Watermelon carpaccio and heirloom tomato salad app was excellent, but that was the high point of the meal. The ribeye was ok, but not exceptional for the price. The brussel sprouts were a soggy mess, not caramelized as described. The chocolate cake was dry and oddly paired with apples. They had none of their advertised coravin specialty wines. The service was robotic and impersonal. And with every dish, I had to remind the waiter that I had not received the glass of wine I’d ordered to pair with it, so each dish sat on the table waiting and getting cold. Overall, and underwhelming experience for a tab of $250 for two.

The food and service was great. The restaurant is very stylish. There was an interesting and unusual, but subtle use of herbs and spices. I was very impressed and I am difficult to impress.

Because of a business meeting in the area we dined much earlier than we normally would have so the restaurant was very quiet and early evening sun very bright. Our server was terrific and his suggestions were excellent! Would come back to Cape Dutch.

I was so impressed. It was the best fish dish I ever had (Sea Bass) and the most delicious asparagus from Burgundy. The Chef, Philippe, came out to speak to us, and gave us wonderful recommendations for the new menu. Amazing experience.

Date night with my wife. Always great food and attentive service at Cape Dutch. The staff is very friendly, the food is delicious, and the atmosphere fantastic. Cape Dutch is one of the top choices for our rotational adult only night out meals.

Whenever I come into Atlanta, Cape Dutch is on my list of restaurants to visit. My husband always has the mussels and I like the varied seasonal items that Chef Phillippe adds to the menu. Wednesday night was the first night of their new seasonal menu and it did not disappoint! Always a wonderful evening!

Cape Dutch is a quaint place and would be good for a date or an outing with friends. Although I did not take my children, I get the impression that it is likely not the most kid-friendly place. The food was good with very unique entrée and ingredient choices. We tried many and varying menu options and enjoyed everything we tried. If I have any negative complaints it would be with the level of service. Perhaps it was our server, or perhaps just a bad night for our server, but we found the communication and general short term Interaction to be awkward and somewhat uninviting. Although I would go back for the food, the service leaves something to be desired. And with the myriad restaurant choices in the metro Atlanta area, I Believe this restaurant is worth a try but likely not a second visit.

I love the food of course but the vibe is equally important for a restaurant. We came here for a family member's birthday. They really took care of us throughout the night from drink recommendations (definitely try their aviation, even if you're not a gin fan) to dinner menu suggestions. I had the braised beef short rib and it was so tender! They were thoughtful to send a complimentary dessert - one of the best bread puddings I've ever tasted. Overall, it was a truly memorable experience!

Cape Dutch is one of our favorite places to go. You wouldn't think to order a burger there but we were told how amazing they are and now we always order at least one for the table to split. It is one of our fav places for special occasions and to take guests. Food is all outstanding. LOVE LOVE LOVE the mussels! The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is this time we had a server with no personality and he was not very attentive. He did pick up that were celebrating a birthday and at the end of the meal he brought a dessert with a candle in it. We thought that was a nice gesture but then HE PUT IT ON OUR CHECK!!! We will definitely continue to go to Cape Dutch but would not want him as a server. We have had Anthony in the past and he is awesome!!

While most restaurants are too noisy to allow pleasant conversation, Cape Dutch has enough energy to prevent hearing other tables while enabling conversation among your party. They add excellent service, interesting and beautifully presented cuisine and an attractive space. Our group was well satisfied with every aspect of the evening

What a great experience we all had at dinner. The service was excellent and very attentive. The food was awesome. We tried a few apps first and then moved on the the main courses. I had the porcini ravioli and it was extremely tasty. The server recommended a Pinotage wine that totally lived up to his expectations. Well done all around!!

We enjoyed our night here but it wasn’t remarkable. The food was fine the waiter was fine.....well, it was just fine. Because all of the restaurants want clean lines and an open concept, it is a typical modern venue that when it’s full it’s too loud. (I think it is very nicely decorated and beautiful farmhouse modern by the way) We were seated in the back and they have tables with bench seating paired with a chair. The bench is too high for the table and it’s a bit uncomfortable and I’m not tall. I would suggest to ask for alternative seating if they place you there.

First time there. Had a very good experience. Food was very well prepared. I especially liked the trio dessert that offered you to try 3 different desserts. Valet parking was a plus. Didn't realize it is the former Wood Fire Grill until I pulled up. Give it a try, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

We started with the Kefta, words cannot even describe the deliciousness! The meatballs had just he right amount of moisture and the flavors were very complex. My husband got the Tomahawk Veal and I had the Ahi Tuna, they were both done perfectly. I also got a side of the spinach souffle that was absolutely fabulous.
I had a glass of the South African Shiraz that was quite tasty as well. It was a very nice touch that the chef came to our table and spoke with us.
The service was a little slow at first, once we ordered the food was pretty quick. Our waiter was just a bit robotic.

Our server was very inattentive. Wine not poured, dishes constantly left on the table when the next course was served. I had to ask for water when we had three empty glasses on the table with only two people seated. The food was excellent as usual but the service was not up to the standard.

The food was ok, but the service I received was terrible. I had to ask other waiters for service I needed at my table. This was my first time going to the restaurant, It was the night before Valentines Day. I did ask for the manager, but all I got was unsympathetic response. I will never go there again.
