“Again, this place is excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Food, service, drinks, atmosphere are all excellent. This place is a regular stop when in Phoenix. This time we sat in the Goldwater booth for my parent's anniversary. Yes, I got to join them to celebrate. The service is always perfect. If you have never eaten here, do so. It is a bit pricey so be prepared but it is well worth it.

“Never Disappointed with CG”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Had Dinner for 4 on fathers day, the service, the atmosphere and without a doubt the food was excellent. great wine selection, outstanding steaks made to perfection. The only disappointment was desert the cake my daughter had was dry and appeared to be a bit old, and the creme b was just mediocre . But it was an enjoyable meal over all.

“Best steakhouse around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

My husband and I ate there this past April as it was our last night in Phoenix and as usual The Capital Grille never fails to deliver a wonderful, consistent meal with great service. I had a special that evening of filet mignon and Alaska king crab legs and my husband had his favorite the porterhouse. Of course, we have to have the creamed spinach! Just delicious and a great wine to boot!

“In the running for best steakhouse in metro Phoenix”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

Did a “classic" salad, steak, potato meal. And it was as good as it gets. Salads were cold, crisp and perfectly dressed. We both had the filet, served a precisely proper medium-rare. The cut was flawless and tender; the flavor outstanding. My companion and I both agreed that this was probably the best steak we’ve had in the Phoenix area, easily giving Durant’s, Donovan’s, Shula’s, etc. a run for the money.

“Back again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We keep coming back to the Capital Grille for the steaks and the service. While there are other local "high end" steakhouses in the area, we have never quite been satisfied with the level of quality that the competitors have provided. We had our usual filets. Services was excellent, so five dots. The only thing out of the ordinary was that the manager didn't stop by our table to see how things were going. Over all, five dots.
