We dined with friends at Capitol Grill one evening. Food was good but not outstanding. Service was good but not outstanding. Decor was forgettable. Do you see a pattern emerging? While certainly not a bad restaurant, bring good company if you want a memorable evening.

The service was superb - the bartenders actually know how to make great drinks. Salad was fresh and crisp, and the steak was among the best I've had. Expect to pay dearly. Hard to imagine getting out of this restaurant for under $100 per head.

Food was excellent. This was an office Christmas party, and they did an excellent job of accomating us in a private dining room.

Decided to dine here last minute - great service. Staff was on top of it. It was our anniversary and they put fun confetti on the table and gave us a delicious dessert. Great food, great staff, great atmosphere.

Seattle offers many restaurants around the public market but some of them are really just average tourist places. So just a blocks away we settled for the Capitol Grill to get some great shellfish and steaks. I've been to many Capitol Grills all over the country and food and service is always excellent!

Stopped in on the way back to the hotel at 7:30pm and was able to get a table. The waiter helped me make up my own drink and it ended up great. I had the crab cocktail and clam chowder and loved them both. If you can afford steakhouse prices, this is worth it!
