The CAP in CLT is always rockin. We love to sit in the bar in the cozy booths and order delicious wine and whole steamed lobster shelled in the kitchen and watch the crazy scene unfold. Service fantastic. If you like to dine in bar at booth - call and reserve 407 or 408.

My friend and I had dinner at the Capital Grille early one weeknight after a day of house hunting. It was a lot more expensive than we anticipated, but the service and food were very good. Our server was delightful, wish I had asked his name, and he quickly picked up that we were tired and just wanted to eat... More

My wife and I dined here for the first the other day. We came with another couple and we wanted to treat them as congratulations for a new job our friend had just received. So I was picking up the check for four. There are pros and cons that we experienced throughout the evening. Pros: Great calamari. Good asparagus. Good... More

First trip to the grille with a couple that was familiar with it. The atmosphere was great, servers were attentive. Food pricey but worth it. Excellent.

We went with another couple and it was outstanding. Paul at the bar took care of us while we waited for our friends to arrive. Top notch professional! We were served by two servers at our table. Oysters and Calamari were great appetizers The wine list is impeccable and the cellar is impressive. I had the scallops with risotto and... More

I have never failed to have an outstanding experience at the Capital Grille. Paul the bartender always serves up great drinks, a friendly smile, and great conversation. Last night I had the beef tenderloin sliders and the wedge salad. Both were off the charts. Feel comfortable coming here with family, friends, or customers for any occasion. You will return often!

This is a don't miss The Capital Grille! Alex, our waiter was spot on with his recommendations, his knowledge of the menu and wine was impressive. The bone-in filet and South African lobster melted in my mouth, it was the best steak I've ever tasted. The attention to detail is rarely seen these days. Highly recommend!

If you are looking for a great special occasion outing, or simply a way to make attending the Belk Theater easy, consider dinner at CG. Valet parking for the restaurant is right across the street from the theater and they get your car to the curb just as the show ends so you walk out, pay, get in and go.... More

Dropped by the grille with my two boys after the game Saturday. Almost canceled my res and left when my youngest son pointed out the sanitation score displayed on the wall. 92! Our local Golden Coral is a 97 and it’s a high traffic buffet. We did look up the violations online and decided to take a chance anyway and... More
