We've been to The Capital Grille in Houston, TX many times and have had very positive experiences. The food, atmosphere and service are top notch. The prices are above average but you get what you pay for. They also have a good bar that's quiet enough to hear others at your table and good bar food too. Only once did... More

My husband and I went to celebrate Valentine's Day a week early. We hadn't been to Capital Grille so decided to give it a try. Our table wasn't ready, so we had drinks in the bar. When our table still wasn't ready in 15 minutes, the hostess offered us another drink. My husband took her up on the offer, and... More

Bravo! They get everything right! Service and Food. It's worth every bit money. Nothing compares to the Porcini Rubbed Delmonico with 15-Year Aged Balsamic their signature steak, prepared with delicate porcini mushroom crust. Our anniversary was in December and we waited a month due to schedules to celebrate. They remembered. EXCELLENT! The best Lemon Drop Martini. I prefer not to... More

Took my mom here for her birthday. She loved her steak and lobster. I got the steak and it was really good. The service here is second to none. The food I think was really good, just not up to the five star level. The ambiance in the restaurant is great. They have a nice bar and wonderful lighting throughout... More

About four years ago we dined at this Capital Grille and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. This visit was equally enjoyable. The food, service, and ambiance were outstanding, as we have come to expect when visiting a Capital Grille, regardless of the city. My wife had the Lobster Bisque with Sherry followed by Seared Sea Bass and Sautéed Spinach. I had... More

Was invited here for a Christmas office party. I arrived early, so I went to the bar to order a drink while I waited for others to arrive. The bar area was quite ho-hum and not inviting as it overlooked the entryway and reception/waiting area. There were a few tables and chairs near the side of the bar, but it... More

As you might already know there are many great choices for dining at City Centre, Service and food were excellent. Will go back again when we are in the area.
