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.”

Pricey But Superb

Enjoyed a group lunch here recently. Didn't realize they were open for lunch until just recently but was impressed by the ambiance, service and the food. Although it's a bit pricey vs. other lunch alternatives, it is a nice change of pace for special occasions.

Went with my boyfriend for dinner and we both had a delicious meal. He had the sirloin steak, medium rare. I had raw oysters and the french onion soup. Everything was delicious! Plated beautifully and timed well. Our server, Daniel B., was superb. He was attentive, polite, and very responsive. He refilled our drinks before we could ask and even... More

Mark was a great waiter. Attentive, patient, and informative. My steak was excellent, great cut and cooked perfectly. Bowl of French Onion soup was good, as was the calamari. The bottle of Quantum from Beringer was very good. The only major issue is the bar area. There is not enough space to sit or even stand if you arrive early... More

The Capital Grille is the kind of fine dining restaurant that you save for a special occasion. The service is perfect and while the price may be on the high end. Who wouldn't be willing to pay more for a meal that is fantastic. The ingredients are fresh and the food is prepared to perfection.

Exceptional service - the waiter gave great insight to how to have the food prepared, what to order, even helped as we wanted to share our plates. Outstanding food - the flavor of the steak and the sides was melt in your mouth good.

My husband and I recently had a lovely evening at the Capital Grille. The food was tasty, although the portions were a bit extreme. We could have shared all the side dishes and still have plenty left on the plate. We could have used the baked potato as a kayak! My husband steak was perfect. I am a vegetarian, so... More

Its great, everyone that works there is really friendly. You can make a reservation online on their website or through OpenTable, which I think are connected. I love... More

A lot of attorneys and legislators eat here. Good wine list. The meat products are good to great. This is not my go-to place because I am a vegetarian. But still I would recommend it if you like steak cooked to your order. I have found it to be always noisy except in the private rooms.

While a chain restaurant, this place knows how to do a good steak. Atmosphere is great, service is always first class and great wine list as well.
