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. We were celebrating our sons birthday and was placed near by the kitchen area and the air conditioning seemed to be down... More

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

This restaurant is on my top five list of best places to eat! We were celebrating a birthday and an anniversary., so our table was decorated and there were cards on the table signed by the staff. Our waiter brought a complementary champagne toast to the table to start us off. Two of our New York strips were perfectly cooked.... More

This was our third time at this restaurant. We went to celebrate my husbands birthday. Our first visit was outstanding, we were there to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Our meals were delicious and the service could not have been better. On our second visit my husband did not enjoy his steak and should have brought that to our servers... More
