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 service at The Capital Grille is always spectacular. They are truly a cut above the rest for service. The food is top notch, not mind blowingly spectacular, but well worth the price. The steak was especially good.

In the mood for steaks, a local suggested Capital. He recommended making reservations. We were glad we made them. The place is very busy. What's great? 1. relaxed, dim ambiance especially the small back left room with five tables 2. carpeting made cross table conversation possible even for the hearing impaired 3. variety of entrees even if you are not...

Yes, Capital Grille has other locations....BUT if you want a consistently classy, steak house atmosphere, very good food and top drawer service, this is a restaurant that can always be relied on...The Bar menu is also excellent and worth a try!

We went here for a birthday dinner and we're treated exceptionally. When we were seated our table had a rose and birthday card welcoming us. From the beginning our service was outstanding. We ordered oysters but they ran out - the manager came to speak to us and apologized and provided us an appetizer of our choice on the house.... More

Were able to get in for an early dinner just a short walk from our hotel. Reservations are highly recommended especially for later in the evening when the place gets full. No need to elaborate. We had excellent service and delicious food. Recommend you go there if you are in the neighborhood.

We love to come here during the summer's generous pour event. The wines are surprising and wonderful. Besides the delicious food, we enjoy the staff so much! They are warm, friendly, and always make our experience an especially delightful one. We are returning to celebrate my husband's birthday - can't wait!

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.
