We have dined at Capital Grille in Dallas and in Costa Messa. The food has always been spectacular and the service most professional. 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

My wife and I called and got reservations on Friday night, by calling just two hours in advance! The steaks are all generally good and cost around $45-50 each. The free bread is also good quality and the porterhouse with balsamic vinegar is a very flavourful steak. With appetizers, drink, steaks, and sides for each of us the meal rounded... More

Wanted to find out if the Capital grill deserved its' rating. The atmosphere and service were very good. The staff was very pleasant and attentive. The food - Steak, Fish and sides that we ordered were excellent. We will return in the future. Will also consider stopping at the bar for a bite if we are in the area.

The food is great, the service is excellent - what more can you ask for? Probably the best restaurant inside the South Coast Plaza, the Capital Grille is definitely worth a visit, although it's not cheap.

So if you love aged steak this is a great choice. Seafood is also the best I've had in the OC. Fried calamari was a great starter and it just got better from there. Our server, Luis was attentive and knowledgeable and immediately made us feel welcome. A manager came by to check on us making sure everything was going... More

We received a $50 off voucher in the mail, so we figured we'd give it a try. I've been to other locations and thought the food was very good. I'll give high marks to our server, but the rest was fairly disappointing. Hits: Prosciutto wrapped Mozzarella - excellent app Clam chowder soup - big fan! Lobster - wife said it... More

My husband and I went to Capital Grille for my birthday. From start to finish it was a lovely experience. The table was decorated with confetti and the waiter had a nice birthday card on the table. He explained the special and was very knowledgable as to the items on the menu. Our steak and lobster tail were delicious, cooked... More
