The night started out great with the server who was extremely helpful and knowledgable. The ballet parking was great to walk in with my family instead of drop off and park. The lobster Mac n cheese was out if this world, we always have this and we are never disappointed. Main course and sides were fantastic and it got better with the desserts. I love the restaurant for the great service and food. This is a 5 across the board. The manager Paul was extremely friendly and top notch.

I have hosted a small group at this location annually for the past 6 years, and this year was no different. Both the quality of food and service provided to our group were excellent. My only issue is that they no longer carry my favorite Banfi Brunello on the wine list. That said, the managing partner told me to call ahead next year, ask them to have it on hand for our party, and it would be waiting when we arrive. Now, that is service!!

Undoubtedly my favorite special occasion restaurant. The food is exquisite (try the lobster Mac and cheese as a side). The staff is friendly and professional. I was there for my 20th wedding anniversary. The table had rose petals on it and we received complimentary champagne to start with for a toast. We also received a complimentary dessert that had "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate on the plate. Our special celebration was made even more special by dining here!

We have dined at the Capital Grill in Lombard and in many other cities before, this time we were disappointed. The shrimp cocktail appetizer was good but the prosciutto wrapped mozarella with vine ripe tomatoes was excessively salty.The porterhouse was perfectly cooked and delicious but the steak au poivre with courvoisier cream was a complete fiasco. The meat had an exaggeratedly thick layer of very large black peppercorns on both sides which made it inedible after a few mouthfulls despite scraping as many of them off as possible, the cream sauce was delicious This steak was a disaster and just slicing it left large peppercorns all over the table when we had finished. The grilled asparagus with lemon oil was perfect but the oscar-style roast potatoes had some pieces of fish inserted into it and not crabmeat and frankly was a disgusting mish-mash which we did not eat. Service was excellent and attentive, the wine list excellent and the venue is upscale and expensive. We shall return but will make different choices next time.

We went for our anniversary, they had the table laid out with roses which was very nice. The service was exceptional. The steaks we had were excellent as for the sides we had. We didn't order a dessert but they brought one out for our anniversary for us to share. On the plate it said Happy Anniversary. They also took a photo for us to keep. That was a great touch. The only issue we had was we were seated by a private room by the entrance door. So we constantly had the other servers for the party open and close the door. So, next time we would definitely not sit there.
