I recently took my wife and two sons for dinner, Mother's Day. Nice for special occasion. However, I forgot to request a booth...my wife prefers them, not a prblm they found us one but it was very near the kitchen. All in our party agreed the best steaks they had ever had. This was my second time at 'The Capital Grille' ...first time was a few weeks ago in Wash DC. Both times great food. The service at the Charlotte restaurant was a little aggressive or too attentive. We were frequesntly interupted by wait staff, nice to be looked after, but fine line between attentive service...and 'here's your hat, what's your hurry'. For the amt they charge should be better.

We celebrated my birthday at Capital Grille and had a wonderful time. From the moment we arrived, everyone from the hostess to our server acknowledged my birthday, as my husband mentioned it when making the reservation. They had confetti sprinkled on the table when we were seated. The food was incredible, especially the Filet Oscar and the Flourless Chocolate Espresso Cake. Definitely worthy of a special occasion!

I have visited not only this Capital Grille but others and find the food and service to be outstanding. The location "Uptown" makes it convenient to walk to and from hotels and other establishments around town.

My now fiance and I went to the Capital Grille after I proposed to her. We have been here a few times before with friends and during restaurant week and had great meals and it has become one of our favorite restaurants.

From the moment we stepped through the door to when we were leaving, the staff waiting on us with a smile. When asked if we were celebrating anything that night and my girlfriend blurting out that she had been engaged for about an hour, they went above and beyond what we normally receive, which is great service.

Our food was cooked to order and perfect as it always is. We both had the lobster bisque, which was one of their specials and it had tons of lobster in it. My fiance had the sliced filet mignon and I had the balsalmic glazed delmonico, both of which were fantastic. For desert, we wanted to just share a cheesecake and instead, we got a piece of chocolate cake, a cheesecake and a creme brulee.

After a night like this, we will definitely be back for more at the Capital Grille.

We spend a lot of time up in Charolette visiting friends and we always try to make a stop here for dinner. The steaks are very good and always a good size portion. The seafood is very fresh. We do not eat here often enough to expect people to remember our names, but it seems like everytime we do come in, we are remembered, which is a nice feeling. Great service and worth every penny.
