I can not say how impressed I was by this restaurant. First it is expensive but worth it. The NY strip I had was so very good lots of flavor cooked just right and no fat. I had a loaded baked potatoe. I wish I had tried the cream spinich but instead I got the butternut quash soup and it... More

We come here for every special occasion: birthdays anniversaries holidays. They never disappoint. The service from phone call to valet is impeccable. Andrea always serves us and she's a gem. The food is terrific and now they serve a small side w your steak. The wine and cocktails also excellent choices. You can't go wrong.

Excellent,food, service, drinks. No matter which Capitol Grille I have been to, Orlando, Chicago or Seattle they are all excellent and this one is no exception from giving us black napkins to avoid lint from the white ones on the table to the offer of plating our wine you can't go wrong with the Capitol Grille.

This is the fourth Capital Grille I have visited. The other 3 were on the east coast, so I was interested in checking out this location. I can tell you that I was extremely pleased. The waitstaff were professional and the food was supreme. I had the lobster bisque and Caesar salad to start and both were excellent. The steak... More

We love celebrating at the Capital Grille - they'll bring champagne or a dessert on special occasions. The food is always fantastic, as are the staff. The stoli doli drink is the best.

Visited on July 27th, 2016. It was my spouses birthday and we were treated very well. The table was set up with confetti and what looked to be a personalized birthday card for them. We don't have a lot of money, so when we do really nice stuff like this, it is nice to know we are getting the best... More

I took my friend for his 34th birthday, and the luncheon was perfect. The service was impeccable, the food exquisite, and the dining room lavish. I love this place, and it is one of the top places to celebrate a special occasion in Seattle!

From the moment you walk in you are treated like a guest they would love to pamper and feed. The original artwork, largely of Seattle icons, is just beautiful. Every seat and booth in the restaurant is very comfortable and has staying power. Service is personal, efficient and they always ask what you are celebrating. From the wine and cocktails,... More

Capital Grill use to be my favorite steak house in Seattle BUT the last 3 times have been extremely disappointing. Each of the last 3 trips we ordered the bone in ribeye medium rare and all 3 times the steak was VERY under done (one time almost blue). Each time the manager tried to rectify by refiring (I hate that)... More

We had lunch at the Capital Grill while on a quick visit to Seattle, on our way to Alaska. The server was extremely friendly, and very patient with the kids. The food was delicious, and the portions very generous. The calamari starter was very tasty and everybody enjoyed it very much. Portions were very generous, and we ended up taking... More
