I attended the ROSE THIS WAY event on the Capitol Cellars patio! We had a wonderful time. Ambiance, food, wine and service were top notch. Can’t wait to try their Saturday brunch and have a Bloody Mary!
Two prime ribs and the sides served cold. We returned it and it came back grayish brown like they stuck it in a microwave. We returned again and were never asked if we wanted something else and no apologies were offered. When we informed the manager of our experience he simply turned and walked away. At least the hot dog from the cart on Capitol and main was good.
We usually LOVE Capitol Cellars, but this time the bad service really ruined everything. We easily waited 30-45 minutes with empty plates between appetizers and soup/salad, and again between soup/salad and our meal. We were never checked on or updated, and our table wasn’t bussed between courses. They ran out of the appetizer we wanted, the side I wanted, and the dessert we both wanted. It was frustrating that our waitress never even offered to let us know they were running low on the dessert in case we wanted to place an order for of in advance. She also never offered to comp anything, which was odd considering how much they were out of that we asked for, and how long we had to wait between courses. My husband even had to go ask where our food was at one point. Our wine glasses were never refilled, our water was never refilled. It was just a really unfortunate experience. It felt like a waste of money, as it just left us both really frustrated, especially as this was supposed to be a very special date for us that we’d been looking forward to.
Unfortunately, our experience was sub par. Our waiter, who was very nice, seemed to be running the entire restaurant on his own and this reflected in the very slow food and cocktail service. The food arrived very late and to be honest was not reflective of the prices. We won’t be returning.
My husband and I went to Capital Cellars to celebrate our anniversary, and what a great choice it was. The ambiance, service, and especially the food was extraordinary! I hope to be back again soon!
Our server was very attentive and the food was delicious.
Best patio and prime rib in Boise!
Nice outdoor seating options. Definitely plan to return for afternoon wine or cocktails and 1st readings.
The two of us were both disappointed with our entrees. My husband's pasta dish was liquidy and my prime rib was not tender. My baked potato tasted like it had been cooked long before, quite evident as I skipped the sour cream and grated cheese to expose the potatoe's interior. The creme brulee was excellant, however. Sitting on the patio on the corner of Main and 5th was noisy, and concerning with the number of people walking by within close proximity without wearing masks!
Brunch outside was part of a fun Saturday morning downtown. Quiche was delicious! Service was great too!
Saturday brunch on the new extended patio was wonderful! Thank you Capitol Cellars! Food, service and ambiance were amazing! Can’t wait to come back. We felt safe and could tell they are taking extra precautions to do what’s right to keep people safe.
Was excited to eat here based on previous experiences after not visiting for over a year. Tonight was the last time we will be coming. We were seated and waited 15 minutes before we decided to leave because no one had come by our table. On the way out, the person who sat us wished us a good night. When I informed him that we were leaving because of how long we waited without a server. His only response was sorry. They have great food here and typically have great service but his response sealed my thoughts on coming back anytime soon. I would have been happy to reconsider my decision to leave if his response had been a bit more appropriate
Capital Cellars never disappoints. They have reconfigured their inside & outside dining to ensure safe distancing. The menu is diverse and appealing, the food is delicious.
We had a great dining experience out on the street level patio here at Capitol cellars! Our server Jake was very attentive, fun to converse with, and timed our meal perfectly! It is always a joy to eat dinner at this great local Boise establishment! Thank you
My husband and I had a wonderful date at Capitol Cellars. The service was spot on. We felt well taken care of. The food was flavorful and beautifully presented. They have a full bar which is awesome. Also worth noting, you can tell they have taken the proper steps during covid to keep customers and staff safe. We will be back soon!
Added shrimp to Ceasar salad and it was excellent! Service was attentive but not overwhelming. Brought our own wine and corkage fee was reasonable. I’d go again in a heartbeat!!
Capitol Cellars has gone above and beyond to provide a safe dining experience for guests. I was impressed. There patio is the best in Boise! The food and service were outstanding. Prime rib was amazing. Full bar and extensive wine list. There hours have changed since reopening and they offer lunch, happy hour, Saturday brunch and dinner.
Salmon was over cooked & risotto & beans were very bland!! Creme brûlée was great!!! Will not go back!!
Great ambiance, quiet, amazing food and the staff is superb!
Exceptional service and amazing food and drinks. Upscale yet welcoming vibe. I really enjoy their lovely patio!
A great place for a relaxing meal. Fantastic Service
Had a wonderful time. Great food. Great service. Will me back.
A unique restaurant. Incredible service, excellent wait staff and delectable food. I will definitely return again and again!
THE ESPRESSO WAS INCREDIBLE!!! Would absolutely recommend. The patio was so lovely! Such a nice Saturday morning.
Jake made our night extra special! This spot is such an incredible place, with stellar food and perfect service.
The food was fabulous, the service was wonderful, and everyone was dedicated to a safe dining experience.
We had such a great time at the restaurant! Service and food was great!
The service was excellent. The appetizer we ordered was good, but our entrees were both bland and had us looking for a salt shaker that wasn’t there.
Capitol Cellars, Logan Smyser and crew continue to shine! Our food was cooked perfectly and was beautifully presented to our table.
Our server, Matt, was the perfect combination of wit, friendliness and efficiency.
I would highly recommend Capitol Cellars if you are looking for one of the top three dining experiences in Boise.
We had a great time and would definitely go back again. Servers were attentive and the food was excellent.
Great location, great ambiance, great service....food so-so. My feeling is this is due to recent reopening as I have heard it was fabulous in the past (pre-Covid). I would go again to give them the chance to bounce back. :)
Capital Cellars has a very romantic and quiet feel to the restaurant.
First visit to the Grille since COVID. W e ate inside. Servers all w/masks. Outside the tables may need more distancing when crowded.
Food is always good, and ambience is very good.
Our experience wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t great
This is our favorite restaurant by far. The Halloumi fries are a must!
Good food, good service, friendly atmosphere. It’s my “go to” place to eat with friends or business people.
Perfect quiet date spot. All of the wine was excellent and we shared a charcuterie board. The ambiance and service were why I picked 5 stars for this!
Wow! Capitol Cellars did an amazing job on reopening their restaurant. I certainly felt safe. The staff informed me of their protocols and guidelines once they escorted me to my table. The food, service and new decor were all incredible. Well done Capitol Cellars! Can’t wait to come back and dine on your patio! Thank you!
Everything was perfect!! First time there and we’ve already recommended it to family. Can’t wait to go back for the patio experience and to try brunch.
