Sensational, as always. Creative and varied menu; frequent new items, seasonal and often locally based. This time we had a local antelope served as a type of schnitzel with a rich gravy. It was delicious, pared with a dark, rich draft beer. And the halibut entree was also excellent. Superb, personal service. As good an overall dining experience and good value as you'll find in San Antonio.

Friend and I shared the Mustang Chicken. It was delicious and plenty of food for each. For dessert the 4 of us shared the Coconut Cream Pie & Bread Pudding. The Bread Pudding was my favorite.....it was yummy and warm.

This time at the restaurant we sat upstairs and it was very noisy because there was a boisterous party there. Originally, it was very cold up there but eventually warmed up. The food is very good, but a little pricey.

I located Cappy's based on Open Table reviews and went to dinner with two business colleagues. Food and service were both great. The seafood paella was outstanding. We ate indoors, but the outdoor seating looked cozy and enticing. Would definitely return.

I love the Open Table reservation option. The staff was friendly and efficient. The menu always interesting and the meal delicious. I do prefer sitting in the sun room rather than the main dining room, and I would refuse to sit upstairs. Too bad the restrooms are upstairs.

Wonderful experience, very attentive service but not pushing us to finish quickly. We had the duck pate appetizer which came with a wonderful spicy sauce on top. Everyone enjoyed their entrees and drinks.

Different concept. Nice ambience. Beautiful outdoor dining. Good food. Even though we had to wait a while to get a waiter to the point of getting upset and one of the glass had lipstick, passed that we had good service and a very nice time.

They were very busy. Our server seemed overwhelmed a bit. I ordered the special, which was a pork chop. It was dry and over cooked. This is the first time in many years that i had a mediocre experience here. We drove an hour and a half to get there.

I will be back. As i said, this was the only time i had not experienced stellar food and service.

My wife and I went with 3 friends to Cappy's for dinner. The appetizers, pate and grilled oysters were excellent. Our waitress could not have been better. She knew all of the the menu items well and was able to recommend good choices to each of us. The Halibut was a big hit and was enjoyed by two of our group. The salads and the sides were also very flavorful. This was the best dinner I have had at Cappy's in a long time. It is always good, but this was even better than usual. I am ready to go back for another meal as soon as possible. The dinner and service were really outstanding!

The mimosas were great, the food delicious, the ambiance on the patio very nice, service friendly and prompt. No complaints. We were having brunch with good friends from Dallas and they were very complimentary of Cappy's. The eggs sardou, gumbo, and big breakfast with steak were all very good. We will go again often.

Absolutely the best service and food. Our waitress, Autumn, was phenomenal. From explaining each of the "off menu" specials, to making great recommendations for each of us, her watchful care made dinner an absolute success.

The specialty beverages were deliciously refreshing and as described.

We each ordered different plates, including some of the specials. Each plate was presented beautifully, and more delicious than the last one. Difinitely a food paradise.

My burger (ordered medium) was well done, and the fries were a little underdone. The mussels were great, and the salmon was outstanding. Least expensive Pinot noir was $40, which seems a bit high, but is was quite good.

We loved having a reservation because it can be hard to find a seat for weekend brunch in San Antonio. We had a table for 7 including one toddler and one child. We all ordered the weekend breakfast and it was delicious. We were seated immediately. It took a while to get our food but was delicious once it arrived. Our waitress was polite and attentive without being overbearing. The atmosphere was comfortable, cozy, and quiet enough to hear table conversation easily. This was our third visit to Cappy’s and we’re in love!

Cappy's is one of our favorite repeat dining experiences in San Antonio. It is our go to restaurant for a really nice, relaxing enjoyable meal. Cappy's specials are always very special and this time was no exception. The appetizer pate was mouth watering. I had the beef tenderloin and it was butter knife tender and perfectly prepared. My wife had the Tuna and it was perfectly prepared as well. A really great evening. Thank you Cappy.

Few wait staff can navigate artfully the line between attention and intrusion. Our waitress tonight—indeed, the staff every time we’ve been—have done so. Clearly, they are well-trained and equally motivated.
The food, as always, was exquisite. It’s just a bit pricey, but worth every penny. The
Wine selection is also excellent; even their “house” wines are superb.
