Great

The menu has great offerings and the flavor of the meat here always speaks for itself. But really it is too pricey there are places that are a lot less with better flavor. But a great place for occasions

Dined outside on the patio. Waitress was very attentive but not overbearing. Wagu burgers were over the top. Cooked to perfection. Try these when they are available.

We went out as a group of 5 colleagues one saturday night. Service and food was top notch and the wait staff, as usual, brought their A game. Lamb chops and tuna were items getting raves at the table. Probably not a place for kids under 12 or so, fyi.

My husband and I celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary and it was made even more special at this restaurant. They went out of their way to make the evening sparkle. The food was excellent and the service was exceptional. We cannot wait to get back to Jacksonville to visit The Capital Grille again. I cannot thank them enough for making... More

Food here is excellent, but in my opinion, very overpriced. Service friendly but very slow -- easily can have a 3 or 4 hour dinner. That is just how they operate. Recommend Valet Parking since available free parking quite a walk. Manager had an attitude and not very accommodating or warm--like he was doing us a favor by allowing us... More

I've been to this location multiple times and am always pleased. It's located in the town center, so there is plenty of shopping and things to do in walking distance. The food is always perfectly cooked, minus one occasion where my steak was overcooked. After politely complaining, I received a new steak, as well as a free dessert and gift... More

This is the place for romantic dinner with fine dining experience. Calm and serene atmosphere. Steaks are their specialty. Even if you pay a lot, you will get the best service and the best food. This is the place to visit at least once for a special occasion

This was the second time our family dined at the Capital Grill at the St Johns Town Center. The food here is far better that Ruth Chris Steak House and the Service has been top notch each time.

I was taken here for a special occasion as a surprise, a pleasant one at that! Restaurant is very upmarket & upscale. Service was superb with the wait staff being very knowledgeable & attentive. I had the Caprese Salad & my husband the regular salad to begin with. We both ordered the Delmonico Steak for our entree at the recommendation... More
