Very dark and quiet restaurant for a fine dinner out. Server was average. Food was above average quality with large portions and ala carte pricing. Watch the cocktail prices and bring your wallet for the check.

We went last year for restaurant week! So good we wanted to go back! We started off well with apps but my steak that the menu lists it as 14oz bone in ribeye is the kona which we had last year. Well apparently you need to specify a rub if you want it which our waiter did not explain. We... More

Disappointed. Had halibut that was cooked a little too long. Others in the party had steak which tasted great. Stick with steak. Service was OK.

We are celebrating our anniversary this weekend and had a wonderful experience. We ordered from the restaurant week menu and everything was delicious and cooked exactly to our preferences. Christopher, our server, was very attentive and helpful and also presented us with a special dessert for our anniversary, which was a thoughtful touch. This was our first time at the... More

Some of the best steaks in Philly (not cheesesteaks... ) - Lobster Mac & Cheese was amazing.. Seafood Starter for the table was amazing... staff and service was amazing. Absolutely zero complaints - do yourself a favor and eat here

Pricey but worth every US cent! Customer service was exceptional; by far the best I have ever experienced. Food was delicious and the restaurant ambience exquisite. I had blue cheese salad to start, steak au poivre and Pinot Noir. Before the ordered food arrived there was a warm freshly baked bread basket with creamy butter and amuse bouche. Simply perfect!

Never had a bad meal here. You should make a reservation. It is dressy. Service is professional and excellent. You can often see city hall cronies having lunch. Just hope the taxpayers aren't paying for it. The menu is pricey but there is a good lunch deal and a pre theatre dinner deal.

Great meals. Everything was delicious. Top of the line establishment. Jessica B was our server. She is the best. All the staff are very welcoming and helpful. Your satisfaction is their priority.

Consistent quality every visit. There's nothing I don't like about The Capital Grille in King of Prussia, PA. Service is top notch, food is outstanding and the fun to be had is amazing. If you want a steak, it's The Capital Grille or nothing else.

Great steak and fish; cooked to order. Appetizers were unique and well flavored. Staff was ok, but often had to track down. Expect to pay 100 per person with 2-3 drinks , appetizers and dinner.

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.
