    When I asked my sons where do they want to eat for their birthday, they said, "CAPITAL Grille!". This may be the best steakhouse in the OC, and I include Ruth Chris and Mastro's. Everything was cooked absolutely to perfection. Chad and the team provided great service. A memorable night.

    Consistently great food and service. The background music was quite loud - even for an early dinner. Once the place got crowded, all the noise level went up, making conversation a little more difficult. Other than that, enjoyable as always.

    Autumn was our server and her crew assisting her was above and beyond! They were all making sure we had cocktails refilled, water and enough bread. They made sure our appetizers and the rest of our order was served to us simultaneously and was hot. Food here is always perfectly hot and DELICIOUS! We always come back to this restaurant and in Las Vegas they have Capital Grille across from Wynn Hotel and Casino. Quality of service and food ABOVE and BEYOND !!!! A must!

Our food was perfectly cooked and very delicious! Thank you for the special touches, rose, confetti on the table, glass of champagne and complimentary dessert.

    We loved everything... from the wines by the glass to the appetizers to the entrees! Superb service, elegant dining room. The only bummer was my Aunt left her wallet. It was mailed back to her minus the $300 cash inside it.

    It was our 20th anniversary and we went to the “Generous Pour” everything was great and we enjoyed ourselves. The staff was very accommodating , I have a large upright walker and help me get to our table and stored the walker while we had dinner then brought it out and help me maneuver through the restaurant, the restaurant was very wheelchair/walker accessible. ,
