Capital Grille - Philadelphia
As great as always. Can alwaysAs great as always. Can always count on this Cap Grille!!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Steak save room for DessertPortions are large so skip the appetizer and save room for the dessert. For a steak place, the scallops were fantastic. The best I have had. I recommend the coconut cream dessert.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThey sat us early which wasThey sat us early which was fine with us. The service was spectacular. I had lobster with crab meat and they took it out of the shell for me. We definitely would go back.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the cost.
I have leftWorth the cost.
I have left other high-end steakhouses feeling ripped off. Not this one!
Due to a horrible traffic jam, we were 30 min. late on a Friday evening (we alerted them), and they were very gracious about it, and told us not to worry. The waiter, Rob G, was the best I have ever had. From assuring us that he would get us to our show on time, to his encyclopedic knowledge of every aspect of any menu item we asked about. His demeanor was perfect, neither snooty nor fawning. The food was heavenly. From the wedge and chopped salads to the lobster-and-crab cakes, to the seared tenderloin and butter poached lobster tails, which melted in my mouth. We will return anytime we want to feel like we are sitting on top of the world.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLobster bisque was terrific!the Lobster salad amouse bouche was very good, and the lobster bisque was terrific. The steak and sides were good, not outstanding. For steak I would go to Ruth's Chris down the street. Perhaps their seafood dishes are better, but we didn't have that.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ValueWe dined here before a show at the Walnut Street Theater and took advantage of the pre-theater special. It's a great value and the food is delicious.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappoints!Best steak in town-we have been many times and its a favorite. Always our go to for a great meal, service and experience6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent DiningWe had a reservation and were seated right away. Our service was outstanding!! When we said the filet was a "little" too rare it was immediately taken without question and brought back perfect.We asked for med rare. Generally when we ask for Medium (in other venues) it is too well done. We mentioned that we were sharing and it came out of the kitchen split for us :) We also had the sole. It was cooked to perfection as well. Great flavors all the way around!
I have been to Capital Grille in other locations....they were all good but this one was by far the best!!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMbecome one of our favoritesCapital Grille has become one of our favorite spots to eat. The food is excellent and the steaks are cooked perfectly. The side dishes are excellent6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent but expensiveFill up your wallet because the great food and service does not come cheaply. Well worth the trip For a special event. Wonderful steaks, lamb, sides, salads - everything al la cart. Amazing wines.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent ServiceThe young man that serviced us was very nice and the food was excellent. It was our son's graduation dinner. We had a very nice time.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDinnerWe ate there for our anniversary and was treated very well. There was a rose and card on table when we got there, and our waiter took a picture of us and then put it in a card and gave it to us. The food was excellent6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptionalThe food was great, the ambiance very comfortable, the service was outstanding. A little pricey, but, on balance, worth it. My wife had lobster bisque and I had the French onion soup; both were delicious, and there was a lot of lobster in the bisque. The steaks were first rate. Our server was attentive and personable.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Steaks for Special OccasionsExcellent service and food. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and sides were delicious. Service was friendly and knowledgeable. Ambiance was intimate, but a little dark, we noticed several tables using their cell phones or flash lights to aid in reading the menus. Definitely not priced as an everyday dinning option, but a treat for special occasions.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, very accommodatingThe chef went to the trouble to prepare a special dinner for my wife who is very limited in diet. He or she came up with a very creative bisque that she was found enjoyable and tasty and participate in our daughter's recent graduation celebration. But that wasn't all, everyone much appreciated the service, and thoroughly enjoyed their meals. Well done.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat all aroundTook my husband here for his birthday. He is a steak lover, so I knew he would love it, but wasn't sure I would. I was very happy with my salad and (best ever) lobster mac and cheese. Our booth was very comfortable and just private enough. The servers were attentive but not overbearing. The food is exceptionally good. Great oysters. Wish I'd had room for dessert.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMImpeccable service!The food was great, as expected, but it was our waiter, Ryan, who was the icing on the cake - he could not have been more attentive. He made our dining experience that much enjoyable.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMNice steakGood ambience, nice food, very helpful service. Expensive as all steakhouses.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentReally enjoyed the seafood appetizer. I also enjoyed the filet Oscar. Crabmeat was delicious.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiters, Tamara and/ orOur waiters, Tamara and/ or Patrick are superb. They make you feel like family but are professional.

Seating a little crowded. Makes it a little challenging for conversations. Food and drinks though are outstanding....delicious and generous! Sea Bass was wonderful. Had my favorite Bluecoat Gin! Great location for downtown visitors.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperior ServiceMy wife and I love to dine at the Capital Grill alone. This trip was to celebrate our sons 21st birthday.

Thanks again.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe capital grille impressedThe capital grille impressed us in every way. The filet mignon and delmonico steaks were amazing, as was every other item served. Wines by the glass were great.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is difficult to assessIt is difficult to assess what is the Capital Grille's best feature - the food or the service. Both are among the best in the city. Great job!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was excellentThe service was excellent and the food very good. We were four elderly people and it was a bit noisy for us.
I would return,however, any time I am in PHILADELPHIA, because it is a fun place.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMBrought party of 7 for myBrought party of 7 for my sister's bday--5/6 steaks cooked perfectly, 1 mildly overdone. Sushi tuna--amazing and cooked perfectly. Had the delmonico and kona rubbed steaks--great choices. Service was polite, not overbearing, maybe a little slow. The restaurant is a lot darker than when it first opened back in 2001 or thereabouts and was "the place" to be seen. Desserts solid but not overwhelming. Appetizers of salads, chowder, crab salad were very good. Lobster crabcake--good. Valet parking was prompt and polite. You can't go wrong with this place--prices are a lot better than barclay prime, and the knives were nice and hefty to rip your steak apart. I'd put it on par with Ruth Chris and Mortons, and a tad below Butcher&Singer4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMEach of our party of fourEach of our party of four had a different steak, and they were all delicious, as were the wonderfully prepared side dishes, particularly the Parmesan fries. The service was excellent, and, as requested, they gave us a quiet table in the corner. My only suggestion would be to serve the chocolate hazelnut cake at room temperature rather than chilled, since the icing was rather hard, and not as flavorful as when an hour later I revisited the leftover cake at home.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter was attentive withoutOur waiter was attentive without being intrusive.Half of our group had steak-cooked to erfection and the other half, lobster and sole-deliciously prepared and think our waiter's name was Eric-Saturday at 3:15. Loved him portions. A relaxing, pampered experience.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMService is the key here!The service is what really makes this restaurant stand out. Ryan, our waiter, was an absolute professional. He knew his menu, from food to wines, and he was competent at providing suggestions to us. And at the same time, he was very approachable and conversational. The food was great: steaks were prepared to order, and absolutely delicious.
I also loved that the nutritional values are listed on the menu as well. Makes it MUCH easier to make good choices at a "splurge" restaurant.
Overall, a very lovely dining experience.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was delicious and theFood was delicious and the service was great.

Otherwise it was good.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday CelebrationWe went to the Capital Grille to celebrate my sister's 50th birthday. Our server was exceptional and provided excellent customer service. He was attentive and very knowledgable about the menu, recommending several main course selections and an excellent bottle of wine. To top off the evening, he volunteered to take our picture and presented my family with a card that displayed the photo beautifully. All in all, a wonderful evening and a memorable birthday celebration for my sister!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
