The Capital Grille - Chestnut Hill Ratings and Reviews
If you're going to head to the Capital Grille, it's a much better experience at the one in Back Bay. Our server was over stretched on tables (which he admitted to us) the steak wasn't close to the quality and the overall ambiance is a million times better. The prices are the same so invest in the extra drive time and make it a memorable experience.
My husband is not a meat and potato type guy, so it took years to convince him to go to The Capital Grille. I finally was able to convince him by telling him I would go without him, and that they had great fish as well, so he tagged along. Well, he loved his first experience. Now we go back each year, and I can get my-oh-so-delicious rib eye, and he gets the salmon. While we love the food, we also love the service as it's attentive without being hovering. For special occasions, there is always a special touch or three- rose petals and hearts, special printed menus, a complimentary dessert, and this week, a complimentary toast of champagne as well.
I should also add that the cocktails and the wine list by the glass are excellent, and the free valet service on a pouring night was much appreciated.
This really is our special occasion place; it may not be inexpensive, but I am so happy to indulge!
Capital Grille wowed us with their friendliness. We got a (rare!) last minute reservation and decided to take our daughter for her 14th birthday. Perhaps not a standard choice, but she loves steak, so it made complete sense. The staff were extremely friendly and wished her a happy birthday when we arrived, and then staff continued to stop by and wish her a great day. It really made her feel special. As always the food was delish. Thank you!
Went for son's high school graduation. Very good food. Outstanding service and attention to customers. Incredibly noisy around a big round table. If I were taking a group of 8 again I'd specify a rectangle table not a round one. But, it was worth it all the same, a good celebration.
The food was outstanding - as always. Our server was kind, polite and attentive. Unfortunately we had to wait 35 minutes for our table despite a 7:00 reservation - we were not seated until 7:35. Our server kindly bought as a delicious appetizer to make up for that.
We had a special HS graduation celebration. Service was superb and food absolutely perfect. My only negative was the limited space between the back of my chair at a table against the wall and the table behind me. My chair was hit more than a few times by passerbys.
Been coming for 15+ years and to be honest this is the first time I have been very disappointed.
Went for a birthday and there were so many issues I'll save your eyes the pain.
2 Appetizer forgotten, 2 steaks significantly overcooked, incorrect drinks and then some.
So far from what The Capital Grille is usually like, it pains me to write this.
Everyone has an off night I guess? Sadly at my expense this time.
Love the CAP but a Little disappointed in this visit. I just had the burger off of the bar menu and instead of medium rare it showed up well done.
I Just don't think that should happen at a high-end steakhouse where the burger is $20.
To be clear, they took care of it quickly and the evening was still very pleasant.
I know I should be getting steak when dining here but I don't eat it. We started with the calamari which was as good as usual. I then got a Caesar salad that was nothing special but I didn't come with the anchovies I asked for. I got the salmon but the piece I got was so dry I was literally chocking trying to swallow it . We got the au' Gratin potatoes which tasted so much like grease, rather then cheese that I wouldn't eat them. My husband got a steak which he said was delicious. My husband got two non alcohol beers that were $12 a piece, I got two
Cocktails that were delicious at $13 each (Best Buy of the night). I have two $100 gift cards that I will be happy to give away to a steak lover then to waste my night out
What an amazing evening. We were celebrating two events and the restaurant and our waitress in particular made the event something we will always cherish. They paid special attention to every detail! We have celebrated here in the past but this evening went above and beyond. Thank you
I was sick and couldn't eat or drink anything but...my guests had fabulous meal of red meat and red wine. The birthday dessert was excellent-a nice surprise. We always appreciate the choice of napkin color. We had a server new to us and he was great. (Can't remember his name; sorry) AND we met and connected with a very old family friend! An added bonus.
I usually love Capital Grill especially on special occasions, but this Mother's Day had nothing special. Two (of 5) of our guests were late so I'll give them that. Calamari had so many peppers you couldn't find the calamari. One filet ordered medium came med-well. Espresso came before dessert. Service was slow and there was no celebratory feeling for the night. No pictures no glitter no nothing except a moderately good dinner.
They were jammed as usual...rightfully so...we came on time..were seated on time..and food was fantastic...the swordfish was the best I had..crabcakes super...sean the server was great and Barbara at reception welcomed us warmly. GM Jeff sure knows how to keep them coming back...
Birthday dinner for my daughter, hostess asked when they called to confirm the reservation and when we arrived the table was sprinkled with sparkles and little birthday cakes very nice touch. She was presented with a birthday card signed by the entire staff and most stopped by the table to wish her a happy birthday. All in all a great dinner. Only downside was my girlfriends steak was over done so they fired another which came back almost raw. Third one was done perfectly and management handled it very well by comping her meal and dessert for the table. Still one of my favorite dinner places.
We came here for our one year wedding anniversary. There were rose petals on our table which was very sweet. Joseph was a great server. We had the shrimp cocktail, beet salad, French onion soup, filet mignon, porterhouse, creamed spinach and potatoes au gratin - all excellent. Get the creme brûlée cheesecake. Truly enjoyable night.
Not going to lie-it's was totally disappointing. If you just gave me the food and didn't tell me where it was from, I would have guessed my grandmother's assisted living home. It was that bad. My husband ordered a filet cooked medium and I ordered a ribeye cooked medium rare. I think they mixed the orders because mine was medium and the filet was bloody. Mine was done more than I'd like but not worth sending back. The problem was that it was completely unseasoned and flavorless. I had to salt it. Several times. My husband asked them to cook his more and it came back barely medium rare. He asked for it to be done just a bit more still and they charred it to a crisp. Like a hockey puck. He ate it because he was starving but did dit was terrible. They didn't charge us for it his steak but really they should have comped more of our meal. It was not good. The mashed potatoes were like glue. The "special salad" was a plate of arugula with a few beets and a hunk of cheese. I've had better salads in business class. The best thing by far were the soy glazed Brussels sprouts. The server was nice but totally rushed and on autopilot. I heard her giving the same shpeil to several tables. I get that you have a patter but it would be nice if it felt a bit more authentic. This was a disappointing experience all around. Bummer.
In a word, it was terrible from start to finish. Every course was served to the wrong person, two of the soups were unintelligible, two steaks were underdone, and one of our guests ended up with a stomach ache after eating the salmon. We would have complained, but the waiter ignored us most of the evening. Well, at least the wine was good- all the restaurant could do to it was open it!
This was our first and last trip to this Capital Grille. We have visited others and they are usually outstanding.
consistently good in all categories for food, service and ambiance
the group I was with was remembering the business meals we used to enjoy at the Pillar House on Rt 128 and we agreed that the Capital Grille in Newton has become our new Pillar House for business lunch meetings in the Newton area
Capital Grille is one of the better steak chains. There is sufficient variety even for the non-steak lovers. The food is all excellent quality and the service attentive. The food tends to be on the rich side, so it is not a "light" meal. Good for an occasional outing.
It was my son's birthday. I will keep it simple. My steak was undercooked badly and I sent it back and they brought a new one cooked exactly the same. I ordered it medium and it was bloody red all the way through both times.
They set us near a office/coat closet and I had to ask 3 times and then ask for the manager to close the door so that our view was not of the schedules of the staff and the harsh light was shining right there on our table. It was more like being at a baseball game than The Capital Grill that I know in Virginia.
They tried to apologize at the end with desserts for us but the famous coconut cream pie that is my favorite had no coconut cream. It was just crust and whip cream.
I was crying by the time we left. We live in Virginia and flew all the way here to take our son out for dinner for his birthday.
Sadly, I cannot recommend.
