We have eaten at Capital Grille many time usually before attending the Seattle Symphony. We can normally get a reservation even on a Saturday night which is sometimes difficult at Seattle downtown.
My only complaint is the excessive prices even in an expensive city like Seattle.

We had a wonderful meal at Capital Grill. We were celebrating my husbands birthday and they went out of their way to make our dinner celebration special. They had a card waiting and confetti on the table. It was really nice. The service is impeccable. I look forward to going back the next time we are in Seattle. The crab cake appetizer was the best I have ever had. They also brought a dessert at the end with Happy Birthday written on the plate. Very classy. I highly recommend.

The food and drink are great at Capital Grille here in Seattle, but it's GM Charlie Stauter and his excellent staff that puts them at the top of our go-to restaurants list.

We dined at Capital Grill prior to attending a musical at 5th Ave Theater. Staff was friendly and considerate upon entering. We told our wait person that we were going to a play and before asking for our order we were asked what time we wanted to leave in order to get to the theater. Service was great, food was outstanding and atmosphere calm and relaxing. Well worth a visit.

Firstly we have been coming here for our anniversary for the past five years and have had wonderful experiences. I brought my daughters here a year ago and we only had a few appies and cheap bottle of wine and they treated us like royalty. Amazing service. This last time on our anniversary food was great, service wonderful but the table we were sat at for our anniversary was so close to the kitchen. I am a little surprised since we made the reso six months ago. Figured we would get a private little table away from the noise and activity of the kitchen like we have had in the past. We were going to ask to be moved but we hate doing that. Quite disappointed when they knew it was a special occasion. Table was set for it but just no ambience. Too bad cause everything else was really nice. I am thinking they maybe had another table set for us but it wasn’t available when they thought so they substituted it instead if making us wait. As when we first arrived they said the table wasn’t ready but we were barely seated at the bar when they said our table was ready. Next time we will ask for an intimate table. Loved the first year when we got a table at the front section by window.

It was just ok. I don't know if it was because it was Valentine's Day or what. The service was wonderful but the steak I ordered was medium and not medium rare which is what I ordered. The lobster was chewy. I normally would have said something but I didnt care enough to send it back. It was still food but not great! I won't be going back.

Capital Grille is one of our favorite restaurants in Seattle. Our dinner this week was no exception. The service was outstanding from beginning to end; the food and wine were exceptional; and the overall classy environment keeps us coming back.

Well, it is very pricey, no doubt about it. You wouldn't choose it for a casual lunch. But it has the right ambiance and atmosphere to make an event/meal special. The food is above average, a little on the heavy side, very traditional. But sometimes that's what you want...

Matthew went above and beyond to make us feel like we had his full attention as a server. He was extremely professional and warm throughout the evening. We were celebrating Valentine's early and he was instrumental in making our experience private and intimate.

The desserts really sealed the deal for this to be an amazing meal, save room for the coconut cream pie!

What an amazing dinner experience we had! The filets with their signature “Kona rub” were tender and bursting with that dry age flavor. The sautéed spinach is delicious done in extra virgin olive oil and garlic , and light! The loaded baked potatoes also a treat !

We had the pear and Gorgonzola salad - glad we split and it was delicious . Had the Mark Ryan Dissident wine and perfect match for the food. Service was excellent and always glad when they check in when the steaks had a first bite.
All in, it was a wonderful evening and we will be back!

Yes for steak of course but the prawns were not very tasty. My salad came after my companion's chowder. And my entree came after I had just started salad.
