Great dining experience.!!! The staff went out if their way to make our anniversary dinner special. Our dinner was fabulous.. steaks cooked to perfection. One small glitch, but I think this was with the Open table app. Our reservation made with open table was at 8:00 but when we arrived they had us in for 9:15. I got a reminder on my phone about my 8:00 reservation... but when I checked the app, it had changed to 9:15. The staff at the Capital Grille graciously sat us early.

We had dinner just my son and I for a visit to Boston--it was superb. The waiter was fantastic, the food awesome and you could hear yourself think-we were in a back room that was like a private dining room. The porcini rubbed rib eye was to die for, wines by the glass superb and the truffle fries weren't bad either! Crime brûlée was the icing on the cake. Staff could not have been nicer. This is now a tradition for my son and I.

We sat at a very nice table in the bar. Service was very good along with the service.\nif I had to find one little fault, the bartender needs to learn how to make a cold martini. I have had them always in the past at many Capital Grills and they are served perfect. Unfortunately we were both disappointed.\nBesides that, it was a very enjoyable dining experience at this location for the first time.

It all comes down to service. Ours was great. On another occasion years back at the NYC CG we had a very indifferent and condescending server so I really appreciated the high level of attention we had. Our dinners, filet and chicken were great. Brussel sprout- delicious. Creme brûlée we shared was perfect. Would have liked a better selection of seafood but I guess that's not their focus. On par with Hyde Park.

Excellent steak and wine but the service was hectic, not co-ordinated, example I was finishing my salad, I was asked if I wanted the steak now, said NO and the steak arrived anyway.\nIt was one of many things about the service that annoyed me.\nWill never go back there, instead, cross the street and go to Abe and Louis...

We dined here last Thanksgiving Day, 2016. Everything was great. It was very busy, and the noise level was loud, but what you would expect for a holiday like Thanksgiving (usually isn't bad on regular days). Service was great, table was right next to the bathroom, but wasn't bad as the doors to the bathroom are down a small hallway away from the tables. We all got the Thanksgiving Dinner. For $36 it was fantastic! Only complaint was that one of us did not get cranberry sauce. Pumpkin cheesecake was small, yet filling and absolutely delicious. I also love their homemade lemonade. Very nice experience! Thank you to the great staff who provided stellar service on a family day like Thanksgiving!

Even though it's a chain, it feels like a neighborhood restaurant. A lot of the same locals are there often, because the service is excellent, they know their guests well, and they make you feel at home.

LOVED the Capital Grille! Our first time here and we were celebrating 27 years together. The staff was so welcoming. Our table had a hand signed card, rose petals and confetti. We were given a champagne toast upon sitting. The food was to die for! Everything we ordered was just perfect and delicious. We enjoyed drinks, an appetizer, steaks and sides. A special dessert was presented on the house as well. With all this said, we cannot speak highly enough of Tarik. He was amazing. He really spent time with us, making suggestions from the menu and wine list, all top notch. Tarik just made our night that much more fun. Our only regret was our hotel refrigerator was too small for our leftovers. Definitely will come back the next time we're in town.

It was a special occasion honoring a friend's 60th birthday. Being such a milestone I wanted the atmosphere to be just right. When I was taken to our table awaiting my guests, I was surprised to see that they had sprinkled the table with celebration confetti, as well as a card with everyone's signature from the restaurant included. Just that added special touch can mean so much. Our server's name was Blair Smith and his service and attention to detail was on point. The wine I was interested in was not available but Blair recommended another wine, which we all fell in love with, requiring us to ask for a second bottle. After dinner Blair took a picture for me so we could keep as a wonderful memory of the luncheon.

My boyfriend and I went to celebrate his birthday earlier this week and I was able to leave a note when I made the reservations online that stated it was for his birthday. When we arrived, we were seated in a cozy corner and there was confetti and a cute happy birthday card waiting for us. \n\nOur server, Stacy, was amazing. She suggested a great wine for us, Which was both delicious and refreshing. We started with a crock of French Onion soup and the prosciutto-wrapped mozzarella with tomato salad and crostini – my boyfriend loves anything with prosciutto and tomatoes, as well as French Onion soup and both did not disappoint. \n\nFor Dinner I got the filet with the porcini mushroom rub that Stacy suggested and she was not kidding about how delicious the rub was and how well it paired with the wine. My boyfriend ordered the Kona Crusted Bone in Filet… he smiled the whole time while he ate it. \n\nAs a lovely surprises at the end of our meal, Stacey brought us a complimentary dessert! Even though we were both stuffed we enjoyed every bite of it. \n\nStacey made our experience wonderful and when we return we will be requesting to have her again. \n\nThe Capital Grill in Boston is definitely worth every penny.

Of the top places in town the Capital Grille serves up the best overall dining experience. Our early dinner on NYE was excellent. Excellent, professional service from Adnan, a nice dining atmosphere (before the NYE crowd), and fine chow and libation made for an enjoyable evening. It's not perfect, there's room for improvement... and you pay dearly. Like all the top steak spots, always seems a bit too high when the tab comes.

