Maybe it was an off-night but what's so special about this place. some of my friends love it but I thought it was just average.

The Capital Grille is the most over-priced and over-rated restaurant in Chicago. I make better steaks at home and for what you pay for just the cut of meat you order, no potato, salad, vegetable, nothing, the steaks should be the best you have ever had! And that is far from the truth! I have been there on multiple occasions,... More

From the moment we walked in, The Capital Grill staff made our anniversary special. Once we gave them our names (we made reservations), they congratulated us on our anniversary enthusiastically, showed us to our table which was covered with rose pedals, and had an anniversary card signed by the staff. Tony, our waiter, was generous with his time and made... More

An elegant lunch for two can be had here with the $20 plate. Our server, David, suggested the soup of the day lobster bisque for a $3 additional charge. He was certainly correct when he said the soup contained large chunk of lobster! The best ever soup! The flavor of the steak entrees we picked were cooked to perfection at... More

There are times I have been here and never had a better steak with such great service. Other times food was okay, not for the price and service was just okay. I found when it's great, it's fantastic but when it's not it's just okay and you wonder why you spent that much money.

The food and atmosphere is simply amazing. OK, this place is a little pricey, but when you leave you will understand the old saying 'you get what you pay for'. The steaks are simply to die for. The wine list is extensive. And the Service is impeccable. Been here a few times, but everyone has to try this place at... More

Our server was David. He could not have been more accommodating. His recommendations far exceeded our expectations. The bone in rib eye could be cut with a butter knife. He also recommended the spinach salad and mashed potatoes. The dessert I had to bring home because I was so full. Would definitely go back for a special occasion dinner.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary here and the meal, service, and atmosphere was excellent. We ate in the bar area and started with the lamb lollipops. Well these were not lollipops, rather 4 rather good size lamb chops. The meat was tender and tasty, no gamey flavor. Following a decent Caesar salad, we had the New York strip and the... More

On June 11, I attended a luncheon in memory of a very dear friend. About 50 people attended and we were treated very respectfully. Our waiter was very courteous. The luncheon menu had been chosen with everyone's tastes in mind. The food was well prepared and delicious.
