Amazing food, service was slow and we had to ask for things a few times before actually getting it but the food made up for it. My gluten free friend had garlic bread for the first time in years so thanks Capo for your gluten free nights!

We went for gluten free night as one of my friends is strictly gluten free. Love that they have their normal menu just altered slightly! Food was incredibly delicious, service was excellent, and you could not even tell the food was gluten free. Highly recommend!

The server only comes to us once every 30 mins. We were wanted to order more food and drinks but give up. I'm sure she did not motivate to serve us. I used to love there a lot include Bolognese but this time I hate it. The pasta had not cooked enough, so I asked to change it but it came the same. I can see it hasn't cook by bite! Very disappointed. This time will be my last, sorry.

Took my son and his girlfriend to dinner last night. They go to Capo’s on a regular basis but my first time and won’t be my last! Really loved everything - waitress was outstanding, atmosphere was lively, the food was fabulous and the design and layout of the restaurant is beautiful

First time going to Capo for dinner, I’ve gone for brunch and the brunch is amazing. Accidentally went on Gluten-Free night but mostly everything was delicious! We didn’t love the tuna crudo but loved the Arancini, Corn Ravioli, Linguine and Clams and our other pasta! Was quieter than usual. Great ambiance and great drinks!

Had a lovely dinner with my parents on Tuesday, their gluten free night. Such a diverse gluten free menu– they even had gluten free tiramisu! Only downside is that it was very loud.

My family, as well as myself, has Celiac Disease so we wanted to try Capo’s gluten free night on Tuesdays. Everything was phenomenal ! Our server Brianna was great and was very knowledgeable. We will definitely be returning!

Service was great. Tuesday is gluten-free night and it was delicious. We had the Capri Sun and the frozen margarita which was the featured cocktail and both were delicious. We will definitely be back.

Loved capo! Came here on Tuesday with my family for gluten free night (my sister has celiac) and it was awesome! We all had great meals and felt like great precautions were taken for people with a gluten allergy. Will definitely be back!

This was my dads birthday dinner and it was extremely awful. Not only did they run out of the 3 bottles of rose we ordered but they brought our whispering angel and tried to charge us $73 (the price of the original rose we ordered) I think we all know whispering angel is not worth $72. After they brought that we decided to order another bottle, this time red. That took 45 mins. They brought us two taste tests for two different wines which was kind but the taste tests were 25 mins apart so by the tome we could order it was another 35 mins and we could care less what red wine. We had to send back two dishes and everything was cold. I would not recommend this place for a nice meal sadly. We came because we had fond memories from 4 years ago here but we were mistaken. The bar seems lively and fun but do not go for a special occasion. It will be slightly ruined :(

I saw a mouse in the Capo basement as I was walking to the restroom. It was deeply troubling and I am concerned about the cleanliness standards at the restaurant.

We went on their dedicated gluten-free night. I’m Celiac, and I was so excited to try out their menu! The food was delicious, but it was quite loud in the restaurant. Not exactly a romantic setting, although it has a nice ambiance. I recommend sitting outside or in the back, where it’s quieter.

The food has no quality control. Their red sauce comes from a can. It tasted burnt and disgusting. The sword fish was hard and tasted like it had been sitting out. Very disappointed.

Our brunch meal was amazing. I would comment however the crepes had too much egg resulting in a more chewy texture. The cup of Joe was too strong and did not have a good balance vodka and coffee flavor. We did enjoy the braised pork, it was flavorful and sunny side up egg was perfection. The eggs Benedict was by far my favorite poached egg I’ve ever had in any eggs Benedict.

We had requested a table in the basement under our reservation. When we arrived the indoor host told us we couldn’t go to the basement but she would put us on the wait list so after we ate we could go down. When we went to check on our spot in line when the check came she told us she would put us in line now, which should have been done an hour before. We were then 36th in line and wouldn’t have been able to get in if we waited so we had to leave. Host was rude and unfriendly, clearly choosing who was to go downstairs and who she would make wait

Capo is an amazing restaurant with great food+drink and a cool vibe, but it is SO noisy! We came here for my mom's birthday with our whole family and were screaming over the music to hear one another. It ended up not being very enjoyable because we couldn't really have conversation. Otherwise I would totally recommend it!
