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. It was excellent and the staff took extra special care of us. We really enjoyed ourselves.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat lunch!The food is very good and the staff is always on the ball. 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 AMI really wanted to love it but...I went last year to Capital Grille, and then came back this weekend as I had attended a fashion show downtown and wanted to treat my mom somewhere nice. The food is still so-so. The service is really what makes up for it, because for the prices they charge, I am never wowed here, nor do I feel like I will be back anytime soon. The calamari appetizer I ordered was not crispy enough, and while Calamari can have a chewy texture to it, most places I've had it at usually make it crispier and lighter. The lobster mac n cheese was very good! My mom's french onion soup was good, but she said the consistency of the cheese was such as they had used too much and it was just too thick to swallow. The food is decent,just not up to par for the place4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was delicious and theFood was delicious and the service was great. It was my mother's first time and she thoroughly enjoyed it!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual Capital Grille didAs usual Capital Grille did not disappoint us. It is one of our favorites. Monique our server was fantastic. Very personable and quick on her toes. There were four of us and we all enjoyed our choices for dinner.

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 AMGreat steakhouse!!!Great service!!!Great steakhouse!!!Great service!!!

Steaks were excellent quality but very overcooked - medium well and well.We considered sending them back but we just did not feel like it. I am sure they would have provided properly cooked steaks - but it always throws off your whole meal - the rest of which has already arrived. Waitstaff was superior.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant for any occasionsGreat restaurant for any occasions including business lunches3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMwe always look forward towe always look forward to dinner at capital grille. it gets better each time!!! our server this time was Rebecca L. and she was great! she really knows her stuff!!this restaurant is truly a wonderful place to dine...it has it all! the meal as usual was superb from calamari to soup/salad to lobster cake to steak! desserts were outrageous this time! thx, capital grille for a nice evening!3/1/2013 12:00:00 AMlove, love, love the capitallove, love, love the capital grille. everything is ALWAYS consistantly excellent from the food to the servers to the wonderful treatment by everyone working at capital grille philly!12/14/2012 12:00:00 AMA classic steak house.
