Diner Reviews
  • "As always, every detail of our dinner at Capital Grille was perfect. The wine, the food, the ambience, and the ever-extraordinary service made our anniversary celebration another delightful one. We love to go there for special occasions because the food and wine always exceed our expectations and they always add complimentary little extras that put the evening right over the top. But, to be honest, we never need an excuse. I recommend this establishment without hesitation or reservation to all of our friends with a love of superb food and wine and an appreciation for truly outstanding service. Go. You won't regret it."

  • "Our entire experience for my friends birthday luncheon at the Capital Grille was absolutely lovely, fantastic! They were so attentive and did many "extra" things to make her day special; free champagne toast, rose petals sprinkled on the table, took a photo of our group and gave everyone a copy and finally, an amazing sweet desert that said "happy Birthday"!!! Awesome!"

  • " We were celebrating my son's college graduation and he requested Capital Grille. We weren't disappointed. The service was outstanding and so was the meal. Our server was very attentive and informed us that some high-end wine was half-price that evening. It was very good and worth the price. Our table was decorated for my son and they gave him a complimentary dessert. All in all a great evening at what is becoming my favorite Scottsdale restaurant."

  • "Another great dinner with great service at Capital Grill. We had a combination of different menu items from the bar menu to items to share. All delicious. The Lollipop Lamb Chops on the bar menu are a great choice especially if you are looking for a lighter dinner. You get four lamb chops that are perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious!"

  • "We went here for our anniversary and were blown away by our first visit here. Rose petals, a personalized card, delicious meal and finished with a complimentary dessert made this a night to remember. We highly recommend the calimari, filet and lobster crab cakes. Definitely a "10" from two picky guests!"

  • "Had a business mtg and dinner. Were in a quiet area (they have some nice rooms for mtgs) which was perfect. Sarah our server was never intrusive and provided spectacular service during the mtg and at dinner. The food was excellent as always and Brian the managing partner stopped by to make sure everything was perfect. This was our first business mtg here and after this experience we will definitely do it again"

  • "We have dined at Capital Grille several times before. We had never ordered the Delmonico steak which the server said was their most flavorful steak. She was right. It was terrific. If you add grilled asparagus and french fries (without the truffle oil and parmesan cheese), it was a great dinner. The shrimp cocktail to start was as good as it gets. A really fine dinner. Pricey? Yes but a terrific treat."

  • "We were four people who went for the Arizona Restaurant Week Menu and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent. Our only problem was that the appetizer was brought out before our drinks and we had to send it back. The waitress put our order in before she brought us the drinks when she should have done it afterwards."

  • "Was seated outside as requested. Wait staff was very inattentive as far as refilling drinks and checking on us prior to meal arriving until after comment was made upon return to table of " we thought you got lost"."

  • "Took a party of 6 for my birthday, it was outstanding! Decorated the table, people stopped by to thank me for sharing the evening with them. And the meal was excellent, had the 14 oz sirloin crusted with Kona coffee, really good."

  • "The value is wonderful and the service is always good but this year, it missed the mark in 2 areas. Four of us ordered the restaurant week menu and all had the same steak. 3 had Caesar salads and one had the onion soup. We were RUSHED - we didn't even finish our salads and out come the 14 oz steaks. Our guests were not happy to have the wait staff stand all around them while they finished their salads and immediately place the steaks in front of us. Secondly, the side potatoes and string beans were enough for 2 people and certainly not for 4 people. We decided to ask for our desserts to be served later so as to enjoy the rest of the dining experience."

  • "Had the Kona crusted steak. Excellent! She had the filet. Great until the end when it was under cooked. The sides are a la carte and NOT amiy size portions they list. The coffee espresso cake would put a chocolate lover in a coma. They can't make a cup of coffee though. The "tar" at my office was better. "

  • "I had been to the Capital Grille before in another city and knew it was good. I knew I wanted a good piece of steak and that is exactly what I got - the 10 Oz Filet Mignon. Since I was having dinner alone (as I was traveling for business) that is the only thing I ordered although the waiter did accomodate for half an order of fries as I knew I would not be able to eat all of them. The portion was perfect, it was cooked to my liking and since I chose to have dinner outside, the weather was accommodating as was the scene. "

  • "Beautiful place. Elegant. Clean. Food arrived cold. Sent lobster and filet back. Potatoes cold. Forgot my beverage comped one brunch and beverage but we anticipated world class experience. They need new coffee. Tasted flat. Don't think we'll go back. "

  • "Absolutely Fabulous! Everything was great, no complaints here. Great service and great food. The choices on the special Mother's Day menu were plentiful and the portions large. Everything was prepared perfectly and delicious starting with the bread basket which we devoured 2. It was definitely worth the price. We will certainly return!"

  • "Several months ago my husband and I visited CG on our anniversary, which they asked about and we told them. When they took us to our table, there were red rose petals strewn about the white table cloth and all the staff acknowledged it in a subtle way. We were offered a wine special that we purchased ($100 bottle even at the special price) and we were brought a nice few small bites of dessert. We were so impressed we decided to go back for my birthday as I love the filet and lobster entre. They did not ask us about the occasion, they did not offer any of the special wine selections and because of the difference in wait staff we had, it just was not the same experience at all. I realized how much the staff adds to the experience."

  • "Mike K. Provides the best, most consistent service which is much appreciated. Even on a busy Saturday night, he pays attention to details and ensures a quality, memorable dining experience. Plus, even though it's a steakhouse, they have several wonderful vegetarian options!"

  • "We had dinner with relatives from the Midwest. A bit nervous if this would be a good fit. THEY LOVED IT!!! We've been here often and have a routine for the two of us, since we are not enormous portion people. We suggested the sides be enjoyed family style and they picked out their main course without our interference. We did suggest the mozzarella, tomato, basil, balsamic as a salad and ordered 3 orders for the 6 of us. They have better tomatoes in the Midwest than Arizona, but they were amazed."

  • "We had Sara as our server and she was attentive without hovering and paced our meal perfectly. We started with calamari which was cooked perfectly. We then split a chop Salad. The hamburger with truffle fries was almost to big to get my mouth around. We had a great wine that Sara suggested that went perfectly with our meal. Added to that we had a great table and were able to watch two basketball games at the same time. It couldn't have been more perfect "

  • "The Capital Grille is an example of old world excellence from the way you are greeted at the door till the server brings hot hand towels to the table after the meal. Once seated, you are quickly asked if you are in a hurry. If you are, the staff is professional but the food is brought to the table quickly and efficiently. I recommend going when you have time to relax. We spent 2 1/2 hours for lunch and enjoyed wonderful service, exceptional soups and specials and a lovely bottle of California Chardonnay. "

  • "The food was made to perfection. It was disappointing to learn that some of our favorite sides have flour added (gluten) like the creamed spinach. The server was very awkward and nothing like the professional servers that work at the Capital Grille in Mn."

  • "Ate in the bar so that we could watch some games. I guess we weren't the only ones as the bar was almost full. Had a great meal and the service was fantastic. Sara was our server and she paced the meal perfectly so that we didn't feel rushed. We really enjoyed ourselves and they've got succulent crab legs (they well even open them for you) :-) Just another fantastic meal with excellent service"

  • "My husband and I dined Capital Grille to celebrate our 5th anniversary. Upon arrival, the host greeted us with "Happy Anniversary" and led us to a table covered with rose petals and glittery hearts. A personal card was written to us as a thank you for spending our special night with them. Dinner was fabulous, ambience of the restaurant was quiet and enjoyable, and our server was very helpful in selecting entrees. Lastly, a desert and champagne were given to us as a special treat. We will definitely return"
