The service was mediocre and for the money this is inexcusable. There wasn’t one glaring infraction, it was the accumulation of many small ones. For example, tables around us were offered ‘a treat compliments of the chef’ but we were not. We were not offered fresh ground pepper by our waitress but the tables around us were as a matter of expected service. My husband’s dirty dishes between courses were promptly cleared but mine were left for an extensive period of time after I finished. We thought maybe the waitress was new so we were willing to accept some lack of consistency of service but found out she was ‘one of their best servers.’ For a restaurant that promotes a high level of professional service and charges accordingly, our experience was extremely disappointing. The food was good and at half the price I would have given a much higher rating.

My friend and I were visiting Philly and had an amazing dinner at the bar on Friday night, 6/22. I don’t remember our server name ( my problem) but she was more than amazing. Very personable and friendly. Just great. She has a daughter and has traveled to Atlanta. By far, one of the Best at all of your restaurants. Capital Grille is my favorite restaurant.

Went to the Capital Grilled to meet up with an old college friend. Quick and attentive service. Nice booth for conversation so we could catch up. The wine list was terrific and the whisky selection was as well. The waiter was fun, knowledgeable and attentive but not overbearing. The prices were steep but what you should expect fro a top end restaurant. All in all, it was a great place to meet and catch up and when the bill came, I didn't mind paying because I thought we got exactly what we wanted; Great food, wine and service all in an atmosphere that let us spend time talking and having fun.

The service was a little slow, but it was Father’s Day, so high volume time. The lobster bisque was a huge hit, even the kids! The lobster crab cakes were very good, but the filet mignon was a little undercooked. Overall we had a very good dinner and the kids liked everything except the creamer spinach. Definitely, will be frequent dinner spot.

Dined with a friend mid-week. The salad was a bit salty. Otherwise, the food was excellently prepared and served. Service is exceptional, in fact. I had the filet. It was cooked perfectly for my taste, seasoned well, and was juicy and very flavorful. My companion had steamed crab claws. they were cracked and ready to eat. Succulent and flavorful, served with either butter sauce (hot) or a spicy dipping sauce (cold). Strawberries and cream for dessert complemented by cappuccino concluded a quiet, elegantly served meal in a first-rate grille.

Husband and I went here to celebrate both of our birthday’s as well as a date night for our stay-cation. We told the restaurant ahead of time about our birthday’s. They had the table decorated for us and provided complimentary birthday desserts.
The food was excellent and our server Michael was very personable.

The bone-in filet was delicious! So tender and flavorful! We all cleaned our plates and raved about our food. The service was excellent. We had a wonderful celebration for our graduate. I loved the confetti on the table and appreciated the special dessert offered to congratulate our son. We will be back for our next special occasion.

We won at $125.00 gift certificate at charity auction and it cost us about $100.00 over that including tip. The food has always been great and we have gone several times over the years. I think it has gotten too expensive but will probably still go once or twice a year for special occasions.

Great food and location. Our waitress Jessica wasn't as attentive as I thought this restaurant would require from their staff. We waited so long to pay the lunch tab that we had to have a Manger handle the payment. Jessica appeared after payment was finalized and never even apologized for our long wait.
