We had a lovely evening. We adore Denise. We were so happy to get a booth in her section.

Unfortunately, I was disappointed with the food and overall experience- for the first time ever. We had a reservation, arrived on time, but waited over 20 minutes for a table. When we finally got seated, our table was in a very loud and busy corridor near the kitchen and bar area. We were celebrating our anniversary

As always the lobster bisque and lobster salads were outstanding. Sebastian was outstanding in his service.

Place was a DISASTER tonight. Went for thanksgiving and reservation was 30 minutes late to seat us. No sorry, no nothing. Meanwhile watched tables sit empty with nobody bussing them for 10 minutes. Place was a complete mess tonight. Understaffed and clearly not in control of their reservation system or anything. Disconnected management. Sucks when you pay 600 dollars for dinner for 5 people on a holiday and get a complete joke of an experience. Sad....

The food is outstanding. Lunch specials at $22 are a terrific value. Have never had an average meal here. Everything is properly prepared and tastes wonderful.

Just as important, the staff is amazing.

We will be spending this coming New Years Eve at The Capital Grille. Lunch specials at $22 are a great deal.

We were treated to tremendous service by Damon Jimenez, who made my son’s birthday and introduction to fine dining a memorable experience. We look forward to celebrating there again and to Damon’s exceptional hospitality and attentiveness.

Exceptional restaurant. Never fails to impress. Perhaps even astonish. Our waiter, Sebastian, was fantastic. He anticipated our desires enough to make suggestions for things we didn’t know we could order (medium rare plus, half order of roasted mushrooms). We will be unquestionably return for a special occasion soon.

As usual the food is delicious and cooked to perfection. The service by Sean was excellent as he was very attentive considering it was quite busy. I was disappointed with the level of noise as I had to strain to hear my friends conversation even though we were sitting across from one another. ( I’m not hard of hearing either)

I hadn’t been here for a while, but my return experience was well over my expectations.

The only con was the deafening noise level in the main dining room. This was a Tuesday night at 6:30, so I never expected this. They kindly reseated us at a booth in the back, and all was fine.

The staff seemed to think the ambience was seasonal. I sure hope so.

Went there for our 5 years anniversary, and previously for our 3rd. The time we spent as soon as we stepped in blossomed and the fragrant vibes we got from the establishment did not disappear until 30 min after leaving. The effects of the great service and dinner we had were everlasting.

Moe the server at the Chestnut Hill location was wonderful! He made sure that my friend had an amazing evening for her birthday by accommodating us to a private room (which came to our surprise cause we had requested a booth). The service was wonderful, the food was really good quality, the environment was great. No complaints. I’ve received the best service every time I’ve gone to the Chestnut Hill location with my boyfriend or with friends. Definitely a place I highly recommend overall!

I was there to experience their Wagyu & Wine event... the burger I got came out with different things wrong and had to go back twice. My friend decided to wait before eating but they just made an extra burger instead so all food was hot together. They discounted our bill because of all the trouble, which we genuinely appreciated and did not expect. Service was amazing, attentive and friendly.

Capital Grille Chestnut Hill you have outdone yourselves! We had a day planned for our 25th anniversary but due to the weather we had to cancel it. At the last minute we made a reservation here at the Capital Grille and we are so glad we did! Literally within an hour we made the reservations and were welcomed with a beautiful handwritten note wishing us a Happy Anniversary! Our table was covered with rose petals and we were greeted by our waiter with glasses of champagne! We had a lovely and delicious dinner and it was topped off with a customized dessert plate with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate!! I can’t think of a better way to start another 25 years with my husband. Thank you!!

Unfortunately not a good experience. It was a business dinner and the service was non existent. Never came to table to ask if we wanted another drink nor fill up our waters. When dessert time came our guest had to ask for menu. Also when time to pay, we had to get her attention instead of he coming to us. I am used to first class service at Capital Grille and was very surprised and disappointed.

My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary. If you let them know in advance the waitstaff make a point of wishing you a happy anniversary - a nice touch. The interior has an English country estate feel with dark wood paneling, etc. We were seated at a cozy booth for two. Our server was a little quirky but in a nice way. The complimentary bread basket was delicious as were our main courses of steak (ribeye and NY strip) and sides for sharing (potatoes au gratin and asparagus). Finally, we were treated to a decadent, complimentary creme brûlée with "Happy Anniversary" stenciled in chocolate on the plate. I was a bit surprised by the noise level but it was a busy Saturday night. We've been to Capital Grille before and know it's overpriced but the quality and service help to make up for it. Overall, a very good dining experience!
