The Capital Grille - Phoenix
Book your next event with us
Came for restaurant week. We brought a couple of friends that had never been and really talked this place up. We’ve been here multiple times and this experience was by far the worst we’ve had. Usually we come to Capital Grille because the food and service is impeccable, therefore the price is well worth it. Unfortunately this time was very different. The steaks were medium rare instead of medium plus. They were still bleeding - all three steaks. The waiter was very busy and seemed flustered. He didn’t do much as far as service goes and it felt like we were at a subpar place instead of an upscale restaurant. Very disappointed.
We were celebrating a birthday. The seared ahi tuna and lamb chops were outstanding. The dirty goose martini was perfect. It was all topped off by our extremely competent and friendly waitress Margaret!
Server was great. Food was good as usual!
Absolutely outstanding!!!!! Excellent wait staff and cuisine top notch. We just wanted a nice meal out and were well rewarded. Thank you!
It was fantastic. Steak was perfect. Lobster Mac was amazing. Ambiance was fantastic. I will definitely return
So delighted to have the worldclass Donovans team appear here. The food is even better....we are now converts thanks to Brett and Shay.
The food was good. We started with a sea food platter with lobster, shrimp, and oysters, fresh and delicious. Next was a wedge salad which was ok, nothing special. I ordered the sliced filet with mushrooms and onions in a fig sauce. The filet was cooked perfectly and the sauce was excellent. My companion had the NY strip pepper steak which he enjoyed very much. We had the chocolate cake with port soaked cherries for dessert, and it was very good. The wine list is on a computer tablet, easy to navigate and each wine had a helpful description. Our waiters were very friendly and helpful with ordering, never seemed rushed or impatient.
We were seated right away for our 7:30 reservation in a section that had 10 or 12 tables, all occupied. When we received our entrees, all but one of the tables had cleared, and the last party besides us was just leaving. As soon as that party was out of the room, staff started stacking chairs and moving tables. They weren’t making a lot of noise, but it was very distracting and sort of made us feel that we needed to hurry up and get out of the way. The meal without gratuity was well over $400 but I felt like it was closing time at Chili’s.
Table with child seated across from us was very distracting.
We had a great server Ken. Have been here many times. Consistent. Great food. You get what you pay for.
What a great place to celebrate! Wonderful attention to detail!
The Capital Grille is generally our go to place for special occasions. On this visit they really made our Anniversary very special. The food is always great, and the staff is always friendly, professional, and attentive. We asked to be in Ken's area, because he is a fantastic waiter, and very knowledgeable about wines. So it always fun to chat with him about various wines and wine regions.
Again, it was a very special and enjoyable evening! Thanks!!!
Coco was our waitress and we had a phenomenal meal! We have never been to this location, but it was amazing!
Brandon was perfect. We had an exceptional experience and we will be back again. (Brandon shall be requested for our waiter). Thank you for the wonderful time. Capital never disappoints.
We always enjoy our experience, great food and service, one of our favorite places in Phoenix.
Birthday lunch with generous Pour! Great food and experience. Second year and was as great as last year. Thank you, Katie!
It was excellent!
Wonderful, personable service
This was a repeat visit as the restaurant has become one of our favorite laces to dine. It is consistent in its quality and service. I love the white tablecloths, the excellent utensils and the efficiency of the wait staff.
Sent back two dishes. Quality and service has gone way down. Probably will not be returning.
Our waiter Rocco, was outstanding. The food was good, but was a little over priced for the quantity that was provided on the plates. We were surprised at how loud the restaurant. We do plan to return to The Capital Grille at least one more time.
A great experience and we had the Generous Pour, which I highly recommend!
The Capital Grille is absolutely amazing. Our table was ready when we arrived for a 30th anniversary dinner. The manager, James, met us as we were seated and had a bottle of champagne that our niece and nephew had ordered for us on ice at the table. He also stopped by from time to time to make sure everything was perfect. There was a rose on the table and the table was decorated nicely. Our waitress, Co Co was very attentive and went above and beyond to meet our needs. She was truly one of the high points of the evening. The food was phenomenal, as usual. Our dry aged steaks were perfection. You could cut them with a fork, they were so tender. The potatoes au gratin and French beans were great additions to the meal. The ambience at The Capital Grille is always very nice, subtle and elegant. We ended the dinner with coffee and dessert that was a treat from Co Co. Anyone looking for a great place to take someone for a special event, or for an excellent place to conduct business should definitely consider The Capitol Grille. You won't be sorry!
Rocco is the best! Great job. Remembered us from the last time and knew what we wanted and went out of his way to make our evening special
Asparagus was served cold. Filet medallions were an off color and had an odd flavor and was dry. Didn’t taste like beef. Steak was also not hot and served on a room temp plate. For an odd reason, a very large party was seated right across from us even though the entire restaurant was empty. Really ruined my anniversary dinner. :<
Awesome, the service was great, the food was really good, the company was amazing.
The absolute best restaurant in Phoenix...bar none!
The service is always second to none. It’s quite an experience.
My experience was absolutely incredible! My husband and I went to celebrate our wedding anniversary, they made us feel very special and loved. The food and service was also better then I could have imagined! Outstanding! 🥰🥂
Just excellent !!!!
Incredible service and food as usual. We live in Vegas so that is our usual joint. I love the consistency of the service and food at all locations.
Our server Bryan was very prompt and friendly. Kudos!!
Everything was perfect. In a word - exquisite. We will return in the near future.
Always very special in every way! Everything was perfect‼️
Shay our server was excellent‼️❤️
Always an amazing experience! It's hard not to over-eat at The Capital Grille. It's a great meal with wine pairing.
A little disappointing when (after calling to alert the restaurant that we’d be a little late), we arrived 15 minutes past our scheduled reservation, and, despite the main dining room being at least half empty (with many empty booths), our party of four was shoehorned into a smaller room and seated next to a large and noisy party. Fortunately, they left about halfway through our meal. Our server Kenny was great, and the food was very good. I suppose it’s more efficient as the evening winds down to consolidate new arrivals, but I think a top-level restaurant should be more attuned to its patrons’ experience than its own expediency.
Birthday celebration and The Generous Pour!
