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!

The Capital Grille never disappoints. This is my second time at this particular one and it was solid both times. The food was great, the service was great. Pricey but worth the money.

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.

Everything you'd think The Capital Grille would be!
One of the best meals in a long time. I normally frequent Del Friscos but have family in town and took them somewhere close. Everyone loved it as the Grille definitely made a good impression for the first time visitors.
Great special and service!
Our Server was wonderful - she was so attentive and had a lovely demeanor. She anticipated and filled every need. The special was outstanding. We were celebrating a friend's success and it truly was a special celebration.

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.

Rebecca our waitress was very attentive and also knowledgeable of the menu
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!

Shocked to see my $120 wine handled so roughly while in the bottle and when being decanted from a height of 2 feet. I mean, it was nearly foamy. Turned out to be available on the web for $17.

We dined at the Capital Grille the last time we were in Charlotte. Again, it did not disappoint. We had the filet mignon and ribeye, as well as lobster bisque and mac & cheese with lobster. Amber is an excellent server. We'll be back.
Wonderful Dining Experience
I surprised my husband for his 73rd birthday. Both the food and service were outstanding. Many thanks to both Alexis and David for making this a memorable dining experience. Also kudos to the Capital Grill management for the delicious complimentary deserts.

The location is great especially outdoors when there's a live band playing. Food could be better honestly, the best thing we had was dessert!

Honestly cant imagine a better place for our anniversary dinner! Fantastic!
Hit and miss.
The service was great, the food was not. My steak was extremely fatty and the grits were so salty I could not eat them. The lobster Mac and cheese was great, so was the salad. I expected more from this restaurant due to the price range that they are in, but unfortunately they did not deliver. I'm extremely dissapointed.

Headed to The Capital Grille for Mothers Day brunch. Was impressed with the ambiance and the locale. Was disappointed in how slow the service was and inattentive the waiter. Given the premium pricing due to the holiday, I was further disappointed with the delivery of the food. It took almost 90 minutes to receive our main course and worst of all it was not hot. The NY strip was served at room temperature and the Lobster Frittata was greasy and light on lobster. Likely will not return.

Denise was our server she is the best Took care of everything When it was one for dessert we were surprised by the managers platter of assortments and champagne Our evening was over the top CAPITAL GRILL CHARLOTTE is the place to go They do it right food was fantastic, friendly staff and a great ambience Thank you Capital Grill staff for making our evening one to remember
Excellent food as usual!
As always, the food was incredible! We got the lobster crab cakes for an appetizer, and they were awesome! Delicious with a corn salsa and sauce that complimented the dish. We got the market lobster, already stripped off the shell making it easy to eat. So delicious! It was quite busy at the time, so the activity and noise level were high. Unfortunately, the service was lacking. It was impersonal and basically neglectful. I hope they recognize the fact and remedy this problem. We will come back, for the food of course...

Everything was exceptional. Peter was a wonderful server. I will be back soon.
The evening was for a birthday dinner and it exceeded our expectations. The food was extremely good--HIGHLY recommend the Seared Tenderloin with Butter Poached Lobster Tails and the Chilean Sea Bass with Mushroom Soy Broth. Very Tasty! The service we received from Antonio was impeccable and he not only made the experience inviting, but was pleasant to visit with as he came to the table to welcome us, recommend options, present our meal and check in on us. We will be returning in the future!
The food was impeccable, the service just right.
My wife and I have made the Capital Grill our goto for celebrating special occasions. Yes the food is consistently great, but there are other restaurants that have great food. However, it is the staff that really makes Capital Grill stand out from all the rest. They are obviously well trained but they seem to be able to find people who truly take pride in making sure our dining experience is great. That comes through on every visit!
