Fish and chips were really good, plate looked really pretty. Great coder recommendations by the server, pumpkin spice cider and blackberry currant cider, were delicious!
Absolutely amazing cider place in Seattle. Would recommend to anyone and will definitely return :)
Very nice to have a place with 100% gluten-free options on the menu. Everything was tasty and if I didn’t know it i would never guess it as gluten-free. Now I need them to open a restaurant closer to Tacoma.
Service was great. Recommend the whiskey and cider flights. I found the tequila cocktail too sweet.
Great restaurant, great service and the cider flights were really good.
Fantastic! Food was delicious, highly recommend the fish & chips or burger. Service was great. Felt very clean and safe with their COVID precautions.
Excellent dinner that was celiac safe without sacrificing great flavor. Even the gluten eaters in our group were impressed.
You'd never know it's a gluten-free kitchen except for the sandwich buns. Fantastic food and excellent service. The Brussels sprouts and cheese curds appetizers are SOOOO good! The french fries are not to be missed. We will return.
Really cozy booth seating and safe practices from the staff. Amazing selection of ciders, this is a must go when visiting Cap Hill.
Capitol Cider continues to have great food and excellent service.
It’s was just bad
The staff was very kind and super attentive. Having so many GF options that all sound great is super rare. The food was amazing and the cider/ whiskey variety was very impressive! Will be returning again soon!!
Got sat next to leak gas line. Not a pleasant experience, I would not recommend this place.
Apologies for any miscommunication or misunderstandings when you brought this issue up to you server, but there is not a gas leak in or outside of our establishment.
Great food especially if you are gluten free. Fried chicken Or fish sandwich! Excellent selection of ciders and even on tap so you can get flights.
Overall great place. The chilaquiles are made with tortilla chips (vs. tortillas) that aren't quite cooked long enough, so they're crispy, but still tasty. Great wine and cider.
Gluten free and delicious the food was well prepared and served quickly by the attentive server
The host and waiters were amazing and very attentive. Food came out quick and was hot and DELICIOUS! I got the fish and chips and the rest of the group got the chicken sandwich. We also got cheese curds and the flash fried brussel sprouts as an appetizer and then the lemon cheesecake for dessert. Everything was amazing.
The service was unusually slow. We had to ask twice to put in drink orders. We ordered our food when we ordered our drinks because we had been there for almost an hour already. The food was excellent, but the service continued to lag. I have not had this experience in this restaurant before. I eat here often enough that sine if the staff recognize me, so I was really disappointed because I had two guests who were eating there for the first time. I’m hoping this experience was just a one off.
We had asked for a booth, and were told that they were already taken. There was still an empty booth when we left. Felt disregarded by the host/hostess/management
I felt that the food was overpriced for the quality. Nice GF options though.
We visited on a Tuesday Blues night which I thought was a wonderful atmosphere. The food and service was top-notch, as always.
great gluten free restaurant. Been there several times.
Capitol Hill's food is delicious , gluten free and almost every dish can be made vegetarian or vegan too.
We eat here often because of the gluten free menu. The food this time was the best everywhere. Everything was delicious.
The food was good. We shared Brussels Sprouts, which we have had a few times previously. This time it had a bit of vinaigrette, and it was still great if not better: crunchy, slightly blackened.
I had the cod cakes (Crab is so expensive that few restaurants serve it) and they were really tasty and filling.
My husband had the pumpkin risotto which he liked. However, he was really looking forward to the Bologna Spaghetti, but it had cream in it, which we were told, could not be deleted. Why the cream?
More non-Dairy would have been nice as well as more pasta options (same pasta but more sauces)
The expresso martinis were great, but not just for desert.
The food was very good. Portions were on the smaller side for the cost, but the flavor and ingredient quality seemed high.
I went with a friend who has very sensitive gluten allergies. She can have reactions from sharing utensils or cups with people who have eaten gluten, and she did not have any issues after our meal.
I would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone with gluten restrictions and anyone looking for high quality food!
Brunch food was not terribly warm. The gravy on the biscuits was gluey, and the portion size surprisingly small. My friend complained that his hash was almost entirely carrots. We ended up going somewhere afterwards to satiate ourselves. Service was friendly, if not attentive.
Service was great.. The food was excellent and variety of beverages was huge. My wife found her new favorite cider/drink. Overall an awesome experience for Valentine's Day.
Excellent donner and well priced. Our server was delightful and even gave us a complimentary dessert for our anniversary!
Nice place great food
Family Valentine’s dinner- a double-date with our son and his girlfriend. Capitol Cider surprised us in a good way! Both the small plates and the entrees were wonderful, the ciders were unique and the drink menu extensive! Capitol Cider feels like an old English pub- we sat at a comfortable long table next to a “fireplace,” cozy on a cold February evening. The food and drinks came out in a timely fashion, but we didn’t feel rushed. We plan to go back!
Loved it!!!!!!! Definitely adding to the regular list!!!
The breakfast options were great, but those GF cinnamon buns.... next level! Very good food and the service was on point.
Horrible food, poor wait staff, didn't even log our reservation.... Do not recommend. Very disappointed because love to see a gluten free place but also not vegan friendly limited options very bland
We had the marinated beets (slightly pickled flavor; delicious), the fried chicken sandwich (messy, and so tasty), and the cod cakes from the happy hour menu. The cod cakes had a tiny bit too much sauce on them (it made them a little soft if you didn't eat them right away), but they were really flavorful. Everything else was flawless. Our server was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. What a great find for GF eaters AND diners with no dietary restrictions alike!
Great tasting quality food and awesome service. Not inexpensive, but not too extravagant either. My gluten sensitive family can eat anything on the menu, but none of it tastes GF! I love the Hash and Poached Egg breakfast!
Overpriced brunch and quality is not good.
Food portions were good size but not worth the money you pay. On top of the high prices, you then get charged a “living wage tax” as the min wage in Seattle is more than the company wants to pay its employees and the way they offset this is to charge the customer. Really?! Although it’s not a large amount of money, it’s the principle of the matter and had I known that the company operated this way, I would not have eaten there.
