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.

Dining at Cape Dutch was a superb dining experience. Reggie, our waiter saw to it. He was friendly,
charming, very knowledgeable about the restaurant, it's food and it's history. WHAT A JOY!!!

The food was outstanding. Cooked to perfection.

I will highly recommend Cape Dutch to others and will certainly be back again.

Thank you.

Food was excellent, would go back just for the food. However, service was surprisingly below par relative to everything else: Entrees were served, but had to wait for steak knives; ordered the elk chop but was not asked how I wanted it (medium, etc.) while everyone else was asked; waiter forgets what he was asked; waitress was not aware they had cava, and was not sure what a sauvignon blanc was.

Good ambience and decor. Food was ok. Good concept but poor execution. Our mussels are the smallest I have ever had! Broth was good. The grilled bread that accompanied the dish was unfortunately stale. Grilled peaches were a letdown. The two peaches were underripe. Prosciutto that came with it was not of the highest grade. This place doesn’t offer refined gourmet fare fit for a foodie type cuisine. We are comparing it to the likes of Restaurant Eugene and Miller union. The prices are comparable however not the same caliber in terms of food and service. Cape Dutch is more laid back with youthful vibe. Very nice interior. We will not go back for food but maybe for chilling at the swanky and sexy bar area. Good selection of South African wine.

Went with my girlfriend for a special occasion, and looking to enjoy our dinner. She ordered the burger cooked medium, I ordered the center filet MEDIUM RARE, asparagus for a side, and the Kefta for an app. The kefta was great, the burger was good BUT it was cooked medium rare, the asparagus just ok and the center cut filet was ok, BUT cooked MEDIUM. So it seemed the us that the chef confused our order. I called a waiter and respectfully said “I hate to be that guy, but this isn’t medium rare” he proceeded to flash a light on the cut and say that the brown center was a medium rare. I completely disagreed. He tried to dismiss my credibility. The manager came and said “I would call this a medium rare plus”. I’ve had plenty of steaks in my life and that was not medium rare. Anyways, the waiter came once every 20 minutes, but he was nice and agreed that my steak order was messed up and apologized. Upon getting the check, no discount for my troubles. So I paid a large sum for a bad steak that wasn’t cooked as I ordered. Not going to any of this restaurant group locations. For a good steak meal, and prime service, fogo de chao or Chama gaucha all the way!

It was my first visit to Cape Dutch, and our meal was excellent. I had a peach salad, which was a special, and for my entree, I had the lamb. The food was all delicious. Service was also good but could have been better. Maybe more refined service to match the beautiful decor and delicious food.

Loved the food; loved the space. It's a cozy, intimate vibe -- until the noise levels ratchet up to Saturday night levels. Still -- we really enjoyed it. Service was OK -- I ordered the Waterzooi which was seafood in a bowl of broth. It didn't come with a spoon so I asked for some bread, but never got it. Later, several of us ordered coffee and received one tiny pitcher of what appeared to be skim milk -- definitely not cream. Not enough for the whole table so we asked for more. No luck on that one either. Definitely will go back one more time before drawing conclusions.

The food was only mediocre (not worth the prices they charge). We ordered the wild mushrooms and got baby portabello (all shapes were the same). When they put the water on the table, something black about 1/4 inch long was floating in my husband's glass (the waiter replaced it without any apology). After my ice melted, I saw the same in my glass (again no apology even after I suggested they may have something in their ice maker). That started me looking around. Even though we were at the first seating, there was food on the floor and dust everywhere. There was about 1 inch of gunk on the registers, so I let the chef know. He made some excuse about a water leak, again no apologies or concern. If that's what the dining room looks like, I can only image the kitchen. Needless to say, we won't be back.

First time here- food was generally good but the place has NO AC - Yes, the room were we sat was extremely hot to the point I thought I was going to.pass out. We complained but they said AC was at capacity. I frankly think is disrespectful not to have AC properly working in the summer time When you have an open kitchen with fire burning.
I ordered the sole which was good but they did not include the spinach and pancetta because it had onions - which I'm allergic to. They should have sauteed some spinach with oancetta- something very simple to do instead of just removing it.
I might give them another try because the Chef is super nice but not until the fall- when the weather is cooler since I suspect they won't fix the AC.

My husband and I have dinner here many times and it is the excellent food that keeps us coming back. However, I have twice notified them that we were celebrating my father-in-laws birthday in April and they did NOTHING to acknowledge it and then last night we joined another couple to celebrate my husband’s birthday and again they did NOTHING! I made notes in my open table request in vain, left a phone message and actually spoke to someone at the restaurant. I asked if I could bring an expensive bottle of champagne to celebrate and if they would acknowledge him and bring him a dessert. They said they would and did NOT. Our server was young and started over pouring champagne into the flutes- we had to ask him not to fill them so much so the champagne could continue to chill. He did not say happy birthday to Michael, he brought dessert menus and did not bring him anything to celebrate. Honestly, I have had it with this and have not had a restaurant totally ignore my requests before- not once but twice. We will not go back.

3rd or 4th time dining here. Service was HORRIBLE. We were seated almost 20 minutes after our reservation. No water was offered for about 15 minutes after being seated. Our waiter seemed rushed and not present. He forgot to bring one of our cocktails. Our actual entree order was taken by another server or supervisor. Food was excellent but nobody came by to check on us to see if we were enjoying our meal. Server looked flustered and inexperienced and made our dining experience less pleasant. The food and cocktails here are always stellar but good heavens the service was horrendous. I hope management intervenes before poor service destroys one of my favorite restaurants

Cape Dutch cuisine is outstanding. And the service impeccable. I have to admit I am not a fan of the long, skinny dining room of Woodfire, now Dutch, but it was just too hot. We were both sweating at times. The air flow is uneven and the high ceiling, I am sure, makes it hard to get the space comfortable. BUT this is too fine a restaurant to not get the climate right.
