    Wonderful classic restaurant. We are so glad that this great Marin restaurant has survived all of these years. Highly recommend for the wonderful views and terrific food. The presentations are works of art.

    Two words: tiny food. I've been going to the Caprice every few years since around 1992, and they've obviously decided to go further upscale to the point of the main course being smaller than the average appetizer, but on a artsy plate with lots of interesting garnish. How about a nice robust meal like they used to have?

    The Caprice has always been a great restaurant, especially because the staff is just outstanding! Friendly, extremely knowledgeable about the food and wine! They cater to what you want and of course the views are spectacular. We always LOVE to take our out of town guests here!

    We had a very enjoyable evening at Caprice. The room and views are outstanding, the service was perfectly attentive and the noise level was very low. We found the menu to be quite interesting and the food was good. Many of the dishes are interesting and quite complex to prepare. Hats off to the chef for bringing this level of sophistication to an otherwise sleepy restuarant town. Our only complaint was that the portions were on the small side. While we prefer smaller "European-sized" portions, we left feeling a bit empty, particularly given the menu pricing. The price was in the special occasion category - a meal for two with appetizers, dessert and a modest bottle of wine was just under $300 inclusive of gratuity.

    Everything was great. The only surprise of the night was that they changed the menu from a tasting menu to mostly a la carte. The tasting was limited to 5 and 7 courses, which would be more food than even a linebacker could eat. The food and service and view were excellent, just felt a little disappointed in the menu change - I'd loved the freedom of the former menu, being able to try so many things for a fairly decent price. But it's worth every penny - a great place for a celebration or romantic date. Can't recommend it enough.

    I am a foodie and love restaurants with unusual cuisine. I don't mind paying the price. I frequent Gary Danko, Domaine Chandon, Parcel 104, La Foret, Lark Creek and other fine restaurants. The Caprice was a major disappointment. The food was not good and very small portions. Risotto had too much lemon. Crab Benedict had not flavor. The sauce was not good. My nephew had a salad which was very small and an embarrassment. I made the reservations for Mother's Day and expected a special event. We were all hungry afterwards and my mother who is 90 ate snacks all afternoon afterwards.We all did I was very disappointed and embarrassed that I selected this restaurant. The only saving grace was the spectacular view, but certainly not worth it.

    Great restaurant! Would highly recommend. Beautiful view, but the loudness of some of the groups made the night a little less romantic. My wife and I loved the flavors of the dishes and the service was good. My only wish with the service would be that they described what was on the dish. With so many courses (We had 5), you start to forget what exactly you ordered.. Thanks!

    This is one restaurant that gives both a fabulous view AND excellent food. My only complaint about the food is that there was not enough of it; I left there hungry after a 3 course prix fixe meal.

    We did not like the new menu. It was like that commercial with elf food. For the price we felt the sizes were too small. My lamb dish had just four one inch cubes of lamb on the dish. My cheese course had a very small piece of cheese. The flavors were good but I just don't think I'd come back. They are serving small plates like they are regular menu items and charging $56 for 3 plates. They need to adjust prices and go to a small plates format or return to the old format of appetizers, mains and dessert. So I doubt I would return. That's too bad because I have loved Caprice for many years.

    Food was a little small, I had the 5 course and still was kinda hungry after, was dissapointed that my lamb dish only had 2 tiny peices of lamb. Guess I should have ordered the 6 or 7 course or eaten more bread or something.
