The lobster salad and special cheeseburger was utterly delicious. My waitress, Sherry, was extremely, friendly, attentive and made me feel very welcome. She really made my dining experience very nice. Additionally, the 2 ladies at the reception were very friendly. When I left they remembered that I was visiting Charlotte, NC for the first time and told me to enjoy my stay. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. The food, the service and the people there are exceptional!

We were in the mood for the large seafood plateau and a bottle of champagne - what a great choice! Everything was amazing - especially service from Joe. When we're back in Charlotte, we coming here again!

Perhaps arriving fan hour before closing was not a good idea. My 16 ounce prime rib was rather "cool," not hot in temperature --- even after I sent it back. This was the ONLY time Capital Grille did not meet my expectations! But, I still have high praises for Capital Grille and will definitely return. It's still one of the BEST restaurants in Charlotte!

We've dined at many steakhouses - all are pricey - but Capital Grille is the only one who really gives you your money's worth in food quality and service. The steaks are out of this world. Our server, Angel, was not only efficient but so sweet and personable. We only go on special occasions, but this place makes it truly special.

One of the best restaurants I have ever had the pleasure of eating at. Absolutely top-notch food, courteous and personable service, and a terrific location to boot. The ambience is very noisy, but it was 9pm on a Saturday night so YMMV. We had a fantastic time and we will return for sure!

I celebrated my birthday with four other people - and we all had a wonderful time. The food was great, the service was fun, and the ambiance just right [elegant and not noisy].

I've been there a number of times in the past, and will go there again soon.

The tables were too close together, you could here people’s personal conversations the tables next to us got their after us but still got their food first the food looked good just tasted bland the good thing that had flavor was the cheese cake but it was a tiny portion of it. Wish it was an actual slice of a cheese cake you usually get. But

Food was fine was servers were cold and indifferent. Service was slow and restaurant did not
appear to be unusually busy. Our primary server was like a robot. No warmth and made no effort to engage in any sort of conversation. Ambiance is okay but lackluster compared to other Capital Grilles we’ve visited.

I am a Capital Grille fan anyway, but the Charlotte location is my favorite one. The team is phenomenal - they are very attentive and great conversationalists on top of delivering the highest level of service! The lobster bisque is my favorite, and it never fails to have large satisfying amounts of lobster in the bottom. That sounds kind of obvious, but you’d be surprised how many restaurants are too sparing regarding the actual lobster portion of the soup. The filet with mushrooms and fig sauce is out of this world. The Caesar! The wine list! Keep it up. See you soon!

My husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary at Capital Grille. It was ideal. From the ambiance, friendliness of the staff, food etc...it really was worth the cost. Not many restaurants around where you can count on such a quality overall experience. Mario was our waiter. He never missed a beat. Thank you Capital Grille of Charlotte.
