Capital Grille is great. My wife & I had an anniversary dinner (away from the kids) and we could not have asked for a more enjoyable experience. The staff was top notch! I would recommend Capital Grille to others however they need to be prepared for the price. Very comparable to other high end restaurants but know going in that it will cost.

Service is exceptional and the food is the best in town. We have enjoyed our Christmas party each year at Capital Grill and they never miss a beat. The party ranges from 16-24 and the staff is always very accommodating. I would recommend the Capital Grill and feel confident that it would be a hit.

I have to admit it.\r
I really like their wedge. I think I could go and have their clam chowder and wedge and leave a happy person without ever touching steak.\r
\r
That's not to say the steak isn't just spectacular and filling, it's flat out wonderful and worth every penny if you want a special night.\r
\r
Now that I've written this, I think I will go back and get \r
just the soup and wedge. Yum!

I was completely blown away by the food and service at The Capital Grille last night!!! When my husband I walked in my first thought was maybe we should not have come on such a busy night. We were warmly greeted and promptly checked in. We had to wait a few minutes for our table which was fine because we got to enjoy a cocktail at the bar. Once we were seated the server was friendly and professional. This was our first visit so we had many questions and as busy as they were he took the time to explain the menu in detail and answer all of our questions. He suggested we start with the Pan Fried Calamari the signature dish. It was a delightful surprise. The peppers and garlic butter it was tossed in enhanced the flavor of the calamari without over powering it. We split a Wedge salad and I had a lobster and my husband had the filet. The server insisted we have the lobster mac & Cheese (too die for) and we also had the mushrooms. We split a slice of cheese cake and the end. All of the food was amazing served hot and fresh! But what sealed the deal was the way they went above and beyond on such a busy night. The manager checked on us twice and I was given a beautiful long stem red rose, they took a picture of us printed it and put it in a cute paper frame and they gave us a little valentines bag with cookies! I had the cookies for breakfast this morning and they were just as wonderful as the meal last night! We can not wait to go back! The Capital Grille was a wonderful experience!!

For anyone who enjoys fining dining with superb personal service, a beautiful restaurant, outstanding wine selection, and delectable cuisine, then The Capital Grille should be the place for you! \r

My husband and I dined at The Capital Grille last night as a Valentine's celebration and what an incredible choice. The impressive service started with the valets and never ended. The staff was personable, warm, and showed such enthusiasm for catering to our needs. They truly seem to love what they do which gives the entire restaurant such personality. The food was impeccable! My husband's kona crusted sirloin held immense flavor. I greatly enjoyed the Oscar topped filet which is by far the best I have ever enjoyed in the city. The lobster mac and cheese is to die for! We finished the evening with an outstanding coconut cream pie.\r
\r
Our experience at The Captial Grille was beyond our expectations. To make our Valentine's Day celebration even more memorable, our photo was taken and presented to us for a keepsake as well as a beautiful long stem red rose, and a elegantly arranged bag of cookies to take home . What restaurant does this!!!!!\r
\r
My husband and I can not wait to return again and again. Thank you Capital Grille for a wonderful, memorable, dining experience.

Just had our first visit to Capital Grille a few nights ago and it was all the things we hope for in a fine dining experience. Excellent steaks, amazing king crab, and some unusual but very tasty side dishes in an elegant but not pretentious atmosphere. Our server Jessica was top notch and made us feel comfortable with the extensive wine list and menu. It was our first visit but certainly won't be our last.

