The portions are large, so we shared an appetizer, a salad a, steak and a side dish of sautéed spinach. Everything was well seasoned and well cooked.

Always good food. Great service from entering to sitting down to ordering and valet. They always know when to ask if you need something, never interrupting and usually five servers to a table which means no one waits for another person plate.

I've been to many Capital Grill's all over the country and raved about the quality of the service and food to my fairly new girlfriend and boy, were the tow of us disappointed.

Started off with our shared dinner being placed on my place mat with no dishes so we waited a good 5 minutes for our waiter to bring us plates. Although I asked for my meat to be pink it was med well and we found it very chewy. The waiter noticed our expressions and offered us free desert but I came to the Capital for the steak not the desert. It was a shame that I blew $250!

We always enjoy our visits to this wonderful restaurant. We had no complaints on this visit, except one minor thing. Why is it so difficult to bring coffee at the same time as the dessert?

It was a great experience overall, the service is not what it was used to be but still great.
Our waiter was very good, but they mixed up with our order. I got my husband’s side and he got the wrong one (he ordered another thing). They accommodate us so no problem.
This never happened to us before at The Capital Grille!

All of steaks were cooked to perfection!! The only thing I was disappointed in was the lobster Mac & cheese...I haven’t ordered it a couple of years or so, but it was a huge mound of ziti with bread crumbs & one piece of lobster. I used to brag about it in the past, but not anymore. Our server Stephani is just amazing as always!!! We all laughed along with jokes and even remembered the food and drinks we enjoy!!!❤️❤️

We've never had a bad meal at Capital Grille, the food is always outstanding and the service impeccable. I highly recommend it to all my friends, and there's special value at Restaurant Weeks. When there is a special occasion to be celebrated and you notify the restaurant, they go out of their way to make it special. Thanks for all of your hard work and attention to detail, you really deserve the highest praise.

Went very early for dinner, so the restaurant only had a couple of occupied tables, very quiet. We were there for restaurant week, so they had a pre-fixe menu that was a great deal. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal and Dan took great care of us.

We are big fans of the Capital Grille BUT this was not one of the better experiences we have had at the Stamford location. We are going to write if off due to it being Restaurant Week so the restaurant was busy but both steaks were not prepared to the right temperature. We ordered the filet medium but both were definitely more on the rare side. Don't like to send steaks back since they normally just get put under a heating lamp to help them cook some more and that kills any flavor the steaks have. Steaks not prepared to the right temperature are a pet peeve of mine (especially at steakhouses where the chef should be able to achieve this in their sleep). Service was very good as usual.

Delicious meal from the Winter Restaurant week menu! Service was magnificent as usual. Our waiter was John who was quite friendly and attentive as well as the other servers. Always a great experience here and the restaurant week menu is a very good value. Thank you, Capital Grille Stamford!

Capital Grille is one of my favorite restaurants. I frequent the STAMFORD location, the Palm Beach location and the one in NYC.
We had exceptional service at Stamford last Saturday. The food is always consistent and the service great too. This night the service was the best I’ve ever received. I’ve never had better service anywhere. In addition, the group that greeted us were also exceptional.

We always enjoy eating at the capital grille. It usually isn't too noisy, so you can have a conversation with your entire table. The service is great and the food delicious. They have a separate gluten free menu and the waiters have all been good about knowing what can and cannot be gluten free. The servers are also great about being able to recommend a wine in various budgets. Love going for restaurant week they always have one of the best menus.

Bartender was very blah and dry. The restaurant week menu comes with 2 sides but if your in a group they only bring out 2 sides for the group to share even though each person is charged individually for 2 sides per person. When I mentioned that to the server he had the audacity to get an attitude because I told him that we each wanted our 2 separate sides that we were being charged for

Was disappointed in my Filet Mignon. I had ordered it to be Medium and it was extremely rare and I had to send it back. It took awhile for this to occur and when it did return there was barely any meat to what was there to begin with. It didn't even look like a full meal. I also had ordered a side of vegetables and had specific requirements for preparation and it unfortunately did not pan out that way. I was there to celebrate my late Father's birthday in his memory and just felt disappointed.

I took a friend for a birthday dinner. He was new to capital grille and I am not. This Stamford location was delightful. Service was on point and my waiter was professional and very attentive. I love when your staff check up on you and ask how your experience is going. Definitely puts them over the top. Especially considering I was in Blackstones Greenwich two days earlier. I did write a poor review. Did they contact me? nope. Will I return? Nope!!

It's always a pleasure going to this Capital Grille. Our waiter is attentive, friendly and personalizes our experience based on previous visits - all without being intrusive. The food is as good as it gets. This time we had the bone in filet special and the tomahawk veal chop - both fantastic. They have a great wine list with everything from reasonably priced selections to crazy expensive. And they make wonderful blue cheese stuffed olives to go in our dirty martinis. Heaven!

The food was delicious. Portions were good. The service was superb, our server was Michael C. Very professional & knowledgeable. It was my friends birthday. We got our picture taken & given to us in a stand up frame. A birthday 🍰 platter that said happy birthday written in chocolate with samples of cheesecake & chocolate cake. A little pricey but worth it.
