The Capital Grille - Chestnut Hill Ratings and Reviews
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.
This is a Capital Grille so there are really no surprises left. It was however the first time having their Steak Oscar. A rare filet with crab meat and asparagus with Hollandaise sauce. Best steak I've ever had at CG. Fortunately ask for rare as it was almost medium rare. If medium rare was the starting point and the steak was equivalently overdone, the steak would have been a ruinous medium plus. This is my new go-to steak at Capital Grille. Well done Capital Grille.
Nice booth minimal wait as we arrived early
When we didn't order wine waiter seemed to rush the service. Generous portions one steak perfect the other a bit undercooked for Medium. Would go back again and have been dining at this Capitol grill for Years
I would request different waiter
The only problem is the hostess forgot to indicate we arrived for our 12:15 pm Reservation and were seated. Once I received your email that we had not arrived, I notified the hostess. She then indicated we had just been seated when in fact we had already paid the bill.
Outstanding service from the moment the valet opened the car door until we departed. Special attention was given to us the entire evening making our anniversary dinner exceptional. The food was prepared and presented to the highest standards. We have had similar experiences, even without a special occasion!
The Capital Grille is very customer focused - all the staff seem intent on creating a memorable, happy experience. I'm a vegetarian, but the other three diners all praised their steaks and chops - the servings were generous, but only my 90 yr old mother had any left to take home. I had the special salad and it was great. The food was cooked to perfection. I'm a little more of a foodie, so I don't get the value proposition of paying $50 of a hunk of meat and ordering everything else a la carte. This is definitely high end meat and potatoes (with surf thrown in if you like that). Their attention to quality is commendable, and the service was outstanding. I prefer a little more local and creative flair for my special occasions, but the person we were feting seemed really happy. Thanks for the pleasant memories.
Traditional steak house with a sophisticated millennial, Chestnut Hill vibe. Delicious high calorie, unhealthy food, rich in cholesterol and high in salt and sugar! Indulge widely in your 20's, less wildly in your 30's and consult your doctor in your 40's (and later) before making reservations more often than twice yearly. If you are older than 65, eat to your heart's content, but check to see if your life insurance is paid up to date. Still, all in all, it's truly yummy, unless you're vegan. Eat, drink and bring money!
The service was great but we were disappointed with the food. Capital Grille is no longer outstanding. My steak was over cooked and I ended up eating alone once the brought me another one. The staff was very apologetic and were amazing dealing with the issue. However, the food should be perfect to begin with.
We were celebrating my husband's birthday - the table was set with sparkles - there was a birthday card signed by the staff and a cheesecake - chocolate flourless cake sampler - all nice touches. Our server was very accommodating - we didn't like the first wine we chose - she suggested another which was very good. The service was excellent.
We visited with my mother-in-law for a dual birthday celebration. Capital Grille is not a "family" restaurant per say (no children's menu, very expensive) but they were incredibly accommodating to our two children. The food was excellent and our waiter was perfectly attentive. A wonderful celebration overall.
An establishment that rests on it's history as how I would describe Capital Grille. We ordered the special beet salad and it was anything but special. I have had better salads in Mississippi. The steak was fine but for $69 I had to ask what was I getting. A lot of extra hype for a $25 steak. This steak in the Midwest at this price would not even be on the menu. It would be an embarrassment. This establishment could do MUCH better and should.
I've been here a few times and generally like tis restaurant, but find their steaks inconsistent from visit to visit. This time I found my steak, while cooked to my Medium-rare request, to be dry/chewy on the outside, and quite bland tasting. It tasted like it was cooked, and then left under a lamp for some time. I did not enjoy it. In these type of establishments, consistency is key as steaks are the read and butter of the establishments and should be done with perfection every time. This time, I felt I was at the Outback grill. Poor quality.
Only problem was we were a party of 6 and they put us at a small table. It seems like it was because we had kids- all the kids were in the same area of the restaurant ... not the "good" tables. This is always frustrating to be relegated to the back of the restaurant because we have children. They are well behaved and paying just as much to eat there!!!! My husband had to
Basically sit in the aisle because they crammed us into a table.
Had a great time. Food was excellent. I really appreciated when the manager came to ask us if everything was great and if we wer enjoying ourselves and if we needed anything else . That makes someone feel important and appreciated. I loved that special touch. Cannot wait for the next time. Great customer service!