I recently met a friend of mine for lunch at the Boston location. I've been to several Capital Grilles before, and I knew that I was going to have a delicious lunch. Sadly, I was disappointed. Although the the ambiance & staff were on point, some of our food choices were lacking. I'll start first by saying the cocktails we ordered were delicious with generous pours. The clam chowder was excellent, nice big (well cleaned) chunks of clams and served piping hot. My lunch companion's sliders were great and the fries nice and crisp. However, my main course was lackluster. I ordered the special, a sirloin steak, ordered medium rare, with a Ceasar salad. My steak came out at a tough medium well, accompanied by an overly chopped Ceasar salad, absolutely drowning in dressing. Although the steak seasoning came highly touted with spices and chocolate nibs, I couldn't taste any of that and even basic salt & pepper were sorely lacking. The greens were wilted and if you hadn't told me it was a Cesar salad, I wouldn't have known. The steak was dry and looked like it had been sliced before resting and then left to warm on a plate, with a salad tossed right on the hot plate. I did not send the meal back because I didn't want to delay my friend from enjoying their meal, but I was very disappointed. My food looked like something from an Applebee's , rather than the likes of the Capital Grille.

My wife and I arrived at 7:20 PM for a 7:30 PM reservation for a long planned romantic holiday dinner. We were immediately taken to a table located right next to the bussing area with the clatter of plates and rushing waiters surrounding us; not conducive to having an enjoyable evening in a high-end restaurant. Before sitting down, I requested that our table be changed and was asked to wait a moment by the hostess. We were then taken to a small room away from the main dining area which had 3 large tables (and a few smaller tables) set up for large family dinners one of which was a large adult/child birthday party for a 12 year old involving the delivery of the lighted candle birthday cake and the singing of happy birthday. We were close enough to blow out the candles with a little effort.\n\nI do not blame those seated in the room at all as the children were extremely well mannered and the families were appropriately enjoying an evening of celebration as we have done many times with our children and grandchildren. The problem was the restaurant's 'tone deaf' initial response to our request to change tables due to the noise and activity level around the first table we were taken to.\n\nAfter experiencing the general ambiance in the room for a few minutes, I returned to the restaurant greeting area and asked again to be seated at a more appropriate table. The third time was a charm as another hostess checked where we had been seated and quickly and graciously moved us to an appropriate table in the main dining area.\n\nFrom that point on, the experience was what I would expect from a pricy restaurant like the Capital Grill. The service was outstanding, the steak incredible and the available wines perfect.\n\nWill we return to one of the Capital Grills again? Absolutely! Will I save my wife/our guests the exercise of moving throughout the restaurant looking for a table appropriate to the occasion by checking our assigned table first? No doubt.

Another perfect evening at the Capital Grill. We were in Boston for our anniversary and we made the reservation with that note, and requesting a private table. When we arrived , we are seated in a cozy corner and there was confetti and a cute anniversary card waiting for us. \n\nOur server, Joe, brought us a complimentary glass of bubbly, which was a very nice tough. We started with cocktails, mine was called Elder Brother, with St Germain and sparkling wine, delicious and refreshing. Hubby had a Gimlet that was quite strong. Appetizer was the proscuitto-wrapped mozerella with a lovely tomato salad and crostini - great every time.\n\nDinner was the sliced filet with onions and mushrooms for me, perfect medium rare. Hubby had the bone-in filet special, he said it might be the best steak he has tasted. Side were asparagus and fabulous parmesan truffle fries. We both had a glass of red wine with dinner.\n\nAs a lovely surprise, Joe brought us a complimentary dessert - and I like that he just brought it and didn't play the game of asking if we wanted to order dessert - classy.\n\nJoe was wonderful, paced the meal perfectly.\n\nYou just can't go wrong at the Capital Grill in Boston - pricey, yes - but worth every penny.

Expecting another great dinner at this restaurant, I was not disappointed. The food was indeed delicious. A very creative salad with duck prosciutto turned out a real treat for the pallet to start off with. The tender meet (white turkey and steak) had genuine flavor and was cooked right to the desired point. The truffled fries can only be recommended. The extensive wine list calls for some hard choices, while we went with a nice Malbec from Argentina. The desert menu offered a delicate cheese cake, which melts in your mouth, and the mixed, fully ripe berries were matched perfectly with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It is so refreshing to see a prime restaurant in town not to go crazy with exorbitant composites of ingredients and spices that virtually kill the food and your taste - at an impressive charge. Though the place was very busy on Thanksgiving evening, they were adequately staffed, and the waiters came across very welcoming and courteous. Melissa, our waitress, deserves particular recognition; she made us feel almost like home.

The best lobster bisque that I have ever had and a superb fillet steak with truffle and parmesan fries, heaven! The service and surroundings of Capital Grille reflect the food, elegant and of the highest quality. We were initially seated in a smaller room but were moved to the main dining hall immediately on request. The bar is very busy and bar seats few and far between on a Saturday night and we were told by a waitress that to get a table seat for a drink, you had to put your name on a list, odd and inconvenient if you just want a quick drink before dining. This was the only small negative that I can think of. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant, not cheap but certainly worth the quality of the food.

