We have eaten at several capital grille locations, and are always pleased with the food and service. Because September is restaurant month in Orlando, the price for a steak, side, salad, and dessert was only $33.00. Great dinner, great price, and David gave us excellent service.

I was in Houston for a business conference and we ate at the Capital Grille twice. The first night, dinner for 8 people was great. Everyone found something on the menu they liked. I tried an avacado/crab/apple salad, which was great! The next night, we had private dining in their Wine Room. I had organized this the week before, and... More

My husband is a genius; for our 8th anniversary, he made reservations for dinner at Capital Grille. While I expected a perfunctory "happy anniversary", I had No idea how wonderfully these people do a special occasion! We were greeted by the lovely hostess, who gave us her best wishes for our special day. She led us to a perfect banquette... More

Had dinner there recently with a few business associates. Food was good overall but not exceptional. Enjoyed my steak tartare immensely but my filet mignon was a little disappointing. What stood out was the service which was of the highest standard. Good place for serious business discussions though it would have been better if they had offered a torch for... More

The Capital Grill is a typical high-end steak house. The food was very good, although not exceptional. (We took advantage of the restaurant week fixed price menu: salad, steak, and desert for $45.) The wine selection was extensive but expensive. The service was excellent. Valet parking was available but not required. We arrived at 6PM on a Sunday evening, and... More

Restaurant week is a big deal in Houston. It's a chance to enjoy some chef specialities not only at a reduced rate, but also some of the purchase price goes to our local food bank. So I chose The Capital Grill. Upon arrival I noticed the bar was well attended by a number of patrons. Well dressed reception took us... More

My husband and I have been here twice in the past month. Both times the service was some of the best we have had. The food was all excellent. We will go back soon.

Located near the galleria mall this is a very good high end restaurant. As soon as you walk in you can see personal wine cellars for locals (some local guy named bush) so you know this isn't a cheap place.

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.
