We travel quite a bit and have always enjoyed the Capital Grill for service, quality and ambiance so while in Scottsdale we thought we were on the right track. The service and surroundings were what we had grown to expect from our previous experiences in other cities but the food kind of surprised us and fell a bit short this... More

A New Orleans couple, my wife and I all have birthdays within weeks of each other. For the past several years, we celebrate them together by traveling to a destination together. This year, our friends came to our hometown of Scottsdale, AZ. With many fine restaurants to choose from, we chose this one because of its wide variety of great... More

Everything was perfect, from the salad to the wine and sweets. Couldn't have asked for a more perfectly cooked steak, and the mashed potatoes had to be more than 50% butter and cream (which is perfect).

Great food and good location on the corner of Frank Lloyd Wright and Scottsdale Road. Great service as well. So many good restaurants in Scottsdale but Capital Grille is in the top 10.

Went with friends on Saturday and usually service is great whenever we have been there but it was extremely busy due to the Phoenix Open being near-by and I think we had a new waiter working the outdoor cigar smoking patio. After a long time waiting for our Stoli-Doli's, which are awesome Martini's, our waiter returned with out them not... More

We always seem to pick Capital Grill for our special dining experiences. We were seated promptly and served by Colin who was fantastic. He recommended the lobster mac & cheese as a side. Wow oh Wow was it delicious. We split a sea bass dinner which left room for dessert. Make no mistake about it, Capital Grill is a quiet,... More

We've been going here for our anniversary for the past few years. Obviously we like the place. Always friendly staff, especially our waiter Joe. Wish I got his last name. Next time. Steaks were great, cooked perfectly. I had a glass of wine and when I wasn't sure what to order, Joe brought out 3 different wines to make sure... More

We love this place, the service is always good and they have a good wine selection. I love the ribeye and my wife usually gets the salmon or filet. I don't think you can go wrong. The steak sandwich is great for lunch too.

If you are looking for an amazing meal timed meticulously then look no further. We have had the pleasure of experiencing dining perfection with Kevin at the helm. Kevin times the meal perfectly with the precision of an amazing ballad. The bone in Ribeye literally melts in your mouth, the Chilean Sea Bass was a medley of sweet flavors. All... More
