5 thumbs up! 8/26/2013

Very delicious food... The appetizers was a kick! i really love the lobster and crab cakes... My favorite was the Dry Aged Sirloin Steak it was really tender from in and out of the steak it was a mouthful experience and really love it. It was a highly recommended restaurant. more

Dissapointed 6/23/2008

OK we went there this last Saturday night. The establishment itself was very nice, with decent ambiance. The wait staff were quite good, yet I was dissapointed.\r \r My wife and I thought that for $200 the dinner was actually quite average. The side dishes were competent but really nothing special. And the steaks were decent (I had the porterhouse and she had the New York Strip) but it was pretty average fair all in all. I expected a bit more flavor and presentation for these prices.\r \r After eating at the Metropolitan Grille in Seattle recently, I have to say that the steaks are inferior in taste at the Capital grille compared to the Metropolitan grille. I may not be back actually, I won't be back unless someone is paying for me. Pros: nice atmosphere, great service Cons: average side dishes and average tasting steak more

Best steak in town. PERIOD 5/2/2008

My all time favorite steakhouse in the country is Smith & Wollensky's, but this is right there, just slightly less impressive. Capital Grill is outstanding in my opinion in quality of beef, service, and ambiance. Well worth the money and you will return my friends. I would only recommend Ruth's Chris close to this here in Phoenix. Flemings is tops on service, but the steaks did not even compare. Go here and have at it--their Kona coffee rub is outrageous, as are the side dishes! Pros: What can I say? the best steak in town, and 2nd best in the U.S. Cons: Hmmm, the fact that you can't eat there everyday without going bankrupt? more

amazing steak 3/2/2008

This place has amazing steaks and seafood. The atmosphere is very nice and perfect for a romantic dinner. The prices are a bit expensive but its because of how fine the steaks are. more

Best Steakhouse in Town 10/24/2007

I'm confounded by the reviews I read where they claim the Capital Grille is overpriced or boring. I've dined at the CG in Miami, Ft Lauderdale, Philadelphia, Las Vegas, Denver, Phoenix and Scottsdale and it is by far the best corporate owned steakhouse in the country, easily out distancing the over hyped Ruths Chris and their gimmicky hot plate or the once great but outdated Mortons. I go to the CG for the over 800 bottle wine list and the dry aged steaks. The service is customiarily outstanding and the staff's wine and food knowledge is exceedingly above board. The decor is just what I expect from a old school traditional steakhouse. Dark wood, cigar humidor, oil paintings and a wine list that expands from $30 Kendall Jackson Chardonay to $3000 Screaming Eagle Cabernet. The prices are inline with the Smith and Wolenskis and Delmonico's of the world and I would highly recommend the Capital Grille to anyone wishing a special dining experience. Make sure to try the Kona Crusted sirloin and the Coconut Creme Pie. Pros: Wine List and Steaks Cons: Limited Fish Selection as expected more

Don't waste your money 9/8/2007

I can't understand why this over-priced place is popular. It has a snobby feel to it (truly fine dining does not have that feel to it - all feel welcome and comfortable). I have eaten here 3x's (never my choice) and the food has always been ""OK"". I think I could make something tastier at home myself. The prices are totally unjustified and the atmosphere is so old and stuffy. NOT FUN, this is a place for those w/o imagination. Cons: over-priced, stuffy atmosphere, bland food more

Awful 8/15/2007

I expected this restaurant to match the ones I've visited in other cities. It was an awful experience and we will never return. Our waiter was rude and cocky, the male management was surly and the food was just okay. This is a poor example of a supposed upscale restaurant. more

Excellent 5/19/2007

I am a Concierge at a resort nearby the Capital Grille and we always send guests there and have yet to hear a complaint. Their service is top-notch, their food is always excellent, and their private dining is always a good idea. I was surprised to see some negative comments on this website, because we have about 100 people dine there a month that all come back with raving reviews. \r \r Pros: service, ambiance, food, wine, desserts Cons: I can't eat there everyday more

Absolutely TERRIBLE in every single way!!!! 2/14/2007

We had a group of 20 people, and not one single person was happy. Not only was the service inexcusably bad, the manager didn't even acknowledge our complaints. He promised to call us to follow up, and it has been 2 weeks and we haven't heard a thing. The appetizers were boring, the steak was mediocre at best, and the sides were no better than a microwaved Marie Callenders meal, and that was if you could even get your hands on them since the waiter was dishing them out as he saw fit. I would not recommend Capital Grille to anyone, unless of course you are breaking up with someone, and you want to take them out for a terrible evening. I have had a far better meal at Dennys. Please, please, please, avoid Capital Grille at all costs. more

Works for small group for Holiday Luncheon... 12/27/2006

Who knew it would be so crowded two weeks before Christmas, at lunch? But, the food was great, steaks to order, and service pretty darn good for having a full house. I've not ever had an unpleasant dining experience at The Capital Grille. It's a favorite! more