We were disappointed with Captial Grille. First of all, the prices were quite high for most dinners etc. I ordered a 10 oz. steak ($37.00) and it came with no sides. Sides for most meals was extra - $ 11.00. Two people ordered chicken (it came with vegetables)and it was very dry and the sauce that came with it did not help. The fish dish was fine and both steaks were done well. The salads that were ordered were generous in size.\nThe ambiance was very nice and the Grille was extremely popular and the restaurant was full and there were many people waiting. It is very handy to the Hynes Convention Centre and the Boston Sheraton hotel. Be expected to pay upwards of $ 30.00 for a main dish in this area.

The steaks are hard to beat and the portions are definitely large. Our server was friendly and helpful. I always have a hard time understanding why the water person feels compelled to reach in front of me to pour the water while I'm in the middle of a conversation, as opposed to taking the glass from the table and filling it on the side, but maybe that's just me.

I have been to the capital grille several times and have always had a great experience, which was not the case this time. The food was very good, as usual, however the service was lacking big time. We were greeted by the waiter quickly and got our first round of drinks quickly. Once we finished our drinks it took some time for the waiter to return to ask if we wanted another round. Dinner came out fairly quickly and that was the last time we saw the waiter for a long time. He checked once but never paid much attention to us after that point. Drinks were empty and water glasses were not refilled either. Once we finished and the waiter took our dishes it took at least 10-15 minutes for the waiter to come back and ask about dessert. We ordered dessert which came quickly but once we were done it took another 15-20 minutes for him to check on us. It took another 10 minutes to get the check after our dessert plates were removed. When it was all said and done we were there for 3 hours which is way too long for a table of 4, 2 of which were teenagers. We weren't ordering bottles of wine one after the other to keep the evening going. I have always had great service at this location but this time I was not impressed, especially when the meal +tip was about $480.

Service was inattentive from the start! We arrived in a timely fashion for our reservations, but we're made to wait 10 minutes, while other parties entered and were seated promptly. We were then seated at a table that was on the corner of the main walkway and where staff placed & picked up orders, near the open grill (we enjoy open grills, but this was loud and disruptive) and restrooms. We enjoyed our martinis, table side pour from shaker was classy. Our waiter was unable to clearly explain the'Generous Pour Campaign' and our other inquiries regarding wines. Our waiter served our entrees and then never returned to check to see if everything was cooked correctly. It was difficult to get his attention so we asked another waiter to send him over. Upon his return to the table, he seemed surprised that we had poured our own wine (the bottle was empty), despite the fact that we had no longer been eating for some time. Unfortunately a patron became ill in the hallway into restroom. The chef loudly stalked back and forth, yelling at staff and brought a large white bucket for the patron who was seated in plain view of the dining room while waiting for care. Bucket, mops & cleaning supplies were wheeled by and then the aroma of bleach became so overwhelming, we were unable to finish our entrees. Disagreements among the staff continued to be evident. I inquired of the hostess about an alternative restroom and was told that there was one in the convention center but that security would turn me away. Our family had a restaurant and we understand that incidents happen, but this was poorly managed and spoiled what turned into a 4 hour dinning experience. The waiter never addressed any of the commotion (including EMTs and police presence). While the food was decent, it was hard to enjoy and therefore we wouldn't feel comfortable recommending this restaurant based on the lack of concern for the customer experienced demonstrated by the hostess, waiter and chef.

I'm in a little bit of a quandary with regards to my review of The Capital Grille. It was a dinner experience of highs and lows. While on one hand the service was on par with what you would expect for a restaurant in this price range, they seated us at a table directly next to the kitchen & prep area so noise was definitely an issue. At times I couldn't even hear what my fiancé was saying when she spoke. Our main courses were absolutely delicious (10oz Filet Mignon & the Pan Seared Scallops), but the sides were below average at best. We felt the Lobster Mac & Cheese was pretty overrated (for the price) and the Potatoes Au Gratin were maybe the worst example of real potatoes actually tasting like boxed potato flakes ever. The drinks were really good, especially the In Fashion...I'd highly recommend that to any bourbon drinker or traditional Old Fashioned fan without reservation. All in all it was an okay experience, but for the price I think there are better options.

We always enjoy The Capital Grille (the wines, salads, steaks, and sides are consistently great), but there is one peculiar thing about the experience that bothers us every time. When a diner orders a steak medium rare, the server is programmed to recite 'warm red center.' When ordering a steak medium, they recite 'cool pink center.' This robotic ritual is insulting and suggests that we are amateurs who have never eaten in a steak house before. We would love to have the servers use some discretion and eliminate this from their routine. Otherwise, our meal was great!

And when the rib-eye arrived, it was actually still a little pink in the center, and our guest loved it, devouring every last morsel of the 22oz bone-in ribeye. I had the porcini-rubbed bone-in ribeye with 15-year aged balsamic, cooked medium-rare. What a perfect marriage of flavors... every bite was a delight. I still think of it now, a few days later. We also had a salad, calamari with hot cherry peppers, sides of spinach and roasted wild mushrooms, and warm double chocolate cake. Firstly, our server was very accommodating, making the calamari more sauteed instead of deep fried, and also switching the creamed spinach to an olive oil sautee. The spinach did turn out too oily for my liking, but was fresh and not too salty. The mushrooms were as expected - you can't really go wrong here. The calamari were fresh, delicious and had a great kick. And the dessert was very good. The wine suggestion was spot-on (I had a Malbec), and the breads were all tasty and of good variety. All in all, it was the quality expected of the price, with great service, so we will be taking more guests here.

