I was part of a large group here and got to share a lot of dishes. So many of them were seriously top class. Also had a delicious main along with some nice local craft beers.

Abe provided A+ service going above and beyond on a couple of occasions. We always enjoy the three-course meal during restaurant week. We didn’t feel the food was quite as good as it normally is but still great!

Very upscale atmosphere and service. Prices to match. Food was beautifully presented but steak was a little tough.. Its a perfect restaurant to impress a business associate. The decor has a very “Good Ol Boys Private Country Club” feel.

Had a birthday dinner here when visiting Phoenix. As usual, the Capital Grille didn’t disappoint. The service was excellent and the food perfect. This is one of my favorite places to eat when wanting a great steak and top notch dining experience.

The Capital Grill is a wonderful Steakhouse with a great variety of dishes and meat cuts. Try the Lobster Mac‘n Cheese. They are simply the best on this planet. Staff is very professional and friendly. Prices high but still within a reasonable range.

Not really a kid friendly restaurant. Not that they wouldn't be polite but the kids would probably hate it. The atmosphere is dimly lit and sophisticated. More of an executive and special occasion type restaurant.
