I never want to eat anywhere else!! – My husband and I went to the Capital Grille a few nights ago for our one year anniversary. I just have to say, I don't know how I can ever go to another restaurant and be satisfied, knowing what great service and food would await me at the Capital Grille. We had the best evening ever!! Our server was knowlegable and friendly, he even took a picture of us at the end of our meal as a momento (and printed it out!) The manager came by to wish us a Happy Anniversary and made great conversation. The food, oh boy the food, the best meal I've ever had hands down. Needless to say, I have a reservation there for lunch next week with a client and the week after with my husband again. I almost feel deprived that I hadn't discovered this restaurant sooner! I'm a new regular!!
Best Food, Customer Service, Atmosphere!!!! – I went to The Capital Grille for a private event. The room was amazing. We all had a wonderful time! I had a dry aged steak and have never tasted a steak so juicy and flavorful. The sides were great! The dessert is homemade in the restaurant. We got a platter so we could try all of the desserts. They were so good! The atmosphere was great. The private room our group dined in was beautiful. We also had after dinner drinks in the beautiful lounge. The stoli doli is the best drink I have ever had. To top this wonderful food off, the staff is so friendly and helpful. They are right there before you ever need to ask for anything. This is an upscale resturant but the servers are so friendly, not stuffy like other upscale restaurants I have been to. I will go here for all of my special occasions, business dinners, and more!!! You have to try this place!!!
Great Steak, great Martinis, extensive wine list! – We went for my husband's birthday and we had a great meal. We were 15 minutes early and they had our table ready but offered to seat us at the bar or table, whichever we preferred. The service was excellent, with multiple people serving our table. They decorated the table with confetti, gave a complimentary dessert for my husband, and took/ printed a picture for us to take home.
We both ordered the Filet Oscar. My husband prefers his medium well, which is sometimes difficult in a filet; however they cooked a thick piece perfectly without butter flying the meat. Mine was also cooked to medium perfectly and the lump crab on top was fresh and had an excellent delicate flavor.
We had the calamari for an appetizer. Very tender and prepared well with a light battering. They toss it with peppercinis, so it has a little heat, but it's very good. The wine list is extensive but the signature drink- the Stoli Doli is a must. It's made with pineapple that's marinated for 2 weeks, and yet it's not overly sweet, just slightly. Excellent!
We finished off with dessert and coffee. I ordered the chocolate hazelnut cake, and would not recommend it. It was slightly dry and the flavor was, well not quite chocolaty enough. My husband had the coconut cream pie which was very good. If you are a coconut lover you wont be disappointed.
Overall service was excellent. Servers were knowledgeable and very prompt! Great place for a special evening for two or for a business dinner. Our bill was close to 200 including tip, expect to pay more if you order a bottle of wine etc. It was worth every penny. We will definitely go again!
OK if you have money to burn – I tend to agree with "roadraged. " The prices are rediculously overinflated. The only thing that set this place apart was the amazing service. But considering just our 20% tip for our dinner-for-two was $30, I can see what motivates the waitstaff. We really could not get what the fuss was about. The waiting area was virtually nonexistent. The bar was noisy, crowded and smoky. Our food was ordinary at best. For at least half the price, we could've gotten a better tasting steak at a nearby steakhouse. Not to mention, during the holiday season, reservations need to be made AT LEAST a month ahead of time. And I definitely discourage bringing chldren.
Only the stuffy need attend – This restaurant is so overrated. I hear all the stuff shirt bankers talk about how fantastic, how great..... oh please. every single time someone want to go out to a place they say there. I know it is for nothing more than to say Oh I went to "capital Grill" last night, big deal. The prices are so over inflated, steaks are just OK, appetizers taste frozen and the wine selection is just alright. My husband one of the biggest red meat eaters on the planet has gone away from there saying let's go grab something else after dinner to maybe make me feel satisfied not bloated and robbed after the bill arrives. No different than any other steakhouse in America. Just really a bunch of people who are crying for attention and should be crying from their wallets being emptied.
The best place for business – If you have a corporate card this is the best lunch venue in the city. The food, service and drinks are impeccable.
Try the Stoli Doli! – Excellent appetizers, entrees and good place for happy hour. Sit at the bar for apps and cocktails if you want a more casual experience. It's pricey but worth it. Get the calamari and try a stoli doli!
YUMMY – Best steaks in Charlotte in a fine setting with wonderful service.
I wish this place was closer to home, it would be a weekly visit!
For a steak the melts – it was great to have a steak cooked medium well and have it actually come to you as medium well. atmossphere was great. they prepared this lovely seasonal vegetables with squash and nuts etc.. luckily i had some before they discountinued it. Wine list is like no other. staff is very attentive and attractive. location is great. parking is right around the corner in the lot. seems like the crowd like to drink stoli dolis.
excellent fine dining experience – Ate at the capital grille for the first time for our anniversary and it was excellent. It was a total experience from the start. Made the reservations online and specified that we would be celebrating our anniversary. We were seated at a very nice and romantic table and treated to a complimentary desert. They also had heart confetti sprinkled on the table and the desert was served on a plate that read happy anniversary. They were a bit late when seating us however, they more than made up for it by taking care of the drinks we had ordered while waiting. Service was great as well as the food. Highly recommend the calamari as an appetizer...very tasty!! The wine selection is also wonderful and quite extensive. Highly recommend The Capital Grille, especially if celebrating a special occasion.
