Food was great as usual. Service by Joffrey deserves 6 stars! He manages to make the whole experience even better.
We also loved the generous pour promotions. Great way to experience new wines.

We have been to this restaurant several times in the last few months and a few times over the last 10 years. Incredibly consistent food quality and service. We live near K of P and there is a Capital Grille there. It is a nice restaurant and provides a pleasant experience. We still make the drive to cc to eat at this one and pay for parking. Enough said.

This is a go to place for business as well as pleasure. The location downtown is very convenient. Relaxed at the bar for a chat and cocktail, then off to enjoy dinner. The noise level was nice as we could enjoy time talking and not needing to strain.

Excellent dinner.

I have to this Capital Grille in Philly a few times now with clients and with my family. Never disappointed. Always great food and experience. It is a bit pricey but that's what this level of quality and consistency commands.

We come annually for a Rib Eye steak and Blanton' bourbon the rocks. The rib eye was closer to rare than medium, I didn't enjoy it, and there was no Blanton's bourbon. The service was excellant

Steak was great. Tender, perfectly cooked. Crabmeat topping was very fresh (I am a self-proclaimed expert on crab freshness). Vege’s were very nice as well. Dessert was a disappointment. The Coconut Cream Pie - well, let’s just say TastyCake would have been better. And the noise level was higher than I expected - but then again, the place was busy. Service (Robbie) was outstanding.

Awesome lunch today. The French onion was the best I have ever had. Perfect! Excellent filet Mignon with remarkably divine mashed potatoes. Superior selection of wines available by the glass. Top notch service!

The “capital grille” steak Cobb salad was disappointing. The lettuce was not fresh and the steak was mediocre. The restaurant could use an upgrade in decor and the ladies bathroom needs air fresheners. Waiter was nice but had a hyper demeanor.

Dinner for 2. Had the Cold Shellfish Platter which was a great size for two people before a big steak dinner. Went with the Bone-In Kona and Porcini Rubbed Bone-In Ribeye. The Porcini rub was standout. Our server, Eric Van Holtum, was fantastic; welcoming, friendly, and insightful.

Our steaks were barely warm and not cooked to our specifications. The service was extremely slow. The restaurant was mostly empty and our server wasn’t very attentive. He chose only to check on my husband during the meal instead of asking both of us about our meals. Very disappointing. This was one of my favorite restaurants in the city and our recent experience was lousy. With so many other options to try I doubt we will be going back anytime soon.

I had a poor experience at this restaurant. Especially for the cost. The steak was over cooked for all members of the party that ordered it. One was so off the request, it had to be returned. The kitchen took so long to redo the order - despite the restaurant being relatively empty, the rest of the party was finished eating. As a result, we refused the order and she ended up eating nothing. The event was specifically planned to celebrate her birthday. In general, service was poor and the experience was extremely disappointing.

The Capital Grille in Philadelphia never disappoints and is a staple when I visit the city. This visit exceeded the usual expectations because of our server Joffrey. He was invested in our dining experience and made an effort to get to know us. On my next visit, I will definitely make sure to request to be seated in his section. The food is always exceptional.
