Capo has always been one of my favorite restaurants. However, our last experience there, the food was disappointing. I do not know where they are sourcing their meat nowadays, but the quality of the steak that we ordered, did not live up to Capo's normal standard. Maybe they had an off night. We had a group of 4 people and all 4 of us felt that the food was average at best.

This is not for the faint of wallet - but it is extremely worth it. 2 people - dinner, three glasses of wine, excellent spread of food - $450

I am absolutely 1000% in support of their 20% added gratuity on every check - though - to be brutally honest - charging prices as considerably high as theirs are and still not being able to pay a living wage without tips is sort of

Ordered the Branzino but was disappointed when it came. The waiter misled me into believing it was a whole fish grilled then filleted. It was not a whole fish but a fillet. I believe the waiter honestly thought it was a whole fish and just misunderstood my question.

Fantastic food. TOOOOOOO. LOUD!!!! Capo used to have a great medium level atmosphere. Now it’s playing loud music and we could barely have a conversation at our table of four. Really makes us not want to go back just because it’s too loud. I hope they see this and do something about it. We move the food there. Just can’t stand the noise.

We look forward to coming to this restaurant each time we are in town and we have recommended it to many. Unfortunately this time was very disappointing experience. The veal was off and had to be sent back. The chef, manager and waitress tasted confirmed it was not right. The vegetables were extremely salty. The waitress then commented on the bill that off course we did not charge you for the veal. I would hope not! After spending $600 on the meal I would have expected the manager to come over at bare minimum and perhaps some form of gesture from the kitchen to say sorry. I will say this leaves a bad feeling and reluctance to return.

Capo is always special. The ambience is great, and the food and service are excellent. Our most recent visit was memorable for the uni pasta and the Bryan Flannery Dry Aged Kansas City Steak. The steak was among the best I have enjoyed in Los Angeles and was so big that I ate half for dinner and half the next morning for breakfast. Appreciation to our server Roger for the recommendation. Highly recommended.

Capo is by far the best restaurant we have been to in the LA area. On this occasion, the four of us had pork, veal, pasta, and risotto, along with various appetizers. All were simply excellent. Although it took a longer than expected wait to order, once the order was complete, the service was fast, attentive, and completely what one would expect. We ate a bit later than usual this time at Capo and watched the kitchen staff clean. Wow, what an impressive show in itself. Capo is expensive but we have never felt that management overcharged for the service and quality.

I hate the idea that they automatically add 20% gratuity ( for a party of 4) especially on wine. There was some silly statement on the bill about “equality “ which is a ridiculous statement. I spent 3x on wine vs. food (none of which the Sommelier recommended...

It was our first time at Capo. I’ve heard good things for a number of years and was delighted to try it.
All agreed, the grilled Caesar salad was the best dish we had all night.

The veal chop was gorgeous, however the meat was tough. For $71 I expected better. The veal scallopini was ok. The sauce was oily and the meat also could have been more tender.
The veggies that accompanied the chop and the scallopini were perfectly done.
The complimentary sweets at the end of the meal was a lovely touch, however it would have been great if they had accompanied our coffees.
Service was on point and friendly

This is our second time we had dinner with friends at capo
We were with long time friends and did not want to spoil the evening
That being said
The food was incredibly salty... does the chef taste what he serves?
We ate as much as we could but frankly a $700 dollar dinner for four
With incredibly salty food was a let down.
This review is not about the money
It’s about the experience and enjoying time with friends
I had the fillet that encrusted with salt
My friend had the sole again salt
The guys had a risotto with crab and a veal chop. No one could finish the meal , let’s not even talk about the bloating later
Honestly it’s a shame because the products do not need to salted to death
Good luck to the Kitchen team

At Capo excellent food and service can’t quite compensate for what is a very cramped and noisy restaurant with prices that are significantly higher than those of restaurants with food of comparable quality. The wine list is long and impressive, but very expensive and with a noticeable lack of low and mid range wine options. The bar however is excellent. Capo seems to be content to charge a lot and cater to high rollers and tourists with healthy expensive accounts. I can’t fault this business model - being small they can easily fill the restaurant as they have been for several years. It’s worth visiting ... once.