A while ago I wrote to Steve Joest, Managing Partner at Capitol Grille, that it would be nice to have equally attractive nonalcoholic beverages (EANABs) available When we arrived Seth Dehotels, our server, presented us with a delightful chilled sparkling apple juice, sent by Steve. The night unfolded as a sophisticated Valentines Dinner like we have never had before. Steve sent an appetizer that I do not think is on the menu, of crabcakes (the best I have had), prosciutto encrusted cheese and Alaskan crab. It was a wonderful surprise, and magnificently prepared and presented. We then had our dinner of a tasty Caeser salad with whole anchovies, lobster bisque that was creamy and delightful with large chunks of lobster. Out main course was a porterhouse done to perfection and a filet mignon with lobster that was astounding. Sides were lobster mac-and-cheese, asparagus and truffle fries. All were at the appropriate temperatures and wonderful flavor. Yes, we intentionally overordered so we would have lunch tomorrow (Valentine's Day) as a romantinc reminderof our dinner. We intended to skip dessert, but Seth explained the blackberry sorbet was freshly made, so we went for it. it was an incredible experience. As we were preparing to leave, Seth presented a satchel of cookies for Valerie, and very nice touch. The service by Seth was impeccable, the dinner exquisite, and the experience could not have been better for a very romantic Valentine's Dinner. Capitol Grille is our favorite restaurant, and we appreciate the special effort Steve Joest made to ensure a perfect experience. Thank you Steve and thank you, Seth, and all the others that made this such a wonderful evening.

I made reservations to eat at Capital Grille for the first time last night in honor of my son's 17th birthday as well to be able to take advantage of the extension of Houston Restaurant Week. The reservationist asked if we were celebrating a special occasion- which I informed her we were. Long story short, there were high and low points to our first visit with them:\r
\r
High points: \r
1) The ambiance is very elegant and the decor classic. 2) The kona crusted sirloin was cooked to perfection and very tasty, Sam's mashed potatoes were creamy and well seasoned and the creamed spinach was surprisingly very good. \r
\r
Low points:\r
1) Our waiter, Terry was not at all personable. He didn't feel the need to introduce himself to us, and was so nonchalant that until he returned to take our order, we thought he was only there to deliver the bread and fill the water glasses. Once we saw that he was indeed our server, I asked him for his name. We found ourselves envious of the excellent service that surrounding tables were receiving from their servers. \r
2) The clam chowder tasted exactly like the canned Campbell's version\r
3)The creme brulee was average at best. It was a bit too thick for our tastes. The version at Perry's Steakhouse is much better!\r
4) Our special occasion was never acknowledged. Not that I expected the servers to gather and present a rendition of ""Happy Birthday"", however, it still would have been nice for them to acknowledge the celebration in some way. \r
\r
All in all, we were pleased with the food, especially for the price. \r

The service is absolutely excellent. The waiter goes above and beyond to anticipate what you want. Oysters from NE were fresh and good. Aged steak was good but not outstanding - not to the quality I would expect from the place which specializes in aged steaks. Overall I enjoyed the experience and will probably go back again for a nice pleasant atmosphere and nice food.

Capitol Grill near the Galleria, truly made my birthday celebration a memorable celebration.Our waiter was attentive but did not rush us. The special details such as the rose, the photo developed and given to us during dinner was a nice touch but....\r
The steaks were excellent, juicy and cooked to perfection. The lobster mac n cheese was to die for. My husbands lobster bisque was creamy and filled with lobster pieces and the caesar salad was yummy. If that wasn't enough the creme brulee served with a candle for my dessert was delicious. We were so delighted with our experience and definitely will return soon. I waited way too long to come in for dinner this time.

We hadn't been to The Capital Grille for years, and went for a birthday celebration with guests from out of town. My elderly mother and I are not big eaters, and I know the portions are substantial. I think it was when we split our appetizer that our waiter lost interest in our table. The rest of the evening went downhill from there. When we ordered a bottle of wine for two of us, he misunderstood and served two half glasses. It was unbelievable, and actually embarrassing. I think the sharing of an appetizer gave him the impression that we would not be big spenders. There were too many really offensive mistakes to write about.

