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.”

I love this place. Restaurant week rocks for CG. Ordinarily a little on the Pricey side, during restaurant week it is even better. Always professional wait staff guide you through the meal. I had Steak and shrimp, others at our table were also pleased with our meals, rare that we are three for three anywhere. Wines were great as they... More

Exceptional service from Maitre 'd to wait staff. Entrees were outstanding- on a par with Burns Steakhouse in Tampa. The best restaurant experience we've had in at least 15 years.

Excellent service; walking distance to the Courtyard Providence Downtown; great Restaurant Week menu enabled me to try a little bit of everything. Enjoyed it thoroughly.

I had never been to the Capital Grille before and thought a good chance to go would be during restaurant week. I was not disappointed! Our waiter was nice, knowledgable and friendly. Our meals started with a large basket of delicious bread. I always say, you can judge a restaurant by the quality of their bread, and that was true... More

We get to the Cap three or four times a year and never miss the opportunity during Restaurant Weeks when the food and value is off the charts. On this occasion, we had a reservation for lunch and even though there were a number of tables clearly available, they kept us waiting and seated some walk-ins before us. The restaurant... More

I must say the experience at the capital was worth it, the food was good but not excellent. On the other hand the service I must say it was of excellence and very professional, really took good care of me and my guest. I am a little disappointed that my entrée was far from perfect, but the wine I ordered... More

Capital Grille is a chain restaurant, but it is also not quite at the level of the American mega-chain, and it still retains a great deal of the delicious spirit you might expect from any local steakhouse. The particular venue in Providence has always delivered a perfectly made and mouthwatering steak that I can always recommend!

Exceptional Food and Service. Extremely friendly and welcoming staff. Best Ceasar Salad and crab cakes ever. Outside service by Knoll Walsh and the Reception was world class. Jojo and Tomas also value the service.

Very good food, slightly overpriced. Service was good, although table location was not the best. Stay away from tables in the middle of the restaurant if possible, traffic flow is rough.

My husband and I were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary.They treated us so well! When we arrived they had rose petals on the table and gave us free desserts and a glass of champagne. The dessert was to die for! The meal started with an awesome bread basket. The delmonico steak my husband had was delicious and my filet mignon... More
