We attended a dinner in the private room, and the food and service were exceptional. The decor and ambience are old school, the private room is a good size and convenience to uptown events is excellent.

If you are looking for an average restaurant that’s more expensive than it should be you found your spot. Had a mediocre roast chicken that was beyond bland. Bread looked liked it was popped out of a wonder break package. Service OK at best...not sure...More

I am not sure about a private room, however I have been there with 2 and with 20, and the service and meal was great every time. Your guests will enjoy the experience. And will talk about it for a long time.

The Capital Grille in Charlotte is my favorite spot. I know most of the staff and met some of the people who were training to work in Raleigh. Charlotte is A #1 and I'm sure with time Raleigh will be great too.
