Services are good, peoples are so nice and the food is delicious
It was a great experience with the restaurant going above and beyond with the request I had asked for. Food was great, service was excellent from not just my server but the entire staff we encountered there. Would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.
We have enjoyed the Capital Grill experience in many locales and now the Newport Beach restaurant joins the list. Welcomed to our table with confetti and a rose, we were greeted by highly professional Michael, ten year veteran waiter with the group. He had complete knowledge of the menu as well as the specials, allowed us time to just enjoy our drinks and as we ordered food he assured it was delivered quickly. We enjoyed the calamari to start, perfectly fried with just the right amount of peppers. Then filet for one and sea bass the other (that’s right perfect fish in a known steak house, first time for that too.). Love the show with the martinis arriving in miniature shakers and poured at the table. Atmosphere overall perfect clubhouse feeling.
4 people were in our group. We all ordered steak and 2 of us had lobster with the steak. 3 of the steaks were to be medium rare and they were medium well. The other steak was to be medium well and it was medium rare. The lobster was over done too. The sides, salads and desserts were very good.
The waitress had to be tracked down twice. She rarely stopped to check on us.
The manager reduced the bill and gave us a gift card.
This is a place that the food, wine and service are always top notch. If that is what you are looking for, and you don't mind paying a price for that, Capital Grill is your place.
Excellent food, ambiance and service was excellent as always. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Great restaurant wonderful steak well prepared and served done to perfection. Elegant interior very comfortable interior we will return
Sensational experience from start to conclusion. Food was perfectly made & presented. Service was exceptionally friendly & attentive. Always enjoy my experience at the Capital Grille.
This was our first time at the restaurant. We were celebrating our Anniversary and everything was great.
Tim was very nice and pleasant.
Dinner was fine the filet mignon had a weird taste to it
Amazing service, never lets your glass get half empty, bussers are better than some waiters. My husband and mine’s favorite spot, hands down!

We enjoy Capital Grille because it is reliably excellent food and service.
We were a party of 3, 1 steak:excellent, 1 salmon: excellent, 1 asstd crab, shrimp: excellent. We dined in the bar area, and Tom, the bartender did very well for us, tableside. Plus his wonderful personality added to superb service, for both wine and food. A major glitch at the front desk gave away our reserved booth by mistake, so we were relegated to an awfully located table. It was like Grand Central Station, right in a heavy traffic area. Cold & drafty, too.There should be no table placed there. We took it anyway, despite my misgivings. An "F" to the reception lady, and "A" to everyone else. We'll return, but I will be more watchful.
I visited with my two year old grandson. We both love the Capital Grille.
Our request for a table away from traffic was honored so we had the opportunity to settle in without distraction. Caleb, our server, was a pleasure and the food is always great.
A great outing, thanks Capital Grille.
Derrick is #1
I love it here!! Ask for the items not in the menu, excellent service always
Nice dinner at the bar.....tied the sliced Filet for the first time....delicious and a good value. brussels sprouts are the best!
My companion and I ordered the Filet Mignon and Ribeye, both steaks are incredible, we both ordered medium, and they came out just liked what we wanted. Both steaks were able to capture the juiciness inside. We also have some appetizers, sides, and desserts, hits and misses here and there, but their steaks are still the focal points.
Our waiter is attentive, he truly did a great job, and the rest of service crews are great as well.
I was pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. It was my first time
Dining at this establishment and my experience was outstanding.atmosphere and outstanding service a solid 5 star rating. The food is out of this world good.
The meal was great and our server was amazing but the front of the house is a mess.
We celebrated my friend’s birthday. The food was outstanding! He wanted a good steak dinner for his birthday but this was great! Bone-in filet minion! Ally was a tremendous wait staff member and I will be requesting her for future dining experiences.
Server was fabulous (Jaime) as well as server support Fransisco who noted debris in water glass and replaced! Well done to both. The reality is that her service and top notch quality of the food made a very poor ambiance worth actually staying for. We felt like we were in the middle of Grand Central Station. Too many tables forced into a small space and size of table for four people is ridiculously small. Was seated next to servers stand and was constantly being bumped by patrons and staff. Not a very enjoyable atmosphere considering the price point of CG. We are long time fans of CG and this was the worst experience in all the years.
We went there for a special celebratory evening. Amazing service, cocktails and the meat and seafood were exceptional. Definitely we will return.
Very professional waiter; really knew his stuff. Steaks were scrumptious; not a lot of fish choices for non red meat eaters.
The food was outstanding and the ambiance was great too!
Food was dry and took to long to come out.
Ribeye sandwich was so fatty couldn’t eat it.
To begin the service was impeccable couldn’t have asked for a better server. Thanks Scott. We shared a New York steak that they split for us it was so tender and cooked perfectly. The au gratin potatoes were delicious and we had leftovers. They gave us a beautiful dessert. I highly recommend it for any special occasion.
From our early arrival throughout the evening , everything was exceptional.
Excellent food, service and ambiance. Can’t say enough great things about this restaurant.
Excellent Lobster salad worth the $29
Excellent tenderloin sliders worth the price
Excellent tenderloin salad worth the price
Onion soup was OK, not excellent and not worth $12 a cup.
Clam chowder was very good, but again $12
Michael was our server and his service and recommendations were on point…
Excellent food and service - Thank you for making our night special
Came in for a Thursday night dinner. Just two of us. Service was impeccable. Salads, soup and sides were delicious. My only issue is that I ordered a Kona NY Steak and it was very tough. It happens. Overall a good experience and I recommend TCG to anyone who likes fine dining.
We had a wonderful night. Our server was excellent and our food was perfect!
The medium rare steak I ordered came out well done. My server wasn’t available so I asked another server to assist me. My sides were cold by the time the replacement was delivered. He made some comment about the kitchen bringing my steak up to temperature for me. Actually no, I wanted it cooked less! No check back to ask about anything. Mediocre at best compared to other locations.
We’re there about 2 or 2 times a week!!!
