Pleasant experience

A leisurely pleasant restaurant on the expensive side but well worth it even to one who does not like to go out to expensive restaurants!

The waiter brought us sea bass instead of sea scallops. It messed up the timing of dinner. He tried to make up to us with a glass of champagne it didn't work. My bone in rib eye was under cooked I ordered med got raw. The meat was thin cut with an excess of fat. Once we got the sea... More

The Capital Grille is where you go when you want the best steak dinner with the best service. The food is outstanding. All cuts of meat are prepared perfectly and are delicious. But what really makes this a dining experience to remember is the quality of service. Everyone from who works there is 100% focused on making you feel valued... More

If someone told me that seventeen people were seated at a table on a packed night with one waitress...and everyone's appetizers, salads, entrees and drinks came promptly and all the steaks were cooked perfectly and were delicious I would say they were crazy. This place would prove me wrong because that's exactly what I experienced last night when I celebrated... More

A beautiful old building, well-appointed interior, and a great waiter. My wife's lunch choice was scallops. I had a bite, and it was excellent. I chose the sirloin hash, which wasn't as good. It reminded me of a meal of leftovers. The dessert, creme brulee, made up for that, along with coffee and espresso. I will certainly come back to... More

We took our son to the Capital Grille to celebrate his 21st birthday. Our visit was outstanding in every respect. The way they treated us from the time we made the reservation until we left the restaurant was first rate. These guys get customer service. As for the food, it was simply wonderful. Our steaks were perhaps the best we've... More

Our family went to this Capital Grill near Boston College to celebrate my Son receiving his Masters. They did an excellent job of making this occasion very special. The service was exceptional and the Chef's pairing of a nice Merlot with the Kona Crusted Steak was spot on. The Steak Tartar was very good and I always enjoy the French... More

Four of us went to lunch. Three of us had a terrific lunch; two had the tenderloin sliders on a brioche bun with truffled fries and the third the Cobb Salad. We ordered meat done rare, medium, and medium well and each was just right. But then there was number four who had a miserable experience. She ordered the rib... More
