This restaurant was once my husbands favorite That is why when friends and family wanted to know what to give him for his 75th birthday I recommended gift cards from Capital Grille. On our last visit he ordered the porterhouse cooked medium. It came over cooked. They apologized and said they would cook him another. After waiting twenty minutes the... More

It is truly regrettable hearing about the difficulty we had getting your husband's steak cooked perfectly. You were celebrating his birthday and would have envisioned everything being perfect so you could have enjoyed your meals together. It is equally concerning you were inadvertently charged for dessert; as you mentioned, this is usually provided with our compliments dessert. We apologize you... More

Lovely restaurant located in a mall complex here in Jacksonville Fl. The staff is friendly and courteous. Our server for this evening was Tabitha. Very pleasant and handled our party of five with aplomb having recently relocated here from Ohio. The 3 steaks entrees along with the Sea scallops and Chilean Sea bass were cooked to perfection and my first... More

It's definitely not an everyday restaurant! It's an upset scale environment, people are dressed up and not very enjoyable with little kids although they do have some kids choices. The menu is somehow limited but has a choice for every taste! The prices are relatively high especially the entry courses and you have to buy the sides separately! It's an... More

A truly wonderful fine dining experience. Top notch food, service atmosphere and drinks. The bone in filet mignon was fabulous, the sides were great and the wine list terrific. Service was exceptional and decor was perfect. What more can you ask? Look forward to many return visits.

We received a gift card to Capital Grille so this was our first time here. We sat outside in the patio as it was a nice evening. Our Server was nice and attentive at first, but then he disappeared for long stretches at a time. That would be our only complaint. The food was magnificent from the bone-in rib steak... More

A wonderful experience. Decor and service were very elegant. Steak was perfectly prepared. The lobster mac and cheese was perfection. I think I could have had that as a meal. The wait staff was very attentive, and we were checked on by the general manager - a very important and telling touch. Can't wait to go to the one closer... More

Great Wagyu cheeseburger at the bar menu. With fried egg and havarti or wild mushrooms. It's awesome. Try the Duckhorn Cab. And lunch salmon glazed is huge! Can't beat the truffle fries. Best lunch in town!!
