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.

“Great bar- great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

The Capital Grille always delivers and the Stamford location is top notch. On a recent visit I was alone and ate and the bar. This time I just had the crab cake appetizer and a side of the truffle fries. Fantastic.

The bartender- Mike, was attentive and remembered my name. Excellent service.

I'll definitely go back.

“Consistently Supurb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

In a sea of mediocrity, Capital Grill is always exceptional. I frequently have lunch meetings here, spending 2 hours over a meal. The staff is gracious and accommodating. The steaks are great and salads fresh. I have still yet to feel rushed or patronized.
Expensive, yes. But definitely a very nice place to have a great lunch.
I have never eaten anywhere else where the waiter spontaneously replaced a black napkin for the linty white one because I was wearing black trousers. Bravo.

“Great time in Barroom”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

My girl and I walked in at 8PM on a Saturday, and were told that there was a 30 min wait for a table. We went to the bar, ordered a drink, and the called us in 10 minutes! We were seated in the barroom. Great atmosphere and terrific food. The chopped salad was great! I actually had roasted chicken breasts with roasted potatoes, and I loved it. My girl had a steak and really enjoyed it. Side orders were fabulous. Sure it's on the pricy side, but the food value is there. There servers were friendly, helpful and professional.

“The Absolute BEST in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Capital Grille in Stamford is hands-down the best steak in town. We have dined there for several business lunches and dinners, and several "family celebrations" and they never fail to please. The staff is very courteous and obliging, the food quality is excellent, the atmosphere has always been very relaxing and impressive. They may be a bit on the pricey side, but you definitely get the most bang for your buck here. HIGHLY recommended!
