening. Since we could only get 4:30 reservations, we decided to stop in the bar after dinner. It was very busy, people waiting for their table, and people eating dinner at the bar.... More

The price is the only thing I found to dislike about this restaurant. The service is terrific and so is the food. Busy, noisy atmosphere, but you can still have a conversation. A go-to spot for a special occasion.

This place is all about quality food and great service. Food and drinks are expensive (drinks $10+, steaks $40+), but food portions are large and can be shared. Parking available either in a nearby garage or by valet. Very classy bar area. Nice place.

I am a fan of Capital Grille. I have eaten at locations in Florida, NYC and now the one in Stamford. I enjoyed my experiences at all of the locations except Stamford. I went there for lunch on Thursday, January 15th. I was expecting good food and great service, which is what I have usually experienced at other locations. I... More
