My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful evening, so much so that we intend to host our annual dinner party at Cape Dutch - amazing filet and swordfish.

From the apps of sweet potato, fried lobster and scallops, to the main entrees Seabass, filet, and whole branzino, to amazing berry sorbet to a lovely selection of pinotage, everything about this meal was perfect. Our server, Cord, was colorful and helpful. Big fans!! Already made multiple recommendations to friends visiting. Will be back.

We enjoyed our experience at Cape Dutch. All entrees and sides that were ordered were delicious. I wish the menu had a few more selections it was somewhat limited. The noise level was moderate but closer to a little noisy but we were still able to have a conversation. Service was outstanding. The ambience was comfortable but not very colorful.

This was my first time at Cape Dutch which is a south African steakhouse. The food, service and atmosphere were all exceptional!. We tried the steak, lobster, mushroom pasta and a couple desserts as well and everything was delicious.the restaurant doesn’t get busy till later. There is a really cozy bar and lounge area in the front of the restaurant to get some drinks.

Hosted a dinner here for work for a group of eight. The service was great, and some of our group had a great time sitting at the bar before dinner too. The server made excellent sharing choices before the meal and all of our meals came out in great time and tasted fantastic. Would definitely use this place again for future dinners.

Whenever I get to Atlanta, Cape Dutch is always on my list. We brought friends and the restaurant did not disappoint. Chef Philippe changes his menu seasonally and we got to taste some new dishes. The mussels and Spinach and Arugula salad are always wonderful starters but we also tries the fried baby lobster tails and the kefta. They were terrific, too! The lobster risotto, short ribs and sea bass are great and you can't go wrong with the elk chop. Very nice dinner!

Trendy yet inviting décor, cozy bar and lounge area and expansive dining room. Great menu with a host of items. The whole branzino fish was amazing. The sea bass was good but not great. The panna cotta was excellent. I was hoping for more South African wines on the wine list. Overall, its a great spot for dinner with friends or a date night. I would return.

I look for a different Five Star restaurant every year for our anniversary. There are so many places in town that have exceptional food, but not the five star quality service. Cape Dutch DOES! A fully five star restaurant understands that "Dining" is an experience, not just a process of feeding yourself. There is time to relax, to converse, to savor the flavors that are expertly fashioned, without the pressure to hurry up and free up the table for the next customer. Our server, Alex was knowledgeable, patient, and had excellent suggestions. I had the Bone in Rib-eye steak that was equal to the best steak I've ever tasted! Bravo to the chefs! Even though I look for different restaurants each year, we will likely return to Cape Dutch for other occasions.

Service lacked luster. Servers weren’t able to anticipate needs. Appreciative of the complimentary dessert for my girlfriend birthday. However, anyone dinning at this price point isn’t coming for a free dessert. I dine out for experience and return for excellent service. Maybe my expectations were higher based on what heard of the dinning experience here and with the restaurant group. It was overall an ok experience.

This is the second restaurant I’ve been to in Atlanta that claims to serve authentic South African cuisine, I would agree with this whereas the other one I have been to prior was a little more creative.
Overall, good food and service...completely different to how the restaurant is shown on Atlanta Eats television show. Dined here on a Tuesday night. Valet attendant could be a bit more personable so that one could get a cozier feeling prior to handing over the keys to a $140k car.
Bottle of wine we requested was not available so an alternative was offered. We were not made aware that we were going to be charged $20 more for the alternative bottle, but yet we were informed that we would be charged $4 more for extra bread to soak up the broth that the mussels were soaking in. Again, gladly paid the upcharge, but it would be a common courtesy to let one know the difference in price of wine bottles...what if it was $100 more? I would not have known, the menus were already taken away.
Last, asked for the leftovers to be wrapped up including the remainder of the tomahawk. Every restaurant that offers a tomahawk cut will additionally wrap up the bone as it is a doggie favorite...Cape Dutch did not do this and by the time we got home to our dog we were disappointed the bone was not in the bag. I am not going to check a doggie bag to make sure “it’s all in there...” just as one would before driving away from a drive thru line.
Overall I shall return to try some of the other signature items identified on the TV show but I will be sure to Uber; ask if there is an additional charge if offered alternatives; and check the doggie bag before leaving ;-)

I was excited about trying this restaurant but ended up extremely disappointed. The charcuterie was the best part of my meal. I ordered a Kansas City Strip that was inedible. The taste was awful, the meat was tough...i was told oh maybe because it was the end of the night ( no at 6pm it would have been just as bad) The elk my dinner companion got was delicious. For $200 I went home hungry. My waiter was great which is really the only reason why I rated the restaurant as high as I did.

It might be easy to become discouraged as you approach this restaurant because the streets leading to it are lined with strip clubs and massage parlors. once you enter the dining area however it is a revelation. Wonderful Ambience wonderful service and wonderful food.

We enjoyed our meal. My husband and I shared the spinach and arugula salad with goat cheese; he had the lamb which was excellent, and my Dover Sole was delicious. We then shared the passion fruit panda cotta for dessert, which was a creative presentation. The only thing we thought was lacking was that they don't serve bread. Otherwise, it was an outstanding meal.

The service was terrible. Our appetizer never came and when we notified the waiter of the issue, he didn’t bother to tell a manager or provide any remediation. After the mistake, the waiter seemed to lose interest in our table. The food was good, but due to the poor service, the experience was ruined.

Grilled peach salad with blue cheese and frisée salad with a honeysuckle drizzle and some sort of delicious ham? One of the best salads I have ever eaten...server (Reggie?) very knowledgeable about wine. We had an excellent Rosé from South Africa. My seabass was exquisite, so flavorful and cooked to perfection. My business partner’s oven roasted branzino was over cooked unfortunately. Dessert was phenomenal (see photo). Music was loud but mellowed later, great meal.

Second visit to this restaurant, first as a couple and second as a group of six of friends from a business group. Returned for excellent food and service, but didn't have the same service experience with the larger group. Service started slow and became forgotten. One diner ordered medium well steak and was given rare. When sent back to kitchen he did not receive the steak back until all diners had completed their meal and was brought back in a to-go box. We were hosting and treating the Group to a dinner ticket of nearly $1,000 so very disappointed to have a negative experience for our guests. Would return as a couple, but hesitant to reserve for a group or business dinner.
