    Boring typical mediocre uber-expensive American steakhouse. You should rather do The Capital Grille or Mooo...

    I had my wife and son here and I have to say the rib eye steak was the best I have ever eaten. My son and I split the steak and swordfish with the hash browns. Oh my god!

    Conventional wisdom suggests avoiding chicken dishes at steakhouses, but the Brick Pressed Chicken here is fantastic. The Valrhona Chocolate Layer Cake is also obscenely delicious.

    I've has steaks across the country, but the Kobe Cap steak was one of, maybe the best steak I've ever had.

    Very expensive wine, and wonderful service. The grilled cheese is absolutely amaZing.

    Emily Baer · September 9, 2014

    Oysters, beef in general, tatter tuds (truffle)

    Jose Tamayo · August 30, 2014
  • Francisco A.

    Broad wine list, but too expensive. Best oysters I've ever had! The 100 days dry aged ribeye is a must in this restaurant!

    Great service but not out of this world food. Capitol Grill is better

    Scott Zwick · August 17, 2014
  • Kathy M.

    Great steak, but come here for the outstanding wine list and wine service.

    Kathy M · August 8, 2014

    Want to impress some hungry carnivores? Take them to this topnotch steakhouse for dry-aged sirloin. Loud and masculine, it offers some of the best cuts in town. Read more · August 4, 2014

    Menu prides itself on great seafood. While you might be tempted to make a meal of the truffled tater tots, it'd mean missing the tender 100 Day Aged Ribeye. Read more

    One of the greatest restaurant in Boston love the salmon.

    Diana Glam · July 7, 2014
  • Christopher M.

    Ambience was fantastic! Lots of mahogany, snooty suits and uniqueness. However, while the food was great, service was below par for an expensive steakhouse. Try the lamb chops or grass-fed filet.

    Christopher Michael · June 10, 2014
  • Migz C.

    Dry aged rib eye is beyond delicious

    Migz C. · May 23, 2014

    Excellent service, excellent food. Oysters, New England clam chowder, 100-day aged ribeye, English peas ... all were liked by our crowd. 2nd time here and will be back.

    Cannot say enough good things about Grill 23 & Bar. Ask for Daniel.

    (Best of Boston 2013-STEAK HOUSE) Improper Bostonian says, "The grande dame of steal houses turns 30 this year, but she hardly feels over-the-hill. Classic service..."

    There are better options like Abe & Louis

    Worst "high end" steak house I've ever been to. 1st bone-in ribeye comes doubly over cooked, then super under cooked. I'm on a date & at that point mgmt offers more food and I'm like why. Never again

    Stephanie Adrienne · December 8, 2013

    Devra First recommends: Crab cake, 100-day aged rib eye, Kobe cap steak, Maine lobster, mac and cheese, coconut cake (a towering slice, with moist, fragrant, almost macaroon-like layers) Read more · November 8, 2013

    Great Signature dishes! Order the 100 day aged rib eye:)

    The Kobe beef is probably the best steak i ever had. Forget the ribeye and try the Kobe beef! although quiet expensive it is definetely worth the price (62$)...

    100 day aged steak beats any nyc steakhouse

    Fantastic service. Elegant interior. Awesome! Order the 100 day aged ribeye.

    Robert Casper · August 15, 2012
  • Katherin S.

    I believe the cocktails here to be lethal. Get a steak - medium rare - and the truffle tots. Oh, and put your fancy pants on.

    Katherin Son · July 6, 2012
  • Michael T.

    Best steak in the city, and among the best seafood. Former by a significant margin.

    Michael Troiano · June 10, 2012

    The chips at the bar are not to be missed.

    Pretty bland chowder!! Dissapointed!

    The Kobe Cap steak is by far the best steak I've ever had.

    Chris Jackson · December 28, 2011
  • BestOf

    Steak lovers extol the rib-eye for the deep marbling and for the cap (or deckle), a lobe of muscle so succulent that it often gets saved for the last bites. Read more
