NEVER FAILS TO DELIVER

You know what you get with a Capital Grille - marvellous steak, swanky surroundings and great service. I had the special trio of steaks, very nicely done, and we shared a massive dish of Brussels sprouts and potatoes au gratin. Very good wine list. Yes, it's expensive, but worth it.

While the food is good the service here is beyond compare and that is why I enjoyed dining there. It is expensive but for a special occasion or before the theatre it is a good experience. Good location for things in Uptown Charlotte.

Are here last night with a friend. We opted to sit outside as the weather was nice. We were promptly greeted by Mario who was very attentive but not overbearing. We both had the special-- a Waygu style ribeye with lobster mac n cheese and smoked bacon Brussels sprouts. Capital Grille did not disappoint at all. I love this steakhouse... More

Taking our friends out for a special meal, I was a bit disappointed. First of all, the waiters didn't remember who ordered which appetizer at our table and the asparagus soup, while delicious, wasn't hot enough. The prices are outrageous - even thought the steaks were super tender and delicious, sauces were nothing special and $45 seems a bit high... More

It is difficult to please a friend who is a culinary trained chef and sommelier. This birthday celebration did not disappoint. The service was perfect... there when you wanted them, and invisible when you didn't. The food was executed well, and all dishes arrived together and hot. This may sound like the basics, but some of the new trendy restaurants... More

Going to The Capital Grille you have high expectations. At the Charlotte location, these expectations were met. We had a wonderful evening with friends at the restaurant with delicious food. From the appetizers to dessert our food was amazing. An often overlooked dish (according to our server) is dry aged steak au poivre with courvoisier cream. I'd highly recommend it.

We stayed in Charlotte for a night on the way to the Master's. Our dinner at The Capital Grille was fantastic. David Crosby was our server and he was very helpful and made our dining experience even better. Although the steak was great, the best part of the meal was the lobster mac and cheese. It was to die for.... More

George Lee provided us with great service. He was attentive and personable. We were too full from dinner for dessert but returned after our show for dessert. Salad and steak delicious. Desserts exceptional.
