  • that's walleye?
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    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.

    This is one of my wife's go-to choices. I can't complain. The meatloaf is always a solid choice. Switch up the potatoes to their Cheddar Chipotle potatoes and you have a winner.

    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
    Bluedog
    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.

  • Liver&Onions: No Thick Gravy Pls!
    Cleveland53
    Dined on 10/8/2014
    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.

    It was a Friday night. Two of us had eaten at Cap City previously, two had not. Everyone had something different. Around the table the Friday special Crab Cakes; Fried Fish and French Fries with Slaw; Famous Meatloaf Dinner, and Romano Crusty Chicken. The men ate everything, the two women carried home tomorrow's lunch. Each left happy and content. Definitely will return. Food and service ...both excellent!

    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.
