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.

“Favorite Steak House”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Stamford's Capital Grille is one of the finest restaurants I've ever been to. The food is tops and the service is exemplary. I recommend the filet mignon with the lobster mac side dish and a nice red cab.

“Items under cooked”
Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

I had ordered the signature burger as medium rare and my friend tips well done. Her tips were mostly done correctly but a few tips were pink. My burger I expected it pink but it came to me rare. My other friend order the crab lobster burger and the told him the order was for a lobster roll. I guess listening skill need to be improved at the grill. Also it appears the expect you to send it back to be cooked properly

“Amazingly consistently good over the years”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

If you are looking for surprises, this is not the place. The menu changes slightly from time to time, because I guess the majority of patrons go to Capital Grille knowing beforehand what they want.
And they are not disappointed. The only inconsistency I could find, over the years, is the service: this last time the waiter was not exactly up to the expectations (yawning while explaining the menu it's not acceptable).
Apart from that, this is the restaurant for meat lovers.

“Best ever”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

We ate on a Thursday night as a family of 10. The service was excellent, even catering for smaller children who could not manage a steak. Best ever chicken tenders, even better than KFC - the kids told us!
For the adults, the usual array of different cuts of meat, but the Dolminico rib eye (spelling?) was by far the best cut of meat that we had ever tried. The steaks are a little over cooked compared to western standards, so beware and order precisely. The potato gratin is to die for, and compliments most steak dishes better than even fries!
We will return.
