The Capital Grille - Houston Ratings and Reviews
Definitivamente, el mejor restaurante de carnes del mundo, su corte "Delmonico" es sensacional, tengo casi 20 años yendo por ese corte. Por cierto, le han cambiado el nombre a "Bone In Rib Eye"???
Su ubicación y ambiente son inmejorables!!
I've been to locations in Austin, Dallas, and Fort Worth, and Capital Grille has always delivered a high level of service and ambience. This was not my experience at the Houston Galleria location. The atmosphere was very different from other locations and the service, although very well mannered, started to disappear towards the latter part of my evening. My drink was completely empty for quite some time twice and at one point I had to get up myself to pour my date more water. Also, the booth seating was uncomfortable. I did tip 30% out of sympathy and would not recommend this location to friends. It's difficult to understand why this restaurant is a part of the Capital Grille family. This was my first and last trip to the Galleria location.
The food and service were impeccable. The waiter even took a nice picture which was printed out for all of us as a memento. Dessert was on the house with a nice "Happy Birthday" on the plate (it was my wife's birthday). The garlic shrimp appetizer are delicious. Steaks were great. Does not disappoint for a place of this caliber.
This is the 2nd time I've been to the Capital Grill with the first being at Town and Country. The service was so bad then I was given $200 in Gift Certificates.
The food was better this 2nd time at the Galleria Capital Grill, but the service was torturously slow. This was a Sunday night. Restaurant about 20% full. My party was 3 people. We went strait to the main dish, no appetizers. And it took 2 hours and 20 minutes for just the main dish and desert.
Manager nowhere to be seen until we were done and it was too late to do anything about the poor pace of service. I'd complain and ask for more Gift Certificates, but I will never go back to either Capital Grill again, even if it's free.
We made our reservations with out thinking about the October birthday next week. Capitol Grille called the day before to confirm our reservations and asked about any special occasion and I snapped to the birthday coming up. We were a party of 4 and they sat us in a cozy booth.
We shared the butternut squash soup, lobster & crab cakes and the shaved brussel sprout salad.
The soup was velvety in texture with just a hint of curry. Fantastic! The lobster and crab cakes had large chunks of lobster and came two per order. Good thing we had ordered two orders because they were a hit with all of us. Mildly seasoned with the tartar sauce on the side they
were very good. The brussel sprout salad was so good. Loaded with pecans and smoked bacon chucks and a small dollop of goat cheese the vinaigrette made this salad outstanding. The boys had the porcini rubbed bone-in rib eye. The flavor of the rub was fantastic with just a tad of cayenne and balsamic. I had the 10 oz. filet au poivre and it was fantastic, perfectly cooked with the pepper corns and a touch of cognac cream sauce. The other dish was pan-seared scallops with wild mushroom risotto. No complaints here , the scallops were huge and the risotto spot on. The staff gave the birthday boy a nice card and served us champagne for a toast. Fabulous evening!
As usual, the Capital Grille was a wonderful dining experience. The food was exceptional and the service was outstanding. Our waiter was very attentive; ensuring we always had what we needed. We were celebrating the purchase of a first home for one of the diners and they made the experience remeberable.
A few years ago my husband and I started making it a tradition to have his birthday here every year. I use to call and make the reservations until I found OT. The last two years were tough for us because we had a premie baby, but we started the tradition back up again this year and added friends to it. Capital Grille did NOT disappoint again! Always nice to know I don't have to worry about Birthday plans for my husband. His birthday is in August, during HRW, but we typically order from the regular menu. This year we tried it because our friends wanted to try it, and it was delish. Thank you for being so amazingly consistent! We will see you next year!
We hadn't been in years, but went for Restaurant Week. The RR Week menu choices were more than adequate, although the RR Week steak option was (as you'd suspect) on the small side. Good cocktails.
Great service, but they did switch the steak orders when they were served. I ended up with a medium instead of a medium rare (which my sister didn't notice and didn't mind until it was too late to switch them ourselves).
I've been a customer of the Galleria Capital Grill for around 15 years and have never had a bad meal or experience there. This occasion was for our anniversary and I must say it stands our as my best experience there and among my best dining experiences ever. The primary reason for my having that opinion (and for my posting this review - VERY uncharacteristic!) was our server - Susan Baudier. Susan was knowledgeable about all the food and wine selections offered, gave just the right amount of attention to us, and insured an all around enjoyable experience. I strongly suggest the next time you're selecting a restaurant, give the Galleria Capital Grill serious consideration. And when you're en route, call ahead and mention that you'd prefer that Susan be your server. I guarantee you will be grateful for my suggestion and will repeat the experience - I certainly will!
