It was OC Restaurant Week, so the value was very good. Overall service was good. The only negative we have is the size of the side dishes. They were much smaller than served at other restaurants. The steaks were very good and plentiful. Will return

My husband and I love capital grill but our experience on Saturday, 3/14/20, wasn’t as good as prior experiences. My filet mignon and mash potatoes were salty. We ordered the creme brûlée cheesecake for dessert but were told it was out once desserts arrived and were given the chocolate desserts instead. We didn’t even touch the deserts because it wasn’t what we had in mind.

There are many fine restaurants in Orange County. Would you have Tim Barber as your server it makes it a dining experience. This is why we come to the Capital Grille.

We stopped after the theater. We were early and before our reservation time but we were seated right away. Tim greeted us right away and as usual we had excellent service. Tim made some suggestions and we ordered our meal. Everything was delicious & cooked well. Kona crusted filet and filet Oscar. So good.

I visited The Capital Grille for O.C. Restaurant Week. The menu choices were very good and we chose to upgrade our menu options. Everything was excellent. The Rib-eye steak was cooked to perfection and the wine pairing and dessert was all fantastic. The service is exceptional and I look forward to another visit.

There were 5 couples. One couple sent their food back. Not until we walked out of the restaurant did people start saying how disappointed they were. About 3 out of 5 were unsatisfied
