The Capital Grille
This is a great place to come and reward yourself with a fine dinning experience after a long work week. I cant say enough good things about this place. To begin with I love the lobster and crab cakes, they are so plump and filled with fresh lobster and herbs and its so full of flavor! My favorite dish is the double lamb chops or the seared citrus salmon. Both these dishes are amazing, its like the chef makes each order with your truest pleasure of food in mind!!! A true five star dinning experience!
Went with a large group. Calamari was cooked correctly (not like rubber bands). Crab cakes were good (no filler). Steak was cooked perfectly (rare), seasoned appropriately, and was otherwise one of the best steaks I have had. If you like brussel sprouts, get them here; they were delicious. The lobster mac and cheese was very good. The service was incredible; he was attentive, helpful, and anticipated our needs without hovering. In the words of MacArthur, "I shall return."

My wife and I make a point of enjoying The Capital Grille with a pair of other couples every time Charlotte Restaurant Week (the Queen's Feast) rolls around, plus we've enjoyed meals here for other important personal occasions. It is simply not possible to truly find fault with this establishment. The food is always remarkably good, whether you seek steak, chicken, or seafood. The service is attentive and cordial without coming across as inauthentic. And you really can't beat the noise level, which while energetic seemingly never impedes conversation. To be clear, I certainly don't mean to imply that the waitstaff and chefs are infalliblemistakes happen on occasion. But when they do, the customer is always made to feel as if they are the sole patron until the problem is satisfactorily resolved. Of course, this dining experience comes at a cost. But you will find that cost well within the typical range for this caliber of establishment. Would I recommend The Capitol Grille for your next special occasion? Without hesitation.
Lovely. I was in the mood for strawberry lemonade which wasnt on the menu. Was shocked when they brought out lemonade blended with fresh strawberries. Waitress was top notch. Potatoes were the best Ive ever had in my life. Desserts was amazing. Definitely returning.
Even great for vegetarians! My husband is a meat lover and this is his favorite steakhouse in Charlotte (we've tried them all). I'm a veggie lover and this is also my favorite steakhouse in Charlotte. We usually give them a heads up that a vegetarian will be joining, and they're always incredibly accommodating. It's always a different dish but I've had some of the best vegetarian pasta dishes I've ever tasted here and always look forward to going back.
