    It was very hot in the restaurant. Also, they had a large party so they were consumed with serving them and left us out a bit. It took nearly an hour to get our food after we ordered. Also took a long time to get drinks. Our server apologized to us several times because he knew it took way too long . Good was very good and will definitely give them another try. They need to do better at serving large parties as well as regular customers.

    we had a pleasant meal and both our entrees were very good. The only negative was that it was moderately warm in the area of the bistro we were sitting...not in the bar area. It did seem to cool down after we were there for some time. We did not complain about it as the weather has been extremely hot and they may have been trying to conserve energy usage. But overall, a place with very good ambiance and food.. We will definitely return.

    It is pleasant when you enter a restaurant, don't have to wait to be seated, and someone is at your table with water and sourdough bread right away! Sadly, that's the exception not the rule anymore, but Capri Blu is keeping good service alive. The food was delicious and abundant, the server and assistant were on top of taking care of us the whole time and we enjoyed it. It's a casual vibe and there were a few families with children there. A bonus; they were playing a great 80's music soundtrack while we were there!

    Food was delicious. It was just too warm inside to ignore. It was a warm day and they had all the doors open instead of the air con. We asked if they cld turn on the air and they said they needed the doors open. It made for a sweaty dining experience.

    The food is delicious but next time I might call in for pick up instead. The service was subpar but I will say the gentleman that picked up our plates and continued to check our drinks were great. The waitress on the other hand not so much. She only took our order and gave us the bill when we were ready to leave. Hoping this was a onetime experience because.

    We arrived at 5pm on a Sunday and were seated immediately. We asked for the patio and it was wonderful having it to ourselves :) Service was perfect. They accommodated all our requests with graciousness. My filet mignon was tender and the wine reduction sauce was flavorful but not overpowering. Veggies were perfection. Molten lava cake was warm, moist and just the right amount of sweet. Staff were super friendly and kept our waters filled. Great experience :)

    Capri Blu offers excellent service and delicious food. Their wine and cocktail menu has much to offer, but I found the Lavender 7.5 to be lacking any lavender flavor, overly citrusy, ridiculously sweet, and most unenjoyable. Unfortunately, the live music was incredibly loud and most difficult to have a conversation over. Definitely make a reservation to ensure a table and if conversation is important to you, request a table as far from the live music as possible.

    Our time at Capri Blu was honestly terrible. I was expecting a lot from this restaurant, considering the photos online make it seem like quite an alluring experience. For 1, there was no one to seat us when we walked in. Now, if it were busy, that would be understandable. However, the establishment had about 3 tables seated. When we sat down, we were greeted by the beautiful noise of a dog barking inside the restaurant followed by someone screaming “STOP”. Our food was mediocre at best, it seemed to taste exactly like what we get at the frozen section of a grocery store for more than quadruple the price. On top of this, we sat near the bar and listened to music blasting from the kitchen for most of our meal. Only up until about 5 minutes before we left, someone noticed and turned it off. Overall, we were very excited to try this restaurant as we are new to the area, but we were extremely disappointed. The only upside was that our server, albeit brief in visits, wasn’t rude and our waters were always topped off.
