Kelly, our server, was on point every step of the way. From remembering a joke of how my husband likes his steak still mooing to being attentive to my mother-in-law for her birthday celebration. The caliber of the server’s hospitality is the reason why we always come back for more. Thank you for the amazing meal!

Service and food weer excellent. Our server, Catherine was very professional, attentive and friendly and helped make it a lovely evening. There was slight problem with a slightly under cooked steak and the manager handled it very promptly and returned with a steak cooked to perfection, along with new, hot mashed potatoes!

It was restaurant week so menu was special priced. We had a very late reservation 30 minutes before closing and two of our 4 meals where we had asked for fillets well done they weren’t well done. because it was late we did not send them back otherwise we would have it was disappointing that they were medium rare The other food items were very good

We tried the Capital Grill for the first time for their restaurant week specials, so it was quite a bargain since they are very pricey. However, the food was delicious, service great, atmosphere wonderful. Too expensive for regular dining, but a great place for special occasions!

We arrived 20 minutes early but we're seated right away. Our waiter was excellent. We were eating off of the restaurant week menu so the waiter explained the add on's that were available. Overall we all enjoyed our meals. I ordered the Filet Mignon cooked medium well and I thought it was closer to well done. It still tasted good. I had the creme brule for desert and it was excellent! We also loved the mashed potatoes and green beans!

A high quality dining experience. So happy to have the opportunity to try The Capital Grille during Restaurant Week. Cold crisp caesar salad, followed by perfectly prepared salmon and delicate string beans with almonds also perfectly cooked, and topped off with a wonderful creme brulee. Yum!

Went for restaurant week. The Capital Grill on Wall Street in NYC was much nicer. Seated promptly. Salad and soup were good. Came out with steak and green beans before mashed potatoes. Forgot about our creamed spinach. Steak was superb as usual. Potatoes tasted like cream. Dessert was good, cream brûlée and chocolate cake. Would probably try another steak house in Philadelphia next time.

Restaurant Week dinner was phenomenal. Lots of great choices. NY strip was perfectly prepared and very filling. Clam chowder soup was the perfect size. The mashed potatoes and string bean sides were great. Service was top notch.

Decided to try The Capital Grille for Restaurant Week, and it did not disappoint! We got there a half hour before our reservation time to sit at the bar and start off with a cocktail. The Capital Gin & Tonic was beautiful and tasty. Poured generously in a long-stem glass, it had a twist of lime and some sort of little berries. We were also given some freshly-made bar chips to snack on. For dinner, our first course was a Caesar salad, nothing special to write home about, but nice and crispy. The bread basket had a variety of rolls, including one with onions on top, a poppyseed/sesame seed roll, and a couple slices of rye. The seeded roll was pretty good, but the bread with the onion was my favorite, so soft and melt-in-your-mouth delicious. When it came time for our entrees, we decided on the filet mignon and the citrus glazed salmon with almonds. Now maybe it has to do with the fact that I had been so busy at work that I had not eaten at all this day, but I have to say the salmon was by far the best salmon I have ever eaten. The citrus almond glaze was the most intriguing mix of zing and sweet. My partner also gave me a taste of the filet mignon, and it was so tender and juicy. Our dinner also came with green beans and mashed potatoes. The mashed potatoes were exceptional, with a sweet, buttery finish. The green beans had a nice crunch. Overall 100% satisfied and will absolutely be returning for dinner again. Unfortunately I did not take any photos of the meal, I was too busy enjoying our date night.
