Fantastic food and service!

We had tickets to the Charlotte Symphony and made reservations to eat here since it is right across the street... Peter was more than fantastic as our server, he kept our wine glasses filled and was more than helpful in explaining the dishes... A fantastic fancy dinner out!!!

Anyone who has eaten at a Capital Grille knows that they offer great steaks and provide excellent service. They are very consistent across the country, and the one in downtown Charlotte is no exception. The decor is very tasteful as there is a lot of wood that creates a luxurious atmosphere. They offer some very tasty seafood appetizers that you... More

The dish has huge chucks of lobster and one of the best sides I have ever had. The staff is very attentive and the atmosphere great. Very... More

Had the 24 porterhouse steak. AWESOME! And the sides and appetizers great also. But what you should expect when it costs as much as it does. So got my money's worth. Valentine's Day was when we went. Atmosphere high end and staff were great. Wlll go back one day. Will just be a while but will go back.

We drove about 2 hours to eat at the Capital Grille for Valentine's Day. It was worth it. I had them make me a Kona Crusted Filet Mignon and it is by far the best steak I've ever had. Ruth Chris is like Burger King in comparison. Prepare to pay around $100-125 for each person. The Crab/Lobster cakes are fantastic... More

My BFF and I ate here before going to see "Phantom". I used to eat at the restaurant in DC in my younger days and it was always a 5 star experience. This location did not fail me!! Rob was our waiter and he was on his game. He recommended a 2011 Sonoma-Cutner Pinot Noir. I almost cried! It was... More

I have been to this restaurant a few times and the food is always great. I absolutely love french onion soup and they have the best. If you are a hamburger person well you are in for a treat. I wouldn't make plans on dancing the night away though after eating one the best you will do is set the... More

From the time I entered and talked to Edith, the hostess, I knew I was in good hands. We 3 had great seats that were in the main dining area. Rebecca and Kimberly treated us at a service level that you rarely see. Bryce and Armin, the managers, who make sure that everything works to their high standards were like... More

We put a lot of thought into coming here. We read a bunch of reviews on TA and checked the reviews of other steakhouses in the area. We only had one night in Charlotte so we wanted to go to the best Steakhouse, we had to suffer through a Texas Roadhouse the night before so we were ready for a... More
