Calvin very bad service. Seemed put out to be waiting our table. I have dined here as often as possible but only this once the service was bad. Very disappointing. Embarrassed because i was treating friends to a nice dinner.
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.
Great food, great ambiance and great service
Gorgeous atmosphere. Great service & great food.
My friend and I really enjoyed Cape Dutch. From the inviting environment, to the delicious food, to amazing desserts and drinks, to wonderful service. It is a great place and I’ve already recommended it to others, and will look forward to next time. Highly recommend!
Location is in a very congested area. Valet parking is all I could see and the poor guy has to run through heavy traffic to cross the street to park / retrieve the cars. I tipped him extra just for seeing his plight.
Food was VERY GOOD, but note this is a place to try different items as the portions (even the seafood entrée for my wife) was not that big. I ordered 2 different starters and my wife and I shared the mushrooms (VERY TASTY). This was plenty for me as I saved room for a delicious special cake they make (VERY TASTY).
The lower rating comes from the soup (lobster bisque type) that I found mediocre in taste. Not bad, just fair though. The lowest rating comes from the price of the wine. My wife and I each ordered a glass of chardonnay and it was $17 each (though very good). The menu shows most of their alcoholic items are VERY EXPENSIVE. I requested a South African chardonnay and the server had a good explanation about it being in a stainless steel process rather than a typical oak barrel which made this very good and "extra crisp" the way I like it.
Overall I would heartily recommend this restaurant to any one that has not tried it for the uniqueness. Second-timers though may be limited / held back by the pricing......
The good: the food was AMAZING. AMAZING.
The bad: our waiter was TERRIBLE. He provided ok service but his attitude was AWFUL. After complaining about the heat in the restaurant, the waiter casually said "I mean, it's just hot. Everyone is hot. It will be better when the sun goes down." (This was after his attitude about other things like rushing us to order, etc) We finally asked the manager to come over and he shared that the AC was broken (odd bc the rest of the restaurant was cool) and gave us complimentary gelato (after we asked). We could have dealt with the heat better if the waiter didn't have such a terrible, dismissive attitude.
Their food; branzino fish, peri-peri "anything" and lemon ricotta pasta is delicious. Wood fire also adds another layer of yumminess. Good wines as well. Location is not desirable but once you are inside it's quite pretty and sophisticated.
The crisp nautical decor was so refreshing! White everywhere with touches of green and brown like the lovely driftwood display on one wall; the specialty is beef on their fancy grill but we had the seafoodzoo, excellently prepared, and the sole, very flavorful although the plate was not particularly beautiful, it could have been tweaked with a better veggie with the fingerling potatos for color in addition to the bright green spinach puree. Service was polished and attentive without being obtrusive; wine list good... the white chocolate bread pudding needed more flavor, more fruit sauce topping? but we ate it all especially the lovely cream brulee. So it was more expensive than just the food warranted, but given the lovely atmosphere, still a good value.
Although I have been to this restaurant numerous time I was extremely disappointed with our initial service. The moment we walked into the restaurant 3 employees were standing around and didn’t even greet us. I had to ask a question in order to get noticed and when I did they seemed bothered. We had an early seating so the restaurant was practically empty. The hostess should be the face of the restaurant. She was rude & short with us. We felt that the food this time around was average and didn’t justify the price. I ordered a fish for &40.00 and it came with nothing else. I mean how much would it cost to add a vegetable on the plate?
After multiple visits, Cape Dutch has quickly become my favorite restaurant in Atlanta. It is a hidden gem with a menu that delights. The flavors the chef puts together are unique and delicious and they have amazing wines and great cocktails to perfectly complement each meal. It is a wonderful place to celebrate something special or just to go out for a very nice meal.
A party of four golfers who were reluctant to try the Cape Dutch but were all very impressed with the quality of the grilled entries. Steaks were outstanding! Service great with an excellent selection of South African wines. All four intend to return.
I love the space and service, but the food quality is not up to the price tag.
We had friends visiting from out of town. This restaurant was one of the top highlights of the weekend. The ambience was great from the decor to the music. They placed our group in a more private area so we could actually enjoy each other’s company. Our server was absolutely impeccable, and the plating was done so beautifully. The food was phenomal!! I highly recommend this place for any occasion.
This was our first dining experience at Cape Dutch. We sat at the bar and enjoyed our evening very much. The food was good and the service was even better. I had the Lamb Rack and I highly recommend it. The bartender Bonnie was very knowledgeable about the beverage selections. The ambiance was nice. We will be back in the future.
If you are looking for a romantic place to bring the one you love, this place should be on your list.
The food was excellent, very eclectic and great South African wines on the list. Innovative cuisine and cool atmosphere.
Cape Dutch is one of my very favorite restaurants in Atlanta. They have just switched to their new summer menu. I love the fact that they update for the seasons and the food is always memorable. Chef Phillipe does a great job and their mussels are my husband's favorite. I adore their pistachio ice cream but the new chocolate cake they are serving may become my new favorite. Can't wait to go there again!
This restaurant does not have a proper handicap restroom stall. It is super small. I have brought this to their attention years ago but they don't seem to care to make the changes for people who use a wheelchair.
Without a doubt one of the best restaurants in the city.
The food was outstanding as was the service. It is on the pricier side, but well worth it. I’ll definitely recommend it.
Great food and service by Brandon!
As always, fantastic service, food and atmosphere.
Amazing Steaks! Recommend to ALL
Exceptional service. Everyone was treated like a vip
Great ambiance. Wonderful service!!
Eish. Not so good. We spent four years living in South Africa and have just relocated to ATL (so the memories are fresh). The food is BARELY South African. Frankly the only hint of traditional SA food we had was a bit of biltong on the charcuterie board...and friends, it was terrible.
Overall our food and experience was fine, but absolutely not even close to a $300 experience.
If you want Buckhead bimbos and a wildly overpriced experience BUT without charming service, this is your place. But actually, just give it a miss.
Sorry. Really wanted to love it ( we went for our ten year anniversary!!!) but it was a disappointment.
Excellent brought friends who had never been and they loved it!!
One word- Excellent!
The food was good and our server was great. When we first walked in we sat at the bar but the bartender was pretty rude and just not very nice. She just seemed like we were putting her out by ordering a drink. It was hard to overcome the rest of the dinner.
Excellent experience. Will visit again. Highly recommend.
Great food. Great service
This place was a huge and great surprise! The space has been beautifully redone. It’s much larger than it appears from the outside. The food was wonderful - we ordered tuna tartare, the filet, elk, Brussels sprouts. All excellent. Our server was efficient but a little hurried in the ordering process and not very warm and welcoming. All in all, a wonderful experience and definitely a place to try out for yourself. Our entire meal, including a bottle of wine and a shared dessert was around $185. While not necessarily an everyday dinner place, certainly not the most expensive restaurant in Atlanta.
The ambience was great, but the food just didn’t deliver - some items like my pasta was over cooked and no dishes left a lasting impression, especially for the price.
Always enjoy dining there.
Cape Dutch is wonderful. The food is delicious, the servers wonderful and the atmosphere lovely! We really enjoy it and try to get there when we are in town!
I there at least twice a month
We had to ask several times to have table bussed ; short staffed it seemed tho we like our server very much but he was stretched; had to return dessert... inedible. For the money, it should’ve been better
I had the filet med rare cooked perfectly. Seasoned perfectly. My date got the sea bass that tasted great but had many bones left in it. Friend got the ravioli that was also yummy. Tuna Tartare is a must. I will go back...just not for the sea bass.
Every course served was excellent.
