Great place!

Staff is extremely friendly, steaks were great, just like the lobster-crab cake starter. Also nice wine selection!

I've never experienced more attentive service in a restaurant - ever. The food was quite good, but I've had better for much less money.

Everything is so good, the food and the wine. Just great. Especially for a chain, you never expect to be blown away but this place did a great job. Always valet, parking in uptown is a mess.. So convenient and delish!

I went here for my partners birthday dinner. The food was amazing, arrived in a timely manner. Advice from the server was very helpful. He was very polite and attentive without being intrusive. Had a lovely evening and would definitely go back.

I let my wife and friends out and went to park the car. We had a Queen's Feast Reservation. When I came back they were no where to be found. I was told they had not checked in. They told me to wait. After getting a drink at the bar, I checked at the desk again. No, they were not... More

Visited this restaurant during Charlotte's Restaurant Week (3 courses for $30/$35). Our waiter was friendly and helpful throughout our entire meal. Very helpful with our wine selection, which I enjoyed very much. We ordered from the restaurant week menu and both had the New York strip, with the mashed potatoes and green beans. Wedge salad and clam chowder was our... More

Three times now I have had poor service from Capital Grill. When I want to pick up an order at an agreed time, I don't want to wait 20 more minutes because they don't have it ready. When I make a reservation with guests at 7:00, I don't want to wait for 30 minutes for a table. And, nothing special... More

We made reservations ahead of time at this high end chain restaurant. The steaks are incredibly prepared to your liking and the taste is out of this world. I ordered the 22 ounce bone in rib eye steak with the lobster mashed potato, which is enough to share. The server was very attentive to our requests and soda refills were... More

Wow, was our meals at this first time visit at the Capital Grill excellent! We took our newly married daughter & son-in-law for an evening out since they had just moved to Charlotte within walking distance to Capital Grill. My wife said her lamb chops were some of the best she's ever eaten. Our steaks were delicious. The lobster mac... More

It's a chain, people don't like chains. They are stupid. This place is amazing. My wife gets the tuna, I get the steak - last night was the bone in filet. Holy amazing-ness. Lobster Mac and cheese is also a must. Service is exceptional.
