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.

Overall good experience
it should be noted my Filet arrived under cooked and just warm.
A new steak was prepared and it arrived overcooked but I ate it to avoid more delays.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
