Our server Jennifer was absolutely wonderful! It was my wifes birthday and we could not find a sitter so we had to bring our son. I was worried that there would be an issue with children but when we arrived the hostess asked if my son would like to watch a movie? They provided a portable DVD player and the movie BOLT with headphones. I could not belive it! the meal was wonderful and the service was wonderful! I can not wait to back! Sorry Mortons:(

My husband and I went for his birthday. I was quite suprised when I opened the menu and saw over 300 wines. As I looked at the list I was even more suprised to find several wines for $30.00. We had a 5 course Dinner for $49.00 each. We've been to Ruth's Chris before for thier specials but they did not come close to the dinner we had at Capital Grille. We considered it one of the greatest expereinces dining out and for $98 for dinner for 2 and $30 for wine we can go back to restaurant next week! I think the promotion is over in April but I'm not sure.

Pros: Wines for $30 that are wonderful

We had the best service at this restauarant. Laine was great and though the restaurant was full we felt like we were the only table in the establishment. My husband can't wait to go back for his birthday next month.

We went to the Capital Grill for a celebration (BD); It was very impressive when you walk in, the decor is wonderful, very nice!!!, the service at the table was ok.... Until the bottle of Red wine was knocked into my lap. They helped to clean it up, and apoligized for the disruption. The food was good, but I have had better. Overall it wasn't a great first outing there. I may consider them later, but not anytime soon. FYI, we paid the full price for the meal, $600.

My wife and i went for our 25th anniversary. I let the girl on the phone know. They had Roses on the table, the server brought out a champange toast, and took our picture and framed it, there was a card signed by the staff, and we hadn't even looked at the menu yet. The food was great! The service was great! My wife said this was the most romantic anniversary yet.... Thank you Capital Grille!

I went with a party of 8 Friday night and all though the place was quite busy we were sat about 15min after our resevation time. The bartenders were most entertaining to fill the void while we waited. One of the bartenders gave us a taster of a drink she called a stoli boli. We were so happy with the flavor of the martini we all ordered around of stoli boli's. After we were seated the server did a top knotch job of going over the menu. She also recomended the chef special. It was a Filet Mignon topped with Foe Gras in a Port truffle wine sauce. It was the greatest! I can't wait to go back to try something new!

My wife and I went for dinner tonight. We called for a 8:30 reservation and the hostess they only had 9:30 and after. I took the reservation on the time they had available. About 3 hours later I got a call from the General Manager who let me know that the 8:30 reservation I initialy requested was available. I of course took it, but even more important who does that? What a magical night it was! I let the General Manager know it was a special night for my wife and I celebrating an early mothers day. He had a carnation on the table for my wife along with a card signed by the staff. The whole evening was just memoralbe, the food, the service, the hospitality were all first class! I will be back as often as possible.\r

We went to the Capital Grille for my husband's birthday. There were six in our party. We had reservations so we were seated immediately. The waitress was sweet and very knowledgable about the menu. We ordered several different types of the encrusted steaks and one fish dish. Everyone enjoyed their steak and each was cooked to perfection. We shared a lobster appetizer. We all had a great time and it was the best steak I've ever eaten. The side dishes were awesome. Nice place.

Upon my arrival at the Capital Grille I was very pleased with the ambiance and decor. The hostess was very helpful in seeing me to the bar. Which was relatively small for such a fine establishment. The bartrnders were very professional, curteous and warm. Made a great martini (dirty). My guest and I sat at one of the tables behind the wood/glass wall an were promptly greeted by our server. The server was very professional and new the items by heart and ran us through the items and the Capital Grille ""we can do anything drill."" Due to her pitch we split a very nice prosciutto mozzeralla dish had our salads and ordered the wine (1/2 btl unduly expensive). Up until this point in time every thing was top notch, including the dinner rolls. For our main courses we ordered the Porcini rubbed Del monico and a Kona encrusted sirloin, paired with Augratin potatoes and creamed spinach. For a restaurant that prides itself on steaks being top notch and the focus of its menu, perfection was not attained. The sirloin was under cooked, but even if it were down correctly, was probably one of the worst cuts of meat I have tasted in a long time. The DelMonico, which was cook to the correct temp, was also encumbered by numerous tendons and sinus that went above and beyond ""well"" marbled. The creamed spinach was overly salted and unedible. The potatoes were practically raw. Cheesecake was outstanding as well as the after dinner drinks. It will be quite sometime before I return. I have discovered another steakhouse that prides itself on its steaks and has probably the best wine list in Jacksonville.

Pros: Bartenders and staff

Cons: Steaks, value

Poor service and sub par food. Cookie cutter standards with robotic servers. Funny how CG is owned by Rare who owns Longhorn. Longhorn Servers have fun and have personalities not robotic like CG, Take LH servers any day.

Jacksonville's Capital Grill has a long way to go to keep up the reputation of the chain. I just recently dined at the Capital Grill in Orlando and the customer service and the food quality was far superior than that of Jacksonville. My daughter and I had lunch at the Capital Grill at Towne Center last week. The dry aged steaks were heavily charred and overwhelmed the taste of the steaks. The vegetables (green beans) were also charred tasting. My daughter and I struggled in and out the doors with a baby stroller very unlike Orlando's CG where the customer service is what you would expect for a high end restaurant. The management was rather snobbish instead of the customer service I would expect when paying the high prices of this chain. I must say that our waitress was very accommodating and did everything we expected and more. Overall, food quality wasn't as good as The Outback and the management needs to beef up customer service.
