For a woman portions are huge. I usually get 4 oz filet so 10 oz is way to large. Would have a dessert if didn’t try to eat so much. Food was wonderful and will be back.

Fabulous experience. Miguel was great and both managers are so nice and attentive. We also love Paige and Susan. Food and drinks superb! Capital Grille is by far one of our favorite restaurants. Can’t wait to go back.

Great food, excellent service most visits.
The waitress missed my gift card and charged the full amount to my credit card without using the gift card and could not redo the charges so I was not able to use my gift card this visit. Quite upsetting considering the level of customer service the restaurant prides itself on.

Excellent service, excellent wine list and excellent steaks as always at this restaurant in the Galleria/Tanglewood area of Houston. Never feel rushed here, and the wine list has some hidden gems that are hard to find elsewhere. Sommelier and server were both excellent.
I love a good steak and have lived in Houston for over 30 years, and this is the best place in town for steak in my opinion.

Highly recommend the Capital Grille, food and service never disappoint. We had the smoked salmon for an appetizer and it was INCREDIBLE!! My husband ordered the 16 ounce Canadian lobster and I enjoyed the swordfish. Both were amazing!! Even though it was New Years Eve, we didn’t feel like we were being rushed. Best meal we’ve had dining out in a long time.

Great 3rd anniversary dinner! We loved how they greeted us with a happy anniversary when we first walked in. Loved how the table had a personalized card with a rose and hearts spread out on the table. Was really surprised by oir anniversary desert and champagne. We truly felt the love. Our waiter Miguel Sanchez was awesome and we will ask for his service when we return.

We went to celebrate a good friends birthday. Our waiter Tony was AMAZING, however the food not so good. We had to send the birthday boys steak back due to it being extremely undercooked. In addition, the roasted chicken was so dry even the manager mentioned it. Considering the meal was the main reason we chose this location and to not be satisfied was disappointing.

Took the restaurant 50 minutes to seat me so I had to eat at the bar. However, compensation was made economically through the bill. I guess I am satisfied!

Went for Thanksgiving dinner 2017. Food was great but the service was lacking. Waiter was not interested in giving us much service or attention when we did not order wine or cocktails. The reason we did not order wine or cocktails was that I just had heart surgery & was released from the hospital the day before Thanksgiving. No alcohol recommended as I was on new prescriptions. So, my family had a great deal to be thankful for on Thanksgiving, but the waiter didn't feel that we were worth the trouble. It was very disappointing as it was a very special occasion for my family. Wish the waiter had felt that way also!

We’ve only been to the Capital Grille in Denver. We stopped going there a few years ago because of a decline in food quality and service. We thought to give the Houston Galleria location a try for Thanksgiving and thought the Denver location was probably a fluke given the Capital Grille’s widespread success and high prices. But my husband and I both ordered steaks cooked medium. My filet was medium well and dry. My husband’s porterhouse was medium rare, at the most, to the point where he wouldn’t eat part of it. The fries, asparagus, and salad were all very mediocre. They were fine and we ate them, but it was a waste of ~$40. Additionally, the noise was rowdy, they sat us right next to the bathroom at a table where I couldn’t fit my purse next to me without squishing it, and the waiter was distant and not concerned with making the experience enjoyable. That said, it was Thanksgiving and I appreciate that I people were willing to work so I didn’t have to cook. We tipped over 25%. However, we’re not trying any Capital Grille again. There’s better options at this high of a price point.

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!!
