  • "We came to celebrate our anniversary and we expected to have a nice quiet dinner with music on background. Instead of we had a bunch of drunk LOL screaming inappropriate words. So, thank you for ruined dinner!"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "The menu has changed since we last dined at Cappy's. I ordered Scottish salmon, mashed potatoes and vegetables. The selection was served in a pasta or soup bowl, stacked on top of each other with the salmon being on top. I couldn't cut the salmon as it was emersed in the potatoes which were watery because of liquid from the salmon and vegetables. I gave up aafter 3 or 4 bites and went home hungry. Expensive meal to leave uneaten."

  • "Finding a restaurant in San Antonio where the variety of dishes and culinary quality are at this level is a rare thing indeed. I took my wife there for our anniversary and the experience was outstanding. The staff was attentive and prompt. The manager was accommodating and conscientious. The decor was pleasant, and the chef was phenomenal. The menu was diverse and sophisticated, with a comfort quality to it. Great balance. Please check this spot out! You will NOT regret it!"

  • "What a great birthday lunch! My chicken salad with fresh fruit and mango gelatin was absolutely delicious, and my husband's steak was excellently executed-cooked perfectly, with frites that were the real thing. The special bread also made it hard to leave room for dessert, but we managed-an outstanding chocolate cake with ice cream! James was very attentive and made sure everything was special. We can hardly wait to return for a romantic dinner!!!"

  • "Thanks to our OpenTable reservation, we were seated immediately in a thoughtful area for our party of six. Our waiter was patient and friendly and allowed us to take our time and enjoy a pleasant evening meal with our out of town guests. The food was especially delicious and our guests were so pleased that they commented that Cappy's is their favorite place for dinner when they visit."

  • "Cappys has continuously evolved with time to continue its wonderful culinary offerings. Pot Roast and burgers are wonderfully savory and a favorite. Their seafood offerings are prepared to perfection! And their salads are always pleasantly fresh. Of course their signature chocolate cake and the bountiful dessert offerings are always a nice way to end the meal. Aside from the meal, the service and ambiance just completes the whole experience. Highly recommended and very accomodating for gluten free alongside other dietary restrictions."

  • "We celebrated our 17th anniversary at Cappy's over Memorial Day Weekend. When we arrived, the hostess had a very nice table ready for us and greeted us with a "Happy Anniversary" which I thought was very sweet. The waitress did the same, brought us an appetizer and dessert on the house to wish us a special day and was so kind and thoughtful. The food was fantastic, the service was superb, the wine was wonderful. This is a such a neat place because while the food and service were top notch, it's very cozy and comfortable. There is a very friendly atmosphere here, nothing stuffy or formal about it. Next time we are in San Antonio, we will be back!!!"

  • "This was our first time at Cappy's but was meeting friends from out of town for Brunch. Daughter has recommended the brunch and it lived up to everything she had said. Our guests were impressed, our service was wonderful, the food was great. I love the way the restaurant is nestled back in the very colorful buildings. Weather did not permit on day we were there but would imagine the outside seating would be great."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Very nice menu selection with regular, fresh specials. Very good wine selection. Best part is that you know you will always have great choices, moderately priced, and always creative specials along with the regular menu favorites--"

  • "We know that when we are looking for a special dinner, especially if it's a nice night for eating outside, Cappy's is the place to go. The food is always wonderful, and so is the service. It's definitely high-end without being outrageously priced. The portions are just right -- not so much that you overstuff yourself, but not the tiny dabs of food some fancy restaurants present. There's always something a bit original but not weird, so you know you're getting something different but not taking a big chance that you'll hate it. The waitstaff is knowledgeable and friendly without trying to become your best friend."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "Dishes (a variety of meats and fish) all were quite good. Caution on being sure to understand what is might by medium rare, or medium well. Very nice ambiance. Staff was very friendly and very knowledgeable on the food. "

  • "We have loved dining at Cappy's for years, and often go for anniversaries, birthdays, etc. It is an exceptional restaurant in terms of food, service, and ambience. However, our last visit there was a little less so in terms of our meal. My husband's steak (ordered medium) was very rare and not very good, according to him. I had the scallops, which I had enjoyed there before, and they were a little chewy - not the usual perfection! Our server was excellent, very nice and available, but not hovering over us. All in all, we enjoyed it as usual, just a little disappointed in the food this time. "
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "I've been wanting to dine at the restaurant for a long time, so we decided to try it out to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We were a party of five and all enjoyed our entrees. Three of us ordered the halibut and salmon, which was very flavorful and cooked perfect. The food is good quality and tasted very fresh. They were also accomodating in customizing an entree for my daughter due to dietary restrictions. The waiter was very attentive and we received our food in a timely manner. Not much of an ambience though, so not a good choice for romantic dining."

  • "Cappy's had the feel of a local eatery; not a tourist crowd. It was not in the tourist area...a little removed from downtown! We had seafood dishes for dinner and amazing salads! We will definitely return to this establishment when we're back in San Antonio!"

  • "Cappy's dining room is simple. Lovely white tablecloths, wood floors, large windows. The food was fabulous. We started with the shrimp and Brussel sprouts appetizer. Large serving enough to split and good value for $10. My husband had the lamb which he really enjoyed, i had the gumbo which was a twist on traditional gumbo but the star meal was the scallops on a special mash of potatoes, plantain and duck fat. "

  • "A gem of a restaurant in the heart of an historic section of San Antonio; service is wonderful thanks to terrifically attentive staff. The selections on the menu have never disappointed; Chef has a knack for winning combinations and outstanding, flavourful meals...especially like the local vegetables that are presented on every plate. Celebrated Mother's Day with halibut and swordfish...amazing meal from start to finish. Highly recommend Cappy's for any occasion!"

  • "I saw Cappy's in a magazine of the best places to eat in SA.Mother's Day was the occasion but made the reservation for the prior friday evening. It was,my wife,two girls(15 and 9),my mom,dad and I. Jake was our waiter, he was amazing. Recommended a bottle of wine for my mom and I that was perfect, brought my dad his crown on the rocks religiously. Ordered the shrimp/pablano nachos- Outstanding. We had prime rib, halibut, NY Strip, lamb,--Amazing. The flavor profiles on the sides were explosions in your mouth. The Mac and cheese the girls had with their steak was a hit. Had a few different desserts served-Coconutpie,chocolate cake,and bread pudding.All amazing.The port was perfect.Awesome service and the food was worth every bit of the dime."
