I was very pleased with Capo. It is much bigger than the photos depict, but when I asked to sit near the fireplace, they moved us without fuss. The food was excellent and the service was great. And I was amazed that there was live music in the basement level. Loved the experience. Coming form NH, it was worth the drive. Getting there and parking is difficult, but we were glad we made the effort. More

Amazing food & service. Country fried steak & eggs was amazing, but I haven't had collards that good since I was a kid. Also shout out of server for bringing us two types of hot sauce to add to our (already great) bloody mary pitcher. More

Party of 5, business dinner w clients. 7:15pm reservation. Staff was amazing, was able to pivot with little notice to bring us a champagne toast. We decided wanted to share dishes so we could try everything we liked and they adapted to serve us family style. Definitely a great pace that we’ll be returning to. More

The only reason I did not give 5 stars overall is because we had an issue with our reservation. The parking lot is very small / was full & we had to find street parking which was not as easy as we hoped. We arrived 5 minutes late for our noon reservation & were told we would have to wait 15 minutes because they had given our table away (even though I had called to say we would be late). We ended up just sitting at the bar. Food was delicious, brunch cocktails all looked great but customer service was lacking. More
