Diner Reviews
  • "This is a nice restaurant with good ambience and a very attentive wait-staff. We were a party of 11, so service was an important part of the experience. The steaks were superb. However, the lobster and shrimp on the seafood platter appetizer were rubbery and obviously previously frozen. The handling of the wine was a bit amateurish. Customarily each bottle is tasted in a fresh glass, but the server just opened the second and third bottles and went around pouring. Surprisingly, he poured red wine in empty glasses that had white wine. Egad! Overall the experience was quite good and I am sure we will have other special occasions there in the future. "

  • "They provided us with a semi private room and excellent service. Everyone in my party of 5 was very satisfied with the service and food. We plan to hold more dinner meetings at this location. Some self parked in the garage and others used the valet parking."

  • "From our arrival to departure the Capital Grille staff displayed Houston Hospitality at its finest. From a starter champagne to celebrate their opening to a dessert sampling we were treated very well. Our waitress was very helpful with the selections and timely in delivery. Three of us had beef filets and they were cooked to perfection and very tender. The chilean sea bass was delicious as well. We will certainly be back. This restaurant is a nice addition to city centre. The only improvement needed is the valet parking. It was quite congested between the restaurant patrons and the people trying to leave the general parking garage. I would recommend the valet service have more people on staff on weekend nights."

  • "Really enjoyed the restaurant, but the next time, I'll seriously consider going to Brenner's or Flemings instead, so I don't have to deal with the parking/traffic issues at City Centre. The valet out front helps some, but they didn't have their act together the night I was there, and it added to the headache of physically getting to the restaurant. I realize a lot of that is beyond the restaurant's control, but unfortunately it impacted my experience at Capitol Grille. Once inside and after a stiff cocktail, the service, food and ambience were as good as anywhere I've eaten in the city."

  • "My first time at Capital Grille was exceptional. My wife had been there before and requested we go there for her birthday with some friends. The staff went out of their way to make the birthday dinner special. The table was decorated with nice little accents and a birthday card was waiting on the table. We received some delicious complimentary champagne to start the evening. The waiter was very attentive and did not interrupt any conversations. He also did a nice job of selecting an appropriate wine in the price range we desired. The meal was delicious and the mac and cheese with lobster to die for. All in all, a great evening and we will surely return!"

  • "The Capital Grill has a reputation for having great food and outstanding service; however, the CityCentre location is not living up to the restaurants reputation. The food has been fair the last 3 times we have visited and the last time the service was lousy. The waiter forgot our drinks and was always MIA. For the price, our service and food should have been better."

  • "Yes, it's expensive, but it's worth the money. From the time we walked in I was greeted by name, and magically every staff person we encountered knew who we were and addressed us by name. The staff is exceptionally well trained. The food is top notch, and the portions are large. The side dishes are intended to be shared, and could be by several people. When we go here we often get a main course plus a couple sides - it provides enough leftovers for lunch the next day. The parmesan truffle fries are a favorite of ours (yes, I know truffle oil has nothing to do with truffles), as is the lobster mac & cheese. There are a lot of great steak places in town, but this consistently makes my list because of the consistency and top-notch service."

  • "I've tried Capital Grille - City Centre twice in the last week. Once for business and again for personal dining. I'm really glad to see such a classy, upscale restaurant in City Centre. Valet parking is good but it helps to know the area a bit during busy hours. Service and food have been very good to outstanding both times. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We love the bar which is not overcrowded with tables. The bar service was also outstanding. We will be back!"

  • "Our biggest challenge with the new Capital Grille at City Centre was actually finding the restaurant, its front door (which isn't very clearly marked), and its parking. Once inside, even though we came quite late in the evening, we were greeted warmly, fed well, and served with pleasant energy and attention. It's easy to see why Capital Grille has such a good reputation — the food is excellent, the wine list quite impressive, and the service very good. It's pricey, but that's not a surprise. We greatly enjoyed our filet and lobster combos and a moist, delicious chocolate cake dessert. The shrimp cocktail featured excellent shrimp, though — our only quibble — with an overly spicy cocktail sauce. We look forward to our next visit."

  • "I had no idea that this restaurant was in this shopping area and near me. I am so excited to see Capital Grille in CityCentre!!!! I shall visit them many times in the future. I am also happy that this area has grown and flourished to what it has become. However, I do miss Neiman Marcus terribly and wish that a few higher end stores could come back in to match the higher end restaurants like Capital Grille."

  • "My husband and I dined at Capital Grille City Centre in Houston for the first time to celebrate Valentine's Day. The staff, from the hostess to the wait staff to the manager, all worked intently on making it a wonderful experience. They didn't disappoint and neither did the meal! We chose a wonderful steak to share along with the sides, Lobster Mac & Cheese and creamed spinach. Needless to say, there was no need for a "doggie bag"! We were too full to think about dessert, but our waiter, Cody, brought out a bite size truffle for later in a decorative box. A wonderfully spent evening!"

