Food was excellent, but service was lacking. Our table was direct in front of the waiter entrance to the kitchen, and we still had bad service .

The kitchen service was a little uneven, steaks underdone, sides delivered late. Had to wait on wine order, first bottle of red was off.
Still love Capital Grill & will give them another chance.

Although everyone's steaks were great, the evening would have been wonderful except for a couple of things.
We ordered a 2nd bottle of wine and it did not show up, plus we asked for a dessert menu and it did not show up. Therefore, the restaurant probably lost close to another $100 because of this.

I took my son for his 22nd birthday along with my wife and daughter. The service was excellent. The cocktails were really good. The steaks were cooked to perfection and tasted wonderful. They even brought my son a birthday dessert. It was a fun night with the family.

Food was great. We got a table that seemed to be in higher traffic area and for 5 not 3. Service was good just slow and it did not look that busy but hey we were focused on our table. There was also a loud table next to us
We like the ambiance but expected more at these prices

Upon entering the restaurant, the hostess mentioned my name before I even said the name of the reservation (it's great to feel like a VIP from the very start :)). This was a business lunch with 3 associates and we each had steak (of course) - all beautifully prepared. The chef was definitely on his game as I had that perfect hot, pink center, while the other 3 steaks expressed notes of a slightly more "rustic" temperature. Nothing was left at the end of our lunch, so judge for yourself how we enjoyed them. Service was great and the GM, Chris, popped by our table for a quick chat to confirm we were well cared for. Awesome experience!

As usual, the service was impeccable. I felt special from the time I walked in the door. By the time you get to your table, the smells of delicious food have gotten your total attention. The menu is surprisingly varied. Had grilled jumbo shrimp over parmesan risotto with butternut squash - outstanding!!

We usually enjoy Capital Grille City Centre Houston when the weather is nice, the outdoor patio works perfectly. The food is always great along with the service. Tonight was a different story, the meat that I ordered was rare instead of med rare, it was so gristly I had about 5 bits from different areas and I could not eat it at all. The waitress could not be found, ask another waitperson to find our waitress, when that didn't work I had to go to the front and ask for the manager. The manager took my meat off the meal. I felt as though I should have been comped more. This is an upscale restaurant, in an upscale area which means I am paying upscale prices. This place will go on the bottom of a long list of wonderful restaurants in Houston. If the manager would have just comped the glass of wine I ordered when he asked if he could get me anything else after the incident (which I thought he would do) I would have been back soon! So the long and the short of it is my husband and I went out to dinner, I did not get to eat, but we got to pay for his meal and several glasses of wine and some beers. The customers should not get the short end of the stick!!!

We were welcomed back to Capital Grille after a less than impressive last visit. This time was simply amazing!! We were treated like royalty by our waiter, John Petrillo. The manager came by to make sure everything was going well and even the Executive Chef stopped by to welcome us and invite us to even order off the menu if we desired. But I have to say really John made sure everything was perfect for us. We had a wonderful evening with good friends, fabulous food and impeccable service. I tried the crabmeat topped swordfish this time and it was to die for! I would definitely recommend it. Looking forward to our next visit!

Steak was disappointing for price. Manage excellent and took the two steaks off the bill. Can’t compete with Taste of Texas, Eddie V and Fleming’s all within walking distance. Overpriced for what you get. Meal served very choppy. Had to ask for tea refill. Don’t expect that for a 300.00 dining experience.

The food was good as always, the problem was it took an hour to get to our table! We were a party of three there for a business lunch. Our order was very simple...two cheeseburgers and the steak salad which was the special. Not sure why it took that long, but that’s unacceptable, especially for lunch where most people are on a time schedule. Fortunately we ordered soups for appetizers which came out promptly.
