Diner Reviews
  • "Had a nice romantic dinner at the CG. Food was excellent and although crowded, service shined. Have never had a bad experience there!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "I am disappointed with the food served during the "Queens Feast" in Charlotte. It seems they downgraded to fit the prices for this event! Isn't the menu and dinner served suppose to reflect the best of what a restaurant can do!. The shrimp on the upgraded menu tasted like brine, must have soaked all day in salt water. The desert was a small cookie sized cheesecake, although tasty it was to small. The steak was overcooked, but the service was fabulous. My ratings were based on the food not the service."

  • "My husband and I went here to celebrate my birthday, what a great choice. The service was amazing and the food was very good. Their attention to detail for birthdays and service in general is excellent. the creme brulee was amazing, the filet was very good and the mashed potatoes, wow yummy! When you're done enjoying an excellent meal you can walk down the street to the epicenter and partake in a vast array of entertainment available."

  • "Our evening at The Capital Grille was everything we thought it would be, and more. The food and service were superb!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • " The food was good, but the reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because it seemed basic steak, salad, veggie. There was nothing so outstanding that I would just absolutely have to go back. The service was almost too much. Maybe because it was restaurant week. It seems they were getting people in and out too quickly. Although our server was very nice it made me uncomfortable that he kept coming over behind me to do something. We have dined at other very nice restaurants like Ruth Chris and Charleston Grille and I really enjoyed those and didn't feel over attended. I just felt rushed and uncomfortable. Also there was not much of a choice for sides. We were given green beans and mashed potatoes. It was not outstanding in taste."

  • "I had the 8 oz filet - cooked to perfection, would recommend to anyone looking for a great steak!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Our food was great! Best steak I've ever had (had the filet). The server however seemed less than pleased when we opted for the restaurant week menu and was kind of short with us after that. But the food was delicious and we had a great dinner."

  • "Using Open Table allowed me to see what choices were available with a larger party & I then added Queens Feast as an opportunity to get together for an evening out, somewhere special that we normally wouldn't go for girls night out. Two of the five had never been to Capital Grill and I knew they were in for a treat! As usual, the food was exceptional, service above par, drinks delish and the laughter nonstop. I'm always amazed to see the looks on peoples faces when they take that first bite of steak and then the lobster mac and cheese...it's pure awe and delight. My late father always insisted we go to "the grill" when he was in town. His reasoning was, "They pour a great drink and fire up a damn good steak", he was a very wise man!"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "So enjoyable! The atmosphere and ambiance set the mood for a divine meal! And the filet was superb..best I ever had! Our waiter was very accomodating & professional. Can't wait to dine again :)"

  • "This was my 1st time at Capital Grille, and I can't wait to go back. It is now my favorite restaurant in Charlotte! I'd like to, especially, give a shout out to the wait staff -- POINT ON! My server, John Yanek, was fully educated about the menu and wines, and he created a relaxed, high-end dining experience. I didn't have to ask for anything, as he was proficient with service. The bar was bustling, and it was a Tuesday night. I plan to go to just the bar, also."

  • "Everything was perfection from the moment we arrived. The most delicious cheesecake I have ever tasted inside of the United States"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Highly recommend The Capital Grille for that special lunch experience. While a tad expensive over the alternatives, the menu gives you a broad selection beyond just steak and fries. I had lobster salad - a perfect summer salad with plenty of lobster and fresh salad ingredients. Service was professional and outstanding."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "I went for Restaurant Week and it was incredible. Steak was cooked to perfection! The clam chowder was amazing, and the cheesecake was perfect. The service was great, although seemed a tad rushed, but that's expected during Restaurant Week. Will definitely go back next year."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Was a friend's choice for Queen's Feast and I certainly felt like a queen! From the moment we stepped in the restaurant, every staff person was exceedingly friendly and welcoming. Our wait staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable of the menu. The food was prepared perfectly and was delicious! A definite special occasion establishment but also a don't miss! Five star all the way!"

    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."

  • "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."
