    Try the baked stuffed lobster - unbelievably sweet and delicious. The drawn butter wasn't even needed. I can not even think of anything to complain about with this experience. Our server, Bill, was knowledgeable and was available without being intrusive. The whole staff made us feel welcome and our wishes important.

    The food at Capitol Grill is always delicious but the price tag is not for the faint of heart. The Waygu burger and wine pairing special is a great deal @ $25. If you have a second glass of wine for $20, the bill quickly rises. Great food and service. Expensive.

    Went to Capital Grille on a Monday night because we were in the area. We made a reservation through OpenTable so we were seated immediately. After being brought water and s a basket of bread, our server arrived with the wine list on an iPad. It was a nice way to see the wine list and we could click on each wine to get more detail. The restaurant specializes in dry-aged steaks so that is what we ordered. I got the sirloin while my wife got the sliced filet. For a side we ordered the twice-baked potato. Everything was cooked exactly as we had ordered it. Very tasty. The steaks were cooked well. They are not heavily seasoned like some restaurants, so be ready for that if you dine here. Service was great. Give this place a try!

    Four of us had dinner there this week. The menu is classis steakhouse - aged beef, typical al la carte sides and appetizers. The steaks were tasty and fairly expensive. Not recommended for anyone on a budget.

    The service was excellent, everyone is very cordial and while the food was good, it is very overpriced. Tomato, mozzarella, basil salad with balsamic vinegar was good but nothing special. The steak (filet mignon for me, porterhouse for my date) was excellent, but the twice baked potato was just okay....again, nothing special. for what was charged, I would expect outstanding, not just okay. No appetizers, no dessert, no alcohol and the bill for two was $130.00.

    As a table of 7 at a business function, service started out great. Then, as the restaurant got busy, we were seemingly forgotten. By the time we ordered coffee and dessert, the coffee was cold before the desserts came. My steak was over cooked. Pretty disappointing.

    This was my and my husbands first visit to "The Capitol Grill" and we were not disappointed. We were greeted by a smiling hostess and when it was discovered that it would take a few minutes before our table would be ready we were offered glass of champagne to enjoy while we waited. Our Waitress was pleasant, attentative and professional. My husband was very pleased with his dry aged steak and I think the tuna I ordered was the best sushi grade tuna I've had. I ordered it rare and melted in my mouth. The spinach salad was also quite good as were the scalloped potatoes. We will certainly be returning to the Capitol Grill and will be recommending it to others.

    My wife and I went here on our first anniversary and we had a phenomenal time. The staff was very nice and had set up and decorated a table for us. During our dinner two managers stopped by, wished us a happy anniversary and asked if there was anything they could get for us. The food was amazing, the service was fantastic and the restaurant itself had a nice ambiance and was not noisy at all. It was a great experience and we will definitely be back!

    While the food was good, it was certainly overpriced. We loved the cold seafood appetizer which was enough to share for the 3 of us. But, we asked for horseradish which never arrived and we needed more cocktail sauce which was not noticed. It was fairly noisy in the area we were seated in (opposite the kitchen). I loved the fries and even took home the leftovers. The peppercorn sauce on my filet was creamy and I'm sure loaded with calories. We won't be back because of the prices and the fact that it is a 20 minute drive from our home.

    Went to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary with three other people. We were extremely disappointed in the service and treatment we received. We had just been there in early September for my birthday so we know what to expect. My husband had to go to the bar to give the bartender the order for a drink. Not what we expected. Will not return.

    What was always a great restaurant in St Johns Town Center now is even better. A new improved highly professional management team led by Dan Skweres kicked it up a notch. From the moment the four of us walked in we were greeted by various management and seated at our requested table. The large bone in filet delicious, Thick Alaskan Halibut, rarely found on menus was totally fabulous.

Service and food have always been excellent, very nice personal touches (card signed by staff, special handling due to special occasion, phone calls, etc.) Donna had the bone in Kona steak, I had the Chilean Sea Bass, also we had the smoked salmon appetizer, all excellent, one of our favorite dining destinations. Also, our service was wonderful, Ginny and the management team were very attentive. Thank you Capital Grille for another memorable experience!

    We had a wonderful time with the family here. Service was fast and friendly. Thanks Gwen! Food was exceptional and cooked to temperature. There were 4 of us and 2 sides were the perfect size! Great time! Would have liked all the food on my plate to have been boxed though and not just the main dish. Once I got home I realized I was missing a side I added to the plate. Overall we had a lovely time!
