I lived in Chicago for most of my life. So when I returned for business and stayed at the Loews in Rosemont, I naturally wanted a great steak that Chicago has always been known for. The concierge recommended The Capital Grill that was just next door. Maybe it was just an off night for them, but my wife and I... More

I've been to The Capital Grille in Rosemont several times and I have always had a fantastic meal whether it was lunch or dinner. The wait staff is always very professional and their attention to detail is beyond reproach. They truly understand customer service. Even when in occasion I have eaten at the bar, the bartenders provide the same level... More

We had an excellent dinner at Capital Grille. Food and service were amazing. They made my birthday seem very special. Monica was our waitress and she was very attentive and even took our picture. It was a great experience. This was my birthday dessert.

I get it. This is a first class place with exceptional service and decent (not fabulous) food. Why is it necessary to be ridiculously expensive as well? Good food but there are MUCH better values (and food) elsewhere.

Came in last minute for dinner before a show at the Rosemont Theater. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. We had 2 waiters who acted like we were their only table. Very impressed! Would recommend and return.

First, if you park in the garage, make certain you ask for a voucher before you leave. It would have been $22 for parking if I hadn't. Next enjoy great food, drink, fantastic service, artistic presentation, and amazing ambiance! Really, you can't go wrong with capital. Enjoy the experience.

Never before has a restaurant made me feel so appreciated and special! The extra touches to make my birthday memorable were incomparable. I admit, I'm high maintenance...but Capital Grille and Giovanni surpassed my hopes and expectations. Thank you!!

Good just not excellent. For price you may want more. Chicago is renowned for it steak houses, if looking for steak in Chicagoland area there are plenty of better options. I went with steak and although it was good, it should not be mistaken for any major steak house chain competitor. Menu is not extensive and can probably get most... More

I went for dinner with a few colleagues and we were seated in a private room. We each got our own entree and shared desserts and appetizers. I got the lobster and steak and it was perfectly done. The mac and cheese appetizer was a hit with our group. The cheesecake was one of the best we had, very fluffy... More

When I rate a restaurant, everything is relative. If I am spending over $100 per person, I expect a much better meal and service than a restaurant where the average meal without drinks is under $25. This restaurant is over priced for the quality of the food. The atmosphere is satisfactory and the service was satisfactory. The food was not.... More
