Miguel was one of the best servers that we have ever had at any restaurant that we have dined at. We had our 3yr old with us and he went above and beyond expectations.

CG is one of my go-to steak restaurants, along with Mastros and Del Frisco’s Double Edge.....Typically, I give CG the highest rating possible. This time, I still give it high ratings only for the food....Service was less than the usual impeccable....No recognition or acknowledgment from the manager. They tried to sit me in the bar because I was dining alone, I suppose. I insisted on being seated in the main dining room...It was 6 pm and the restaurant was not busy...So I was seared next to the service area where it was noisy and busy. The waiter was busy with a group in the private room so I was an afterthought. Did nit feel particularly welcomed on this particular visit. Not a pleasant experience on a $300 F&B tab for one person. BUT—-will keep CG in my top tier steak restaurants....Been to several in various states. First time disappointed.

I don’t recommend this restaurant for an intimate birthday dinner. I booked reservations a month in advance. We were seated right at the front door. Even though there were other tables available. I also specified that we were celebrating a birthday when I booked the reservation. No accommodations were made at all. No acknowledgment of the celebration at all. The food was great. However; If you’re celebrating a special occasion I strongly recommend dining elsewhere.

A+ for service! We celebrated our anniversary there last Friday. Our table was decorated with roses and they wrote us a card. We ordered their wagyu burgers and paired with wine. They gave us 2 complimentary dessert. All REALLY yummy! Then they took our picture and printed it out for us to take home. Just so thoughtful on top of amazing food! How could you not love them!!!

The best steaks in Houston! The service was exceptional! We tried the Shrimp Cocktail as an appetizer vs the lump crab cake. It was fabulous! Our favorite place for ALL celebrations. The lemon drop martini was a little sour, but overall and excellent experience.

What a lovely venue! I like it better than the City Centre location! We had a party of six for Houston Restaurant Weeks. Our server Tony was terrific, and he was gracious enough to take our group picture.
Three of us had the filet mignon, one had the NY strip and two had the salmon. All were cooked to perfection and the service was impeccable. Splitting up the check for 3 couples was no issue, for which we were grateful. And we had no problem conversing around the table - it was quiet, even with the close proximity of other tables and booths. We will definitely be back to this location!

Really liked this place. This place should definitely have a dress code though. It really bothers me when I get dressed up to go somewhere nice and the guy at the table next to me is wearing a T-shirt and shorts. This is a business casual place at the least, not a sports bar. People need to have some class. Service was excellent. The crab cakes were amazing! The scallops were all right. The filet mignon was good but just a tad bit over cooked but not bad. The Brussel sprouts were delicious as well as the truffle fries. The Black tie margarita was absolutely perfect. Anytime I order a margarita it’s always way too sweet but this one was PERFECT. Will definitely come back.

When we go to a restaurant for steak, Capital Grill is always our first choice, especially when bringing guests. The food is always fabulous and cooked to perfection. We had our same server who anticipates exactly what we need and we never have to ask for anything throughout the meal. The service is impeccable, showing well trained leadership. We would HIGHLY recommend Capital Grill for a fine dining experience.

We were celebrating my mother in law's birthday and took advantage of restaurant week. The staff decorated the table and had a Birthday card for her, which was so nice. The service was outstanding and our waiter was friendly, attentive and caring. Out waiter heard me comment about how good the bacon was in my husband's wedge salad and brought out a plate of it for us all to enjoy. They even brought out a glass of champagne for everyone to enjoy with our dessert. It was truly a wonderful experience.
