We had a fabulous birthday dinner at the Capital Grille for my daughter's 21st birthday. The staff was great and the food was perfect. They even came out with a complimentary birthday desert for my daughter that had Happy Birthday in chocolate across the plate with multiple sampler deserts on the plate around the chocolate. Great time.

I regularly go to Capital for drinks as well as dinner. It's location in Charlotte is perfect for both before and after the theater. Close to everything so you can walk. The staff is, of course, excellent. Great restaurant with high standards.

We have been to this Capital Grille on several occasions and they have met or exceeded our expectations each time. The food is wonderful. Our server, Ross, is very knowledgeable about the food and beverages offered. We will be back!

What can I say, everything was awesome from start to finish. They served us free champagne to start our celebratory dinner. Then we ordered calamari for appetizer. The size of this dish is good for 4 to 6 people! We didn't finish the plate. For our main course, I ordered the bone in steak. My hubby ordered the steak with... More

The food was okay but the place is loud. I could not hear myself think. The service was good but not exceptional.

Loved going to this restaurant for the first time (as a native Charlottean). Valet parking took away the hassle of being uptown and we were greeted and served at every turn. Relaxed but sophisticated. And the food was perfection, including the incredible creme brûlée!! Yummy. Definitely won't be our last visit.

While the food was good, I had the salmon, the service is top notch. There for business lunch. The wait staff handled the busy crowd with grace and professionalism. Our table of 7 did not have to wait any extraordinary length of time for service as our wait team was very attentive. I have also been here several times for... More
