Had a great dinner at Capital Grill in Costa Mesa California. Anyone wanting a great steak, service and wine menu, its a hit. Had the Porcini Rubbed Delmonico, excellent. My wife had The Filet Oscar Style as always great too. Twice Baked potatoes for a side along with Roasted Brussel Sprouts, great. Get some Potato Leek soup as a starter.... More

I had dinner at the Capital Grille in Costa Mesa last night. The meat was prepared to perfection, thanks to the expertise of our server, Amy, who accommodated our parties preferences and had the chef prepare portions of a shared dishes to meet our tastes. I have to say, I've never experienced that level of service before. The Parmesan truffle... More

Oysters - superb. Lobster bisque - best I've had (chunks of lobster meat) and the waiter poured the sherry in the bisque table side. Chilean sea bass - nice sized piece with subtle Asian broth; very good. Mashed potatoes - best I've had at steakhouse. Red potato skin shreds and cream made it decadent. Asparagus - perfectly cooked with subtle... More

I've been to this location numerous times for both dinner and dinner & drinks. (I only sit at the bar.) The food never disappoints nor does the service. I like their martinis!

This was my first visit to a Capital Grille, and it didn't disappoint. My coworker recommended the restaurant as he had visited other locations and knew it would be the perfect place for a celebratory dinner. As soon as I walked up to the hostess' podium, I knew I was in for a special evening. Every staff member is polite... More

OMG the food there is excellent. Can't wait to go back. They have a Lobster Macroni and cheese dish to die for. I'm craving again just thinking about it.

All 3 meals have been with valued business partners in the US and we have always come back smiling. If I have to do steaks in the US - this chain of restaurants ill be in my... More

A beautiful place to have dinner or drinks. hye have an extensive wine offering. Their specialty is aged steaks but offer a great selection of seafood entrees. The list of appetizers includes steak tartare, pan-fried calamari, lobster and dungeness crab cakes, and smoked salmon. Tonight south african lobster was highlighted which had a sweet taste different than a Maine lobster.... More

I've been to other Capital Grilles and this one is no different. I highly recommend it. The location was a little odd as it's attached to a mall, and it's a very big mall so I'm glad I was with someone who knew exactly where to go. However, once you step inside, it's just as you expect. Warm, attentive service... More
