A classic high end steak house with excellent service. Food and beverage are all excellent. Lunches are pretty reasonable for the quality.

We had dined here before, it was late, we had been shopping and were hungry, so dropped in for a quick meal. We were armed with bags of shopping so were seated in the bar area outside the main dining room. The waiter, Greg, brought us menus, then promptly forgot about us. We waited... Eventually he came and asked if... More

This was our second time attending their "Generous Pour" wine launching event at Capital Grille. We have enjoyed totally getting the opportunity to try the great wines paired with wonderful appetizers offered. Eight wines (three whites/five reds) were offered, the best was a 2005 Cabernet Sav. that had a beautiful "chocolate" color and deep rich flavors. The appetizers paired nicely... More

While shopping at South Coast Plaza, we decided to have a nice lunch and as we gave our name to the host, I whispered to my husband that this could be my birthday lunch (we were unable to celebrate on my actual birthday two days before). When we were seated, we found the table adorned with sparkly table confetti, a... More

Like so many restaurants in The OC, the Capital Grill seems to have decided to spend most of its money on decor, not so much on quality of kitchen staff. The place is nice to look at. The food is eminently forgettable. I've been there a few times with business associates. I would never go there voluntarily.

At a last moments notice, we called and were able to get our favorite table to celebrate a special birthday. The table was sprinkled with confetti and a birthday card was waiting for our granddaughter. That made it very special for her. The food is always good! Everything is well presented, and they are very accommodating,should you have special requests.... More

Always excellent food, superb atmosphere, and attentive service. Good for well-behaved, older kids. Superb cocktails. Truffle French fries are to die for... Perfectly cooked steaks, amazing seafood salad. Fun desserts and adorable birthday surprise treats.
