We recently tried Capital Grille during Houston Restaurant Weeks. The wedge salad was very good. The steaks were very flavorful and cooked perfectly, with the added bonus of having potatoes and green beans included for the table. The cheesecake and espresso chocolate cake were also both very good.

Service was excellent, as was the ambiance.

We took advantage of the Generous Pour promotion being offered this month, which includes unlimited wine from seven available choices. What a deal -- HRW and the Generous Pour together! We will be back.

We always come here for our special occasions and enjoy it very much. It was our anniversary and was spoiled by one of the managers. My steak was very rare and I told the waiter. Doug was a very good waiter. A manager named John came out and proceeded to lecture me on the cook of the steak and that it was properly cooked. My husband was half finished with his meal at this point. After I asked this manager if he was going to stand there and argue with me all night he took my meal and replaced it. Another manager who was very gracious brought it out and it was fine. I have never had a manager in any restaurant treat a customer like that. The upset of the incident ruined the point of the evening. I think maybe we need to start looking for another favorite restaurant. Extremely disappointing.

A little disappointed. Some in my party we’re unhappy with the food quality. It was very noisy. Hard to speak or hear. The waiter was aloof. Just an order taker. I feel bad about my review but that’s how I feel.

HRW menu was great! The salad was fresh with delicious tomatoes, which is a rarity anywhere these days. The Parmesan dressing was nice and subtle. My friend loved the clam chowder. We both had roasted chicken, which was very moist and lightly seasoned with lemon and spices. The mixture of roasted white and purple baby potatoes was a perfect side. The flourless dark chocolate cake was creamy and not too rich. My friend loved the creme brûlée.

We always enjoy Capital Grille; especially when combining Houston Restaurant Weeks with Generous Pour. The servings are indeed "generous" and the value for both are exceptionally high; certainly considering the normal price points. I was a little taken back by the fact that for the first time, glasses were not changed with each new wine pouring. Glasses were reused for whites and rose, as well as for the reds. It wasn't a big deal, although classed down the experience from the many years that we have been participating.

We like going to Capital Grille during HRW because it is a great value combined with Generous Pour. Normally we have a wonderful experience and just recently went on a special occasion and Melissa was our waitress. She was very attentive, fun and engaging with our party of 3. Friday we were there with an 8 group, 4 couples who had not seen each other in awhile and were enjoying catching up. Claudia was our waitress and she was never engaged with our group, we felt rushed to order, was intent on going by the Generous Pour order despite some not liking white, etc. There were several other little things to make it a less experience than previous visits.

I felt the Capital Grille is an Eddie V's want to be. Very disappointed. Service was great when we got there at 6, but by 7 our waiter was pretty much non-existent. Caesar salad was really bland.

Overall a 2 stare for me, and back to Eddies!

Great food and great service as always. Tried a filet for the first time, a departure from my usual ribeye choices.
Our server, Melissa, was attentive and very helpful and polite.

We had a great birthday dinner. Reservation was at 5:30 while it was quite. The service was good and the food that we are all was very tasty. Overall a nice dining experience. Little bit more noisy at the bar and what not but, that’s to be expected in the bar area.

Excellent service and food - we recently celebrated our anniversary and had a great experience. We enjoyed the sea bass and salmon as well as the soy glazed brussel sprouts. The pear salad offered a lively mix of flavors and the warm double chocolate cake was just the perfect way to finish the night and was complimentary for our anniversary 🙂

Wonderful meal and service! We had tuna tartare and crab cocktail for starters and the filet special with the onions and mushrooms. Everything was very tasty, but our waiter Douglas made the evening a true dining experience. He told us a lot about the menu and wines, was attentive and friendly. When we return will will definitely ask for him!

Everything was perfect, we will definitely dine here again.

Everything was amazing. Our waiter was great. A mistake was made and they all sprung into action quickly, just because of tomato being added. They allowed the hubby to eat what he wanted of the salad until they fixed his new one. His Tomahawk beef steak, absolutely melt in your mouth good (I don't eat steak, but I had to try it). I had lobster crab cakes and lobster mac and cheese. The absolute best choice! And the assorted bread was a smart idea.

We had a nice dinner and the location is great. The original location has more of a personalized service and the The food quality is a better. Great location if you are dining with Kids. I prefer the original location.
