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

Upon arrival and seeing the beautiful dark walls and wine lockers, one would assume that you are visiting a pretentious restaurant. I couldn't be more wrong. Sounds of Chet Baker in the background and seeing the nicely dressed waiters confirms that this restaurant is special. Started off with delicious oysters. Wife orders the Sea Bass, which she wanted to pick... More

Our recent visit to Capital Grille, Scottsdale was stellar. We couldn't imagine how our experience might have been bettered. First off, upon arrival, we requested an outside table, which was cheerfully provided. Our server, Jill, was attentive, knowledgeable and humorous, We felt very well taken care of. Starters were delicious and quickly served: Clam Chowder and Tomato, Mozzarella, Basil Salad.... More
