If you are looking for "Old School" service in a high profile restaurant, this is your place. Nostalgic decor with clientele from 20 somethings to business suits. Ala carte menu and a bit pricey but the steaks are awesome and the sides delicious. Friendly staff and attentive servers will make this a top ten meal that you will soon not... More

Delicious steak - large portions, perfect taste, and very tender. In addition, rose petals are placed at your table to celebrate your anniversary. Alternatively, confetti is placed to celebrate birthdays. Desserts were, of course, equal in quality and quantity to the main courses. It made for a very memorable evening. Be sure to ask for a photo to be taken.... More

Had dinner this evening...party of five. Every meal was perfect. We called ahead because we had a fussy eater and they told us they would accomodate him and they did. He ordered plain mac & cheese...and the whole table shared it was so delicious. Sean Goodwin was our waiter and we couldn't have asked for better service. He made great... More

My wife and I recently dined at the Capital Grille, Newton. Ma. for her birthday. The warm welcome and happy birthday's were wonderful. The service and extra attention because of the celebration was exceptional. We have celebrated several special occasions at this restaurant and highly recommend for quality of food and service.

We're trying Capital Grill -Chestnuthill for the first time during restaurant week. We've been to the one in Boston and it's not the same at all. Chestnutllhill is so much better... You'd think it was two different restaurant. Absolutely fantastic, delicious meals. Most places reduce the size of the meal during restaurant week but not here. Our waiter, Sean, was... More

This was our first time dining at this chain and we had a great experience. We arrived 15 minutes early for our 5:30pm reservation and were seated promptly. I had the onion soup which was good but not memorable and the bone in Kona crusted sirloin which I loved. The steak was cooked perfectly medium well, as requested and was... More

Everything is worth spending a little bit more, Denise is awesome, she'll take care of you like no other and the manager Jeff Dixon is very professional going around making sure everything is perfect and will stop by welcoming you giving a warm touch to such an elegant atmosphere. It was the best choice for our Valentine's Day.

Truly one of the worst dinner experiences I've ever had, from beginning to end. Arrive at 6:55 for 7:00 It seems you need to be a regular and actually know the hostess to get seated. Four other couples came in after us and got seated right away. While we waited, by the way, we saw 4 full-length fur coats come... More
