Description: The train may have left the station, but you don't have to miss out on the most extraordinary steak around. Join us in Union Station for dry aged steak that The Providence Journal lauds as having, “only gotten better with time.” We’re just one block away from the RI Convention Center and Dunkin’ Donuts Center. Conveniently, we’re also just the spot Rhode Island Monthly says is “Best Restaurant to Impress.”

Visited for our Anniversary and was able to sit outside. Couldn’t get a reservation the night before as it was a water fire night! So ended up being a beautiful peaceful relaxing dinner on a Sunday night! Dave was our waiter and he was excellent! He made great suggestions for dinner and drinks! The Bohemian is now one if my favorite drinks! We both also had soup (french onion and clam chowder) and steaks! They were cooked to perfection! Sides were potatoes au gratin and Brussel sprouts. They were very good but not as good as the steaks (bone in Kona and Porcini bone in ribeye)! French onion was better than the clam chowder! Outside seating was perfect on a beautiful night!! I didn’t give 5 stars as the cast iron garlic shrimp was not good! We sent it back after one bite. It was overcooked and bland however they quickly replaced it with our soups which were good! The manager also came out and apologized. Dave also brought out a piece of cake with a candle and 2 glasses of champagne! Nice touch and most appreciated! This is not an inexpensive meal however we are really happy we splurged and celebrated here! Thank you to the beautiful hostess (I think her name was Sophie) who helped us to choose to sit outside, she was a sweetheart!! Next time hoping for 5 stars and perfect shrimp! Oh forgot to mention the amazing bread variety and butter, yummmmm! Thanks Capital Grille for helping us celebrating and making it a wonderful anniversary!!

The location is great. Plenty of outdoor seating overlooking the canal with Gondolas going by. The service and food was very good.

Friendly bartenders, exceptional wine list (thanks to Mark), the food is always fresh and a great location. This is how a steakhouse should operate.

I recently visited here for dinner with my husband and two other couples. It is a beautiful restaurant in a great location. There was a short wait for us to sit down, even though we had reservations. Once seated, it took a while for us to be greeted. Our server wasn't very interested and didn't check on us outside of us placing our various orders (wine, apps, dinner, dessert). The wine list was great with a broad range of selections. The food was great.
