My friends and I were celebrating 4 birthdays. There were 7 of us all together. ...Matthew was our waiter and he is everything a waiter should be. A+ Thank you Matthew! One person had a food allergy and another person had dietary restrictions. Matthew told kitchen about all of these. He even brought butter with no salt for the person... More

For a steak house the steak is pretty good, but not 60 dollars a steak good. We went here for our anniversary and I got food poisoning from the seafood appetizer. They do give you a free dessert for your anniversary though. Our waiter was nice but he was either new or was pretty busy because the service was a... More

We were celebrating a birthday, due to weather conditions babysitter cancelled and we had to take our 1 year old who has recently decided to take up vocal expression (Yes, we were those dreaded parents). The wait staff could not have been more sympathetic to our situation and they didn't miss a beat in excellent service. Lovely variety of beads... More

We had dinner for a group of 7. We all like the steaks. Steaks were well seasoned. However, they were a bit over-cooked.

Staff is always outstanding, especially on special occasions like birthdays/graduations. They make sure to decorate the table if you tell them when you make the reservation beforehand. Meats and fish are terrific, very good size portions. When they offer the special wine pairing at the single price it is really nice to be able to try so many different wines... More

We had a family reunion dinner at the Newton Capital Grille after thanksgiving. We chose it mainly because it was close to where we lived and had 4 young children in the party of 12. Having been to a number of other Capital Grille we thought it would be a good choice. However, 15 minutes into the meal a balding... More

After the overly long wait for our table to be prepared, we then had very attentive service throughout the meal. However the whole place is too sports bar-ish for our taste and we were delighted to be in a private dining room. The steaks were well cooked to our taste (rare) and we shared two starters between four which was... More

Took a party of 7 (three generations) here for a birthday celebration. Everyone came away happy - even the young kids. It is expensive, to be sure ($60 per person, including wine and gratuity) but probably worth it, considering the location. Our server Jill was attentive and made sure everyone was content. The food was good and included a birthday... More

You'll quickly see why The Boston Globe proclaimed “we've never been happier in our lives,” after an evening at The Capital Grille. Drawing from its New England roots, The Capital Grille’s relaxed elegance and style have become a trademark of the Boston area. Join us just east of the Atrium Mall and a million miles fromthe ordinary.
