Description: 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.

“Country Club Chic, downtown”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Where do I start? Wonderfully decorated country club restaurant right in downtown Stamford, Great attentive service, great menu, great price. Enough said. (Well I'll just add, suitable for a casual and quick lunch - as well as more than smart enough to entertain business clients in impressive surroundings). In short - loved it!

“Wonderful Food and Service”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

If you want the best steak, lamb and anything else, this is the place for you. It's expensive, but so worth it. The meats are aged to prefection and the service is just as good. Good wines, wonderful desserts. What more could you ask for?

“Never a bad visit”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

I first dined at a Captial Grille in Arizona. I was happy to learn of one in the Connecticut area. I absolutely love this place!! They have a wonderful pineapple soaked vodka drink. Fo the wine lovers they have an extensive list. I have never encountered a bad meal here. The service has always been 5 star. The food is absolutely delicious and the desserts are sinful.

“What High Standards Can Do to a Chain Restaurant”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

I've eaten at the Washington DC restaurant and the one in Stamford, CT.
Both are beautifully appointed and there is a warmth about the place as well as the welcome you are given. You are immediately led to your table, and as soon as you are seated, your drink orders are requested, your water is poured and the bread basket is served.
The contents are a delicious introduction to the meal, with an interesting variety. The staff is in sync with your wishes and if you are busy in conversation, the menu is not thrust upon you nor does the waiter offer a description of the specials. When you are ready to order, you have a choice of various cuts of beef but also lamb, fish and vegetarian, if you like. The meats are perfect and perfectly done. Medium rare means just that. The salads are not original but good. Mac and cheese is delicious as are spinach and onion rings. Desserts are up to the meat standards and cappuccino makes a perfect end to the (satisfying in every way) meal. The tab is high but for an experience, not a meal, GO!
