“Somewhat disappointing.”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

We had been at this restaurant over the holidays and it was very good. On our return this time , it was not as good. My NY strip arrived charred on the outside and not very hot. The Lobster that added as a special was undercooked. maybe they were having a bad day.

“Consistently Good”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

The good thing about eating at an upscale chain is that you can always depend on a consistently good meal with no surprises. So while it may be a bland building designed to make you comfortable and at ease, the food is not bland, but there will be no surpirses here either. The menu will have all of the steak house items, all at high but not outrageous prices, and you know your meal will be cooked perfectly and served by professional servers who are attentive but not overly solicitous. So, if you are looking for a very good high priced meal with servers who are neither friendly nor intrusive, food that is well prepared, but very basic and only what you would expect to find, the Capital Grille should be at the top of your list. This suburban location is even more cookie cutter than most, biut it is clean and elegant if not striking. We go for important dinners with our family members who are limited in their ability to try anything not in their current array. Our steak and potatoes people are always satisfied here!

“Why did I wait so long?”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

For quite a long time, I have planned on visiting the Capital Grille in Philadelphia, but did not. Then one of their restaurants opened closer to me in King of Prussia. FINALLY made it there last night with two friends and we were all so very pleased. Our waiter, Bill, was very professional and right on top of serving us. Our food choices were wonderful, cooked as ordered and served hot. The filet oscar was as tender as one could hope for. The flourless chocolate expresso cake ~ nice end to a great meal!

“Oooo La La”
Reviewed February 17, 2012

Beautiful decor, excellent food, top notch service, and reasonable prices. We'd never seen this restaurant before, located directly across from King of Prussia Mall but wanted to try something different ... and it was! We would definitely go back again and I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to be spoiled and eat a terrific lunch. Try the Capital Cobb salad ... delicious!

“Great Food and Atmosphere”
Reviewed February 13, 2012

This is a very upscale steakhouse with tasty entrees, seafood as well as steak. The service is excellent and the wine list is high quality to match the food. It is one of the better steahouses that I've tried. Expensive but worth it for special occasions or clients.
