Eight of us went here for a nice holiday meal before a meeting. The service was good as was the food. Slightly expensive meal but worth the price, I would return.

Always a well informed choice to meet at the Cap Grille before any performance at Segerstrom or SCR. The staff totally "gets it" and are super accommodating. Great food and great wine here.

Hi. There is no dress code, specially if you are there for lunch. But people are dressed nicer for dinner and the restaurant has very nice and upscale decor.
