The Capital Grille - Charlotte Ratings and Reviews

Never having been to Charlotte we chose the Capital Grille for our family dinner from the outstanding reviews. We were not disappointed. Our waiter, Ken, was courteous, knowledgeable and greatly added to the experience. The food, of course, was superb.

OK--so this is not the first time for the Capital Grille and their game was off. Have actually been dining there for 9 years, business, lunch & special occasions. Short version server not on his game this day. Noise level was high considering this was early lunch hour and the dining area was no where near capacity. This was simply a (round) table of loud mouths who wanted to share their conversation with everybody in a 40 foot radius--even after their food was delivered.
The food: Lobster & crab burger served with truffle fries for lunch companion was deemed acceptable, presentation was good. I decided to try the Wagyu Cheeseburger over the Lobster roll & the Lobster/crab burger. Mistake, asked for medium well described as pink center throughout--just right. Burger shows up cut it in half and blood runs across the plate--not good for ground beef. Back to kitchen, returned same burger with new bun and topping--charred to a cinder at this point. Salvaged a few bites and let it go. Knew it was the original burger as I had cut it in half. Kitchen simply charred it beyond recognition, and placed on new bread. I know because when I cut it in half this time the burger was now in quarters. Less than impressive for the Capital Grille. Throughout the lunch we had to repeatedly ask the server for one thing after another--he was off his game and appeared to be in a fog.
Will I return--yes because I deem this a one off situation as we have dined there for over 9 years on a semi-regular basis.

We took my parents here to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary and the evening was perfect from beginning to end. The staff was charming and accommodating and took my dad's disability in gracious stride. My parents felt special thanks to the wonderful meal that we experienced under the deft hand of Jim, our table captain for the evening. Excellent food with attentive, unobtrusive service.

Our evening dining experience was exemplary. From the attention we received when we entered Capital Grille to the time we walked out to leave our time there was off the chart. Our meal was to die for, from our starters to desserts, my compliments to the chef's as well as the wait staff. What a wonderful evening. Thanks to all at Capital Grille, Charlotte.

Fantastic time at Capital Grille in Charlotte.
Special thanks to the waiter George Lee who went the extra mile to ensure I had everything I needed.
Also thanks to the manager Armin Ahrabin who chatted with me and made sure everything was good.
Lastly, that's to the chef who made the best Ribeye Steak (medium +) cooked to perfection.
Great job guys.

We went to the Capital Grille to celebrate a family event. We were fortunate to have Ken as our server. His knowledge of the menu was outstanding and he was incredibly personable and friendly.
Two of us got the bone-in beef tenderloin special and requested the blue cheese crust. My brother-in-law loves crispy on the outside and very rare in the inside. He said it was the best he has ever had, which is high praise from him. My tenderloin was a perfect medium and the lobster ordered by the others was delicious!. I am originally from the Maryland/Delaware beach area and commend the Capital Grille on the Jumbo Lump Crab Cocktail-wow. It had the biggest lumps of crab and it was delicious! We enjoyed the oysters and calamari as well. Loved the warm chocolate cake. The cocktails were wonderful. Our only disappointment was the Cabernet Sauvignon. It was not worth the price we paid and mind you, we spent a good bit of money on this dinner for four.

This was my first time at the Charlotte Capital Grille and I was not disappointed. Everyone at the table took my recommendation and had their steaks with the Kona rub. Raves from all.
Capital Grille remains one of my go to places for business dinners.

We had a fabulous experience at Capital Grille!! It was my boyfriends 25th birthday and we chose the restaurant to celebrate. I let them know on my open table reservation that it was his birthday. When we arrived I had barely stepped into the restaurant with my boyfriends birthday cake before the mater'd greeted me and asked if he could take the cake from me and place it in the back or refrigerate it - AWESOME first impression!! We decided to get a drink at the bar (great service there) and we were given chips to snack on. Once we were able to be seated we notified the hostess and were seated immediately. The table had birthday confetti on it and a birthday card. It was so special. Our server, Antonio, greeted us quickly and asked if we would like a decanter for our bottle of wine that we had brought from home. Even though the wine wasn't expensive, we appreciated that he offered and took him up on the offer. We started with the lobster and crab cake appetizer which was AWESOME. My boyfriend had the special bone in rib eye, I had the 10 oz filet. We shared the lobster Mac and cheese and the potatoes au gratin. Everything was perfect. When it was time for dessert the server brought the complimentary birthday dessert followed by the cake we had brought. Then they took a picture of us with the cake and sliced it. It was the perfect birthday dinner and one we will never forget.

Worst experience at Capital Grille I've ever had. Steak was horrible, service was non-existent, wine was fabulous. Thank goodness for the wine. My clients were so unhappy with our meal that we had to stop and get sushi after dinner. When we told the waitress that our steaks were all awful, she shrugged her shoulders and walked away. She returned with our bill. This will be my last time to this restaurant.

Great Anniversary dinner! My girlfriend and I were celebrating our our seven year anniversary and we had an excellent night. The server, Chris, was very nice and knowledgeable of the menu. He also offered recommendations that were really good, such as the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella. I would definitely recommend The Capital Grill and I look forward to this becoming one of our new favorite places in town.

Another great evening. Took our son to The Generous Pour. inlove this promotion as we get to taste 7 different wines and then each choose which we would like with our entrees. Ask for Peter...he serves you with elegance

We usually go to Capital Grille for wine and desert after a concert. They have the best flour less chocolate cake and always an excellent selection of wines. This past Thursday, we went there for our 21st wedding anniversary. The service was amazing, the food was delicious! I never liked Brussells sprouts... as probably the rest of the world... well try the one at Capital Grille Charlotte... it will change your life :)

Amber, our waitress, was awesome! We were on a "double date" with another couple, and we participated in the "Generous Pour". She was knowledgeable, funny, and attentive. We had a great time- the food was amazing, the wine was excellent, and we are repeat guests!

I love the ambiance in this restaurant. I definitely will return to try some more dishes. The wedge salad was delicious with the bacon and the blue cheese dressing. The salmon was pleasing to the palette. The flourless chocolate cake was very moist. The server, Peter, made the dining experience very memorable. The whole staff was very welcoming and friendly. We can't wait to return to the Capital Grille!

The food is wonderful beautiful restaurant we went during queens feast and it was still over 100.00 for both my husband and I but we would go back again for a special occasion I had the herbed chicken it was so good and my husband had the filet he said it was very good also
I would recommend this restaurant highly

Per recommendation of waiter steak was cooked medium though I stated I prefered medium rare, it was a little overdone. My date's steak was med rare but somehow not juicy. My liqour drink was very weak and the dessert was adequate. Overall the meal was not worth even the discounted price.

Solid as always, but a lot of family's (kids) at the restaurant tonight. Made for very loud environment and not as pleasant as usual. Was a soccer tourney in town and looked like a lot of underdressed, rowdy, loud fans.
Perhaps consider at least a minimum dress code- no shorts, t-shirts, flip flops? At least go business casual? Just my 2 cents.
Meal and service was solid as usual.
