Had room service from their restaurant

I loved that the room service from the Aloft Hotel was from Capital Grille. The food came hot and fast! Probably faster than if I was actually in the restaurant. A great meal.

We have eaten at this restaurant numerous times and we have only been disappointed once. Their steaks are seasoned well, as well as their lobsters. There are two locations and we were pleasantly surprised when they opened up the 2nd location in City Centre. We have only eaten at that location once on my birthday and of course we were... More

The Capital Grille has been one of my son's favorites for a few years. He kept wanting me to try it, so 5 of us, plus my 3 month and 2 year old granddaughters, went to celebrate Mother's Day. It is pricey, but the food was excellent and the dining room was lovely. Service was impeccable but not stuffy, and... More

One of our favorite Houston restaurants for years is because it has excellent service and ease of the evening is gracious — even with no reservations and eating at the bar. When busy because of good acoustic quality here's not the problem of privacy, sound is absorbed and not a lot of background noise. Overall the menu is too complex... More

If you want steak, you can't go wrong at Capital Grill. In fact, you'd be hard put to order anything that wasn't excellent. The one time that my steak was cooked medium rare, rather than the rare, I'd ordered, Capital Grille immediately replaced the order with a steak, cooked perfectly and then, amazingly, didn't charge me. That's what I call... More

These guys really rolled out the red carpet. It was our first visit. When I made the reservation I told them that we were celebrating a friends birthday. We were greeted immediately upon entrance into the restaurant and shown to our table. The table had been decorated. We were given quite a few freebies (including a champagne toast!). The food...
