Busy time on the weekend so wait times a bit longer, however well worth the wait. Steak was amazing and surprised me with a birthday dessert as well. Pricy, but worth the occasional splurge.

Main distraction was a drunk group of male co-workers sitting at the table next to us in front of the glass at the kitchen. Their voices were amplified as the sound echoed back off the glass in to the room. Obscenities and all. Kind of distracting for a business meal where we attempted to discuss business over the roar of laughter and them sharing images with each other with their phones. Not sure why we seated directly adjacent to them when it was obvious these guys were off the rails at this point and the restaurant was fairly empty late on a Tuesday night.

Great experience. Carolyn at the bar was lovely, Jordan was a great server, and the NY Strip Au Poivre was the perfect medium rare with Courvoisier cream sauce. Shallot butter on the side is a plus. Duxbury oysters and tuna tartare were also excellent, as was the Stoli Doli.

Our first time here and will definitely not be our last. We found a new favorite. Everything about this experience was spectacular. Our server, Josh M. was incredibly knowledgeable about the food, drinks and how they were prepared. He was readily available but not hovering, which was great. We were celebrating a birthday and the restaurant did a great job with that as well. I only wish our stomachs had more room to try more things so we now have to go back. The trouble will be knowing we had that bacon appetizer it will be very hard to choose anything else. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the lobster tails were spectacular. The quality of the food and service was well worth the price we paid. Can't wait to go back.

I celebrated my birthday at the Capital Grille. Our server, Michelle, let us pace our dinner the way we wanted. The cocktails and food were excellent. I had indicated that it was a birthday celebration on my reservation and the Capital Grille provided a complimentary dessert. The restaurant is not cheap, but the quality of the food and the experience are worth the cost.

I am generally a “fan” and enjoy the Capital Grill experience. This is the second time in the last month or so where the food was average at best. Hope I just caught them on a bad night.

My wife and I dined here during restaurant week. A wonderful experience at the capital grill. Unfortunately, due
to the great value of restaurant week, the clientele in the restaurant left a lot to be desired. The table
Next to us had zero manners and treated the waitstaff like hired help. Two individuals at the bar while waiting for a table had zero
Dining etiquette and ruined the ambiance of the evening. Capital grill should rethink the approach to restaurant week. My wife and I are laid back and can roll with most things. We do not tolerate rude or individuals with zero cooth. Unfortunately there were plenty on Sat night. The food and service were stellar as usual. Great job to the waitstaff for putting up with a few of these individuals who ruin a great time had by all.

This is easily my favorite restaurant in the area. Always treated extremely well there my the whole staff. Our steaks last night were made to perfection. Love that you can create a profile with an assigned waiter. Dave always takes good care of us. David is one of the nicest managing partners you will find in the business. Will continue to be my go to restaurant for sure! Thanks as always for a 5 star night!

First time at Capital Grille and we had a great time! They really went the extra mile to make sure our Anniversary was special... rose petals, a card, champagne, dessert, well wishes. But beyond that the food was spectacular! And our server Michelle was terrific and so attentive and fun. Will be going back again, and next time we will be sure to use the valet parking instead of the garage - didn’t know!
