The Capital Grille - Chicago - Downtown
It was a little wait period even with the reservation but Rich was super nice and making sure we had everything he was on top of everything the wait was worth it! Definitely coming back
We all had a great experience. Our waiter was outstanding. The restaurant had a wine special which way we decided to go there. The wine was amazing.
Generous Pour is such a great deal during Summer months. Diego is a fabulous waiter. The food is always delicious/outstanding. Just be prepared, the entrees are expensive.
Been to five different capital grilles and this by far was the biggest disappointment. From the iPad they set down on the table, which I promptly closed (I’d pull out my phone if I wanted to look at a screen). Which our waiter quickly reopened. The waiter was pushy about their wine special. I had to ask multiple times for him to “give us a minute” as we wanted to have a conversation with each other, not him. The capital grille has always been a nostalgic event for me. But this turned out to be an embarrassment as I had so many options I could have taken us to in Chicago and I chose with my heart. Next time I’ll choose with my brain and go somewhere who’s fine dining prices match their experience.
Awesome service, great food. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
It was a lovely anniversary dinner!
Best lobster bisque I've ever had
Everything was great. Derreck (not sure that spelling is right) was great. My husband got the wine special they are running and he was very knowledgeable. Food was excellent if a little pricey.
The essence of a fantastic meal is wonderful food and outstanding service. My party of four definitely had both when we dined at Capital Grill on July 10, 2019. The food was absolutely wonderful; from the appetizers to the desserts it couldn’t have been any better. Our server, Angela, was absolutely terrific. She took wonderful care of us without hovering but was there the moment we needed anything. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend anyone to dine at Capital Grill and be sure to ask for Angela.
The food never disappoints! Consistently wonderful steaks and the best lobster bisque around.
When visiting downtown Chicago and seeking exquisite dining....the Capital Grille is the place to go.
Everything about my experience was amazing! I was celebrating my birthday with a friend and the entire staff ensured it was phenomenal!!! I can't wait to come back.
I love the linen tablecloths giving the Chicago Capital Grille an elegant feeling. The food was delicious and the service friendly and attentive. A must go for all locals, tourists and business/convention people.
I don’t recall the name of my server, it may have been Robert. He was awesome. Kept everything really chill and gave recommendations when they were warranted and was knowledgeable about the menu. I was late for my reservation but they were still super accommodating. I hade the porcini crusted steak for the first time and it was hands down the best I’ve ever had. I will come back to this location
Superb atmosphere, very attentive service, varied menu good food
Nice enough... not a quiet table in the place, though. Sides are OK... good quality, but flavorless. Steak tartare...somehow I remember it being better. Good scallops, though.
We’ve been dining here since it opened. It never disappoints. Always a fine dining experience.
Our server Paul, was very knowledgeable about the wines we were drinking. We enjoy the Generous Pour, which is a great deal, along with Capital Grille usual great food. It was a wonderful evening.
this place should teach others what customer service really means. the food was fantastic only toped by the friendly, impeccable service. well worth the prices and we will be back.
The Capital Grille is always a safe choice for outstanding food and equally outstanding service.
The restaurant staff went above and beyond to make it a special birthday. They took our photo with the birthday dessert and provided us with a framed picture at the end of the meal.
Everything from the bread to the appetizers to the steaks and lamb chops to the dessert was excellent. Temperatures of the meat were done correctly the first time. The service was impeccable. Kudos to Blair Prince. Definitely will return.
My family and I had a great experience here! Easily one of the best steakhouses i’ve been to. From the food and service to the ambience, we were all so very pleased. They made our special occasion a memorable one. Already planning our return!
Our party of four had dinner here on a Saturday night. The service was excellent and we enjoyed the food. We mostly had various steaks and all were prepared just as we wanted.
The ambiance was typical for high-end steakhouses. The tables were spaced well apart. A small child who was also part of our party was looked after and some dishes suitable for her were brought out.
All in all, we were very pleased with the experience and I would highly recommend the restaurant for either a business or personal celebratory meal.
Just perfect steaks 🥩 😍 and awesome service / on our top list for Chicago
Excellent steak and great mashed potatoes- combined with a perfect red wine. It can’t get any better.
Meal was excellent
A VERY well run restaurant- everything wonderful!
Danny was so attentive and provided us with excellent service.
We frequent many Capital Grille restaurants across the US and do so because the food is always consistently good. However, in our 2 visits to this location within 30 days, we found that the food quality is not what is use to be - lobster overcooked and the steak was just not good, didn't taste like steak.
The staff asked about my occasion, a Graduation, and decorated our table with confetti and then provided us with flutes of champagne and cake!
They went above and beyond to make it memorable
Our food was impeccably prepared, our server attentive, and our visit was wonderful. It was our anniversary and not only was there a handwritten note on our table with heart confetti, but the manager comped several items for us as well as bringing us mini desserts to share. We would highly recommend to anyone!
This is our favorite lunch spot, when we come into the city. We always have great food and wonderful service. We are able to have quite conversation for our lunch date.
The food, cocktails, and service were all top notch!!
Our family recently had a small reunion dinner the staff handled everything with efficiency and professionalism. Everyone in our 8-person party thoroughly enjoyed the calamari, shrimp, scallops, lamb, steak and especially the lobster mac & cheese. From the minute we arrived, the front desk staff, servers and managers, went out of their way to exceed our expectations. The ambiance, staff, and food made a special occasion even more special. Service was timely and personal. From the cocktails, to the appetizers, dinner and dessert…everything was executed perfectly. The next time we visit Chicago, this CG will be on the top of our places to visit. Highly recommend for any occasion.
Excellent meal. Sea Bass cooked to perfection and attentive service. Service was always timely. Crab cakes were amazing.
The Capital Grille never disappoints. It is one of our favorite restaurants for all occasions.
They made us feel important from the moment we entered until we left. The service was great, the food was delicious and perfectly prepared. I would highly recommend it to everyone.
This restaurant provides the quiet, sophisticated setting that we need after a day spent in meetings. The food is always delicious and the staff gracious and accommodating.
The service, the atmosphere the FOOD was great! This was my first time and it did not disappoint. Thank you for making my 16th wedding anniversary dinner a memorable!
