Great except the steak was overcooked in the middle. SUPER expensive...makes it only palatable for a special occasion.
Terrific restaurant/attentive staff.

Food and wine is extremely overpriced. The food is good yet not memorable. I get it the pandemic hurt restaurants and they are trying to make up for it but customers can feel cheated for overpricing

It has been a long time since we have been to Capo and were astonished at the prices. Food was very good but to sit outside on Ocean Park even in a tent, was noisy and difficult to visit.

Was a frequent here before the lockdown.
I would have said before it was LA 1# Resturant

Today it’s a very different story.

FYI - menu online is not the real menu at the restaurant.
Opentable allows 9:30PM reservation- but when you get to the restaurant they will tell you they are closed.

They will pretend they are doing you a favor by accommodating your perfectly valid confirmed reservation.

Food quality has gone down to the level of a low/mid level restaurant.

Food was under seasoned and almost tasteless.

Waiter only asked me how the food was/checked up on me after the main courses were finished.

Unfortunately this has just become another LA resturant to be seen at. Nothing to do with food quality, service or taste.


My waiter got my order wrong. The bus boy had to fix it part of it, I scraped off the rest of the order that was wrong.

Despite the waiter not checking up and messing up twice - I was still forced for give 20% gratuity- as it is mandatory.

I have no issues with a service fee or the prices at any restaurant - but nothing at this restaurant meets or requires it.

You are paying for a Ferrari and getting a KIA

Food was very good, but they raised their prices considerably from last time I was there. A steak is $88, wine is $20/glass and a mandatory 20% tip.

Service was excellent and the tables are very well spread out with comfortable heaters.

Apps and pasta were great. Branzino was tasty. Ribeye was fair. Not super tender. Rack of lamb was the worst ever! Two tiny lamb chops, and almost all fat! It was ridiculous. Deserts were excellent. Apple tart was spectacular!

The creations here come from wisdom. The scallops are the best in the country. They know how to make ingredients sing although many other restaurants just talk about that kind of thing. Very very happy I came.

This is was my second time at Capo and my second bad experience.
I will start with the good part as the food is really good, which is why I gave it a second try.
On the bad side is the service ( which is probably why it s automatically added to the check ). This second time I booked it for my wedding anniversary, and I précised it while making the reservation, however, there was no mention or attention about it.
A tasting menu was available, we asked the description to our waiter, and it was described as an 8 course menu, which he listed : octopus, calamari, salad, pasta, branzino, salmon,NY steak, dessert ). It turns out it was actually a 6 course menu, they decided one of us will get the calamari, other one the octopus....Also, they started the menu with the pasta, which is odd as the waiter called it secondi, as he listed it as coming after the antipasti and the primi, and as it is normally served when he listed it and not when it was served.
When we tried to get some explanation, the waitress gave attitude and they finally gave us a spoonful of soup and a cup of ice cream to make it 8 courses....
Regarding my first experience, I was with two friends and my wife, I was paying so when the check came ( about $1500 ), I gave my card without checking and tipped 20%, after that, we had some wine to finish and the waiters were nowhere to be found, once I arrived home, I realized the tip was already included so they ended up with over 40% gratuity, which was my mistake, but they could have at least keep providing service, or maybe let me know when they saw I doubled tipped, I wouldn't have taken the money back but they could have offered a glass of wine or at the very least, refilled our water glasses which had sat empty for quite some time.
In conclusion, the staff at Capo is rude, incompetent and quite frankly deceitful for any restaurant but especially a restaurant of this caliber, devastating as the food is excellent.
