While visiting Charlotte, we enjoyed lunch at Capital Grille. We had no real intention of "anniversary" lunch, but our waiter asked if we were celebrating! Having lived in DC for 8+ years before moving to SC, we often time enjoyed dinner at the DC Grille. It was wonderful to repeat that experience in Charlotte. Setting, staff, food...everything was perfect. Thank... More

Last night was an exceptional evening. From the time we entered the door, everyone in the staff greeted us with a warm, We were taken to a cozy table where they really made our time there special.

They had a special menu for Mother's Day. When I saw it, I knew my Mom would enjoy it. We had an 11am reservation. We arrived on-time and were seated right away. The weather was gorgeous that day, so we decided to dine al fresco. Our waiter John was very attentive and got everything right without writing anything down. The... More

The atmosphere was nice, the staff was good. I don't regularly spend over $100 a person on a dinner, but on the once or twice a year that I do, I expect it to feel like a $100 per person experience. Unfortunately, Capital Grille was not worth a second visit for me. The main reason is my wife and I... More

I had much higher hopes for this restaurant after hearing all my friends talk about it. Drinks were ok, but I expect a better selection from a high end restaurant. The meal was average at best. Steaks over cooked, apps were flavorless, salad dressings were basic. Overall I will not be coming back for Unless someone else is buying

The Capital Grille provided me with one of the best meals I have ever had. The entire experience was enjoyable and although it is pricey, it was worth it. I dined at this restaurant because I was celebrating my law school graduation. Our server, David Crosby, made my experience one to remember and I couldn't have asked for a better... More

Just took my kids to Capital Grille for a celebratory meal. It had been awhile since I had visited and our experience last night just reaffirmed my belief that it is one of the top restaurants in uptown Charlotte. I'm more of a filet fan but their bone-in 22 oz. rib eye that my son put down was one of... More

I've visited twice, first time was a bit late at night. Ordered the specialty of the house, nothing ordinary, plain and simple. The steak was dry the first time, when I decided to visit again the Steak was fairly better but a bit too rough.
