We celebrated a birthday, and the Capitol Grille went above + beyond to make it a wonderful, memorable experience. The cocktails and food were exceptional, and the severe was impeccable.

Our steaks were not quite cooked exactly right the first time; however, the staff went over and beyond to make it right!! And for that I give them the highest rating. My only suggestion would be to make sure when confirming or taking reservations that we are told when there will be no valet parking. Because of that, I spent the first hour my myself in the restaurant while my husband was simply trying to go around the block and park in the deck. But I LOVE The Capital Grille! We had our rehearsal dinner there 18 years ago and will be celebrating our anniversary soon by going back to your restaurant! I also want to give a huge shout out to our server. I can't remember his name. He was working Saturday night at 7pm. I could tell that he genuinely wanted us to have an enjoyable evening even with all the issues going on around us! I can see why he has worked there a long time.

We really enjoyed the dining experience. Although I feel that it is overly expensive for what you are actually getting. I can go to some less expensive places and get some of the same food.

Wonderful dining experience. Swordfish was nothing short of perfection. New York strip was good but I’ve had better for less price. Dessert we had probably the best cheesecake I’ve ever had. Stafff was excellent.

It was good...however we had the “target lady from Saturday Night Live” as our waitress. She was very nice but a level 10...needs to tone it down to at least a level 3. It’s a beautiful classy restaurant let’s act the same!

We were in town for a quick weekend trip and decided to dine at The Capital Grille before going to the symphony. Early dinner but still busy. Excellent service, excellent food and excellent wait staff. Highly recommend. We have dined at our local Capital Grille in Northern Virginia and Washington, DC and both are very nice; however, we found this Charlotte location to be even nicer. You will not be disappointed.

Everything was really good. The steak was tasty but I have had better. Our server was just the right amount of attentive. Got very loud toward 8 pm, but it was a nice atmosphere in general. Overall it was a good experience and The Capital Grille is worth a visit.

My wife’s steak came out significantly overdone. It was fixed promptly, but lacked flavor. Our bill was $177 for two steaks, a side, and we split a salad. I would have hoped for better food for the price. A bit am disappointing.

The experience was fantastic. It was an anniversary dinner for my spouse and I and they went over and above to make it special. The hand written note and the heart shaped confetti on the table were an extra special touch. The food was phenomenal as was the service. We will be back for future special occasions. Thank you.

We went for restaurant week. We would probably not dine there often outside of the restaurant week deal due to high prices, but it was delicious and will be a place we will enjoy on special occasions.

I guess because this was restaurant week in Charlotte everything was rushed. The salad took awhile to deliver but after that you could hardly finish your meal before they wanted to clear your plates.

Generally wonderful experience. Arrived early but seated immediately. Great food with comfortable seating for 6 so all could converse. Noisy, but most full restaurants are now. Did not like computer tablet wine/drink selection. Must review choices one person at a time and pass tablet around the table. Simple wine/drink listing with menu much simpler.

We thoroughly enjoyed dining, once again, at the Capital Grille. Although the reservation was during Queen’s Feast, the dining experience was superb, save for the service (still relatively good). The Capital Grille remains among our favorite Charlotte restaurants. We hope to return, again, soon.

It would be nice for first-time visitors when they confirm the reservation to notify them about parking possibilities are the parking situation. The Ambiance was okay not what I expected the service was good the food was very tasty.
