“High class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Great food, not cheap. Long standing tradition for fine quality. Lots of people use this restaurant as a meeting place so you may see a lot of important people. The food and service is very good.

“Excellent food and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Marinated Rib-Eye is the best in Houston! Lobster Mac-n-Cheese is the perfect complement! I've been to steak lover for decades and Captial Grille is one of the best around!

“Over the top!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

The Capital Grille consistently has delicious food, attentive service, and a relaxed yet sophisticated atmosphere. The steaks are by far the best of any steakhouse in Houston. They are mouth watering and perfectly cooked. Remington-type bronze statues used in the decor add to the Western atmosphere. The servers are always available to give suggestions when needed. A perfect place to take an out of town guest who wants to experience some genuine Texas hospitality!

“Consistently excellent steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Have been to Capital Grille a few times, mostly for special occasions (birthday, son's high school graduation party) but went last Friday with the wife just for fun.

The Steaks were great, as usual, and the dessert was a monstrous hunk of delicious chocolate hazelnut cake. We ate it for days.

Fabulous food and professional service--what's not to like?
