  • "First time experience. Server was great. Food was outstanding. Prices were on the expensive side, but we knew about that in advance. We'll definitely return on special occasions. Free valet parking in City Centre was a definite plus - alleviated the parking mess at City Centre."

  • "This was first class start to finish. Love, love, love this place. We dined because of houston restaurant week. Menu was the best quality I had seen for this promo. I can see why this place is popular. It has the feel of a private club. Everything we had was excellent. steaks were dry aged and perfectly cooked. bread was hot with butter sprinkled with salt from france. ceasar salad was great with aged parmesan. deserts were perfect. flourless chocolate cake and key lime pie. Staff checked on us over and over but not obtrusively. They also have an $18 dollar menu for lunch that looked good that includes a salad and an entree. A++++"

  • "I recently took my wife here to celebrate her birthday. We were treated wonderfully from the moment we walked in the door - she was wished a Happy Birthday four times before we even reached our table. The dinner was incredible - everything was delicious, but the Kona crusted Sirloin Steak was one of the best steaks I've enjoyed in a long time. The wine list was impressive and the service was impeccable. When time came for dessert, my wife had trouble deciding between her two favorite items. Having finally made her selection, the waiters brought her both! We were treated to complimentary champagne, a rose, and a souvenir photograph of our dinner. Overall, the evening was romantic and memorable. We WILL be back!!"

  • "The restaurant was great, they greeted us right away and was very thankful for us being there. The dinner portions were fulfilling, the wine list had a great selection. We placed our order and found ourselves finishing our food and waiting at least 10 minutes for our next course. Over all, we had a great experience but just had to wait in between for our food. Our waiter was pleasant but seemed "busy". I would return for a special occasion."

  • "This was our first visit to the Capital Grille and we can give them the highest rating for every category. The food was great and our server- Anabella- couldn't have been more helpful. She deserves a gold star herself. Would highly recommend this dining experience to any one seeking an upscale dining experience. We look forward to our next visit!"

    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "went for Houston Restaurant Week menu and found that the prices on the menu were not as advertised on the HRW website. Website advertised a bone in 14oz kona crusted sirloin for $45, at restaurant it was not offered but switched to $10 additional for 18oz. or regular 14 oz sirloin not kona crusted for same price as the kona crusted was advertised at. Asked server about the discrepancy before ordering but he didn't know anything. Ordered it anyway and called manager next day and after an attempt at some meek excuse was kind enough to refund the difference. Appetizers---Clam Chowder was ordinary and was served barely warm, Caeser Salad was very bland and not very good. Steaks were cooked as ordered and very good, green beans good & crunchy"

    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "This has become my favorite steak house. The food is wonderful and the service is flawless. It surpasses the many other high end steak houses in town in my book. They also have an excellent lunch menu that is much less expensive than dinner."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Went to the Capital Grille for the first time on the Houston Restaurant Weeks special. We had the filet minon and the salmon. Both were outstanding. The small portion deserts (for HRW) were perfect - Key Lime pie and the shortcake. Our waiter, Kevin, was very nice."

  • "Went with a group of friends to check out the "generous pour" wine tasting - 7 wines for $25! Excellent wines, very generous pours, and our waiter even offered more of any of the wines we really liked. The atmosphere was relaxed, the service was great and the food was absolutely delicious. We'll definitely go again... soon!"

  • "Went for lunch during Houston Restaurant Week. Menu offered three courses. Soup or salad, entree, dessert. Good selection for $20. Great restaurant for after shopping, date night, or business meeting, in City Centre."

  • "Perfect food and service outstanding. The staff earn a pay raise that day"
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "We selected the restaurant week menu. The chowder was amazing, unfortunately it all stopped from there. We were all delivered the wrong steaks, we were on a tight deadline so we didn't complain but it was very disappointing, they didn't even ask us who was having which steaks. The reason it wasn't too apparent was that they were all cooked similarly despite having 5 different requests! The key line dessert was bland. I would not hurry back."

