The Capital Grille - Costa Mesa Ratings and Reviews
Food outstanding place clean no Clorox smells price a bit high but worth it problem we have been pegged to sit at a particular table all the way in the back when we have said not once not twice but several times and it is stated o our open table suggestions we prefer to sit where there’s ambiance - I hope this issue has been resolved
The food was excellent! Had the filet and the porterhouse ! Both were perfectly done . The lobster bisque was excellent as well. The deserts we enjoyed were the coconut pie and chocolate cake both were great! I will say the wine Captin recommended a good wine and the waiter was above average and made the dinner more enjoyable! He was an outstanding at what he did!
Capital Grille is a shining star in a sea of local restaurants. It is a wonderful dining choice anytime you want to eat really wonderful thoughtfully prepared food. Anytime you want to feel like you are the only ones dining in the restaurant, they care for your needs and never blink an eye at a request. I will recommend again and again.
Jake and his assistant Grant took very good care of us, and couldn't have been more attentive.
Our lobster salad was just crammed with lobster meat, and we loved the double chocolate cake for dessert. Although I wish there had been a Christmas tree, there were some elegant and tasteful decorations before one entered the dining room.
I took a large group (15) to dinner. They put us in a private room and they were able to adjust the music level which was great.
Service was great with Jack leading the way with two others helping.
Food is what I’ve come to expect from Capitol Grille and was consistent. Unfortunately they overlooked (medium well to well done) my steak twice. The third time was Ok but I think the chef erred on the other side and the steak was cool in the center (almost rare).
In any case, they comped the steak and the rest of the evening was a hit.
Great All American Fine Dining. I had only been for lunch and that was fantastic. Of course going for dinner is very upscale dining with the typical Seafood and Steak options. Everything was very well done and Perfect. Our waiter was on top of things and let us take our time with our meal. A Very enjoyable evening.
Love this place. Excellent cuisine and service. We took our son here for his birthday. The table was set festively with a sprinkling of party confetti, and Son was presented with a delightful plate of small desserts with a candle. There was even a handwritten notecard on the table expressing birthday wishes from the staff.
Came here for an anniversary with my girlfriend and am absolutely satisfied with the restaurant. From the moment you walk in, the unique dim lighting creates a romantic ambiance. The waiters are very professional and charismatic. The food is absolutely delicious! My girlfriend and I has a filet mignon and beef tenderloin and were in awe by the taste and tenderness of the meat. Delicious and just completely satisfying. The table we were sat in was neatly decorated with a happy anniversary note and a beautiful rose. If that’s not enough to set the bar, the restaurant gave us a delicious complementary chocolate with ice cream cake to celebrate the occasion. Best restaurant I have ever been to.
