The Capital Grille is by far one of the best steak houses in Greater Hartford. Service is always spot on and food delicious! It's pricey, but between the food and the service, you get what you pay for. A must go!

Located in the newly invigorated waterfront section of Hartford Connecticut, the grand building with the formal entrance had me at hello. Just its location, in a town which needs to reinvent itself and find reasons for people to come visit, made me want to love...More

Not every item came out of the kitchen as ordered so keep an eye on that -- it and the pumpkin spice candle assaulting my senses as I entered are the only reasons I knocked my rating down a star. Everything was delicious, regardless. The...More
