    A standard "go to"venue for Charlotte's Queen's Feast (restaurant week). Food, service and ambiance are all predictably excellent The wine list is a bit pricey, so if you have a favorite bottle at home it is usually worth it to pay the $25 corkage fee.

    Food was good as always but the service is way too rushed Felt like we were in a diner and they needed to turn the tables. Main meal came 10 minutes after we got our salads and they tried to clear our plates before I was finished.

    My husband and I went for dinner last night, and it ended up being restaurant week, so we ordered the filets, medium rare, when I cut into mine it was a light pink and clearly different from my husbands- which was a perfect medium rare. Our server Stanton, was amazing and knew it was over cooked and immediately took the plate away. However, the issue came when the manager came up and was EXTREMELY rude and said he was confused because the one he threw away “looked just like his” and pointed to my husband and said so he just wanted to make sure I wanted it warm in the middle. First of all, that was the first time in my life I’ve ever sent back food and for the manager to come out and argue or imply I was lying like I didn’t want to eat my dinner was very unprofessional. However once I got my second steak it was cooked perfectly and the food was delicious and our server was perfect. Just disappointed in the management.

    Went to Capital Grille for both mine and my boyfriends birthday that are only a day apart and had a wonderful experience. We were brought to the table with birthday cards for each of us from the restaurant with personal messages that were so good it was like they knew us. Our server Sean Murphy pulled out all the stops for our celebratory occasion, he was so thoughtful and attentive. I cannot wait for our next dinning experience at the Capital Grille. And with parking Validation parking was only $5 and conveniently located just around the corner from the restaurant.

    I had a great experience at The Capital Grille. The Valet was great for a stormy night in Charlotte. It was much appreciated. The sitting area was comfortable and the ambience was beautiful. This was a special occasion so they had a lovely handwritten card waiting at the table to make the guest feel very special. We started with the salad but disappointed that there wasn’t any butter lettuce which was mentioned on the menu. We ordered the filet and it was cooked to perfection. The au gratin potatoes were delicious and creamy. The asparagus was fresh and flavorful. We had the dessert platter which was also very good and fresh as well. We will be sure to visit here again soon.

    Wow, what a great experience for our first time dining here. Everything was top-notch from the time we walked into the door. The wine selection was great, the Black Tie Margarita was very tasty. Both of our steaks were cooked to perfection and the side of mushrooms and brussel sprouts were delicious. They had a card and table decorations already on the table when they sat us down (it's the little things for me). They also brought a birthday dessert, so the attention to detail was very appreciated. Our server Karmyne was absolutely amazing. She was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy this special occasion. Would definitely recommend and we will be back!!

    The food and service here is always top notch! With inflation today the pricing is getting crazy, so bring your wallet and a bonus check. But this was a double birthday dinner for us so worth the splurge! We will be back again.

    This was my first time at Capital Grill and I was very excited as I’d heard so many good things about it. The bread was very hard to start. I then ordered the filet mignon and truffle fries. The steak was cooked perfectly to my medium well request. However, it was very dry and not flavorful. I asked the server for butter and chose shallot butter but it tasted more like gravy. The lemonade was very good and our server was nice. Overall, I really expected more given the reputation of the restaurant.

    It took a long time to get drinks. Soup came out with steak entree versus before. Servers were polite but kitchen seemed slow. Cheesecake desert was extremely too sweet. Mashed potatoes were overly puréed. Not excellent for the high dinner prices.