I hold The Capital Grille at the top of my list- always. However, this last visit I was disappointed in the place. Firstly I was to say that the service was very good. Our server was informative and attentive. My disappointment was in the food. The lobster bisque was mediocre at best. It was pasty and seemed out of a can. It was served directly in a cup. I have had some of the best lobster bisque in Boston over the years and I expect perfection especially from a place like The Capital Grille. The steak was ok as well. It was done more than I had asked for and the sauce was very creamy. I normally don't order my steak with anything on it but the description sounded nice so I went for it but the richness of the sauce made it impossible for me to finish the steak. I would go back to Capital Grille but not as my first choice anymore.

I don't want to like Capital Grille, it is a chain restaurant after all. There is no question I even have sub conscious biases against it; I'll always try to avoid booking it even though I can never think of a bad experience. \n\nThe reality is it holds its own against the very best and does so reliably. It is that reliability that is so impressive and so critical when spending >$100 a head. The Boylston St Capital Grille adds a consistently high level of service to the whole equation. 10/10.

Two great meals for lunch. My salmon was undercooked for my taste, so ate around the edges. Even though my waiter asked how everything was immediately, I did not send it back because my schedule was tight and I didn't want my guest to wait for my food to be cooked longer. That was my choice. However, the waiter noticed as he cleared that I had not eaten much, decided that the salmon looked undercooked, apologized profusely, and did not charge for that meal. Given that I had not even complained, I thought this was 'above and beyond the call,' and it made me want to go back there again. Wonderful service.

My business colleague and I went for dinner on a Wednesday evening. The dining room was fairly full. We were seated pretty quickly. The waiter was quick to take the drink order and then disappeared. There seemed to be a shortage of staff which was bazaar for $100 per person meal. When the waiter did take our order I ordered the ' PORCINI RUBBED BONE-IN RIBEYE WITH 15-YEAR AGED BALSAMIC Our signature steak, prepared with delicate porcini mushroom crust' Medium Rare+ which is between Rare and Medium. My colleague ordered the LOBSTER, SHRIMP AND MUSSELS BOUILLABAISSE WITH TOMATO SAFFRON BROTH. After a very long wait, they were served. My steak was cold rare, did not have a 'porcini mushroom crust', was extraordinarily under seasoned and under spiced, and worst of all had huge chucks and strips of thick fat. I know the ribeye has fat, but I also know that ribs 6 to 9 which comes from closer to the cow's shoulder (aka the chuck) are referred variously as the 'chuck end,' 'blade end,' or 'second cut.' It's got more separate musculature, and more large hunks of fat. For $53 it is an embarrassment to serve those ribs without trimming fat. What should be served are Ribs 10 through 12, taken from further back and known as the 'loin end,' 'small end,' or 'first cut.' It's got a larger central eye of meat, and less fat. I have had better much better steaks at $20 per person restaurants.

Happy to report the food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Unfortunately, it's been my experience that service here in New England often leaves a lot to be desired, so it's such a pleasure to come across a server who covers off on all the fine details. As for the food--we started with the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella as an appetizer and it was delicious. For the main course, everyone in our party ordered steak (obviously) and we all agreed they were prepared exactly to specifications. Our sides (au gratin potatoes, lobster mac and cheese and asparagus) were all very good as well, though the potatoes were a little too greasy/buttery for my taste.

It was cooked perfectly, seasoned appropriately, and the Generous Pour selections were great enhancements to the flavor of the steak. The service was outstanding. I would love to see the bone-in, Kona crusted, NY Strip part of the regular menu.

I was pleased that the Restaurant Week menu had the items I planned to order. However, the wedge salad bore only a slight resemblance to the real thing. The lettuce could be hardly called a wedge and was served at room temperature. I think it had two bacon bits. The sirloin was much smaller than advertised and not nearly as tasty as I recall. Still, we had a pleasant evening.

My fiance and I love the Capital Grille. Everything from the drinks, the food, and the desserts are amazing. If you go, I recommend the filet with gorgonzola and red wine reduction.

My only complaints......a drink was late and when it came my friend had changed her mind and the waiter offered it complimentary. My husband ordered dessert and then the check came. We commented that is was odd to receive a check prior to receiving dessert...looked at the bill dessert wasn't listed so we opted to skip it.\n\nA few missteps by the waiter but otherwise a very enjoyable night and dinner.

For every special occasion in my life I always like to celebrate at Capital Grille however the last few times the food wasn't that good. I always order the exact same dish so I know what to expect.

Steak, as always, was fabulous. Must admit that we were a bit disapointed in the lobster bisque which was an appetizer special. The bisque lacked flavor and the lobster chunks were a bit dry.

As usual with Capital Grille the food quality was excellent but apart from our main server the service was disappointing. We were presented with our steaks and my son got my steak and I got his because the waiter presenting the meal was far too laid back and thought it was funny that they were all the same even though they were not. We then could not work out which were which ourselves until we started eating. His slap-dash attitude spoiled the experience. On top of this there was a very loud party next to us who continually swore even after being asked not to. This was not good while spending as much as we did in your establishment.

