Repeat visit to Capital Grill. The beef quality did not measure up to prior experience or our expectations. Bone on dry aged NY strip and the tomahawk veal chop were perfectly cooked but still overly chewy.

Great food.
Excellent service.
Nice surroundings.
Small bar seating.
Only complaint is that they moved us to a different table after we had been seated.
Would go back. It is quite expensive but serving are large and sharing was not an issue.

Our experience was awesome! Met friends for dinner. Food was great and service was impeccable. Immediately seated for our reservation by courteous hostess. Not inexpensive but every appetizer, entree, and side that we tried was excellent. Decent wine list and very solid choice for cocktails. In the former Frank Lloyd Wright archives facility so that gave the ambience a very specific feel. Great place. Allen

The evening started with us wanting to have a glass of great Chardonnay before dinner like we always do. Unfortunately we were told they were out of premiumt Chardonnay(Cakebread). Our server Joe M recommended the Patz & Hall which my wife declined but I had a glass and it was very mediocre. I would have thought a nice restaurant would have a Mer Soleil Reserve or Rombauer by the glass but they did not. The meals were great and our 2 glasses of 2008 Ch du Pape Beaucastel at $47 a glass were great. Our server Joe was very attentive and could see I was very disappointed with the chardonnay issue. Other than the poor chardonnay we enjoyed everything else.

NEW YEARS 2017. First time ever wasn't perfect after years of perfection. The restaurant invited us back to make it right. Will chalk up the experience to the holiday.I was called back and we spoke and was told how sorry they were. Perfect handling of the problem and we will keep this as our number 1 go to restaurant because of the extreme care giver re n to us as customers. All's well that as t ends well!

My husband ordered a bone in filet medium rare and it came to him medium. He reluctantly sent it back since he was paying so much for the steak. They cooked a new one perfectly, gave us a shrimp cocktail for his wait and did not charge us for the steak or the shrimp cocktail. Amazing service and the food was outstanding.

After all of my previous rave reviews of the Capital Grille, I am sad to report that our next upscale steak outing will be elsewhere. The service was a negative factor. Service should be seamless and the service called too much attention to itself. We were consistently interrupted at inappropriate times for check in, and food was delivered unceremoniously.

Wine- the printed wine menu was not updated to reflect contemporary prices and availability. Thus, the first bottle of wine we ordered had had a radical increase in price, so we chose a second option. That bottle was out of stock. 20-25 minutes after being seated, we still had no wine, and ended up selecting a fabulous bottled (Cade Cabernet Sauvignon- highly recommended), yet spending more than we would have preferred just to move past the selection process.

We thought that perhaps the management might offer some compensation for this inconvenience, yet received nothing beyond profuse apologies.

Steaks were great, as usual, and new field green and beet salad was a big hit. Yet, this is our second experience of less than superior service. For $500+ for 3 people, with no dessert, we are planning to try Mastro's for our next outing.

We celebrated a friend's birthday at Capital Grille. It was delicious and wonderful, as it always is and our friend was delighted. The restaurant was very crowded and we had a short wait, but the hostess found a quiet area for us where we could have conversation.

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.
