We had a 5 star experience from Bill (our attentive server) and the entire staff at Capital Grille.
I was treated to a delicious birthday lunch here - and everything from the greeting by name when I arrived, to the f9ond farewell was top-notch.
The food was the star of the show - and our table was decorated with rose petals and confetti in honor of my birthday. They also snapped a picture of me and my dining companions at dessert.
My meal consisted of truly perfect french onion soup (A cup was perfect for me - they also offer a crock), and the lobster salad. I asked for extra tomatoes and they added a variety of heirloom cherry halves and beefsteak slices. Delicious. Topped with a shelled lobster claw. Scrumptious.
Every bite was blissful.
Can't believe it's a chain - but I have dined now at a few CGs and all are excellent.
very expensive - Lunch for 3 was over $150, so plan accordingly.
A special treat, indeed.
Kudos to Chef Joe (Chef Joe Koye) for a delectable gluten-free meal for our event last night at a private residence. We had several Kosher and vegetarian people plus the hostess is a gluten-free celiac person, so we really enjoyed the creative buffet as follows:
A gorgeous whole poached salmon - artfully presented on a bed of thinly sliced lemons. The "scales" of the fish were thin slices of cucumber - stunning! The accompanying cucumber/dill/cream was yummy.
On the vegan side we had a lovely wild rice salad with black beans, a fresh salad of haricot verts and red peppers (simple and tasty) and my favorite QUINOA - this quinoa was lightly dressed in a lemony/oil (but it was not at all oily) and contained halved, red tear-drop tomatoes, magical mushrooms and sweet, sweet summer-fresh corn.
That Quinoa was a five star delight in and of itself.
What a feast!
I am lovin' Wild Blue and will definitely use them when I have a need for private catering.
KK and Sur La Table are my go-to K of P kitchen gadget places.
I needed a sno-cone maker - and they had one (It was $70 - ouch!).
But they also had these cool (literally) ice pop makers, too. ($15 - $40).
Love to poke around here.
Friendly service and BIG portions of very good food. However the prices are too high. I'd gladly come more often to get a lower priced platter (I like platters better than sandwiches) and a smaller portion.
That said, for $11.95 I took 1/2 my meal (lots of great rice, Doner and roasted tomato plus lavash) home. And it came with a fountain drink (again - knock $1.50 off and I'd gladly skip that - I like water.)
Super-friendly ladies offered us samples of the savory beef stew. (My friend ordered that).
Schoeneman's is great for purchasing esthetic, waxing and beauty supplies. Caters "to the trade" only. I get my Tweezerman Tweezer's here and OPI, CND & Essie Nail parapherNAILia.
Great to have them around.
Kitchen gadget central. Love it here - and great for wedding and shower gifts. Kinda expensive - but many of these things just ARE expensive (like espresso machines and a sno-cone makers).
Fun place to shop and knowledgeable staff.
JC Penny is trying hard to resurrect its failing business.
Prices are, indeed, somewhat lowernow - no coupons or a sale every other week.
Decent variety of ladies and kids clothes.
It's a 3 star place but I am giving 4 stars for the extremely well-executed holiday party we threw here for our party of 9.
Granted, the food was family style - which meant it all came out promptly - but it was actually good (Chicken Parm, Chicken Marsala and a baked ziti with meat in it). Best of all were the huge platters of (very good) tira-misu.
Chrissy our server brought cappuccino and beverages right away.
Considering how busy and crowded the restaurant was (and the place is huge) with every holiday party under the sun - groups from 6 to 36 at long tables - the service was AMAZINGLY good.
For a faux-talian chain.
It's huge. Between the Court & The Plaza you can literally get everything here- if you don't mind paying retail. I usually eat at Ruby's with a girlfriend and then hit New York & Company. (See my other reviews.)
Avoid at holiday time - it's a giant parking-lot filled with chaos and annoyance.
If you are a teenager - this place is 4 - 5 stars but I am officially a grown up now - so 3 stars from me!!!
I am a Saladworks gal - but this location is just OK - I have seen better (and worse) in size, layout and cleanliness.
That said the ingredients are usually fresh enough - I had a spinach-based salad with shrimp & artichoke hearts. $10 every time I go.
Super crowded during the weekday lunch rush - go before 11:40 AM or after 1:30 PM.
I am vacillating bewteen a 2 and a 3.
Grabbed a quick sushi (4 pieces of nigiri and 1/2 a california roll) and it was $12.00 and change after tax. Yikes.
The Salmon was fine - but the tuna tasted a bit old.
Mall Sushi. Serves me right, I should know better.
I will not be back in a hurry and if I return I will try the "cooked" food instead.
The hot food looked OK but there were alot of fried items.

|The fish must be fresh. The sushi divine. Try Omakase at Nobu, Morimoto or Vic for a memorable dining experience.||Japanese, Chinese, Hawaaian, Pacific Rim, Korean, Malaysian, Viet Namese, Thai? It's all good in this Pan-Asian Bonanza. (Mostly East Coast - NYC, Philly, NJ. Stay tuned for the CA and HI Kahunas!|

I got a new job - and it's in Chesterbrook, PA.
