We had a large group and had a very nice meal. The appetizers are good. Everyone enjoyed their steak. The service was very good.

It is so nice to know when you dine at the Capital Grille you will have great food and service no matter where you go in the U.S. The Seattle location is located in the heart of the city and had an excellent staff. I had the Scallops services with asparagus It was excellent. Would highly recommend this restaurant for business dinners.

Every year my husband will take me out for a nice dinner for my Birthday and Anniversary. So for our 27th wedding anniversary we had dinner at Capital Grille. From valet parking, to the hostess, to our waiter Drew it was an all around excellent experience. They put a little heart shaped confetti on the table and a hand written note signed by staff. They gave us a complimentary dessert with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate on the plate. I was already so full from the fantastic Filet Mignon, Creamed Corn and Sauté Spinach but it was a courteous gesture and by the way DELICIOUS. So what do I love: Staff is on top of things, attentive and have a way of making you feel valued as a guest in this fine dining establishment. The special touches like the hand written note and dessert. We have been to a number of high end steak houses and restaurants and no one does this. This is why we keep coming back, they appreciate our business and make us feel special when we're celebrating an occasion with them and even when we dine there and we're not celebrating. The entire staff presents well very professional. They are knowledgeable, the staff is well experienced in their trade. They check in with you to ensure everything is okay including the hostess. The food is fantastic! The creamed corn was a hit with us. Prosecco was perfect. What I don't love: Nothing. Every bit of my experience each and every time is amazing, Capital Grille never disappoints. Please don't change, we love you just the way you are!

The meal was very good. Our service was just okay. Arrived just a few minutes early, but were not seated right away although there were many empty tables. Valet parking saw our car parked right outside the restaurant right where we left it for $10....oh well. If you like steak, this is a good choice, but our server did not have the personality that you would expect in a restaurant of this caliber.

Our server was amazing; great knowledge of the menu and gluten-free options. The staff was kind and very friendly to our 9 and 12 year olds. We enjoyed mouthwatering steaks and drinks, and topped it all off with creme brûlée.
