Food was delicious. Waiter was prompt and awesome. Reno being done on the outside, so it wasn’t that cute...but that in no way affected the meal. Plenty of parking. Fast service. Great drinks.

Have never had a bad meal here in 15+ years. Steaks always perfect, sides outstanding, and great wine and cocktail choices. Service consistently superb. Lots of steakhouse choices in the Lombard/Oak Brook area but Capital Grille consistently the best.

The swordfish, butternut squash soup, dessert, and service are 5 stars. Fish was fresh. High quality food. It's a great restaurant to celebrate a special occasion. They made me feel special. The finishing touch was the picture that our server took and gave it to us in a nice picture holder.

Celebrrting a birthday, we enjoyed the garlic shrimp appetizer, salmon, a bone-in rib eye and potatoes au gratin. Each of these dishes was cooked to perfection and tasted great. Service was friendly and attentive. A complimentary desert, complete with birthday candle, was provided and appreciated at no additional cost. Our only complaint may be that the wine servings were less than generous, given the price point of the wines.

I noted in my Open Table reservation that it was our 20th anniversary. Capital Grille really took care of us! They provided a special table (half booth) with a card from the GM and rose petals on the table! Our server, Kara H was incredible! She made us feel so special and really make us want to come back! I entertain clients for business a lot, but Kara is up there in my top 10 service experiences! They even gave us a free dessert, a double-chocolate-truffle lava cake that was unbelievable! Thank you CG! Please reward Kara as she is a standout!

Extraordinarily good food with wonderful service. They accommodated us in a backroom area which balanced two contradictory requests--a quiet table for conversation and yet with small children. In a white table cloth high-end restaurant the wait staff handled children with surprising ease (table location helped). The prices are high, justified by the quality of the food.

My food was great but wife’s bone in filet was dry and a bit over cooked. When sent back and new bone in filet came out the same and wife was too embarrassed to send back again, took a couple of bites had it wrapped and left. Our server Gina was absolutely amazing and pin pointed great suggestions we loved.

This is definitely my favorite special occasion restaurant. Once again it did not disappoint. The staff is attentive without being smothering in anyway. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about some wine selections which were right on. The only thing I have noticed that is different is the calories on the menu! I would not say I’m a calorie counter but on a special evening like this it just takes away from the ambience.Perhaps guess could be offered menus with or without the calories. Who wants to count those on a night of indulgence exclamation

Outstanding food and service. Deshon took care of us and was outstanding! We asked for recommendations on our dinner and he was spot on with the items he suggested. I had the rack of lamb and my husband had the 22oz ribeye. Both were cooked to perfection and very good. All the food is excellent! We celebrated a birthday and our anniversary and when we arrived we had rose petals on the table. Very nice surprise for us. Deshon treated us to a desert of the cheesecake and the chocolate cake. Excellent. Will definitely be back at Capital grille.

Excellent calamari(the best ever)-I always order it when I come here! Followed this with beef tenderloins topped with butter poached lobster tails that were just delicious!!! The chardonnay selection by the glass was very good & we ordered a lovely bottle of pinot noir. We were celebrating a birthday & the restaurant gave us a sampler of their delicious flourless chocolate espresso cake(my favorite!) and creme brûlée cheesecake-also amazing. We will be returning for my birthday in a couple of weeks.
We also just went to the Wagyu and Wine in the bar area last week & it was delicious. They had great cabernets by the glass & the burgers were delicious. I got truffle fries with my burger even though they came with parmesan fries. I couldn't resist! The truffle did not overwhelm the wagyu!! There was no problem with the substitution. I think we will do it again before it is gone in November!
5++++++ all the way around.
Cudos to Paul , the GM . He does a magnificent job!

after a couple of years, we thought we'd come back to Capital Gril for a birthday celebration.
We had a good time, and even thought why we never came back.
the food , ambiance and our the service was outstanding.
with a minor issue.... i ordered Lamb Chops, and when the person who brought the food to our table,
i was surprised that the portion was a lot... as always i love my Lamb Chops w Mint jelly,
so i asked for mint jelly on the side, the person said they are out of Mint Jelly, cuz the way they prepared the Lamb CHops do not require Mint Jelly.
Halfway thru my food, we asked our server to check for Mint Jelly, and YES, she came back with Mint Jelly.
