We walked in today for brunch at 11.30 am. And feasted on the clam chowder, the lobster and crab cakes and broiled lobster with butter, along with the Wedge salad.
Noel did a good job looking after us, obliging us with 2 dishes off the menu!
Everything we had was Super! Only wished the salad had more blue cheese!

Four of us had dinner at The Capital Grille Thursday evening. We had reservations and were seated quickly. Appetizers included steak tartare, grilled garlic shrimp in an iron skillet, and a wedge salad. All were satisfactory. Main courses were rib steak on the bone, herb-roasted chicken, kona rubbed steak, and a porterhouse steak. Sides included baked potato, creamed spinach, and as gratin potatoes. All were good, but I thought the steaks were a little thin and didn't get as crusty a sear as I would like while still being medium rare. Service was attentive and overall it was a good experience, although expensive, $460 for the 4 of us.

The Capital Grille is always fantastic, it is truly guaranteed you'll have a great experience every time. I finally made it to the location on Boylston St. and I can't wait to go back! We ordered the Lamb Chops as an appetizer, they were perfectly cooked and juicy. The oysters were fresh briny heaven. I had the filet and my comrades both ordered the Porterhouse. All steaks were bursting with flavor and cooked to the textbook definition of medium rare. Sides were delicious, fluffy creamy mashed potatoes and bacon loaded Brussel sprouts. My dirty Martini was so perfect, I ordered a second one. The best part of our experience, however, was the service. Khalid was absolutely outstanding! He was attentive and charismatic, and I can assure you, we never had a glass run dry. Our dining experience was certainly enhanced by the high level of service. I'm so glad to see this Boston standby is still as awesome as ever.

My parents and I arrived in Boston quite late on a Friday night, and just wandered into the Capital as it was the first open restaurant we saw. What a great surprise. The steak was so delicious. We all also enjoyed our oysters and clam chowder. I will definitely go back--on purpose next time!
