    The bourbon cocktails were fabulous. We leisurely ate an appetizer of shrimp and kimchi Brussel sprouts and sipped our cocktails. For our entrees my friends from New Mexico ordered the chef’s special of quail and lamb chops with spring pea risotto. They really enjoyed the dish. I had the Mustang chicken. I love this dish because it’s prepared as a vey thin cutlet with a horseradish and Parmesan cheese crust. We ordered a great bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon from Willamet, Oregon. Finally for desert we had the delicious toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream. Ryan was our server. He did an outstanding job as our server. He was knowledgeable about the food and wine. He took great pride in working with the Lawton family at Cappy’s. We close the place down visiting with Ryan about the city of San Antonio where he grew up.

    Always been good, but many hiccups that day. Food was cold-crab cake tasted frozen, couldn’t get the table we wanted even though it was available, waitress seemed hurried. Not a pleasant experience.

    We dined at Cappy’s because it was mentioned on a podcast I listen to. We made reservations through Open Table and was seated within minutes of our arrival. The food was delicious - I had the haddock my husband had the steak which he said was wonderful. However, I also ordered a side of brussels sprouts that were cooked perfectly (crispy) except they forgot to mention on the menu they are drenched in hot sauce (I think - honestly don’t remember seeing that and it’s definitely not on their menu online.)….couldn’t eat many of them because they were so spicy hot. And speaking of brussels sprouts, our server, who would rather have been anywhere besides at work that night, forgot to put them in with our order so I was halfway through my meal before I got them. We all have days when we’re not at our best, so I chose to give our server a lot of grace and I would definitely go back to Cappy’s if I’m ever in the San Antonio area again….but if I had the same server, with the same non caring attitude, he and I would have a conversation about it :)

    I can really recommend the paella and also the lamb chops. The service was excellent. For dessert you can’t go wrong with either the chocolate cake or the sticky toffee pudding.

    We went for brunch. The food and service were impeccable. And the prices were reasonable and appropriate, given the excellence of the experience. We also noted that, though Cappy’s has been there for decades, the ambiance and decor still have a wonderful contemporary feel. A+

    Impressed ! It had been a long time since we had such a nice experience ! Welcomed by Luigi and his great bar skills, he made us feel welcomed and he succeeded. The drinks were excellent and the food great. Cooked to perfection (that is not something I write often) our fish and seafood was well prepared and the vegetables fresh and well cooked as well. I would recommend a little less salt (you can always add but can’t remove) and a bit more heat on rice. Otherwise a perfect experience ! We will definitely go back !!
