This was a nice lunch experience. I've been to Cap City multiple times. This wasn't the best trip, but certainly wasn't bad. Nothing was really wrong. I didn't love our table, I didn't love our server, I didn't love my sandwich. It was perfectly fine, but nothing to write home about.

This place is always great! Great food, energetic atmosphere, wonderful service. We had a group of seven, and service was seamless and smooth. The menu gets updated periodically, and yet there are always some wonderful regular items. I had the Thanksgiving dinner sandwich - the first time I’ve had it - and it was superb!

Food is always been good and tastes fresh. This time, the fish (of fish-n-chips) was a bit greasier than I remember and not as crispy. Restaurant had just opened for dinner so maybe that was the problem. Waitress seemed to be having a bad day (or just decided 2 old women wouldn't tip very well....which we usually do!)). Other than that, perfect! Meatloaf and rolls wonderful!

I was disappointed for the very first time......I almost always get the Romana Encrusted Chicken & it wasn't good.......it is always just perfect. The waiter took it back & the chef made it right for me. (but have to admit, the sauce still seemed a bit off).

Great diner, comfort food at it's best. Convenient location near OSU campus. The meatloaf was very good. Next time I'll have the fried chicken. Desserts are plenty for 4 people.

The food was great and the service was excellent but we were one of the first in the restaurant and got the worst table in the place. My 80 year old parents were with us and we were seated in front of the very drafty door. I wanted a much better table.

Menu has loads of dining options. Everything from salads, shrimp, sandwich’s and hot plates. Their desserts are to die for! Seating is comfortable and service is typically attentive. I have never been disappointed in anything I’ve ordered from here. Their lox and bagel dish is plentiful. Hamburgers huge!

My group and really enjoyed our luncheon at Cap City diner and everyone enjoyed their food. Our server was great. She provided a list of vegetarian options to the group when requested, took a picture of the group and was very friendly. The only reason I did not give this visit 5 stars is because she brought our bills to the table before everyone had finished eating, so some of us felt that we were being rushed out of the restaurant. All in all, I will visit Cap City Diner again.

Cap City Grandview is and has always been a great place to enjoy good food with friends in a casual dining atmosphere. Our experience, this time, was just like previous ones... consistently-good service of unique twists on comfort food in a comfortable atmosphere. Is and likely always will be one of my favorites.

The quality of the dish I order nearly every time I ate here has changed. Perhaps it's the supplier? The pork chop is nowhere near as good both in terms of the taste and the tenderness.

They did a great job in having our table ready and were willing to seat us even though most of our party did not arrive for another half hour! The salmon is the best in Columbus! Everyone loved their food. Unfortunately they get one ding for not great service, but the girl we had was working a double shift, so I'm certain she was tired! We had a lot of trouble getting water refills. The food is always outstanding. Noise level very bad though. Not a great place if you want to talk across the table. It requires raised voices to be heard.

We had the reservation for 7pm and the staff made every attempt to honor that time. They were in a bind because a large scheduled party did not leave at the expected time. The staff were on top of the issue and even though there were patrons who did not appreciate the situation, the staff never wavered. We got our table at 7:20. Hats off to the entire crew on shift. I will definitely come back and highly recommend this restaurant.

Started off our date night with dinner and dessert and couldn't have been more pleased with the results. the 24k Carrot Cake is beyond description. I think the 24k stands for 24,000 calories; but I will have it again! The signature meatloaf is simply perfect. The Romano Crusted Fried Chicken with angel hair pasta was outrageously good. Service was top notch too. We will be back soon.
