Went here for lunch today with my husband and had The clam chowder, jumbo shrimp and mushroom risotto, the chocolate cake, and the crème brûlée. All items were listed on the gf menu And even though I let them know I had celiac before ordering I still got sick. Food was just OK- not worth the price tag!

Ate here last night and it was absolutely fantastic. The server was extremely knowledgeable and took my Celiac very seriously. Was with a large group and he even brought me out a small caprese salad in place of bread so I didn't feel left out! The food was spectacular and they even offer a creme brûlée or chocolate cake for dessert. Simply fantastic and I felt no ill effects!

Exceptional food. Great knowledge and availability of GF offerings. Excellent service. No complaints about Capital Grille at all. I do have a complaint about whomever posted the menu prices as $$ which states entrees $10-$15. There wasn't an appetizer for $10. 2 of us split one salad, one entree and one side dish of potatoes and 1 cocktail each, and the bill was more than $100.

This place did such a good job of catering to me! They have an extensive dedicated menu. They knew in advance of my allergy and brought the menu over and promised to take good care of me. This is a steak house so everything our table ordered was naturally GF but the server made sure the kitchen used all new pots and pans for all of us so we could share if we wanted. They brought out a complimentary dessert for my friends birthday and gave me my own flourless chocolate cake since I couldn’t share with him. Really wonderful experience.

I spent four nights in Seattle. We ate at some of the best restaurants in town but this one, this one stole the show! It’s expensive but worth every single penny. The waiter alerted the chef and the manager on duty. I felt like a queen! Do it, spend the money, enjoy this elegant restaurant! I had the salmon, it melted in my mouth like butter…. And don’t miss the crème brûlée for dessert!

I was attending a dinner in a private room. They were very kind when I called before I went and explained that I have celiac. First of all he did not know what that meant so I should have known, once I said gluten free, he said "oh no problem! We have a gf menu!" And he explained they prepare the food safely and separately. When I arrived I asked for the GF menu and it said "gluten sensitive menu" which also caught me off guard. But again the staff was very kind and seemed knowledgeable. I explained that I was very "allergic" to gluten and needed the food prepared safely and separately. Unfortunately, right after I finished the meal I had to run to the bathroom. So I do not trust the kitchen.
