Capital Grille is a great place to eat, whether it's a casual lunch as we were having today, a New Year's Eve dinner, or anything else in between.
Of course, you can get good food at many restaurants these days, but what separates Capital Grille from the others is the service you get from GM Charlie Stauter and his superlative staff. That's why we are Capital Grille, Seattle, regulars!

The Capital Grille is always our 'go to' location for birthdays and anniversaries. We started going to the Seattle location when Luis moved over from the Rainier Club at the opening of the Seattle Capital Grille. Our server on Saturday was Amber, who was just wonderful and made us want to come back again soon, As usual, my wife loved the filet and I found the chicken just ok, probably because it still had the skin on it. The complimentarty 'birthday dessert' was a very nice touch and I very much appreciated Amber's keeping my diet Coke glass full.

I had the filet which was cooked perfectly! Finally a steakhouse that actually knows how to cook a medium steak rather than bringing it out blood red in the center. Everything was delicious!

We had a 6:30 reservation but we weren’t seated until 7. Poorly managed. There are better options in Seattle.

I dine at the Capital Grille on a regular basis, in Seattle and Minneapolis. I have been to others across the United States and the all the qualities are uniformly great throughout. The food is consistently exceptional, the service superb, the ambience supremely comfortable and the locations are convenient to the metropolitan area in which they are located. It is the exceptional qualities of consistent excellence that brings me back wherever I am.

You expect good food at Capital Grille, and you get it; but Charlie Stauter and his staff are what puts them above the competition.

Best steak and seafood in Seattle. Ask for Carlos Romero to be your waiter. Excellent service! Knew every detail about the menu, wines, cocktails and history of the restaurant. His attention to details was outstanding. Plus surprised us with a special anniversary dessert and tour the wine cellar!

At 1 p.m. on a Wednesday, I made reservations for a table for 11 on that same evening. They made it happen, providing great service and outstanding food. Pricey but worth every dollar. The 10 oz filet was THE best steak I've ever had, anywhere.

A busy place, a little noisy. Steaks were very, very good. Service was very good, but waiter seemed to forget us after meal was served... e. g., a long time to get extra glass of wine.

Expensive but an excellent meal.
