I'm a big fan of the traditional steakhouse. Clubby leather seats, dark wood, and the hushed buzz of waitstaff busily serving up divine steak creations. I have enjoyed many steakhouses and the Capital Grille is really good but gets the drop down on service and that annoying little valet fee. Sure, it's not much, but ending your meal experience being... More

A Caprase Salad very easy to make of you have fresh ingredients!!! At the grill thay call it a Fresh... More

Four of us dined at Capital Grille before a Seattle Symphony Pops concert. The service was quite good and we were fortunate to be seated in a small room (John Nordstrom Portrait room) which made the ambiance very special. This restaurant requires a deep pocket as we spent about $200 per couple and only had 4 glasses of wine among... More

After a late visit to the Yves St. Laurent display at SAM, we decided to wait out Friday night traffic with drinks and dinner. Stopped first at The Brooklyn, as it's an old favourite, but the flashing TV screens, noise and lack of space turned us off. Hiked up the hill to Capital Grille, which was a true OASIS in... More

Quite unremarkable but serviceable restaurant if you want steak. There is nothing to recommend it but nothing to condemn it either.

I scheduled a business lunch and arrived before they opened. The Maitre 'd allowed me to wait in the bar area and then seated me. The waiter addresses me by name and offered me a drink while I waited for my colleague. The menu selections were broad and included vegetarian choices. I thought the atmosphere was business-professional and top notch.... More

I like The Capital Grille very much considering the taste of the stake and price. It is worthy visiting The Capital Grille. I would love to visit again at the Capital Grille but it is too far from Dhaka to visit.
