After having an amazing dining experience in DC last spring at The Capital Grille, my son and I decided to visit the Houston Capital Grille. While it wasn't quite as fabulous as the Washington DC restaurant, we still had a lovely meal. The oysters were truly perfect: briny and fresh. The Caesar salad was good. I always am wowed with...

A colleague and I went to the Capital Grille on a Wednesday just before 7pm. We didn't have a reservation but got a table straight away. As usual in these places, the service was great throughout. I decided to go for a wedge salad followed by a fillet steak. I asked for the steak to be cooked medium and that... More

Our latest encounter with a Capital Grille - this time in Houston, Texas - proved to be another excellent dining experience. My wife had the butternut squash bisque followed by Chilean sea bass and grilled asparagus and I had the French onion soup followed by steak au poivre with potatoes au gratin. Both selections were wonderful, as was the ambiance... More

Over an over I have mentioned this to be one of the finer capital grills. How does one, a pauper I might add get a wine locker:?

I love the Capital Grille. I have been to 3 different ones in 1.5 weeks. This is a great place for personal, business and wine. I used if for all and it never disappoints. Classy and consistent every time! Staff was very good and made my lunch and learn event exceptional. The staff was extremely helpful from the moment I... More

The service was impeccable. Our waiter was Carl. He was excellent. He knew the menu forward and backwards. He gave us great suggestions and made our dining experience the best. They prepare our table with rose petals and hearts. Nice touch. They wedge salad is the best we have ever had. No competition. My filet mignon was so tender it... More

Went for our first visit to The Capital Grille as part of Restaurant Weeks benefiting the Houston Food Bank. I had always wanted to try this place out but for a family of 5 it always seemed too pricey. My husband and I went with friends as the Restaurant Weeks menu was to good to pass up. The food was...

Went knowing the price was high, so were expectations. Capital Grille did not disappoint. Server Susan was very helpful and cheerful. Ordered bone-in ribeye medium, turned out perfectly cooked, juicy, flavorful. Seasoning felt a little too strong, overwhelming close to the end though. Desserts were up to standards. Had a great experience here, would definitely recommend. 一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一一

Place is about a stuffy a crowd as youll find. Lol, bar full of old men with appearant escorts hand feeding them and one guy blurping out curses to himself. Wine pour was short the graft they used was just over half full and they explained how they dont want to spill it or something like that as an excuse... More
