No Happy Hour Here

My husband and I have dined here many times for special occasions and always enjoy both the food and ambiance.

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

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
