Made reservation for lunch break during the holiday shopping. Glad we did, the place was packed. Service is very very good, as our waitress is professional in ensuring our bread basket was filled and water glass was never empty despite the crowd. Food is good BUT loaded with butter and richness. If you are into rich food, this is the... More

We dined at Capital Grill for Christmas Eve. They had a full house and accommodated quite a few families, who decided to dine out for the special night. They are also very good with kids, unlike many other steak houses. I think I like Capital Grill the best when it comes to a steak house. Most steak houses have the... More

Food was very good. Serivice almost perfect, asked for dark bread instead of variety bread that they gave us in the basket but took a little while( probably forgot). Everything else was good!

We wanted to treat my son & his wife to a special night out for their anniversary. This place did not disappoint. The moment we sat down we were greeted with champagne for the occasion. Let the celebration begin! Our server, Ibere when I mentioned we had two bottles of wine immediately took care of decanting them for us and... More

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
