On a date night with husband. Background: We are huge steak fans and try every top steakhouse we can when traveling. We are open to local styles etc... Like to try new things. Recently had a terrible experience with a Pittsburg style filet at another establishment. We had never had it and could not believe how retched they were. Our... More

In Houston for a business trip and stayed next door at the Double Trees Hilton. Decided to come here for a casual dinner meal and was not disappointed! The quality of the steak is very good (as was the buttered lobster tails which accompanied it!). Service provided by the attentive staff was also top notch.

Had a wonderfull dinner there - great meat and a very nice selection of wine. The waiters were very helpful when we wanted to change the table and during the whole dinner.

The Capital Grille is an upmarket steak house. You expect a good steak and you get one. The restaurant is a bit pretentious but no need to over dress. The volume of food is astounding. It is what I expect in America. Interestingly, the waiter will ask you if you want to add shrimp, lobster or crab on top of... More

The Capitol Grille is close to the Galleria mall in Houston and is a high-end but still charming place for a business or private dinner. As te name suggests, this is about meat, but they do offer a wide variety of dishes. If your a regular, you might have your private vine collection ready in designated lockers; George W. Bush...

I was fairly disappointed with this place. The food was not bad as such, but compared to price and the venue (it’s in Texas for crying out!), I had expected more. The waiter “forgot” to ask how I wanted my steak, so it arrived overcooked. Several of the sides we had ordered where cold when they arrived at our table... More

They have the world's best Lobster Mac & Cheese, and it's not kid's stuff. If you have never had it then do yourself a favor and order it, you can thank me later. We always order this dish then my wife and I split a Porchini-Rubbed Filet cooked medium rare for a side we go with their mashed-potatoes. Great wine... More
