Amazing experience because of the great food and also the excellent waitress, Jessica. The calamari was flavorful, unlike any other. The steak was tender and well seasoned, the mashed potatoes and Mac were rich and tasteful.

I love the Capital Grille. It truly is one of my favorite dining locations. Again, a wonderful experience...but no toilet paper or paper towels in the bathroom. For a restaurant this exclusive, this should never happen. It was a bit of a turn off. Otherwise, stellar.

Awesome birthday dinner at Capital Grille-Philadelphia. Rob was an amazing server. His attention to detail was impeccable, and gave some of the best service I’ve had in any establishment. Steaks were cooked perfectly and sides were awesome. Will definitely be visiting again soon.

Love this place. I was craving a knock-your-socks-off level of steak supremacy and Capital Grille always, always delivers! Get the steak au poivre with Courvoisier cream, and the brussel sprouts and bacon on the side - it will not disappoint! The parmesan truffle fries were pretty top notch, too. All in all, it was a really lovely dinner.

Great location. First time I went the food was not so good but dessert was great. I went back for NYE and Food tasted great! However, my husband and I asked for a medium well steak and it was more like a medium rear. Instead of pink in the middle it was still a lot of blood on the steak. I showed the waiter and he immediately took it back since I had explained to him exactly how I wanted before I even order. When he can back with the food my steak was completely burned. Unfortunately, I think I'm done going to this place.

Cold temperature in the dining room. Very cold. Sent food back because steak was over cooked and scallops were under cooked. The meal was kindly taken off the bill. The bartender asked when we had had an old fashioned not on the rocks. Perhaps she needed to feel superior. We just didn’t want a martini glass.

Memorable New Year's Eve dinner - Our table was ready when we arrived on time for our reservation. Our server was cordial, knowledgeable and helpful. My wife and I had a simple meal of filet mignon, two delicious sides and a wine recommended by our server. It was a delightful meal. We recommend the Capital Grille unequivocally.

Wasn’t up to par- first they sat us at someone else’s table which was set for a b day party... then re sat us w no apologies. App came out ridiculously fast ( calamari) and wasn’t hot or crispy- had to send back. Kitchen clearly has many popular items cooked & ready to go. Shame as used to be higher end!

I usually enjoy dining here but my lunch was diner-worthy: the lobster bisque was tasteless, my steak sliders not edible...the buns were cold as was the one-inch piece of steak on the buns. My dining companion had the salmon and it looked marvelous. The apple crisp she ordered was amazing; I was too upset to order dessert so had a mediocre espresso and called it a day. This was a catch-up lunch with a friend and I didn’t want to spoil it with complaints. The staff was wonderful.
