We had a dinner reservation for 6pm and were told we could go downstairs following our dinner for our birthday when we made her reservation. The dinner ended at 730 and they wouldn’t let us downstairs and told us to put our name on the waiting list, despite being here since 530. Then proceed to never let us downstairs from the wait list.l

I was planning to have dinner with eight of my friends and then go into the basement. The week prior I was told on the phone that reservations have a priority to get downstairs. This was evidently not the case and we waited over three hours to get downstairs and never received any text messages. The hostess informed me that only reservations between 5pm and 7pm have a priority for downstairs but that’s not what I was told over the phone. There seems to be a discrepancy in the communication amongst employees and if I knew the reservation had to be earlier I would’ve canceled and rescheduled for the following week. I enjoy coming to Capo I love the food and I enjoy the place but I was very disappointed that my friends and I were not able to go in the basement.

Capo is excellent - great food, great wine, great service. Only complaint from this experience was sitting right underneath a fan that made our table chilly/drafty.

Jeronimo and Alexis are the best waiter and waitress! I go every week and usually have one or the other. Jeronimo knows everything about wine too - so let him pick a great red for you! They're so kind, attentive, and hardworking. My water is never empty, and there is always more bread (AND oil) coming out for me. Capo is always a 10/10 for me which is why I return every single Wednesday. Patrick usually greets and seats us, and makes sure we are having an overall perfect night - and finally - Ciro!!! Ciro makes us homemade dishes, everything is homemade, and is so nice that he will customize a dish per our request. My clients and coworkers ask to come back every week because of the overall experience: the food, homemade pastas, the waiters, Patrick, Ciro, the wine, all for a great price, and last but not least, the BREAD and oil - never change it, neveeeeer. Thanks to Will Clark for always making sure we are taking care of. Best place ever. See you next week, and Saturday probably.

30m waiting to be seated and 20m waiting for someone to take the order. After that, the services was good. My major complain, it’s really, really loud.

Food & drink quality is great. Loved Capo when they offered half plates and full plates. Now there is only one option: half plate size (maybe half plate plus a mouthful) for full plate price. I get that the pandemic put a strain on profits and COGs rose, but this is a big jump 13 months in. Still delish, just set your expectations properly.

Gluten free night (Tuesdays) was AMAZING. As someone who can't eat gluten it was a huge treat being able to order from the entire menu. The food was so delicious. Can't wait to go back

We were told about their gluten free night and it did not disappoint! My sister is gluten free and it was so nice for her to be able to have so many choices, especially for things like pasta and bread which she can occasionally find places, but they are never great. All the food was amazing and the service was excellent. We will definitely be going there again!

Sat at our table and didn’t get water for 25 minutes. Had to ask someone to bring us water. After that ordered drinks and food and didn’t get our drinks for another 25 minutes. Immediately put our card down to get the check because the service was so bad. Took the food to go because none of us wanted to be there anymore

We came to Capo for my fiancé’s 35th birthday. We had a party of 8, so we we had to sit separately due to COVID regulations. Our table of 4 shared the meats and cheese platter and it was delicious. The food was wonderful but some of the drinks we ordered were not drinkable. I’m not sure if they were not mixed correctly or what, but they were ridiculously strong. We will most likely return, though we will be more choosy when picking cocktails.
