This Capital Grille South Coast Plaza Never disappoints. You will love the food, atmosphere and over all experience. If you can, ask for Andre. He’s one of the best servers in Orange County!
The Capital Grille offers a great experience in fine dining in a superb setting. The service is always excellent and the food choices are really fabulous. This last visit we had steaks that were perfectly cooked and flavorful. Over the last 5 years or so it has become our go to place for special events in our lives and the restaurant always acknowledges with thoughtful gestures and free desserts.
The Capital Grille has been my special occasion's restaurant for years. You come for the food but return for the service. Top notch on all levels.

Amazing experience and great service! Alex was very attentive and was able to help create a dish on the spot to meet our needs. Love this place.
Our favorite spot when coming to South Coast! Never disappoints. Highly recommend the ribeye steak sandwich... you won't regret it! (w/ the parmesan truffle fries)
Excellent food and outstanding service! Plan to return soon.
It's Capital Grille....they always deliver. Exceptionally professional staff top to bottom and food defined perfection. We were only disappointed by the number of customers inappropriately dressed for such an upscale establishment. I wish they would enforce a dress code.
We celebrated thanksgiving dinner which was better than we expected. We had a full plate of real juicy turkey, stuffing, green beans, cranberry sauce, and mashed potatoes. We also ordered a side of mashed sweet potatoes. Everything was delicious and portion was enough to take some home for lunch tomorrow. The price was also less than expected. Capital Grille never disappoints.
Food was not 100% worth the money. Portion of meal was small for its value.
Four of us enjoyed celebrating Thanksgiving by having a turkey dinner at Capital Grille. It included turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy and green beans. Excellent! Service was a little uneven.
Party of six for Thanksgiving dinner. Ages 3 to 71. Everyone loved it! Caleb our waiter was there when we needed him.
Great experience! Delicious cocktails, well executed appetizers and soups, perfectly cooked proteins, and delectable sides! What more would you want!
My wife and I had a truly spectacular visit and cannot wait to go back for another night out.
Had a lovely thanksgiving dinner there with my son Daniel. The bar area where we ate had a great table for seating. Service by Jade and all others was wonderful. Everyone was in very good spirits despite needing to work on a holiday.
Service was good food didn’t compare to your Ft Lauderdale Capital Grill your prices were higher and my lamb chops were tough
My boss was celebrating his 35 wedding anniversary, left a message with their names. The whole time they were congratulating the wrong person. Sad that who ever greeted them did not took the time to read their names.
Service was excellent, food always good
Chad our server was awesome!
Excellent classic steak house with a great choice of American meat and seafood dishes, very attentive service, quite lively on a Saturday evening and we had a very good table in the more quiet section.
We where there celebrating my girlfriends bday. Excelent service and food . Thank you
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING FROM BEGINNING TO END !
Wonderful service. Phenomenal steaks. Coconut cream pie was excellent. Sides were really tasty. Old school.
It was my sons bday, Andres was our server and he was wonderful, the food and service was fantastic!!!!
Food was great! Jamie did a wonderful job educating on all that the menu had to offer. Highly recommend this location.
We had a lovely time, party of five for a birthday. Service was excellent. Food was delicious. Little touches like handwritten birthday note and confetti on the table show this place cares.
We celebrated a retirement lunch and our server was the best. It was the best table service that I had received in the last two years. He was attentive and surprised our celebrant with a dessert plate that had “Congratulations” in chocolate on it with champagne for the table. This was all such a nice touch. This was my first time dining at Capital Grille but will definitely be back soon. Thank you so much for making our celebration memorable. I wish I could recall our server’s name, he was a lovely Frenchman.
