Capital Grille Review

In a town that loves its steaks, the Rhode Island–based chain was taking a chance moving in and pretending to offer anything different from the other high-end big-boy steak houses. That said, Capital Grille—housed in a dark, noisy, broodingly decorated room typical of the genre—has much to recommend it, including a drop-dead Delmonico, textbook French onion soup, and terrific skin-on mashed potatoes. If you were ever to try steak tartare, this would be the place to do it, and the lobster is one of the best in town. The wine list is long, important, and expensive, but the service is remarkably fresh-faced and eager to please.

    best of the lot

    This is a cow town - no two ways about it. There must be a dozen high end steak joints downtown alone. This is the best of the lot. It's typical dark clubby and overpriced. Just what you expect in other words. Food and service are better than the others though. But at $40 for a piece of meat on a bare plate you should at least get a good piece of meat cooked correctly. It will be.
