We loved it so much that we sent his parents for his mom's birthday too! The food and aervice were over the top! The Capital Grill set new expectations for a birthday dinner.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Fabulous EveningLet me start by saying we always enjoy The Capital Grill! On this night, our regular wait person was off and the manager, Heather, chose another wait person for this evening's dining experience. An excellent choice; Carmen was a great substitute and did an outstanding job. Our food was superb! Their crab louie starter salad, a special that night, was fantastic! Our steaks were cooked perfectly and you can never go wrong with their creamed corn and truffle fries. It was a special night for us and The Capital Grill did us right!! Thanks Heather and your team!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Service and WineI went here to take some customers to dinner and what a phenominal experience we had! I'm definetly coming back! Our server Luis is the best!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, exquisite service!Traditional American steakhouse with impecable service and great good. Amazing wine list !5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGastronomic ExcellenceBravo to Nick and his Staff for providing well executed, high quality, cuisine. Nowhere in Seattle can you get fresh made mozzarella that comes pretty close to the one made in Southern Italy.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been to the CapitalWe have been to the Capital Grill four times in the last year and enjoyed every minute there. The service and food were out of this world. The Mothers day brunch was grand and the desserts were so good we were tempted to steal the tray and risk arrest just to have some when we got home......but we didn't. We can not say enough about our service at the Grill on Mothers day! The staff made our stay the best possible by being near and by asking us if we needed anything, as well as engaging and continually helping us at our table every time. We were very impressed with the service in the past. We will return.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood foods but very expensiveServices and foods are great but very expensive. Good place for a special occasion but not for a nomal dining.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMClass ActI very much enjoyed my visit here. Great food selections, excellent service but is a little more expensive than I might ordinarily spend so would consider it a great option for a special occasion. It is very convenient to the local theaters downtown and worth considering tacking on dinner to a show. Nice selection between steaks and seafood. Sides are large enough to share so use that to your advantage. If you order wine by the bottle they had a nice selection to chose from. I would definitely go back!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMfoodOur food was outstanding. Scallops & steak done to perfection5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMServer was nice but we feltServer was nice but we felt a little rushed as the food came out incredibly fast...4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Capital Grille alwaysThe Capital Grille always makes you feel welcome and special! Service is impeccable and all employees friendly and attentive! We have been there for serveral special occasions when we need to be in Seattle. However, our home is in Portland, Oregon and so we cannot dine there as often as we would like to.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything about our experienceEverything about our experience was perfect. The service, the food and we even had the manager roaming around to make sure that things were completely to our likeing. Be sure to get the steaks here....they were perfectly prepared. We had a wonderful evening.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a predectiably wonderfulAlways a predectiably wonderful place. Great food and excellent service.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMCapital Grille is a very specialCapital Grille is a very special restaurant, and wonderful place to go before the theater, however, very pricey. We both had the medallions of filet mignon with mushrooms and onions and a light, very flavorfull sauce. Absolutely delicious, and melted in our mouths. The mashed potatoes were so creamy and delicious too. Oh, we split the wedge salad, and the dressing was very good and not too bleu cheesy. A meal to remember, that's for sure.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe prefer dining at The CapitalWe prefer dining at The Capital Grille for business dinners because it offers outstanding food, service, and a "quieter" atmosphere so important for having important business discussions. We are never disappointed. While we tend to use the restaurant for business purposes, it would also be a great place for personal dining events.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMLobster macaroni and cheeseLobster macaroni and cheese is to die for. Ready to go back just for a double order of that.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSalad prepared well with requestedSalad prepared well with requested less than usual (excessive) dressing.
Salmon a bit overcooked, but still moist; asparagus not cooked enough -- large stalk pieces nearly inedible.

The service was great, and the food was delicious. We will be back.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMNeed fresh flowers. The restaurantNeed fresh flowers. The restaurant appears to cater to men. I felt like I was in a men's club. As a woman I would like a litte touch of feminine to the decor.
Other than that the food was excellent and the service.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding in every way!The food is always outstanding, so is the service by Ben(jam in). It was Seattle Restaurant week, and the eatery was very busy and yet, the service was excellent.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAn absolute gem! One of theAn absolute gem! One of the best restaurants in Seattle. Good, American Food. No "art pieces" just great food, great presentation and great service!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe appreciated having thisWe appreciated having this opportunity to take advantage of the Seattle $28 three course dinners before attending the 5th Ave production. The two waiters and two managers took special care of us even though we weren't the biggest spenders (probably) at the restaurant. We'll return!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWhen making a reservation,When making a reservation, I requested a quiet table so we could talk. They went above and beyond to ensure this would happen and put us in their library. Excellent lunch!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA work colleague and I madeA work colleague and I made reservations for Seattle Restaurant Week, thinking that would be a more affordable way to have lunch at the Capital Grille. But we both chose the scallops from their $16 "Plates" menu and were completely satisfied. An excellent meal from start to finish, and our waiter, Aram, was knowledgeable about the preparations and attentive without hovering. Great place for a business lunch.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was delicious and serviceFood was delicious and service was fast as we told them we didn't have alot of time! Will be back!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great dining experienceWe had a great dining experience at Capital Grille. We have been at that location a few times and it is always great. Our waiter Daniel was very attententive and extremely versed in the wine list.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBeing that this was my secondBeing that this was my second visit to the restaurant I was still greatly impressed with the service; however there was a very high standard set for the food and service upon my first visit, and this time the food slightly lacked. I'd gone for lunch around 12:00pm the first time, and this last time 1:00pm. My food was slightly cold,and I found my creme brulee a bit cold and yet burnt, but I did find that the restaurant had settled down and wasn't quite as busy as the first time and I enjoyed that.
