Food was excellent as always, but we were seated next to a table of older women celebrating a birthday. While I hold no grudge for that, it did make it difficult to have a conversation.

We were entertaining a friend from NYC. She loved the lamb chops served on a bed of greens & vegetables. My husband was pleased with his filet but wished it came with mashed potatoes rather than polenta. I was happy with the salmon, lobster mashed potatoes & corn/asparagus. All was delicious and served promptly and attentively by Antonio “Tony”. Great meal & service. Thank you!

My sisters and I had a wonderful time on the patio, very chill. Food was excellent, as always. Cappy's nails the Eggs Benedict every time. And best Bloody Mary's in America/Canada/Mexico, as far as I've found. our server Alex was friendly and professional, took seamless care.

We don't go to Cappy's often but when we do we always wonder why we took so long to go back. The food is delicious especially the roasted vegetables. We sat upstairs and had excellent service. We like that they change up the art periodically and offer artists a new venue to show off their work to a different audience. Prices fair.

The food was delicious. (Recommend the steak and the chicken entree plus sides) Our waitress was very courteous, helpful & knowledgeable about the menu. First time there but my friend remembered it well. Our dessert was very good: N. O. Bread Pudding with ice cream. Great for special occasions. Definitely recommend reservations if possible.

Cappy's is hands down my favorite restaurant in San Antonio. I have brought family, friends, colleagues and my COO to Cappy's for lunch and dinner. The food is top tier and the service matches. The appetizers, entrees and specialty dishes and desserts have never disappointed and we've visited for 3 years. The chicken and duck liver pate, and the crab cakes are my favorites apps - my hubby adores the bread pudding. Every out of the blue and fish dish, the lamb chops and heck, EVERYTHING ON THE MENU is delicious. We just had the scallops on mofungo plantains topped with foie gras and it was spectacular! I am a forever patron.

Always a delight to dine at Cappy's. We had a party of seven and were accommodated graciously and efficiently. Dining on the deck is a plus in balmy weather.

Excellent food. Usually good ambiance but table next to us tonight had two people who were yelling. So difficult to even have a good conversation—jolting. Rib-eye was delicious and great selection of wine and nice celebration of grandson’s birthday.

Waiter was kind of a help-and-dash type guy. Food was really good. My prime rib was slightly cold but we dined late.
Definitely will return. Worth a try for all.

We had waitress Katie. She was very nice and laughed at all my boyfriend’s jokes, which weren’t really funny. Mustang chicken was great & I got chocolate cake for birthday free. Cake was delish. Very nice dining experience. We have been here many times and it’s always good.

My husband and I went to Cappy's to celebrate our 12th anniversary. We were not disappointed! The staff was very friendly and took great care of us from the hostess that seated us, the server that took great care of us and the manager who came to wish us a happy anniversary and offer us a free dessert! We will definitely be back to try the other dishes that Cappy's has to offer but the brunch will be hard to beat!

It was completely excellent. Our server was excellent, the food was excellent, and we had an excellent time. We had three different kinds of Benedict at our table and each individual felt theirs had to be the best.

First off, we have been to Cappy's for brunch numerous times and have no complaints. The wife and I decided to give their dinner a try for our anniversary (we had noted it in our reservation) . Afterall we've been before and enjoyed ourselves. Grilled oysters were a great start to our night, and we decided to accompany them with some champagne. No complaints so far. I ordered the steak special (8oz sirloin cap on chimichurri) and my wife ordered the scallops. Steak was slightly undercooked and lacked any crust, as if it were cooked on a cold pan/grill. It was extremely chewy but I powered through. My wife's scallops lacked any flavor and were very rubbery. Thankfully for her, there was a citrus sauce and foie gras to rescue the dish. The server wasnt very professional and she didn't seem to care to put any effort into helping us enjoy our night. It sucks when you see a birthday at the next table being celebrated by the staff with a candle and all. We were just hoping to have a decent meal for our special night.

We were looking for someplace cool and quiet for a relaxing dinner to catch up with good friends. Cappy’s hit all the notes. Beautiful floor to ceiling windows let in the natural light and lushness of the outdoors, but not its oppressive heat. We enjoyed a wonderful bistro dinner with a festive “hard” ice cream finale. Will definitely be going back.

For our weekly Date Night, we seek restaurants where the food and service are excellent, the ambiance is comfortable, and most of all, where we can talk conmfortably about our week. Cappy's hits on all cylinders. We loved the history of the place, the professional service, and the fairly quiet atmosphere. It's a little pricey, but ultimately worth the experience.
