  • Disappointing Special Occasion.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 11/18/2014
    I made this reservation for a special occasion. We were seated in front of the entry door and in front of the kitchen and beside the area where the staff "hang-out". It was VERY cold [arctic blast every time the door opened] and too much noise from the kitchen and staff. There are other tables that could have accommodated a party of six. It was disappointing. The waitress wasn't very attentive, but the food [as always] was very good.

    Our Cap City experience was perfect. My sister was here from Florida and we came for brunch after church last Sunday. I had easily made reservations on Open Table and our table was infront of the fireplace to warm us. Our food was delicious and we enjoyed a leisurely meal and time together. When my sister and I wanted to purchase Cameron gift cards, David, our server said he could, but told us about the special of an added $25 card would be given for every $100 gift card starting the very next day, Monday 11/17. So we did get 2 gift cards the next day to give as thank you gifts for our friends. Please pass our "thank you" to David, we did not get to say it to him or good bye as he was dutifully serving others.

    My husband and I went to Cap City for dinner before going to the Lion King. We were worried about having enough time to eat, but we shouldn't have been. The service was great and super fast. Our waitress recommended their specialty margarita which I loved! We had pecan-crusted pork chops and meatloaf and both entrees were not only delicious, the portions were large (I had to take one of the chops home). I would definitely recommend this fantastic restaurant.

    My husband likes their meatloaf. I like their pecan encrusted pork chops. Our only complaint about Cap City is that it is often very loud in there. I despise a restaurant where I have to scream to be heard by the person at the same table.

    I've nearly always had a great experience at Cap City. This visit we went for dinner (though we were back two days later for brunch) Very classic "diner" feel to the place and noise level was pretty moderate too. Food was outstanding, you HAVE to get the Blue Maytag chips, the Meatloaf and the Chocolate Cake. All three are delicious. Service was listed as a 4, just because water refills were a tad behind my preference, but it was rather busy so understandable.

    Met friends for dinner. We have never been disappointed with a meal here. Excellent service- many on the wait staff have been there for years, and they are pleasant, efficient, and knowledgeable. Entrees are sort of comfort food made upscale, and they are very good. Fun, sort of mid century atmosphere. If you don't have reservations, you will have a wait. It is very popular in the community.

    We were a large group of 10 and as an agency we celebrate Halloween and came in costume. Our servers Chris and Chris (one in training) made it an extra special good time. Our food was all served at the same time...no mistakes and they kept the table cleared of plates and the refills kept coming. We love the food at Cap City and we prefer the Grandview location. We are a domestic violence shelter and this is a way for the agency to support our staff. Each year we dress up for Halloween and if you wear a costume the agency will buy your lunch and the staff chooses where they want to go...and everyone agreed we needed some of those awesome chips.........what a way to relieve stress. Thanks for a great time.

    Walleye
    Dined on 10/27/2014
    As a first time diner, I was looking forward to the experience and invited good friends. All was fine until we ordered the "monday special" - a crab topped walleye that was described by our server, but not on the menu. When the dish arrived, no one recognized it as walleye which is typically a thin fillet, or served with the bones, and usually skin on. The fillet we were served was the average looking, thick piece of sole. There was no crab to be seen on the plate save for a few pieces in a thick white sauce. As I said, everything else was fine, but the apparent deception made us question whether we would ever come back. An e-mail sent directly to the restaurant has yet to be responded to.

    Every Cameron Mitchell restaurant I've visited has been great. Cap City Diner is a regular choice when we are headed downtown because we can always count on friendly, efficient service and great food. This visit began with warm greetings, our choice of table, and a nice glass of wine. My diet-conscious friend saves her calories for only the best treats. She splurged on their signature meat loaf and loved every bite. I savored every morsel of their delectable salmon. We had just enough relaxing time before dinner arrived, and we were not rushed out when our meal was finished, even though they were getting busier. We can always count on Cap City, and we will be back soon!

    The food is always good - however in our past few visits the service has been noticeably declining. As soon as we were seated a patron behind us had water spilled all over her and her booth seat. Our food was brought out for 4 of us and the other 3 were dropped all over the floor - no manager came to apologize and no attempt was made for any adjustment to their bills. While we waited on the 3 dropped meals - we heard several other crashes and gasps - it was an odd night for sure. Our server took our drink order and didn't come back to the table to take orders for 15 minutes - same time span when we were paying our bills. She took our cards - and we didn't see her again for 15 minutes - Not a spiffy night for service for sure

  • Balsamic Chicken

    Dined on 10/11/2014
    I am very disappointed with the changes to this meal. You used to get 3 chicken breasts, then two and eventually one. This time I got something (partial breast) with bones. Did not care for it at all and will not be reordering. I had enjoyed this for many, many years. Also have loved (still do) the balsamic vinegar part. At some point in time they started to add some other yellowish sauce. Do not care for it and it took away from the good balsamic flavor. My husband ordered the club sandwich...the bread/toast was burnt. I still love many of your appetizers (and the great bread pudding...please do NOT change that!!) and will order those in the future.

    The liver and onion lunch special piqued both our interests- we both got it-- it was huge! Great meat, great mashed Pot and steamed veggies-- but the gravy's consistency was think, lumpy, just TOO MUCH for the richness of the meat. Needed to be scraped off, and then the plate just looked so overwhelmingly DARK and viscous. The gravy's flavor was really great. But the consistency was not pleasant.
