Diner Reviews
  • "This is one of the VERY few chain restaurants I will go to--and we are never disappointed! We had the special bone in filet (with added on lobster tails) and the special wine pairing/tasting and it was perfect. We always enjoy what we order, get great service (Josh at the bar) and have a great time--which is especially important when "investment dining"!! I love this place because it is consistently excellent."

  • "This was our second visit to Capital Grille in the last 10 days. Glad we gave it a second change. Service was outstanding (as it should be) and the food was very good. Capital Grille is back on our list of favorites. We all got a glass of champagne as a special treat since it was our daughter's birthday. She also got a very tasty complimentary dessert. As I said, glad we gave it a second chance. The Grille used to be one of our favorites but we had stopped going due to poor service on busy nights. Unacceptable in restaurants of this category"

  • "Once again The Capital Grille is offering their Generous Pour. A great way to enjoy a variety of wines at a reasonable cost. Our server was very knowledgable offering good insight to the selection. The addition of the tenderloin to the lunch plates menu is very tasty. For a real treat don't miss the Flourless Chocolate Cake, not too sweet and oh so chocolatey!"

  • "Took my wife there for a birthday luncheon. As usual, food, service and atmosphere were very nice. Menu was a bit confusing as to what was included in the special plates. Of course, cost was $$$$ but was worth the cost for the elegant service."

  • "We took my mother for her birthday and the staff was fabulous. She was given a card, the table was decorated, the manager even came by to say happy birthday. The dessert plate they gave her impressed her the most when it had happy birthday written in chaocolate. Dale, our waiter, was awesome and so was Matthew, the manager. We will definately go back."

  • "Celebrating the end of the school year for the kids and decided to take them to the Capital Grille for lunch. Great food and service was expected and delivered. Started with the calamari. Perfect. Really liked their presentation and mix with peppers. I had a cup of the lobster bisque. It was good but I've had better. But it had a lot of lobster in it. We all tried different meals. My wife had the lobster salad. My one daughter has the lobster roll. Both really liked their dishes. My other daughter and son had petite filet mignon - perfect. I had the ribeye steak sandwich which was very good. One thing I would change would be to use real horseradish instead of the cream variety. No dessert. We all walked out full. :)"

  • "It's rather incredible what a difference a week makes. This last time I was there, the service and everything else was what one would EXPECT from Capital Grille. Special thanks to the manager and wait staff and even the hostess for all they did to make this a great experience and restore my trust in your restaurant. The steak was cooked great, mushrooms yummy, oysters were really great and appropriately sized, and salad was delicious too!"

  • "Came out with my girlfriend for a celebratory date night. Everything was perfect, from the service the valet provided to the epic level of care our waiter gave us. My filet could not have been any better, even beating out steaks I've had the pleasure of enjoying at some of New York's top steakhouses. Despite the restaurant's young age, you get the feel of walking in to an old school steakhouse one might find in New York, Chicago, or Boston."

  • "The food as usual, we have been there often, was outstanding as usual. What set this night apart was the service. Could not have been better and more attentive than ever before."

  • "I have dined at The Capital Grille in Jacksonville on 3 separate occasions, each being more memorable than the last. The first time my fiancee and I had the pleasure of dining there, we were celebrating our recent engagement. Our server Mark was beyond phenomenal. He was extremely knowledgeable, informative, & made some great suggestions including his personal favorite,, the porcini rubbed delmonico. If you love a marbled ribeye, this bone-in treat should not be passed up. My fiancee and I both love their lobster mac & cheese. We have to order two, even though one is large enough to share. We finished with the bruleed cheesecake w/ fresh berries. Yumm!! He always makes sure we are satisfied even if he isn't our server! "

  • "I have been to the Capital Grille three times. My wife and I had dinner there for her birthday a couple years ago. Despite having reservations, they sat us in the bar. It was crowded, uncomfortable, and loud. The waitress brought and opened the wrong bottle of wine. My wife's medium rare steak came out well done. I ate at Capital Grille for lunch about a year ago. Lunch was really quite good, and the price was reasonable. The last time I ate there was this past Mother's Day. Despite having reservations, we had to wait to be seated. The restaurant was too crowded. Service was very slow. The steaks were not cooked properly. I wish we had eaten somewhere else. The brunch was not worth $200 for three meals and drinks. "

  • "Capital Grille exceeded my expectations. Upon walking in to the establishment we were greeted cheerfully and seated very quickly, which is expected with reservations. Our server, Shawn, was very kind and professional. She was knowledgeable of the menu and what the actual food was like that was being served so she was able to stop me from ordering something I would not have enjoyed. The meal I ended up ordering was cooked to perfection and delicious. Although it was a little crowded the ambience was very nice and cozy with the lighting being just right. The best compliment I can give is that I would patron here again and recommend Capital Grille to friends and family."

  • "This place is all you'd expect it to be in service, atmosphere and an impressive wine list. However, for over $40, I would expect a PERFECT steak, which I didn't get. All of the food we ordered wasn't of the caliber of the price we paid. I'd rather celebrate a birthday at one of the many other excellent restaurants in Jacksonville. "

  • "The Capital Grille is not the typical steakhouse. Yes it is typical when it comes to quality steaks and ala carte sides. However, the diversity in the menu makes it easy to bring non-steak lovers in as well. The service is fantastic especially since service is hard to come by in Jacksonville. I did order the bone in ribeye and it was flavorful and tender. My wife ordered the lobster and if you request to take out of shell it will come completely out of the shell. Overall experience was excellent! "

The food was great, taste and well portions affordable. The entire restaurant was clean and inviting. I usually do not use public restrooms, but Magginao's restroom met my standards."
