We ordered the mushroom bisque which was delicious and the last food delivered by our waiter in addition to our cocktails. We ordered two side dishes and one large steak To be sliced and a special request for bernaise. The food was delivered a second waiter. He put it on the far side of the table and disappeared I waited there with my mother thinking like at Morton’s, Ruth Chris or The Palm someone would be back to serve us from the serving dishes since were not dining at Denny’s. My mother is 88 years old and cannot serve herself. We were sitting more than an arms reach away from the food I never saw our waiter again and our food was getting cold I I never saw the second waiter again. I got up and I picked up the dishes and I served my mother as a waiter should have served us. The waiter walked by as I stood there with a serving dish behind my mother serving her and he did not offer to help. He came back by and offered more cocktails but did not ask how we were enjoying our food that we had just served ourselves. The next time we saw him was did you leave any room for dessert Which we declined and then 5 minutes later the check.
I might have forgiven it if the restaurant was busy but we were eating at 5 PM before going to the theater. The capital Grille was not yet busy. Service we got was as if I had gone to Chili’s. The service was not on par with the restaurant and I would’ve been very angry if this waiter worked for me.
It was my twin’s 18th birthday. Everything was perfect - the table had confetti and a rose and cards for each of them - super sweet! The food was amazing - as it always is - and our waitress was excellent. Definitely recommend!
Excellent service and meal. Each of the four of us ordered a different item. All were described as excellent with a nice presentation. We will return for dinner as well.
Always good food with excellent service (ask for Bonnie).
We came for a special birthday. After a hiccup at the front desk, the general manager saved the day and gave us the table that was requested. They had a long stem rose on the table and a happy birthday card. Very classy touch. Our server, Bonnie, was so great. Attentive without being fussy or pushy. She gave us great ideas on what to try.
The executive chef came out to introduce himself and gave us an amuse bouche with smoked salmon. Lovely one bite surprise.
The lobster bisque was not as flavorful as I would like but okay. My New York strip was cooked to perfection. We added asparagus and au gratin potatoes to share. Both were delicious. Bonnie brought out a fabulous dessert tray with an assortment of small items to try. Flourless chocolate cake, cheese cake topped creme brulee style and a dollop of whipped cream. Top notch.
I love coming here for the consistency of good food and service. The front desk staff needs to be elevated on how to properly handle guests when they are super busy.
We will come again and try some new things and hopefully we can have Bonnie be our server again. Thank you, Capital Grille, for making a memorable birthday dinner.
The food was amazing. Friendly service. Great experience
Have been here several times and, in the last year, patronage seems to have been down, so getting in has not been a problem. Friday 2/15/18, was packed, service was good and thankfully noise (no music) was minimal. My pet peeve is going to nice restaurants and you can’t carry on a conversation. Get the foie gras, best appetizer not on the menu and, in fact, we plan to go back soon just for that reason. My date had blue cheese steak and I had the steak & lobster tails (yes 2 tails) and good food for the price. We passed on dessert only because it was standard fare, nothing different; chocolate cake, flourless chocolate, ice creams, cheesecake. If Capital Grille would update their dessert menu, it’d be a triple threat, fois gras appetizer, steak & lobster and splendid desserts. We also had the wedge salad and thick cut truffle fries.
We were celebrating my birthday & my Dad's 80th birthday. Patrick was our server & he was superb! Top notch service! Went above & beyond superior customer service & went out of his way to make our evening special. Will definitely request him on our next visit.
Excellent food always and service.
We had a 10:30 reservation for Valentines Which was also our 6 year anniversary. We arrived @ 10:10 & had drinks at the bar & we were seated at 10:40. my companion and I were having a nice conversation enjoying our drinks and starters when the waiter ask to take our order. We told him to give us a few minutes and he advised us the kitchen would be closing. We were shocked. We ordered the food and the lobster came out ice cold in butter that was gelled back together because obviously it wasn't prepared fresh. We also ordered the lamb it was cooked to perfection . But We basically was rushed out the door on Valentines Day. :-(
Place was amazing, from the moment you walk in. Until you finish your meal.
Great Valentine's dinner...
They only disappointment is they took Chilean Sea Bass off the menu. I went there for Chilean Sea Bass. Nor sure I'll go back unless it's put back on the menu. I'm sure my comment won't even get a second thought but that's typical. No one ever looks at these things.
I love everything about Capital Grill. Always Excellent!
Valentines dinner. Although busy, we had an early reservation allowing us to be seated at a great table. Our server, Chris was incredible! Food prepared perfectly (try the bone in filet). Ended with a great coffee and delicious double chocolate cake for desert. The entire staff went out of their way to ensure we had a great experience. We did. Our first time here but not our last!
It was good, just need new menu items
Delicious lobster salad
Our waiter was outstanding. Made our evening most enjoyable.
Andrei was very nice and the service was excellent.
Very expensive, very small portions - the $12 soup cup was smallest I’ve ever seen same with $20 sides. the food not great . Place looks outdated and was almost completely empty
I was extremely disappointed booking this place-this was a business dinner , at $120 a head my clients looked hungry walking out. The $70 wine tasted worst then some $5 bottles.
Service was patchy , they stoped filling water cups, unless you paid for bottled water.
Always excellent. Usually get a dry aged steak, but opted for a sliced fillet dish. Haven't had a bad, or than great, meal here yet.
Only our 2nd time here. Food is AMAZING, especially the bone-in filet.
Lunch date with my bride.
Everything was lovely. Our server, Chris, was very attentive. The ambiance felt like New York or Chicago fine dining. My only criticism: The rolls being served with our drinks were a little too hard, as though they had been microwaved rather than warmed in an oven.
The food is outstanding served in a beautiful restaurant with 5-star service. Can’t be best.
If you haven't yet been wowed by the class of a restaurant, most restaurants will pale in comparison from this point forward, and if you think you've experienced the best, you probably haven't been here yet. This one will be worth whatever you pay. Extreme luxurious food options perfectly made, posh comfortable atmosphere, extreme perfection in service, dress, personality such that you wonder if they know something about your posh empire you don't actually have. If you have a special occasion, and they know you're coming with that special guest, Capital Grille has a touch I've never seen before as your table is already prepared in a way you wish you had done yourself. Highly recommended.
Great steaks, good wine selection, great deserts . Service was good given its a high end restaurant. Good for special occasions and conveniently located in South Coast Plaza. The only negative, it’s expensive!
It was amazing! From the food to the staff!
EXCELENTE LA CARNE Y EL SERVICIO.
Excellent as always. A bit pricy,
and that may affect future dining decisions
