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

I took a business client here last night. We sat at the bar and watched Monday night football. Not the typical capital grille experience, but for two guys it was just right. It didn't really matter where we sat. The service staff was right on every step of the way. They gave an outstanding selection on a Cabernet (duck horn)... More

One of my favorite restaurants in uptown Charlotte, Capitol Grille always comes through with delicious cuisine and excellent service. The calamari is a must try appetizer, with its cracked pepper and tender texture. The best steaks- their specialty- and fish entrees are always perfect. Theatre goers love the valet parking that allows late pick up after the show, so it's... More

The Capital Grille steak was good. But their version of scalloped potatoes was more soupy than creamy. The service is what you would expect from an upscale Steakhouse but not over the top. And the drinks I ordered tasted canned and not fresh. Not sure what caused that. I prefer the Palm in South Park over this location. They have... More

let´s start with positives: possibility of free parking, good food nicely presented on the plate, welcoming atmosphere. But: dining room was dark (even waiter used torch to show us wine label) and really cold. In this restaurant I would expect professional service - waiter how friendly however had no clue how to serve food and wine. I really suffered watching... More

I am quite selective with my 5 star ratings however this truly lovely restaurant well earns it. It is one of our top dinner choices for our frequent family weekend excursions to Charlotte. Its’ excellent downtown location makes it an ideal venue for dinner before or after events at the very nearby performing arts center as well as the sports... More
