Having a birthday on Valentine's Day puts a lot of pressure on a husband, but bringing me to Capital Grille was one of the wisest & most romantic public afternoons we've mad in awhile. Dining upstairs, cocooned in U-shaped booth, we were showered with superb service by a waitress who had served us previously. Never intrusive, but quick with suggestions,... More

This steakhouse is located at the upscale South Coast Plaza Mall which is the uber shopping mall in SoCal, and way better than Rodeo Drive. Capital Grille has a fantastic menu, both lunch and dinner menu. Wine lists have many excellent and reasonably priced options. Steaks are quality beef, prepared perfectly, and excellent side dishes offered. I don't often like... More

This was our first visit to this location and service and food was what we expected. Capital Grille knows how to train their staff so that when the expectations are high the bar is met!Our waiter was attentive without being intrusive. The steak my husband ordered was done just to his liking as was my steak salad. The appetizers that... More

Got a reservation but not til 815pm. This was worth the wait. We did not get food til after 9 but it was GREAT. Pete Veete was our server. I think he was annoyed at my not ordering food (I know my family they over order and there is enough for me) but he seemed better when I ordered wine.... More

We had a wonderful time and a delicious meal at The Capital Grille. Originally we were going because of Restaurant Week, but ended up ordering some of their regular deals on their lunch menu. My meal started with a cup of lobster bisque. It one of the best that I ever had. The seared scallops with sweet corn risotto were... More

Located on the perimeter of a mall. Adjacent free parking with valet option most nights. Dark interior with savvy waiters. Good steaks for a fair price considering the location and service.

Everything was very good. The food, service, ambience were top notch. Personally I prefer Seasons 52. Owned by the same folks, I am more comfortable at Seasons 52. You need to try for yourself. They are both very good.

Two couples celebrating the husbands birthdays and took advantage of their "generous pour" they are doing over the summer. We all got to have seven various white and red wines throughout our meal experience and it was wonderful. We tried calimari appetizer and lobster/crab cakes, lobster bisque, the lamb chops, the filet oscar with crab, and their version of Kobi... More
