I’ve had dinner at this location a few times but tonight was way off and I won’t be back. Hostess and seating was unacceptable after being left in the middle of the dining room. My business colleague was embarrassed and things didn’t start off well. I ordered the shrimp cocktail which was embarrassingly rubbery and tasteless along with a 10oz filet that had to be the worst cut of meat in my 40 years. The wine was good but the food was awful. This location is nothing like the Seattle location which is truly a 5 star establishment.

We celebrated our April birthdays at Capital Grill. Mike S was a wonderful server. He had my husbands beer already chilling in a chiller. The table was decorated very pretty. The apps and dessert were a great touch. Can’t wait to dine there again. Absolutely wonderful!!!

My only criticism would be that the service was a bit slow. It took us 2.5 hours to get out of there, with long periods of just waiting.

The waitress was fabulous. She stopped by our table at just the right times to check on us, to get another drink, remove plates, etc.
The salmon, green beans and asparagus were delicious.
The room was exquisite as there were just a few tables and the noise level was not not a problem.

Had our anniversary dinner there and it couldn’t have gone better. From our greeting and table decorated with a rose and card from the staff. To our server Todd who made great suggestions to the amazing food. And an anniversary dessert to top it off. We’ll be back and tell anyone who asks they should pay Cap Grille a visit.

We were 100% wowed from beginning to end! There was confetti & a signed birthday card on our table upon arrival. The service was superb, every detail attended to. Our wine was outstanding. They were flexible with the menu. We both ordered steaks & they were both the best we have ever had! I even added a scallop to my meal. The truffle fries were excellent as well. They brought out a gorgeous dessert on a plate that had “Happy Birthday” written in chocolate on it. All of it was beyond amazing! I’d highly recommend this restaurant.

The hostess was rude, ignored us, made us wait for ten mins to be seated while she and coworker gossiped- where we could see them talking. Then lied to us saying the wait was bc I submitted a table for 2, even though we could see on her sheet it said table for 4. Asked to speak to manager - he arrived when our business meeting guests arrived and was dismissive, arrogant and embarrassed us in front of clients. Waitress was very loud and extremely rushed and frazzled even though not many people were in the rest., never checked on how our food was, if we needed another bottle of wine (which we did). Had to flag down help for water glass refills. Food was great but bc of the extremely poor customer service and focus we will never go back. Our check was for over $600; unacceptable service experience for the amount of money we spent.

A bit pricey but the food was delicious and the service was amazing. Worth every penny. We were celebrating a birthday and the table was tastefully decorated when we arrived. Since we weren’t drinking, I’d provided a bottle ahead of time for toasting. It was waiting for us, on ice, table-side. Our server, Jason, made our experience unforgettable. He was very attentive without being intrusive. Also really patient, offering great suggestions for the meal. There were nice touches such as switching our white napkins to dark ones automatically, so as to avoid lint on our dark clothes. It was a great evening for our party of two.

For dessert we had a rum infused caramel coconut cream cake. All wonderful Our waitress Courtney was a delight! I highly recommend this place. And they have an extensive wine selection! Pricey but worth the splurge!

I have given several weeks to write this review. I received an email from the owner to fill out survey, which stated at the bottom that each one is read. I filled one out but have yet to hear back and thus the review.

several weeks ago, I had a business dinner with one other person and during dinner, a bottle of wine was ordered. Not even a third into my glass of wine, the server accidentally spilled the wine all over me and my coat. He was very apologetic and helped me clean off my sweater and coat and then the table.

Once everything was cleaned up, I told the server, no problem, accidents happen. Needless to say, my sweater and coat were wine stained. He did offer some cleaning wipes and offered apologies again.

However, close to a full glass of wine was spilled and no offers to replace the glass of wine was made.

Given the level of quality of this type of restaurant, I would suspect that the glass would be replaced, in the minimum, and the manager to at least drop by to check in, both of which were not offered.

I did not mention anything during dinner, wondering if something would be taken off the final bill, which it was not. Nor did I make a big stink of things because it was a business dinner.

So, in the end, I was left covered in wine during a business dinner, minus one glass of wine and a dry cleaning bill for a sweater and coat, all without a manager dropping by to see if everything was ok.

like I said, I filled out a survey that the owner emailed to me without any response for over 3 weeks.

I’ve been to Capital Grill on several occasions. The food is consistently good. Unfortunately, the kitchen is consistently slow. Service on this occasion lacked attention to detail and the server seemed to have been trained well in food selection steerage. In addition, the final bill had to have items removed that we did not order, but were charged for. It might be awhile before we select to dine at this steakhouse again.

Food was good. Server was ok my boyfriend didn’t want a large meal so when he asked the server for different salads she assumed we were looking for lower price items by pointing out the cheaper things in the menu. Which kinda upset him a little, she also wasn’t really knowledgeable we with us basically just told us to read the menu. Overall the food was good, just wish we had a different server.

Would recommend with the reservation that the meat of 2 diners was not what was ordered. A well done order was red in the center and a medium rare lamb order was red/purple throughout.
