Capo certainly did not disappoint! The moment you arrive at Capo the atmosphere is buzzing with energy. They had large outdoor seating and even bigger indoors! There wasn’t a single item on the menu we didn’t like and we ordered almost everything. We ordered the Veal and it was one of the best veal we’ve ever had. You can tell the chef puts alot of love and passion into his food. The service was wonderful as well. We had Jeronimo who was attentive, knowledgable, and gave us an amazing dinner experience. Capo blew us away from beginning to end. Cant believe we didnt come here sooner!

We LOVE Capo and Lincoln and usually have birthday parties at Capo throughout the year. We’re big fans! But tonight was SUCH a disappointment all around. Our server was in such a rush he walked (ran) from the table before we could finish ordering- we flagged him back over to finish our order. One dish came out wrong- ordered spaghetti pomodoro and received the sausage cavatelli. When we sent that back we received the pomodoro but in the half portion, when we asked for the full order. By this time we were frustrated and hungry so we let it slide.

Server/kitchen was able to acomodate vodka sauce over the chicken parm which was nice, but there was one small measly and dry slice of moz on the chicken. Looked like a white craft American single. Sadly the sauce was so bland I had to douse it in salt and pepper. Unusual as I have ordered this before and loved it.

We will be back because we have had so many other great experiences at Capo but really hoping they get their acts together by then!

Amazing place! Came here with my boyfriend for our anniversary dinner, which I disclosed to the restaurant prior. They gave us amazing seating and free champagne to celebrate :) The waitress, food & atmosphere was awesome. It’s a super dim & romantic setting BUT also has upbeat music & a great drink selection. Would recommend!

We had a reservation and wanted to sit outside, which was unfortunately not possible. We had a high table inside and looked outside, so it worked out alright.
We only had a selection of appetizers but they were all delicious, nicely prepared and substantial in size. We had an excellent fresh wine and a martini.
Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Will come back - we are locals.

Our waitress Murph was awesome and food was amazing. Murph let us know that we reached our time limit outside but they could seat us in the basement, which was very cool and social distancing was set up to a T.

Sitting on the patio on a quiet Sunday night was perfect for two friends catching up! Our waitress, Tammy, was great! We were very happy to have her, and it was great chatting with her.

We had an amazing experience at Capo on Saturday. They say is waaaaay in the back at the back corner which I was originally disappointed about because I thought that the server would forget us. Our waitress was amazing and checked in on us a lot. Very pleased with the service and food!

One of our go to places - great food & drinks (we love the espresso martinis) and awesome dine in experience. It is very loud in here during peak hours so be prepared for that - we have been many times for both brunch and dinner and have never been disappointed.

I told the hostess we would get a drink at the bar while waiting but she said they just needed to clear the table and she would come get me in 1 minute. It took 10 and she never came and got me - I had to go back up and she replied, "oh yeah sorry it's ready" and we were annoyed waiting wishing we got that drink at the bar like we said initially. The worst part of the service however was our waitress once we got to the table. She laughed at her own jokes and we couldn't hear the specials whatsoever despite our desperate attempts to which was very awkward. Our waitress was terrible. We ordered a bottle of wine and 1 cocktail and it took 30 minutes to arrive. She came over 3 times telling us she is so sorry the wine still isn't here. We got the wine after our apps were served. We never received bread - it came mid-dinner. She told us we would get a complimentary app for all of the issues which arrived late. She came to ask us if we got it and we awkwardly responded no. She kept acknowledging all of the issues that kept happening but rather than things getting better they just kept getting worse. We were super understanding and kind but it was so bad it was almost comical. The food was great per usual but it was embarrassing to have friends out of town and talk up Capo which ended up embarrassing us due to the horrid service experience during this visit. The only thing I will say was the man that I called early in the evening to make the reservation was super great nice and helpful. Sorry to say everything else was downhill from that interaction on. We live down the street but sorry to say we won't return anytime soon.

The menu was fun!!! I just wish there were vegan alternatives for food. There was no dairy free milk for my cappuccino.

The restaurant needs to install something to absorb some of the noise. It was hard to hear the waiter.

Other than that, I highly recommend this place and plan to come again and again!

I met the owner of the most unprofessional establishment I’ve ever been in my life. Other than our waitress the entire staff was extremely rude not knowledgeable about running a restaurant or customer service etiquette at all absolutely one of the worst experiences ever! Every single person other than our waitress was more concerned about how many people were online outside waiting to get in to drink than the actual patrons that were there for dinner!

My husband and I had heard good things about Capo and went on a Sunday night expecting low-key. It was filled and vibrant and though noisy, it was a great atmosphere. Our server was outstanding and the appetizers and meals we very good. Our server mentioned gluten-free Tuesdays and we are so in, as gluten-free eating can be challenging. My food was amazing and we are both looking forward to going back!
