Very nice restaurant, but too expensive. You can get great food from great resturaunts on the same street for 1/2 the price.

Went to the Capital Grille to celebrate our 50th Anniversary with an other couple. Everyone of us had a meal to remember. We each said it was probably the best meal we ever had at a restaurant. They also went above and beyond with an anniversary card and a special desert for my wife and I. We will definitely be... More

What a wonderful time we had and such a delicious meal. Great menu to choose from along with a very extensive wine list. The wait staff were very attentive. We would go back in a heartbeat.

But....in all honesty I just didn't like my meal that much. I had the French onion soup and the classic... More

Capital Grille does not disappoint. The food is always amazing and the service is always great. My friend's food wasn't cooked right and our server and 2 managers went above and beyond to fix the problem. This Charlotte Capital Grille is one of my favorites. The lunch menu is really good but there are some things you can order off... More

We celebrated my daughter's birthday last night at The Capital Grille.. The wait staff took every opportunity to make sure she felt special the entire time. They even had her a card on the table. Our food was amazing. There is not one thing I would change about our dining experience. The service was perfect as well. I highly recommend... More
