We've gone there for our last two anniversaries, with the first time exceeding expectations. The table had been set with small hearts layer out on the tablecloth, complimentary glass of champagne was offered, and the manager and staff dropped by to wish us a happy anniversary. The steak was cooked to perfection, and the scalloped potatoes were great. Beat in... More

Before going to a show at the Blumenthal or after work I always enjoy stopping in at Capital Grill. I grab a seat at the bar, order a drink and settle in. I could spend hours there. The wait staff are knowledgable and nice. The bartenders are on top of any needs you have and those you didn't know you... More

We enjoyed the creamed spinach, truffle fries, mushrooms and lobster mac n cheese. Accompanied by a couple desserts, wine, beer and cocktails, made for a... More

There was an Anniversary card to us as well. Then, our waiter brought champagne to not just us, but our daughter and son-in -law as well. Our waiter, Joe S., was... More

Went during Restaurant Week with another couple and must say we were all pleasantly surprised. The food was perfectly prepared and was presented by the wait staff with a little flourish making it just that much nicer. Will be returning soon.

Great food, classy, wonderful atmosphere. Highly recommend a visit. Not inexpensive, but worth it. Not sure if they offer valet parking or not but this was one of the places we stopped during our Charlotte Crawl :)