Still the service was amazing, the food tasted great even at it's cold state, and the room is filled with a very relaxing vibe.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMy first visit was duringMy first visit was during Restaurant Week and it was everything I'd heard about and more. The food was wonderful and generous portions (the salmon was perfect) for the reduced price. Service was excellent and the ambience was comfortable and relaxed. Will definitely go back.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of My FavsI've gone to the Capital Grille twice now and I consistently enjoyed myself immensely. The food absolutely melts in your mouth and I like how they have the tables well spaced apart. The wine menu is extensive however I'm a tea drinker so I can't quite comment on wines that they offer. Service is certainly one of the best experiences I've had. From valet, hosts, bus people, and wait staff. I greatly enjoy dining here and I continue to do so.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was outstanding.The service was outstanding. The steaks were perfect and the atmosphere very pleasing. We would recommend it and will return.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is delish. Service isFood is delish. Service is outstanding. The waiter's suggestion for wine, even though a cheap bottle, was surprisingly good, glad he shared his opinion.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI always enjoy this place.I always enjoy this place. It may be a chain, but you'd never know it from the personalized service and outstanding food. The wine list is extremely fairly priced at both low and high ends. There are some excellent choices for $30 a bottle or so, and the $100 bottles are also reasonable compared to some other area restaurants.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMCapitol grill is a classicCapitol grill is a classic steak house. Great presentation and service underline the experience. My steak was cooked to perfection. The kind of a place you can have a big city dinner experience. However I would entertain one caveat in this comment concerning quality. During restaurant week when any person extends an experience in fine dining a restaurant should give the diner the complete experience. Rather than ask the diner to complete their own experience. I enjoy the opportunity to challenge my own ideas by how the chef would complete the meal. The Capitol grill will be a great night out for those seeking a perfectly cooked steak, you will not be disappointed.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMother places stand out moreother places stand out more if I was going to spend the $$ for a nice dinner.
But I am a foodie and found the food good but not exceptional.
I would go back for the service more than the food4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNothing but the bestSpectacular service. Impeccable. Even on a very busy evening we were given nothing but gracious and attentive service by the valet, the hostesses, the food runner and most of all our hospitable server. Oh yeah. And the food was fantastic also!!!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this restaurant! TheI love this restaurant! The food and service were excellent!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a pre-show dinner atWe had a pre-show dinner at Capital Grille during Restaurant Week. The food was great. The waiter was very helpful. He made a great wine recommendation. When he overheard my sister talking about wine labels and wishing she knew how to remove them he offered to try and get the label off our bottle. Later one of the managers came back with the label and had taped it on a card for us. When trying to decide between three dessert options our waiter gave us some of each so we didn't have to decide.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent (meat justFood was excellent (meat just slightly overcooked from requested medium rare). Service was attentive, but not excessive. Water glasses were refilled before empty. The only downside was entrees arrived while we were still eating our salads (and neither of us eats slowly).4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and exceptionalExcellent food and exceptional service!! The Manager even came by to greet and check up on our our food and ask about our evening plans. Highly recommend people to check out this fine dining gem!4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food but by far theGreat food but by far the best was the very professional and personable wait staff. Will definitely eat there again!4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWe visited Capital GrilleWe visited Capital Grille for lunch during Seattle Restaurant Week. Everything was perfect...the food, the service, the ambience. This is one of our favorite Seattle restaurants.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time but not the last!Great place to eat. Staff was very professional and friendly. Food was very good, Dessert was exceptional, Aspargus was great, but the Kona Custed Sirloin Steak, though very good, was little tough and dry. All in all this is a restaurant I will return to and add to my list of steakhouses that I eat in in Seattle. I am new to Seattle and am trying steak houses and Italian restaurants to add to my favorites list. The manager was extremely helpful and her concern that I though my steak was a little dry gives me reason to return soon.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first time to dine hereOur first time to dine here but definitely not our last! The food was excellent and the service outstanding . Our wonderful waiter Austin took great care of us the entire evening . It was a pleasure to meet the manager Nicolas , thank you for your excellent attentiveness to everyone. We hope to see you both again in the near future.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGood find, excellent serviceGood find near Benroya Hall. They have a symphony special that's pretty good. Everything al la carte so it can get expensive. Service was over the top, in spite of the server "mis-directing" me on the dessert - he told me one thing and brought a different flavor - no big deal. Need to go lighter on the salt so be careful with the seasoning - manager was told and she was very gracious about it and offered another try. Wine list is outstanding. Beverages were very generous. Dinner for two ran about $60 per person so make it a special evening.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and superior service.The food was absolutely perfect! I had crab/lobster stuffed prawns that were to die for and my other half enjoyed the citrus salmon. Daniel, our Server, was helpful and very, very attentive without being overly so, and offered the hubby a free dessert for his birthday. Andrea, who served us in the bar prior to our meal was also really good. We are already looking forward to another visit.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways outstandingWe've dined at Capital Grille many times and it the food and service is always extraordinary.
