A premium steak was served that looked like it would be served in a college cafeteria. Simply not what I have learned to love about Capital Grille. CG will no longer be our favorite.

It was my granddaughter’s 14th birthday. This was the fifth year in a row we’ve gone there for her birthday. Each year is wonderful. They do a great job. In past years we’ve gone for lunch which is a little bit less expensive that dinner however everything was great.

Very distracted bartender/server who spend the entire evening chatting it up with two people at the bar. Quiet night but a struggle to get her attention and remedy issues we had with her incorrect ordering, overcooked appetizer, forgetting bread and accessories, etc.
We've had great food and service here previously but fault this individual (and restaurant management for not seeing this occurring) for not being properly attentive to the rest of the bar.

Absolutely a perfect dinner! We enjoyed the seafood tower, and all steaks cooked to perfection and sea bass amazing. Our server had excellent understanding of the menu and recommendations on cooking style etc. Brussels sprouts are AMAZING. This was our 2nd business dinner here --- and will be returning! Location is perfect as well.

Steak was a little dry and two members of the party were given each other steaks. One medium rare given to the medium well person. They did not complain and ate it anyway. Shouldn’t have happened.

Capital Grill provided a great experience for a first date. Steak tartare made an excellent appetizer and then we both enjoyed Kona Dry Aged Strip Steaks. Unfortunately, the date did not go as well as the food, so I will definitely be back for my next first day.

We’ve been to Capitol Grille numerous times over the past 10 years. Always has been a pleasant experience from service to food. However this latest time we were there, the service was lacking. The waiter seemed not really into servicing us properly. No name was given from the start (I had to look on his name tag), No drink orders were offered, (I had to ask) He took our orders after about 25 minutes. The bread came out 30 minutes after we sat down. My empty drink sat there for about 25 minutes waiting for a refill that I finally had to ask for. It was my husband’s birthday and the waiter was about to give us the check and not present us with the complimentary birthday cake had my husband not been holding the birthday card placard. But noticed my husband holding the birthday placard and turned back with the check and returned with the dessert. Not sure if you were short staffed that night, but it was less than what I had expected from one of my favorite restaurants. The recent restaurant boom in CC has given us many options to choose from for a pleasant dining experience.

We like to sit at the bar very comfortable for us, the appetizers that we order are always top notch, cannot speak about the entrées therefore kind of overpriced.

My girlfriend and I were celebrating Valentine’s Day. I’ve been more times than I can count but the past year has been hit or miss at best. I ordered bone in rib eye. I couldn’t eat it. I needed a saw to cut that steak. Huge disappointment. My girlfriend had the filet mignon which she loved. I left 3/4 of my food uneaten. It’ll be a long time before I venture back. So sad I loved Capital Grille. To many other awesome steak places in Philly to go back anytime soon. Spent over $200.00. 🤬

It was Valentine’s Day and they sat us around 45 minutes past our res time and proceeded to mess up half the orders. Steak was Pittsburgh rare when asked for mid rare. Took streak off of the table and threw the entire plate in the broiler instead of cooking a new one. They over booked and did not do well
