Repetitive and uneventful is the definition of "boring". But just because the unchanging high level of service and outstanding food is the only thing I have received here time after time, including twice this week, I wouldn't call it boring. Call it a "must visit"

Great service, wonderful surprises like free dessert and champagne for our anniversary.
We have eaten at the Capital Grill several times and this was the first time that it was not a great experience. Having made the reservation on line and then confirming once by email and once as a result of a call from the restaurant we assumed that they knew we were coming. We arrived 10 minutes early and were shown to a table at the very front of the restaurant and across from the bar. It was also next to the gathering place for people waiting to be seated etc. Sitting at such an add on table our service was very slow. When I asked the the waiter he quickly put me in my place be telling me that he was busy with tables in the back part of the restaurant. The food as as usual very good but the way we were treated no so much.
Everyday or Special Occasion
Capital Grille is the perfect dinner spot for special occasion or just dinner out. We went with our son and his girlfriend just before the Billy Joel concert. Wonderful service, attentive to our time constraint and great food.

Very close to Benaroya Hall and the staff is obviously well trained to be sensitive to the need to "make a show (concert/event)." We will be dining at Capital Grille again!

A Great Evening at the Capital Grille
As always the food was fantastic and the service excellent. We just made one suggestion and it was done immediately. Always enjoy the Capital Grille
They make special occasions special!
You can't beat this place for special occasions. They decorate the table with sparkle confetti and give you a signed card. The dessert platter that they present at the end of the meal is completely special and very, very tasty! We have had Omar as our server several times, and he is a gem. Very friendly and accommodating, personable and just an all-around nice guy. Capital Grille is my go-to place for any special occasion.

This is an exceptional restaurant in every way. Service is exceptional, food great, we are especially found of the artichoke soup. But honestly everything is great. Good value for the cost. We have tried several of the shareable sides all of which are excellent.
Thank you for making our anniversary special . Classy place, great food , great service .
Our new best Steakhouse. Great menu selections. We had six people in our party and everyone ordered something different. The steaks just melt in your month and the Chilean Sea bass was outstanding. Everyone loved the sides, I especially loved the mashed potatoes the very best I've ever had. The ambiance was perfect. The wait staff was excellent. Will definitively be returning soon.
Amazing Service and the Lobster Frittata was great
Our Service was amazing from the time we walked into Capital. There were several waiters waiting on us, our main server Andrea was happy and helpful and very thoughtful. Her manager Charlie was comical and a delight as he suggested to us the delicious Medium Rare Salmon. We had a great time and will definitely go again!
Awesome Steak Dinner
Cocktails before dinner were great - loved the blue cheese stuffed olives in my Martini! Salads, sides and steaks were all done perfectly delicious. Mushrooms were a bit dry but tasty. Our server was very attentive and friendly with a great sense of humor. The steaks are always fantastic.
Great service, great food and wonderful atmosphere!

The $20.00 lunch menu was an outstanding value. We had the artichoke bisque with the tenderloin sliders. Waiter allowed us to substitute asparagus (my favorite) for the fries. The sliders were like getting 2 petite filets, very filling and perfectly cooked. What we didnt spend on main course, we spent on wine and was definitely worth it. We'll be back.

Good reception at the hostess desk. Great service from Luis, our waiter. My Kona rubbed steak was wonderful. The oysters were also great. My wife's filet was ok. Her calamari was just so-so as the breeding was too thick. Overall very enjoyable.

Prices are very high and portions are subsequently a bit too large. Food and service was excellent though.
Eating in Seattle
Whenever we visit Seattle we make Capitol Grille a stop. The food, wine, ambience and service are notable and make for an outstanding evening. A special shout out to DeVeaux (I hope I got the spelling correct) our service professional. He was outstanding. This restaurant is a keeper.
Best salmon in Seattle
My friend loved his steak, but the salmon continues to be so good, large serving that is buttery with a citrus glaze. It was even good carefully reheated the next day at home. Excellent salad and indescribably yummy burnt creme.

Gayle and I did in fact enjoy our meal at the Capital Grill. It was wonderful celebrating Gayle's birthday in the lounge amongst the lively tables next to us on Friday night. Gayle showed up early and was seated and I joined her but forgot to check in with the staff. But we both had a wonderful time.

Great service and food. Andrea took care of us and we had a 2.5 year old!
Always wonderfully served, and delicious food!
We always come to The Capital Grille when we are going to the 5th Avenue. The pre-theatre menu is excellent, although we sometimes just enjoy the regular menu! Service is usually excellent, and the noise level is usually very low. Just great all around, special restaurant!

I had the porcini rub ribeye based on the server's recommendation- Delish!!!! Hubby had the steak and lobster tails- very good as well. The Parmesan truffle fries were superb. The cheesecake was awesome! While the place wasn't packed it was loud. Service was great. A good place for an excellent dinner.
Very expensive but good food and service
This restaurant is, in my view, for a very special occasion because it is so expensive. They do have entrees for non-meat eaters, but the steak is the draw and it is very good. The service is first rate.
An above-and-beyond dining experience!
From the time I entered, the staff went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and to meet my dietary requirements, even bringing me small items that fit my diet to compliment my meal. Excellent service, kindness and wonderful food!

Perfect. We arrived about 20 minutes early and they had no problem seating us. Our waiter, Christopher, had great recommendations for wine, whiskey, appetizers, and sides. It was 8 on a Friday night and he managed to make us feel like we were his only table. The manager DeVeaux was also a peach. We were there on the last night of our honeymoon and they went above and beyond to make sure it was memorable. We will be back!

Staff was great. We ordered off menu and it was not an issue (steak and fried lobster). Everything was cooked properly
Good place that excels at service
My last visit confirmed once again that Capital Grille is a great place to go for business lunch (I'm sure for other meals as well, but that is when I usually end up there). Service was very good, and the food is always well prepared. Hostess noted our special request (quiet table or booth) on the reservation and accommodated it, sat two of us when we arrived, and our guest was promptly shown to our table when she got there. Staff was helpful, efficient, and didn't get in our way once we started in on the business of our discussion. Exactly what we wanted.
It was the first time at The Capital Grille and I found it to be a wonderful experience. The ambiance was great, the noise was minimal and the food was delicious.
Not What Expected
Cocktails are OK. Appetizers appear to be around 30 years old (in style, not age of food, although the scallops were close to 30 I bet). The aged strip was OK, not exceptional. the Scallops were over cooked, perhaps a blessing since they had a strong 'fishy' odor from sitting around too long

Excellent food! Highly recommend to anyone. We had a table of 12 and all our food was served at one time. I'll be back next time I'm in town.
Great for a special occasion
This restaurant is great for a special occasion. The atmosphere is quiet and beautiful. The service is impeccable. They truly strive to make your evening magical. We even witnessed an engagement while we were there. So it is a great place to celebrate a special event in your life, whether it be proposing to your girlfriend or celebrating someone's birthday. A great place overall!
