    Excellent Dungeness crab cocktail, lobster and crab cakes and filet. The shrimp seemed a little overcooked and the lobster bisque was a bit thin. The waitress and staff did an excellent job and it was an enjoyable experience. Like so many places at this time, the prices were higher than they used to be.

    Very nice Mother’s Day dinner. Took care of the kids with special menu and toys. Very nicely replaced underdone steak. Had almost telepathic empathy to detect concerns about steak and delays. Great experience!

    Mother's Day with all the fixings. Appetizers, entrees (eye catching display of a two tiered crab, shrimp, oysters and lobster for mum) accommodating vegan option (although not many) for me. Bottle of champagne... ok two additional glasses and dessert. Roll us out as happy campers for sure. The service, tres magnificent.

    My steak was not cooked well at all; bites were very leathery. 'Wild' mushrooms were rubbery and watery. They were out of the Scotch Whisky I ordered.

    Very nice solo meal. As a single business traveler, I always appreciate being treated as a valued diner and relegated to the forgotten space. Service was wonderful. “In fashion” was a nice touch on classic old fashioned. Lobster bisque was outstanding. I had the sea bass which was good, but needed a little something more as it was in a rich butter sauce that lacked depth of flavor. Maybe a bit of spice. Would like the sides offered for one at smaller portions as they really are geared for the table. Great visit.

    First time at this restaurant as there isn't one near my home. Had dinner one night and lunch another day. The service was great and the food was delicious. Nice ambiance too and great location (walking distance from my hotel - The Fairmont Olympic). Dinner: I had the Filet Oscar (special - filet mignon topped with dungeness crab au gratin and Béarnaise sauce) on a bed of asparagus. My dinner companion had the surf and turf - a butterflied sirloin topped with two little lobster tails & a baked potato. Both were very good. Our lovely server suggested the MAAL "Imposible" 2016 Malbec which paired perfectly with the beef. For dessert, we shared the Crème Brûlée and the cheesecake (aslo Brûléed) a nice ending to our meal. I went for lunch alone a couple days later on my way to the airport. I again had the filet of beef and chose the creamed spinach as my one side. It was delightful and I was very satisfied. Will definitely be back next time I visit Seattle and wouldn't hesitate to try any of the locations.

    Outstanding service from Matthew from the moment we were seated. This is a man who knows his craft and his knowledge of the menu was without fault. The food was good but my steak was inedible due to it being so tough. It was removed from our bill, but unfortunately I had wanted a steak and though offered a replacement, it puts you in to a situation where the people you are dining with have finished and you have to eat alone. No fun at all.

    The food at the Capital Grille is always reliably delicious. What made my experience stand out this time was the truly exceptional customer service. Unbeknownst to me, my key fob fell out of my bag under the table, and in the darkened atmosphere, I did not see it. I arrived back in Chicago to discover that I did not have my keys. Later that same day I received an email from Nicolle Tulien, the restaurant manager, letting me know that our party had left an item at the table. Nicolle had taken the time to track me down through my OpenTable reservation and would have reached me by phone before I left, if I had kept my account updated. My key fob and a very sweet, handwritten note from Nicolle arrived on Saturday, saving me tremendous frustration and not inconsiderable expense. While these events were not directly related to the quality of our dining, a restaurant and individual with such attention to customer service, long after the bill has been paid, speaks volumes to the care that one can expect while enjoying their hospitality.

    We were disappointed to find that valet parking is no longer available. The parking garage, in the Cobb Building, is outdated and difficult to navigate. Finding the restaurant is an adventure. Inside, it was crowded but pleasantly active. The principal waitperson was attentive and a good foil for our group. But, the food somewhat disappointed. A Caesar salad was meager and not fresh, and the steaks ok but not superior. One of our party suffered a migraine after arriving, leading to a downer table. The birthday celebrant found his first drink distasteful. Parking was not paid for. This was the lowest experience of my many times at this restaurant and should not occur again.
