We visited 3 times for dinner in a short period of time while in town for business. We were always very satisfied with the food and service. The striploin had the correct temperature every time and tasted excellent. We have been to a lot of...different Capital Grilles around the US and this is definitely one of the best. The service by Blake P. was very special. She went the extra mile for us. Also the manager Demi S. was very attentive and welcoming. We will definitely come back.More

My husband and I have nonstop talked about this meal! This was our wedding night…and I put it in the special instructions when I made the reservation hoping to get a decent table. What we really got was EXTRAORDINARY service from the beginning! As soon...as I said my name they knew we had just been married…the FOH manager escorted us to our table which was a great location in the restaurant. They brought us a complimentary champagne toast to celebrate. Anthony was our server and he was so attentive and kind. He did an amazing job! The cosmo was the best I have ever had, they really know how to make a drink! The food, we cant stop talking about the food. It was absolutely perfect….everything. You can tell how much they pay attention to little details. After our dinner they brought us complimentary desert and a printed photo. FOH manager also stopped by and congratulated us . This was one of those meals you do not forget and I so hope we are able to go back for our anniversary!!More

This was one excellent experience and by far the best one for this time in our 3 day holiday in Chicago. This restaurant holds the high quality in all the expected parts of going to this high quality restaurant. This is a real steak house...where quality of cooking and ingredients exceed our spoiled pallet! The wine choices by glass was also excellent and made us pair perfect the dishes we ate. Will definitely recommend Capital Grille to people appreciating the top quality placeMore

The food was absolutely fantastic !!! The ladies had the best tuna steak ever and the rib eye and the New York strip was equally good. Service attentive and helpful. Only downside … cocktails were below average. Skip them and enjoy the food

Enjoyed a great business meal at Capital Grille last night. The wait staff was impeccable, and the food was prepared perfectly. The filet we had was incredible as a 10oz piece, thick and cooked to perfection. The wedge salad is an all time favorite and...was outstanding as well. There is simply nothing I have to say with any vein of negativity. When I'm back in Chicago, I'll be stopping there again!More

Wonderful food and service. The ribeye was cooked and seasoned perfectly. We tried several sides and each was wonderful. I would highly recommend it.

Came here with a small group of people to celebrate a college graduation and they really did an excellent job of capping off a great day. The service was on point with glasses constantly filled and our server on hand whenever we needed anything. Here...is the way you know someone and someplace know what they are doing. The service magically flows with the evening and the food and drink appear on time and without any issues or incident and just seamlessly become part of the event. I know how better to explain it but Rebecca did a great job anticipating our needs and there isn't any way the meal could have been any better. The staff went out of their way to ensure we had a great table and went above and beyond to provide some decorations for graduation and raised the bar to an 11 for any celebratory meal we'll have in the future. If you want to have an over the top excellent celebratory meal; look no further. This is THE place to go and we'll be back for the next event.More
