Our group of three couples were out in Scottsdale for the Barrett-Jackson auto auction. Our last night we had dinner @ The Capital Grill. Our waitress was outstanding( I can’t remember her name 😬), we were seated at s round table( I love round tables) in the corner of the bar. It was a perfect spot for us, the guys had a tv to watch the auction on and it was a quiet corner to be able to talk.
We all had drinks, salads, steaks and three sides to share. Our server plated the sides for us. It doesn’t sound like a big deal, but it was nice instead of us passing heavy side dishes to each other. I’ve been to many steak houses and this is the first that offered that to us. It was nice and we appreciated it. We also had 2 wonderful desserts. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meal and will be back in March😊

We were seated in the "kids" room - where they put people with kids or who aren't dressed nicely, even though my husband and I were on a date (no kids) and were going to a concert after (dressed nicely). Worse, for the first time ever at a Capital Grille, my steak was overcooked! That has never happened at ANY CG before. I probably won't go back to this one.

Exceptional Food, Exceptional Service-
We had dinner with our family on a Friday evening. The food was absolutely wonderful...really magnificent! The steaks were superb and ranged in delicious choices. Every member of our family thoroughly enjoyed their meal and ambiance of the Capital Grill. We look forward to returning again and again.

Capital Grille was aware of our special occasion and had flower petals spread across our table. That was the extent of their “special” service. Service was good but food was just ok.

Too loud. Can’t be responsible for a loud talker but it would have been better if she wasn’t there. Kitchen was loud too.
Would have preferred the music being a bit louder so it would drown out the clatter.
Food was good but expensive as expected. Would have enjoyed the food more if the ambiance was better.
The service was superb

Anniversary lunch. Wife and I dine here for special occasions (or anytime we can make an excuse to go). Food and service are always top-notch.

Calamari and lobster bisque appetizers were fantastic. I’d say the lobster bisque was the best I’ve had. Entrees were equally good. Salmon Oscar and Filet Mignon were cooked to perfection. Complimentary champagne and dessert, along with the incredibly attentive service and personalized experience made this another anniversary to remember.

Thanks to the entire staff at Capital Grill Scottsdale for setting the bar for fine dining.

This was our first time visiting this location so I had high expectations. Thought the ambiance was fantastic and the music was great.. We were visiting for my wife's birthday celebration. The service was incredibly slow. This is perplexing as they seemed to be well staffed for the night. We had a party of 3 and it took 40 minutes to bring our appetizers. Once our dishes arrived the shrimp and steak were overcooked with a rubbery texture. Overall I wasn't happy with the food and was surprised as it was not consistent with my experiences at Capital Grille.

This would have been 5 stars across the board but the bartender service was terrible. Yes it was New Year’s Eve however the bar was packed which I’m ok with but only 2 bartenders and one was playing bartender, waiter and busboy for those eating at the bar. It was chaos. There were many frustrated people standing and trying to get the bartenders attention. They wouldn’t make eye contact or even acknowledge you were there. I was not alone. Gave up and we went and sat by the railing seats. A waitress came over and saved the day. Ive been to many upper end steak houses across the country this experience at the bar one of the worst. My question, on one of the busiest nightS of the year . . . Why only 1 1/2 bartenders ? How about 2 bartenders and a bar back?

Once we were seated everything was great. Service was awesome and the food excellent. I had the twin African lobster tails which were extremely tender and flavorful. My partner in crime had the Swordfish which was amazing. Side dishes Mac & lobster and truffle French fries were perfect. Great food and service in the restaurant and we all had a wonderful time.

Great experience!! We were there on New Years Eve at prime time for dinner. We were seated right at our reservation time. Excellent service & highly recommend. We went to another high end steak house last year for New Years Eve & waited over an hour past our reservation time because of their overbooking & poor management.

Capitol Grill does it right!!! Highly recommend for special occasions or just a night out.
