When we visited it was for an anniversary dinner; it was our 3rd (or so) dinner at The Capital Grille, and when we booked the reservation we were asked whether it was a special occasion. We started the meal with an excellent wine flight, and our waiter gave us a very nice anniversary card (nice touch). The entrees were awesome:... More

Went to the capital Grille and had a great time with friends. The macaroni and lobster dish is to die for. Also the salmon was very good! The wine selection with the pairing adds to the ambience of the restaurant.

Dined at The Capital Grille with friends during Chicago Restaurant Week for a birthday celebration. Food, drinks, service, & atmosphere were all outstanding. They made our birthday dinner very special with a beautiful dessert plate. We look forward to going back.

Great high end restaurant that does excellent steak with friendly service. The fillet steak is up there with the best I've ever tasted. A really nice place to sit in and treat yourself.

We happened to be in town during Restaurant Week. They were extremely busy, but the bartenders were still very personable, the wait staff was delightful and we were seated within minutes of our reservation time. Our food was fabulous (Lamb Chops for hubby and Filet for me). Can't wait to come back.

Capital Grille is one of the best restaurants we know. The food is outstanding, service superior and the ambience one of the best features. We always leave the place with a great feeling, memorable. Quite loud sometimes, true, because some guests forget they are in a public place (specially after a couple of drinks), but this is manageable. Ask the... More

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
