The Capital Grille steak was good. But their version of scalloped potatoes was more soupy than creamy. The service is what you would expect from an upscale Steakhouse but not over the top. And the drinks I ordered tasted canned and not fresh. Not sure what caused that. I prefer the Palm in South Park over this location. They have... More

let´s start with positives: possibility of free parking, good food nicely presented on the plate, welcoming atmosphere. But: dining room was dark (even waiter used torch to show us wine label) and really cold. In this restaurant I would expect professional service - waiter how friendly however had no clue how to serve food and wine. I really suffered watching... More

I am quite selective with my 5 star ratings however this truly lovely restaurant well earns it. It is one of our top dinner choices for our frequent family weekend excursions to Charlotte. Its’ excellent downtown location makes it an ideal venue for dinner before or after events at the very nearby performing arts center as well as the sports... More

This was my second trip to the Capital Grill. Fantastic tenderloin. I had the aged NY strip the first time out in January. Restaurant Week makes it very affordable to try new places. My boyfriend and I will definitely be back.

The food was delicious and a few items were prepared exactly to my specifications. The server was more than well informed about the menu. He was well spoken and was always available when we had questions and dealt quickly with our requests.

My family & I celebrated my birthday here on Saturday night. My oldest son wanted to surprise me as I have spoken very highly about the Capital Grille in Denver Colorado. When he was able to get reservations at pretty much the last minute my alarms went off. There are no last minute reservations at the Denver location, it is... More
