Diner Reviews
  • "This was my second time dining at the Center City Location (once in cherry hill). The waiters both times were engaging. Our most recent waiter was Colin. He was nothing short of amazing. He was very professional and well versed on the food that CG Serves. He kept us entertained and did I when joking with him. The food was amazing. I had the lamb chops for the second visit. Best lob Mac n cheese I ever had. Although I am not a fan of lobster. Looking forward to dining again very soon!!!"

  • "As always the food was outstanding. Not just the great steaks, but the fish and side dishes too. However, uncharacteristically the service was not up to usual level. The usual accommodating style of the waitstaff was not present. Our waiter made us feel like every request was some monumental burden and in some cases said no. We have eaten at this CG as well as others and have always been so impressed by the staff."

  • "Capital Grille has quickly moved up to the top of my list of favorite steak houses. My steak au poivre was generous and out of this world, but it just starts there. A superb wedge salad began the meal, and Strawberries concluded it. Every morsel of food was excellent, perhaps only outdone by the service. Our waiter was friendly, attentive and knowledgable. In short, a real pro and a pleasure"

  • "I went here with my fiancée to celebrate our two year anniversary. I knew it was going to be good because it's a high end restaurant and I wouldn't come here otherwise since I normally don't have the money to come here regularly. We got there a little before our reservation and they didn't have a problem seating us. We sat in a small intimate room with a few tables around. The music is low and romantic and the lighting is also low but that's to keep the ambiance. Anyways the waiter was great, very helpful and knowledgable and paired my wine to the steak fantastically. We told our waiter it was our anniversary and he surprised us by bringing out dessert with "happy anniversary" written on the plate on the house."

  • "One would never guess that the Capital Grille is a chain restaurant. The service was exquisite. We were all impressed that the servers were well-trained and knowledgeable about the food selections. The food and drinks were carefully prepared according to everyone's requests. The meal was well paced, very leisurely, and at no time at all did we feel rushed. Everyone was friendly and helpful, which made our dining experience very pleasant. We will definitely be returning to the Capital Grille in the future."

  • "Worst service I've ever had in a Capital grille, very dissapointed. Food was ok, but with so many other great choices for steakhouses in downtown philly, they need to improve their service. A wake up call for the manager of this location to put more sttention to detail."

They had a birthday card on the table and offered a free desert for my wife and son. Always nice when service and food come together for a great evening. Steaks as usual were perfect."

This side of the restaurant has that clubby feel and is on the darker side, so take your reading glasses. The food was delicious. Steaks done to perfection. Lobster bisque had large chunks of lobster. And the complimentary birthday celebration for my husband was wonderful."

  • "I had decided on the sirloin, when the waiter started reciting the specials. I nearly cut him off when he started telling me aobut the chef's salad. Who goes to a place called the Capital Grille for a salad. But this was no ordinary salad. The salad itself was outstanding, but it was also covered with a surf (5 large grilled shrimp) and turf (3 large filet mignon medallions). This was one of the best lunches I have ever had, notable for both the food and the service."

  • "...even better service! Travelling on business, as a party of one I normally eat at the bar which can be problematic. Ordered lamb chops medium rare, they came out closer to medium well; the bar staff noticed and essentially demanded I have it replaced (which I did). It's refreshing to see staff that genuinely care about the customer experience in an establishment!"

  • "The Capital Grille did not disappoint. Because much time passes between opportunities to dine here, I forget just how excellently everything is done--from service to meals. Our party of 4 enjoyed the pre-theater menu. Whether the filets, which were done to perfection in the manner we ordered, or salmon, all in our party were delighted with their choice. Drew, our server was excellent, attentive and anticipating our needs with a smile. Something deceivingly simple is a bold, rich cup of coffee--surprisingly difficult to get consistently in my opinion. The Capital Grille knows a great cup of coffee and delivers every time. Our dining experience was on par with the wonderful John Legend performance that followed. What a beautiful evening out!"

  • "While never over the top, The Capital Grill is always a great, competent steak house with a wonderful dining atmosphere and good to great service. We had a wonderful dinner in the heart of the city. My only pet peeve is the lack of a top end wine list and a caviar option, but that wouldn't stop me from coming back."

  • "It was my daughters graduation and everyone went out of their way to accommodate us very nicely. Our waiter was wonderful he brought us all out a complimentary lobster appetizer that was absolutely delicious. We enjoyed a large variety of different breads and rolls. Our entrees were amazing, my daughter and I has the chef's selection which was a porterhouse steak topped with crabmeat and a bernaise sauce.....it melted in your mouth. Dinner followed by complementary dessert for all of us that consisted of the variety of berries and whipped cream, espresso chocolate cake, and a creme brulee cheesecake. The overall experience was wonderful I would definitely come back. "
