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.

My only issue was that Cappy changed the way he presents the sticky toffee pudding, normally an outstanding dessert. The sauce was not smooth and creamy as the sugar had not been melted into it. This made the texture gritty and the overall taste a disappointment. Also, I found the ice cream an unnecessary addition.

Overall, a great place. Great food, excellent service and quiet enough to have a long visit with friends and catch up. Thought it was a little expensive, but almost everything was excellent. My wife's first creme brule was burnt and the second was a little cold. Still, I would highly recommend this place.

I made a reservation through OpenTable. I arrived early, and the restaurant was not terribly busy. We were given the worst table in the house, right in front of the kitchen and practically under the stairs. The view was terrible and it was so noisy, my elderly guest couldn't hear any of the conversation. Not sure why we were given this table under the circumstances.

Service was highly competent and very friendly. The cocktails were inventive and well executed. One of the best Scotch lists I’ve seen in a conventional restaurant. The food was very good, if not especially innovative. The ambiance was convivial and enjoyable.

I have been here many times, all the way back to when I was a kid, and it is consistently great. I came recently for my father’s birthday. The server was so friendly, energetic and timed everything perfectly. The food was amazing & cooked just right. The atmosphere is inviting & cozy. I really enjoy coming here again & again

It is a great place for a quiet conversation. In a world filled will concrete floors, metal tables, and high ceilings, Cappy’s is the beautiful, peaceful sanctuary you need after a hard week. The bread and butter was fresh and delicious. The wine was affordable and paired well with the entree. The entree was the kind that you forget whatever you were talking about and have to take a moment to just savor.
