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.”

Service at the Capital Grille is impecable. Attentive, polite, prompt. I ordered a 10 oz filet with spinach and asparagus. I asked for Medium Rare and it came to my table more medium than medium rare. The bread basket is great...at least 5 choices of breads to choose from. I loved the sauteed spinach, the asparagus were ok, not great.

The service is impeccable! We hadn't been in a while, but everything we ate was awesome. We started with cocktails. I love the way they make my raspberry vodka glimlet! Followed by fried calamari. Soooo good! For dinner, we shared a 22 oz Delmonico (rib eye) steak (medium rare), a side of sautéed mushrooms and a side of asparagus. We... More

We had only eaten here 2 times previous - and always in the dining room for a special occasion. This time we did the burger & wine pairing at the bar & both were exceptional. One of my top burgers of all time. We be going again soon

This plkace has the most professional bar staff I have met in a long time. When you ask about other area venues, they compliment the good and avoid saying much about the bad. The wine list is extensive and the cocktails are not just the run of the mill, but lots of adventure & imagination. Drop by....

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
