We went for Restaurant Week so the price was a good deal. Everyone says how good the food is, well it should be, look at the prices you are paying. The food was very good but not to die for so I probably will not return and pay full price. Service was good except for a mix up with the... read more

My wife and I dined at the Capital Grille on 1/30 for our 45th wedding anniversary. Our son gifted us a $200 gift card. I thought that was a bit over the top, but boy was I wrong. Unbeknownst to us, they had their Restaurant Week promotion going on, and the restaurant was jam-packed. Arriving about 15 minutes early for... More

We go here for special dinners for birthdays or anniversary. Service is excellent and drinks and food are very good. This is a good steakhouse however they have many other selections.

New Year's Eve dinner with friends. Restaurant was very busy, but we had requested a round table in the back room when we made the reservation and they gave it to us. Food was excellent as usual. Calamari is the best, salads, shareable sides and filets were the best of any steak house in the area. (We went to another... More

I have always like Capital Grille. I have visited many locations. Something is going wrong with the Capital Grille in Oakbrook. The steaks are not the same as they were. A little too close to Sizzler!

I was in Omaha a few weeks before coming to the Capital Grill and thought I'd get a great steak. It was disappointing so I was looking forward to my annual meeting in the Chicago area where my friends and I always come to the CG. I needed to be reminded what a perfect steak is and CG didn't disappoint... More

My husband and I have eaten at the Capital Grille in a number of locations, and have hosted family parties at this location in Lombard. After this most recent experience, however, we won't return. We had 7:30 reservations and were sat 15 minutes late, at a table between the service station and the kitchen--not an optimal table. Although I'm a... More

I hosted a business dinner here for 28 guests and the service was absolutely perfect. Klaudia made things very easy to book the party and select a menu that would have something for everyone. Paul (managing partner) and his team make outstanding service look effortless and truly value your business. I am normally not a fan of chain steakhouses as... More

This steakhouse joins others like it that are dark, tasteful, excellent food, undependable service and really really expensive. Haven't gone back in years as the last visit pushed my agitation button to the max. They are so full of themselves, no amount of good about this place could ever convince me to return.
