Not cheap but always a winner. great steak, solid wine list, and tasty side dishes. If you go , ask for Denise. She is the best server and always treats you as a special guest. the coconut cream pie for dessert is worth the hour on the treadmill you will spend in order to bank enough calories! If you want...

My husband and I had a wonderful anniversary dinner at the Capital Grill in Chestnut Hill. Upon hearing it was our anniversary, we were seated at a table which had rose petals sprinkled across the tablecloth and on the table were two champagne flutes with champagne sparkling in them. The dinner itself was delicious and we pretty much are everything.... More

I eat at this Capital Grille once or twice a year for either a special occasion or business dinner. Last night was a business dinner for a party of 7. I had called to confirm the reservation for 7, but they had me down for 6. We waited and they reset the table. It is loud and hard to hear... More

There are so many steak restaurants in Boston to choose from. I use to like Capital Grille. My mother took my husband and I, and my brother and his wife last Sunday the 21st. It was such a disappointment. After taking our order our waiter disappeared, my mother's order was wrong, her side order didn't come out until my mother... More

We had an outstanding experience at this restaurant. Not only was everything cooked to form and expectation from a Capitol Grill, but more importantly, the service was too notch! We arrived to town late and had one of the last reservation times available. They did not push us out or hurry us. I will always choose this steakhouse chain based... More

We planned to sit at the bar and split a meal after shopping all day, but the hostess assured us that we could sit in the dining room and enjoy all the amenities, whether we split a meal or not. The filet mignon was perfect and the blue cheese dressing was chunky and delicious. Everything about it we loved.

Was my birthday but did not schedule anything since work was unpredictable. I called last minute to Capital Grille, mentioned it was my birthday and they squeezed us in, restaurant week and all. The restaurant week special was delicious, got the kona steak and husband enjoyed the filet mignon. The waitress was very helpful suggesting the steak as "medium plus"... More

We often go to this location for special occasions. We went during Boston's formerly named Restaurant week for a fixed price menu. The choices were selected from the regular menu and the same portion size. Regular A+ service. fantastic food. they did not skimp on excellence at all.

I chose Capital Grille in Chestnut Hill for a surprise birthday party for my husband. From the first contact with Caroline in the Catering Department to the food service on the night of the party, everything was PERFECT. Caroline was easy to contact, helpful and very responsive. Our servers, Joe and Tracy, went out of their way to make sure... More

I avoid going here becasue I find the steak too salty. There is nothing special about this place except the bill. For my money I'd go to Sorelina's every time. In fact, I think I'll review that restaurant instead.
