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.

My wife and I went for a late lunch on a Tuesday afternoon. We both ordered the cup of clam chowder, the signature cheese burger and cheese cake for desert, on the luncheon special, for $20.00. The chowder was as great as usual, but the real surprise was the cheese burger - it was likely the best burger that either one of has ever had. The blend of three meats creates a real taste sensation much greater than the prime quality burger that most up-scale restaurants offer.

We arrived at 8:00 pm for 8:30 dinner reservations, but we were directed to the bar and not sat until after 9. Not enough space to accommodate everyone in the bar waiting for tables and a shortage of staff to accommodate the guest. When our waitress finally arrived, she was sweet, apologetic and accommodating. It was a bit chaotic and understaffed. Once seated, Food was served promptly, warm and tasty. However, Service improvement needed overall.

Me and a friend went for Houston Restaurant Week. We both got the Bone In Dry Aged New York Strip for the second entree. I got mine Medium and she got medium well. When we got our steak she cut into hers and it was so bloody her plate was pink. She asked to cook it a little bit more and when she got it back it was dry. I ate around mine because the middle of my steak was so raw. I tried to eat it but the taste of raw meat and blood was just so strong I could only eat half my steak and I’m the type that doesn’t like to waste food. The mashed potatoes was like the instant mashed potatoes you buy in a box and mix with water. Worse steak I’ve ever had. Was really disappointed. First time eating there and left with a bad impression. Servers were nice. Maybe it was just that night. Who knows. But not coming back again.

Celebrating an anniversary during the annual Houston's Restaurant Weeks event is a great way to get more bang for your buck. Love having a set menu from which to choose and the quality of the meal is never compromised. Our waitstaff seemed a bit frazzled during the post-lunch hour and our bill was incorrect, but the food was wonderful. Overall, though, it was a positive outing!

I cooked a Filet from the grocery store that tasted better than the one I had here! One steak was served way too dry; they made it over but still, it wasn't very good. I didn't want to complain at the time becasue it was a celebration of our 29th anniversay: my wife's plate was served half way off the table; the servers ran out of space on the table and her plate was literally hanging off the table, almoste in her lap. He was in such a hurry he failed to notice the position the plate landed on the table (about in the center of the plate). I had to re-arrange the sides on the table top to get our plates in a position so that we could eat our food. As we ate our meal, we noticed that everything was way too salty for our taste. All around, it was not a pleasant dining experience. The staff was very friendly so we didn't want to make too big of a fuss at the restaurant.

I've been to the location at the Galleria and had a good experience so I thought I'd try this location because it's much closer to my home. I don't think I will be coming back ... not very impressed with my family's meal.

Horrible. I should have kept my reservation at Ruth Chris. I expected so much more I have had better service a Brazilian steakhouse. It was my 30th birthday and it was ruined. Everything started fine the down to hell it went from from multiple orders being sent back and forth because the cook couldn't get the temperature correct. To the service being extremely slow and horrible. We were there so long I guess the forgot to even do the birthday dessert that i was told they do. Honestly the food wasn't even that great. The drinks were delicious and the water guy alex I think his name was that was the only great thing about my evening there. Maybe it was this location I won't be back.
