I made an online reservation however when I arrived they had no record of it. I showed them the confirmation from my smartphone but I don't think it was necessary because they never doubted my word. The hostesses were apologetic and told me they were honoring my reservation. They seated me almost immediately. My wife and I have been to this location several times so we know what to expect as the quality and consistency is always high. We had a great sever, Bennett. She was friendly, prompt and professional. My only suggestion would be to have some specials not on the menu as I find the selection to be limited.

Great Father's Day Dinner
Although the restaurant was extremely busy and people were waiting outside, I had made reservations of course so that wasn't a problem. My father beat me there and grabbed a beer at the bar, his only complaint was that it was a little pricey. I had the balsamic chicken as I always do and it was extremely delicious, my father said the same about his pork chops. My dad had never been to Cap City and said it was definitely somewhere he'd return.

Father's Day Brunch
Asked Dad where he'd like to go, this is where he chose. Very loud inside, felt like I had to shout to others at my table, but other than that, great food. My first time here for brunch. Dad was happy with his fish and chips, I liked my salmon, hubby liked his diner steak and eggs. Calamari is wonderfully prepared. And the bleu cheese chips are fantastic.

Good Food Good Time!
We had a party of 11 and appreciated the good service. I like the variety on the menu and my meal (fish & chips) was delicious, even down to the little things like the tartar sauce.
6/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Was very pleased with all of the service while celebrating me & my husbands birthday. The food was delicious, & our waiter was very good. Was very impressed with the complimentary desert that we got, & so very good.

OK for a Saturday night
On a very busy Saturday night, our entrees actually came out before our salads. On one hand they were apologetic, on the other hand it seemed that they were trying to rush us through our meal. The food was delicious and ample in portions. I enjoyed my leftovers more the next day than I did at the restaurant.
6/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
great food, attentive service
Saturday night was a little crazy as it normally is. But once we got seated our server was attentive and the manager came over to make sure we were taken care of. Food was very good. Love the gluten-free calamari. The crab cake was very meaty. All entrees were spot-on.

The pecan crusted pork chops are delicious, arriving with spinach cooked and flavored just right.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pecan crusted tilapia salad was incredible. Philly Steak sandwich was good.

Great Brunch Spot!
I had brunch with some friends and had a great time! My only gripe would be the array of empty glassware on the table the delay on water refills but overall I was very pleased!

Cap City is a Must!
Cap City employees work hard to please their customers. They are attentive, knowledgeable & friendly to everyone, including children. We LOVE it there for all sorts of occasions or just for no reason at all.

First time at the restaurant and the food was excellent, the prices were reasonable and the service was excellent. Would definitely return for another dinner. Nice variety on the menu. Open table reservation was very easy to use. Would use the service again.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is one of our local favorites. The quality of the food and service is always outstanding. I like the fact that you can always order the smaller lunch size portion at any time of day.

We visited Cap City Diner and Bar for a birthday celebration for my mother who turned 79. The food was great, and we were all able to visit without having to shout to be heard. Everyone had a great experience. Our server, Danny, did a good job, and everyone was pleased. Even though this was not my first time at Cap City, it was for several in our party. They came away impressed.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. Good service....good food and reasonable prices..... This time for lunch I had the Reuben sandwich... Prepared perfectly and a generous portion.... They lays accommodate our special dietary needs and gluten free issues. Thanks for another wonderful experience.

Great Service and Food to Match
The service was excellent... I had a reservation, and despite being very crowded, they seated me immediately. Danny, my waiter, was excellent. Very attentive, but not overbearing. Fried chicken was fantastic.

We always have great food when we go to Cap City. We have never been disappointed.

Diner Food/Grwat Selection
I had a strip steak with roasted vegetables, and cheddarspicy mashed potatoes.
The steak was med. rare per my request but lacked a good char/grill marks. It was not well seasoned. The vege's were good too but lacked seasoning.
The spicy mashed potatoes were very tasty but were a bit solidified.
Not bad for $25.00 but missed some basic touched Taft would have improved the experience quitea bit.
Cream brûlée was tasty, could have been cooler. My request for light carmelization was achieved.
Had 2 glasses of Cab. One at $8.50 and one @ $10.50.
Good but not great for the price.
Overall I like Cap City Diner. Someone needs to look at some missed basics to improve the experience.

really good food
Everything our group of five ordered was good. I personally ordered from the gluten free menu and had the harvest salad and loved it. I was pleasantly surprised that they had gluten free dinner rolls and I was even able to have dessert. Thank you Cap City for a great girls night out.

