  • "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."

  • "Cap Grill is always great for the steak, but they servers took the time to help make the birthday celebrations memorable. 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."

  • "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."

  • "As always the Capital Grill made our dining experience exceptional. It was our anniversary which I noted on the reservation. I was greeted with a rose and card noting the event. The waiter then presented us with complimentary champaign and an a little appetizer courtesy of the chef. Our dinner was delicious, wonderful fresh crab salad at the waiters suggestion, perfect steaks, nice wine pairing. This was followed by a lovely 'Happy Anniversary dessert The Capital Grills attention to detail, friendly excellent service, warm ambience make this a perfect place to dine They made our occasion a celebration!"

  • "Our greeting was was warm & and my husband was wished a Happy Birthday. We were then seated in a booth. 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!"

  • "When I worked in Philly this was the restaurant I took clients to impress. My last visit was so disappointing I will never use this site as my go to selection. The seating was awful we were given pashminas to warm ourselves because it was so cold. The little room was loud and obviously not with the main seating area. The waitstaff, though apologetic, were not attentive. I felt like a second class citizen, and for the money we pay here, no patron should feel like their presence is not valued. This restaurant needs new vision of customer service and appreciation. NISM?"

  • "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!"

Outstanding food and spectacular service. They do all the little things that show me that we are in great hands. I couldn't recommend the place more!"

  • "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. "

  • "I took my wife and daughter to Philadelphia's Capital Grill for brunch. It was excellent in every way. Our waiters, Danny and (Vance?) were very attentive. They really catered to my wife on this special day. She felt very special. The food was great! We came into the restaurant in a good mood and left in a better mood yet. This was the first time we dined on Mother's Day at The Capital Grill. We have always had a good experience here. Honesty, however we thought the holiday would create less of an atmosphere due to the chaotic, bustle that can sometimes occur on such a busy day. The entire team handled everything quite professionally. Great Job! We will be back. "

  • "Time and again this place outs out an amazing steak that is always cooked perfect. The salads and appetizers are generous and the sides are all delicious and great for sharing. They make the best Ketel One cosmo martini too!"

  • "We arrived at 5:55 we waited at the valet for 5 mins as someone was in front then he said our vechile was over sized (a large SUV) and would be an additional $7 the cost was not the issue, the issue was that there restaurant computer system can only charge the regular $18 so we had to get the valet cash. After getting that sorted the time is 6:17, I did not think this would be an issue but when we approached the hostess counter she informed us that our booking was a no show and they canceled our reservation as we did not arrive on time by 6:15 when we told them we got held up at valet they did eventually seat us (they still were accepting walk-ins at this time so I didn't see the need for all the fuss) this left us with a bad impression."

  • "We will never return to Capital Grille. On the plus side, the service was excellent, but the food was surprisingly mediocre with a price tag of $230 (with tip) for two appetizers, two entrees, two glasses of wine, coffee and one dessert. My chopped salad was old, soggy and tasted like olive juice. I had Chilean Sea Bass which was a very good piece of fish, but bland, poorly seasoned and floating in a bed of tomato broth. Two of my husband's lamb chops were cooked medium rare (as ordered) and two were well-done. The coconut cream pie consisted of about two tablespoons of custard piled high with about two cups of whipped cream. The only good items were my husband's lobster bisque and the coffee."
