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.

Capital Grille is one of our favorite restaurants in Seattle. Our dinner this week was no exception. The service was outstanding from beginning to end; the food and wine were exceptional; and the overall classy environment keeps us coming 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.

The desserts really sealed the deal for this to be an amazing meal, save room for the coconut cream pie!

What an amazing dinner experience we had! The filets with their signature “Kona rub” were tender and bursting with that dry age flavor. The sautéed spinach is delicious done in extra virgin olive oil and garlic , and light! The loaded baked potatoes also a treat !

We had the pear and Gorgonzola salad - glad we split and it was delicious . Had the Mark Ryan Dissident wine and perfect match for the food. Service was excellent and always glad when they check in when the steaks had a first bite.
All in, it was a wonderful evening and we will be back!

Yes for steak of course but the prawns were not very tasty. My salad came after my companion's chowder. And my entree came after I had just started salad.

The fillets that the 3 of us had were excellent. The Wedge salad was excellent. The comments that I have concern the side order of green beans, which by current 'vogue' standards were probably excellent as well, just not to my liking. The 'vogue' seems to be to saute with olive oil, which I hate! And, also probably prepared 'en vogue' to be crispy; mine seemed extra crispy to the point of being more suited for a salad than a hot side dish (they weren't hot either). Bread is also 'en vogue', hard, stiff and some bitter. Would prefer the old fashioned fluffy, soft, yeast dinner rolls...just my preference. Service was excellent; waiter was very attentive, responsive and informative. On our next visit I will simply try other sides and forgo the bread. There WILL be more visits, overall excellent place to eat...definitely in step with the times and current trends...just not for an old fuddy-duddy!! Definitely recommend.

I like going to the Capital Grille, however I have to only go once and a while. As the prices for lunch can be a little high. The food is great and the service is superb.

While this is primarily a steak place, the sea bass was wonderful. The lobster bisque was creamy and flavorful. The desserts were decadent.

Everything was pretty good. When I ordered the wine, the waiter poured out a tasting to which I realized it was not the correct wine. When I told the waiter that this wine wouldn’t do and asked for a different one, he rushed away clearly upset, before I could apologize. He was very short with us for the rest of dinner doing the bare minimum for his responsibilities. Nearly ruined our engagement celebration.

Filet was very tender, cooked perfectly to order. Salads were VERY, very tasty (one wedge for me and one pear for my husband). Bacon 'bits' were actually small chunks and were so good. Strawberries w/cream for dessert was simple but absolutely wonderful and not so filling after a big meal! It is refreshing to have this as an option instead of a huge serving of cake, pie, or such! Service was excellent. This was a new experience; we will definitely be returning!

From the beginning, the service was impeccable. We had a reservation and arrived early, but were seated immediately. Our waiter was incredible. Always on top of his game, knew everything about the menu and answered all of our questions perfectly. Now the food, from appetizers to our main course, every bite was delicious! We didn’t want to stop eating! The flavors were on point! I highly recommend this restaurant! You will not be disappointed! We will most definitely be returning!

The hostess put us close to the main entrance and this made for a distracting evening. It was compounded by staff then sitting someone who was there for a "date" which apparently went south due to the female date bringing along her sister, who was a surprise for the businessman was surprised to see that she was accompanied as it was not on her "profile". He ended up walking out and the two females began calling for other "dates" from the table. Not our idea of a nice night out at an upscale establishment

Children in the restaurant were very distracting. We brought a 10-year-old and he ate with no disturbance. Our waiter was fantastic!
