We love the Capital Grill and have been our place to go for years. Yesterday we got to sit next to a big party and the guest just kept moving around us all the time making it very uncomfortable for us. The restaurant should have acknowledged this from the start and accommodate their other guests accordingly.

Since we were staying at the hotel next door, we decided to visit and have a drink or two at the bar. The bartender, Paige, talked us into trying the Stoli Doli which is unique to The Capital Grille. I have never been a fan of martini's but this drink is a game changer and now found a martini that I will gladly drink! We ended up splitting the signature cheeseburger and it was incredible - especially the candied bacon. The next night we decided to come back for a birthday dinner and all the food was absolutely fantastic and the service impeccable. We are now devoted fans of The Capital Grille!

Sunday evening is great here! Not too crowded but plenty of folks so you do not feel all alone. Had four guests and everyone loved their food. Server was attentive but did not hover. Gracious greeting by hostess and thank you from everyone as we left including the valet. Great atmosphere!

One of my guests ordered the special king crab legs and they were very fishy....just not fresh. He is very shy, and did not want to complain, because we had a large group at the table. Otherwise all others had a great meal.

Our waiter was amazing. We went on a Sunday night when the Astros were playing in a post season game, so it was quiet. This gave us the opportunity to talk and to have excellent service. Capital Grille is a solid staple in our neighborhood and we always enjoy eating here.

We dined for my 50th birthday and everything was perfect from the drinks at the bar to the special attention in the dining room. We had crab cocktail, my husband had red snapper and I had a small filet and crab cake. The food and wine were perfection!!! Our server was outstanding. We have dined here numerous times and they never disappoint!!!
