It has been a really nice dinner! Waiters were kind and everything I ate was really good (being italian i'm hard to please regarding food). Taking into account the central location "Capital Grille" is definitely reccommended!

Dined here during Restaurant Week. Outstanding service and food, wonderful atmosphere. My compliments go out to the Manager Craig who provided above and beyond service during our stay. My fiancé had the 3 course special that was offered, I ordered just a salad. We both really enjoyed our meals, we sat in a very cozy booth. The restaurant was busy... More

A group of 8 of us dined here and all I can say is the food and the service was outstanding. I had the Delmonico steak which is a 22oz bone in rib eye and it was one of the best steaks I have ever had. The Parmesan Truffle Fries were also very tasty.Overall it was one of the best... More

Came here to celebrate my boyfriend's new job offer, and the service and food were superb. They offered us complimentary champagne, dessert, confetti, a congratulations card, and a souvenir photo for the wonderful meal and experience had at Capital Grille. The food was among the best meals I've ever had. The prosciutto, chilean sea bass, sauteed spinach, and cheesecake were... More

We spent the day shopping and were looking for something that was open late. They graciously sat us just before their kitchen closed. We had the salmon and ahi tuna. If their fish tastes that fantastic and they don't necessarily specialize in fish, imagine what the dishes they do taste like. The pumpernickel bread was to die for, but unfortunately... More

Normally my dining reviews focus on the food and then service. This review starts with service. Our table of four received exemplary service from Humberto J. He was very professional, knowledgeable, and timely without being intrusive. Often, a positive food experience is tarnished by poor service. In this instance, while the food was consistently good quality and delicious, it was... More

The service at Capital Grille is over top especially at that particular evening. The food and desserts were very good, the atmosphere is awesome. All I can say is I would order the Delmonico Steak is awesome.

Although this probably the largest, busiest and loudest location I have been to in their chain, the food and beverage quality remains at the consistent high level experienced at other locations.

I recently dined at the Seattle Location for New Year's Eve. There were 8 in our party. I've been to this location at least 10 times and have been very happy and also have Pharmaceutical lecture dinners often. I rave about Capital Grille to business partners and friends. Sadly, I experienced the oppositive with my recent visit. Ordered the Kona... More

I've been here half a dozen times. This was the first time I had a mediocre meal, not enhanced by lackadaisical service that was out of character for the place. That said, it was Restaurant Week, and they were packed. Maybe our waiter was simply tired... though it's too bad some of the food was just slightly tired as well.... More
