Service excellent. Steak prepared perfect. Wine selection extensive. Waiter paired my wine with the selection of meat. Was not rushed even it was a busy lunch crowd.

First, they use open table for reservations, which was a bonus. I started in the bar area and was able to take advantage of their happy hour. The shrimp cocktail was incredible--huge shrimp, great cocktail sauce Their happy hour prices were great--both drinks and food. The dirty martini had just the right amount of olive juice and vodka. The service... More

The Steak was excellent, the Service was outstanding and the ambient was beautiful. If I may say 1 thing it is that I thought that the lighting was too dark.

Birthdays, Anniversaries, Date Night. Capital Grille is always great. Love the Seattle location, have dined at this location 3 times. Service is excellent, has ruined me for any other place touting service. I always review this restaurant asking them to keep up the great level of service, their commitment to hiring great staff, training them and making every dining experience... More

We had a wonderful lunch of dungeness crab/lobster burger and Maine Lobster Roll with the best truffle fires. The ambience was great and the service top notch! It was very busy but this restaurant knows how to staff and deliver great service. We can't wait to return for dinner.

What a lovely surprise from my husband for our anniversary! It was a first visit for both of us and we couldn't be more pleased. We utilized the complimentary valet, staffed by some really polite young men, then were shown to our table by Nick who, I believe was the owner/Manager...who congratulated us on our special celebration, decorated our table...

This was the second time this year I've eaten here, and both times I've been blown away by both the service and quality of the food. They have a great selection of in-house cuts which are some of the best steak i've ever had. The waiters are attentive and knowledgable and give you a good explanation of the dishes on... More

Capital Grille is a must visit in Seattle. Service was excellent and the food was excellent. We had our kids with us, ages 8 and 5 and was a little nervous taking them into a restaurant like this. The chef even let them go back in the kitchen and watch their food get plated. We can rave enough about this... More

Capital Grille is my daughter's favorite restaurant so my husband and I decided to dine there on our recent trip to Seattle. It was by far our favorite meal in Seattle - we just couldn't connect with any other restaurants for a good meal while there. Although we enjoyed our steaks, we couldn't help but compare it with Ruth's Chris,... More
