The dinner from start to finish was excellent. We had the lamb chops for an appetizer. The filet and lobster and the Tuna entree were delicious. My wife and I just moved to Charlotte from Atlanta and had eaten at Capital Grille in Atlanta many times. Charlotte’s food is better than Atlanta. We will be back very soon!

The Charliotte Capital Grill has been consistent in its exceptional service and quality of food. Plus, the gin martinis are among the best I have had at fine restaraunts across the United States. It is always a first choice for me when scheduling a business dinner when I travel to Charlotte.

Food was a little better than average. Service was excellent Was shocked at the pricing, but accepted it as a one-time deal. Two of us spent nearly $275 excluding tip (only one cocktail each and one glass of wine each plus meal) and I feel like I got legally ripped off. It was an experience and I can say I've been, but doubt I'll go back.

Our wait staff was excellent but did confuse our split check between the two couples present. Our dinners were just good. The calamari was excellent. There seemed to be limited non-steak options for dinner - maybe it just appeared that way because there were so many steak options. My husband's steak was not evenly cooked but had a good flavor. They provided a very beautifully presented dessert tray for my husband's birthday. Valet parking was also very good - fast with receiving and retrieving our vehicle.

I’ve always had exceptional service and top quality steak until this visit. The calamari was amazing but the 18oz bone in Kona left much to be desired this time. 8:45 reservation rendered immediate seating but entrees came over an hour after.

Our waiter was fantastic and so was the food. Host staff was very kind! I enjoyed everything, except my moment at the bar. I went to grab a drink while waiting for my table and the bartender saw me, but never acknowledged me. Thankfully a kind server saw me standing there for over 5 minutes and got me a drink while I waited. The bartender seemed more concerned with the person sitting next to me who was dining there than someone who just wanted a drink while they waited. Although it was busy, a “hello” would have been polite.

I have enjoyed The Capital Grille for many years! It is quite frankly the Best Restaurant in Charlotte and one of the best Steakhouses in America! The Service is impeccable and the food is divine. Our waiter was Shawn Martin and he is clearly a "master of his craft"! It's not just about eating it was an evening to cherish!
Excellence personified!

I brought my husband here for his birthday last week. We love dining at The Capital Grille because the servers are totally phenomenal and always extremely knowledgeable. Michael Wolkow was our server during our last visit and he was definitely perfection at its best! Michael was very personable and a total class act! We will surely request Michael during our next visit.

I enjoyed Capital Grille for my husband’s 50th Birthday, It also was the end of Restaurant Week so it was very crowded, noisy and busy! My steak wasn’t cooked correctly after 2 trips to the kitchen and the connseiur was very nice and gave me my meal for free! Our Waiter was very nice and professional and called us by our name which was very personable! The Lobster MAC and Cheese is worth the trip! I would definitely go back but not during Restaurant Week!
