Bummed our waiter never told us about the specials. We over heard the waiter at another table welcome guests and go over some history, menu highlights and wished he was our waiter. We had already ordered and felt like we were just not getting the service other tables were. Our steaks were delicious but we can get that anywhere, we go out to eat for the experiences, especially since my husband came to meet me In Seattle while I was here on business.

We always love this restaurant and in fact held our wedding dinner at the Minneapolis location. This time was not as good of an experience. They forgot about us while we waited and took several tables in ahead of us that arrived after us. manager did follow up well though. And then, marked us as a no show on open table after spending $350. Kind of a bummer.

Pretty disappointed because I told the restaurant it was my boyfriend’s birthday, they asked for this name and said they would do something special. They took us to a room in the back of the restaurant and I see several birthday cards in tables for OTHER parties but nothing on ours. The table next to us also received some sort of dessert for a birthday celebration but we didn’t receive anything. I mentioned it afterwards because I know my boyfriend felt awkward and the waiter asked why didn’t I let him know although I let the staff know when I called. Additionally how would you recommend that I signal to you that it’s his birthday without him knowing??? I guess he will never know what he missed but I was pretty annoyed that they missed that. Overall he enjoyed his dinner.

The food and service were great. Sound and light were perfect for a romantic dinner. The only thing that went wrong was forgetting to give us the appetizers leftovers but that is not a big deal.

Our waiter, Matthew, was very attentive to timeline (we had an 8 PM performance to attend at the 5th Avenue Theater). Each course Matthew served us was timely and exquisite in preparation/presentation. The Kona-rubbed NY Strip was delectable, the beef tenderloins with lobster tails were expertly prepared, and the veal was so tender as to cut with a fork. The truffles fries were the perfect balance of salt and truffle, crispy and hot. The atmosphere whispered of an earlier era with all the charm and refinement often lacking in other establishments today.

I chose this place for its atmosphere on our 20th Wedding Anniversary. The wait staff was phenomenal, the food was good and the price was the only downside. I have had the same level of food at cheaper places. It was good just not worth the price. Our waitress was great, thanks.

Steaks badly prepared, no service/attention - generally just a bad and very, very expensive experience - so no more visits to the Capital grille in Seattle for us!

Great place, GREAT service - you can't beat that- every one there has amazing sense of service - you feel special with them. USually I go there for work but yesterday I went tehre with the family, it was great. Kids enjoyed themself so did my wife.

Their soup / wine / steak / dessert are to die for. The oyster was not that good (maybe it was a batch issue) and their coffee was sub par.

Overally, it is a great place to dine. But let me stress it is very expensive. A family of 4 with 2 kids meal / wine / appetizers / main course / 1 wine / beer + dessert ~ 200++. So ... :) but love the place. Might go there with family once a while ..

I was looking for a classic steakhouse experience while visiting Seattle from the Midwest. Every dish was decent but came up short of my expectations. Great service, good atmosphere,
The garlic prawns were not as fresh as I expected, the iceberg wedge lacked sufficient bleu cheese and bacon, the au-graten potatoes were ok. The balsamic reduction sauce seemed to overpower my medium well done ribeye steak, which was prepared according to the chefs recommendation request. These typically come out med rare at other restaurants so I probably should have asked how they are typically prepared at the Capital Grill. I will find another steakhouse the next time I visit Seattle.

The service and food were stupendous. The only knock was the price. Yes downtown Seattle restaurants are getting spendy, but the least costly glass of wine was $11, with most in the high teens and several above that. Nonetheless, if your wallet can take a beating, the food was exquisite and the service was the just the right amount of attention.
