Went to CG with our good friends and decided to keep it casual by eating outside
(gorgeous night for it). While the outdoors is in a parking lot, it's still good for people watching and for keeping the meal casual (I find the inside of CG to be a little stuffy). Anyway, the food and service were excellent and we had a fantastic night. I recommend CG as a solid Go To in the world of steaks when you don't want to risk having a good meal and a good time.

This is not an inexpensive restaurant. Now that they are no longer offering free parking, (extra if more than 2 hours), they diminished the value of dining Capital Grille since parking is a real problem.

Valet service was very very poor.

Greeting staff not attentive to customer's needs and said I had cancelled my reservation.

Food was good. We ate outside. A lot of flys. Service was adequate. quite expensive and not a good value compared to other steakhouses.

Dined for a small business lunch on a summer Fri. I’ve been to Cap Grille’s all over the country and they’re consistently high quality, great service and very professional. Always a no-brainer. Food’s great although they scarcely change their menu so in some ways, I might go back more often if they had variety.

Yet another fantastic experience thanks to the wonderful staff at Capital Grill Stamford. The food is always spot on perfect, but if the staff weren’t congenital profession and welcoming the food just wouldn’t matter. This location consistently fires on all cylinders. Bone in Kona crusted strip cooked perfect medium rare, companion had a perfectly prepared swordfish. Highly recommend the Cesar salad with white anchovies, yes, best in Stamford. Truffle fries, lobster Mac and cheese, asparagus all wonderfully seasoned. Our server was excellent and truly elevated the experience; I partook in the “generous pour” event which is an unlimited tasting of seven different wines. She provided tasting notes and little anecdotes/nuances of each wine…truly exceptional experience yet again.

Great ambiance, great service. Sides were perfect. Ordered two of the specials. One was supposed to be medium well, was medium. The other, the porcini special, was very thin, medium well when was supposed to be medium and had a slight burned taste.

We ordered the by stripe off the bone and shared. It was cut in half. Half for me and half for my husband. I have never been to a steakhouse when a steak was not served sliced. Presentation was totally lacking

We eat here all of the time. We used to anyway.

Dinner last night was terrible. Food Took forever to come and when it did come my lobster tail was raw (literally raw you could see it easily) and the2 filet mignon steaks that we were charged $96. 22 steaks were not cooked properly.

They took the two meals off the check and 2-3 drinks, but we still had to pay $209.60 plus the tip. They should have comped us the dinner especially since we waited over an hour for our food.

Also, screaming kids in bar, and no one spoke to them.

What a terrible Father's day dinner.

The food was excellent and the service was great. Sasha was our server and she was very friendly and sweet. We ordered the sliced filet mignon and bone in ribeye both cooked perfectly at medium rare. Mushrooms and creamed spinach on the side were delicious. We had the tuna tartare and I often order this when it’s available at many restaurants as an appetizer but here, I’ll decide against it in the future. They put dollops of sriracha as I guess as a dip/ garnish and bc its the same color as the tuna, we had blasts of spicy in some bites. It was quite unpleasant. Dessert was decadent as we finished our meal with the brûlée cheesecake. It was perfect!!!

Food was amazing but dress code needs to be more strictly enforced as it used to be. Noticed lots of people in “booty shorts”, inappropriate cleavages etc which took away from the elegance and classy feel.

Capital Grille knows how to treat its diners. It is why we always come back. It is why we celebrated our anniversary there. The waiters and the managers always put a personal touch on each meal.

As for the food, of all the steakhouses in the area we have been to, Capital Grille never disappoints. They are the ones setting the bar for us. The lobster bisque actually had chunks of lobster in it. The creamed spinach is always fantastic. The steaks are always cooked to perfection.
