    Our servers were wonderful. This was a level of service I have not experienced in Philadelphia in years, probably since Le Bec Fin. Denise, Sophia and everyone else were top-notch, best-in-class, superior in every way. The food was delicious, the atmosphere perfect. A warm, inviting, classic room with superb jazz playing softly in the background is a rarity today. Happily, many young diners there this evening seemed thrilled to be keeping fine dining alive, too.

    Awesome service and attention and even entertainment from our waiter. Food came out quickly and made well. The sliced Filet Mignon with the fig essence was way too sweet it overpowered the meat flavor, if you decide to try that to get the blend with the onions and mushrooms, I recommend skipping the fig essence. Other steaks and chicken were made well. Risotto was okay. Their specialty is really the steak, so I will stick with that in the future.

    Very tight in there. First they tried to jamb us into a corner table by the exit door. There was several open tables, so we requested to sit somewhere else. They did oblige us, but even at the new table I had to keep moving my seat for the party behind me to get in and out. It was Saturday and the place was packed. It was very loud. When we approached the hostess with our reservation info she kind of yelled back at us "Yes, we'll get to you as soon as we can!" taken aback, I turned to another person in my group and asked did she just yell? To which my friend said, "She did, but she may have just articulated it like that so we could hear her over everyone." Steak, soups, salad, bread, and drinks all incredible. Two of the side dishes were a little more watery than I preferred. Bill was a little higher than anticipated but not by much, so I'd say reasonably priced. I would definitely eat here again, and would recommend trying, but its not my first choice for nice steak house. I only go when availability dictates.

    Not what I’ve come to expect from Capital Grill. Early New Years Eve, so didn’t expect great service. Too crowded. What I did expect was a decent cut of beef for $79. Ordered the Porcini-Rubbed Bone-In Ribeye with 15-Year Aged Balsamic. There was, it seemed like, probably 4 or 5 oz of fat and chewy gristle. So disappointed. Then to top the night, waitress gave me the wrong check almost $300, mine was closer to $200. I’ll give them another chance but I expect better for sure.

    This has been our Christmas Eve tradition for several years. Everyone loves the cocktail selection. The lobster 🦞 bisque is always a treat with the chunks of lobster. And of course the steaks are fabulous. The servers are excellent.

    Have eaten here many times prior to Covid and a family tradition for the holidays for 12 years. Steaks were very over cooked, redone, then raw. Just simply stopped sending it back and left most on the plate. Steak tartar was absolutely inedible. It was cut in huge chunks instead of being minced and full of large pieces of fat, so disgusting. Waiters came up to the table asking who ordered what. I get that at a Chili’s not Capital Grill. That would have never happened in the past.
