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.

Food and service were fabulous! Our waiter Daniel was excellent along with the rest of the staff. Would go back without any hesitation next time I am Stamford. Yes it is a bit pricey as some state, but well worth it!

The food is excellent along with the service. It’s a pricy restaurant so I don’t go too often, however, that makes it even more of a special place. Love the old “men’s” club feel of it. Like I’m breaking rules being there.
