Capital Grille has always been one of our favorite restaurants to go for dinner during the week or a special event. Last evening we were there, waited over 30 minutes past our reservation time,. people were stacked up in the hallway outside the bar waiting for tables, there was no social distancing, the staff at the front door was very stressed trying to figure out who and where to seat people We were asked multiple times to move not to social distance as you would think, but because they needed to get through. Also I noticed that lots of people are coming in inappropriately dressed for such a wonderful restaurant. Although everything once we were seated at the table was wonderful I. was very disappointed at this particular establishment.

We eat here often, and it’s always an amazing experience. Food is outstanding, service as well. It’s our favorite restaurant in Connecticut hands down.

Celebrated a good friends retirement. It was the first time they had been to the Capital Grille, I know it won’t be their last! He told us it was the best steak he ever had. We of course already knew that. Thank you

If you enjoy steak, then go no further! You will never have a better one than at The Capital Grille. Mouth watering, delicious and cooked to perfection.

Not happy that we weren’t told ahead of time that curfew was 10pm, therefore when we ordered dessert, we were told at 9;45 pm that we could have dessert there but would need to leave restaurant at 10. This was annoying especially given the money spent to dine there.

Food and service is exceptional as usual. The only problem was a couple had a screaming child with them that kept running around. The restaurant tried putting them in a private room but the child kept screaming and running out of the room. This unfortunately soured our experience when I specifically put in the reservation that I wanted a seat at one of the two tables abutting the kitchen. When I got there, they said it would be at least a 15 minute wait to get the table I requested. Unfortunately being seated in a corner booth outside the room where they placed the screaming child, was directly in our site and we could hear them screaming in the room and kept running by our table when she busted out of the room. We should've been asked to move our table since there were amply tables to move to. I will know better next time! Otherwise, spectacular as usual!

We love Capital Grille and come here quite often as far as eating out goes but Luis is a great server. He is attentive but not hovering, assumptive but not pushy, exactly what you would want in a server. If you go here - ask for Luis.

I had the lobster bisque, tenderloin with lobster tails, and for sides we chose Brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes, and sautéed mushrooms. Everything was delicious. They did a great job spacing out the tables.

Overall the experience was delightful. The Caesar Salad was okay and the asparagus had an odd seasoning. Once the asparagus was corrected the meal was great. Thank you for an enjoyable evening.

Ruben was incredibly helpful with wine choices and added his special touch to our meal. Thank you!

My wife's tuna was of the very highest quality and perfectly prepared, rare! My filet with Gorgonzola and reduction also was perfectly cooked.

I would highly recommend the cheesecake "crème brulée"!

Food was amazing! Very good service. Although we were no where near a door, it was very drafty and I felt cold air all night which made it uncomfortable. There was a customer next to us that had an insanely loud laugh and it was so distracting and obnoxious and other customers were getting upset and I don’t understand why he was not told to quiet down. I was very surprised by that. But I will definitely be returning, the steak and lobster was the best we ever had in CT.

Thanks for another amazing dinner experience! We truly appreciate the personal touch. It was for my husband’s birthday. I had asked for a quiet corner (booth if possible) and we got it. Jordan was very attentive and made sure we enjoyed the night. Loved our steaks. Thanks for the dessert. We will be back again.

Booked a table for our wedding anniversary and had a marvelous evening. They made a fuss over us (rose petals on the tablecloth, complimentary treats, took our photo) which was unexpected and delightful. Oysters were some of the best I have ever had, steaks were good but on the rare side- drinks, sides and dessert all delicious. Prices are high but the level of service and attention to detail all impeccable. Highly recommend for a special occasion or to impress someone!

Brittany was very professional, caring and offered suggestions when asked. When she found out it was my husband and my anniversary she quickly brought out rose petals and a card for us, which was very thoughtful. We had a fantastic meal- the shrimp cocktail was fresh and tasted delicious! Steaks all around were perfectly cooked. I am a big fan of the chocolate torte and it never disappoints. We look forward to more meals with you in the coming year!

It was a birthday celebration party that included my wife and I plus two very good friends(Husband &Wife). The atmosphere was great, nice and quiet how we like our dinners to be. The service and the food was excellent with the table making different choices for a better shared experience. I would definitely recommend Capital Grille as a choice for a special celebration moment.

We've been to other Capital Grille locations, but this was the first time in Hartford. We went with another couple and were seated at an intimate cozy table, perfect for catching up while distancing from other diners. Our server was awesome, seeing to every need we had. We did a little of everything...wine, cocktails, appetizers, entrees, dessert and after dinner drinks. We were never rushed and the pace of the food allowed for relaxing in between. It was such a treat to get dressed up a little and enjoy a wonderful meal with friends. Thank you to the Capital Grille team!
