Golf weekend dinner for 12

My appreciation goes to the management and staff for a great dinning event. 12 guys on a golf weekend had a fabulous dinner with multiple 'Big' bottles of wine from a great wine list. Food was spectacular as it always is at The Capital Grill!

First off, the reception was very stiff and without a smile. Granted, we arrived without a reservation for a late lunch. We were not offered the regular menu, but just the lunch menu with various chef options. The menu was ample and we ordered cream of asparagus soup, scallops with pea risotto and calamari. All were good when we finally... More

Ordered two glasses of "house" chard while waiting with 3 other couples. I was presented a tab for $27 when called to be seated. Really? $27? Shame on ME for having any trust in the bartender being reasonable. Waited 22 minutes before a server ever came to the table. After the birthday boy expressed his displeasure, the older woman server... More

Last Saturday evening I treated my sister and niece to dinner at the Capital Grille, a place we have greatly enjoyed in the past here in Jacksonville and in various other locations. In fact we had a terrific time here in the Jacksonville location this New Year's Eve, an evening when you can expect some slip ups but none occurred,... More

The food was good although the Steak Tartare was not as expected, I go for the traditional, this was not even close. The Oysters were excellent and very fresh. The Steaks were of course HUGE, but tender and tasty as well as the sides all shareable. Hefty Price Tag but I was a guest so enjoyed it.

I cannot express how pleased I am with Capital Grille. Tonight was our first wedding anniversary and Jason B was an exceptional waiter. He suggested wonderful wines to go with our salad and seared scallops, and had a wonderful surprise waiting for us after our meal. He knew the menu front to back and was very helpful. The price is...

Let me preface by saying we have eaten here before and it was good, this was Valentines Day and everyone knows it's going to be busy, right? Well the managment apparently didn't. Understaffed is putting it mildly. Arrived ten minutes early for a 6 o'clock reservation, seated 20 minutes later... After placing our order we had some nice soup and... More

It is great fine dining, I got the lamb and we had calamari before the meal. We had fantastic service and they even bought over a sample of deserts. To say I left very satisfied would be an understatement.
