Lovely place, food very good but the experience was horrible

We went there for restaurant week and the food was very good. Not quite Sullivan's but better than the Beef n' Bottle. The restaurant is gorgeous - you feel like it's an old school 5 star hotel lobby from a long-ago era that's been preserved and kept meticulously clean. The mirrors, lighting... read more

My wife and I were invited to dinner at the Capital Grill with our friends Rich & Aida, their granddaughter Christine, her fiancee Daniel and their great granddaughter Cassie. We had 4:30 reservations for dinner because it was Queens Restaurant Week and that was the only available time. The restaurant was almost empty when we arrived but by the time... More

Excellent food, but read the entire menu. Watch for the nude men as one enters; the kids may get an education about anatomy.

I would have to say that out of all of our trips to the Capital Grille, this experience tops them all. Our server George was the best we have had in the 7 years we have been dining with The Capital Grille. The service was unbelievable and unforgettable. He personalized our experience like we have never had before. Thank you... More

We had never been to The Capital Grille and decided to take advantage of Charlotte Restaurant Week. So glad we chose to dine there. It was excellent! From the moment we walked in, the service was exemplary! Our waiter, David Crosby, was the best. We also took advantage of a special wine tasting, The Generous Pour, and David helped us... More

Wonderful evening there with my daughter -- great atmosphere, great food and wonderful service! Having been a long-time customer at the Capital Grille in D.C., I was surprised by how large this Charlotte location was! Everything was great - but the carrot cake was over-the-top! Have tried to replicate it when at home baking, but just can't crack the code... More

Two of us ate here on a Tuesday evening without reservations. We were seated immediately, and soon after were greeted by our waitress. Service is always top notch at this chain. You always know what to expect and are never disappointed. For appetizer, I had a strawberry salad, my friend had oysters. I had the ahi tuna, my friend a... More
