I will start by saying if you are just wanting a steak it’s pretty good. For the price it is so not worth it!!!! Weak bartenders good cocktail list but bartenders can’t make the drinks, I asked for an old fashion I got a glass of whiskey with a bunch of ice and maraschino cherry , the kiss of death for a bartender a place like that should make an great old fashion. Appetizer were weak not a place for foodies at all prosciutto wrapped mozzarella was the worst and they don’t care you don’t like it. Food is good if it was at a bar and grill and priced that way I don’t get the prices and the service a very dated experience . Servers said the same thing to every table very blah. The place lacks personality. I will never go again I feel I got robbed in a way because the price was so much and the food and experience was underwelling.

Food was really good and our waiter, Chris was wonderful. My husbands one complaint is his JB Black on the rocks very skimpy at $14 - compared to the many other places we dine at the drink failed considerably. We both had steak and shared potatoes au gratin and asparagus - delicious!

We have been coming to this particular CG for many years. This was the worst meal we have had. Everyone has a bad day - this was theirs. Will try again of course. Sad that it was a monumental birthday with such a sad experience.

We went specifically for the lobster roll and we were disappointed about the order.
It was not as good as the last time. It was chopped up too much without the usual creamy sauce.
We will probably not return for this special meal.

Enjoyed Capital Grille, as always, and Joe was a fantastic server. Not sure how they make the caesar salad SO good, but I wouldn't miss it. Butternut squash soup was yummy but could have been served a little hotter. I had the filet which was extremely flavorful. Spouse had the bone-in filet and said that mine was better and his was not worth the extra charge. We had the green beans as a side in order to avoid the cream in the creamed spinach. Missed the creamed spinach. Must say that the bread was wonderful as that it always important to me when dining out. There was a special on the Emmolo Merlot. We are huge fans of Emmolo Sauvignon Blanc. The Merlot improved with age but I don't think I would order it again. It was fun for a change, though.

This was my second time dining here and it was amazing as was the first experience. I was running behind so I phoned in to make sure my reservation would still be available and mentioned at that time that my wife and I would be celebrating her birthday. When we arrived they escorted us to our table that was decorated for the occasion. The food was incredible as was the drinks and they also took a photo of us and printed it out to remember the experience. I was surprised to have received a call the following morning to follow up on our experience. Top notch and can't wait to return again! Thank you for making my wife's birthday so great!

Absolutely awesome. We had the Wagyu and wine combo which was soooo good. They are doing this special until 11/17. We are going back and try a different burger, and the truffle fries were delicious. We love this place, the NON smoking patio is so nice. Perfect service.

One of the TOP restaurants in Town - can not believe we have visited many of the other steak locations around, Mastro's, Preston's, Eddie Merlot's, Dominicks, etc and The Capital Grill had the best staff by far!! We were celebrating a birthday and we walked in to a decorated table with personalized menus, followed by champagne, dessert, and a printed photo of us taken at the table. The absolute best customer service and awesome food!! Joe our waiter was superb!! We all had steak n lobster tails with some yummy sides...everything was wonderful! Went Sat nite 9/30/17 and will surely be back! Thank you Capital Grill for a truly terrific time!

Capitol Grille is a go to for steak, chops, and in my case for this dinner I chose the rock lobster. It is not a norm for me, I usually like their lamb chops best, however our group went for the steaks and chops and so we shared. We had the house salad which is always fresh and shared a side of the fresh green beans which were sautéed. We started out at the bar and the birthday person and I had Kier Royals which were done perfectly.
For the Grande Finale, they brought out a lovely plate of desserts with a bottle of Prosecco to finish the celebration. The Prosecco by the way was excellent with dessert

The Capital Grill in Scottsdale, AZ is the finest Capital grill I've been to. The staff is always friendly and courteous and manages to make my occasion special, even if my teenagers are throwing tantrums about being dragged to a nice meal. The servers and server assistants are always on their game. I am not sure how this place is so well managed, however, they make it look easy. I'm sure its very difficult to keep such a great staff. Their food is quite good, although I have to admit I've been so many times, I grow a little weary of the same menu items. Fortunately the staff can mix things up and produce almost anything on their menu in different combinations.

Example, I had a wagu beef burger and lobster tail. WOW what a combo! That should just be a thing on their menu :)

We came for our 9 year anniversary and also for the Arizona Restaurant Week experience. This was our second visit and the experience is just awesome. The service, the food, everything was outstanding. They really know how to take care of the customers. We will be back!! We are both full with the amount of food we received each and can't believe that it was 44 a person.

Excellent experience. An elegant but comfortable atmosphere . Please try the lobster mac and cheese it will not disappoint.

One concern is that we felt rushed toward the end of our dessert. We were asked if we wanted another cocktail but did not offer coffee with our or after our dessert. Overall will definitely return to meet up with friends or for a special occasion.

Always have a great experience at Capital Grille. We were lured in this week for Restaurant Week- a fantastic value at $44. Enjoyed a wedge salad and a caesar salad, and both ordered the filet, which was perfect. The prixe fix included yummy sides as well as desserts. Especially recommend the Joseph Phelps' Pinot Noir which was an excellent value.

Service was slightly off the usual high mark. Our server was clearly less experienced and the pacing less than ideal. Don't need to ask how the meal is 3x, and please wait until after we have swallowed the first bite of food. I'm sure he will improve with time and training.
