Celebrating a birthday. Other than the seafood appetizer, I can't remember what it was named but it cost $125, the food was good. The seafood tasted blah...frozen, thawed, refreeze, thawed then prepared.

If you are in Center City Philadelphia for a business lunch with a client or friend, you can't go wrong with the Capital Grill on South Broad Street in Philadelphia. Great service is consistent and the food is outstanding!!

I visited this location on a Friday night and I would have rated 5 stars if they haven’t missed the temperature on the steak. I asked it for medium well and it came well done.

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.
