  • "Everything one may expect in a restaurant of high standards can be found at Magginao's. The servers was friendly, knowledgeable, and prompt. The food was great, taste and well portions affordable. The entire restaurant was clean and inviting. I usually do not use public restrooms, but Magginao's restroom met my standards."

  • "The service was superb....nice card from the staff and nice dessert. Food was excellent. Guest prefers meat on the more done side and her lamb chops arrived done that way but were still juicy and flavorful. Mashed were fantastic...not going to think about how much butter and cream must have been in them!"

When we were finished a surprise dessert emerged from the kitchen with a candle burning. Capital Grille is a wonderful memory for us and we plan to return soon."

  • "One of the best waitstaff and waitress we have ever had"
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "dine.CG often variance of sirloin cuts far too wide. Au Poivre 2" thick- very narrow 1-2"-tenderness compromised due to cut and grizzle on the last loin cut. wife's NY Sirloin presented well but thickness was only 1" - under the expected, but width and length were nicely cut. slightly undercooked (med request- was mr) waited several minutes for waiter to return. We asked for steak place on clean plate(bleeding)- waiter returned and stated"Here you are"- Service dissapointing bartender pre meal excellent asked if special event-it was- waiter never bothered seemed like the late covers were a chore- will ask for different waiter in future. His loss- I was in rest business 12 yrs and generally tip 25%-he got 15. Uncharacteristic for CG"

  • "This is my husbands favorite Go To Restaurant - He loves their Lobster Bisque soup - just ask for it as it does not appear on menu sometimes as well as the Baked stuffed Lobster. My son as always gets some huge steak and loves it. Mark Mueller, our server, as always, very attentive, and knowledgeable of the menu. We always request Mark. We already made our reservations for Easter Sunday."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Our dining experience at Capital Grille was excellent. The filet was very tender, and the lobster mac was sinfully good. We enjoyed an excellent Catena Malbec. The wait staff were very attentive. It was a bit noisy at first entry with the active bar scene up front, but we had a nice booth for four that enabled us to have good business conversation."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "My wife and I were taken back with the service, quality of the food, and overall experience. We were expected to visit an every-day bar and grille type of restaurant; however, Capital Grille is not that but so much more. They dry-age and cut their steaks in-house and the taste of everything we ate was magnificent!!!"
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Be prepared for a memorable evening and tab to fit. The staff was well trained and attentive to every detail. The steak was divine and the mushroom and veggie sides were nicely prepared. We shared a large steak and sides and bottle of wine. A great way to go cause you get to try several different items. A special occasion place for sure."

  • "Very sound place, pleasant atmosphere, Food was exquisite, and coca cola was crisp"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My wife ordered the sliced Filet well done and it came out medium at best. I ordered a Porcini rubbed Delmonico. I cut into my completely raw steak. I ordered mine med rare but this was seared at best. So I sent it back. It came back 5 mins later still raw but now a bit burnt. After it came back for the 2nd time it was cooked better but the gaze was completely burnt. I couldn't eat the steak as it tasted like burnt sugar and char. They of course took care of the steak and apologized up and down. These things happen so this will not detour us from going back but I was very disappointed that they didn't just cook another steak properly for me so after all the waiting I could have at least enjoyed the steak."

  • "We went on a very busy night...Valentines Day. The food was delicious! Most of our group had beef, one had the lamb. I am not a beef eater, but there were plenty of other things on the menu for me! The steak eaters raved about their porterhouse steaks, the lamb person said it was superb. Melted in their mouths! The staff was very friendly, and our meals were presented in a very exceptional fashion, I think we had a server for each of us! We will definitely return."

  • "This was our first time dining here. It was fabulous. Our waiter, Carlos, was wonderful and very attentive. The food was great. We left very happy and plan to dine there again."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "What can I say? This place is about as close to perfect as it gets. Everything I ate was outstanding: the chopped salad, the filet, the au gratin potatoes, the creamed corn and the lobster mac & cheese (with large chunks of lobster). The best item may have been the cheesecake with the berries and berry sauce! It is an incredible dessert with a slight brûlée on top. The service was excellent as well. Our waiter greeted us by name and took care of everything we needed without stopping by too often. The prices are steep, however it is well worth the price for a special occasion as everything here is made from the highest quality of ingredients."

  • "I dined here for an Anniversary. The Capital Grille made it so special. It was outstanding in every way! I would recommend to anyone!"
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Adam could not have given us a more enjoyable dining experience. The food was its' usual excellent quality but the Steak Au Poivre was so stunningly poor (and three out of five ordered it) that we feel compelled to warn other diners re that dish only. The black pepper crust was so dense it overpowered the no doubt excellent dry aged beef. Worse yet was the almost flavorless and gloppy sauce. If it had any brandy or Demi glacé in it , it was not in evidence. We did not complain or send them back because it was a special occasion and we did not want to put a damper on the excellent mood of our guests. Order everything else on the menu. Stay away from anything Au Poivre."

  • "My husband and I chose Capital Grille to celebrate his birthday on a Saturday night. From the moment we arrived the evening was excellent. Our server, I believe her name was Sheryl, was outstanding; very professional and very familiar with every item on the menu. The table was decorated with confetti and the staff had a signed birthday card on the table. My husband ordered the Fillet Oscar and I ordered the filet. Both were perfectly cooked and delicious. The spinach salad and side of creamed corn were also delicious. They provided two yummy desserts served on a "happy birthday" plate, complete with candles. We had a wonderful time and will definitely visit again."

  • "Great service, food and wine. Can be a little pricey as everything is a la carte however for a special occasion it's well worth it."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "We were celebrating a special birthday and the entire staff was most accommodating. Shawn's service was flawless. Her knowledge of the wine and menu couldn't have been better. All three steaks were perfectly cooked and delishious. The Sole entree was wonderful. The scalloped potatoes were the best I've ever had. We all loved the cheesecake as well. It was just 4 of us and our parents are hard of hearing but we were in a booth and she commented just today on how pleasant it was. Can't wait to go back."

  • "Having lived in Los Angeles for 22 years & just moved here 8 months ago, I was excited to try. We arrived earlier than our reservation, they sat us, but refused to seat us in a booth (in case someone else came in w/a later reservation). There was NO ONE in the restaurant. Are you serious? The waiter was nice & friendly, but not really helpful and seemed to be trying to over sell everything. We ordered an appetizer, wine and lobster. The food was good, but nothing to write home about. Our bill was well over $225.00 just for 2 of us! Definitely not worth that!! I have been to many restaurants like this in Los Angeles that were amazing, but never cost us this much, especially not for what you're getting. Just kind of disappointed all around."

  • "Capital Grille is the perfect place for having a special dinner. We were celebrating our 20th Wedding Anniversary and were treated like royalty. The hostess smiled as she took us to our table. What a surprise, the table was decorated with hearts and a card. How very thoughtful and a beautiful way to begin our dinner. Our waiter, Alex then welcomed us and wished us a Happy Anniversary. He was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Our food was amazing. It was prepared as we like it and very delicious. Thanks to all who made our dinning experience wonderful and a very memorable anniversary. We will definitely be back and will happily recommend Capital Grille to our friends."
