I have eaten at many Capital Grille’s across the country. This is the only location I have ever had a issue with. Saturday nite was my second and last. I was the host of a party of 8. We were seated at a table steps from the kitchen. It was so loud at times we had to pause our conversation.
This is a terrible location for a table. The restaurant should eliminate it. I can’t imagine anyone having a pleasant dining experience at that table!

I was celebrating with a friend (steak snob, foodie) in from out of town who had never been to CG. She’s been listening to me go on and on about CG and how we always regret when we stray and go other places. I was hoping it would be the quality of food and service we have come to enjoy and expect. It was perfect! She was very impressed with her food as well as the extra mile they went to make me truly feel special.

I was meeting an old friend for dinner . We wanted to take our time. We first ordered a really nice bottle of Champagne it took a while to get it so we decide to order a cocktail while we were waiting. They did not have the Champagne that was on the menu. They suggest something else it was fine. We ordered the largest lobster tail they had 3lbs! I was so excited to see the lobster and there presentation. My friend did not want any steak so I decided to order a filet mignon bone in med rare. The food came seem to come rather quickly. We were so disappointed they took the lobster and chopped it up into little pieces and served it in a bowl!!! It really didn't look like 3lbs! They even gave us the lobster crackers to crack the shell Then they took my stake and cut in half and gave it to my friend. We never said we were going to share it. I guess they were assuming. I go to Capital grill a lot and I know this was a very expensive dinner. But they missed the mark on this dinner. I was totally disappointed!! I have never had a 3lb lobster chopped up and served in a bowl. :( sorry for any typos!

We took my sister to the Capital Grill in Scottsdale for her birthday. The staff was wonderful, and they had decorated the table with tiny Happy Birthday confetti. We ordered the lobster bisque and the lobster salad. Both were absolutely delicious, and the birthday desert was sublime. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion or just to celebrate being alive.

Our server, Gio, was absolutely wonderful! It was a special occasion and he made us feel very special. The food was great and we had a lobster roll served in a different manner than the menu suggests. We love the option of Lobster rolls for lunch as it is a treat an not often found in Phoenix. The restaurant gave us complimentary champagne and the waiter took several photos of us. Plusthe table had rose petals and confetti on it and a nice greeting card!

My wife and myself went there for our wedding anniversary and it did not disappoint! It was during Arizona restaurant week which made it affordable. We plan on going back again but we will have to save up a bit considering the normal prices. The service was second to none. We can't wait to make it back and we will be requesting Eric as our waiter again.
