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

The food here is excellent. Enjoyed everything we had. Perfect lump crabmeat. Steaks and sides all superb. I think the room is a little odd in that the bar is the central point and tables are all around it... main dining room to left, a seating behind the bar, seating to the left of the bar in an area that...

We ate in the lounge in a corner table/booth. Very comfortable. Waitress took great care of us. Food was perfect and great tasting. Left very full and happy.

Was traveling with a team throughout Boston area for a week. This is where we had our last dinner as a team. Expect great food and service, but prices are a bit steep ($10 for a small cup of chowder?). Entrees come with no sides, so plan on sharing side dishes with the table. Best part was the large number... More

A gift certificate to the Capital Grille was a true gift! We were served a terrific meal made special by the wait staff. Upon arrival we revealed that it was an anniversary and when escorted to the table strewn with rose petals, we had a memorable photo taken and inserted into a card bearing staff signatures. Then the meal was... More

My husband and I enjoyed a fantastic meal here on Saturday! We have been to the Burlington and downtown Boston locations so haven't been to Chestnut Hill in over a year. I have to say that by far the Chestnut Hill location is our favorite. I have had great meals at the other Boston area Capital Grille restaurants but we... More

Capitol Grille is one of the few restaurants that actually pays attention to your requests for a quiet table. The wait staff is well trained and familiar with the ins and outs of the menu. The food ranges from good to excellent. They go all out for special occasions so this is a really good choice for a birthday or... More
