Excellent food and experience

Visited the Grille twice in August for Houston Restaurants weeks. The food was excellent. Had their bone-in rib-eye this trip and it was wonderful--cooked exactly as ordered. We also did the generous pour wine event. The service was great--Terry is the best. Can't wait for the next visit.

What a wonderful dining experience my husband and I had last night! Our service, Joe, was wonderful! We ordered cocktails first. Hubs got the Stoli Doli (I think that's the name), which was vodka and pineapple juice. I tried some of it and it was good but I'm just not a fan of sweet martinis. I ordered the Adults Only...

We ate Dinner three nights at the Capital Grille. It was located across the street from the Hilton. Service was excellent. The food was excellent. We were able to be seated without a reservation.

Celebrated daughter's and sister-in-law's birthdays. The steaks were superb as always. Great selection and good portion of sides. Leave room for their desserts. Reservation is a must.

This is a classic place. You feel like you are back in old Texas. Food is very good, service is great, wine list will give you all you might wish. Location is nice as well: very close to Galleria and multiple hotels around.

Dined here for the first time as a part of Houston Restaurat Weeks and food was just ok. Bread, clam chowder, salmon and the espresso dessert were good while the wedge salad, bone in strip, sides and creme brûlée was subpar compared to peer restaurants in town. We may give it another try and eat off the main menu, but... More

Chose Capital Grille because spouse spoke highly of the one he had visited before. Went to celebrate 35th anniversary and they really went all the way to make it a fantastic evening. When we arrived, the table was decorated with rose petals, red heart table sprinkles and a red rose. Complimentary glasses of champagne to start, best Lobster Bisque-smooth, silky... More

Having been lucky to sample a few different steak houses recently I thought this place but was good but not great. Pleasant atmosphere and good service.

Went for a girls weekend in celebration of our friend's engagement. We had to change our reservation time a couple times, and they were very accommodating. The food was excellent, waiter attentive but not intrusive. I do find Pappas Bros and Flemings to be better, but still good! Would return.
