For the cost, I would expect better quality of food. When I asked the waitress if the chicken was hormone free, she said most likely not. I still went ahead and ordered the chicken hoping for the best. Both the chicken and the rack of lamb that my husband ordered were far below expectation. Again, for what you’re paying, you’d expect the best quality of food. We will not be returning to this restaurant as we cannot compromise good quality of food over an overrated facade.

I always have a great time when at Capital Grille! My husband and I have brought many friends and family in, but we love coming for date night. We always sit with David Crosby because he is absolutely amazing!! He always makes us feel special and takes great care of us. We won’t visit without him! He always offers great recommendations and let’s us know about what’s new or different each time.

Husband had a steak & I the surf & turf. We both ordered steaks medium with a prompt question from server “ that’s a cool pink. Is that ok?” We both confirmed yes. Husband’s steak came out charred & well done mine had a faint pink in the very center & well done on the rest neither seasoned. Steaks were an excellent quality just overdone! Husband did not want to mention to server so he ate mine. Lobster tail was excellent!
Service was excellent

Very upscale. Excellent service and food was excellent. Expansive wine list. Although the restaurant itself is upscale, the dress code can be casual. Many diners eat here before going to a concert or a show at the Knights Theatre or Spectrum Arena. I would recommend it but don't expect to get out for very cheap. However, the food and service are worth the cost. This is definitely and example of getting what you paid for.

Perfectly cooked steak and shrimp. Potatoes were extra creamy. Really loved their version of cheesecake - lightly topped with torched creme brûlée, berries and sauce with great graham cracker crust. Excellent service with 2 people on our table if 2. Very lovely meal and would highly recommend for any occasion.

The food was OUTSTANDING, the service was less than desirable. The server was not attentive. The manager came around and I had to make a request through him. More than one time he had to be reminded of things. I would recommend the restaurant, I would not recommend the server. The restaurant can contact me and I will be happy to give you his name.

Waiter was great. They ran out of the special (tamahawk ribeye) by 7:30. I took a foreign client out for dinner, he was dissappointed at both tables beside us people dressed in ratty teeshirts and were loud. He thought there would have been at least a dress code requiring a collared shirt.

A little crowded for a week night but still felt private and intimate!! Food was perfect and service was outstanding. We have been coming to this location for a while and will definitely continue it’s one of the best places in Charlotte

Went to the Grill for dinner before seeing a performance at the Knight theater. Service was aware of our plans and the time Lamb chops wee very good as was the tenderloin win small lobster tails. The vegetables to share were more then we needed for the two of us. A very nice relaxing dinning experience

I have eaten at Capital Grill countless of times, but had never tried the sliced filet mignon with roasted wild mushrooms. WOW! By far the BEST meal I've ever consumed there or anywhere else! I definitely recommend it for anyone seeking a new taste in steak! Hats off to the chef!!!

Restaurant week with the Generous Pour is a summer must here in Charlotte. The food is second to none and so is the service. Dave was our waiter and you won’t find a nicer server in the city. He always takes very good care of us and Ashley was always there to help pick up the slack. The food is top quality and the wines this year were great as well. A+

This was our first visit to The Capital Grille, but definitely will not be our last. We dined on the veal tomahawk chop with gorgonzola butter and cherries. It was tender, juicy and outstanding. The in-house made mango sorbet was delicious and refreshing. For dessert, we shared the flourless chocolate cake and crème brulee, both of which were wonderful. Our server, Derek, was extremely professional while being pleasant with a great sense of humor. As I mentioned in the beginning, we will return soon and look forward to it.