My husband and I went to dinner here a couple nights ago for the second time and it was just as memorable as the first. They definitely know how to treat their customers special. I had decided to make a reservation for our dinner that night being that this place gets pretty busy even on a weekday. When we were seated, we were delighted to see that they had dressed up our table with pink rose petals. It really set the mood for our night. Everything we put in our mouth was so amazing. The Lobster and Crab Cakes were mouthwatering. I ordered the Veal Chop Milanese and it was so delish. It was a flattened veal chop, breaded in panko bread crumbs and fried to a golden brown. They accompanied it with arugula and grape tomatoes, which complemented the crusted meat well. We ended the wonderful dinner with the Creme Brulee. It was the best Creme Brulee I have ever tasted! It was rich and creamy but not overly sweetened. \r
I recommend The Capital Grille to anyone who wants top notch customer service and a quality dining experience.\r

low-lighting great for private dinner. the best steak we had and we had visit already Palm, Pappas Steakhouse , Perry's Steakhouse and Mark's American Cuisine. By far the best from all of these- try the Filet Oscar... best of both worlds juicy steak top with Crab meat plus creme....Also the best mashed potatoes ever tasted.\r
my fiance had Dry-aged Porterhouse - season perfect and my bother-in-law had the steak Delmonica - great juicy with a flavor like no other.\r
I tried all steak but my favorite is Filet Oscar- thinking of having it at our wedding reception as main entree.

First of all let me say that the service and ambiance at Capital Grille is fantastic. The waiters truly go above and beyond to meet your every need. It doesn't matter if you are there for once a year romantic dinner, a regular who eats there once a week or dining customers for a business dinner. The restaurant itself has this era gone by charm. It's filled with beautiful painings and low lighting that make you feel like you are eating in an elegant home instead of a restaurant. \r
I have eaten at Capital Grille a few times in the last year and each time I tell people, to their dismay, that the food is just ok. The seafood is very fresh and well presented. The side dishes are all delicious, especially the lobster mac and cheese. The desserts are very plentiful but mediocre. And the steaks.....are just average. The meat is good quality and well prepared; it is the flavor that is lacking. I have had a better steak from the grill in my backyard. I'm not sure why the meat lacks flavor but I would rather not pay $40 a steak again to try and see if it has improved. \r
\r
There are other places here in Houston that have better food without the big dent on your wallet.

I've lived in Houston all my life and had yet to try Capital Grille. My lovely bf thought that Vday 09 would be a great chance for both of us to try it out. We went for the 13th to try and cut down on the crowds a teeny bit. We got lucky and snagged a parking space without valet. The restaurant was packed to the gills. We were seated within 5 minutes of our reservation time and greeted by our very pleasant and knowledgeable server Rene. The wine list is extensive with choices in various price ranges. We chose an easy drinking cab and proceeded to go over the menu. Here's what we had:\r
\r
Shrimp cocktail - 5 large, fresh, dense meat shrimp served on ice with a mild cocktail sauce\r
\r
Filet and butter poached lobster - melt in your mouth filet, paired with tender lobster claw meat over soft mashed potatoes\r
\r
Kona crusted dry aged sirloin with roasted shallot butter - a flavorful crust of ground Kona coffee, something different and delicious\r
\r
Parmesan truffle fries - like McD's on steroids! Crispy fries with salty parmesan cheese and promninent but not overpowering earthiness of truffle\r
\r
Roasted seasonal mushrooms - cremini, portobello, shitake, and oyster mushrooms in rosemary-thyme-garlic butter\r
\r
Cheesecake with fresh berries - a great, not too dense, not too sweet cheesecake with strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries\r
\r
What a fantastic meal we had! The service was attentive without being intrusive. We will definitely be back again soon!

I just discovered Capital Grille this summer in D.C... we were at the Capital Grille at the Capitol. And so I had to try the Houston location because I couldn't stop thinking about the LOBSTER Mac N Cheese. Yeah, Lobster! It sounds weird, at least it did to me, but it is the absolute best. It's a side dish. The cheese is a high quality combo of a few different cheeses and the lobster is soft and tender--PERFECTION. We went there for drinks and apps before a big dinner party in midtown. There was four of us, we had three beers, an amaretto sour, two orders of Lobster mac n cheese, and the onion rings. The onion rings were very tasty and the batter was crispy, almost like big flakes of panko Japanese bread crumbs, light, airy, crunchy. The bar staff was super nice. They set up a table cloth on our table since we were eating. Half the part was pretty casual, but they treated us very nicely nonetheless. They block A LOT of spaces for valet so you may need to walk across the parking lot if you want to park yourself. Great food, great service. We will be back. You should check them out!

