I really enjoyed myself on my birthday.
Everything was awesome. From the moment I walked through the door.
The food was delicious and it was cooked perfectly.
Customer was plus.
When I visit Charlotte again I will make plans to eat at the exquisite restaurant.

We had a wonderful time and the best meal we have had in a year! Covid kept us home and this is the first restaurant we went to after being vaccinated. It was perfect! The ambiance, food and service was the perfect way to celebrate the end of our lock-down!

Great job!

A once a year family dinner at Easter time and our son wanted us to go to Capital Grill. We had a reservation and were seated right away. We felt our server was nice but not very attentive.

The French onion soup was fantastic. I ordered the two filets and lobster tail. Both were extremely small portions for the $55 price tag. Maybe 6oz total. The server was very nice and attentive initially then seemed to disappear about mid meal.

Our evening was great. Our server was excellent and we will ask for her the next time we come. The food was very good. The steaks were ok but could have been better. The fish was outstanding. Our server was very attentive and made our experience awsome. We will be back many times.

Excellent meal, terrific service and an enjoyable evening for all of us!! When making reservations, I had mentioned it was for my husband’s birthday. When we arrived, the table was decorated with birthday confetti and jewels and also a birthday card for him!
We were very impressed with everything and Joe (who served us), was wonderful!! His suggestions and attention to detail made for a perfect dining experience!!
They even brought out a special birthday dessert for us!! Highly recommend!!

Food was incredible. But stand out part of the evening was the absolutely fantastic service! Our server was Amanda. And Armin stopped by the table to chat and answered questions about the restaurant. Will 100% return here again and again. Fabulous place for a special date, business event or simply to impress!

The weather was perfect for dining on the outdoor terrace, but conversation was often interrupted by the noise of motorcycles and muffler-free vehicles.
The ribeye, filet, and tenderloin were all delicious, and the service was first-class.

Wine is way over priced. Food prices a little high. Location not in safe area. We have been to many Capital Grills, but will not return to this one. Reason do not feel safe.

Amazing from start to finish! We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and enjoyed the extra touches like the private booth, card, and treats to make the evening special.

The food was delicious! We loved the basket with the different types of bread! The pumpernickel was a standout as well as the onion focaccia. One pet peeve I have at any fine dining restaurant is serving cold butter with bread. We were served butter at room temperature twice with the bread. The Capital Grille nails this and I was very pleased with this detail. Nothings worse than trying to spread cold hard butter on a piece of bread.

We started with the calamari and it was outstanding! The cherry peppers were a nice accompaniment. They brought out an amuse-bouche which was cucumber round with seared tuna and wasabi cream. Very tasty!

We ordered the Porcini-Rubbed Bone-In Ribeye with 15-Year Aged Balsamic and the Filet with Butter Poached Lobster Tails. Both were amazing but the winner for flavor was the porcini ribeye. A close second would be for the perfectly poached lobster tails! Steaks were cooked properly to medium rare temperature and both were tender. I ended up taking home half the filet because I was so full.

We had a few rounds of drinks as well - margaritas and in fashion. All perfectly done!

We wanted to order dessert but were so full from all the food. We were pleasantly surprised by a dessert sampler with happy anniversary on it with cocoa.

We dine at several steakhouses but the Capital Grille is a standout! We will be back again soon!

We have always enjoyed going to Capital Grille to celebrate events - this time our anniversary. We enjoyed it once again. Our server was extremely attentive. She brought us a nice appetizer and desert for our anniversary, which was much appreciated. I never eat dessert, but did this time and the gluten-free chocolate cake was delicious. The only issue was the shrimp cocktail for which the shrimp were rubbery and did not taste good. Both of us felt ill the next day. While they did not charge us for the shrimp cocktail, we expect higher quality from Capital Grille. We will return though.

Great experience and food was exceptional! From the bartender David to our waiter Derek the staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. It’s been a while since we have been able to visit due to Covid but took the night to celebrate an early retirement and it was so worth our wait.
