my partner decided he wanted salmon after work so i suggested capital grille..no one waiting for seating but us...and the hostess made us wait about 5 minutes before ushering us waaaay into the back of the restaurant, though we passed many empty tables...it felt like we were in the bowels of a ship so we stopped her before seating us...

We went to dinner on Easter Sunday and we all had great meals. The food was prepared perfectly as ordered and delivered promptly. The service and ambiance were great. Our server was cordial and very personable. This place is very high end, so if you go there, make sure you are willing to pay premium prices.

When you enter you feel as if you have arrived....in a republican old boys club. Lovely and hushed. The service is top notch...except for when the server reached across my body. The drinks and wine list on an iPad! A la carte...so be prepared $$$$. My porterhouse was not the best I ever had and the temperature was too close... More

We got to the restaurant around 7:30, checked in with the hostess and grabbed a seat at the bar. A little before 8 pm our table was ready and we have a wonderful waiter and a great... More

The Surf and Turf was incredibly cooked to PERFECTION!! JARED was simply a 5 STAR DELIGHT. His personality and attentiveness was a CUT ABOVE. We spent $300+ on the meal, drinks, and dessert. Expensive but definitely well worth it. Manny was also awesome adding to our fine dining experience. Hostess and coat check girl had great attitudes as well. But... More

One drink, one entrée, and a salad, $90! Wanted to order the filet, but they had a special filet on the bone that they talked a few of us into. Figured it might be a little more than the standard one on the menu for like $42. Got charged $60 for it. The filet was good, but not worth $60.... More

Had a business lunch and picked this location as it is so centrally located. The service was topped notch and the food was fantastic. I tried the lobster bisque with big pieces of fresh lobster. I also like the fact the sherry is on the side so you can control the overall flavor. For the main course i had the... 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.