I couldn't resist the blue-point oysters which were marvelous, cold, salty .....I had a dozen. Not cheap but very very good. The wine list is super. A wide variety of American reds and whites in a range of prices. The rest of the world selection is not vast but there are many solid choices. \r
The dry aged sirloin was certainly the best steak I've had in recent memory. Prepared medium rare....it was tasty to the last bite. Service was just right...attentive, not rushed, a real pleasure. I look forward to a return visit.

Thanks to you folks at the Capital Grille for a delightful experience. My first visit (lured in by your participation in the End Hunger Benefit) and I pray, not the last. The food out of your kitchen is mouth-watering; I loved the Creme Brulee, best in town I believe. Great choices on the wine list. Lastly, but above all, you've recruited spectacular servers; from the moment one enters your establishment, all were cordial, jovial, knowledgeable and PERFECTLY attentive. Indisputably, first class, keep it up!

Cons: If you are concerned about value - Expect quality, Not quantity.

Wow!!! Now this is a place to go! The service is first class and the food is spectacular! The kind of place that you would go on a special occasion or if you just want to treat yourself. Bring your walet though! But WELL WORTH! Keep up the great work guys!

I visited this restaurant for the first time last weekend after hearing rave reviews. I must say the hype is true. Every detail from start to finish was executed perfectly. The porterhouse is a dry aged in house and was the best I have ever had. The service was professional but not stuffy allowing my date and I to have a great night. Highly recommended!

I visited this restaurant for the first time last weekend after hearing rave reviews. I must say the hype is true. Every detail from start to finish was executed perfectly. The porterhouse is a dry aged in house and was the best I have ever had. The service was professional but not stuffy allowing my date and I to have a great night. Highly recommended!

Pros: Great food, professional and fun service, great bartenders

.

My wife and I have dined here on numerous occasions, most recently a few weeks ago. We lvoe the ambience and the food never fails to satisfy. However the staff are sometimes left wanting (wine service was not knowledgable or broad) and the arrogance is what I'd expect in Rome or Paris, not in Houston.\r
\r
Overall, steaks were cooked as requested and delivered promptly. Appetizers and desserts were great. Food is very good - let down by poor service

The only way I really enjoy Capital Grill is if 1) I have had a least 3 drinks before arriving or 2) I am with a large group and I want to enjoy their company.\r
My business requires me to travel and eat out about 20 times a month. \r
Luckily, I can chose to eat where ever I wish to, however when I am in Houston I will only go to The Capital Grille if I have a client that is in love with it must be good because it is so expensive or the two reasons above.\r
The food is only ok. The servers try hard and often succeed but the noise and the cost for what you receive\r
just doesn't work.

I went to The Capital Grille last night w/ a friend that also loves to eat fine food. The restaurant's decor & service were first class, but I like to focus on food. We had the calamari, lobster bisque, lettuce wedge, & lobster mac & cheese. My friend had the veal chop & I had the Delmonico steak (bone-in ribeye) for our entrees. The calamari was good. The lobster mac & cheese was ok. That sounded different so we just wanted to try it. I was very disappointed w/ the lobster bisque. I thought the bisque was very bland & the lobster not fresh. I'm very picky with steak. My friend's veal chop was pretty good, but the Delmonico was amazing. It was one of the best steaks I've had in a long time. I shared a lot of it w/ my friend becausse I couldn't keep her off of my steak. It was cooked perfectly, good color on the inside, tender, & very flavorful. I was very disappointed in the lobster bisque, but if you love steak, you have to try the Delmonico steak.

