The Capital Grille is our all time favorite fora special occasion or if you want to be treated special! We celebrated our wedding anniversary with good friends at The Capital Grille. If you want a professional wait staff, Matthew was outstanding, who can make spot on suggestions for a meal and deliver consistently superb food, then this is your place. Couple this with attentive management (Thank You Amanda!) and excellent wine list, then you have to go here!

We have been to The Capital Grille by ourselves and with friends and have never been disappointed!

We went for our anniversary. They had a table prepared with rose petals and a hand-written card. We received a special mini-appetizer and dessert. The service was excellent and the food was very good. Definitely a special treat for us given the price range, but well worth it.

We had a nice Christmas meal. Server was nice but definitely not a seasoned Server. Went through the correct sequence but lacked knowledge of the wine list, had some trouble opening the bottle at the table but returned shortly with it opened, foil still lining the rim of the bottle. Menu spiel was okay but jumped around a lot describing many different items, semi-rehearsed presentation. He gave it his best but not as engaging or able to read the table as you would expect in a high profile, high ticket establishment, maybe some more training from the Management, saw them but not much recognition on their behalf.
Had leftovers and asked to box up remaining, Server must have assumed we didn't want the bone as he didn't box it up, poor dog didn't get his Christmas bone.
Overall a positive experience and we definitely took care of the Server, not entirely his fault.

The food was awesome, the drinks, the ambience were great but the service was short. First, when I called to reconfirm my reservation she couldn't find my name until I mentioned the name of the hostess that confirmed my reservation. Secondly, they charged twice for valet parking. All in all we enjoyed the food and the company.

We had a holiday dinner at Capital Grille before a show at Benaroya. We started at the bar, where the bartender was cordial. Our table was ready early, so we were able to be seated right away. Our waiter was attentive but unobtrusive. I ordered the porterhouse which was prepared perfectly and my friend had the Steak Oscar, which she loved. The waiter graciously held our to go bags until after the theater, and when we returned we enjoyed espresso and lava cake at the bar. The stand out for Capital Grille is the steaks and the service!

Very warm and comfortable. Friendly staff. Food was very good but..:..my steak was medium and my wife’s was very rare (we ordered them the other way around). We would have made the point to the extremely personable waiter, but after waiting 45 min after our appetizer, we were not in the mood to delay our meal any longer. The waiter was well aware of the delay and made a few attempts at conversation including a few indirect excuses for the kitchen. Basically it wasn’t his fault but the team let him down. He did make a gesture at the end with complimentary drinks (bubbling cider). Nice touch but didn’t quite do it.

My office was two blocks away and I ate lunch at the Capital Grille two or three times a month. The food was good, the service was extremely professional and the prices were a touch high. Nothing's changed. You have to understand, it's a chain, so change isn't usually welcome in chain eateries.
One thing to note from my lunch with buddies on 12/11 that has changed: the portions are smaller.
Value is starting to be an issue here. And don't order the rib eye steak sandwich unless you have really strong jaws.

My only, and I mean ONLY complaint -- was TOO much attention being paid to our table - -making conversation difficult with so many interruptions. Having three different people ask you how you are, within the span of 2 minutes - -occurring no less than three times in a. one hour stay - -is a bit excessive. They might want to delegate this job more clearly. Other than that, OUTSTANDING!
