Elegant, friendly and convivial dining in a convenient location towards downtown, several universities and theatres and museums and cultural centers. You can always count on a welcoming, warm atmosphere at Cappy's, lovely food, creative art on the walls and an ambiance of kindness and content.

I had the ribeye steak with couscous. The couscous was crunchy and difficult to eat with my cracked tooth. I ordered it, because I assumed couscous would be soft. Not sure if it was undercooked or suppose to be that way. The favor was good, I just couldn't eat it. The steak knives were not very sharp. I had a hard time cutting the steak. I used my butter knife to show my husband how dull the knives were, as the butter knife cut similarly. The steak was cooked perfect, tasted wonderful. They simply need to sharpen their knives. I asked for a second knife, but it wasn't better. We ordered the shrimp and brussel sprout app and it was fabulous. My husband had the salmon and he said it was great.

Wonderful meal, excellent wait staff and the entire team was so accommodating. We grew from a party of 6 to 8 people and they were most helpful in making sure we had a good experience. They even lent me a shawl when I discovered I had left mine at home.

Food wise they cooked my lamb chops perfectly and my husband’s ribeye as well. He lived the bone marrow butter. If we return to San Antonio we will definitely go back!

I have been coming to Cappy's since 1999, but I never feel like I regular here like I do at places I dine at just as frequently (examples of places we frequent: Chauma Gaucha, The Palm, Maggiano's, Whiskey Cake, La Fonda on Main, Perry's, Ruth Chris). I guess it must be because we sit outside and do appreciate that we can bring out well mannered service dog. We generally always sit outside on the patio. I would like to bring to your attention that without fail, the restaurant nearly always falls out on crediting open table reservations and it is a thorn in the side having to respond to reservation fall outs secondary to a deficiency of the check in process nearly every single time we dine here.

Cappy's is a long-time favorite; it never disappoints. It doesn't identify itself as a seafood restaurant, but I think it has some of the best seafood in town!

This was our first trip to Cappy's as out-of-towners who visited on the recommendation of family members who live near by. The food was absolutely exceptional and nicely plated. The portions were just right and left us both feeling satisfied with room to share a delicious dessert. Equally important and impressively well done was the attentive service. From the moment we arrived our hostess, wait staff and restaurant management ALL made us feel welcome and important. We left feeling certain to return in the future.

My dad’s meal was great. My fish was uncooked, even after sending it back. They comped my meal which was appropriate. We’ve been to cappys many times and will go back. They seemed overwhelmed by the Mother’s Day crowd.

My husband took me to Cappy's for Mother's Day brunch. The food and service were excellent. We sat on their outdoor patio, which was nice. You would never know you were near the parking area, though I feel metal bistro style furniture would be suitable for this style restaurant over plastic.

Food was good as usual. We will go back but I hope that some changes are made to the brunch menu. It could use some updating. Most of the items including the special are poached eggs so those should be good. Mine was OK. Gumbo was good. Cobbler was good. This is a favorite brunch spot but I’m less and less excited about the menu.

My go-to place for out of town friends and special occasions. My wife and I have enjoyed Cappy's for over 20 years. Saturday was the first time I have ever been disappointed........everything ordered by our group was excellent (as expected) with the exception of the grilled oyster appetizer......the oysters were microscopic! However, this one bad experience with a single dish does not change my overall opinion.......still love Cappy's!

We were very disappointed. We have been coming to Cappy's for a while now and it is generally very good. We took my sister who was out of town, my son, who never goes out to eat with us. I have the scallops, they were wonderful, my sister had the halibut, it smelled fishy, but she said that it was good. My son had the rib eye, it was awful, tasted like charcoal starter, and it was over cooked, and tough. My husband had the filet, it was over cooked. When we arrived my sister asked what was good and my husband replied "I have never had anything bad here." Well, can't say that anymore. We didn't say anything at the time because we didn't want to make a scene. The waitress was non attentive as well. Hope this was just a fluke.

Dining at Cappy's is always such a pleasure. Outstanding hospitable customer service from the front house team, delicious and creative cuisine from the chef prepared with fresh, quality ingredients and a refined yet relaxed atmosphere with the feel of having a meal at a close friend or family member's home all make for a relaxing and enjoyable experience. I had a delicious weeknight dinner of a pepita encrusted softshell crab (the appetizer special of the night), PEI mussels and my favorite "must order" side dish, brussel sprouts (the best in the city, in my opinion!). Cappy's warm, slightly sweet, multi grain house bread is splurge worthy as are their decadent scratch made desserts. Cappy's is the perfect destination for a relaxing, everyday meal or for a special occasion celebration.
