We were celebrating a night away from the kids. Lol We has amazing cocktails, excellent wine, our amazing steaks, and truffle fries.

I had the steak with gargonzola and it was So flavorful! Just be aware it does get a bit strong after half of the steak and I got so full so I ate the rest later.

Our server Christopher was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the food and wine pairing.

Had an amazing time and really enjoyed ourselves.

Totally worth the price I wish we could afford to go more but we hope to be back for another special occasion .

We spend a weekend in Seattle each year to Christmas shop, and always make reservations at the Capital Grille. The wait staff are professional and friendly, and the food is excellent.

The Capital Grille never disappoints! Food is outstanding, service is impeccable, the wine list covers every price range and taste (Gorman Red Mountain "Bully" cab sauvignon is absolutely to die for!) Yes, it's nice to check out the competition. We do that. But we always come back to Capital Grille because we know that it will give us a stellar dining experience that the competition simply cannot beat!

The Capital Grille continues to provide exceptional service and quality of food. Our server, Matt, is fantastic in timing and personality. I highly recommend this restaurant for your special events or if you are attending a close by event at the 5th Ave. or Benaroya Hall in downtown Seattle.

This is a typical old style Seattle steak restaurant. The food is very nice, but it not worth the high prices they charge. $60 plus for a filet and baked potatoe. The steak was good the veg was very poor. Service is very good but the whole experience is not good value for money. There are far more exciting and modern restaurants that offer far better food for such prices.

Had a wonderful experience here. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was incredible! Our waiter, Rod, was genuinely the nicest waiter I’ve ever had, he had us laughing and enjoying ourselves. We were there for our anniversary and he went out of his way to make it a great dinner experience. Champagne and dessert on the house, which was delicious and greatly appreciated. Would definitely recommend!

This restaurant was excellent. It was my husband's birthday and not only did they have the table decorated with birthday confetti, but they also included a very nice birthday card. The service, food and wine were wonderful. They gave my husband a complimentary dessert that was to die for. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Our meals at the Seattle Captial Grille are always excellent as is the service. They have been one of my favorite restaurants in Seattle ever since my wife took me there years ago for my birthday meal! I like that they are centrally located within walking distance of many nice downtown hotels and bars!!

We went for my husbands birthday and I have to say it was a great experience. When they called to confirm the reservation, they asked if we were celebrating anything. I️ told them my husbands birthday.
They asked how his name was spelled. When we arrived for our reservation we received top notch service. Valet parking. Coat check. The whole nine.
Our table was adorned with cute confetti and a birthday card for him. The food was amazing and our server Rod was very attentive.
The birthday dessert was more than we had anticipated. It was beautiful and rich and the plate was so pretty.
We will definitely come back for our next special occasion.
