    We had an amazing time for a special night at the Biltmore Fashion Park location. Flowers were delivered without a hitch. Staff welcoming, server Nicole Neumann friendly but not obsequious, and the Chef made us extra touches that were very appreciated, including an amazing, customized dessert. Prime steaks seasoned and cooked to perfection. The Generous Pour summer wine promo is a fantastic deal, seven moderate glasses of wine for $25, including a delicious dessert wine. Not rushed at all, classic steakhouse décor, with many private dining rooms along the walls. All in all, one of the best dining experiences we've ever had.

  • Anniversary dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 6/25/2014
    We selected the Capital Grille for our 26th anniversary dinner based upon my wife's previous dining experience with her workmates. The service and food were worthy of a special occasion. Similar is atmosphere to a Flemings Steakhouse, this location was noticeably more quiet which was a plus. While there are no scenic views, the layout allows for couples to have a fairly private dining experience. The wine list is pretty decent but as one would expect, expensive. For example, one can buy a bottle of Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc for about $10 at any grocery store. A glass of KC wine runs $11 at CG. You get the picture. Dinner for 2 inc tax was just under $200. Overall, a very pleasant experience!

    We needed a quiet and elegant dinner venue to discuss an important event the next morning. All six of us thoroughly enjoyed the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella appetizer, lox and capers today, and the very sumptuous bread assortment. Steaks were perfectly cooked. Service was perfect, our waiter was very respectful of the pace of conversation and let the fairly intense discussion flow...but was there immediately when we needed him. Being from Seattle, I needed a recommendation and was glad I took the advice. Highly recommend.

    Great prime steak location, and service is always top notch. If you are into wine, ask for the 'real' wine list. The menu has a 2 page wine list included, but they have another that has much more on it and some great selections.

    Capital grille is the classic steak and seafood restaurant: Quiet, dark wood decor, fine wine list, attentive service. My wife and I both had the Grilled Chilean Seabass. It was the best we have ever had, hands down. Cooked to perfection with a light broth than kept it moist, even with a light char crust. Lobstercrabcakes were also the best we've had, with amazing relish and sauce. We were blown away by how good this place was and will return to try the steaks.

    We took our son for his 20th birthday. The table was set up to celebrate with a card and the server wished him happy birthday several times. The food was excellent as it has always been and never disappoints. The server was great. My son was also served a special dessert tray with Happy Birthday written in chocolate. I would highly recommend this restaurant to celebrate a special occasion.

    Best Restaurant Week experience by far. Just business as usual at a premium location, with food, drink, and service all at the highest levels. No sense of industrial prep as at some other places, with a FABULOUS menu for RW that we supplemented with some indulgences (steak tartare, shrimp cocktail) we hadn't had in a while -- I'm still savoring the flavors! Service was professional and personal, just the right level of attentiveness and help with answers about the menu and wine list. And house-prepped, silvery-sided anchovies with the Caesar salad? Haven't seen those in years, one of the little things CG did so well. We will be back for sure.

    Did a “classic’ salad, steak, potato meal. And it was as good as it gets. Salads were cold, crisp and perfectly dressed. We both had the filet, served a precisely proper medium-rare. The cut was flawless and tender; the flavor outstanding. My companion and I both agreed that this was probably the best steak we’ve had in the Phoenix area, easily giving Durant’s, Donovan’s, Shula’s, etc. a run for the money.

    The highlight was Jorge our waiter. He is probably the best waiter we have had in Phoenix. Since this was restaurant week there was a set menu for the visit. Several great choices. I chose the 14 oz. Steak, my wife the 8 oz filet. The bread was good, the mash potatoes were very good. The salad was ok, just a fresh garden salad. I did not like the half cooked green beans, yes i know that is what everyone is doing but I don't like the taste at all. The desert, we chose the flower less chocolate cake. Excellent choice. Very good with a cup of coffee or expresso after the meal. This was a very nice evening meal for us and I will make The Capital Grill a choice for dining in the future. Again thank you Jorge for your great service.

    My daughter and I celebrated mothers day there unfortunately she just had oral surgery and we could only order side meals. There was a small glitch in the meal and our waitress immediately remedied and surprised us with no bill and a dessert. I have been to numerous 5 star restaurants when plenty had gone wrong with my meal and simply received an apology. Capital Grille Biltmore went above expectations and for that they will have my business forever. Thanks to our waitress and her manager.

  • Mother's Day Brunch Disappointment
    LuckyoneVIP
    Dined on 5/11/2014
    The 2013 spectacular Mother's Day buffet was replaced by a limited item, fixed price ($50) brunch menu. The delivered order of T-bone steaks and potatoes was in error. The steaks were overdone, cold and of poor quality beef. We ordered a side of au Gratin potatoes and were served lyonnaise potatoes instead. We sent back one steak and the potatoes, and the order was rectified, but the quality of beef was still poor. We ordered cocktails (at an additional cost) and no offer of an alternative beverage (coffee, tea) was offered. We had previously enjoyed several dinners at the Capital Grille, so this lack of food quality and neglect in the server's attention will definitely negatively impact our decision to eat there again.

    This was our first visit to Capital Grill and I was excited about the menu. Lobster eggs Benedict sounded wonderful to us. The bread basket was delightful, moist and delicious. We had the mimosas and although expensive they were very tasty. I was disappointed in the eggs Benedict, for the price it was just ok. The decor seamed really outdated and the carpet was filthy. I don't think I would go back. I was expecting something special and just got mediocre. The two of us spent $160 for brunch, for that price I would hope I would leave feeling better about the meal.

I enjoyed the signature cocktail with vodka and infused pineapple, refreshing. The Capital Chopped salad was a surprising delight, fresh, crisp and filled with ingredients that worked well together.

    We had Easter brunch here, our first Easter as a new family - and our first visit was an experience we absolutely loved! EXTREMELY friendly and attentive staff, from start to finish, it felt as if we were specifically being catered to. Though I never expect such attentiveness at any restaurant I dine at, their friendly table side chats were not suffocating or forced, and the food was a great mix of perfect presentation and exquisite taste. Even our 5-yr old had a wonderful time, and our server went out of her way to include him in course selection and conversation throughout the meal, to us this effort on her part was priceless. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone!
