Capital Grille - Scottsdale
Great Night, Lousy ServiceOur group of six had an amazing meal at Capital Grille over the weekend. The steaks were amazing, the sides (oh, the lobster mac & cheese!) delicious, the dessert amazing. What would have made this meal PERFECT would have been a fantastic server, but alas, it was not the case. She screwed up cocktails, she forgot soft drink refills, she fouled up orders and, time and again, kept forgetting things we requested. At these prices you'd EXPECT perfection. Unfortunately, we did not get it.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentVery much enjoyed the crab-lobster burger, and my friend had a great lobster roll. The service was stellar.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMJust becauseThis is a lovely restaurant if you are celebrating something or someone special. We, however, dined there just because. Our server was impressively knowledgeable of the wine selections and even took the time to explain the dry age process. We had the filet and dry aged sirloin. The sirloin is the way to go but the filet was also cooked perfectly. The dry age process really does give the steak more flavor. We will definitely be coming back!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always great wait staff.As always great wait staff. Capital Grille always makes you feel special. Food great too.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect ending to a weekOutstanding service with great food. Loved the filet mignon but the flourless chocolate cake really outstanding. Enjoyed a fine Cataluyan wine. Never a disappointment.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerFrom the beginning our experience was wonderful as staff prepared a Happy Anniversary table for us. This really impressed my wife. Our Server, Kevin, was knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly! The food was timely, and prepared as requested. Our picture was taken and a card prepared which again impressed my wife and made our dining experience one to remember. I have already told several of our friends about our experience at the Capital Grille, Scottsdale!!! Thank you for a wonderful dining experience!!

Perfect weather allowed us the opportunity to dine out on the patio where
we all had the perfectly "done as ordered' filets.
Service was outstanding and we look forward to returning!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were a party of 4. I hadWe were a party of 4. I had the dry aged sirloin cooked to perfection. My partner had the steak with cognac and black peppercorns. Just delicious. Our other guests shared a cheese filled macaroni dish. Heart attack on a plate but well worth the eating.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial OccasionMy husband and I went out for our anniversary and the service staff really did a few nice extras: flowers on the table, a nice card, photos at the end of our meal and dessert. They really tried to make it personal and have more then just the standard interaction with us, which was nice. Everything was very prompt and the courses were spread out and perfectly timed, A+ there!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayUsually going out on a holiday is a nightmare, but not at Capital Grille in N Scottsdale. They were professional and made it great experience despite the volume they were working against. I have been to this restaurant before and it has become the restaurant to count on for romantic dinners, business entertaining, and holiday feasting. It is great! I live farther away in the Valley now, but the 45 minute drive is well worth it. In fact, we stay at the Four Season's in N Scottsdale and will take a taxi from the hotel to Capital Grille. That's how good it is.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation CelebrationWe went to Capital Grille to celebrate our son's graduation from Arizona State University. We live in a food-centric city (San Francisco) and I would not hesitate recommending Capital Grille to any of our foodie friends. The food, service, drinks, wine, and ambiance were excellent.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother winning mealCapitol Grille doesn't disappoint. We both had steaks,cooked to perfection. Delicious half bottle of wine from the extensive wine list. It's a favourite restaurant for sure.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDelmonico Heaven!!!Hands down one of the best steaks that I have had in a very long time. I had the Porcini Rubbed Delmonico with 12-Year Aged Balsamic and my guest had the Kona Crusted Dry Aged Delmonico. We shared the creamed spinach and the Au Gratin Potatoes and the Creamed Spinach and for desert we split a piece of Chocolate Cake. Everything was superb from the services to the atmosphere. We were shown to our table as soon as we walked in the door and the manager took the time to stop by our table to welcome us and check on everything. From the history that hung on the walls to the extensive wine list everything was perfect. The meal was expensive and not something we could do all the time, but every now and then it is nice to treat yourself.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is always good; theThe food is always good; the service is impeccable; and, the smoking patio is a great place to enjoy a good cigar.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAll was great we ate at theAll was great we ate at the bar service was outstanding.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMEXCELLENT AS ALWAYS, LOBSTEREXCELLENT AS ALWAYS, LOBSTER BISQUE WAS PERFECT, STEAK OSCAR WAS OVER THE TOP, PRIMO BREAD & ROLLS, FANTASTIC SERVICE, GREAT WINES AS ALWAYS.

It was our first time and I truly enjoyed the experience!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGood But Not GreatLet's start with the Oustanding service and dwindle from there. Our server did an outstanding job of presenting the menu or answeing questions about it, he was spot on in everyway. Our appetizer was the calamari with peppers it was a great way to start, I had the Kona sirloin, it was good overall. My Boss had the fillet it was tender, but not much in the way of taste. Sides were asparagus and the lobester mac and cheese neither were impressive but just ok.
The manager did come by right before we got our steaks and was very cordial.
Overall a good but not great meal.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were there for our 39thWe were there for our 39th wedding anniversary and the table was prepared with rose petals and a congratulatory note.
