Great service and very good food. The wine tasting special was great! About $27 for as many tastes on the flight menu as you wanted to try. There were about 10 wines to choose from so it was fun to try a lot of different things without having to pay $10 a glass. Overall, fairly pricey but they produce great... More

I ate here for the first time today with my boyfriend for lunch. We went in the late afternoon and there was no wait at all. We ordered calamari to start with and it was crispy, spicy, and flavorful. It was a pretty large portion, so it was more than enough for us to share. Next we had the blue... More

My wife made reservations at the Capital Grille for our 29th wedding anniversary. The staff had a table set up for us with a red rose, small heart cutouts over the table and a card signed by the staff wishing us a Happy Anniversary. The service was impeccable. Lindsey who waited on us was wonderful. She took a picture of... More

I have been to Capital Grille once or twice a year or so ago and thought it was "ok." I went again for the Generous Pour event and it was WONDERFUL. I had the filet and lobster, of course the lobster mac-n-cheese and they were delicious. You cant beat the generous pour deal for drinks and I was very happy... More

Our Newcomers group went to The Capital Grille for our July birthdays upon my request since I was one of the birthday girls. And I was so happy about my choice. I had the watermelon salad that was delicious, although the watermelon was cut way too small, more like confetti. Then I had the scallops and it was very good.... More

This is by far one of our favorite restaurants in Jacksonville. We usually try to seek out non-chain dining experiences, but this particular CG has won us over. This is definitely a STEAK house. While seafood options are on the menu, the Mitchell's Seafood restaurant next door can scratch that itch for most diners. The staff at CG-Jax is extremely... More

We have been to the Capital Grille several times but took my sister who had never been there before for a nice lunch. It was late - almost 2:30 so we sat at a table in the bar area. The server was very pleasant and gave us the intro to the menu and their "Plates" specials. We all ordered drinks... More

Made a last minute reservation as we had been wanting to try this place and had the opportunity. Our server asked if we had every been there before, and we said no. He took the time to explain how the restaurant and menu worked and all the options we could chose from, so many great choices! We went early on... More

From the moment we entered, we were greeted and treated like family. We were really made to feel that our presence was appreciated. The wait staff was attentative yet not intrusive. Extremely knowledgable. Needless to say the food was absolutely awesome! Living with a trained chef make it difficult for me to dine in restaurants that meet my expectations. Capital... More
