“Great Restaurant for Business”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

I had a dinner meeting on a stormy Friday night. Valet was busy and I didn't have to wait.
Dinner was fabulous. We had private room off the main restaurant which helped greatly with noise. Ask to have David as your waiter. He is the bomb! Very knowledgeable and attentive. He knows a lot about wines, and of course the food but he is extremely knowledgeable about other restaurants and has tons of experience. Fun to talk to, made us feel excited about our meals. One of our party was having a birthday, we did not tell him or the staff but he overheard our conversation. He went out of his way to make her feel special and have a wonderful desert without the corny singing by staff, though we all did.

Food was outstanding. I had steak and king crab legs cooked to perfection. Wine recommendations went well with diner, we all chose differently and by the glass and it was still excellent. Deserts are HUGE so must share or take home. I must say our group was unanimous in accolades for the food, wine and service. It made the business part of the meeting much more palatable.

Price was high, but we expensed it. Best way to go.

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Expect to pay top dollar for this fine restaurant. We enjoyed the oysters, Delmonico Steaks and filet Mignon . Soups and salads were good as well. Unfortunately, David our waiter was very slow in getting our orders to us otherwise this would have been a sure 5 star rating. Expect to pay $$$ but it is worth it for a special occasion.

“Always great food and amazing service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

My wife and I went here for our anniversary and we both commented on how great a meal it was.

We made reservations and let them know and they had a table ready for us covered in rose petals. Our server Kelly was outstanding. She made us feel like we were the only people in the restaurant. They brought our perfectly prepared steaks and an amazing desert to celebrate our anniversary.

We will be back!!

“Hate to say it..but rivals Morton's!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

My husband, daughter, and I had dinner at the Capital Grille in Lombard last night. We have been Morton's fans for many years and had been meaning to try Capital Grille but never got around to it. Our so called 'status' with Mortons had run out with no birthday incentive given to us.....so we celebrated my husband's birthday at Capital Grille instead! The service by Rocco was fantastic....not rushed but perfectly timed to our needs. The food was fantastic as well....from the calamari to the steaks and lobster to the lobster Mac and cheese to our desserts! We will be back!

Great ambiance, amazing service (look for Megan Bowers - she is the best!), superb wine selection and mouth-watering, delicious food at the Western 'burbs! Worth every dollar spent. Will be back again for sure.
