You'll quickly see why The Boston Globe proclaimed “we've never been happier in our lives,” after an evening at The Capital Grille. Drawing from its New England roots, The Capital Grille’s relaxed elegance and style have become a trademark of the Boston area. Join us just east of the Atrium Mall and a million miles fromthe ordinary.

Great Food

Let me start by saying the food was cooked to perfection and was amazing. The Kona steak was amazing, mashed potatoes great and wedge salad awesome. The only reason I cant rare this perfect was due to multiple server errors. The server brought a salad to my coworker after he ordered soup. My... read more

I have been to the Capital Grille in Boston and in Las Vegas and this experience was one of the most disappointing of all my restaurant visits. We checked in at the hostess desk a little before our reservation time. We were greeted very pleasantly. I needed to go to the restroom and the hostess showed me where it was.... More

I've been a faithful customer of Capital Grille for the last 15+ years, eating at most of their restaurants in the US as I travel almost weekly for work. We went to the Chestnut Hill location last night to celebrate my son's birthday. Sometimes little things go wrong and you overlook them but at an establishment with this reputation and... More

Had a great time with the family. I had a ribeye and it was cooked to perfection and so tender it melted away as I ate it. The sides were terrific as well. Both my wife and daughter enjoyed everything as well. The service was excellent.

The Capital Grille is a franchise and one of the best. I have enjoyed eating at this restaurant in Washington, DC, Providence, RI, Boston, MA and Stamford, CT. Regardless of the occasion, be it celebratory or business, this restaurant excels in ambiance, service, and of course, menu selections.

What we find here is always what we are looking for: a great dining experience. Whether it is the steak (always cooked as ordered), an appetizer, drinks, or whatever, we leave with a smile. The staff is experienced, and competent.

This is your average neighborhood place with nice salads and sandwiches for lunch at reasonable prices. The atmosphere is a standard pub, warm and cozy.

This is the perfect place for a good talk over a great meal and drinks. It's got ambiance, but it isn't noisy. You can talk and hear your partner. The steaks, sides and lobster bisque were delicious.

This past weekend I was asked to go to The Capital Grille for lunch. I have always heard of this restaurant as being expensive and pleasant. When it comes down to good food there is usually a price to pay for quality. There was something lovely about the atmosphere. The service was wonderful! They provided a selection of bread, which...
