Capital Grille Seattle is always a fantastic experience. The service is top notch and on point. The food looks and tastes fantastic. Management knows what they're doing and does a terrific job training the staff and keeping the quality high.

We went to dinner at Capital Grill for our Exchange Student’s 18th birthday expecting amazing foo. I had very strict dietary restrictions and they worked with them and made me very comfortable. My meal was delicious! Not only did we have exquisite food, they made his birthday so special with sparkling apple cider (champagne for the adults), balloon confetti, a nice card, and a delicious dessert, but the best part were the people. Our waiter was outstanding! Everyone that we came in contact with was so warm and welcoming. Hands down one of our best dining experiences and it made our night. Thank you Capital Grill!

Wow! What can I say...when you dream about the wonderful food, a full day afterwards! Then you make plans on your calendar to return, even when it's not a special occasion! That speaks volumes in itself! I would like to acknowledge a few people though..... the front Host guy was very pleasant & immediately made us feel valued & welcomed. We appreciated that they took the social distancing seriously during this difficult covid-19 times. The decor was very stylish & made you feel important. Our wait staff were all wonderful, patient, not pushy, attentive, knew the menu well & asked the appropriate order related questions. Always amazes me when they can remember all of the requests, without even writing anything down. (Even offered us toppings that we didn't know we even wanted....& at no extra charge.) So thank you for taking such good care of us! The table busser was efficient. The Mgr. walked by. I kinda wondered if he would stop & engage. To my amazement & delight, he did stop, took a step backwards to speak to us about our unforgettable dining experience. I joked later about how he must have noticed that my plate was almost completely clear....having enjoyed my meal soooo much!Lastly kudos to the Chef! I do realize all of the hours it must have taken you to learn how to create these truly remarkable dishes! I want you to know that your talents and passion for what you do, are realized every day & with every meal that you prepare. This experience was tremendously satisfying! Yes I recommend! Yes we will be back!

Nice Father’s Day dinner. Great service from John. We even had a COVID sanitation conversation at the end, he told us they the sanitize everything that is touched, including the check presenters. We all need to feel safe going out and it’s important that restaurants understand that. Thanks John and thanks cutters for being there for us!

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.

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.

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.
