Overall good dinner, some of the dishes could have been cooked with less fat
Absolutely awesome stay overall. We loved the Ciders, the music and the shuffle table. Very friendly staff. The food is delicious and special, although the portions were pretty small for the price. It is going to be one of my favorite spots to go out - we appreciated the cozy, easy-going and rustic atmosphere.
Amazing gluten free and peanut free restaurant. You would never know it is gluten free if you didn’t know. I had the fish and chips and cider. Best meal in Seattle!
Excellent pick for celiacs/gluten-sensitive as the whole restaurant is 100% gluten free (except their beers I guess), and that is one of the main reasons I like this place. A bonus to that is that they source higher quality ingredients and serve healthier foods. To sum it up: It's a great spot for gluten-free and healthy comfort foods, especially if you like ciders.
Pleasantly surprised. Never had cider before. Server quickly recommended something based on quick answers to questions and it was so-o-o-o good. Service was impeccable and food was the same. Not your normal fare and oh, so good. Will definitely return.
A totally Gluten Free night!! Loved it. Great service, fun menu, so many GF options, Even the gluten eaters didn't miss it! Wonderful ciders selection. Thank You!!!
Capital Cider was an amazing restaurant that is entirely gluten free, but you wouldn't know that. Food was really great. We were celebrating my daughter's birthday that has celiac. Highly recommended!!
Wonderful service, both hostess and waitstaff! Cocktails were tasty, as were the appetizers (burrata and warm olives). I had wild mushroom rigatoni and it was not good. It tasted like a frozen diet entree with breadcrumbs and burnt garlic on top-managed to eat half. Husband had skirt steak-perfectly cooked and very flavorful. Would return, but probably would stick to the small plates to share rather than entrees. Truly lovely staff thought!
The food was great and the service was spot on. As a celiac, I was thrilled to go to a gluten free restaurant and know that I could eat ANYTHING. I had the fish and chips, which I hadn't eaten for decades--it's almost impossible to find GF fish and chips. They were delicious. The other 5 guests in our party loved the food, too. I can't wait to go back!
Food was great. Really enjoyed the food and the honey ginger cider.
It’s my nieces FAVORITE “Gluten Free” restaurant in Seattle. Food excellent (fish and chips are killer) service A+!
This was a fun and unique dining experience for my best friend and me. The ambience is 1700's Colonial America. The menu has a lot of interesting choices and foods I had never had before. The food was delicious. The service was great. The downside was we were seated next to a very noisy, large party of people. Also, the prices are expensive for the portion you receive.
Fantastic! All gluten free, delicious and tasty food. Non GFs were with us and they loved it all too. Great waiter named Zack. We shall be back. Thank you
Loved that everything is gluten free and the cider I had was great (limoncello).
We love the food, but the temperature in the restaurant is far too cold. It's Winter, folks. Turn up the heat!
Diverse menu with many delicious options for a guest with food allergies; knowledgeable and caring service.
Had a great brunch, 2 in my family are Celiac and this was a fantastic option! The best spicy Bloody Mary ever!
This restaurant was one star short of being great. I asked for sweet potato fries with my burger but received a combo of white potato and sweet potato (I don't eat white potato). My husband asked for coffee after dinner and the waiter said, "If it's brewed." Uh, you're a restaurant, brew the coffee when a patron asks for it. They did in the end. Everyone in our party seemed to enjoy their meals. Not wowed, but no complaints, hence 4 stars. Loved the atmosphere.
Great cider selection. Interesting comfort food menu. SmaLl plates were better than mains.
The type and quality of food that we would make at home, things you don’t see often in restaurants, such as sun chokes, and all gluten free!
Capital Cider makes it easy for people with food allergies/sensitivities to order straight from the menu. Most things are free of the top allergens and gluten.
The food was good but not great. Could use a little more flavor development in some of their dishes.
Gluten free and allergen free CAN taste great too.
Nice atmosphere. Personable and educated waitstaff.
Very nice service. Food was excellent. Price was fair. I love everything about Capitol Cider. I can't wait to go back.
Been here a couple of times. Food is mostly pretty, fries are a bit salty.
Every employee that I've interacted with has been incredibly personable and funny.
They have a variety of card and board games to play.
I appreciate having an entire menu with delicious devoted to gluten free!
Delicious food, fantastic selection of cider! Great service, loved the atmosphere.
Even though Capitol Cider bills itself as a gluten free restaurant, that wasn't our calling. None of us had dietary restrictions, but we're all fans of cider and good food. This restaurant delivered on both fronts. The cider list is extraordinary, and the kitchen produces food that is simply delicious. The only negative was that our order was a bunch of small plates, and they seemed to arrive all at once. It would have been nice to have them paced out a bit more - both for space on the table and to prevent the wait for the first dish.
Love this restaurant. a little disappointed with the service this visit. Food arrived in the wrong order for some of our party
We sat downstairs and it was FREEZING cold. Our waiter was pretty unfriendly, we had to ask multiple times for water, the small plates were SMALL - one of those experiences where you pay $50 per person and end up leaving still a little bit hungry.
