Not impressed as our table was not ready for 30 minutes past our reservation time.
Service was so slow and had to send back the food several times.
I am usually a big fan of The Capital Grille however, not this time.

One of the best dining experiences. Christopher was the best we have ever had. Every recommendation was spot on. He helped shape our trip with suggestions on what to do while visiting Seattle. The food was amazing, the service and the ambience!! Five stars all

Raw salmon instead of seared as listed on the menu. Fresh ground pepper never came. Stale bread sticks. For $37 salmon entree lunch is a terrible value. The entree already come with green beans but the waiter put in the green beans again for the entree side dish. How silly is that or at least ask the customers and point out that they could have chosen something else

Restaurant was not busy on the evening we visited. Service was very good and overcooked dry fillet steak was replaced without fuss.
Limited choice if only drinking wine by the glass
Enjoyed the dining experience but did not feel it was good value for money with bill of over $200 for just a main course and drinks

Food tasted great but meat was excessive (just too much). Ambiance a bit “American chique”. All in all fine experience for an evening but considering the price not a repeat candidate.

There's a reason I was looking forward to this dinner for 2 months: the service and the food are consistently on point. Not only are the food and wine delicious, they're reliably delicious.

Capital Grille dinner was excellent; the main course, appetizer, dessert were all outstanding. We were also impressed with the décor, the service, the ambiance and we liked the dark wood paneling of the restaurant. We are very selective and picky in our restaurant choices and have been to many highly-rated restaurants in Seattle only to ask ourselves what was the big deal. But not with Capital Grille. The outstanding reviews jive with our own experience. Our waitress Shantel was very professional and friendly. We will definitely be going back to Capital Grille when we want to indulge in a five-star dining experience. I also liked the background music and the noise level was quiet. I do care about restaurant acoustics and this restaurant fit the bill in that area. I would also take any out-of-town visitor to Capital Grille to impress them.

Visited Capital Grille for my Birthday dinner with 3 guests. Everyone commented on how really great everything was; from the time we sat down to the table festooned with gold star glitter it was just an awesome evening. From the local Cabernet, incredible calamari appetizer, amazing Entries that included Salmon, New York strip and fillet. The complimentary desert was (1 chocolate 1 cheesecake) delicious and plenty to share after dinner. I have been to the other fine steakhouses in Seattle but never had a better experience!
