  • "This is our favorite place. Once glitch this time -- brought my spouse the wrong steak -- it was fine and cooked correctly. The service person took our order without writing it down."

  • "We have been to Capital Grill several times and this last visit was the best yet! Antonio was our Server and he was fantastic. It was my daughter's 25th birthday and they did it right, Free champagne for the table and a very pleasant dessert for her. Everyone who stopped by the Table wished her a happy birthday, even the gentleman bussing the tables! The food was Delicious as always and we will definitely return again!"

  • "This restaurant is located in the heart of the city within walking distance to several artistic performance venues which is why I chose the location for my party. Additionally, Capital Grille serves a deliciously filling Lobster Bisque! I appreciate the fact that the wait staff is always aware that dinner customers are usually trying to make a show and use great care to get the order out in a timely fashion."

  • "I made reservations for a birthday lunch for a co-worker, and they did an over-the-moon job! They decorated the table, inquired as to the name of the birthday person, and not only did our waiter say happy birthday, but the hostess on the way out said happy birthday, and called the birthday person by their name. They made what could have felt like a fancy and over-the-top lunch to be fun and casual, but with all the formalities you expect of capital grille at night. The ability of the staff to adjust to our light hearted and laughing table was perfect."

  • "Dining 1st night was such a nice experience that returned the next evening. Filet Oscar first night was tender with a nice portion of lump crabmeat on top. Calamari appetizer and Chopped Salad were great and others in party who had the Steak Tartare enjoyed a very nicely presented portion. Salmon special with King Crab Legs 2nd night was also excellent and colleagues raved about the Tuna served rare. Service was excellent both nights and very accommodating since did not want to be rushed. Even though restaurant was crowded both evenings, noise level was very quiet which made for easy conversation."

  • "Walking into the bar area waiting for a friend I sat down at a corner stool & one of the bartenders immediately came over , introduced himself, Paul, and took my drink order.when my friend came in Paul greeted him, introduced himself & took his order. Just a real personal approach to the customer that is inviting to come by just for cocktails. We had dinner, service was great , food pit timely and first rate. Like my title, never been disappointed at the Capital Grill!"

  • "I took my wife here for dinner on her birthday. From the moment we were greeted at the door, everyone acknowledged and wished her a happy birthday. It was busy but our server made us feel like we were the only ones in the place. The food was fantastic. The price is definitely on the high end but a great place for those special occasions. To top it off, my wife was given a complimentary desser...A great experience!!!"

  • "we had a group of 13. food was top notch and service was excellent. don't go with that many people if you're on a time crunch...i believe we took about 2.5 hours. loved every minute."

  • "The Capital Grille was exactly the type of restaurant that we needed. Good food and quiet enough that we could have a good visit with friends without shouting. It is a favorite of ours for special occasions and times like Sunday when we want to be able to have a conversation with the people with whom we are dining."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Another, as expected, fine dining experience. This downtown Charlotte restaurant is consistently excellent. The food and service is first class. I've visited a number of Capital Grille locations and this one especially is worth coming back to again."

  • "Generally I am a fan all around of The Grille. The menu is a safe bet and the waite staff is great: noted by the black vest or gold jacket (you know who is who). Everyone is quite attentive even the assistant to the server and you gotta love that warm rye bread. And in over 5 years it's funny how the feature 'lobster bisque' has never made it on the menu. But I digress...being the service snob I am I find it odd that the manager passed by my table at least 3 times while my party was dining but never stopped once to ask how we were enjoying our meal. He did for other tables and I am use to this from CG...while I enjoyed my entrée"

  • "The food was overall not good. Very expensive steaks overcooked and crab that was cold.."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "We had our table relinquished after being 15 minutes late due traffic jam. We were seated in the lounge area which was noisy and perfect since we had our children dining with us. The food was wonderful, had to send steaks back just for additions, not improper cooking...server forgot to add the balsamic glaze, which is a must have with their steaks. The shrimp cocktail good, but rather skimpy, but the steak made up for it. The lobster mac and cheese is to die for!"

  • "Took friends there for dinner. We love Capital Grille. Always fantastic!"

  • "Service was a bit spotty. We had to ask for things like plates, sugar and silverware over and over again. Food was disappointing - the rice that came with the seared tuna was terrible; chicken was too garlicky and dry. The sides were boring - mashed potatoes were very thick and creamed spinach was tasteless. We expected more from this expensive restaurant"
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "Had to send steak back for more cooking -- clearly wasn't "medium". However, they recovered well and we really enjoyed the meal."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "I have eaten at Capital Grille in Providence several times and each time the experience was excellent. I expected nothing less from the restaurant in Charlotte and I was not disappointed. Several of my clients had not experienced Capital Grille before and needless to say they were very pleased."

  • "A big thank you to capital Grille and our server George for making it an amazing night! We had the best food and the best service we could have imagined, everything was cooked to perfection and the timing was perfect!"
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Food and service were perfect, but the gold star went to the hostess, who called to confirm and noted I had not been there before, then emailed me detailed parking instructions. Don't underestimate how helpful that is for someone that doesn't work downtown and is less than familiar."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "This restaurant is a prime location fit for any event or occasion, a+."

  • "I went to the Capital Grille for a business lunch. The services was great, being that we only had a hour and a half. Our food was brought out promptly. Very delicious, nice and hot. I had the Scallops and mushroom risotto and a salad. The scallops were cooked perfectly and the mushroom risotto was creamy. The others in my party had ordered hamburgers, which they like very much but envied my choice. I have been to Capital Grille before a show Uptown and was impressed. I was even more impressed with the lunch. I can't wait to go back and try some of the other items on the lunch menu. Superb."

  • "we were VERY disappointed this time around. we usually sit and have dinner at the bar; but this time we decided to go to the dining room. there were tables for 2 available throuhgout ......but sat us in a dark corner! why? no idea!!! but we did not appreciate that! Then I asked for a well done filet mignon and it came as medium. My husband had his ...and had to eat on his own and then wait for me to finish ! I would normally recommend Capital Grill, but this particular evening, I would NOT!"

  • "When I saw the prices my mind was blown. But when I tasted the food it's. definitely worth the price And I will be back again"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This was one of the few restaurants that was open on a snowy night, thus they were very busy and short staffed. We understood and were fine with the slower than usual service, but my entrée was extremely over cooked and this was something that should not have happened. We enjoy Capital Grille and will return, but I was not pleased with the quality of the food."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "The food and service are always perfect at the Capital Grille! From the minute you walk in, you're treated like royalty. And the small touches, like the chef preparing a small tasting morsel to the complimentary dessert for one's birthday, make this a very special place to dine."

  • "Our experience with Capital Grille was awesome. Our server was top notch. Food was amazing. The only downfall was the company around us. It was not a young scene, and the tables were a little too close together."
