We love the Capital Grill for a nice steak dinner with the quintessential steak house ambience and service. Thanks to Jill, our fabulous server, we discovered an amazing new wine from the Wagner Family (makers of Caymus): Emmolo. Amazing merlot that drinks like a Cab!

We were greeted by the hostess who took us to our table and sat us . The server arrived quickly after we were seated took... More

Each time my wife and I have visited the Capital Grille in Scottsdale, the staff and management treats us as if we owned the place. Not only is the steak and seafood top-shelf, but the Managing partner, Brian, always takes time to discuss new and interesting wines that suit our tastes and menu choices.

My husband and I had a wonderful evening at Capital Grille. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. I highly recommend the Capital Grille for a special occasion dinner or just for a nice evening out.

Wonderful service by our waiter, Jaimez. We ordered the fillet steak and seafood in tomato sauce. The steak was cooked to perfection. The seafood was perhaps a bit overcooked. It's definitely a high end restaurant and can highly recommend. Valet parking is available too.

Had lunch today with another couple. What a relaxing and delicious lunch. Our waiter was Joe who was attentive but set the pace of service to our needs. We all had different salads which were tasty and fresh. Enjoyed the conversation and lunch. Great way to catch up with friends in such a nice setting. Highly recommend.

The service is always A+ and the food delicious. We eat here for special occasions and have never been disappointed. The quality of food is always top notch. Noise level is low so you can have a conversation with out yelling across the table. I would recommend making reservations.

This was absolutely the most incredible meal ever. Of course, you are paying for it. We were celebrating something, but there was only 6 of us and paid $1,300. (Keep in mind that we had some very expensive wine). We enjoyed the seafood tower for an appetizer, all had amazing seafood and steaks for dinner and desserts! The service is... More

We have enjoyed Capital Grille for sometime but tonight was not that great. We liked the attentive service and well trained staff. The restaurant is very cold; I know why the waiters wear jackets. The atmosphere is dark and quiet. Our salads were well prepared but most of the bread was pretty hard and not all that great. The dessert... More

I have been to The Capital Grill a half dozen times now and it has always been excellent. Went last weekend for a special occasion and Andy our waiter made the night even better. The lobster and filet were outstanding as always but I can't say enough about the service. It is expensive but well worth the money especially for... More
