I went to Capital Grille for my anniversary. It was awesome! Our server(Danny Lenzi) was very knowledgeable and friendly. Not only that however, if they are busy the other servers step in. We had a very nice evening. I am so glad we went there....More

Stopped in on Monday, 10/23/17 during MNF when the Eagles were playing at home. Large crowd and it looked like the restaurant was a bit understaffed for the crowd they had. Food was excellent. Service a bit slow and out-of-sync, but understandable due to the...More

I always have a great experience at the Capital Grille. It is perfect for family occasions, but I also take clients here. Steak might be the main event, but their Lobster salad is also superb!

We were delighted to experience the excellent service and delicious food at the Philadelphia Capital Grille. We were attending the PA Ballet later that evening, so we selected the well-priced pre-theatre dinner. We enjoyed a large and tasty salad, well-cooked salmon, superb steak, yummy sides...More

Fillet steak and a rack of double lamb chops. The lamb was probably the best I've had albeit maybe a little too much salt seasoning. The service was good however the food took a while. Busy for a Thursday!

The limited menu was adequate, not outstanding but adequate, it was fix priced at $38 the only issue that we had was their extraordinarily strict no substitution, even for dietary reasons. The only substitution they allowed was fruit instead of the two dessert choices. No...More

This was a business dinner. They had my fave Duckhorn Merlot by the glass!! Excellent steak and calamari. And a light pineapple sorbet. It was Eric that made the business fun! Quick to serve, not pushy, wonderful stories. Reservations are a must - even mid-week.

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.
