"I am not a steak-house guy. Never have been. So I generally do not review (nor, go that often) to these type of places. I live in the Boston burbs, so if I am not in the city and I have a need to visit a steak house, we dine at the Chestnut Hill Capital Grille. I can't tell you if this steak is better than the other usual suspects. Suffice to say it is very good. I like this location because it is smaller than the norm; has a homey-type feel about it, I've been to it 3x in the past 1/2 year. The most recent visit was only my wife and I, for the first time, at their bar. We enjoyed that experience very much; perhaps better than in the dining room. We shared an app (calamari, meh), a salad (tasty) and I had the burger, she had sirloin sliders. The drinks were great! Wine was fine! I think this is where, for me, this place (and, others like it) belong: at the bar, casually. Like I said, I am not a steak house guy.
You know the drill: dinner for 4 is about $500.00, or, for many, much more. When you are in the mood to splurge and you feel it needs to be beef (yes, they have other stuff) than this (type) place will do just fine."

"I have been a fan since the restaurant opened in a much smaller venue in So Norwood too many years ago!. Menu highlights: lamb chops (one of the best values in Greater Boston), Mjadra, Holumi appetizer, Kibee Naya (always fresh, Fri & Sat only), cabbage rolls. The desserts are kind of one-note, but very tasty. I am not a fan of their tomato-sauce dishes, although many might find them comfort foodish. The room is kind of pretentious, and large. It deflects sound well, it isn't noisy....until the belly dancing which starts around 8 pm on Fri & Sat. If that's your thing, enjoy. If not, go early. But, GO! This is one of the better Lebanese places in all of Massachusetts. The wine list has many Lebanese selections to try for those looking for that similar wine/food regionality."
