One of the best experiences we've had at a Jacksonville, Fl restaurant. This was 5 star service and five star food at it's finest. Be prepared for 5 star prices on their a-la-carte menu.

Aside from the fact that my wife and I had one of the best steaks of all time, cooked perfectly, the crispiest Parmesan truffle oil fries, and the best wedge salad, the service was outstanding. My wife and I have been to many steakhouses all over the country and this ranks as the best, ant that includes Capital Grills in... More

I must of got lucky and got them on a good night because the service and food was exceptional. Dan, the restaurant manager got us in with no reservations on a crowded Friday night. Service was outstanding. Both of our steaks were cooked to perfection. Very enjoyable experience and dining!

We were on the road traveling back home from Charleston, SC when we decided we really wanted a good steak. Capital Grille has never disappointed us before so we gave them a call. Dan, the General Manager and his staff, couldn't be more accommodating. They provided us with a great table on a busy Friday evening. Everything was just perfect.

Food was good at best...and extremely overpriced. Its also a knock-off of the real original Capital Grill in DC, without the licensing. Very rude and even abusive as well. Why spend $100 a head to be treated so badly.

We were on vacation and decided to spoil ourselves with an top of the line meal. We made reservations and were seated in a very private area. Our waitress, Sheryl, was AMAZING!! She was so helpful and very friendly. Filet was cooked to perfection. The highlight of the meal was the lobster mac and cheese! We finished our meal with... More

My husband and I went to Capital Grille with a gift card we received for $100. This was our forth visit to this restaurant and the only reason we went was due to the gift card. For the price, I much rather go to Ruth Chris since their service/quality of food is always consistent (very good). This visit to Capital... More

I will never eat here again. We had a reservation for our anniversary, about 30 days in advance. We were seated like normal, no issues. Not the best table but that can happen in a busy restaurant. 10 minutes later someone comes to the table to ask if anyone has come to our table, and the answer was no. They... More

We had table of 10, and our server handled everything quite well, especially with 4 kids, we ordered off the Easter Brunch menu and we were very happy with everything. May just be our new family Easter tradition.
