“Always Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

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 high quality food served, impeccable service and ambience. Our waiter, Marc Alwine, exceeded my expectations by giving me a mint lemonade "to go" as well as ensuring we had beverages and everything we needed throughout the meal. I can't wait for the opportunity to return.

“Worth Another Trip and Soon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

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.

“I love this place ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

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 flows surprisingly well in that location. The noise never bothers me because everything is so great. We were NEVER rushed and we were there a long time. It's very rate to have a dinner at that length and not have 6-7 courses.

You must come to this place if you don't want to be disappointed. The crab cakes are the best in Charlotte. Don't think you will not pay though. We paid dearly but worth every penny.
