As usual, a great meal in a great restaurant. It's hard to believe this is a chain restaurant. Best steak in Orange County with top notch service and a lovely wine list.

Our first restaurant we went to after quarantine and we couldn’t have been happier! Amazing waitstaff ... hostess and even the manager stopped by to ask how we were doing. I had the filet and my hubby had the dry aged steak... both were beyond good! This is the place to go in the OC for perfectly cooked steak and lobster Mac n cheese!

Food is amazing, always!! I got Salmon that was cooked to perfection, husband got the burger. He didn't share a bite so it must have been superb! I always want the Lobster Bisque (Winter, Spring Summer or Fall) and it never disappoints me. Even though they had just reopened everything was perfect! Jeovani was fantastic. I think I will ask for him every time I go! I love that they know how to help you celebrate big! Love so much that I'm going back in a few weeks.

We first were led to a table next to the kitchen. After objecting we were led to a table in the middle of walkway. We then asked to be put in the back to an acceptable table. We were, but lesson learned. We are regulars but booking on open table just got us no where. This was not because of Covid, it was a restaurant choice. Why do you seat in bad tables when you have other options?

I know the restaurant just reopened after a long closure due to COVID-19, but the quality of steaks were unacceptable. They were super dry and had zero flavor... I'm guessing these steaks were in the freezer for a long time. As a regular, it was very disappointing.

It was OC Restaurant Week, so the value was very good. Overall service was good. The only negative we have is the size of the side dishes. They were much smaller than served at other restaurants. The steaks were very good and plentiful. Will return

My husband and I love capital grill but our experience on Saturday, 3/14/20, wasn’t as good as prior experiences. My filet mignon and mash potatoes were salty. We ordered the creme brûlée cheesecake for dessert but were told it was out once desserts arrived and were given the chocolate desserts instead. We didn’t even touch the deserts because it wasn’t what we had in mind.

There are many fine restaurants in Orange County. Would you have Tim Barber as your server it makes it a dining experience. This is why we come to the Capital Grille.
