I'm not a huge fan of steak restaurants, but my son is and really wanted us to go here. And I am glad that we did. After a long day of setting up his first apartment, we had a late reservation. We started out with drinks at the bar. I had their special infused pineapple martini. It went down very... More

Had a fantastic meal. Sea bass was the best I have ever had and the lobster mac was heavenly. Beautiful wine list, food and service. Big shout out to Scott our server! He was wonderful.

I always enjoy going to Capital Grille. I visited this one in Charlotte while on business. As usual, the service, food and décor were superb. Oysters, salad, asparagus and lobster were the selections this night. Excellent is all I can say. Capital Grille is always a good choice.

Today I hosted a business lunch at Capital Grille in Uptown Charlotte which was my second visit to this location (had dined previously at the Tyson's Corner, VA location many times). The food was amazing; a tasty and plentiful blackened tenderloin entree salad followed by the table sharing the carrot cake. Capital Grille is consistently excellent in terms of the... More

We tried this restaurant during Restaurant Week and are so happy we gave it a go. The service was excellent as was the food. Filet mignon was tender and flavorful and the salmon was very good. Warm bread, tasty salads and delicious desserts rounded out a lovely meal. We certainly enjoyed our evening here and can't wait to go back.

In Charlotte, there a few staples that almost never miss. This place is one of those places. Incredibly, 3 of us spent almost 4 hours there and it was absolutely fabulous. Put waiter was amazing, the food was amazing and the wine was flowing. This place is ALWAYS loud so don't try and come for a quiet dinner but it... More

We enjoy the Grille frequently. It's on par with a Ruth's Chris and its never a dice roll on the steak. Consistant quality with professional and kind staff.
