Delicious food as always. Great service as always. Chef came out to speak to our two young girls and gave them a chef's hat. They've always loved Capital Grille, but now they love the staff too, and we appreciate the personalized attention. No dessert anywhere can beat the coconut cream pie. We come in specifically for that!
this place never disappoints, service is superb.
Wonderful, as always. One of our very favorite restaurants!
We celebrated my mother’s 98th birthday and had lunch. We were in the boardroom and Mike was our server. The service was excellent and could not have been better. My mother had the sea bass with a side of mashed potatoes. She doesn’t eat much but almost finished everything! The bass was cooked perfectly. We also had the salmon with tomatoes, capers and couscous, the lobster salad, aged New York steak, cheeseburger and the crispy chicken sandwich. Everything was delicious. My favorite was the lobster salad. Big chunks of lobster! Mike graciously gave us dessert. We had the cheesecake, creme brûlée and flourless chocolate espresso cake. Not one bite left!
Family went to theatre then dinner.
I enjoyed the personal touches of the hand written card for the special occasion. The food was delicious but it took a while to come out.
It was a great experience. Good service. Food was great. Not to noisy. I like that. We will go again.
Awesome as usual. My wife and I go every year for our anniversary. The staff always remember us and make the evening special. All of the food items from the sides to entree's are excellent. Highly recommend!
Meat not properly cooked. Took 10 minutes to get servers attention. Requested medium temp and it came out cold. Other persons meal was correct but it took another 10 minutes to get my meal cooked properly and everyone else concluded their meals before I received my meal back. When it came back it was dry and overdone so I did not eat my meal. Server's apologee was minimal and no consolation was offered. Mgr came by to ask me how I was enjoying my meal and did not recognize that there was a problem until I told him I was not happy and his response was "I heard you food was a little cold" and made a comment that the was sorry but no discussion about expediting food, or comping the dish.
Capital Grille made my birthday special. Not only was the service excellent (Savannah so gracious), the food was awesome! The special treats a plus.
Good vibe and courteous service . A little pricey but it’s a higher end place
We normally love, love, love Capital Grille and we needed to celebrate a birthday that fell on Mother’s Day. The restaurant was louder than normal and the service was okay. I was sitting in an isle and was probably bumped a 100 times by wait staff and support staff running by. It just wasn’t the best experience. But, I know it was a holiday and we will go back.
Always a great experience at Capital Grille! Fantastic staff and Executive chef Chris Hutton is a great chef!
Our go to spot to Mother’s. The only let down was not having their bottomless mimosas. They stopped having it this year.
Wow. First time here and every detail was perfect. Our waitress was on top of it, sweet, helpful, and let us sample a drink we were unsure of. The bread is fresh, different and we couldn’t stop
eating it. ! First, lemon drop martinis, Yum!
Our steaks were flavorful, tender and the mushrooms delicious.
Lobster Mac and cheese, calamari, lobster bisque, creamed spinach, we loved it all! We will be back!
A very nice restaurant with good food and great service. Be sure to make reservations as it gets very busy. There is a patio available which is a nice option during the summer months, and a back room which is a good choice if you are wanting a less noisy atmosphere. The bar area has limited small tables if you prefer to enjoy the happy hour. A good selection of seafood and steaks, the sides are extra. We appreciated that we were not rushed through our meal. A great predictable solid restaurant in the South Coast Plaza area.
Another outstanding experience at Capital Grille South Coast Plaza. We celebrated my husband's birthday there last year and they remembered that and had confetti on the table awaiting him this year. We were treated like returning family by everyone and given a complimentary birthday dessert large enough for the four of us. Food was top quality, as always. Loved the lobster and crab cakes and the sliced filet mignon with onions and mushrooms. We will definitely be back!
The service that we received by Eugene Kim was impeccable. He was extremely kind and attentive the entire time. I was extremely impressed and went on to tell many others. Thank you for the great experience Eugene!!! We will definitely be back.
I had lunch with my Father and once they heard we were celebrating my birthday, they brought over a red long stemmed rose, table confetti and a handwritten birthday note! I also received a celebratory plate of desserts with birthday wishes and a candle on the plate. I've never been to a place that took that much detail for a birthday and I've been telling everyone about it ever since!
Great experience...lots of great attention to detail.
Birthday dinner for father. Nice dinner good food. A little on the pricey side. Great for special occasions or if you have an expense account. Valet is validated so have them park for you.
The service was exceptional. Jarvis made us feel like valued customers! All the lunches were perfect.
Great food, fantastic atmosphere and tentative staff. Enjoy celebrating special events with them.
The food was awesome and the service was excellent, very attentive but not obtrusive. We had a wonderful dinner.
We celebrated a birthday and they made the day more spectacular with the way our table was set, the dishes were delicious, service was very on point.
Eugene is a great waiter very attentive and remained this way during the evening.
Our waiter seemed to be over whelmed. Took drink orders and disappeared forever. Finally got them after we complained. I’ve been to capital grilles all over the country and this was the only one I was disappointed with. Appetizers we cold ( lobster crab cakes ). We’ve had them over 6 times at other restaurants in the country. Lobster Mac and cheese not as much lobster as in other restaurants we’ve been to. The best that kept par with all your other restaurants was the filet. Not sure why California with so many restaurant options you think you’d try to keep up with quality of other restaurants. Will not go back to this restaurant. Still plan to go to the one in NY later this year. I really like the food that is served at this restaurant. Hopefully NY won’t disappoint
Enjoyed the attention given by our waiter.
The service and food were great, I would highly recommend this restaurant for business or personal occasions.
Had set lunch. Great value, large portions, excellent food
Overall our experience was great. Our steaks came out medium rare rather than medium. The service is great. A server at another table was a little too loud and talked way too much. I don’t need to know your life’s history.
The restaurant turns their lights down way too low. Ambiance is one thing, but I’d like to see my family’s faces.
The lobster Mac was outstanding. The asparagus was a little too woody so it was sent back. We enjoyed the tuna tartare and calamari. The wine was excellent and referred to us by our server.
We’ll be back.
Hands down my favorite Steakhouse in Orange County. If you want amazing steaks and genuine service, this is the place to go. Be sure to ask for Tommie, this guy is a server extraordinaire...the best!
Very good Easter Prix Fixe. Many selections to cover everyone. The wait and support staff were excellent. We will definitely be back.
Easter Brunch food service was great, even with so many people,
Easter... Lindsay was impeccable.:. Lobster frittata divine, great drinks, one of my favorite places.
Server David is awesome!! Food was delicious.
Tim Barber was our server. He made this evening memorable. Exceptional service. Dinner was on point!
Our anniversary dinner was made very special!
Our table was decorated with heart confetti and a sweet card. Our server Joe was just the best.
Our food was delicious and dessert a special treat!
Thank you for a lovely evening. 💕
