We started out with the Shrimp Cocktail. It was very good. I had the wedge salad, which was also very good. Two of us had the Filet Mignon and one had the Lobster. All were very good. We had the brussells sprout and potatoes Au Gratin to share. All were very good.

We made a last minute reservation to celebrate a birthday at Capital Grille and couldn't have been more delighted with the entire experience. Most places wish you a happy birthday but they went beyond. From the greetings of staff as we were shown to a quiet corner table (just as we had requested) where colorful confetti glitter decorated the table top, throughout the entire evening attention to detail and friendly service accompanied the excellent food. We enjoyed the featured generous pour. We expected a candle with dessert but they added Happy Birthday written in chocolate and took a photo which they presented to us with the check. It all made for a wonderful evening.

I have had dry aged steaks at several places including other Capitol Grilles, however, this New York was just not good. It was very dry - more than you would expect from a dry aged, but, the most disconcerting part was the flavor, it tasted like liver. I have been to other Capitol Grille's and enjoyed them, I hope this was just an anomaly.

I made a note on my reservation that we were celebrating our 25th anniversary. When we arrived, the restaurant had reserved the best seats for us - a round booth in the corner. The table was decorated with red confetti hearts and there was a hand written anniversary card. The manager came by to congratulate us. Our server Chris made sure that everything was perfect and made this feel like such a special occasion for us. The food and service were wonderful and it was definitely a memorable anniversary celebration. Highly recommended, and we will definitely return!

Very much enjoyed our Anniversary dinner at capital Grill. They had a special table for us complete with anniversary card and decorations. Zack our waiter was outstanding. The food was very good also but only gave it 4 stars because of a couple of very minor constructive criticisms. The lobster & crab cakes were very good but could have used just a touch more seasoning - maybe just a little salt - and my wife's steak was ever so slightly over cooked. Still very, very good. She likes them with the center cool, but not cold (essentially room temperature), so just slightly above rare. The high cooking temp & warm plate resulted in more like medium rare. Like I said, very tasty steak, but just a touch a way from perfect.
All in all a fantastic dinner, very well done.

The food was magnificent as it always is! We had a great time chatting with our guests. Drinks were fabulous. Our sever was overall good. He was a little forgetful but other than that a great personality and a great outgoing individual. Love this restaurant and will come back!

Capital Grille did an excellent job of making our anniversary special. They spent time making sure that everything was perfect down to a personnel note on our table. Their eye for detail and the service were amazing.
Kitchen needs work
The room is well-appointed and the service was attentive and gracious, but the lunch plate --steak frites--was disappointing. The salad was fresh and the frites were crispy, but the steak was gristly and grilled medium-well instead of rare as ordered. The meat was definitely not the quality nor the preparation that Cap Grill is known for.
I've enjoyed this same plate at other Capital Grills and was anticipating similar quality here, all to no avail. I hope the kitchen improves to the level of their other locations.
Don't waist your time and money with it!!!
Based on its price I was expecting a better food and service. I ordered a fried calamari. It says on the menu spicy, so I was expecting a homemade spicy sauce, but I gotta my spicy fried calamari with pieces of jalapeno. Any one can do it!!!
Very disappointed. My friend ordered the 10oz filet mignon. It was okay.
Great food and service for B-day
As always when you want to get treated well w/o asking to be for a special occasion you can always rely on Capital Grill. Everything was perfect to our server, the food the atmosphere, and the overall experience. We had a great booth, and this is the type of place where you can go and have an intimate discussion. Great evening.
Good as Ever
The Capitol Grill in City Centre continues to out perform almost all of the Houston west side foodie venues. Their wine list is not inundated with the standard Houston California restaurant cabernets and the constantly changing list allows the diner to select from many excellent old world wines that highly compliment their excellent menu choices. Attention to presentation detail continues to be a hallmark of the restaurant. The staff seems to really enjoy their labor and that positive vibe is felt by most of the customers. We enjoyed both of our entres (a scallop dish for me and a surf and turf item for her) which were enhanced by a bottle of a well priced, quality village level white Burgundy as well as an excellent glass of a red Rhone that my wife used to wash down the beef portion of her entre. We will return!

Excellent steaks and sides. I recommend getting something prepared uniquely to the Capital Grille like the aged balsamic rib eye.
The ambience is a bit boring and reminded me on a business waiting lounge. The service is good although our server was a bit of a stiff. Not a big deal but definitely something to consider if you are looking for a first date kind of place.
Great people Make Great resturants!
Each time we come to the Capital Grill is for a special occasion. They have ALWAYs gone above and beyond! The level of integrity each employee has for thier guests is unbelieveable! from the second you are greeted by someone opening the front door to the last morsel of food has been savored they ensure you are totally satisfied!
Thank you for having us and helping us to celebrate!

Reservations were made, but the table was not available. Chris, the manager, made us comfortable in the lounge, and found the primo table for us with a wait of less than 10 minutes.
Chef presented us with a complimentary appetizer, the server was quite attentive to our needs,
the food superb!!
Table had a birthday card for my guest and the birthday desert, again served by the chef, was decadent. 5tars does not cover this memorial evening.
This was our first visit to the Capital Grille at this location. The food and ambiance was very good, but the service was outstanding. Our waiter Chris did a great job of taking care of us. Everyone went out of thier way to make us feel welcome and at home.
Lunch Time at Capital Grill
There is no better place in west Houston for lunch than Capital Grill at City Center. The menu can be light with their tasty salads or a cup of soup or you can make it a feast with their excellent choices of steak or maybe a favorite fish. All the food is prepared perfectly and plated beautifully. They have an extensive wine list with many available by the glass. Save a little room for one of their sweet deserts or just enjoy a fresh baked cookie with your coffee.
Oh, and don't worry about the parking even though you know it's going to be crowded in City Center. The valets are friendly and quick to get you your car out. Don't let the $8 valet sign upset you. Just get your ticket validated when you walk in and throw a few dollars at the driver when you get your car.
Brussels sprout salad the best part of the meal
We arrived on time for our Valentines 6PM reservation but were told our table would not be ready for about 15 minutes. Brussels Sprout salad was very good. My filet was very good but my husband did not care for his chilean sea bass . He said he has better at other restaurants. Service was good, not great but decent.
We have been there many times but will return to their other location on Westheimer after our experience with the horrible valet outside the restaurant. It was very understaffed on Valentines and very disorganized, Huge line and wait time of at least 20 plus minutes.To top it off the valet dropped our key fob down the inside of the seat by the middle console making it incredibly hard to retrieve.
