Diner Reviews
  • "When making our reservation, we asked for a "nice" table as we were celebrating our anniversary. Well, we got that and more! From the hostess, to our table escourt, to our wonderful waiter, everyone wished up a happy anniversary. Our table had a long stem rose and a "happy anniversary" card, and we were treated to a special dessert plate (complimentary!). Our waiter took our picture, which he presented to us in a nice folder. Beyond the special occasion touches, our waiter also found ways to make us feel special. We didn't order an appetizer because we planned on ordering dessert (priorities!), yet he brought us each a delicious "lollipop" lamb chop to "tied us over." All this made our special occasion truly memorable!"

  • "Friday night, group of 6, couldn't hear each other very well at all. Great food, I will go again but on a less crowded night. Recommended for food and service but would stick to going with smaller groups to facilitate interaction by proximity!!"

  • "We have been to Capitol Grill at several locations many times before. The service we received from our server, Adrian, the other staff and the manager who stopped by was superb. We will remember the service from Adrian and will ask for her when we return. Any future service during restaurant meals will alway be compared to the excellent service we received at Capitol Grill. Adrian is a real gem!"

  • "Food was phenomenal. Waiter was excellent. It was so noisy my date and I couldn't even hear ourselves talk. That is the only thing that disappointed us. Whether we go again or not remains to be seen."

  • "Jared is by far the best waiter I have ever had. Normally get filet with some kind of seafood, but he reccomended the lamb chops. They were fantastic!! Great time."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "We have dined at Capital Grille several times and have always loved it. I give it one less star this time than I usually do because the porterhouse steak was a little on the chewy side. The filet mignon portion of the steak was great -- melted in your mouth. But the sirloin side was a bit chewy. I think I should have ordered just a filet mignon. But otherwise, the tomato mozzarella salad was delicious (great dressing!) and the truffle fries were wonderful! I got a complementary dessert as it was my birthday, and the chocolate cake was out of this world! So do go, as it is a great spot, but be sure about the steak because they don't run cheap!"

  • "As usual the attention to detail never ceases to amaze me. The staff runs the restaurant with precise ness of a well oiled machine. We had Dirk as our server. He was there but not overbearing. The tuna was cooked just right & the lobster & crab cakes were superb."

  • "In our group of five, there were four who had never experienced a Capital Grille meal. Now they wonder why! From the filets to the lobster to the sea bass to the spinach and potatoes, down to the last bites of dessert, everyone agreed this was an outstanding meal. We were welcomed and seated right away, which set the tone for the evening. Service was great -attentive without being intrusive. The wine list is extensive but not overwhelming. Capital Grille never disappoints."

  • "Food was outstanding. The lobster bisque is incredible with chunks of lobster. Filet Oscar and filet with porcini rub were great choices and were done to perfection. The entire dining experience was enhanced by an outstanding waiter. John Kelly had great recommendations and superb knowledge of steaks. He was attentive and polite- a real pro. The food was great but the waiter really made the experience."

  • "The sirloin arrived done to perfection. Tender flavorful and wonderful! Companion had some wonderful salmon. Chopped salad was large and filled with goodies. This is definitely the best steakhouse in Philly!"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Sure, the waiters were attentive and polite and followed all the rules. What threw off my lunch was the fact that I waited outside in 20 degree cold 10 minutes before the opening time shivering while the staff inside watched. Why not, open the door and let me stand inside?"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Elegant, comfortable, excellent food (and variety that lets chow hounds and those more diet conscious all be satisfied)--just love Capital Grille for lunch after a business meeting."

  • "We were seated about 5 minutes before our 7pm Sat. night reservation. Waitress arrived promptly and took our drink order. After telling up about the specials that evening, she left to allow us to go over the menu. We ordered salads and main course which we thoroughly enjoyed. After being presented with and enjoying a complimentary birthday dessert, we received our check and were on our way before 8pm. The best part was we didn't feel rushed at all. Amazing turn around . . ."

  • "We cannot say enough about the restaurant! We were not rushed through our meal. We had such a great night!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We love to go to the Capital Grille for special occasions because the steaks are consistently outstanding. I enjoyed the Kona Bone-In Sirloin while my wife had the Filet Mignon. Both were cooked perfectly and melted in our mouths. My cup of lobster bisque was loaded with large pieces of lobster and delicious. (The bowl size would almost served as a meal). The service is very efficient but not rushed. The wine list is long and there are some nice ones by the glass. Best steaks in the city in my view."

  • "We ate at Capital Grille for the third time, and loved it as always. I knew that their steaks were excellent, but I was surprised at the flavor of their seafood - notably the crab legs, which were as good as any lobster tails I have had. The service was superb, and the portions substantial. We were too full for dessert, so we asked to take one piece of their delicious chocolate cake home with us. Upon arriving home, we were shocked to see that it was the size of three normal pieces."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "For starters, we have been here several times and have never had a bad meal or service. Our server Robert was one of the best in the business, great personality and was able to guide us to exactly what we desiring for an appetizer and entree. The prosciutto wrapped mozzarella is to die for and my wife ordered the filet which for most you can not go wrong. For myself I went with the porcini Delmonico and Robert suggested getting it with the Kona rub on it which put this already fantastic cut on the next level. After our entrees we went to desert and he made the suggestion of the chocolate hazelnut cake a la mode which was a great end to a fabulous night. We can not wait to go here again."
