Not cheap but the steaks and drinks are fantastic. Convenient location to the local theaters in a good place to have a meal after or before a show

Our family of four treated an international student from Burundi to a great dining experience at the Capital Grille. We love the fillets and during restaurant week the $35 price for a three course meal is one of the best options in town. The chocolate...More

Undrinkable "mojito de uvas", fully charged despite complaints. Cold steak. Unremarkable service. Advice: don't eat solo at the bar!

Very good steak, excellent service, but a bit pricey, of course. Nice atmosphere and a good wine list.

Very good lunch and great service besides a little slow. Had steak salad and was cooked perfectly. Also, you must try the banana cream pie, not too rich or too sweet.

The food was superb and the service was excellent. I had the roasted chicken with potatoes and spinach and it was delectable. Everyone in our party enjoyed the food. Pricey but if you want a great meal you won't be disappointed.

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.
