The Capital Grille - Charlotte Ratings and Reviews
The old saying, 'you get what you pay for' is true here. Got A+ service and excellent food. Took away one star on the food because my filet came out medium instead of med-rare as I ordered but they did come immediately after serving and asked if all items were cooked as ordered. I simply did not want to hassle and wait and it was great as it was anyway. Other than that super great experience.
Always perfectly prepared meals with great menu selections. The service is impeccable, wine poured timely, fresh water often. Our waiter, Peter, was helpful with wine selections and assured our meals were served timely and prepared to our requests.
There was a time when Capital Grille was THE special occasion spot in Charlotte but with the ever-expanding restaurant scene those days are over. Everything we ordered was just okay - steaks were average, side dishes were average, cocktail was average. Nothing was bad but nothing really stood out about the meal or the experience which is disappointing when you spend $250 for dinner for two. With all of the other options available in Charlotte, we have no need to return to Capital Grille.
I know this was a great place to dine as soon as I walked the door with my guests. We were greeted in seconds and shown to our table. ALL the staff on the way to the table greeted us and welcomed us. We were celebrating 2 birthdays and they had handwritten cards for the two people. There was confetti on the table, very celebratory. The waiter was very accommodating and extremely friendly. They even brought out two little deserts with candles in them at the end of the meal, complimentary. Expect to spend about $100 person and a bit more if you buy alcohol.
Great place to have a wonderful dinner.
Chose CG for our 30th anniversary...and we were not disappointed. Maitre d' greeted us with best wishes and the champagne offered was excellent. Food--as always--was superb. Many thanks to Tim , our waiter, for making this special occasion even better. Will return, no doubt.
Quiet Friday evening at The Capital Grill....Memorial Day weekend and Speed Street (NASCAR Coke 600 race) was set up outside on Tryon....guessing it kept many diners away. Our balsamic salads were good....15 yr aged balsamic was delicious but the olive oil was not particularly flavorful....tomatoes could have been a bit riper, too. 10 ounce filets were done to perfection (medium rare)...selected since they are the smallest cut of meat on the menu. .. delicious. Service from Tim was excellent. There was a couple dining several tables away who had an extensive (and louder than necessary) conversation with one of the chefs and their server while their son (age 8?) ran around the restaurant in a toque the chef had given him...definitely detracted from our dining experience.
Capital Grille does it right when it comes to delicious food and top notch service. I let them know ahead of time that we were coming for a very special birthday, and they went out of their way to make my family member feel special, with complimentary glasses of champagne for the table, dessert for the birthday person, even decorative confetti on the table. Several staff members also told him Happy Birthday. The food and drinks were divine, this is always our favorite place for special occasions. Well done, Capital Grille.
Our server was great and very attentive. We took our son and a few of his friends for his 18th birthday. They had birthday confetti on the table already and as soon as the waiter came to great us he acknowledged the birthday boy. Those are the extra touches that make places like the Capital Grille special.
While there are many wonderful dining options in Charlotte, The Capital Grille remains my personal favorite, outstanding food served consistently from the kitchen, and truly professional service in the front of the house pair for a flawless experience.
My son chose Capital Grille to celebrate his 15th birthday. Both he and his younger brother were able to find plenty of options and were both happy with their meals. CG offers a children's menu, which is fantastic for those of us with younger family members often overlooked in more adult-oriented restaurants. The service was fluid and well-organized and everyone took great care of us. The food was wonderful as always.
They did such an amazing job that I've already sent a note to Capital Grille thanking them for making a special occasion even more special. The food was awesome as well as the service. They went above and beyond with little nice touches which made the whole lunch experience outstanding. They make you feel like royalty the minute you walk in the door! I was VERY impressed!
Everything from the hostess to the end of the evening was spectacular! Everyone was unbelievably nice and welcoming. The food was superb. Having just moved to Charlotte from NYC, this capital grill far surpasses the one in the city. Will definitely be back!
Do your research beforehand and make sure there aren't proms, bar crawls and the opera going on at the same time. Traffic was a nightmare but we didn't lose our reservation and our outstanding waiter, David, calmed us down with a really nice Duckhorn. We shared the Filet and the seared Tuna which were both delightful. Too full for dessert but the Warm Chocolate Cake would have been my choice.
Been a customer of The Capital Grille since the 1st one opened in NYC in 2005. We moved to NC 6 months ago and this was our 1st visit to the Charlotte location. Too bad we live 2 1/2 hours away or we'd be there more often. Everything was excellent and this was our best Capital Grille experience. Highly recommend.
