Ambiance is great. Drinks were delicious. I wish I knew there was meat in the mashed potatoes before ordering them, though. Our waitress was very nice and attentive.

I loved dining at Capital Grille! It was a quiet refuge from a stormy night. The server quickly responded to my request for a smaller filet than listed on the menu—just right. All the food... and the wine, was excellent.

We go to Capital Grille often for pre-theater dinner. We usually enjoy it very much. This time though, our main entrees were not as good as usual, steak was full of non-edible parts, and turnedos a bit too salty and overcooked. Service is always very good.

Love the Capital Grille especially this one. There were 8 of us in our party and we were seeing Jim Gaffigan at the Met. We had a 5:15 reservation but called in to say we were running late. When I called I asked if we could order apps and drinks , the young lady I was speaking to said sure. When we arrived the apps and drinks were ready for us.
Jared , our waiter , knew the rush we were in and was on top of our order. The food, wine and stoli dolis were awesome.
Thanks to the entire staff !

My boyfriend and I dined here to celebrate my birthday. We had a great night with our server, Joffrey. We noticed early in our night that the table that had sat next to us had walked out on her bill. The wait staff was very professional about the ordeal and didn’t make a big commotion over it. We were simply able to notice it as we are in the industry ourselves. Despite having a customer walk out on him, Joffrey remained his composure and was still able to deliver excellent service to my boyfriend and I. Thank you, Joffrey!

Amazing food, great atmosphere. Love going to a place where folks still dress up and look great. While our server was super nice, the service was lacking. It didn't feel like the normal Cap Grille experience. We are hopeful this was a one off experience and would likely go back, but would probably stick with the King of Prussia location where we had a stellar experience. I do want to note that the manager came over and spoke with us afterwards and apologized and gave us complimentary ports which was nice.

For the price the food was really just average. The appetizer and steak and lobster were very good, the mashed potatoes were too salty. For the price I would expect more!

For my first time there, the experience was not pleasant. The place looked nice, food was ok, but the service was horrible. I waited for my waiter for over a half and hour. Even by then another person had to take care of us while we still waited for the waiter that never showed.

We were a party of five celebrating the birthday of our sister. Our meal was pleasantly paced by our server, Joffrey, who was attentive and helpful with wine list recommendations. Our appetizers (salads all around) were fresh and delicious. Each of us ordered steak entrees and all were delivered to the perfect temperature. Our side of asparagus, truffle fries and Brussels sprouts, were all very good as well. We return here for special occasions again and again because it is consistently excellent and we always have a great time.

The only thing that was bothersome was the hostess. She sat two tables of people that came in after us. All groups of 2. We all had the same time reservation. When I asked her why she just put her head down and said nothing. No explanation!

We had not been to a Capital Grille in a long time. We were not disappointed. The food and service were outstanding. One of our guest has a seafood and peanut/treenut allergy. Our server was very diligent and made the necessary accommodations to have an enjoyable evening. We will certainly be making many visits to the Capital Grille.

The experience was good with the exception of patrons at a table next to us who were flagged for drinking and ended up flipping their table., with broken dishes and food flying everywhere. The staff handled it well. We were reseated at another table and our bill was picked up by the manager.

I’ve dined at Capital Grille several times before but this by far was the worst experience I’ve ever had at this establishment. Our server Rob was inattentive, they ran out of their most popular pumpernickel bread and the ambience was extremely loud. However my steak was cooked to perfection and the overall meal was good. But the lack of service and inattention was atrocious. Because I’ve dined here several times before I’m going to say this was a 1 off Restaurant week mishap, but I should be able to receive the same standard of service I’ve become accustomed to no matter when I eat here.

We were seated at the very back of the restaurant in the corner. The couple that joined us made a joke, were we bad students ❓Our waiter seemed to be else where mentally , we had to ask for butter for our bread, he even brought the check and did not bring dessert. The food was excellent as usual. We had a fun evening thou with our friends. We have always had wonderful waiters prior to Friday’s dinner.

It was the last day of winter CCD restaurant week and this is our favorite place to go during this time. It never disappoints and was a great experience this time too.
The food was excellent and my steak perfect. My friend’s salmon was perfect too as they know salmon very well. And the veggies were done perfectly too.
And the creme brûlée was to die for.
If you want an excellent dinner at a good downtown price, this is the place to go!!!!!

The Capital Grille Is a solid but unspectacular restaurant. What it does, it does well. However, it is not very creative. It is designed for a business person’s lunch that appeals to all, and it does that effectively.
