Great wine list! Food was top notch and well priced for the quality. Loved the location and decor. Entire staff made us feel welcomed. The surprise birthday candles really made the kids day!

For these astronomical prices we were expecting spectacular food and experience. While the filet oscar was very good, it missed spectacular as did the Chilean bass. Wait staff were good but again, not spectacular.

I wish I could give this a better review. The ambiance was lovely and the service was terrific. But the food was only average. The wedge salad was not as good as I've had a chain restaurants. The strip steak au poivre was stringy and disappointing. Skip the truffle fries--nothing special. Good coconut cream pie and excellent wine selection but... More

If you are looking for a restaurant for a larger party in Center City, Capital Grille is a good choice. The menu is varied and appeals to many palates. The service was great - very attentive and helpful. Valet parking was available for dinner.

Great Steak house with a stellar wine list. The service is very professional. Oh I almost forgot the great perfectly cooked steaks. The whole experience is second to none. Ask for the back room as it is very romantic and quite.

We could not have asked for a better experience and I would certainly return. From the minute we walked into the restaurant and met the hostesses, they were friendly and accommodating. When I made the reservation, I asked for a quiet table and we were given the most quiet space imaginable. They took this request seriously. The waitstaff was incredible... More

Came here with a friend to celebrate some great events in life. We knew this place is going to be pricey but we were prepared. The waiter was very pleasant and informative. He made personal suggestions, which is really a nice touch. The complimentary bread was really good. We enjoyed eating it. We ordered a fingerling potato cooked in vinegar... More

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.