My expectations were met and far exceeded - from the server to the meal. The ONLY issue or complaint I have was the cold borderline rude greeting from the four people all huddled around the host stand. No one smiled, of the four people standing there, one woman (perhaps a manager) rudely inquired as to why I would possibly stand at a host stand. Never a smile, until a younger female showed me and my guest to our table, and while she smiled at one point she appeared lost as if she forgot what table we were headed to.\n\nHonestly I was furious and in a terrible mood from the first interaction with the hosting gang however the server turned all that around and rather quickly!! He was funny, charming, well educated on the menu (both food and wine) and his interactions were pleasant and enjoyable.\n\nThe French Onion soup while it was cheesy and delicious it was just warm but again the flavors helped makeup for it - then again the two of us ate the entire thing so I guess it wasn't all that bad.\n\nThe crazy berry and goat cheese salad was heavenly - I had asked my companion for a bite or two as we order and the server had the salad split into two plates which was awesome.\n\nBoth of our main courses were insanely delicious - we each had the filet prepared differently but each one cooked perfectly. The creamy garlic spinach was unreal and I hate spinach and I couldn't get enough of it. The scalloped potatoes were awesome and SCOLDING hot so be ware!\n\nI will go back - I'll just avoid the speaking to the hosting staff.

We chose the Capital Grille in Boston for Restaurant Week because of their outstanding reputation and the enticing menu selections that were offered.\n\nTarik, our waiter, was engaging and very professional. We enjoyed conversing with Tarik about France and the excellent southern France wine options that were availabl, since we favor these wines over other regions.\n\nWe chose caesar salad to start. The size was good and composition was very nice. The salad was lightly dressed and delicious.\n\nFor our entrees, my wife ordered the 8 ounce filet mignon and I ordered the 18 ounce kona crusted sirloin. They were accompanied with mashed potatoes and green beans. The steaks were perfectly cooked (medium) for us and the vegetables were excellent.\n\nMy wifes filet was a little small, but she said it was a very good size for her. On the other hand, my steak was very large and had very little bone, so I was very, very happy. The kona crust was comprised of decaf kona coffee, cinnamon, and a few other spices. It was excellent.\n\nFor desert, we both ordered the cremé brulee which was also outstanding.\n\nOur service was not rushed and we enjoyed our approximately 1.5 hour dinner.\n\nThe ambiance was very nice as we were seated in a smaller area with only 10-12 tables. We are only giving four stars for this because we found it to be a little dark for us.\n\nWhether Restaurant Week or not, we highly recommend the Capital Grille for a memorable dinner.

A few of my friends have been to The Capital Grille (Chestnut Hill location) and have raved about it but my experience wasn't anything to rave about. I promise you I would've given 5 stars if my server Kristen wasn't so rude. \n\nI work as a server so I know days could be rough but at the end of the day you leave all the bs behind and focus on serving your guests. I could tell she hated her job; she didn't smile nor was she attentive. I got a drink that I wasn't too fond of and asked for something else in return and was given an eye roll and an attitude. I normally hate to be that person that complains about stuff but my experience would have been a lot better if my server was. \n\nBesides that the food was amazing. I got the filet mignon with the jumbo shrimp and a side order of macaroni and cheese. My filet was perfectly seasoned and cooked and the mac couldn't have been any better. For dessert I got the creme brûlée which I've never had before and it was very tasty. \n\nOverall not super bad. Maybe I'll give it another shot in the future :) \n\nxoxo

For every big occasion ( birthdays, valentine day, promotion, etc...), my wife and I would go to Capital Grill. I have been living in Boston for over 20 yeas and had the chance to try many of the best restaurants in and around Boston. I am sad to say that we were very disappointed during our last dinner at Capital Grill in Boston. Service was up to the level and wine was good. I invited my wife for Valentine'sand I was hoping it would all be perfect and romantic. The previous time, was in mid- January for my birthday and we both felt something changed and did not want to make a big deal of it. \nOn Saturday, February 13th, 2016, the atmosphere felt industrial where you had several rows of small tables seating 2 each, in parallel as if it was a production line. We did not appreciate that. \nThe worst part of it all is their Porterhouse lost all of what made it the best in the world ( the smell, the size and the taste). I always order it as a main course.\nI very rarely write reviews, but for this, I thought it was important to share this, perhaps it could help push the Capital Grill team to get back to greatness.

My husband and I went to Capital Grille Back Bay. We started at the bar for drinks. I had a French martini which was very good. My husband had a rum and Coke which he says was 'very rummy.' At dinner we both had the lobster bisque. It was delicious with huge chunks of lobster throughout. He had the porterhouse and I had the kona crusted New York strip. Both were perfectly cooked and delicious. Truly among the best steak we've ever had. I thought better than Ruth's Chris. My husband thought they were equally good. The lobster Mac and cheese was amazing. The Brussels sprouts were good but not amazing. We finished with creme brûlée. Excellent. Service was impeccable. Overall an amazing night. Definitely worth the money.

While the large dining room is electric with noise and hustle and bustle, the side rooms are very quiet and sedate. I would go so far as to say boring. We were very disappointed that after having been paraded through the large dining room, we were placed in a small quiet room in the back. \n\nThe food and service was great, but the night was not the interesting or exciting night we had expected to celebrate my husbands birthday.

