Was so looking forward to dining here, but a huge disappointment. The rest room had a stench and untidy, an immediate turn off. The food didn’t look fresh and had no taste. We lost our appetite and refused the doggy bag.
A tiny bug crawling all over the table. And, to make it worse, there was a strong smell of some cleaner like Pinesol from under the table, along the walls. The whole area had an old unclean smell.
Overall, it was a disgusting experience. A pity, the restaurant has a great location and well designed. Previously, we had enjoyed the other Capitol at the Irvine spectrum so much, thought we’d give this a shot. Never again.

This is my favor dimsum place in the area. Dinner is hit or miss...but come here for the ambiance and service. Have a family dinner here. Everyone loves the seafood tofu soup and walnut shrimp. But BBQ pork is way too lean and mix veggies looks...Idk, looks like covered by glue. The rest is decent.

Don't eat here if you have food allergies. We asked the waiter and he confirmed no peanuts in any items we ordered. Our son ended up in the emergency room. They were helpful once they determined how serious this was and found out one of the items they told us had no nuts had peanuts in it. I think the place is just too busy for them to pay attention to issues like this.

Had reservation for dining on Christmas evening. Too many people waiting at hostess stand and bar area, where they hovered over diners. Understanding it was busy, wait for food was very long (30 minutes) and then one dish that was ordered was forgotten. It came about 20 minutes later. Food was good, but not worth the wait. A lot of hype about this restaurant, which unfortunately it does not live up to.

The worst experience I have had at a restaurant. We had a reservation at 9:00 pm. We got there at 9:10 not knowing they closed at 9:30. Once we got there we were told we had to order quick and eat fast. I said I didn't want to be rushed and he said to eat fast. I decided to leave. They were very rude. Never would want anyone to experience this service. Don't patronize this restaurant.

This was our first time at Capital Seafood. It was my birthday and I chose it because I wanted Peking Duck. However, when we arrived at the strip shopping center, we had no idea that such a wonderful wealth of Asian restaurants existed in just one center. We will be back to try others in the center as well as returning to Capital Seafood.

I believe the name of the restaurant is somewhat inaccurate as I would classify it more as a high class Chinese restaurant than a seafood restaurant. That does not in any way negate the fact that their menu includes several outstanding seafood dishes.

Although the food we ate, Mushu Pork and Peking Duck, were both delicious, I have to say that the highlight of our visit was the outstanding service. Attentive without being intrusive, helpful and friendly. What more could you ask for from your server?

I highly recommend this restaurant.

The food was amazing! Great seafood, terrific service, and our table was well placed. Cannot wait to return with another group of friends or family. Though it was expensive - the food was fresh, tasty and well worth it. We had freshly steamed lobster, crab and the duck. No room for desert. Yum!