Always very good and flavorful
Always very good and flavorful food. Never a dissapointment. Had the linguini for the first time. Almost the best yet but the pork chops always win that category.

Meatloaf is amazing!!
We had visited Cap City for a lunch outing through work and it was a great little get away for lunch. The service was fast and quick and the food was amazing. I had the meatloaf after hearing they are supposed to have the best of the best and it lived up to it's name. Very delicous!
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Cap City Diner has the art of cooking down to a science. Food here never fails to hit the mark and in 11 years of coming here I cannot remember once having to send food back because of poor quality.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great - as always
Cap City never dissapoints. Our food was perfect. The matag chips are always my favorite. Our server was really great and even put up with our obnoxious behavior :) I'd recommend Cap City again and again and again.

We were surprised by the outstanding service we received from every person we encountered. Our waitress was the best I've ever had and I have traveled the world. The GM was friendly and attentive. Food was great. All in all it was a great time
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
love cap city
Cap City is one of my favorite restaurants in town. I typically go to the one in Grandview, however I ended up in Gahanna and decided to try this location. The service was great and the server was willing to adjust my food preferences so that the meal was the way that I wanted it rather than the only way the restaurant would fix it. The pulled pork is incredible as are the dr pepper beans.
The new fall drink menu is great and the apple moonshine martini is awesome. Will go back to either location.

Fun Family B-Day Night
6 of us (4 adults 2 kids under 11) had a fun dinner at Cap City for a 64th birthday and retirement celebration. Food was tasty but slightly below expectations set at Grandview location. Pork chop was slightly dry, Balsamic Chicken not quite as vibrant, but the desserts were as delicious as ever. We all left well satisfied. We did wish they had a better beer selection on tap but they're cocktail menu is great and we had a good time.

My husband and I chose Cap City for our date night. The food was delicious and the service was great. We were looking for an evening to dine together, talk, and enjoy good food. Perfect place for our that.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
A lovely place to eat and talk
A classic diner feel with excellent food. Cap City never disappoints. Unique twists to favorites in an inviting atmosphere with an accommodating staff make for a great experience every time.

My brother was visiting from out of town and I was looking was a restaurant that isn't a chain.... to take him somewhere special and memorable. He loved Cap City Diner and wants to take his wife here the next time they are in town.
11/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fantastic food and service
I love Cap City Diner I have a friend from out of town that has to go to Cap City every time she is in town. We were there yesterday and everytime we both get the Very Wild Rice Salad. Yesterday the waiter asked if he could do anything else my friend said "Get me the recipe for this salad and he said sure. We both looked at each other and our mouths dropped. Soon he came back with the recipe. He even told us the name of the wild rice they use.
The food as always was wonderful and the wait staff is always great but yesterday extra special.

Off the beaten path
I would never have guessed the restaurant was within the strip mall area at the corner of Morse Rd & Hamilton Rd.. Unless you are familiar with the area, it doesn't stand out and I had to drive throught the whole complex just to find it and almost missed it. This location didnt have a line and the noise level was better than the other location. Service was great! The server was attentive, didn't hover but didn't ignore us either. Offered recommendations. Food was yummy as usual!
12/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
First Time at Cap City
This was my first time to visit Cap City and I really enjoyed it. We were there for lunch and it was a nice atmosphere to dine and catch up with old friends. The food was excellent as was our server. The four of us enjoyed every moment of our time there. I think we were the last 'lunchers' to leave! Not a thing to complain about!
Thanks for a great dining experience.

Great place to dine
The food and service are excellent--and being a neighborhood spot, you don't always have to dress up to eat well! Fantastic!!
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
SIMPLY FANTASTIC EVERY SINGLE TIME!
Thank you for making my 51st birthday awesome and thank you so much for the generous dessert! The Big Cup of Chocolate was totally amazing and that is coming from the gal that normally prefers another salty something. Took home leftovers of dessert and warmed it up in the toaster oven and ate in luxury a 2nd time! Thanks again!
