“Excellent Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

My husband and I ate at the Capital Grille becuase we were staying at the Intercontinental attached to it. The food is a bit pricey although it is excellent. The wait staff at one point heard me mention that I was planning to order the Temperanillo so the waitress brought me a taste of it to try. If you are planning to eat at this restaurant, do yourself a favor and order the Lobster Mac and Cheese as a side dish. It was wonderful!

“Really Enjoyable Evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

We went to this restaurant while staying at the Intercontental next door. It proved a great choice. Firstly our Waiter was friendly and interesting. We enjoyed his wide knowledge of international wines and he looked after us well throughout our evening.

The food proved excellent. Our Waiter suggested the salad which was tasty to begin our meal. Great breads. We opted for scallops, lobster tail, mash and steak. All cooked well and generous in portions. This is not a cheap place to eat - but it is a quality meal and worth paying to enjoy.

We would recommend a visit and return when next in Chicago.

“Cut down on the chatter ....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Nice restaurant, good food but after a long day of travel the waiter was just too much. He talked
and talked and talked and talked. I really thought he would never take our order and just leave.
And still he talked and talked and talked. It was all about the menu but still. Would eat elsewhere if in the area again.

“Too much of a great thing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

We were able to get a private room at the last minute and it was GREAT. The food was very good, the wines met the needds of our picky group, and the service was excellent.

The prices are moderately high, but the amount of food is very large.

“Excellent steakhouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012 via mobile

Had a dinner with 6 other business associates and we all were very pleased with the quality of the food and service. As typical in these types of establishments, it is a bit noisy, but it wasn't too bad. The wine list was outstanding. Very highly recommend.