My daughter and I were excited to try this restaurant in Seattle because it advertises as having 100% gf menu. Turns out the batter used is made with chick pea flour, a common allergen for many gluten intolerant suffers and a legume, which many gf eaters cannot consume either. So the menu became very limited. And a few of the items we could eat were already gone for the night, which limited our choices more. Obviously the chef du cuisine is not GF eater from health issues or would know better.
Other than these problems the menu is lovely, and the cider tasting a blast to try.
Service was really slow for our table. The tables on either side turned two times before we left and we did not have any more items of food than those tables. The food we did get need salt but it wasn’t possible to get our server to attend to our needs so we blew it off.i wouldn’t return unless I had an assurance of a change in the menu as noted above and that the servers would take care of us.
Food and drinks were great! Had multiple small plates. Favorites were the lamb, chicken wings and beets.
Service was some of the worst I have ever experienced. Wrong drink flight. Never checked to see if we were happy. Forgot order a second time and generally failed to be there when needed.
Food was wonderful as usual. We had reservations but we were asked if we could move downstairs because they were overbooked. We agreed because we had not had a bad experience downstairs. We were sat at a table for three that was only half a table facing the wall. From sitting to leaving we were there for two and half hours. It took over an hour to get our food. We order one round of drinks, one appetizer, and a main dish for each of us. We ordered everything at once. The server kept visiting the table next to us but not ours. When she did come by she apologized for how busy it was. It was a Saturday evening which is busy but she still had time to stop and chat with her fellow servers several times while we were still waiting to be checked on. This was by far our worst experience at Capital Cider. Usually service is good and even though the servings can be small they are very good. Hopefully the service will be better next time.
Delicious food; served efficiently by a wait person who knew about the ciders and took care of our orders carefully.
THE BEST GLUTEN FREE MEAL I HAVE ENJOYED IN A LONG TIME!! My hubby loved it even more! He couldn’t believe. Everything . He.ate was .gf! Staff awesome and knowledgeable. Cozy and vibrant upstairs with a great bar atmosphere downstairs. Brilliant set up! I will be back!!
It was our first time in! The ciders are ENDLESS! It was a good time and the server was knowledgeable about the 1500 some ciders they have! Get the charred broccoli!
Incredible food, excellent service, plenty of options and a kitchen that is 100% gluten free. All of this adds up to a fairly expensive time - worth every penny, but go in with a budget.
Food was okay. We tried a couple of the small plates and a few of the ciders. The ciders were good but some of the small plates were poorly seasoned and a little bland.
We always enjoy going to Capitol Cider - it's such a relief to me (I'm celiac) that their kitchen and bar are 100% gluten-free. My husband and I also have other dietary restrictions, namely having to be dairy/egg-free. They always accommodate those needs fairly well. We can't have everything on the menu obviously, but we can even have one baked dessert (apple crisp). For this occasion they had the NYE tasting menu that was New Orleans themed. So we were able to have very tasty jambalaya. We weren't able to have things like beignets, but there was an option to order a la carte off the special menu. That is not always the case when restaurants do special menu nights, so that was appreciated. I also had the herb-crusted lamb ribs, which I can never miss... so yummy. It was a little more casual NYE dinner than we were used to, but it was laid-back and great. There were people who were dressed up for the occasion, and there was a special event going on downstairs. So it was a mixed crowd. Good lively atmosphere as always.
Stopped by with my partner while catching up with a friend who lives in Seattle. Came here on the recommendation of others. It was a delight to have a gluten-free menu that was solid! The fact that all dishes made note of what allergens they contained was a nice touch.
My partner and I both enjoyed the fish and chips. (I recommend the apple cider vinegar to go with it.) The mushroom rigatoni our friend had was rich and delightful. My partner had the jalapeno cider, our friend had the wassail, and I went with the winter spice cider. Each was fantastic! We decided to try all three desserts. Really, we loved them all, but ultimately the apple crisp won the day. Plus, our waitress was friendly and helpful. What a fantastic treat!
Capitol Cider goes above and beyond the average gluten free offerings. Everything is delicious, fresh, and safe due to their dedicated GF kitchen. My only mild disappointment was that their amazing buttermilk cinnamon rolls were not available until well after they opened on the Saturday we visited (we sat at 10:15am, and were told they wouldn't be ready for an hour). Don't know if this is a regular occurrence, but I was really looking forward to sharing one with our group. Still, the Toad in the Hole I ordered was phenomenal! I would have liked a vat of the truffle holandaise to go! We will definitely be back!
As lovers of cider, we could hardly pass up Capitol Cider on our recent visit to Seattle. We were glad that an ad in the Alaska Airlines magazine alerted us to its existence! Our waitress was super nice, and our seating in a single lane by a front window kept us away from the main dining area which could be noisy at certain times. We explored four ciders by sharing a flight of three plus a glass of another selection, all dry (we do not share in the growing interest in sweeter, fruity ciders, though with around 200 ciders, Capitol Cider would be able to suit any taste). And then the meals arrived, both totally splendid. The braised pork with creamy grits and vinegary beets made me an eager member of the clean plate club, and my husband's chicken fricassee was also excellent. We just wish we lived in the neighborhood . . .
