My husband, daughter, and I had dinner at the Capital Grille in Lombard last night. We have been Morton's fans for many years and had been meaning to try Capital Grille but never got around to it. Our so called 'status' with Mortons had run out with no birthday incentive given to us.....so we celebrated my husband's birthday at Capital Grille instead! The service by Rocco was fantastic....not rushed but perfectly timed to our needs. The food was fantastic as well....from the calamari to the steaks and lobster to the lobster Mac and cheese to our desserts! We will be back!

Great ambiance, amazing service (look for Megan Bowers - she is the best!), superb wine selection and mouth-watering, delicious food at the Western 'burbs! Worth every dollar spent. Will be back again for sure.

We traveled to the Chicago area as part of a lengthy road trip to attend multiple family events. We took my Dad and several family members to Capital Grille to celebrate my Dads 89th birthday. He loves steak au poivre and the Capital Grille has one of the best there is. I had the sirloin and it was cooked to perfection. The only nit was that my Dads steak came somewhat undercooked and we had to send it back...it was returned in a few minutes cooked as he likes it. The waiter gave us a couple complimentary side dishes to compensate for the error...very nice. He also provided my Dad with a complimentary birthday dessert with a candle. I've been to many fine steakhouses but can't think of any that can consistently top the Capital Grille. The wine list is quite extensive starting at somewhat moderate prices and ranging up to atmospheric so ther is likely to be something for everyone. Service was very professional without being snobby. The decor is very plush and seating is comfortable. A good time was had by all.

My husband and I dined for our anniversary this past weekend.
My entree was on the overdone side when it first came to the table, I hesitated on sending it back to the kitchen. When our server Megan agreeded with me that it was not prepared to my order, she immediatley took it back. Within less then 5 minutes my correcting ordered steak arrived.
We also enjoyed the complimentary champagne toast, and rose petals at our table.
Thank you for the small touches, they made a difference in our celebration.
