Was impressed with the upscale decor on our first visit, dark wood and elegant. Husband ordered the Aged Porterhouse Steak for $50. I ordered a grilled salmon and lobster Mac and Cheese. Salmon was delish but the lobster Mac and cheese lacked taste and was greasy. Very knowledgeable server with the wine offerings and we both ordered $20 glasses of... More

This is the place we almost always go for any special occasion, but you can never go wrong at the Capital Grill. You know you will get great service, excellent meals and the place is just comfortable. Have never felt rushed (turn over table). Guess the next time is Valentine day, oh well

The Capital Grill in Jax has a great atmosphere especially at the bar the martinis are great and the wine list is extensive.. The appetizers are wonderful but expensive as for dinner the steaks are great but I have had better and for less. The service was exceptional.

My wife and I enjoy stopping at this Capital Grille in the early evening after shopping to have a quick bite before heading home, about an hour south. We typically order from the appetizer listing on the main menu or the bar menu. This past visit I had the lollipop lamb chops that were outstanding. My wife had the crab/lobster... More

I've heard some pleasant reviews of CG here in Jacksonville. So my husband and I decided to give it a try. The service was pleasant and the staff attentive. We started off with the lobster bisque and the crab cakes with lobster. The bisque was delicious with chunks of lobster that was pretty tough to chew. The crab cakes with... More

Our third experience and it never loses it's charm and class. We asked for our favorite waiter, Adam and he never ceases to amaze us with his charm and recommendations. The spinach salad was topped with just the right amount of bacon egg and red onion. The ribeye was done to perfection and enough to share for two. The potatoes... More

Let me first say that I usually shy away from giving negative reviews- it's just not my style so I will rate Capital grille as average - at best. Our party of three was promptly seated and our server was charming and attentive if not overly so. My wife ordered the Mozzarella, Tomato, and basil salad to start. The mozzarella... More

We've paid more for a meal of great food. But we've also had better food for less money. To be objective, service is top notch, except that this particular restaurant is noisy enough that it makes for some difficulty in clearly hearing the servers comments - we've eaten at most of the CG's in FL and find this one clearly...
