We were celebrating our wedding anniversary. They sure did make us feel special. The staff and our waiter were very professional and made sure we were content with our food and experience. They went above and beyond! Also, nice atmosphere.

Went for my Birthday- food was amazing! The Twin Lobster tails from S Africa were the best Lobster I have had in many years. Super sweet and succulent. Cooked perfectly and couldn’t have been better. Wife had Lamb chops also done tremendously well.

Highly recommended

Terrible service. The waiter literally told me I did not want what I wanted, because he would not have time to explain the wines to me. Food was mediocre- steak was not tender, lobster macaroni and cheese was COLD (2 orders btw, both cold).

Special anniversary dinner and we were treated like royalty from the second we walked in. Drinks and appetizers were amazing followed my the best surf and turf I have ever had. The drinks were strong but not overwhelming. Of course, the service was impeccable as well.

I got to enjoy a business lunch on Sept 1, 2021 at the Capital Grille Charlotte location. The food was, of course, excellent. Three of the four of us had the ribeye steak sandwich and WOW! Our waiter David was excellent and we will definitely stop by again the next time we need a lunch spot in Uptown Charlotte.

The food was excellent as well as the choices of wine. I think the filet should be offered in a smaller size. I took home about a 1/3 of mine. We topped off dinner with the flourless chocolate cake that our server Sean recommended. I would go back just for that! I would not recommend sitting outside at all in the evenings. The noise from the cars , trucks and motorcycles that like to show off their speakers and loud engines was horrible. The Queen City should put a noise ordinance on that.

Definitely one of my favorite places to dine in Charlotte. Everything is made to perfection. The last time I was there I had the Rib-eye and it was flawless. Also ordered two sides which included mushroom and creamy spinach . I always enjoy Capital Grille and will definitely be back sometime soon.

This was my first time at Capital Grill. We received a warm greeting upon arriving and were seated immediately at a lovely booth. Our server was simply outstanding! Staton went out of his way to accommodate us and make our dining experience amazing, I must say he truly succeeded! The food presentation was beautiful and the quality was 1st rate. We left Capital Grill feeling comfortably full and greatly appreciated. I highly suggest trying this restaurant for a delightful change of pace to the boring lunch routine.

My wife and I enjoyed our first experience at the Capital Grille (13th year anniversary). We were quickly seated and our waiter Staton was superb. He made our first visit very accommodating and he was very knowledgeable about the menu. The balsamic glazed ribeye was perfect and the blackberry, woodford reserve mixed drink definitely complimented it. My wife loved the chicken breast and the asparagus and mashed potatoes were perfect. We also enjoyed the complimentary lobster fritters and dessert. They’ve definitely earned a couple of repeat customers.

We were excited to try this location for a special occasion. The reviews are mostly positive. The wait staff was extra nice and professional. The courses were well timed and the portions were quite spot on. However, for the price, which was expected, the sliced filet was quit flavorless and over cooked and the pork was lacking some flavor while undercooked. Yet we both ordered medium done, being assured that there it meant still a pink center. The soups were spot on and the lobster Mac was delicious enough to come back for alone. It was an experience we might repeat learning from past orders and trying something else on the menu.