We decided to go to a steak restaurant for my birthday, as we don't have steak at home. The restaurant has a well-heeled, clubby vibe with an open kitchen at the rear. We were asked if we would prefer black napkins over the white on the table, as we were wearing black pants. Nice touch.\nThe menu is varied, and our waiter, Blair, was great at helping us zero in on a bottle of Malbec and in going over the various steaks. We selected salads and dry-aged NY strip steaks and split sides of mashed potatoes and roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon. Service was excellent and unobtrusive. The steak was more than ample; so we both got half to take home. As we had shared it was my birthday, I was presented with a dessert on a 'Happy Birthday' plate, Start to finish, everything was delicious.\nUnless you are on a great expense account or are well-paid, this is not a place one can afford every week, but it made an excellent celebratory treat.

We were celebrating a couple of Birthdays and John took it upon himself to bring a final 'desert' ensemble to conclude our evening on a high note.

I frequent the Capital Grill in many US cities. Being from Massachusetts I had to try the new location at the Hynes Convention Center (next to the Pru) the next time I was in Boston. I haven't been to the Grill in my home state since they were located on Newbury Street. The new Hynes locations has the new 'look' that is the same wherever you go in the U.S. Everything was Great, as usual, EXCEPT service was very slow at this location and I have never had that problem. Perhaps they need to hire more staff. Next time I am in Boston I will go back to Abe and Louie's. They always have an entire entourage swarming about.

We went on Saturday to celebrate a birthday. The steaks, the sides and the dessert were all wonderful. Adnan, our waiter, was helpful and attentive throughout our dinner. The only downside to the whole experience was I made the reservation about a month ahead and requested a booth for a number of reasons. I also made the reservations early (5:30 pm) so we could sit where we wanted. When the girl called to confirm my reservation the day before, she left me a bit apprehensive as she said, when i reiterated my request for a booth, well we'll see what we can do . . . if there is one available. Really? 5:30 on a Saturday? When i made reservations a month ahead? What is the point of a reservation? I don't think there was anyone else even seated in the dining room when we arrived.

I booked a dinner for two at Capital Grille on August 7, 2015 way in advance, hoping to have an unforgettable experience and something to remember for years to come. Capital Grille is a nice place so we both were looking forward to having this dinner. \nWe were sited in the middle, right next to the door into a private room, and so people were walking back and forth past us all the time. When I asked if we could get another table, our host said we couldn't, despite having other tables available. I made an attempt to try a Chardonnay, since I planned on ordering seafood dish. All I found was bottles and one or two half bottles. What happened to wine by the glass is a mystery to me. Are all Capital Grille visitors drink like sailors? I think not. We then settled with wine tasting menu that had been going until the end of the summer. The Chardonnay that got advertised very highly and we were told went for $90 a bottle was nothing to write home about. I had better and often. I can't say for my friend, but my scallops were overcooked, dry and reminded me of a chewing gum, rather than a delicate seafood. The sweet corn risotto that came with it tasted better. But you don't order a $40-$50 dish for a corn risotto. Unless I am far from reality, the experience was rather forgettable.

Went there for a momentous occasion, my daughters 16th birthday. We had dined at Capital Grilles all over the country, so we were expecting the usual fine dining experience. Server was great, food excellent as usual. Shortly after we were seated however, in fairly close quarters in the main dining room, 4 people were seated next to us. The boys had on rumpled sweat pants, hoodies and baseball caps. The 'gentleman' sitting right next to us pants were so low that they were actually at mid-thigh so that his glaring white underwear were gleaming right at us. I excused myself from the table and went to see a manager. I informed him of what we were looking at, but I did not want to disrupt my daughters diner and embarrass her further, so I did not asked to be re-seated. However, I communicated my astonishment that this property had no standards on dress. He said he would walk back with me and view what I was talking about, which he did. Hopefully he addressed his staff afterwards about conforming to their dress code..........if they have one.\n\nAt no time was an apology offered, no attempt to get my name and contact information. I could have went to a Lonestar or Outback, or a bar if I wanted to see someone's underwear. I guess. (at $300.00 less money for the meal probably), but we wanted 'fine' dining. This restaurant may choose to have no dress code, I get it. I also get that I can also choose anywhere else to go as well.\n\nVery disappointing. We will never go back.

Came here for my boyfriend's birthday. Had some of the best steak I've ever had. The server was fantastic, knew the wine selections backward and forward and his suggestions were absolutely wonderful. Pretty much saved my boyfriend's life after we ordered something that had come in contact with shellfish (my boyfriend is very allergic to it). They're really on top of everything there. I'd go back more often if it wasn't so expensive.

Capital always delivers on steak. Perfectly done, just as you ask.

I went to Capital Grille to have dinner with some friends on Friday March 13th. I am allergic to onions and I let our waiter know about this a couple of times. I ordered my food and when I was in the middle of my appetizer, he came and removed my plate because the dressing had onions inside. He changed the plate for another without dressing. After this, I had to remind him about my allergy another time with the side of my main course. He served a green beans with onions. He had to change again the dish. And then, he made a joke in the desserts about my allergy (for me is nothing to joking about, even worse after his mistakes during the dinner). I was disappointed. I think Capital Grille was an outstanding restaurant and I didn't expect these kind of mistakes and this attitude from our waiter. Also, he had not any attention with me or my party for the mistakes he made. I had this situations in other places and always they offer me a kind of compensation for this unfortunately incidents. I really think, Capital Grille should take more seriously the food allergies.