I went to the capital grille for the first time on a sunday afternoon. Two friends and I were the only ones there. The ambience was INCREDIBLE felt like old hollywood. This place is known for their steaks but I just had the warm spinach salad- DELICIOUS! Our waiter was nice and attentive. Definitely going back!

I went to a co-worker's birthday dinner at Capital Grille. I've read plenty of great reviews about the restaurant and the Grille's Demonico 22 ounce steak. Now, I can see why. If you try ANYTHING at Capital Grille... try the Grille's Domonico steak. It's a little pricey at $41 bucks but oh man it?s delicious and well worth it. Capital Grille dry age their steaks so this steak was EXTRA tender and full of FLAVOR. They dry age it for 30 days if I remember correctly. I got my steak medium rare and it was off the hook! haha. Not to sound cheesy but I took my first bite and my friend pointed out? damn that must be good because you?re smiling. The lobster and crab cake was really good too. Service was excellent and informative. C.G. has a huuuuge wine list!\r
\r
Just a tid bit of information? the waitress was telling me the Domnico?s cut is a prime cut which has more fat marbling? which means more flavor. The other steaks on the menu were a choice cut vs a prime cut. Go for the prime cut!\r
\r
I'll be going again for another special occasion. =)

Wow. I wanted a fantastic meal for my birthday and I was not at all disappointed. The steak was the best I've had, the cold seafood platter was fresh and delicious, the whole meal superb.\r
The service was impeccable - thank you Tony Fasfassian for your ""right on"" information about the wine and food and all your attentiveness. I highly recommend The Capital Grille and please ask for Tony.\r
He listens...and delivers! One improvement I would've recommended would be a bit more kick to the cocktail sauce. Its a bit bland. But don't let that stop you from enjoying one of Houston's best!

I've had dinner at Capital Grille four times in a year and everthing is really good, from the mac and cheese to the tuna. To THE FEllAS call ahead and tell the receptionist if this is a speacial occasion. For me it was my anniversary and the watier took a picture of my wife and I and put it in a little Capital Grille frame. Just go and treat you and that special person in your life, it is WORTH IT.

The steaks at Capital Grille are really in a food group unknown to any other restarant. The steaks are dry-aged here in their own vault, and served to perfection with your chosen compliment of side dishes or appretizers. The Porcini rubbed Delmonico steak with Balsamic vinegarette was absolutely delicious and incredibly tender. The side dishes of creamed spinach and scalloped potatoes were plentiful and scrumptously accomodating as a compliment to our meals. \r
Impressive service, and romantic, subdued lighting add to the dining experience, especially if you are with a date or someone special.

Simply put, great service and great food. Our waiter ordered for us and did a very good job. My wife had the Delmonico Steak and I had fish. Both dishes were excellent. My wife swears it is the best steak in town. We also had their signature french fries, an off the menu item. They sprinkle truffles on the fries, which make them taste very delicious. We will definately come back.

My brother and I had the opportunity to visit the Capital Grille while visiting Houston. We had an absolutely outstanding experience from the internet/phone reservations to the bar to the dining experience. The hostess, bartender and servers -- namely Emily -- were all top of the line. Since the food has not yet been mentioned, we both indulged in the massive 14 oz. filet, which was hands down the best either of us had had the opportunity to treat our taste buds. While waiting for our main course, which also was complemented by ridiculously good au gratin potatoes and asparagus, Emily treated us to TCG's Fried Calamari and Stoli Doli...both were unchartered territory for both of us and we couldn't have been more satiated. The former included some mild peppers that make it unique, and the latter, the juice squeezed from a pineapple soaked in Stoli vodka, was a solid complement to the calamari.\r
\r
You know, the only downside to a meal and experience like this is that EVERYTHING else pales in comparison!!!

