It was extremely noisy. The house special salad was way overpriced and buried in dressing. About twice needed. Three of us had it and all thought the same.

Best service I've seen in Scottsdale in a long time. The wait staff made you feel really welcome, not like they were doing you a favor to wait on you. Lovely ambiance. The menu was diverse. I ordered the "Lobster Roll" which was only O.K. as the roll was dry and over toasted. It overpowered the fragile lobster. My friend fared better with the "The Plate" of a couple of sliders, etc. The ice cream was totally melted on the "Chocolate Lava Cake". All the same we will go back and try again.

Came in from out of town on a group golf trip. Wanted to go to a great steak house. We definitely found it! The service, food, STEAKS, sides, desserts, wine and cocktails were top notch. There is nothing that they could improve on from our visit.

Cocktails and service are always on point here. Lobster mac and cheese is the best in town. Cheesecake with a cookie crust is amazing. We do however feel steaks are sub par to others in the area.

My husband and I always have a wonderful experience at Capital Grille in Scottsdale. Oscar is a spectacular bartender, Eric is impeccable at dining service & wine recommendations, and Saul always makes sure that each table is tended to. This restaurant has a great team whom all work together. Great job!

Granted we went on thanksgiving to avoid a big family meal or a hotel buffet but this was unlike any capital grill we have been in before. First it is solid in the burbs and you will see all types of people including people wearing shorts and T-shirt’s - no dress code?

While we were having drinks at the bar we saw how crazy the main dining room was with all kinds on kids running around etc. So we ask for a table in their bar/lounge area which appeared a bit more romantic, smaller, etc. They were nice enough to accommodate the request.... then promptly sat a family with a baby at the table next to us... at 8:30pm. Who has a small child and baby out so late? Of course you can imagine what happened next. As the parents tried to get loaded the kids were antsy and the baby was off and on crying. We had a miserable time. No one apologized or offered to move us etc.

Last thing was general service - awful. We had to flag someone down a few times and never knew who our actual server was. No one came over and introduced themselves, etc.

So overall a bad experience but what makes it worSe is we would most likely never visit a capital grill again in any city.

Food was good quality if that helps.

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 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!

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!
