This is our favorite restaurant. It is a fantastic deal during "The Generous Pour" when you get to taste 6-7 wines for $28/person with your meal. Not small pours, but good size pours that can be refilled to your heart's content. Definitely a time to let someone else do the driving.
While all Capital Grille's are nice, the staff here in Scottsdale are as good as they get. It starts with Brian, the manager, who engages with all his customers, who loves to talk wine, and who always makes sure your night is special.
The steaks of course are always fantastic. This is not an inexpensive restaurant, but when you want to treat yourself or a loved one, this is the kind of service you should expect when you are paying that much for food.

What a wonderful experience at the Capital Grille! Megan outdid herself with attentive service. The filets were marvelous, as always, perfectly done with that delicious char on the outside.

We wait every summer for The Generous Pour. If you enjoy wine, grab an Uber and head over. Seven yummy wines, from sauvignon blanc, to rose (!), to chardonnay, to pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon (2), and a wonderful blend. This year the wines are all from the hand of Dan Duckhorn, who obviously knows what he is doing. For $28. with your meal, taste them all and select what you would like more of- and enjoy!

One of the more expensive places to eat in town and has that feel of a elegant steak house from the minute you walk in. Food is presented very well, and of course their steaks are beautiful cuts of meat, however I found my steak this night a bit over seasoned, but cooked perfectly medium rare. appetizer favorites are the steak or tuna tartare, and the beet and goat cheese salad is always nicely presented and ample for two Service is attentive and knowledgeable.

The Wagu beef special was delicious and cooked to perfection. They always do a great job here although ne sure to bring your wallet. The only not so positive comment is that the noisy and hectic dining room makes it difficult to carry on a conversation.

The service and ambiance were great. We had the perfect table in the corner, it was not too loud and we felt like we were in a place for fine dining.
The food was good but unfortunately not great. Nothing was bad my wife and I just found several dishes under whelming, especially for the prices. The steak (filet) was delicious but the lobster bisque, lobster mac n cheese and Brussels sprouts were all just ok. The first two lacked flavor to me. This is not so much a complaint as it is just a statement of how disappointed we were. I do not want to be mean but honestly, for the price, I would recommend Steak 44 or Dominick's over Capital Grille.
I almost forgot they were very nice and gave us two birthday desserts which were both delicious. The desserts and the steak were on point, which I would imagine are the most important items to many people.

Always a hit ! Again Loved the steaks, & the lobster bisque is to die for have it in the bowl for $15!! Both my friends & I love the fantastic bread basket it is wonderful with European type breads. If you have a special meal Capital Grill is the place to go, great table setups for that special event like birthdays, anniversary's! The water glass is never empty, The Glass of Wine & Wagyu Burger Deal with Truffle fries offer is great at $25 Hurry it only runs for part of the year. Their Kona rubbed beef is killer, hey get the truffle fries by themselves they are to die for! Capital Grill Scottsdale Location is type of restaurant you will Love every time!

Capitol Grille is a white tablecloth, high end restaurant. The food is wonderful, the service impeccable, and the ambiance is lovely. My favorites include the Lobster Bisque and a Stolle Dolee from the bar. Stolle Dolee is a pineapple infused vodka served martini style.

Went for 6th anniversary. Service was on point and the atmosphere was romantic as they had flower petals and a card waiting for us. The food, nothing really to write home about. Our thing is trying new steakhouses frequently and this was the first time at Capital Grille. We've definitely had better steaks at some of the other steakhouses in town.

Overall, I would definitely recommend trying it at least once.

Our waiter Joe McFadden was professional and courteous. He was sensitive to our culinary needs. He would check on us often enough. We celebrated our anniversary and the seating was in a back room in a corner, private and not noisy. There was an anniversary card on the table as well as hearts and rose petals on the table. Classy. We had excellent choices on the menu as it was restaurant week. Joe recommended the dessert coconut cream pie to share. Excellent choice.Terrific place to celebrate a special occasion. Highly recommend. The restaurant also has complimentary valet. Especially appreciated a visit from Brian Schwartztrauber, Managing Partner stopping by the table to make sure our dinner experience was satisfactory. Enjoyed the special personal touches this restaurant does like calling ahead of time to remind you of your reservation as well as follow-up call the day after to ask if everything went well.

Once again the front desk welcomed us in with a smile, and had us seated right away.
Daniel A and his team gave us a minute or two to settle in, and then delivered service that would be very hard to top! Our meals were prepared and presented perfectly, and thoroughly enjoyed! A wonderful experience - Well Done !!

Wonderful service on the patio today and in the bar area from Mary. Always looking forward to the fantastic bread basket with Europe style hard breads. Great lunch menu with unique specials during spring time this year. Try the patio for lunch or dinner during the cooler time of year here in AZ. We loved having a few cigars on the patio with my friends and family!
