The Capital Grille - Charlotte
Book your next event with us
Uncharacteristic of MANY visits to Capital Grille, this time my meal was not great. I went for the surf and turf special and the filet and Australian lobster were dry.
However I WILL go back because I’ve had countless amazing meals in the past - just won’t order a special.
My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and we were very pleased with the service and the food. Thank you for making our day so special!
Great experience as always! Chris made us feel very welcome.
Best downtown spot for lunch
Overall the food was excellent! Since we are spending some money on the experience, we would appreciate the tables to reflect as such. The table that we sat in for four was not as spacious as we would like with 4 orders of steaks and sides. Service was great!
Great meal, food was wonderful and the staff was great as always.
Great food and service!
It was great!
Amazing service and food; Capital Grille helped to make our anniversary very special.
Still the standard in Charlotte for best food and service.
I love this place! Most importantly I love the people that create such an effective team when providing a wonderful evening experience with food as its centerpiece.
I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and everything was excellent. The atmosphere, the food was freaking amazing, and the waiter, David, was extremely accommodating and went above and beyond to make the night special and memorable for my girlfriend. I had flowers sent to the restaurant in advance to be presented to her at dinner as a surprise. It was no problem for the waiter to accommodate me in presenting the flowers to the table and surprising her. He even gave her a complimentary dessert for her birthday. It was a wonderful experience and we will most definitely be returning. Thanks a lot for making the night special for the both of us.
There are multiple reasons this is one of my favorite restaurants. It begins with the staff/team members. All extraordinarily welcoming, consistent, and unconditionally professional. The food is always fantastic allowing for really wonderful culinary experience.
Joe was our waiter. He was awesome. Made excellent recommendations, didn't rush us, and make sure we had a great evening! Thanks to the entire staff for taking us on short notice and making a special night of it for my newly engaged son and his fiancé!!
Steak is a must.
This is my 2nd business trip to Charlotte and because I had such a great dining experience at this particular Capital Grill on my last trip, I made sure I went back and it did not disappoint. My waitress, Danielle, was super friendly and gave great suggestions for menu items. My steak was perfect, the lobster bisque was out of this world with huge chunks of lobster. Sam’s mashed potatoes never fails to be delicious, but their Brussels sprouts with bacon was incredible! The staff is super friendly and the manager came by to chat with me a bit during my meal which was really nice. Thank you for an incredible dinner experience...again!
It was my Mom’s birthday and the Manager brought out dessert and champagne. It was an awesome experience. The service, food and atmosphere was great.
2nd time only confirmed what the 1st visit told me. Out of many Capital stores we have visited, this is the most poorly run. Cold steaks, watery potatoes, poor service and inept management.
Never again Capital Charlotte.
The Capital Grille - Charlotte is my Cheers. My wife and I had date night and sat outside. The excellent weather complimented the excellent food and service. If you haven't tried the Wagyu burgers, head over to TCG before they are gone in mid November!
Excellent restaurant. Food and service are always excellent. On this occasion, we sat outside because of the beautiful weather. However, there was a street performer a block away with some sort of amplification. His singing was loud but not good and this negatively impacted our otherwise pleasant evening.
Took my wife out for our anniversary and it was amazing. They went above and beyond... the card, little hearts on the table and flowers were unexpected but the perfect touch.
It was not one of our best times here. We have been there over (20) times and I don't know if it was because it was Sunday, however our waiter seemed unhappy and unfriendly which is not what we have had in the past.
Anyway.....we will be back, just not as soon as we have in the past and may try some other steak houses in uptown.
I’m Celiac and the staff was very educated and accommodating!! Food was amazing! I will definitely be back!
Capital Grille never disappoints. The calamari is the best around.
Wonderful night at the Capital Grille. We were there as a family of six. Great service and food.
Only the Capital Grille could take something as ordinary as a "hamburger" and turn it into something elegant! Wagyu and Wine is a taste treat worth repeating over and over again, which is exactly what we plan to do!
We always have dinner here before a show at Belk theater across the street. They never disappoint. The food is always delicious and the service is always perfect. I love this place and love that it's a tradition to dine here with my family before shows.
Always on point and delicious! Steaks cooked perfectly, lump crab meat sweet and tender. Cheesecake made with ricotta and cream cheese, creamy and delicious! Our waiter Dave Crosby is out to please!
Birthday dinner was fantastic! We live this capital grille!!
We love Capital Grill!! Service seemed a little slow ....we did have a larger group so maybe that was the issue.
I had been once before and had a memorable experience, yet this time despite excellent service I was disappointed. They’ve eliminated my favorite, the Delmonico, and more importantly the quality of the food was average at best. Three steaks at the table came out with the wrong doneness, and the portions and quality of the sides ordered were well under our expectations. Lastly the overpriced wine list is a bit much for what is offered. Needless to say, there are several better prime steakhouse choices downtown.
Amazing. Been to many Capital Grilles. This was the best.
It was great and the food came out fast and they did a great job making my girlfriend happy!
Our server was amazing! I wish I remembered her name. She was on point from the start with suggestions and good conversation. Our food however was just meh. Value for price - not good. My husbands ribeye was great flavor but overly fatty even for a ribeye, knowing it should be marbled throughout. He could only eat about 50% of the entire thing. This leaves me with my entrée. Twice I had to send it back. First time there was a hard line of fat or silver skin straight through the center of my veal which made it impossible to chew. Second time it came out, it was raw (not rare) all the way through the center. I prefer a medium rare but this was like ahi. Looked like the refire was rushed. The manager was pleasant and attentive and took my meal off our check. He did the right thing. I took my food home with me thinking I would eat it for another meal but was just very turned off. My dogs had a fantastic veal breakfast this morning though! I wish our food had been good because everything else was fantastic and we were treated really well.
I chose the Capital Grille for dinner with my wife while we were in the Charlotte area, based on my previous experiences with the restaurant. The service from David Crosby and the staff was impeccable. It was a little loud at times during the night, but not a problem.
My wife had the Shrimp Cocktail appetizer, Field Greens/ Butter Leaf Lettuce & Heirloom Tomato Salad, and the Seared Citrus Glazed Salmon w/almonds and brown butter entree. She enjoyed both, though the green beans served with the entree were raw - beyond al-dente.
I had the Jumbo Lump Crab Cocktail appetizer, Carmelized French Onion Soup and the Porchini Rubbed Bone-in Ribeye with aged balsamic reduction. I enjoyed all three, and the Lump Crab was exceptionally good.
For sides we also ordered half orders of Au Gratin Potatoes and Creamed Spinach. In hind sight, these were probably not necessary, and were "just ok" as well.
Over all, a very good dinner experience as I had expected. The "Stolli Dolli" is worth a try as well.
Have to ready to spend but hard to beat in charlotte
