Capital Grille - Costa Mesa
Excellent service, fabulous steaksMy wife and I we're engaged at the Capital Grille in Orlando Florida. the wait staff there put in more than extra effort to make the day a very special one. Every anniversary we go to the Capital Grille in Costa Mesa to celebrate. They succeed in making those great memories come back every year. The steaks are usually the best I've found at any steakhouse, especially my favorite which is the Kona crusted steak. I also love their signature drink, the pineapple infused vodka libation known as the Stoli dole.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat brunch venuewas in a bind for mother's day brunch plans. capital grille has available reservation. excellent brunch. great selection. service was impeccable. Will definitely consider for future brunch occasions. too bad they only have it for Easter and mothers day.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAstonishing Attention to ServiceWOW! My family took Capital Grille for Mother's Day brunch. Wasn't sure how my 7-year old and 3-year old would fare in such a nice establishment. To my surprise, the restaurant was very well equipped to handle kids (probably in honor of Mother's Day) and the service was beyond. My kids did very well and my older one has now requested that she join her dad and I on our date nights because she can appreciate fine-dining. haha Kids..... Thank you Capital Grille for the wonderful food, the amazing service and most of the all, the fondest memories a mother can ask for, brunching with her girls on Mother's Day. :) Cheers!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingEverything from start to finish was spectacular! The lobster Mac and cheese was dynamite, as was the fillet mignon! The wine list wad extensive and very impressive. And the dessert!!! Oh the dessert!!! Both the ricotta cheesecake and the coconut cream pie should be outlawed in most states cuz they are do good it's criminal!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMoysters 1/2 shell?Gentleman: Have dined at Capitol Grill many times and always FABULOUS!
This saturday my wife,my son and I had an early MOTHERS DAY DINNER, the main entrees as usual we perfect! However, you have to make a change in regards to the OYSTERS,not good! Very small and basically tasteless!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was good but theThe food was good but the server mostly forgot about us. Had to remind her a couple of times to refill our iced tea. Was there the same day a bit earlier under the reservation under my client's name and that server was very good at her craft. I was not eating for I had a lunch meeting under my name through Open Table right after my meeting with Miss Russell. So needless to say, not a great tab for the first server who waited on me but you would never have known it for she was on top of us, making sure our glasses were full and everything was perfect.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMCapitol Grille is a perfectCapitol Grille is a perfect spot for a pre-theater dinner in Costa Mesa, steaks and seafood couldn't have been better and mashed potatoes were too good. Nice wine selection. For a chain, this is a winner5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMCould be betterThird try at this restaurant and still not impressed. The meals are expensive but just not that great. We ordered so filets, good not exceptional. Halibut was good also but served with polenta? Hid the taste of the halibut. Onion soup was excellent. The wedge salad was good if you like a buttermilk sweeter blue cheese dressing. The service was exceptional as was the atmosphere but there are too many other steak places that will blow you away. I think I am done with this place.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were great - as always, which is why I continue to return with guests that are important to me. From the valet to leaving the restaurant the service and attention are great. The halibut special was wonderful. I hope they have t next time.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding personal serviceHosted a friend for dinner recently --- we had not seen each other in many years so that made the evening a special event for us. We may have mentioned our reunion in passing or perhaps the staff observed our level of joy upon reuniting.. That they noticed demonstrates their level of wonderful yet discrete attentiveness. In any case, we were truly pampered by the highly professional staff to include our outstanding and exceptional waiter Derrick. He is truly an asset to the organization! Experienced highly pleasant, non-intrusive yet attentive service throughout the evening. Many special touches such as complimentary champagne, picture taking, etc without request by us. And of course, the food was, as always, great! Highly recommend!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMService and atmoshere wasService and atmoshere was outstanding and food was good, but actually preferred the tenderness and flavor of Ruth Chris steaks better. Also the complementary dessert for our anniversary celebration was very much appreciated as well.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best lunch menu in OrangeThe best lunch menu in Orange County. Great place to celebrate a Birthday! Perfection in service and food. The photo-op was a very nice touch!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall, Very Good!The only reason I gave my review 4 stars instead of 5 was because I was a bit annoyed with the hostess who sat us. She walked us to the far side of the restaurant to sit us at a table, at which time I asked her if we could sit at the booth that was right next to the table. She said "I'll have to go check." Really?? She left us standing there and then when she returned she asked us to follow her. She than sat us at a booth next to a table of four guys who were very loud. Why didn't she just sit us at the booth I requested? There were plenty open. Anyhow, that was annoying and a poor first impression.
Other than that, the rest of our experience was delightful. Our server, Jill, was wonderful and the food was amazing!

I brought my boyfriend here to celebrate his birthday. We shared the wedge with bleu cheese and applewood smoked bacon. It was a generous portion to split. I had the bone in kona crusted dry aged sirloin and my boyfriend had the porcini rubbed delmonico. The Delominco is like a ribeye. The steaks were prepared perfectly. Medium rare in the middle. It smelled good and tasted even better. Jill was our server and we look forward to seeing her again. She truly made our dinner experience a special evening. The staff was attentive. They brought us the Cheesecake for dessert. It was heavenly. Light not heavy. We would highly recommend the Capital Grille.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOur food was delicious, &Our food was delicious, & our waiter was very helpful; he helped us hurry a bit, so that we were able to enjoy our meal & get out when we need to at lunch.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Easter Brunch diningExcellent Easter Brunch dining experience.

Extreme patience with my experimenting for the table I liked best. Further accommodated me by bringing a chair with arms from the bar area to the table.Our server was magnificent. Asked for a suggestion for a red, dry, full bodied wine. He came up with an excellent and very reasonably priced choice. I was surprised at this low price compared to what I have been paying for a glass of restaurant wine. He also said if I didn't like it, he would bring something else. When we ordered our main courses (excellent lobster and excellent steak),we both opted for hot spinach salad. He suggested split one. This left enough room to enjoy our dinner.Their bread was also spectacular.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service. We hadExcellent service.
