I went here as a single and sat at a table in the bar area. The troubles started right away: 1) my martini was brought with ice, not straight up as ordered; 2) my salad was ice cold, showing it had been pre-made and refrigerated, not prepared fresh; 3) my entree steak was not what I ordered and it had...

Must try the lamb chops! They are excellent! The staff is friendly and they provide great service, very attentive. Lots of choices on the menu. Pricey but worth it!

This restaurant is located in the heart of downtown Charlotte. The atmosphere is excellent and the staff were outstanding. Its a perfect upscale place for business which was the occasion that evening. The Capital Grille is a chain that is always excellent for ambiance, food, and service. And so it was for us as well. I highly recommend.

We chose Capital Grille based on TripAdvisor reviews and our hotel's recommendation. Being a steak restaurant, we expected to get good steaks.. and we were not disappointed. They were excellent, and the potatoes au gratin were divine. The tuna starter was not great. The ambience was warm and dark - lots of tables full of businessmen. The wait staff were... More

The ambience and service are worth the investment in Capital Grill. It is the perfect place for marriage engagements, toasting the new profits, and entertaining the President. It has been the pride of downtown Charlotte, NC, and many other cities across the nation for years. All the meats are tender, the potatoes and vegetables perfectly seasoned, presented in a five...

Very nice restaurant, but too expensive. You can get great food from great resturaunts on the same street for 1/2 the price.

Went to the Capital Grille to celebrate our 50th Anniversary with an other couple. Everyone of us had a meal to remember. We each said it was probably the best meal we ever had at a restaurant. They also went above and beyond with an anniversary card and a special desert for my wife and I. We will definitely be... More
