The Grille got us a table on very short notice, much appreciated! The waiters were excellent as was the food. They have a great wine list and mix a solid cocktail! Can't say enough positive things about the experience.

If you enjoy a more upscale dining experience then I highly recommend this place. Excellent service by the staff and food that is delicious. Don't forget your formal-wear when dining here.

Disappointed with my 10 oz medium cooked filet. It was a little over cooked. It was just not a good piece of meat for the money. Service is great. Atmosphere is nice. Morton's would have been a better choice.

My former boss took me here for a special event in my life. The food was very good and also the service. My only complaint was the noise level and the closeness of the tables.

The Avenue of the Arts is the perfect avenue to dry aged steaks, too. Philadelphia Magazine declared The Capital Grille “a carnivore’s dream.” Top off your fabulous meal with dreamy Chocolate Espresso Cake or Crème Brulée. Then stroll it off on your way to Kimmel Center or the theatre.
