The Capitol Grille restauarant is always our favorite for special occasions! This time was no different, the food was excellent and the service outstanding. Our server, Byron was outstanding! He was attentive, engaging and went over the top in making our evening wonderful. Our meals...were cooked to perfection, all four of us had the filets. Byron brought extra garnishes and desserts, We were celebrating a birthday and he truly made it special. I enjoyed the Cesar salad and always enjoy that the dressing is not overwhelming. I highly recommend the creme brulee for dessert.More

The bread was stale, my wife’s drink was flat and my steak came medium when I had ordered it medium rare. To the waitress’s credit she did offer to make another one, but I did not feel like waiting while my wife ate. They did...give us free dessert to make up for it, but overall the experience has been much better before.More

So disappointed to find that only the dine out Boston dinner menu at $46 was offered yesterday for lunch....We are 2 senior citizens who have gone for lunch for many years... I am hoping that they bring back the dine out Boston lunch menu as...everything was just too expensive...$10 up charge for the sirloin steak as well..More

Let me start by saying we've had dinner here on many occasions - always excellent. Last week I met a friend for lunch and we sat in the bar area. There are two high-top tables as you enter, neither is great. One under a TV...and the other is too close to the entry. You feel like your back is in the entryway. Wished we had changed tables, our fault. We were served rolls that were definitely reheated from the day before. When they cooled mine was not edible as it was SO hard. Very surprised. Also in the basket was flatbread crackers that were fine. I had the lobster salad that was small, but delicious and filling. The coffee we had after wasn't the hottest. So different than dining at night. No issues with service, but I wouldn't return for lunch.More

This is an excellent restaurant, though it is extremely busy at lunch. Reservations are definitely recommended. The food is good, and service is friendly and reasonably quick. The setting is nice, although typical of a high end steakhouse.

I made reservations and let them know the special occasion. The table was a little decorated and had a lovely little card on it. The food was exceptional and the staff incredible. One of the best steaks I have eaten. Brule is outstanding.

Atmosphere was busy but nice. Service was very slow. We were there almost 3 hours. We ordered the nightly special- bone in filet. It was $66 without a side. It was good but not worth $66.Food is over priced. We were excited to try this...restaurant but disappointed.More

I am typically a HUGE fan of Capital Grille, but this was the worst experience we’ve ever had. The food was quite good as usual, but the service was beyond bad. We sat in the lounge so perhaps that was the reason. I didn’t expect...such a huge disparity in service between the regular dining room and the lounge. Truly, it felt like we were dining at Applebee’s. Our server was really bad — indifferent, unfriendly, distant. We will not return to this location. Back to The Boston Capital Grille where we have always had good experiences. I would avoid this location until management makes changes. Very disappointing!!!!!!!More

I must say that we were disappointed in our most recent visit. Entrees were not cooked as requested and were returned, tenderloin was tuff, deserts were forgotten and delivered after a reminder, and even the coffee had grounds in the cups. Service was also below...par. We expected much more from this restaurant and probably won’t be back anytime soon.More

Team Burlington went beyond my expectations on making my birthday dinner so special. I made reservations online for myself and my girlfriends only stating that the occasion is for my birthday. Upon arrival, we were brought into this beautiful private dining room with gorgeous artworks...on the wall. On the table were confetti’s and a handwritten note! We were in awe by the thoughtfulness. I will never forget this experience. The ambience is classy and the foods are very delicious. I will be definitely a returning customer. Thank you for all your hard work and your thoughtfulness!More

Hello, there was not a fee for that particular room. There was no alcohol minimum either.
