    Unfortunately, our experience at Cap City Grandview was just okay. The prices have risen again, the food was far from exceptional and came out much too quickly. We want to continue to support this local fav, but our last few experiences have been less than stellar.

    Went on our first date in over a year, and we couldn't have picked a better place! The ambiance was very romantic, the wait staff was professional, friendly, and efficient, and the food pretty much melted in your mouth with the perfect pop of flavor. Thank you so much Cap City, for making our (much needed) night... PERFECT!

    The restaurant has a friendly staff, comfortable seating and a nice ambiance. It has a lively clientele, but we don't get the feeling of being stuffed in. We came fairly often despite the huge repertoire of restaurants in Columbus.

    This was my first visit to Cap City and it did not disappoint. The service was extremely friendly and very efficient. The potato chips with melted blue cheese appetizer is crazy good. Try the Banana Bread Pudding for dessert. Delicious!

    The lunch was great, reminded us of when we would quick get a way from the office for some comfort food, specifically the Maytag chips and the meat loaf. Now we still order the same fare and talk really fast as if it was our last outing.

    My wife and I have been here several times, and we've booked the reservation through OpenTable each time. From the time we made the reservation until we finished our meal and left, everything was top notch. The atmosphere is casual, yet upscale. The food is excellent, yet reasonably priced. The service is impeccable. and it's obvious the employees enjoy their jobs. It shows in everything they do.

    It was the first time eating at this restaurant so I wasn't sure what to expect. I ate on the patio, and would probably never eat inside. It seemed very open and busy, whereas the patio was more private and quiet. Our server was very nice but socially awkward whenever he came to our table. The food was amazing, but not worth as much as we paid for. ONE crab cake was $13 and it was not big at all.

    Our table shared the GF cheddar covered potato chips. One member of our party was skeptical at first but when the plate came out we all picked it clean! Delicious starter! Yummy dinners all around. Service was lacking. We got the feeling our server was new or just not up to par with the type of service we expected. She seemed timid and shy. Biggest upset of the night, 3 of us went with empty water glasses for 12 minutes. We pushed our glasses to the very edge of the table to try and get noticed. Not only did our server neglect to see, but we became surprised no other servers took an initiate either. A manager even walked by our table and failed to ask us about our meal or the service or notice the three glaringly empty glasses. #parched

    I've eaten here two different times and the only thing I'd go back for is the key lime pie. On this visit the hostess was rude, but our server was pretty nice. I ordered the ribs on his recommendation and they were just ok, not the best or the worst I've eaten. No one at our table ate much of their food until dessert came and we thoroughly enjoyed the key lime pie.

    I brought a small group of public service staff members to the restaurant to recognize them for their outstanding service to our agency and to the community. I made reservations for the event. When we arrived, we were seated immediately and our server also gave us quick and constant attention. The lunch menu had many delicious options and most items were reasonably priced. Each of us enjoyed our meals and our decadent deserts! Overall it was an outstanding experience and although we can't do this often in public service, we'll return again for our next recognition event.

    We come here 3 or 4 times a year and it's always great. Or server this past time was very courteous but efficient about it. We all enjoyed him. Almost all of us got the meatloaf because it's our favorite and that good! There are 5 people in my family and usually 3 or 4 of us choose to come here for our birthday. The desserts are really good too!

    The food was spot on and all in my party of 6 agreed. But, our waitress was kind of spacey. She brought the wrong entree out for me and made some excuse and then I had to ask her twice to bring me a condiment, so by the time I received it, I was halfway through my meal. I also had to ask for a refill on my beverage. She just wasn't as attentive as she should've been and how most servers at Cap City are. Perhaps she was out late the night before? Not my problem.

    Dined on 8/17/2014
    Met with sons 25 and 23 for Sunday night dinner as they live nearby. A favorite of the family for many years. We each have a favorite dish. One son ordered the crab stuffed tilapia, which looked delicious and was according to him. The romano crusted chicken was very good as well and ordered by 2 in the family. I had the spicy chicken rigatoni, which I have had before. In this instance, the dish was not very spicy and the spicy sauce was very runny and lacked much flavor. Unusual for this dish. Service refilling drinks was a little slow. We were seated on the patio and it was not very crowded so unsure as to the reason. This visit was fine, but not up to the standards of previous visits.

    Cap City has become one of our favorite places to go. With a wide-selection of entries and first rate appetizers, my family's diverse demands (we run from vegetarian to carnivore) are generally met. Food is tasty, service is pretty fast, a little crowded inside. Nevertheless, it is unlikely that we do not go there once a month.
