I eloped in July, and as our first meal as a married couple we decided to make a reservation at the Capital Grille. Our server was Jill C. She was amazing! She knew it was our wedding day and there were rose petals on the table when we sat down. We had our meal, which consisted of two amazing steaks.... More

Try the filet with kona coffee on top. Out of this world. Expensive but the service is always number one and the steaks are the best.

Everything was "perfect", which is hard to find in a restaurant these days. Other than waiting 15 minutes with a reservation we had a great table and an superb waiter. The food was excellent! Chowder and Caesar salad were great and the porterhouse steak was cooked to perfection. It was our anniversary and they had little hearts on the table... More

Excellent place to go and take clients to or to go on an intimate date. If you are concerned about how much things will cost then this may not be your place as they food is some of the highest in the area. I still enjoy the place and fine it to be a very intimate and soft atmosphere.

Very crowded, which is to be expected on a Saturday evening. However, what was not expected was the noise level. Nearly impossible to converse at our table due to overall clamor, and in particular a nearby table full of boors shouting and high-fiving. On mentioning this to the manager, I was told 'gee it's busy tonight'. Cocktail orders took quite... More

I have been to this location at least 30 times over the last 10 years, both for small dinners of 4 and groups of 20 in the back room. I have several dishes that i know well, and have always received top notch service and food. Was there last weekend - had not been in over a year or so.... More

Our first time at Capitol Grill for a birthday dinner Was wonderful. The only reason I rated the restuarant 4 rather than 5 is because of the noise level. There was a very loud private party at one end of the dining room and the noise filled the whole dining room. The restaurant really should have a private function room... More

Those are popular nowadays all over the world. It did not cross my mind that she will not enjoy her meal as ,of course, this is a steak house... What... More

After a number of recent meals various Capital Grille’s around the country, I think I’m coming to the conclusion that Capital Grille is the most consistent and dependable of all of the high end steak house chains.… my dinner here last night with my family helped form that opinion. We’ve dined here before and again enjoyed a fabulous meal on... More

Drawing from its New England roots, The Capital Grille’s relaxed elegance and style have become a trademark of the Boston area.