We have heard so much about capital grille steaks, that we had to try them. We can even hear the table next to us raving about the kona steak. Unfortunately the kona bone in 14oz steak really disappointed (I added the kona rub to the 14oz bone in sirloin). I ordered it medium and it was pretty much well done. There was no melt in my mouth or tenderness to the steak. My partner ordered the filet mignon medium rare, but came out more on the medium side. We probably should've sent it back, but our waiter Francis was just so excellent, we didn't bother.\n\nI have to say though, the Pinot noir we had was delicious. \n\nTo sum it up, it's just too bad that at a top notch steakhouse, we really expected much better for the food. But to reiterate, the service was excellent. Francis, because of you, we are willing to give capital grille a second chance at some point. Thanks for making the experience (even though the food should have)!

Made a reservation a couple weeks in advance, my daughter picked the Restraunt as we were out to celebrate her 18th birthday. Let me start this by saying I have eaten at Capitol Grilles all over the country and on average dine 12-20 times a year at a Capitol. I made a point to state in my OpenTable reservation that we were there to celebrate her 18th birthday. Got a call from Capitol the day before to confirm and she confirmed the birthday as well. \nWe arrived a little early but they seated us promptly after a short wait, at the table there were sprinkled decorations and a card happy birthday and sign by staff, we sat for a bit ordered drinks. After a little longer wait than usual we ordered our food, food delivery was prompt and all food was as ordered & as usual delicious. \nDuring our meal the couple at the table to our left was brought a nice desert to celebrate their anniversary, then the table on our right was served a different desert this on lit with a candle to celebrate a guests birthday. We have celebrated both bithdays and anniversaries at Capitol in the past so we know this is standard fare to help celebration.\nAfter our meals were cleared we were offered desert menus and we ordered coffee while we looked over the menu. I expected her birthday desert to come with coffee as it usually has. Unfortunaly it never came. We decided not to order any desert , got our bill and left. Although she said it wasn't a big deal, I know it bothered her not to be even acknowledged from the waiter about the birthday. At one point during our meal I left an empty beer bottle and our empty water bottle on the edge if the table and I would guess our waiter walked by at least 6 time without asking if we wanted more water for the table or another drink until I flagged him down on one of his passes by. As stated this is not a bad review of the food, not typical of the 'normal' service. But it's an 18th birthday that was less than memorable for my daughter. \nDISAPPOINTiNG

Food was good, staff was attentive and outstanding. The only complaint I have is that it was restaurant week and we were rushed even though I specifically said we were not in a rush. I work in Boston, but don't get a chance to try Boston restaurants because of my commute. This was my chance to try the Capital Grille in Boston with my girlfriend, and it was not a very pleasant experience. Eating 3 courses and cocktails in less than an hour does not make for an relaxing dining experience. I definitely, would not bring my husband there for a romatic meal---Our evening meal was like an assembly line---get you in and get you out as soon as possible.

We all know the Capital Grill does not have to participate in 'Dine-Out Boston' or any other special promotion as the restaurant is packed EVERY NIGHT. However, although we have eaten there several times in the past year, it was such a treat to have another experience. I see the restaurants participation as an open invitation to the public that 'we want your business and thank you for choosing us.' The food was top notch, as always. We were attending a Wednesday show at Symphony Hall and shopped on open table for a dine-out restaurant for a meal before the event.

Came here for restaurant week to celebrate a birthday. First, I went with a reduced expectation for the special restaurant week menu. Second, I was apprehensive of the perceived value of the experience because it's a chain steakhouse. We've dine at plenty of other pricey steakhouses and had food that was not worth the exorbitant prices. I thought restaurant week prices might be a good balance to overcome my fear. :) I was pleasantly blown away with the food quality (fit for a foodie!), the ambiance, the service (our server was down to earth, funny, and not stuffy at all), the value, and the overall experience. I would definitely book here again for a special occasion (even not on restaurant week:)).

this was my first time at the capital grille and probably my last. I went because it was dine out boston week so there was a deal, other wise the place is out of my price range by miles. The host was great, he greeted us as soon as we walked in the door. Our table was fine, we got bread and water right away. There was just something lacking from the service. Our server didn't seem to care if we were ready to order, needed something or were done for the evening. Maybe that's just how the place is run, not to rush people, but I almost felt ignored at times. Plus I could tell our dinners were the last out of the kitchen for the night and they didn't seem to take as much care. The chicken was fine but my steak was over cooked and more crispy on the outside than expected. I really just felt ignored by the waiter and that was annoying. I don't see us returning to the capital grille anytime soon, especially with the service and the cost.

