Having enjoyed Capitol grille in phoenix thought we would try this for lunch. I think they did not expect customers. Understaffed. Food overlooked. No service. Can't recommend

We had the small private dining room to celebrate a milestone family birthday. Overall, the dinner was disappointing. Some food was fantastic - prosciutto wrapped mozzarella, some was really bad - chopped salad. The service bordered on 'hovering'. The room's ambience was Old World, nice. Valet parking for free - nice. But, bottom line - a return visit? Not likely.... More

Great food - the steak is delicious. The lunch service was quite slow and not particularly good as the waiter was not very friendly or helpful. The quality meal made me give this four stars but the service was definitely a three at best. Overall, not a bad choice but there are definitely better options in this price point.

This is our 6th visit to Capital Grille. We just love the service and the food. Some international friends were visiting and we wanted them to experience the best. Our server was attentive, informative and professional. He helped us pick out the best entrees and sides, giving us some great recommendations. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, yet private.

Three of us had dinner at the Capital Grille while at a conference in Seattle. We decided to go there at the last minute and were able to get in. Given that most of the really good restaurants in Seattle tend to be fully booked before they open their doors at night, I was not sure what to expect at... More

This restaurant is like all other Capital Grills. The food is consistently good. I like the salads and the steaks. It is conveniently located in the center of town. Is great for a business lunch and is a very large restaurant.

We decided on a light dinner across the street from our hotel and it turned out to be an excellent experience beginning with our waiter. He brought us one starter after another all of which were excellent.

This restaurant is very popular and has a nice environment, but our food was average at best for our $140 tab without drinks. My husbands Filet was dry and over cooked My Halibut was good but came with roasted potatoes the size of small marbles. The Cesar salad was good, but not worth the price. Eat somewhere else. The Yardhouseis... More

We had reservations at another restaurant, but we had almost an hour to kill. So we went here for the happy hour. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating. We order drinks and food. Their crafted cocktails are wonderful. We had the calamari which didn't come with a sauce, but didn't need one. There were very flavorful and yummy. We asked... More

We had a party of seven and a half (baby) for an early Sunday dinner of family and friends. Service is nearly impeccable...Julie was attentive but not overwhelming. After drinks and appetizers the wait to entrees seemed endless, but the stoli dolies(pineapple infused martins) made it bearable and we hadn't seen our friends in several years. The smoked salmon and... More
