The Capital Grille
- Open Now
Not the best sliced Fillet Mignon lunch I've had in the US, but this is one of the top steakhouses in Charlotte. Service was excellent. They have a large wine cellar with great selection of wine. Best to come for dinner with friends/family to have the maximum wine-and-dine experience. Good steakhouse with proper wine gear. Shall revisit.
The the Service and Management Team here is absolutely impeccable; the food, however, is just par and, in my opinion, not worth the price. And, If you're a true steak lover and connoisseur and can appreciate an excellent USDA Prime Grade, Dry-Aged (or Wet-Aged) Steak, this is probably not the place for you. Yes...their steaks are dry-aged but are not a Prime Grade; they are more of a CAB Grade (Certified Black Angus - Top 7%, Choice Grade) which is a relative new "grade term" that the Cattle and Restaurant Industries seem to be marketing as a subtle, "unspoken" substitute for Prime. Though less expensive, I find that most upper-tier restaurants who serve CAB Grade Steak (like Capital Grille) but do not expressly advertise "USDA Prime" within their menu, continue to charge the customer "Prime" prices while alluding the customer into thinking "Prime Grade" by embellishing descriptions like "Dry Aged" and "Hand-cut". I think Capital Grille Ownership would show greater integrity and be better served for the long-term by offering "true" USDA Prime Grade Steaks and charging more for them, rather than offering the current CAB (Type) Grade that is priced too high for the value. Again, the quality of service and management here is great; just over-priced based on the quality of food.
Top notch service and food. It's the usual fare, which you can trust to be well done from all aspects. Always feel free to reach out to me on Twitter @joerazz
This place absolutely amazing... I would recommend this anyone. We celebrated a graduation and the service was second to none by every member of the staff. Thanks for an amazing night!
My husband and kids brought me here for Mother's Day and we had an amazing time. Our server was Ross and he was THE BEST!!! He was knowledgeable, professional and extremely personable. I highly recommend this restaurant and especially Ross.
