Description: When seeking an exceptional dining experience, Stamfordites need look no further than their own backyard. At The Capital Grille in Stamford Town Center, dry aged steaks and 20 year-old Scotch fortify Fortune 500 power brokers and power shoppers alike, while refreshing cocktails and irresistible appetizers delight patrons of the Palace Theatre and Rich Forum. Clearly, distinctive dining is not reserved for that larger city down the road. As a charming young lady once said, there's no place like home.

“Ask for Jermaine as your waiter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

Our waiter had such pride. He knew all about the dishes, the restaurant, the chain etc. He was great. Tomato salad, mashed potatoes, scallops and bread were unbelievable. Lamb was a bit gamey. Hard to believe that the same chain owns Red Lobster and Olive Garden. Ambiance was nice but bait noisey. Free valet parking.

“As expected, nice place - good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

Just enjoyed perfectly prepared scallops on a bed of rice, corn and fresh herbs sprinkled with some cilantro - it was delicious! Nice place, excellent server: Jeremy, classy and attentive. I'd visit again if I'm in town.

“Don't bother - I agree with a similar November review”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We went as a couple on a Sunday night. The waiter seemed robotic with no personality which I can deal with if the food is o.k. Ordered the Delmonico steak medium and chicken breast entrees. The steak came very rare. I sent it back and the manager did walk by and apologized. He then offered a side dish. The steak came out a while later and as I cut into it, noticied that it was 50% fat (no joke). This steak made Outback look like Ruth Chris or Mortons. The waiter stated "well you already sent it back once, what can I do and that he described it as marblized (another word for a large amount of fat)." The manager again walked by and quickly stated that he would not charge for the steak. I was extremely surprised that they would even serve a piece of meat like that. As it turned out the chicken was also a little dry but my wife did not want to bring up another complaint after addressing this one. I commend the manager for trying his best but the rest of the experience was sub par for any restaurant especially one that charges these prices.

“Stay away from the seafood here”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Upper level steak house with some seafood offerings that were disappointing....expensive and small portions of scallops....tiny lobster tail with steak combo and special oysters that were not even fully freed from their shell when served. I really liked the free tastes of special alcoholic drinks but the price of the meal vs quality/quantity was a bit disappointing....if you want a really good steak and not looking for a deal...you will enjoy Capital Grill....but everything is ala carte and avoid the seafood..not close to being worth the $$

“Grezt Steakhouse in Stamford”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Friendly, helpful staff. When we returned, asked for same waiter who remembered what our grandson liked and took care of the young man. Made suggestions to our guests, and added to the evening.
