Love this place time and time again

One of my favorite places in Seattle. The service is always top notch. Wine list is plentiful. Steak and Seafood dishes are always wonderful. Worth a stop.

Capital Grills across the country offer an overall nice experience. I think this one in Seattle may be my favorite. Service was outstanding from Leigh Ann. So kind and engaging. Thanks, Leigh Ann. I was there for lunch and needed to work through lunch, make some calls, etc. and Leigh Ann was kind and accommodating. Food was excellent and a... More

Our last fe hours before flying home, and oh did we go home happy . Steak to die for and calamari that melts in your mouth, helped along with the most amazing wine. Great end to a fabulous trip

This place continues to be a class act. Great steaks and seafood. The service is superb, friendly and efficient. They always get us to the play at the 5th Avenue on time. This time my wife had a delicious and big piece of salmon. I had the seared scallops that were great.

Excellent variety of cocktails and small plate appetizers. We had the lobster and crab sliders, prawns and cheese burger sliders. All were delicious and only 8 a pop. The house wine pour for $8 was very good, not the usual crap you get for house wines. Solid, clubby upscale atmosphere and would go back in a heart beat.

We recently had dinner here to celebrate my retirement with my wife and a close friend. Food was excellent - but even more impressive was the service. They go all out for service. When we made the reservation they asked if this was for any ocassion and we told them my retirement. They acknowledged it all night long. Table decorated... More

I think the Capital Grill has one of the best steaks in Seattle. Everything is ala cart and perfectly prepared. While the restaurant was very busy, we never felt hurried or rushed in any way. In a word, this place is luxury. Be prepared, a modest bottle of wine and dinner for two will run you $250-300 easy. Have to... More

We celebrated my 40th birthday here and they were great! We were able to reserve the private dining room. It took awhile for us to be seated, but once we were, the servers were attentive and the food was great! My steak was a bit overcooked along with another friend of ours but all in all, it was a very... More
