The Capital Grille - Charlotte Ratings and Reviews

As usual The Capital Grille is a go to for me when choosing fine dining in Charlotte. I have always been and hope to continue being a patron of the Capital Grille since being introduced to it several years ago. I attended the Queens Feast at The Capital Grille this past weekend and overall was pleased . I do think that the sides that are served with the menu have become a bit smaller than what they used to be, I wished that they had not replaced the creamed spinach with the green beans... The creamed spinach is so much better. I also think the host "Alexis" was a bit uppity towards myself and my party, for no real reason and she never did smile. I also wish that the option for lobster tail would come back... It was an additional 10.00 and I would have paid that if I had the option.
Overall, these are small little "tweaks" or changes that I would like to see. Overall the atmosphere, location, and food are excellent the service minus the hostess Alexis was very good and the overall experience was a very nice night away from the office.

My filet was a little over done, but my sister's steak was totally over cooked. The server fixed my sister's steak, but I would have thought the cooks and chefs would have made sure the meat was perfect before leaving the kitchen. I will be back and I'm sure everything will be perfect next time.

We went for The Generous Pour and we were not disappointed. We sampled 7 wines and then chose what we wanted with our dinner. The Shiraz was lovely as well as the Cab Blend. The Chardonnay went well with the prosciutto and cheese. Just a great night.

We are always greeted and our table ready! The staff all so accommodating which makes the experience even better. Right in the heart of downtown makes this location wonderful just before a show, or any entertainment. The food is always on point! A great spot!

The staff was fantastic! I called a few hours prior to my reservation to let the maitre de know that it was my boyfriends birthday dinner and that I wanted my waiter to know that the bill should be given to me at the end of the experience. When we arrived, I gave my name and immediately the staff welcomed us with a Happy Birthday to my BF. When we arrived to our table, there was confetti in the table and a very nice card wishing my BF a happy birthday! WOW! Totally unexpected!
Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable, attentive and courteous.
The food was outstanding!!! I have been to Capital Grille many times and it never disappoints! There are many great steakhouses in Charlotte but this has always been the best food and dining experience.

Dinner for Wife's special Birthday . Excellent table! Phenomenal service. Excellent cocktails and wine! The appetizer was very good and the meal was world class!!! We couldn't have asked for a better dining experience. And did I mention the very special birthday desert? A very special surprise treat!

We were visiting the Charlotte area from Dallas and wanted to have a nice dinner. The food and atmosphere was very good. The dessert was not to our liking but everything else was very tasty. We chose an Australian wine off the wine list and the taste along with the steak was awesome. The valet brought us the wrong car so the wait for the vehicle was longer than it should have been. However they did help us with trying to locate the horse and buggy ride in the city. Overall was a good experience

It was our first wedding anniversary and I let the restaurant know before hand. They put heart confetti on the table with a sweet card. After we had a delicious meal they surprised us with a lovely dessert plate that spelled out "Happy Anniversary" in chocolate. Very special and it made our evening. Highly recommend it!

We went back to the Capital Grille after 3 years for a date night and had an amazing time. We were fortunate to sit outside on a great evening. The food along with the service from Shawn was just outstanding. It's definitely not a cheap meal but well worth when you look at the overall experience.
Just a heads up if you want to dine outside: make sure you request that in your reservation.

Excellent as always! Had a bottle of wine, a well-prepared filet, asparagus, and a warm double chocolate cake dessert with ice cream... left fat and happy. The Capital Grille provides superior service, food, and ambiance coupled with a fabulous wine selection. Would highly recommend!

Dinner at The Capital Grille is always amazing! We celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary here. From the complimentary champagne toast to the lovely roses, everything was perfect! The food is simply exceptional! And the service is outstanding. If you want to make it special, then The Capital Grille is the place to be!

My daughter and I were in town for a wedding and made a quick decision to go out on the town for a nice dinner, celebrating my birthday. We were treated like royalty. Service was phenomenal, food was superb, wait staff - Dave - was extremely knowledgeable on the wine selections and especially on the menu options. We definitely made the best choice.

First ever dining experience at The Capital Grille, and I will be returning as quickly as possible! The food, service, and atmosphere were all impeccable. I will be requesting the same server upon my next visit, because he was so accommodating as well as knowledgable concerning the selections. He offered a number of suggestions which did not disappoint. This dinner occasion was to celebrate my birthday, and I was greeted with a birthday card. This is an establishment that really take the little things into consideration. After all it is the nuances of a meal and not the food itself that truly make an amazing dining experience. In my opinion this is the best restaurant in Charlotte.
Delicious food, polite staff
I've been to the Capital Grille twice, and both times had the lobster mac. It is amazing. The portions are a good size and are shareable so the prices aren't too bad. The waitstaff are always very attentive and polite, although I've sat outside both times, the noise level inside isn't bad at all. It's a good place for a nice dinner, a date, special occasion, etc. everything on the menu looks fantastic. I will continue to visit the Capital Grille!
Great Overall Experience
Great experience. Wine was phenomenal. (Caymus 2013 Cab) Apps were great. Calamari and crab cakes. Sides were amazing. (Lobster mac, mushrooms and brussell sprouts) Wish steak would have been cooked a bit less, but it was remedied. Highly recommend. Best Cap Grille that I've dined in.

We enjoyed a nice anniversary dinner with terrific service and wonderful food. The filet with butter poached lobster tails was amazing. Jennifer Hansbro was our server and we enjoyed her thoroughly. She was very attentive and enhanced our dining experience. Thanks for the classic steakhouse food and first class service!
