I have been to Capital Grille many times, almost all the time on Fridays. I try coming on Thursday around 6 or 7pm, and forget it, it's packed. You can't even find a seat at the bar. The hostess who you meet as soon as you walk in once told me that they have "regulars" who come in. Who goes to a steak house regularly?

Anyways, whenever you go, eat the 24 ounce dry aged Porterhouse steak. The Filet Mignon side of this steak is godly. You can taste the fact that it is dry aged, at the back of your tongue. It's massive obviously.

And obviously it's pricey, but not any more pricier than other steakhouses like Palm, Smith and Wollensky and Ruth Steak house. But it beats them all in taste.

Our anniversary dinner at Capital Grill was amazing. Our waiter, Yoshio, made us feel special but was not intrusive. Our food was perfectly cooked and presented. I highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions. It can be a bit noisy so ask for a corner table or booth.

WOW - this was the best dinner I have had in the Houston area probably ever ! We do more upscale restaurants for special occasions- birthdays/anniversaries etc. I chose the capital grille for my birthday dinner and it surpassed my expectations! The food and the attentive service was 5 plus stars . There were sprinkles on the tablecloth for my birthday and they took our pic. We each had a cocktail - shared a Caesar salad - I got the tenderloin w the lobster tails and hubs got the filet oscar - also had to have their signature lobster mac n cheese- the entrees were amazing and the mac n cheese was deliciously decadent . They brought a complimentary birthday creme brûlée w berries - it was perfect . Jason was our server - he was awesome as well as the attentive support wait staff . Jeremiah, one of the managers, stopped by twice to check on us which was truly wonderful customer service. They will have our business for all our special occasions from now on !! Thanks for such a wonderful birthday dinner Capital Grille

From the moment we entered the "Grille " we were treated as if we were the most important clients. The meal was well prepared, the service was prompt, courteous and discreet. The ambience was perfect for a quiet meal at the end of the day.

Luxuriously appointed, we had a very comfortable booth. Loved the artwork and bronzes decorating this classic restaurant. Also loved the open kitchen, always good to watch the cooking process. Our meal was very good, and like everything in Texas - HUGE! Well located very close to The Galleria shopping mall. Good, helpful valet. Highly recommended.
