Classic steakhouse menu in a superb setting. Fine dining is reflected in the price of the menu items and attire of the guests.

Great restaurant not far from my hotel. Unbelievable professional service. Crusted shrimp starter was sooooo mouth watering and chicken main was delightfully proportioned. Washed down with Blue Moon beer. Wonderful combo. Would definitely go back.

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.
