A word from Caprese, A Mediterranean Grill
Enjoy a taste of a contemporary interpretation of the Mediterranean by Caprese. Step inside our calm and warm colored dining room to experience a menu that uses traditional ingredients and cuisine from the Mediterranean and delivers them to you in a way that you cannot find anywhere else in Old
You can still find your favorite traditional dishes like the Caprese salad, but reinterpreted with a creamy burrata mozzarella cheese. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can try entrees that take ingredients from throughout the Mediterranean and deliver a flavor you will want to try over and over again.

The flatbread pizza was very good.
The flatiron steak however was overcooked and not flavorful at all."

This restaurant is part of a
hotel. It was not what we expected. We waited until last minute to make a reservation for Valentines day dinner for 4 so we did not have many options. The restaurant is attached to the Embassy Suites in Alexandria. The food was only okay and too expensive to be only okay. The place was practically empty and we were waiting for at least 30 min before a waiter came over to us. After the waiter took our order another waitress came in his place and she was much more attentive. Dessert was very good. Overall it was not awful but it was not great however I would not recommend it."

I went for Alexandria restaurant
week and for a 3 course meal for $35 it was a very good deal. I had ordered a bottle of wine for the table that doubled the bill and was surprised when I had to ask for it again. The waiter was very attentive besides replacing silverware that he cleared. Also was a bit disappointed that the candle I requested to come with desert on Open table was not fufilled."

The restaurant was difficult to
get into because of the cold temperatures all the outside entrances were locked. We had to walk to the hotel entrance to get in. The food was a disappointment. We had steak which was okay but had been smothered in brown gravy that tasted like the powdered mix- way too salty. We also ordered a jambalaya. It tasted okay, however it tasted nothing like jambalaya. It was bland and tasted more like tomato paste with bell peppers."

Ingredients were not of good
quality (especially meat). Seasoning was bland. Nice decorations, but wouldn't return. Really bad cheesecake."

Had a nice, reasonably priced and
good meal at Caprese during Restaurant Week. Service was a bit disjointed and slow, however. Not sure if servers were also handling the much larger bar area on the other side of the wall."

It was a little hard finding the
location since it was right next door to the Embassy Suites, actually it was inside the Embassy but you can't see it from Diagnol Rd because the main entrance is inside the foyer but besides that the service was horrible. It took a little too long for me to get the food and it wasn't that busy but they had a big party there and they mostly catered to this group. The selection was mediocre because it was restaurant week, so since I went because of that I had only a couple of choices. Me and my date had the steak. Mine was ok, but pretty much flavorless besides the taste of char from the grill but it lacked seasoning. My date's steak was not cooked properly. Probably wont return."

The restaraunt was okay, the
ambiance and setting was nice and had good space For old town. We got there and no one was there to attend to us so we had to wander around looking for a waiter or service person that wasnt chatting with someone else. They appeared to be clueless about our reservation and stuck us at a table, even though i had specific requests noted in the reserveration to sit outdoors. I asked and theu easily let it happen. I expected the outdoors to be nicer and the service be more attentive. The food that i personally ordered, i regret. I admit maybe it was just not my type of food and shouldve ordered a salad instead but im sure the food overall was fine for everyone else. In all, i wouldve picked a different restarunt."

I have seen the sign for the
restaurant, but wasn't sure if it was only outdoor dining. Glad I took and chance and tried it! The server was excellent and, at a table of 6 diners, all of the food was delicious! It is somewhat confusing as to where to enter the restaurant from the street. There should be a designated entrance from the outside and a sign clearly posted above that entrance."

The food and drinks were excellent
and the service was exceptional. We went for our anniversary dinner and have zero complaints. We will definitely be coming back again!"

No intimate dining here. It's
separated from the covered atrium and bar by a screen, but it's still noisy. The food is pretty good, but the waiters disappeared a couple of times."

It was the only restaurant I could
find not too far from King St metro that could accommodate a group of 9 (with about 6 day's notice). The ambiance is pretty good for a hotel restaurant, and the restaurant wasn't very busy. I thought it was over-priced (not surprising for a restaurant in a hotel) for what you got."

Fred, our waiter made the day. He
was attentive, knowledgeable and just down right nice. We ate outside on a Sunday morning. Would not recommend the inside...way too noisy and hotelly. Food was excellent. Would definitely return and sit in the patio and enjoy the fountain and food. Fred made an excellent wine suggestion as well."

ambiance, conveniently located near King Street Metro."

Caprese provided a very pleasant
experience. The glass wine and spinach salad were very good. Steak and pizza were more ordinary. Service was very pleasant but occasionally slow. Ambience was lively without being distracting. A solid effort for a hotel restaurant."

When we arrived at the restaurant
it had been raining pretty steadily. The manager told us that service would be slow because so many hotel guests decided to eat at the hotel that evening instead of venturing out into Old Town. We appreciated his candor and decided to stay. We sat on the covered patio, which overlooks a courtyard and fountain. This would be a great place to sit on sunnier days, but it was fine on a rainy day, too. The manager was our waiter and took good care of us. He immediately brought us pita and hummus and filled our water glasses. We ordered a bottle of wine and two entrees. My husband had a pasta dish, which was okay, and I had the beef kabob, which was cooked perfectly and served on tabouleh with cucumber sauce."
