Capital Grille is an excellent place for an expensive dinner. The food is terrific: My bone-in-filet was superb, and so too were the clam chowder and the side dishes. Drinks were strong, and service was very good.

The first sign of life after a 2 days lock in a terrible Sheraton hotel. Excellent fried calamari to share and a very good porterhouse. Excellent service even if I will never understand why Americans waiters “act” with an amazing fake smile

Drawing from its New England roots, The Capital Grille’s relaxed elegance and style have become a trademark of the Boston area.
