One of the best!

We went on a Sunday evening, just my wife and I. I can honestly say this is one of the best eating experiences we have ever had. Granted, it was slow as there were very few people in the restaurant that night, but nonetheless we had fantastic service and wonderful food. Our server Joe was the best... read more

One of our favorites in Scottsdale for steaks. We think the atmosphere is more conducive to conversation than the Mastros chain, and slightly more upscale and unique than the Mortons or Ruths Chris. The various steak rubs and sauces are more interesting and numerous than most other steak houses. The sides are on par with others. Wine list and options... More

Enjoyed lunch here recently and was happy to see some of my favorites on the menu: french onion soup and a crab louis salad. The King Crab was super fresh and the soup delicious as well. Friendly, knowledgeable waiter and manager. My mother had a rib eye sandwich, meat quality was excellent. If you order rare at this restaurant, your... More

The staff was friendly, the service was superb and the steaks and side dishes are always delicious. Nice for a night out for a steak dinner but a little pricey for a family.

Went to the Capital Grille this evening to celebrate our friends 60th anniversary. We had a lovely dinner, The food and service were above reproach. We were also able to talk with one another which is more than I can say for some other Scottsdale restaurants. We had a lovely waitress by the name of Janet Finden who took care... More

My husband and I have dined here many times for special occasions and always enjoy both the food and ambiance. We were out one evening and decided to stop in for a drink and some light fare, hoping there would be some type of happy hour. Well, we found out there is no happy hour whatsoever -- full price all... More

The one in Phoenix was closed so we went to this one. Were not disappointed. Great service and great food as expected. Their steaks are excellent and as described by their staff. We were there during a slow period so we go extra attention and it was great. I always love Capital Grille.

As usual the Capital Grille delivered excellent steak, excellent wine choices and superb service. This is our first time eating at the Scottsdale location, but we have been to locations in Las Vegas, Chicago, Minneapolis, Orlando and Atlanta. All locations are equally good and consistent and the Scottsdale Capital Grille did not disappoint. We stopped in on a Thursday at... More
