  • "We celebrated my husband's birthday dinner while visiting Houston to see family. My husband had the 24oz aged Porterhouse steak and I had the halibut entree. We complimented our entrees with sautéed spinach, baked potato, and mushrooms….yum yum! The restaurant made my husband feel special with the quality level of service, starting with the birthday confetti sprinkled on our table before we arrived and providing a special complimentary dessert to my husband, which we both shared. Overall, we had a first rate experience!"

  • "Notably consistent, cozy atmosphere, however the recommended porterhouse was not worth the $50. Very fatty. Next time we will stick with the filet mignon."

  • "We enjoyed dinner at the Capital Grille. Food was outstanding, and the service was excellent. The only slight drawback was that the beverage service took a bit too long for what you would expect at this type of restaurant, but that's minor. We would definitely go back!"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "The Capital Grille is a great restaurant. Everything was perfectly cooked to order. Verty quiet, with a great selection of wines and spirits. Ask for Jay when you go in, he will not disappoint. "

  • "Capital Grille is now on our list of favorites, replacing another well-known steak restaurant just a block away where we recently had a very disappointing evening and meal, and will not return to. On the contrary, the service, food, noise level, and ambience at the Capital Grille were all superb. We enjoyed great recommendations from our waiter, both steak and fish, plus sides and dessert. Definitely a repeater!"

    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "Everything excellent except... Entrees came out right on top of the salads, which is a pet peeve, especially given the special occasion nature and desire to relax & enjoy theme of Saturday night. The price point for this restaurant requires timing!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "This was our first time at the Houston location and we were not disappointed. This was our 4th location to visit and they all have had the same great feeling. The food is always outstanding, the service is thoughtful and courteous, overall just a great place to dine."

  • "Came here for our anniversary! Great food, even better service. Highly recommend!"

  • "The food was very good. I had the Delmonico ribeye steak. The flavor was excellent. The cut of meat could have been better. It was very thin a really did not have the feel of a ribeye steak. The Ceasar salad was acceptable but could have been a little more flavorful. It was also a little small. I ordered the Belle Glos Pinot. It was Las Alturas. It would be good to add the Clark & Telephone which is even better for Belle Glos. In general the service was very good. The waiter explained the food selection very well and answered all questions. He seemed very knowledgable about the way the food is prepared. He did forget the wine until reminded. No real problems. We enjoyed the experience and were taken care of throughout the evening."

  • "This place is a must for all of our special occasions. The staff take great care of your every need. It is a bit pricey, but well worth it. If you let them know ahead of time, they always have something special to offer at any occasion."

  • "Dinner was excellent. The appetizers were great lobster/crab cakes and steak tartar was meal by themselves. the Steak was cooked and seasoned to perfection. The evening was made very special by attentive staff and everyone was so friendly."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "Food was very good but service was terrible. After being seated it took over 10 minutes to have someone asking for a drink order. Actually the server was having a long conversation about the Houston rodeo with someone on a nearby table. Aware of our presence and still neglecting us. It was rude and offensive. If i am willing to pay a top dollar bill in a pricy restaurant I definitely expect exceptional and immediate service. If I was at McDonald's i'll be happy to wait in line. But when I am willing to pay a bill over $100 per person then the waiter should "wait" on customers, not customers on the waiter. Have had much better service at Denny's Not Coming back."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "The food was everything as expected, Todd our server was the best and the atmosphere was very classy. I highly reccomend Capital Grille to anyone looking for a 1st class dining experience!!!"

  • "My wife and I went to Capital Grill for a romantic get-a-way and celebrate our special occasion. The reception and bar staff were welcoming and ready for us at arrival. The bar offered the house drink, Soli-Dole, Pineapple Martini to my wife. We both had one martini at the bar before going to the table for dinner. The waiter was knowledgeable and engaging and yet not too pushy. He offered just the right amount of food to share so we did not over order. We are wine enthusiast and found the wine menu comprehensive. The waiter was highly knowledgeable and able to provide context and character descriptions to the wines we were considering. The wine we selected was excellent and the whole evening was a success."

  • "Food in Capital Grille is amazing!! no wonder there! I still have dreams with their wonderful mac-n-cheese... you HAVE to taste it! Not only was the food cooked to perfection but the service is excellent! We went for Valentine's day dinner - which you have to reserve well in advance- and they gave us a complementary champagne glass, a flower and chocolate! the ambiance is romantic already, this just gave it a wow factor!!"

  • "We went to the Captial Grille for the first time on 2/21/14. I loved the food, loved the wine. The service was OUTSTANDING! We ate at another local steakhouse the following night, and even though the food was comparable. I would still say our Capital Grille experience, was by far the best we had in Houston! I highly recommend it. Also if you can ask for Jean to be your server. You will not be disappointed!"

    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "The service was wonderful, our waiter knew exactly when to be there and was very attentive. I hesitated on giving 5 stars for the food only because I had to send my dish back in order to cook the entrée just a little longer as it came out rare instead of the medium rare I ordered. When my dish came back to me-it was absolutely wonderful. The wine recommendation from the waiter was fantastic-his recommendation really was top notch. We were very lucky to have gotten the table. I definitely would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is ready to have a great meal with great service and a nice bottle of wine!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The service was top notch although they weren't ready for us when we arrived for our reservation. The food was not a good as we expected. I know they are known for steaks but we chose seafood and it was very bland. We had to put salt and pepper on it to eat at least half. The lobster bisque was great. The mojito I had was ok, I've had better. I should have ordered wine like always. The dessert was ok. Somewhat of a makeup to the meal. If we return, we'll have the steak I guess."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We came to The Capital Grill for a romantic night out. We were pleasantly surprised with everything from the staff to the menu. Everything was perfect & we didn't feel the chaotic madness that surrounds Valentine's Day. Food was cooked to perfection & wasn't a reflection of a rushed, busy kitchen that I've come to expect from venturing out on Valentine's. I will definitely go back!"
