This is our "go to" restaurant for our weekend date nights, especially for an excellent steak and excellent service (Moe is the waiter we always request). Love the "generous pour" event in the summer - you get a variety of wines (at least 6) to choose from and you can have a glass (or more) of each for less than... More

Last night (July 21) was an exceptional experience for the six of us at The Capital Grille Chestnut Hill, MA. Jeff Dixon, the Manager right from my initial reservation, took the reins and created an evening for our daughter's 21st birthday that she exclaimed was being treated "like a Royal". Mr Dixon is a man of professionalism, attention to detail... More

I spent my first ten years after college as a bartender at some of Boston's best venues, and also taught bartending for some of those years. I know a great bartender when I see one, but I only see one every few years or so. There are a lot of competent bartenders in the region but they tend to excel... More

For years this restaurant has served very consistently great steaks and great service. It's hard to find a flaw in this restaurant, and I dare to say it's better than its sister downtown Boston. Excellent quality of food, superb wine list. The wait staff is friendly and very knowledgable Love it! You should go? Just make sure not to take... More

Consistently very good restaurant. Prices are high, but portions are big and service is excellent. We are fish eaters; however, our friends ordered steak and all were completely satisfied. There is a good selection of side dishes (typical steak house fare) and good selection of drinks. But, beware, our martinis were so big and so strong that we practically fell... More

Our anniversary dinner last Fall cost a lot of money which we should have saved for a much more satisfying meal. Our steaks were no better tasting than steaks we have had at other restaurants at 1/3 the price. The steaks at Capital Grille were huge but not very tasty and kind of tough too. They gave us a free... More

We went there for a birthday party (4 people) and had a wonderful time. The service was amazing. The food was great- steaks all around with brussel sprouts, and Sam's potatoes. The Brussel Sprouts were the best I have had. They brought out a complimentary dessert with happy birthday written in chocolate. The whole night was amazing, perfectly timed food,... More

We like the Capital Grille not only for the great steaks and excellent service but also because it has a nice bar. My 92-year old mother-in-law likes to sit at it before dinner as it reminds her of younger days in NYC! I like it because they stir my Hendricks's martini instead of shaking it. Oh yes, the steaks are... More

This was our first time at the Capital Gille in Newton and we will definitely return. We had a great dinner and the service was top-notch. Nice atmosphere, where you can sit and have a private conversation in a romantic setting, even with the restaurant being at 100% capacity. From appetizer to dessert, everything was delicious! Even the valet parking... More

What can I say but that dining at Capital Grill is worth the experience! this is not the restaurant for those on a budget. But if you can afford to splurge for that special occasion, then you will be treated to fine dining, fine service, and fine ambiance.
