I went here for my 52nd birthday celebration this year. We were seated promptly for our reservation. They had birthday confetti on the white tablecloth along with a birthday card signed by the staff. We were greeted with a smile by one of the best waiters on the planet who was very attentive to our every need and request. He... More

The food was very good but... I wouldn't say I was wowed. The restaurant contacted me after our visit to follow up on our visit and ask if... More

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

Capital Grill is a very nice restaurant located in the Galleria. Excellent steaks and the wait staff is always friendly and courteous. Alsop a great bar menu if you are not wanting to sit and dine for a full meal. I frequent this establishment.

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