  • "My fiancé and I dined for lunch. We had great service and wonderful eats! We will be back soon."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "Very small steak portion (definitely not 10oz as they said on the menu) and the steak was cold."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "Both the food and service were at best fair. We thought the quality would be the same as the Galleria location, but that assumption proved very false. The meat was cooked not to order and burned on one side, bread came just before desert and the service was inferior for a restaurant of that star level. We won't ever go back nor send clients there. Dismal."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Had a little difficulty getting the car parked: too many people in line. The reception was friendly and helpful, The wait service was the best and the food was well presented. My steak and lobster was as good as any. The deserts were the right size. We will be back!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "This is pretty expensive for the portion/type of food. The meat dishes were very tender although they could have been a little more seasoned. The dessert was only two bites but looked good on the plate. WE were surprised that only three vegetables were on the menu and no appetizers. The bread was terrific. Not a good value for the price."

  • "I went for dinner and hand a wonderful time. Food was very good along with excellent service."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "Throughout the years of Houston Restaurant Weeks, I have seen almost every fine dining restaurant reduce their quality of service during this event, but Capital Grille always manages to live up to their reputation. I was celebrating a birthday and I counted a total of 5 different staff members that told me happy birthday throughout my dining experience. The table was decorated with a personalized card and the dessert came out with a candle and "Happy Birthday." The food was cooked to perfection and portion sizes were very good considering I ordered off the restaurant week menu. Service was perfect!"
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "I usually frequent a very few select restaurants. Capital Grill became in City Centre impressed me so much my first visit I got a wine locker. Great food, excellent service and a phenomenal wine list. Their GM Daniel and Head Chef Todd do a wonderful job to create a memorable evening. Ask for our favorite waiter Vladamir."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "great steaks. Unfortunately my steak was not that. The outer layer of my medium well steak was completely charred and burnt. It was inedible. I love capital grille but this was my first negative food experience."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "Can add the The Capital Grille City Centre location as a premier business lunch dining experience."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "I have been to many Capitol Grille, including the original in Providence, RI. My husband and I were pleasantly surprised to a memorable experience. Jarrett was an exceptional wait staff; the best anywhere in a LONG time. The food was piping hot when it came to the table. We will be back many times!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "The food was delicious. But was pretty agitated that I made reservations and I am a Insider Member. That the table offered to me was a table situated in high traffic. I specifically ask a for a quite table, I could have sat in side room across from the host. Instead my table was not ready and I had to wait 20 minutes to be seated."

  • "We had a nice evening and the food was great. The service was ok"
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "My husband and I went to try this place out for Houston restaurant week/month to avoid the possible disappointment of paying a high price for mediocre food. We tried to play it safe but I must say, the regular menu price is worth every penny. I can't stress enough the esquisite quality and taste of the food fRom appetizer to dessert; the same goes for the service. Can't wait to go back and try something else on the menu. Be open minded when your waiter's recommendations. He suggested the peppercorn with a chardonnay sauce for my dry-aged sirloin steak and a oscar type sauce my husband's citrus glazed salmon (oh, it was to die for). Also, they offer free valet, which is a plus considering how busy city centre can get."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "My wife and I went for restaurant week and had a great meal and value. We both upgraded our options, nice that it was offered, and both steaks were specialties, desserts were smaller portions, which we prefer, and wine pairings suggested by the waiter were successful. Nice job."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "My husband and I had the steak and it was fabulous. The service was impeccable our waiter Jarrett made the evening. We will definitely be back."

  • "Our dinner reservation was for 7 pm. We met our friends in the bar at 6:30 pm for a cocktail. It was over 20 minutes before we had a drink in front of us. It took 10 minutes before anyone even acknowledged our presence. Our server at the table was good, but the food was average at best. The tenderloin was not tender at all. There are too many good steakhouses in Houston to be served a poor steak."
