You really cannot grow wrong at any Capital Grille that I have visited and the Uptown Charlotte location is no exception. The steaks are great, the appetizers are worth the calories, the sides tasty and the service is always wonderful. They also pour a nice drink.

Service is impeccable! One of the bartenders, PD is the BEST, very attentive! Try the Stoli Dolis (pineapple martinis) they are perfection!!! All of the steaks are impressive, seasoned wonderfully and temperatures are always on point. I have given the lobster mac n' cheese 2 tries, dry both occasions. That's the only negative I've ever experienced in over 15+ visits!

This is my go to place for special occasion dinners and business lunches. Best calamari in town. Steaks are good but I could have just the calamari and go home happy. Service is always wonderful. I've eaten here multiple times with never a bad experience. It's not cheap but it is worth it!

Took my mother and sister for a birthday surprise. Reservations made through OpenTable. I was called by hostess two days prior to comfirm. Upon arrival, we were given a very nice table in a quiet part of the dining area. The table was decorated for "birthday" with confetti and the wait staff called me by name after introductions. We were... More

We went with 3 other couples during Queen's Feast. The food was great particularly for th e price during that week. They did give us the regular menu, just in case we did not like what was on their Queen Feast menu. Everything was outstanding.

Three couples went for "Restaurant Week". This is a busy week for them, but this is their chance to gain a lifetime customer. While the steak was good and the sides (potatoes, asparagus) even better, the service was a bit snobbish and slow. They did a have a good wine list, though. We most likely will never return.

Capital Grill is a favorite of my husbands and mine. They make everyone feel special. They also have been known to pack up leftovers and keep them for people while they attend the theaters. The food is fabulous portions are large so you may want to share sides..

The ambience is wonderful and the steaks are excellent. Although the restaurant is on the pricey side , we keep coming back.
