Capital Grille

Fodor's Review

A carnivore's utopia awaits within the clubby, dark-wood walls of this beloved steak house favored by those on expense accounts. Adjust your starched napkin and tuck into such staples as lobster and crab cakes, a massive shellfish platter, and succulent meats such as the 24-ounce dry-aged porterhouse. The crowd-watching is as tasty as the food: VIPs in striped suits make deals over dessert, and wives in Manolo Blahnik heels sip martinis.

Another steakhouse chain

It's another of these upscale steakhouse chains, arguably better than most of its ilk. Excellent breadbasket and service, respectable steak, but ungodly expensive and not the best value for it.

no value

no value for the bucks. overpriced for food. restaurant professionals would never visit this restaurant because of high prices. this is for folks on the expense account and people with excess $$$$ who do not know good food value if it kicked them in the butt.

Great Atmosphere and Food

The steaks are as good as you'll get anywhere, the lobster expensive but worth every penny. We love the atmosphere here with the hopping bar and buzz of activity. We had no problem with private conversation though. Haven't been to boston in a few years but are returning next month and already have our reservations for this restaurant. Wouldn't miss it.

The Best of the Best

Wow. I repeat, WOW. The best of Newbury Street... I would say among the best of Boston! We did NOT have beef (although I would gladly return to sample it) and instead enjoyed their seafood. All was wonderfull. From appetizer to sides (We could not fathom dessert). And as compared to others, the wine list was not overpriced. Did I say, WOW? I should have.

The best of Newbury Street!

We loved the Capital Grille! The food was out of this world, as was the service. I rated the atmosphere at a "4" because it is soooo loud! It was a bit distracting, but a great place to people watch and enjoy a great meal! We'd return in a heartbeat as well as recommend it to everyone!
