This place never disappoints. The absolutely best in service. Reliably great food with warm and accommodating staff. If you’re looking for a place to impress a client or for a special treat, this is a great choice.

Best steak and seafood in Seattle. Ask for Carlos Romero to be your waiter. Excellent service! Knew every detail about the menu, wines, cocktails and history of the restaurant. His attention to details was outstanding. Plus surprised us with a special anniversary dessert and tour the wine cellar!

At 1 p.m. on a Wednesday, I made reservations for a table for 11 on that same evening. They made it happen, providing great service and outstanding food. Pricey but worth every dollar. The 10 oz filet was THE best steak I've ever had, anywhere.

A busy place, a little noisy. Steaks were very, very good. Service was very good, but waiter seemed to forget us after meal was served... e. g., a long time to get extra glass of wine.

Expensive but an excellent meal.

Absolutely wonderful! I did some research online of great quality seafood around downtown. This place was everything I was told. Great atmosphere, lovely staff, and excellent food. The brioche bread is warm and gooey, don't miss it. I had a cup of clam chowder and my meal was the scallops. I honestly got the cup of chowder thinking my scallops would be small and I'd be hungry. These were the thickest scallops I've ever had! Very clean, prepared to perfection. Warm and carmelized with the perfectly prepared asparagus and mushrooms. It was so good I'm tempted to go back again tomorrow.

It was our first time trying Capital Grille, we had heard good things though.
The rumors were true, this place is wonderful.
The best scallops and lobster we had ever eaten.
I got the tenderloin and lobster. The tenderloin was nothing to write home over, but it was tender and not bad.
The lobster was the most flavorful and succulent I’ve ever had. It was absolutely sensational .
Definitely not some where you want to go if you’re on a budget.
Would definitely give it another try, great place, and Great service.

We could not be happier with our experience. The food was perfect, the ambiance was lovely. Our waiter was very friendly, knowledgeable and professional as were the hostesses. We drove up from Salem to see the preview of Austen’s Pride and decided The Capital Grille would be the perfect pre-show meal. We very well found a gem in Seattle. We will be back!

For celebrating my best friend”s 30 year wedding anniversary, I carefully picked up Capital Grille and ordered 2 fillet mignon per good review on line. But it is so so disappointing. The surface of beef was charred and bitter. The inside was extremely dry and tasteless(not even the original taste of beef). We barely ate half. I really could not understand why such a high end and highly rated restaurant could cook such a bad meal, worse than any street side stand. I also heard the neighboring customer complaining about the beef they ordered. I only complained to the waiter quietly because I did not want to make a scene to spoil the occasion and the service was quite good. I am definitely a picky person or particular on beef but this is the worst steak I have ever had, let alone costly.

We enjoyed a very pleasant dinner at The Capital Grill. Nice warm atmosphere and beautiful decor. Our server was attentive but not overbearing, I had the NY pepper steak and it was cooked perfectly and very tender. My wife chose grilled halibut and she was very pleased also.
