My husband and I ate there this past April as it was our last night in Phoenix and as usual The Capital Grille never fails to deliver a wonderful, consistent meal with great service. I had a special that evening of filet mignon and Alaska king crab legs and my husband had his favorite the porterhouse. Of course, we have... More

Did a “classic" salad, steak, potato meal. And it was as good as it gets. Salads were cold, crisp and perfectly dressed. We both had the filet, served a precisely proper medium-rare. The cut was flawless and tender; the flavor outstanding. My companion and I both agreed that this was probably the best steak we’ve had in the Phoenix area,... More

We keep coming back to the Capital Grille for the steaks and the service. While there are other local "high end" steakhouses in the area, we have never quite been satisfied with the level of quality that the competitors have provided. We had our usual filets. Services was excellent, so five dots. The only thing out of the ordinary was... More

Ordered from their plates menu, which means generally in and out in 45 minutes. Starts with a salad choice and a entree. My guest had the sirloin sliders and I had the sirloin hash. This was NOT like a breakfast hash, but large chunks of sirloin with a few pieces of peppers, onions and potatoes. Service was 100% spot on.... More

Visited The Capital Grille for our anniversary. The hostess asked if we were celebrating anything special and she could tell by our hesitation that we were uncomfortable divulging the fact that it was our anniversary but we told her any way. She came back to our table and decorated it with heart confetti and presented us with a card. Very... More

We had not been to any Capital Grille in a few years...the last experience was in Indianapolis and the service was awful and the value too low. We live quite close to this location and decided to give it a try. Are we ever glad we did. We lucked out and ended up being served by Terry...who is one the... More

I've rarely been 100% wowed by a restaurant. But Monday night, TCG rendered me nearly speechless. I was greeted by the Valet, Luis. Very kind and friendly. Next the door was held open by Alicia as we were walked up to the doors. Katie welcomed us at the Host stand and Alicia showed us to our table. Normally, I don't... More
