What can I say that you won't already know. The food is amazing, service is impeccable and the wine list is second to none. I love the wine list on the iPad with descriptions and suggested pairings. I could read that all night.

No, I have not dined here; these comments relate specifically to the restaurant's service and are based on interactions with multiple staff over the phone as I made a special request. You can tell everything you need to know about any sort place by the level of service. Even the finest in dining establishments sometimes miss the mark with their... More

We have dined at Capital Grille many times, most specifically in Burlington MA. We dined in Boston last night as we were staying in town. My husband made a reservation for 4 people and let them know that we were celebrating 3 birthdays. We have done celebrations there before and the table is decorated and a card signed by the... More

You can never go wrong with the capital grill. Took my boyfriend here for his birthday. The service is always the best, they decorated the table, put a birthday card on it and provided free dessert. The food was amazing, from appetizers to the main course to dessert. The atmosphere is superb. If you want to splurge on a meal... More

I have eaten at the Capital grill bar many times. It's crowded and noisy but offers average food and lively atmosphere. Our server Elaine greeted us with a warm smile and made us feel like we were her only customers. The small bowl of onion soup was lukewarm and the soup had spilled into the saucer. The brussel sprout salad... More

If you love a great steak, this is the restaurant for you. Capital Grille serves the best filet I've ever had. We were a group of 10 and while the tables are a tad too close to each other, you'll never be disappointed in your meal. We had the seafood tower as one appetizer and everyone loved it. We all...

After reading the reviews on here we decided on trying out this restaurant. The quality of the food is fantastic, oysters to start followed by an 16oz steak which was cooked to perfection. Ambiance was good but lighting a bit dim. My only concern was that a meal for 2 came in at over $200. Which is a shame because... More

My colleague loves this restaurant. We were on a business trip and wanted steak. I loved the steak, I found the food was excellent. Our server saw we were not drinking , so we got second hand treatment , didn't even recite the specials to us. So I felt he was doing us a favor even though we spent over... More

Excellent food and first class service personnel. Creative treatment of the typical high end steakhouse regulars plus some interesting dishes. Deserves the 1st class reputation it has.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
