    I took my niece to Cap City for lunch prior to taking her downtown to a show. I thought it would be a nice place to go and get some good food. I can only speak to my meal. I had the ribs, which I thought would be grilled, they were not. They basically tasted like they'd been boiled and some cheap barbeque sauce thrown on top. The jalepeno cole slaw was pretty bland also. The wait staff was very nice and checked on us regularly, but the food, especially at that price, left a lot to be desired. I was pretty disappointed.

    Experienced our first Cap City brunch recently, it was fabulous! Cap City is such a "gem", and having such a great brunch selection just added to it! The food was awesome, the service is wonderful! We love sitting close to the kitchen so we could watch the hussle and bussle of food plates being executed by staff & executive chef! Thanks for such a great experience, we'll be back!!

    I returned to CCD after being out of the Columbus area for several years. The food was as good as I remembered (and the chips with blue cheese were wonderful!), and the service was OK. The only problem was that I was there with two friends, and I had a hard time hearing them across the table. The place was really noisy, even though it wasn't particularly crowded.

    This was far from my first trip to Cap City, but it was my first trip with special dietary requirements. My dinner date suffers from Celiac disease, and required a completely gluten free meal. The gluten free menu, was ultimately what led us to choose Cap City. They have a decent amount of variety on the gluten free menu. I noted in my reservation that one of us would require a gluten free menu, but planned on requesting it once we were seated. After arrivingnand being seated, my dinner date informed the server that she needed the gf menu, but they had already noticed that in our reservation, and had it ready. The food is ALWAYS great,, but this attention to such an important detail, was as impressive as it was appreciated! Well done

    Cap city was nice place,friendly atmosphere, but the food didn't match the atmosphere/ community scene. The food was high end restaurant dining instead of good and wholesome. I would recommend it to people I know that like this type of dining experience, but I wouldn't return.

    We as a couple ate at Cap City Diner in Gahanna on Sunday evening, 9/28/14. The food was excellent. My complaint would be the noise level. It's not a place to expect to be able to converse easily. Way too noise for a relaxing evening of dining. But.....would go there again for the food! The server did not fill our request for a couple of things, i.e., water, rolls.

    The food was so good. You have to try the maytag blue cheese potato chips. The salmon with sticky rice with excellent. My daughter had the Romano crusted chicken. There were 3 large pieces of chicken and it was delicious! We can't wait to go back.

    We had a table for 4; one person did not receive a good dish, so we sent it back. The fried Chicken was burnt and it took a long time before he received a new plate. We were all done eating by the time it arrived. But it was better the second time. The restaurant was not crowded on a Sunday evening so not sure what took so long. The waitress offered us a free dessert for my husband's birthday, then forgot to bring it, so we asked for it and she gave it to us. Other than that the food was great!

    The pretzel appetizer is one of our favorites, however the pretzel was very dark in color and hard/stale. Tasted reheated. However the cheese dip for it and the blue cheese salmon salad is consistently delicious! The salmon is cooked to perfection and has to be some of the best around. The salad is always very fresh and good as well.

    We went to Cap City for a special occasion and chose this restaurant because of a particular dish. I am fond of the Balsamic Glazed Chicken and my mouth was watering just thinking of it! I was disappointed to find they had changed the dish. The breast meat was no longer used and was changed to the thigh (dark meat) and the skin was left on. Thus completely changed the taste of the dish. I felt that leaving the skin on did not allow the balsamic glaze to flavor the meat. Most people these days are not eating the skin to be healthy so that leaves the meat tasting like something at the church potluck. I also missed the crispy onions on top. I did find the spinach/peppers and the mashed potatoes just as wonderful as ever! Our server was great!

    My sister and hubby had picked up their son from Tucson, Az at the airport and met us there. They go to many Cols restaurants (and around the world) but had never been to this one. We all very much enjoyed the food and drinks. I had talked them into canceling reservations for a restaurant in Bexley so was very relieved they loved your restaurant and will no doubt visit it again.

    The service at Cap City left a lot to be desired. The food was hot and edible, yet the time for preparation was much longer than anticipated. The server was cordial, but was a little overwhelmed and didn't stop by the table frequently. It took a long time for refills and there was no indication of how far along the food prep was. While dining with a family of 5, the dining experience was not good for the varying ages to include a toddler.
