Our party of six dined here before the symphony because it's close to Benaroya Hall and our favorite place was full. The dining room was unnaturally dark, not to mention cold--excessively air conditioned on a sunny but cool day. The service was pretty good; at least, there were numerous servers buzzing around. Most of our food was very tasty, but... More

I'm comparing them with my experiences at Metropolitan Grill just a few blocks away. We arrived ahead of our reservation and were seated within 5 minutes...nicely done. Good table towards the back and well positioned to take in the sights of the wine library with a view peeking into the kitchen. Our waiter Ben, was really engaging and a good... More

this is our fourth visit to a Capital Grille and again, we were not disappointed by the food at all. Sometimes the service can come across as a little obsequious but the food is what you go here for.

We took the light link in from our hotel by the airport because we promised ourselves one more great meal before heading home. A long flight from Shanghai had us craving a steak after 9 days of Chinese food some of which contained questionable protein. My lobster bisque starter with Soli Doli was the perfect combination of warm soup cool... More

After making reservations to dine at Capital Grill for Easter, I was very excited. I had taken a peek at the menu and knew exactly what I wanted. Entering the Capital Grill is definitely stepping into a steakhouse. Dark wood cozy booths, wine lockers… The wait staff is wonderfully dressed and seemed attentive to the customers. After being shown to... More

I have ate at several Capital Grilles. They are managed perfect and always a fantastic visit. Classic Steak house design with perfectly prepared food. Yes it is expensive but you know it will be nothing more than perfection.

April 9th was the second time we celebrated my husband's birthday at Capital Grille. Two years ago, we dined at Capital Grille-Indianapolis and it was superb.
