Excellent, Romantic Dinner for my Wife's Birthday. I looked at plenty of other options for this birthday celebration, but ended up going back to the old stand-by, The Capital Grille.
I have taken numerous visitors as well and everyone always raves. The Delmonico Rib Eye is fantastic (Porcini Rubbed with 15-year aged balsamic) is out of this world. The lobster mac-n-cheese is a must. Excellent service and ambiance. And they added a special touch for the birthday.

We had such a lovely time at the Capital Grille! I ordered clam chowder and a salmon dish. The salmon was sushi grade, moist, and delicately seasoned. The clam chowder was fabulous too. When our waiter, Roberto, found out it was my birthday, he comped us a wonderful flourless chocolate cake. Roberto couldn’t have been more attentive; the chef Daniel P. visited our table twice, and the manager Gabriela visited our table, too. My meal was just $20. We are not wealthy and don’t dress that way. We are retired without important positions and know no one who has one. But the people at the Capital Grille made us feel as if we were truly special. It wasn’t just lunch at the Capital Grille; it was a dining experience.

Just back from business trip to Houston. Business meal out demanded the Capital Grill on Westheimer. Staff attentive. Well informed and working with an excellent menu. Wide choice of wines. True. Everything is expensive here. Food, wine and bar drinks. Decor is a little dark for my taste but that doesn't affect the food does it? All in all, would recommend.

The Capital Grill is as good as you would expect. This is a top notch restaurant with an excellent choice of food and wines. Service is very good, never rushed and professional. Is it the best in Houston? No! Is it good value? It sure is pricey so, if you are looking for value, then No....you could eat as well in dozens of top Houston restaurants.

I have been wanting to visit this restaurant over the years if travel in several different cities where they are located and finally got to visit the one on Westheimer in Houston. The service, apps and dinner were outstanding. Had the steak tartare, wedge salad and seared tuna. great food and the service was outstanding.
