  • "Incredible meal. Everything was delicious starting with the variety of breads delivered to the table. Lobster bisque is loaded with claw meat. The steaks we ordered were tender cooked to perfection and the cream spinach was great. Our server was incredible- menu knowledge and ability to compare dishes and beverages unparalleled. Not to even mention the special treatment for the birthday girl."

  • "I took an out of town friend here who I hadn't seen in five years. Sunday evening wasn't too crowded and the food was excellent. The chef greeted us as well, and our server Peter was most gracious. I'd recommend it and return !!"

  • "I can honesty say I have never had a resteraunt treat me any better for a special occasion than this meal. I put in special instructions that this was an anniversary dinner. We we got to our table, it had been decorated for us. They brought yellow roses to my wife in a vase we could take home. The manager brought us out a special soup for an appetizer. And dessert was on the house as well. Even a picture was taken of us and printed in a keepsake card. I was amazed that they took so much time to care for us on the occasion. Service was simply fantastic. Food was good, but truly the experience with staff made this a perfect night."

  • "Our first visit 2 yrs ago, I noted that it was our anniversary when I made the reservation. upon arrival, the hostess told us happy anniversary, our waiter greeted us with Happy Anniversary and gave us a glass of champagne. At then end of our dinner, he brought us a dessert and took a photo of us and put it inside of a card which said Happy Anniversary. My husband still has that photo on his desk Quite impressive! We couldn't wait to return to Capital Grill. But on this visit there wasn't 1 acknowledgement of our Anniversary. I listed it when making the reservation and told the restaurant when I called and confirmed. What a disappointment! On a positive note, the food, service and ambience was wonderful!!"

  • "Great food, great service, friendly, accommodating hosts and hostesses, wonderful atmosphere, TCG never fails. (Occasionally, large parties with loud guests will wreak havoc on the wonderful ambiance of this restaurant, if seated close to you. Doesn't happen often, but it does happen.)"

  • "My suggestion would be to label the to go boxes with the contents. They are taped up tight and it would be nice to know what is in it without having to rip up the tape and open it. Thanks."

  • "The service was friendly and professional. We had the wedge salad - absolutely fresh and great blue cheese dressing, the filet (prepared oerfectly), lobster mac cheese side (terrific) and the flour,ess chocolate cake for dessert. As always a great experience with such a welcoming and friendly environment."

  • "My wife and I come to Capital Grill for special occasions or just to get out and about. The restaurant was quiet because of Taste of Charlotte, which didn't keep us away. The staff is always friendly and Paul at the bar is a staple! Don't change CG!"

  • "Food was wonderful, I have never been disappointed with food or service at Capital Grille. The only disappointment was that we were seated in a traffic area. Door to outside behind me, drink service area beside us and bar behind us. We were in a traffic path and my daughter was having to move her chair quite often. "

  • "My husband took a group of his top-performing sales reps here for a special incentive. Superb food and service. He said it was the best steak he ever had. But, of course, it is VERY expensive."
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "Capital Grille continues to be the quintessential steal restaurant in the country. From the prime beef to the attentive but not over-bearing service, this remains the place to go when you don't care about price but want the best steak you can get."

  • "The bartender Alex is a true professional. She knows the menu, the wine list and how to accommodate special requests. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Made reservation for an anniversary celebration. They were very accommodating and had prepared a table for us. Food was good. The steaks were both cooked perfectly (we ordered them Medium Plus). Sometimes when we do this in other restaurants, they just give a thinner cut of meat; not so here. My wife ordered the filet which was thick and just pink. Asparagus was good but thought it was a bit overcooked. Wine was good though expensive. Cheesecake was perfect. They popped for two complimentary sprits of champagne. Nice touch. Very good evening."

    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "The Mother's Day brunch was delicious! The offerings on the prix fixe menu were tempting, but they didn't offer the lobster mac and cheese as a side option, so we ordered from the dinner menu. The staff was as attentive and friendly as you would expect at a place in this price range."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "My husband and I dined with friends at The Capital Grille. It was fabulous! Our waiter, Mark, was attentive without hovering. I wanted to try everything on the menu, and settled on the sea bass which was terrific. My husband had the stuffed lobster and enjoyed it very much. Our friends split the steak au poivre and added a lobster tail, and we all had the lobster mac & cheese. Everything was prepared to perfection. We're planning to go back with friends who are visiting from Charleston."

  • "My girlfriend and I celebrated our Anniversary at the capital grille and we were blown away by the ambiance and the quality of the food. The menu is a bit pricy, but after you take the firs bite into your entree you'll know its worth the cost. "
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "Our experience at the Capitol Grill did not reflect what one expects from a high-end, expensive establishment. While the beef entrees were nicely prepared and very tasty, our aspargus arrived cold. Since our server did not check back soon, we had no opportunity to change out. The failure to check back also did not allow me to obtain the bernaise sauce I had ordered but which was not brought with the entrees. The server did remove the asparagus and provide two desserts for us to share. The other sides were excellent, especially the lobster mac and cheese. "
    Dined on 5/1/2014
  • "First time here. Great restaurant, service, atmosphere all combine to make a great dining experience. The portions are generous except everything as ala carte so you have to order all your sides separately but the sizes are enough to share with 2 or 3 people. We had the salmon, steak, chicken and everyone was very happy with their meal. It's right across from the Belk and the have valet parking right in front. They also will add a lobster tail for only $10.00 which is a great deal. For 6 of us the bill came to about $425.00. The only drinks we ordered were a beer and a glass of wine and we passed on dessert so make sure you bring enough money! I will go back for another special occasion."

  • "My date and I enjoyed a really nice evening almost entirely because of our server. She was friendly, fun and just made everything seem so easy and nice. The steaks and drinks were great too. If you are in Uptown Charlotte, I would definitely recommend The Capital Grille!"

  • "We came here on recommendation for my wife's birthday. We were seated in a booth that shared with another table which was not ideal and I would recommend asking for a booth when you setup the reservation. We had the Pan fried calamari ( great ) and Parmesan Truffle fries ( good ) to start with. For the main dish my wife had the filet minon and I had the porterhouse steak... Both of which were juicy but my wife's steak was not cooked the way she asked and neither steaks had much of any flavor. We had to ask for some steak sauce to add flavor which was very disappointing considering the price. We've had better steaks at both Ruth's Chris and Firebird restaurants. It was nice of them to give us a small free desert for my wife's birthday."

  • "Capital Grill is a must! My girlfriend and I had a great time. Special place and a great staff. We had a few accommodation requests and they all were satisfied. Food was outstanding. You can not put a price on making a great memory with a close friend. We both look forward to returning. "

  • "We took our 10-year-old to The Capital Grille for his birthday and his first fine dining experience. The staff was attentive and encouraging. They decorated the table and suggested the most affordable way for our party of three to try as much of the menu as possible. A complimentary, personalized dessert topped off the night. Our son had a memorable birthday and we will be back to our favorite special occasion restaurant in Charlotte."