  • "Environment was nice...we were running a little late but they held our reservation. The waiter seemed a little rushed to take out order. Extended time for bread to come to table....almost 30 mins after we were seated. Appetizer and dinner came out timely. Waiter took forever to remove our used plates for table. Overall it was ok."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I was very disappointed in the service level from our waiter & frankly, all of the staff. We had a reservation & arrived about 10 minutes late due to traffic & poor valet signage. We were seated after 2 other guests that arrived after we did. Michael's service was poor. He would very quickly scan the room and walk out. A couple of times I needed his assistance but he wouldn't stop & ask if everything was ok. My champagne flute glass was chipped & he did not notice. I noticed it immediately. When our meal was over he asked if we would like to order dessert. Unknown to myself & my fiance that a complimentary dessert was being brought to us. He should have known that in advance & not asked if we would like to order dessert."

  • "This was our first time here for dinner. It was perfect! The only negative was the parking. I would probably use the garage before using the valet the next time I go."

  • "The place is worth the $125 ticket, but the parking situation at towne and country is awful. Even the valet spots, over 70% of the spots were all full. Go early or very very late."

  • "Our first visit to new location at town center -once we found it (blocked road , lots of traffic on Saturday and no prominent sign indicating location ) everything was great. Everyone in our party agreed that steaks were the best any of us have had in a long time -that includes Perry' and Ruth Chris."

  • "The Capital Grill was Great! They went out all out for Valentines Day. My wife received a long stem rose and we received complimentary champagne and chocolate truffles. The Delmonico ribeye was excellent and you have to try the lobster mac and cheese. Overall experience was outstanding! Will definitely make this a spot for special occasions."

  • "This was not my first time to capital grille, but my first time to this new location. My fiance and I have always had an enjoyable experience. I ordered a steak medium and it came out rare. They took it back and it came out exactly the same the second time and it was still the same piece of meat. They took it back again then came out just right . Because of that they not only comped my steak but also gave me complimentary soup, complimentary dessert, and complimentary after dinner cocktails. They definitely go to the extreme to ensure customer service!! Lobster mac and cheese is a must!"

  • "What an amazing experience I had at Capital Grille in City Centre. I dined at the bar, which I don't think I would ever do it differently at this restaurant. Service was perfect, from bartenders, bar managers, food runners, all management I encountered. Extremely friendly and their attention to detail was amazing. Food was exceptional. I had the tomato mozzarella basil salad, which was amazing. The porcini rubbeded delmonico I was cooked to perfection w/ great char and balsamic glaze. Not usually a desert person but was able to try the coconut cream pie, changed my mind a bit about not ordering desert! I highly recommend this place, and I will definitely visit again soon."

  • "You would think when someone is eating at your restaurant for the first time and has a reservation, you would not place them by the kitchen door and wait staff area when there were plenty of vacant tables elsewhere. Not a memorable first impression! For $200, I'll be spending my money elsewhere."

  • "You will pay an average of $60 per person. The restaurant is geared toward an older crowd (not very trendy). Service was excellent and waitstaff is very knowlegable. The wine list is positively massive and has everything you could think of."

  • "I live in City Centre and have been waiting for Capital Grille to open. We tried it on Friday night with another couple. First impression as I walked in - it was a lot more romantic and couple orientated .. but also seemed to suit two couples having dinner together. The cocktail and wine had a great selection - and I have more trouble deciding on what drink to order, as so many sounded delicious, rather than 'settling' on something cause there was nothing I particularly fancied. All the food was amazing .. and the Mac n Cheese Lobster was definitely one of the best I have ever had. The service all night was impeccable and very professional. Its rare to find a restaurant that excels in both food and service at the same time."

  • "The best anniversary dinner I have had yet. There were little hearts on the table upon arrival and a hand written card wishing us a happy anniversary, they also gave us a complimentary champagne toast. We started out with Caesar salads which were phenomenal. For the main course I had the sole and she had the filet, both were impeccable. Then after all of that they gave us a complimentary dessert and a photo of us with it for our anniversary. They definitely went above and beyond to make it a special occasion. The service was also remarkable, on top of all else they offer complimentary valet parking! Will definitely be back."

  • "This was our first time at the City Center location. We were a party of six. We all found them spot on. Re the food: we all found it prepared to the requested degree. Several, however, found the meats (lamb particularly) somewhat bland, perhaps lacking some added herbs or spices. (None of us is on a salt kick.) And while our waiter was attentive and gracious, he lack the polish we had come to expect at the Galleria location. For example, he didn't get all the orders on the first pass and had to request a repeat. Lastly, when the three woman requested that their leftovers be boxed, they came mixed up causing us to open and redistribute the boxes. We'll be back and hope that this newer location reaches the stature of the Galleria operation."
