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...

I love this restaurant. We dined here on our wedding anniversary. The food was delicious and the wine list was exceptional. It’s definitely a restaurant for special occasions unless you of course, you can afford a $500 dinner for two every week!

Food is amazing and service is usually top notch as well. Was a bit disappointed because this time around they wouldn’t open the wine I brought and pay corkage because it happened to be on their wine list.

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.

I suggested Capo for my son to take me for my birthday. Prices are not listed on the internet. It was much more expensive than expected. We just ordered pastas as main dishes were too expensive. It was crowded and noisy.

We live in FL and each time we are in the L.A. area (at least 3-5 times a year), Capo is a must. We have been many times and we fall more in love with this special place. It is one of our favorite restaurants in the country. It is 5 star! Need I say more?
