  • "This was our first visit to Capital Grill & we thoroughly enjoyed it."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "My boyfriend and I went here for Restaurant Week. We couldn't get over how great everything tasted. I ordered my Filet Mignon rare, he ordered his medium rare. You can't go wrong. The mashed potatoes are also amazing!"

    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "I'd give the wait service 6 stars if I could. The food was awesome as well. My only complaint would be my filet was slightly over cooked, but the taste more than made up for it. It wasn't quiet, but that could have been due to their extensive wine list. We will definitely visit again."

  • "So often we go out to "grab a bite to eat" and we forget the pleasure of Dining. The Capital Grille in uptown Charlotte brings Dining back as a special occasion. The service was excellent, food amazing and setting a mix between romantic and personal privacy. We will be back again."

  • "A wonderful birthday dinner! The lobster Mac n' cheese is a must try!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Ate from restaurant week menu - mixed greens salad is fresh and has delicious vinaigrette. Husband paid extra for his favorite wedge salad with blue cheese dressing and crumbles. Filet mignons were perfectly cooked to medium rare and served with family style sides of mashed potatoes and green beans. Flourless espresso chocolate cake was rich and dense. Cheesecake was a bit dry, I thought, compared to previous visits but still tasty. Overall you cannot get better food, service, or atmosphere for the price of restaurant week. I enjoy eating here often but $30 is a tremendous deal you have to take advantage of."

  • "The meal was very good, service was not what I would have expected from the Capitol Grill. Have been to the Baltimore and Naples location and it was a much more attentive staff during the dining experience. We had to keep asking for drinks to be refilled from water to adult beverages."

The filet was remarkable, wine was delicious (thanks to our server for making a great recommendation) and dessert (berries with cream) was "to die for". Capital Grille has proven itself to be worth every penny. If you want to feel special and have a remarkable dining experience, take the time to go to Capital Grille. You won't regret it!"

  • "The noose level was a bit more than I would have liked but conversations were possible. The service was very good and the wine list is amazing. The food was incredible! It was the best steak I have ever had, perfectly aged, seasoned beautifully and cooked exactly as ordered. I am sure this was no mean feat as busy as it was."

  • "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 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."

  • "Told the staff that it was my first time dining at Capitol grille. Ordered the sliced Filet with lobster mac and cheese. It was Father's day and place was not very busy. When food arrived it was cold especially the steak and when waiter finally came back around i made it known to him when i was asked about my food.He offered to reheat it but i chose no because i was hungry and it was a Filet the meal should have been right the first time especially given the price Next day i phoned and spoke to a manager and told him everything and he assured me he wopuld take care of my Experience but have not heard anything from anybody."

  • "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!!"
