The Capital Grille - Houston Ratings and Reviews
Yes, this is a chain establishment, but ...
Yes, this is a chain establishment, but don't let that be your barometer. The interior is old school masculine and dark/cozy; done well however if you like that kind of intimate space. The staff is so proud of their service, they strive hard to make your experience the best possible, that they give you their business card and encourage you to request them on your next visit. The cocktails are creative, the wine list extensive, the food delicious. We ate at Capital Grill in Seattle and wanted to compare it to Houston - both great. Everything we ordered was great I can't pick a favorite. Just order and you will be pleased.
We were here for Houston Restaurant Week ...
We were here for Houston Restaurant Weeks, which will end in a couple of weeks. They donate $7 of each HRW meal to the Food Bank, which means for $38, you get your choice of three appetizers (I recommend Caesar Salad but all were good), several Entrees (I chose the dry aged 14 oz NY steak) and one of three desserts. To make things better, right now they have a wine tasting menu which gives you as much as you want of 7 different wines. Make it a tasting menu, try them all, or whatever you want. I had fun tasting a Cabernet Blend and Stag's Leap Cabernet. The latter was far superior.
If I had to pick one limitation--and it is minor--given the prices they are charging for this charitable event, they depend on turning tables quickly. And, boy do they do that. When I go to Capital Grille, usually it is a 2 to 3 hour event; this time, in and out in 75 minutes. But, I can't blame them for that.

We had friends visiting from out of town and made reservations for Houston Restaurant Weeks because they had a terrfic menu selection and our friends wanted a good steak. When we got to the restaurant not only was it a HRW menu but it was also Generous Pour. It was AMAZING and our friends considered putting their house on the market and moving to Houston because of our incredible evening there. Thank you Jessica and Paige for the wonderful service! Not only was our evening wonderful, we also received a thank you card from our server! Talk about doing things right!

Visited during HRW. While we sometimes visit Capital Grille during other times of the year and have great service, this time was very different as our waiter seemed completely disinterested. Food was very good, as usual, and restaurant was quiet on a rainy night.

A group of us went to dinner to celebrate birthdays and took advantage of Houston Restaurant Weeks. We had a good time, the food was good, but service lacked a little. We were brought the wrong salads, she didn't get the order of the main course correctly and she mixed up the desserts (she really should have written things down). She also went missing for long periods of time and we couldn't find her. And she said she had worked there for over 8 years, but wasn't sure of everything they could offer from the bar.

I had a staff appreciation dinner at the Capital Grille and our server, Jeff, really took care of us. We had outstanding service and the meal was delicious. It's not easy to keep 14 different people happy but Jeff did so easily and everyone left completely satisfied.

Beautiful decor.... Wooden paneling, comfortable tables and chairs, and excellent food. This is the sort of place you expect people who live in triple-digit house numbers on Kirby to dine. The fantastically attentive waiter and excellent hostesses enhanced the experience. The prices are premium but justified given the premium service.

We were there for Restaurant week. The food selection were outstanding and the service excellent. One of us tried the generous Pour and was very generous and great selection.Thank you Jason Joe for outstanding service. You made the night extra special.

Capital Grille does it extremely well regardless of the city in which the particular restaurant is located. It is one of my favorite places to dine when I travel. I had the scallops on this trip which were excellent. For a business dinner, ask for a quiet location within the restaurant.

By far one of the best restaurants in Houston. he service from the minute you walk in the door is literally outstanding. Every measure is taken to insure a remarkable experience. The wine list is incredible. The food, simply among the top 5 spots in Houston. The folks there made you feel like you were the only table in the entire place and were completely on top of their game...without being all over you. Each time we had a mere thought about something it was already on the way. In an era where customer service is declining or dead...they still get it. We will be back again and again and bring guests and friends. Thanks!! This visit was to celebrate our 31st anniversary...by far one of the best meals in the last three decades!!!

The food, as always was exquisite. The service was good, very attentive. I had a birthday in my party. They decorated the table and had a card. The only thing I didn't like was my birthday person was given his complimentary dessert before I could order mine.

Everything was Great. From the Very pleasant welcome from the hostess,the friendly service at bar, very knowledgeable waiter that knew the menu front to back, and what wines to pair with meal. The food was Excellent.

Capital Grille never disappoints! My husband and I have been going to Capital Grille from before we were married. We celebrated birthdays there previously and this time we celebrated our wedding anniversary! As always the service was impeccable and the food amazing (the lobster Mac and cheese is always on point along with all their steaks!). We will be coming back again in the future!

Our server was absolutely awesome! She was personal without being too much in our business. The food was outstanding! This was our second visit to the Capital Grille, and we loved it even more this time. They celebrated our anniversary with a quiet, yet very touching dessert delivered to our table. We don't like to be the center of attention, so this was an awesome way you recognize our anniversary. Thank you!

We attended The Capital Grille in June for a business dinner. The food was exceptional and the service was top notch!
Jean Gundy did an outstanding job for us. Her enchanting personality along with her warm smile added to our dining experience. We were grateful to have her as part of our evening.
I give our overall experience a 10! Thank you for a delightful evening!
