What a place! The ambiance is perfect as soon as you walk in the door. Our table was perfect. Food is outstanding and perfectly cooked. The tenderloin and lobster tail was delicious. The sauce was tasty. Our server Joffrey, was outstanding. Engaging and knowledgeable. Made the whole dinner experience truly memorable. Thank you

Our server Nick was an absolute delight, and managed to keep us on schedule for our show. He was super efficient and fun too. The food was great too--I'm only sorry that I couldn't take a to-go bag with me.

The restaurant was crowded. I think the waiter was new. I ordered steak, and he didn't bring a steak knife. I got up and asked the first waiter I saw to give me a steak knife, which he did.
The food was good, although not the best steak I've ever had.

I took my husband there for a birthday dinner and boy did they make us feel special! Rob was an incredible server, and they even decorated our table with confetti and a nice note. We had delicious wine (thanks Rob for the recommendation) and both LOVED our meals! Will definitely be returning whenever we are back in Philly!

First, Jill Marie was our server for the night, and she was incredible. From providing that welcoming smile and great personality, to sharing important information about each dish, Jill Marie was terrific. The wine list is unmatched. The food was impeccable prepared, and the dessert was delicious. Great place for that special occasion!

Great repeat waiter (Chris ); as a regular when I’m in town was disappointed by the hostess and her attitude and reluctance to sit my party where I requested .

Dinner was great at The Capital Grille in Philly tonight! We came here after seeing The Philly Pops: Pops Goes to Hollywood at the Kimmel Center. Danny, our waiter, was fun and entertaining as always! For drinks, I had soda, and Mom and Dad had iced tea. For appetizers, Dad ordered the Wedge Salad with bleu cheese and smoked bacon. He really enjoyed it! Mom ordered the Field Greens Salad which consisted of butter leaf lettuce and heirloom tomatoes served with a Parmesan vinaigrette dressing. I had ordered a bowl of the Caramelized French Onion Soup. It was very delicious with caramelized onions, croutons, and melted Gruyere cheese! I HIGHLY recommend it!! We also had rolls and bread too. For the main course, Mom ordered the Fresh Maine Lobster. Dad ordered the Filet Mignon, which was cooked perfectly. He really enjoyed it! I ordered the Sliced Filet Mignon with cipollini onions, wild mushrooms, and fig essence. It was delicious!! I also ordered sides of Sam's Mashed Potatoes and Creamed Spinach, my two favorites!! For dessert, Mom ordered coffee with sugar and milk. Dad a sampler plate of the Flourless Chocolate Expresso Cake with cocoa powder and fresh raspberries, and The Capital Grille Cheesecake served with fresh berries. I ordered the Warm Double Chocolate Cake with vanilla ice cream and no cherries. So good!! Ken, the general manger, came by to say hello and to see how our meal was. We cannot wait to come back again soon!

We usually have an excellent meal at Capital Grille however on this occasion, service was very slow and 3 out of 4 steaks were over cooked. The waiter exchanged them quickly but it dampened the occasion.

Food was good. We know it was the last night of restaurant week so they wanted to get the food out as quickly as possible and get us out and get the next people in their quickly. Dining in there is not cheap and we have been there many times but we felt rushed. Our waiter was good though and attentive.

We went during restaurant week. We’ve been to CG at least 20 times in the past. We never go to this location because every time the service is horrible. Waiter didn’t come for at least 15 minutes to introduce himself. Came and took drink orders then when my mother asked for sugar for the tea ( which he should’ve brought when he delivered the drinks) he began to scold her and tell her that all their tea is unsweetened. That’s not what she asked. She just asked for some sugar packets. Salads were a bit wilted as if they had been sitting in dressing for a while. Dinner came and the food runner mixed up two of the steaks. My mother and daughter were going to switch plates and the food runner told them they can’t do that. Then he proceeds to ask my daughter if she just wanted to switch. Which is what they would have done in the first place my sisters steak was supposed to be medium well it came out too red and when sent back it came out well done. The creme brûlée was burnt on top. We will continue to go to CG but not the Center City location. It is the worst!!!

Our server may have been overwhelmed by the number of diners in the small room we were seated. He was very slow in responding to the drink ordered and taking our food order. I had to ask several times for a separate plate to put the lobster tail shells as well as my asparagus which was not delivered until I was nearly finished my lobster tails. NOT GOOD!!
