This is my first rate On TA. Got good ratings on trip advisor, service was outstanding, but the whole reason we went was for a good steak! We both got filets and while the flavor was okay we both agreed they'd been cooked to well not medium as we requested. It was so dark we couldn't tell what our steak... More

I did a walk-in for dinner and was fortunate I managed to get a high-top table facing the bar. I ordered the clam chowder soup as a starter, and for the main course, I had the sirloin steak with lobster tail (it was the chef special). Ordered a glass of wine as well. The soup was very good, very flavourful... More

We booked a meal at the Capital Grille for our first night in Boston, where we are on holiday celebrating our first wedding anniversary. We had mentioned on the reservation that we were celebrating, and also that I suffer from food allergies. When we were led to our table (a quiet booth - definitely request a booth if possible) we...

This wasn't my first time at this restaurant and this will definitely not be my last time at this restaurant. I came here for restaurant week and the menu was everything I hoped it would be. I got the Kobe bone in rib eye steak--yum. The food was wonderful as always and it's always a good deal to come during... More

This place definitely had THE BEST lamb I have had. Ever. And I love lamb and try to have it everywhere just for comparisons. All friends we went with also described their meals in superlative adjectives. Go for it, if you are in town. Not on the cheap end, but all worth its price. The place was busy - I... More

Had a wonderful dinner at The Capital Grille tonight with a last-minute reservation (they were full). As soon as we were seated, our waiter (Adnan) came over to welcome us by name, which he obviously obtained from the reservation desk. Now we have dined in quality establishments around the world, and this had never happened before! This attention to detail... More

Had a wonderful lunch experience. Attached to Hynes Convention so easy to get there. Service was prompt & friendly. Food was outstanding - clam chowder & scallops with risotto. The atmosphere was sophisticated. All around a great dining experience.

Very nice meal last night at the Chestnuthill location. The physical premises are nice....for 15 years ago. They need an update as far as decorating. That said you don't go there for the decor, the steaks and service were well done! You can't leave hungry as the focus is on quality food and service. You won't be disappointed.