Everything my wife and I had was truly fantastic. I guess the dry aging really works because our filets were not only tender, but the most flavorful we've ever tasted. The cold seafood platter was tremendous. Lobster shrimp and raw oysters-oh my. I will say this, the Capitol Frille is a bit pricey, but when my wife told me it was the best meal she had ever eaten-I viewed it as money well spent. The service was also extremely friendly. Sometimes I hate when the chef/manager/ and/or owner come out to tables(the Artie Bucco Effect). However, the manager Steve was actually so classy and down to earth-that I actually enjoyed meeting him. Then again, I might be biased because like myself, I learned he was from Mississippi.\r
Bottom line-

Its elegant, dark-wood interior makes you think that this is how the Old Boys' Network decorate. However, the staff & service are anything but pompous or snooty. Yes, there are alot of Suits & their polished & poised wives dining, but everyone is there to appreciate a fine meal. I had the lamb, cooked to my liking, succulent and tender. Tony, our waiter, suggested to order spilt sides since we wanted to try the mashed and lyonnaise 'taters, great idea, wonderful accompaniment. My co-worker order the special- Aussie sea bass, which she absolutely enjoyed. We shared a huge wedge of the Hazelnut choco cake for dessert - the cake not too sweet & balanced with the mousse filling. I forgot to ask about the individual wine cubbies that housed wines/liquers for some recognizable names. Overall an excellent and elegant dining meal, for any special occassion.

I felt out of my league walking into this galleria area restaurant but quickly got over it with the wonderful service my party received. You can dress casually or to the nines and fit right in. The signature drink, the Stoli Doli Martini is to die for. I highly recommend the Delmonico steak with vinegrette and mushroom rub. Absolutely wonderful!

this place is pretty over rated. i had some kind of steak, but i don't really remember what i ate...enough said. it is a little too crowded to be romantic. the wines are over priced...marked up 4 to 5 times, but i suppose it is to be expected for it being in the galleria area. i do commend the staff. they are very knowledgeable and well trained.

Went to the Capital Grille on a Sunday special occasion primarily because our other choices for restaurants were closed. We were not disappointed, and were very pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was great, service was very good, the wine list was spectacular, and the steak was one of the best I've eaten anywhere. Along with the mound of onion shavings and perfectly prepared asparagus, the total meal was well worth the price. Since my wife had very little to drink, I had opportunity to try several of their reds by the glass and I was very happy with their offerings. Afterwards in the bar, an after dinner port and cigar were a great way to finish off the evening. All in all, a great experience, and we'll definitely be back.

I dined at The Capital Grille, Saturday March 6th, 2004 and I must say that I have been to many Steak houses and this one rates at the very top.

I had the BEST bone-in rib eye I have ever had and I have dined in some of the best steakhouses in the country.

The service was terrific. Very attentive and professional staff.

I highly recommend this restaurant.

Rating Texas Land as having the number one steak is like rating McDonalds the number one burger. If I want a quick steak and am willing to sacrifice taste I'll go to Texas Land. If I want to eliminate the screaming kid next to me, eliminate the waitress who has had 5 industry jobs in 6 months, and perhaps have a wine selection that will go with my cut I'd chose Capital Grille in a heart beat.

We have eaten at the Capital Grille several times and each time has been incredible. George and his staff are meticulous, thoughtful, energetic and humorous all of which makes for a great experience. The steaks are the best (go for the larger size as it is only a few bucks more) the lobster bisque is like the heavens. Also they have a Stoley drink which is vodka and pineapple and is a must try. The selection of wines is well thought out (there must be over 400 bottles) and reasonably priced. If I were going to die tomorrow, I would have my last meal here for sure!

The Calamari as an appetizer was good and the mixed shellfish appetizer was good. The dry aged 24 oz Sirloin Steak had no taste at all. It was a lot of meat but had no flavor! It reminded me of a steak you would get up in the NorthEast. The service was good but for the price and taste of the food I think you can find much better elsewhere. If you want a truly mouthwatering steak try Pappas Steak house on Westheimer. I had a Ribeye there that is out of this world.
