Description: The train may have left the station, but you don't have to miss out on the most extraordinary steak around. Join us in Union Station for dry aged steak that The Providence Journal lauds as having, “only gotten better with time.” We’re just one block away from the RI Convention Center and Dunkin’ Donuts Center. Conveniently, we’re also just the spot Rhode Island Monthly says is “Best Restaurant to Impress.”

We had made reservations for my sons birthday last Saturday night and was very unhappy with the experience. We had picked the Capital Grille for the formal experience but came away with a experience that will not bring us back. From the moment we arrived to the moment we paid our bill. For the quality of the food that we... More

We enjoyed the restaurant twice during our stay. It was outstanding both nights. Wednesday evening it was busy - though quieter - we enjoyed a lovely evening together, chatting and relaxing from our travels. On Saturday - the energy level was much higher - the staff working to keep tables moving - at times we felt rushed and the attention... More

My wife & I decided to try this restaurant knowing it was very pricey but found the food, atmosphere, and waitstaff the best experience in a long time. After our meal the manager came over to check on us and the waiter was always there when needed. He made suggestions on what the chef was suggesting and even supplied us... More

So it is pretty expensive to eat here with steaks ranging from 45-50 dollars and you also have to buy sides separately at 10-16 dollars. The sides are very big so buy just one to share and there are specials of the night that came with a side for around 47 dollars. I'm not a huge steak fan but everyone... More

Okay, if you're going to The Capitol Grill, you know the food will be great and the prices expensive. I want to elaborate on the great service from start to finish. Greeted warmly by the hostess, went to the bar for a drink while waiting for our table. Tim, our bartender was quick to assist us, made drink recommendations and... More

Restaurant was top level experience. We first started of in the bar with a few drinks, then we went to the table. Waiter was very professional and service was quick and flawless. The steak and lobster tails was a special on the menu, and it was really cooked to perfection. High price, but quality is in line with the price.

My wife and I enjoyed our anniversary dinner at the Capital Grille in Providence. Not only is the food excellent - well prepared and presented but you can't judge the dinning experience only on the food. The service here is really fantastic. Our server - Tim did a remarkable job of making you feel like your the most important table... More

Location was an easy 5 minute walk from our Omni hotel. Space was very nice and we received a complimentary champagne toast when arrived. We sat outside and our waiter despite everyone else being inside never forgot about us. Also received dessert on the house. Our waiter Tobias was one of the best we ever had

You will never have a bad meal at the Capital Grille. The food, service and atmosphere are always great. It's a great place to go for a special occasion ot to impress someone important. It is not cheap however. Expect to spend $75 to $100 per person depending on what you order. I had the Beef Tenderloin and Lobster Tail... More
