You can't go wrong at the Capital Grille on Boylston St. Food is exceptional and the atmosphere great. But service is phenomenal. Brad Bennett is a great server and I urge readers to ask for him. You won't be disappointed.

Long week, in town for part of the weekend and really needed a decent meal to take back to my hotel and chill.

2 glasses of a lovely Willamette Valley pinot whilst waiting, veal tomahawk with mashed potatoes and green beans to eat. Only 3 minutes from restaurant to room and food was hot and fresh on opening.

Beautifully tender veal, perfectly medium rare. Mash creamy and unctuous, green beans al dente. What more does a man need?!

$150 for the pleasure with no starter and no dessert, however for the quality I’ll bank it every time. Very pleased.

Was in town for a conference and had the mushroom crusted ribeye. Was one of the best steaks I have ever had. Had no problem paying a premium for the experience. It was THAT good.

I was here on business and we chose the Capital Grill because of positive experiences in other cities and we were not disappointed.
We split the lettuce wedge and it was plenty for 2 people. My filet was tender and cooked perfectly. My business associate asked for med rare plus and it was a bit undercooked so he sent it back. When they returned with it cooked the way he liked it they brought another portion of each appetizer so we would have hot ones! Never had that done before.
We loved the truffle fries and they stayed hot for a very long time. The brussel sprouts were very good but you have to enjoy soy since that flavor was strong.
The wine is pricey with very few quality bottles under $100.
Dessert was a creamy sorbet with fresh berries - a perfect end to the meal.
Overall a great meal and excellent service and it is what you should expect at a high end restaurant.
