Second time I've been over the last few months. Service not as good as my previous experience, but the food was once again superb. I love this restaurant.

This was our first visit to the old Woodfire Grill location. The interior had some new features but generally will be instantly recognizable to those who remember Woodfire Grill. We had a table next to the grill so we could watch the chef prepare the meat and seafood dishes. It added to the ambience to be that close to the action. In all, the food was very good, but two things keep me from giving the place a wholehearted recommendation. First the chairs are padded stools that make for a clean and uncluttered look in the room but it puts your back to the test over a 2-hour meal. In fact, we didn't stay for dessert because we were both fatigued by the stool seating at that point. Also, pricing seems a tad high across the board, cocktails, wine, entrees and dessert items. I would say entrees are overpriced by about $5 on average, not enough to prohibit returning, but something that we'll consider in contemplating Cape Dutch to other steak and seafood alternatives.

A wonderful evening ! A must return. Chef Philippe came out personally and made recommendations and was very generous and interested in making sure we ordered correctly. The menu is protein driven from Game to seafood and fine steaks. Lots of fun choices lots of quality items . Something for anyone that enjoys great food! Cooked to perfection! Thank you.

The restaurant is very aesthetically pleasing (a little loud but whatever). Ordered the charcuterie plate and it was brought with no explanation of what was what. Had to ask for refills on our water a few times. There were 6 of us and 5 of the 6 of us were served with our main course. The 6th person's dish (which was the same as another person's order) arrived about 15 min later. The food was good but the service was sub par for a place that nice and definitely for a place that took over the Woodfire space, which prided itself on its service.

It was the perfect place to celebrate my birthday. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals, including two beautiful desserts, and the atmosphere. I highly recommend everyone try Cape Dutch (minus the Brussels sprouts - they need some work).

The Specialty drinks are tasty. Perhaps a little small. But I love the lounge/bar area. Very cozy.
I think the food is pricey. It is good, but not great. Particularly, the porcini ravioli was underwhelming. They do fish/seafood well. I'd stick with that, but expect an expensive bill. The service is professional and appreciated it.

Overall, our experience was ok. I think the food for the most part was good, however, it wasn't worth the price paid. The wine list was great, menu options varied. We ordered a great bottle of South African wine, a few appetizers and a tomahawk Steak. Unfortunately, the soup tasted more like butter than cream and our steak was under-done (wanted med rare and it was rare), the extra prawns were tough. While the overall experience was fine, we wouldn't go back. The value wasn't there - it was a very expensive dinner for the quality of food we received.

Delicious meal but very disappointed in their attempt to drastically overcharge us: menu stated $44 for steak and charge was $55. Lamb shank menu $35, charge $42. They corrected charge when we noticed, claiming it was "New Year's eve price charge" (it is now January 4th!)

The filet mignon was one of the best we've ever had. You could nearly cut it with a fork. Excellent! The Sea Bass was also fantastic. It was cooked perfectly and the lemon caviar sauce was light and flavorful. We loved the atmosphere of the restaurant. It is a pricey restaurant, so not one that we will visit frequently. However, when we have a special occasion to celebrate we will certainly consider this as the perfect place to celebrate.

Our evening got off to a rocky start as the valet parking was full when we pulled up to the restaurant, and we then waited 30+ minutes for our reservation. Normally I wouldn't go back to a restaurant after this initial experience, but things changed dramatically once we were seated. Our server was excellent and so was the food. The mussels were probably the best I've ever had and the tuna two ways was also great. The size of these appetizer portions were also very generous. My wife had the highly recommended whole branzino and I had the elk chop which were both very, very good. We look forward to going back again and trying some other things on the menu.

Cape Dutch is a beautiful restaurant, the size of the restaurant is deceiving as it is much larger than it appears to be from the outside.
I ordered the Branzino, the flavor was awesome. However, I ordered the fish deboned, and my first 3 bites I found bones. Also, their seems to be variation in the serving size. I noticed the serving size of a diner seated next to me; it was noticeably larger.
The Blakely, a spicy tequila elixir, is everything - a must try.
The server was awesome, very personable and striving to ensure I and my guests enjoyed our dining experience. I noticed, who I believed to be the chef visiting diners, as a first time diner who sent their meal back (due to so many bones in the fish) I anticipated the chef would stop by my table or at least the manager.
Although the manager did not stop by the table, he/she compensated with a free desert.
My entree did not meet my expectations; however, I would consider returning.

Sea bass entree was off the charts delicious and great wine list. Being it’s Christmas season it was extremely loud noise level with private parties going on. It was certainly a scene and lots of good people watching. Waitstaff was very friendly and attentive and I love the decor. Will be back.

The decor of Cape Dutch is lovely, as expected in a fine restaurant. Our service was impeccable. The waiter was attentive without being intrusive, informative about the menu and South African food style, extremely pleasant, and welcoming. The filet was the best beef I have ever put in my mouth, and I have eaten at fine restaurants all over the world. I can say the same about the branzino. It’s a little pricey but worth every penny. Replacing the old Woodfire Grill, Cape Dutch is in an unlikely location and the plain brown exterior is easy to miss. But DON’T Miss it. I can’t wait to go back.
