“Yep... This where you want to be"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Ahhh... When it comes to steak and seafood, Capital Grille does is right! I love everything about this place. From the rich food to the high class ambiance, just walking into this restaurant makes you feel like somebody important! I don't know if this is some place I would take a lady on a first date because of great elegance but if you want to impress somebody, this is a place that I'd take them (especially with Valentines Day coming up...). Definitely a place I would bring my wife for an anniversary or a Girlfriend for a proposal... easily!

I brought my lady here for Valentines Day and of course they hooked her up with a goody bag full of chocolates, they gave her a rose, and a complimentary drink... She really felt special and it made her day!

“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?
