Imagine our surprise--a pleasant one, to be sure--when we accidentally discovered a Capital Grille location in the Chestnut Hill neighborhood of the Boston suburb of Newton. It was unlike any other Capital Grille that my wife and I have visited--in Chicago or Sarasota or Tampa...More

We were able to get a table on a Saturday night for 6 in a private room which was great because we could all hear each other. Our waiter was funny and nice. He brought us different sauces to try on our filet steaks.

Very mediocre food. Didn't love the steak and the apps and salads weren't much better. The service was good. Atmosphere is dark and not much fun. It is overpriced and there are way too many other great options for steak in this area.

You'll quickly see why The Boston Globe proclaimed “we've never been happier in our lives,” after an evening at The Capital Grille. Drawing from its New England roots, The Capital Grille’s relaxed elegance and style have become a trademark of the Boston area. Join us just east of the Atrium Mall and a million miles fromthe ordinary.
