We went to dinner last night at The Capital Grille in Scottsdale. I have been there before, but this was, without question, the best meal that we had ever had there. The shrimp cocktail was perfect as was the grilled salmon and the french fries. Service was very good. Everything was really first rate. Very nicely done.

We selected The Capital Grill from TripAdvisor and we knew we were in for a treat as it had great reviews. The welcome was excellent and our waiter Chris was polite and welcoming. We had the oysters to start and I had the bone in fillet for main. My wife had the fillet. The oysters were shucked correctly something you... More

We dined at Capital Grill on a very busy Thursday evening. We were greeted at the door and again by the Hostess. Everyone we met on the way to our table spoke to us or greeted us. I cannot brag enough about the entire staff and their attention to detail. ( the only miss was not bringing us a warm... More

This establishment is probably for those who want to be seen as high rollers. The food was comparable to other places that charge half as much. Our first waiter seemed totally full of himself as he explained the dry-aged process (big deal). Then he disappeared for at least a half hour before taking our order. He never did come to... More

The 4.5 overall star rating (of 5) is well-deserved. We spent the evening at Capital Grille with friends for our anniversary, following an afternoon in Old Scottsdale, so we needed to change clothes (Capital Grille is Nice Casual....we were much more casual). Without batting an eye, the receptionist showed us to their (good sized) restrooms to facilitate our change. When... More

I ate at Capital Grille for the first time on my trip to Scottsdale in February of 2015. It reminded me a lot of other nice high end steak places. Our waiter was fantastic, as he was very knowledgeable and helped us make our choices. I had the filet and the plain mashed potatoes. I liked the steak but wished... More

I had an amazing scallop dish with risotto and spring peas. Scallops were seared perfectly and the risotto had a wonderful flavor profile. Most of the rest of the group had the seabass and it as fantastic as well. Service awesome!

I have been here a few times and always have a good dinner but somehow I tend to forget about it. The atmosphere is a bit dark and it draws a more mature croud however the steaks are great. The sides are pretty standard and the wine list is sufficient for all price ranges.

Great restaurant, with indoor and lots of outdoor seating. Great atmosphere inside, not too loud. Outdoor seating is more pleasant than one would expect given the restaurant is located in a strip mall, close to several large office buildings. Nice gas heaters outside make it comfortable even in a chilly evening. Service was superb, with very professional, seasoned waitpeople. Great... More
