The Capital Grille Restaurant Review

: At The Capital Grille Charlotte power brokers meet for meat, post-work cocktails and business dinners. For appetizers, calamari is pan-fried with hot cherry peppers, while the steak tartare with truffled deviled egg is an inventive take on a classic. Seafood also gets its due among the starters beyond the calamari, with shrimp and oysters having starring roles. Meat lovers go for the dry-aged steaks but there’s something for everyone, including the double-cut lamb chops, lobster, swordfish with lemon-shallot relish, tuna and citrus-glazed salmon. Sides are equally appealing: spinach, truffle fries, lobster mac ‘n’ cheese and more. Among desserts is our suggested coconut cream pie. The 400-plus-bottle wine list impresses with its breadth and depth of varietals and geography, but prices can be staggering. On the lighter side, a bar menu offers some tempting tidbits. Service is professional.