Dined with my daughter and husband. We made reservations, and we were early but they accommodated us. Very friendly. Wine list on iPad which is an interesting idea but by the time you figured how to navigate including having to listen to the server explain, I thought a pain. Prolonged cocktail order. Prefer a paper wine list. Not everything has to be online. Had a terrific cocktail with florida grapefruit. Loved. Steaks were delicious and my husband had chicken. We shared parm fries. Delicious as well. My daughter and I split spinach salad and my husband had Mozzarella app. An inexpensive bottle of wine. No dessert or coffee. With tip, $287. This is why I don't like steak houses. Could have made all three entrees at home for a lot less. But nice place, great service. Stacy was our server. Very nice. I wouldn't go back with my whole family. It would be a mortgage payment.

In town on business. Chose the establishment based upon open table reviews and past experience at other capital grills. What I had expected. Dark lighting, comfortable chairs, people laughing and having a good time. High energy bar scene. Excellent mixed drinks and good wine by the glass selection. Upon arrival, a few minute wait, then straight to the table. The service was expectable. Drinks arrived quickly. Although we never felt rushed. The oysters, steak tartare, and shrimp cocktail were perfect. The tartare could be a main course because of its size. All steaks were perfect. The lobster mac and cheese is a must side.

We had a wonderful time Saturday night at the Capital Grille. We sat at the bar for a drink or two before over reservation. The gentleman bartender was especially helpful, attentive and friendly. \nOur waiter , Dante, was hands down the best we have ever had as a server. He knew his wine... knew the menu and was still down to earth. The fact that he was so friendly and personable (read: 'not an over stuffy robot of a high end restaurant') made the dinner that much more enjoyable. \n\nFood was done to perfection - I have zero complaints! Thanks for a great dinner!

Eddie was professional and attentive during our 3 hour meal. The duration of our dinner was intentional - not due to slow service. As always, a superb experience.

The service and food were very good, however the restaurant is extremely loud. Wouldn't have been a problem if our party was friends and colleagues but with younger children it was a bit challenging. We'd still come back. Food is terrific

Have always enjoyed their restaurants, whether 'Mecca' in D.C. or elsewhere, a consistently great meal and service you don't find many places!

Great food, wine, and atmosphere. The service was excellent too. Our server, Brian, was very professional and attentive. This is the perfect place for a really nice date or any special occasion.

Have been going to the Capital Grille for many years, and this visit was disappointing. Ironically, the only really good meal in a steak restaurant was the salmon. My sirloin steak was chewy and didn't have much flavor, while the other steak with soy and spices was over seasoned. My mozarella salad for $15.00 had a poor quality cheese and tough basil that would have been more appropriately served as a chiffonade. The large tomato was thick and bland and also included part of the end with the stem section. Seems as tho the bread basket has been pared down also. Not a place we would rush back to visit. Abe and Louis, in my opinion, has much better quality of beef as well as vegetables.

You'll find Capital Grille Restaurant's in most major cities but this fine steakhouse restaurant chain is unique in that each individual restaurant has its own identity and distinct characteristics. Capital Grille Boston is located in a vibrant section of the City - the place was bustling but that did not effect the staff - the hosts were kind and accommodating, the wait staff attentive and the overall service wonderful. Capital Grille Boston does not serve a bad meal - no matter what you order. Their steaks, fish and lobster are all terrific. It's a fun restaurant to bring a large crowd. Five stars for Capital Grille Boston.

Went there on Saturday night for my birthday and I could not be happier with the experience. The room was top notch, the service was ridiculously attentive, and the food was spectacular! Make sure you make reservations well enough in advance as it is a popular spot. Enjoy!

Set out for an evening on the town...no special occasion. Our dinner at the Capital Grille turned out to be very special! From the warm greeting at the door, to the friendly coat check, to the delicious meal to the GM checking in...fabulous service. Our waiter, Zak Nolen was one of the best I've ever had! Suggestions were great, timing impeccable, and appropriately friendly! Very fun date!\nThanks Capital Grille!\nKaren

We, I and my wife, visited Capital Grille based on the review from many sources including OpenTable, TripAdvisor, and Yelp. We also experienced what the other guys who gave high ratings did. The steak was great and the service was very good.

Dinner was great for the most part. I was disappointed that my steak was not properly prepared. I ordered medium and it came out medium rare, and had to be sent back. So I sat there and watched my friend eat a hot steak while I waited and looked a plate of asparagus. I don't know why it is so difficult to get a properly cooked steak- The same thing happened the last 2 times I went to another steak house (Abe and Louie's- to which I won't be returning). I am puzzled why it is such a difficult task (especially for a steak house).

This has been my second time in 4 weeks, I went back because the service and food was top notch. My waiter Robert C was so good the 1st time that I asked specifically for him again and did not disapppoint. Also the Managerk Chris (young one) was very very nice. I highly recommend the Boston Capital Grille. Thanks again to the staff for another perfect night.\n\nLeslie

Our family of 5 Adults enjoyed a wonderful thanksgiving lunch. Two of us enjoyed the traditional turkey dinner which was nicely presented and very tasty. The others had various steak dishes, everyone raved about their meals, as we always do here. The service by Adam was attentive and professional. The atmosphere was festive yet subdued, conversation was flowing easily throughout the restaurant. A really great way to celebrate, so glad we chose to have our Thanksgiving here!

Another fabulous Birthday celebration for my husband, 8 years, every year a night at Capital Grill is all he ever asks for and this year was just as perfect as the other times. Pleasant, informative and kind server, great food, nice wine pairings and a table at which we could hear each other.
