Great service. Loved the food. Best Chilean Seabass.
Celebrated our anniversary - thank you for making it extra special.
Glad to be back and dining at one of my favorite places. As always, the service, food, and ambiance were terrific.
Everything was perfect for our first date back. Tables were separated accordingly and we felt safe.
First time going out since restaurants closed. Everything’s was perfect! Steak and lobster both cooked perfectly. Great service too. It was very quiet since they had just reopened.
Professional and cordial waiter
By far the best steak in town and the service is fantastic!!! Lovely place to celebrate anything special
It was OC Restaurant Week, so the value was very good. Overall service was good. The only negative we have is the size of the side dishes. They were much smaller than served at other restaurants. The steaks were very good and plentiful. Will return
My husband and I love capital grill but our experience on Saturday, 3/14/20, wasn’t as good as prior experiences. My filet mignon and mash potatoes were salty. We ordered the creme brûlée cheesecake for dessert but were told it was out once desserts arrived and were given the chocolate desserts instead. We didn’t even touch the deserts because it wasn’t what we had in mind.
Always good food and great service! Keep up the good job.
Just a very nice restaurant, high class, comfortable, excellent service, great ambiance,
Ambience and services are amazing! I tried restaurant week pre-fixed course lunch menus. It was delicious.
There are many fine restaurants in Orange County. Would you have Tim Barber as your server it makes it a dining experience. This is why we come to the Capital Grille.
Best stake meal i had. Service was excellent.
OC week deal was every worth it.
Everything from the Hostess to the food to the service was a 10!!!
Excellent, efficient service, steaks fired as ordered. Came for restaurant week lunch, so good value as well.
Bernadette McNichols, our server, and other help staff were very efficient and pleasant.
Cap Grille is one of the most consistent and dependable restaurants: consistently good food and dependable good service. They never seem to fail to deliver.
Amazing experience! Table was decorated and included a card and rose, food was outstanding and was a time to remember.
Had the tomahawk pork chop, possibly the best pork chop I have ever eaten. Wonderful food and ambiance. Professional staff.
We stopped after the theater. We were early and before our reservation time but we were seated right away. Tim greeted us right away and as usual we had excellent service. Tim made some suggestions and we ordered our meal. Everything was delicious & cooked well. Kona crusted filet and filet Oscar. So good.
I visited The Capital Grille for O.C. Restaurant Week. The menu choices were very good and we chose to upgrade our menu options. Everything was excellent. The Rib-eye steak was cooked to perfection and the wine pairing and dessert was all fantastic. The service is exceptional and I look forward to another visit.
Wonderful Sunday Lunch!
Everything was perfect, the food, the service! Tiffany was great! Thank you
Everything thing was excellent.
Wonderful place to dine.
The waiter Jonathon was outstanding, very attentive. The food was amazing, one of the best seabass dishes I've had. My husband's steak was cooked perfectly too. Overall a really nice evening.
The food is amazing, with such a wide selection.
There were 5 couples. One couple sent their food back. Not until we walked out of the restaurant did people start saying how disappointed they were. About 3 out of 5 were unsatisfied
Food is amazing, as expected. What takes this place to levels above other restaurants is the Customer Service, from the hosts, bartenders, to wait staff, the busboys, everyone! Their attention to detail, knowledge of food, never feeling rushed, and atmosphere makes me want to choose this place for all our special occassions. Well done!
The food was excellent! I have never had a bad meal... Ever. You basically can’t go wrong with anything you order but the lobster bisque was available this evening which was a special treat... it’s phenomenal! Jill is amazing... we will definitely go back just to visit!!!
This is my family’s place to celebrate special occasions and sometimes just because it sounds wonderful. I’ve never been disappointed and our latest lunch was no exception. I ordered filet mignon and my Aunt ordered the sea bass. Both meals were cooked to perfection. Also highly recommend are the Stoli Doli. These martinis are pineapple infused and sweet and refreshing. Service as always was top notch. For a special occasion or “just because” do yourself a favor and choose Capital Grille
Fantastic as always. Haven’t been there in years, so great to be back.
Our waitress Cairin was amazing and very attentive to our needs and 3 year old.
Fabulous food, service, and ambiance.
We had a great birthday dinner.
The hostess was welcoming and we were seated right away. When we sat down, the busser came by and quickly offered water. The waiter offered beverages and brought the wines immediately; however, his service and attention declined once his friend was sat down next to us. We were ready and placed our menus on the side but we were ignored while his friend and his date were able to place their order. Their appetizers and entrees came out before ours. We were more impressed by the busser, Mario, and how attentive and quickly he was moving.
Overall the food was well executed, stand out was the ahí tartar which was very tasty. Steaks were cooked to the requested temperature and the birthday desserts were nicely presented.
Excellent experience as always. Thank you 😊
Superb all the way around; service, food, setting. Thank you!
Fabulous ambiance, food, and service. Ample parking. Everything about the Capital Grill is excellent. Our server Antony Bouchez was very attentive to our needs and knowledgeable about the menu items.
As much as I wanted CG to be awesome it was everything but.
The only thing we had that I would say was actually good was the calamari. The lamb chops were mediocre but there was a lot of them. The Kona rubbed steak was tough and was not delicious. The shrimp appetizer was tasteless. I’m just glad I brought my own wine otherwise the bill would have tipped over $1k. Take my advice. Go to Morton’s or Fleming’s or any other steakhouse unless you’re just dead set on paying way too much for a mediocre meal.
I will say our waiter did a fine job, otherwise it would have been 1 star.
It’s just not good. Quite frankly I don’t know how this place stays in business. Definitely not from repeat customers.
Excellent, very competent server! Excellent booth and ambiance! Love the classic steakhouse decor!
