Steak you can cut with a fork.......

This was the best Filet I have had in forever! We had a party of 8 and every plate looked yummy! Everyone raved. It is a bit spendy, so don't go there if you are on a budget. Everything is also a la carte, so it adds up fast. Wine is $23 per glass just to give you an idea.... read more

We all know - it's a chain. It's consistently good in all locations and I've been to a few around the US. This location is also solid in food, decor, service and what you expect.

We went there for my husbands birthday, everything was excellent - the service, the food and the extra special birthday surprises. Only two tiny issues - they forgot my mushrooms so I had to wait for them and we were seated next to two doors that didn't seal tightly so a cool breeze was blowing on us constantly. They offered...

Always greeted as if they have been waiting for me. The serving staff is consistant and you can almost always get the waiter you ask for. Everything is great. The bearnaise sauce, scalloped potatoes and cream spinach, is a MUST with every meal.

We popped in to the Capital Grille on the most challenging of all nights - New Year's Eve! We understood they had over 1000 reservations but we still had faith. We sat in the bar area, and had an absolutely amazing experience. The live piano entertainment created a great environment, the bartender created custom cocktails for us. We dined on... More

Stopped here for lunch one afternoon and were the only ones at the bar. Service was impeccable, food was excellent, drinks were perfect - and this experience is like other Capital Grille's we have visited.

If you're hankering for a delicious steak 'experience ' don't hesitate to dine at the Capital Grille. Four of us had a wonderful dinner and everything went right - and I can usually find something to complain about👹. This is one of the few places where I felt the money equalled the value. I won't go into what we ordered... More

A lot of restaurants come and go in Scottsdale and we ate at the bar and had an upscale experience with still terrific food. The Sirloin Medallion Sliders are excellent, the burger, and the crab/lobster sliders. If you go, make sure you have the flagship item of French Onion Soup. It is so amazing. The wait staff were attentive to... More

My wife and I had a delicious meal at the Capital Grille. I started with the very delicious onion soup. My wife had the seared Tuna with ginger rice and said it was great. She also loved her roasted cauliflower. I had the bone in ribeye and was really pleased! It was cooked to perfection, tasted great and almost melted... More
