Never fails, never disappoints. Oysters are top notch and the steaks, as should be expected, amazing. Service is excellent always.

Visited restaurant with business partners. Top notch service. Stayed in the bar to Eat. Great atmosphere. Had the bone in rib. To die for. Costly. But well worth it

I was in the need to fill an evening alone near Burlington. Chose to spoil myself and found the Capital Grille in Tripadvisor. It entirely matched expectations, food, wine, ambience, service - simply perfect! The warm bread just with butter is to die for, the...steak was one of the best I ever had. Spent time before and after at the bar. Very pleasant. All in all - a restaurant like a restaurant should be.More

Lovely restaurant, excellent service, very good food. The only complaint we had was that my husband’s filet was extremely fatty. Given the price we paid, he should have absolutely brought it to the attention of our wonderful waiter, but he hates being that guy. Overall...an enjoyable, but pricy mealMore

We tried the Capital Grille for dinner based on Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. This restaurant is primarily a steakhouse, but there are lots of other options. We started with a seafood platter for 2 which came with oysters, jumbo shrimp and...lobster. It was presented beautifully and tasted amazing. For the entrée we opted for a bone in ribeye and fillet minion at at servers recommendation. Both were cooked perfectly to our requested temperatures. The sides are huge! You really won’t need more than one for a couple. The restaurant was busy even on a Wednesday night, which speaks volumes in itself. I definitely recommend making a reservation in advance. The whole place had a lively vibe. Would highly recommend giving the Capital Grille a try if you like seafood and steak. We will definitely return.More

This was our first time visiting Capitol Grill in this location ( been to Chestnut Hill a few times). We were visiting Boston from overseas and meeting up with family/friends ( party of 7). From the outset the service was superb thanks to Khalid despite...the bathroom/restaurant being really busy. We had vegan and gluten intolerant persons in our group and they were really well catered for despite this being a top notch steakhouse. We ate a variety of seafood starters which were divine. Followed this up with super steaks (NY Strip Kona coated were particularly good). All washed down with good wine and nice cocktails. What not to like!. Looking forward to returning.More

Service was slow but the restaurant was very busy. Server was awesome. 4 of the 6 steaks ordered were overcooked. At this price and their reputation, it was quite disappointing.

Tremendous experience as always. Malik Delgado is the best waiter in the city! Everything is cooked and prepared to perfection and his service takes it up a notch. We have visited this location over 20 times and always go back to Malik. Tremendous. Highly recommend!

The Capital Grille is always solid. Professional staff/service, excellent atmosphere, great chow and libation. Decided to go same day on a Friday night, reservations fully booked. No matter, so headed in with my wife and after a few minutes was able to get 2 seats...at the bar. I like the bar here. 2 great bartenders kept an eye on every patron. Chuck has been here forever... polished and professional. Wines by the glass and cocktails, excellent. Bread basket here is great... my favorite is the onion bread and the raisin pumpernickel. Lump Crabmeat Cocktail, Wedge Salad, Filet Mignon, Cheesecake... all fantastic. The Capital Grille hits the mark in all areas. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDEDMore

We visited during the dine out boston week so we had the set menu and chose the salad, filet mignon and my partner chose to upgrade to the New York steak along with creamed spinach and mash potato followed by cheesecake and flourless chocolate cake....The food was absolutely incredible, all extremely tasty, melt in your mouth and we polished off every plate. They have a good selection of cocktails and wines that aren't overly priced which I was half expecting in a place like this so that was a lovely surprise. The only reason we are giving this a 4 star review is because the service seriously lacked. We were told to wait at the front with all of the other customers for just over 5 mins (fine, it's not an issue), then over the next 20 mins we meet out server and get offered water, then cocktails then bread and then take your order all in separate interactions which was just odd and felt as if they were lengthening the beginning for some reason. Within 5 mins of ordering the salad, it was infront of us which is fine but just odd as they were going so slow and then completely changed the pace. Our steaks followed promptly and although it was delicious no one checked in on us, took over 10 minutes to take my empty plate and no follow up asking how it was. Whilst eating our dessert our server plonked the cheque down whilst dashing off somewhere else, we didn't ask for it and felt very bizarre to be in the middle of eating with no interaction to just have our bill presented to us. Overall the food was incredible and melt in your mouth but the service had an odd pace, lack of interaction and friendliness from the moment you walk in with the hostess to your waiter service. If only they had taken the time to interact it would be a completely different service - maybe they saw two people on their set menu and thought it's not worth their time to serve properly which is a shame.More

Our evening at Capital Grille far exceeded my sky high expectations as I work in an exclusive country club and know exemplary cuisine and service. We were celebrating our daughter's graduation from Northeastern University as an RN (an event that was cancelled in May of...2020 and rescheduled for Nov. 13, 2021). I wanted a special venue for this wonderful milestone and boy, did we get it. When we arrived our table had a "congratulations sign" on it with multicolored confetti which set the mood for the dinner. We were then blown away by a champagne toast. The service was beyond attentive, knowledgeable and accommodating, referring frequently to the guest of honor by name. The cuisine was the best I've had in years. We can't wait to celebrate another special event at CG!More

An experience all together! My family and I went to Capital Grille for a birthday celebration. We don't get fancy often, so we were very pleased with how wonderful our entire night here was. Our waiter was attentive, helpful, and kind. Due to running around...town touring Boston, we didn't have time to change into fancier clothing. They were fine with this and didn't mention it at all even though we knew they'd prefer business casual or nicer outfits. I got the filet mignon which was melt-in-your-mouth delicious paired with the sautéed spinach and mashed potatoes for the table. We got a bottle of Australian red wine. Finished the evening off with birthday dessert (complimentary from the restaurant) and coffees/lattes. The espresso was SO good and the stir they provide you with is a very fun surprise. You'll have to wait and see what it is!More
