Wonderful dining 1/24/2011

My husband and I celebrated my birthday a couple weeks ago, and I chose Capital Grille based on co-workers' recommendations, and it didn't disappoint. Everything was great! We will definitely be back. more

LOVED IT 4/5/2010

The Capital Grille is a wonderful place to eat. 7/7/2009

Very nice ambiance! I had the opportunity to dine with some executives from my company and we were all pleased with the service. The food was very good! more

Whent here on a whim... Very Spurpirsed 4/24/2009

I'm not a fan of $50 and up steak joints.... My experience is that many of these restaurants are resting on their laurels. They are purely in the game to take your money and not deliver in the expectations they've created. Capital Grille Delivers!!!! I enjoyed the Delmonico and the Lobster Mac n Cheese (very airy, yet still creamy) Deserts where also surprisingly good. I would Recommend Capital Grille over other restaurants in it's class. Pros: Excellent Food!!! Excellent Staff Cons: Pricey, but worth it more

Over Rated Can you give 1/2 stars 4/6/2009

We arrived at the charlotte location at about 720 pm. Pros: calimari and wild mushrooms Cons: sams old mash potatoes more

If you think this is good, you should get out more 2/24/2009

I travel for business quite a bit. I have been to great steak joints in Texas (Bob's), Chicago (Gibson's), Portland (Ringside), Seattle (Metropolitan Grill) and Vegas (Boa and Craft Steak). I have been to Capital Grille in Boston twice and once in Charlotte. This place is terrible. Food is dry or drenched in a sauce. I want a great steak, charbroiled, not burnt, and no sauce. Capital Grille has failed all three times. more

Your night to be pampered 1/30/2009

We visited Capital Grille tonight for the very first time, it was ""restaurant week"" in Charlotte so we wanted to take advantage of the three course special for $30 each. We got there early because we wanted to sit at the bar for a bit. The hostess told us our table would be ready a bit before our reservation time, but to sit at the bar, enjoy, and let her know when we were ready to be seated. We sat at the bar and I asked for a Stoli Doli, which came HIGHLY requested on this very board - well y'all were right on! Delicious (albeit a bit pricey - $12 each). I downed two of them (haha, be careful, they WILL catch up to you, not right away though, I was definitely not feeling too hot during my heavy but heavenly meal). They are strong, but excellent. Anyway, while we were at the bar, I believe it was the manager or head maitree'de came over and said ""hope we didnt butcher your last name too badly when you walked in, your table is ready whenever you are."" I said to my fiancee, how did he know who we were??? (my last name is kind of hard to pronounce). I was VERY impressed by that personal touch. Then, the main hostess checked my coat and led us to our table, saying ""I hope this table is ok, we know you all wanted a private table"" (I had requested a quiet, more private table in my reservation on Open Table). Again, VERY impressed by the personal touch. Anyway, the service was great, our waitress and her assistant were fantastic. I got a filet and my fiancee got sirloin, both were cooked to perfection and melted like butter on the knives. The mashed potatoes were out of this world creamy... I ordered a glass of wine with dinner (wound up having too much alcohol tonight but that's ok, it was all great), it was excellent, their selection is phenomenal and broad. Dessert was AWESOME - I got creme brulee and my fiancee got flourless espresso chocolate cake. The creme brulee was AMAZING!!!!!! OVERALL EXPERIENCE WAS AMAZING, I'D GO BACK IN A HEARTBEAT! DON'T MISS THIS PLACE! Pros: Amazing food, great drink offerings, awesome service, classy ambience Cons: None that I can think of more

Good food, Good Drinks 12/22/2008

Went to Capital Grille this weekend for a relaxing dinner. Sat in the bar/lounge area in the front of the place, bartenders were friendly and very attentive. Ordered a filet, cooked perfect to medium rare, seasoned well. Drink selection ranged from their infamous Stoli Doli (sp?) to Stoli Elit. The Stoli Doli's were kinda fruity and didnt seem that strong, although probably more of a chick drink, but I was told I had to try one. The Stoli Elit drinks were pretty darn stiff and definitely worth the $18 each. If you come here, plan on dropping some loot. Pros: High Profile, Nice Afterwork Lounge, Good Food, Stiff Drinks Cons: A bit stuffy in the main dining area, Smoky in the bar area more

For steak lovers only 11/30/2008

I went to Capital Grille for a work function. It was not my choice to go there - not being a steak eater. Overall, the restaurant was very nice, sort of an old fashioned dark panelled boys club look to it. Great place for a business dinner. It was busy but the service never faltered. I had a piece of salmon which was cooked well but you can tell it was not one of the stars of the show. The lobster mac and cheese however was delicious. If you go there, I highly recommend this dish.\r \r It's pretty pricey, definitely not an everyday kind of place.\r \r valet parking is available. more

Not bad but could be better 9/16/2008

Overall I liked this facility and thought the food was pretty good. For the money I would like to see better food but it is a nice addition to the area. Pros: A nice addition to the area Cons: A little pricey for the quality of food. more

1 of my top 3 in town 8/8/2008

Family dining which is great. Wonderful mash potatoes. Espensive but great for speical occasions or to make great impressions. Valet service is recommended. more

Great Place!! 8/5/2008

Not much else I can say other than one of the best places to eat in Charlotte! The prices are on the pricey side, but they make up for it in the portion sizes served. Well worth the extra money spent! A great place for either a couple or a larger group. Pros: Large choice of specialty drinks, great atmosphere, mouth watering food more

Exceptional Service...All the Details 6/12/2008

After researching many restaurant choices to celebrate our 25th Anniversary, we chose Capital Grille. It was without a doubt the correct choice. The great staff addressed us by name, congratulated us on our anniversary, and timed their visits to our table perfectly while taking care of our every need. The table was dressed with heart and Happy Anniversary confetti and roses. The server took our picture and later presented it to us. Nice touch! They even threw in a wonderful chocolate hazelnut cake and told us to take the vase and roses with us. The manager visited us a couple times making sure everything was excellent and thanking us for choosing them to celebrate this once in a lifetime event. Oh, the food! Outstanding!!! We started with a delicious shrimp coctail with very large, meaty shrimp. The best I've had. I ordered the huge porterhouse steak which was cooked exactly as expected. The filet side of the steak was very tender, juicy and tasty. The sirloin side exploded with even more flavor. My wife ordered a filet with lobster in a perfect sauce. I could tell she enjoyed it from the sighs, rolling eyes and continuous smile. We topped all of this off with a great bottle of Pinot Noir. Some people have commented about the high prices. I feel the entire experience had great value. It was worth every penny. Exceptional service, outstanding food and beverage in clean and beautiful surroundings. What more could you ask for? Pros: Exceptional Service, Excellent Food Cons: Valet parking attendant should have opened the car door for my wife vs. me more

Amazing! 3/14/2008

This place is amazing. We had a wonderful time! The service and food was perfect. We had a larger group and everything went really smooth. more

Elegant Dining 2/21/2008

I love the decor and atmosphere at the Capital Grille. Here you will find some of the best steaks in Charlotte. However much they try to dissuade you, they will cook your steak to your liking, even if you want a filet medium well. :-) Entrees are pricey and served a la carte but you get great quality for the price. You MUST try the lobster mac and cheese! more

Pretty good food but I have had better 1/13/2008

wine list was extensive and the food was pretty good, not fabulous, but the atmosphere and service were supurb! Pros: Incredible wine list, fabulous service Cons: very expensive and need reservations more

The Capital Grille 12/24/2007

Food just decent and service laughable. Watch your wallet and check your bill! We were overcharged for quite a few things. Pros: Wine list Cons: Overcharged more
