Appetizers and dessert were great, but steaks fell flat. Filet had a game taste to it and strip feature was not very flavor full. Wait staff was great.

The food was delicious. We chose to not drink because it felt the wine was overpriced, which I know is standard for restaurants but this felt more overpriced than standard. The noise level was very loud for what you would expect to be a quiet, romantic dinner. The service was fine. Nothing terrible but nothing above and beyond. We may go back there but probably not for a special occasion. Too loud to have a nice talk during dinner.

Capital Grille is, from top to bottom, start to finish...is without question a premier destination for fine dining in Houston. We have been to both locations, this time CityCentre. The staff is professional and courteous. The servers, in particular, are obviously professionals and understand what great service is all about. Our food was exceptional. We live in Cypress, and this location is so convenient. Looking forward to returning soon.

Service was phenomenal. Greeted with an open door, sat quickly, after having my valet stamped to make sure it’s free. Quickly greeted by Zack as my table server. Zack is a wonderful server, with much experience and a great personality as well. He quickly helped us choose a wine for my husband, and a nice non-alcoholic cocktail for me, since I’m 32 weeks pregnant.
Zack then was available and ready to take our appetizer order, and then our entree order.

My husband ordered the amazing dry aged porterhouse with king crab added. I ordered the Maine lobster broiled, with the shell cracked and meat pulled for me. We also ordered sams mashed potatoes, and tried a small order of the Brussel sprouts.
Our lobster crab cake appetizer was sooooo good. I try crab cakes EVERYWHERE I go, and no seafood place or other has had one that compares to this one. Delicious.

The lobster was wonderful, but the tail was a little overcooked and really hard to chew. As the manager came by to check on our dishes, I let him know about the tail portion being difficult to eat, so he immediately apologized and sent for me to have some extra butter poached tails sent to me. The new rails were AMAZING and perfectly cooked. The mashed potatoes were amazing, as were the Brussel sprouts with bacon, wow, who would think Brussel sprouts would be so good! My husband loved the porterhouse and king crab as well.
Dessert was creme brûlée and the brûlée’d cheesecake. Both amazing dishes. Zack has our leftovers boxed up, as well as including a dessert trio for my kiddos at home, on the house.

There are many great servers at capital grille, but I highly recommend requesting Zack on your visit!

Went the night before Valentine’s hoping to miss the crowd. Restaurant was pretty full but the staff seemed to manage it pretty well.
As always the food was fantastic. Had lobster bisque as a starter and it was delicious. Ordered the porcini rubbed bone in ribeye with balsamic vinegar. It is / has always been my favorite and did not let me down this time either. Very tasty and cooked to perfection.
We will be going back.

Booked thru website specifically requesting quieter table for date night. Got table right on main hallway, then moved next to party of 20+ loud partiers. Really, guys? That’s where you seat customers in dates? Finally moved AGAIN to quiet section of restaurant where they should have seated us initially. Food and service was great but ambiance was below par because of our table hopping experience.

Lunch with friends. Great menu selection and complimentary valet. Lobster was tasty, especially the lobster rolls. Service was perfect and adaptive to our leisurely meal but I noticed there is 45 minute lunch availability when requested. Decor a bit dark for a ladies lunch but the guys probably think it is perfect. We will definitely return! Amazing menu! I am glad I picked Capital Grille City Centre and easily booked our table on Open Table.

My steak was pretty over cooked. I would recommend ordering one or two levels below what you normally like. We also ordered the lobster Mac and Cheese and half the pasta was too hard to enjoy. Other than that, staff seemed knowledgeable and eager to make sure we were taken care of.

Prob one of my favorite restaurants. Eat there at least once a week. Staff is great from managers to our usual waitress Olesia and Jesus, assistant to the waiters. They all quickly caught on to where we like to sit to even which bread we like the most. They are great!! Food is great too. Chef is accommodating to my requests.

We went to celebrate our anniversary. Lee, our waiter was outstanding. His recommendations were spot on and his entire demeanor was attentive and yet not overbearing. The food was very good, I had the seared tuna on Lee’s recommendation and it was superb. They had our table ready for us and even had a special touch knowing we were celebrating our anniversary.

Xmas eve

Food & drink Service was spotty - slow to take orders & slow to deliver food was just ok -not good or great

Throughout the evening tables were being moved from one part of the dining room to another. Some lifted and carried by multiple people some rolled around in the side.

I have eaten at many Capital Grille and have always loved them. Last night the food was....meh. The first bottle of wine we ordered had spoiled. Our server recommended a different one and it was wonderful. The lobster mac and cheese was excellent as always. I got a NY strip that was good but not great. I wanted it cooked black and blue (seared on the outside and very rare on the inside). It was cooked medium rare which is OK but not what I ordered. My date got the roasted swordfish...again good but not great...and very tough. I was talking to some neighbors after dinner and the had similar things to say about the food on a recent dining experience they had. For $150 per person I expect better food than this. We are residents in CityCentre and all go out a lot. It was Christmas Eve, but The Capital Grille should be prepared to handle the extra crowd. I'll try TCG again someday...but with so many other excellent restaurants within a three minute walk, it won't be any time soon.

So VERY disappointed. They were OBVIOUSLY NOT ready for Christmas Eve. We arrived at 6:30p and were seated promptly. Place was PACKED and tables crammed. I quit counting how many times a waiter had to scoot by our table sideways 🙄 just to get by. So uncomfortable to say the least.

My husbands Hendrix on ice was very watered down. No bread was offered even after we asked for it. We never saw our waiter (Roberto) for quite a while so we literally grabbed another (Jeff) to place our order. We ordered the rib eye medium and it came well done, room temperature and TOUGH!!! French onion soup while yummy was served room temperature.

First time and LAST TIME we will dine there. We've always dine at Perry's in Katy on Chistmas Eve and have NEVER been disappointed. This year we opted to try this place. Was so looking forward to a pleasant Christmas Eve dining experience and was so very disappointed.

I've used Open Table for years and this is the first really negative review I've had to write. Considering the price we paid to have such a lousy experience - especially on Christmas Eve - I just had to write this review.
