Capriccio Grill Peabody Hotel - Memphis
Lunch in Capriccio Grill offers a more casual menu of modern Southern comfort favorites and daily specials.
Our waitress was wonderful- Gia I think was her name...
The prefixe Valentine menu was grossly overpriced. All of the food tasted pre-made. It lacked flavor and was made for appearance not taste. The courses were prepared well ahead of time; the server was putting my entree in front of me before I was even finished with my salad. Each course was rushed including the check in an effort to turn the table over. I have dined here before and the experience was pleasant. The prefixe menu and rush made this experience very different. The product received was not worth the price paid.
Very disappointing-the hotel and restaurant are absolutely beautiful. But unfortunately the food and service extremely disappointing. As we checked in, they were not very pleasant and didn’t even acknowledge the fact that we were celebrating a very special birthday. And I later received an email from open table that I didn’t honor my reservation-so obviously the check in service wasn’t done properly since I said I made a reservation on open table. The buffet was little to be desired-not much of a variety at all. Two of us decided to order off the menu since there wasn’t much of a variety for the buffet. Our waitress was nice, but I do not feel we received the best service that could be. Asking for anything ex: coffee, juice, our check took a kind time to come to us. Overall, I would not eat here again.
Expected a lot more for the price. The food was very bland. Filet mingnon was trash. Would come back if food improved.
Not overly impressed with the food or service, there are far better restaurants in Memphis. If you’re looking to impress a date this is not the place for you. Very disappointed.
Filet mignon was $48 for 6 oz wee little steak. Steak was a little tough compared to what I can buy at Wal-Mary. Lobster claw tempura was rubbery and flavorless. Maybe overcooked. Asparagus was good. Server had a large party besides us so we spent an hour of our 2 hour dinner waiting for her to come around.
Beautiful restautant with a sophisticated ambiance. The food may have been better if it wasn't so salty. We had the calamari that was well cooked but very greasy. I would recommend this place if you are looking for a lovely ambience more then amazing food.
really nice sunday brunch. we were planning to order off a menu, but the brunch was special and a nice surprise
Food was good enough. But I would expect at a restaurant charging nearly $40 for a small filet to have the waitress being attentive. She literally went 10 to 15 minutes between stopping at our table and the place wasn't even 20% full. We had to get salt & pepper from the table next to us because the waitress was MIA. And we never were offered fresh ground pepper even though we could see it at a station about 15 feet from us. We were ready for a second cocktail and she ignored our empty glasses about halfway through our meal. We had to ask for steak knives which took over 5 minutes with our steaks sitting getting cold. Food was good but service very dismal. Take our advice and find a different place. Really disappointed.
Very good restaurant in a beautifully old hotel!
In the lobby of the Peabody. Taking everything into account, service, ambience, food quality, noise level - this is the best restaurant between Chicago and New Orleans.
Everything is so good, very pleasing to the eyes and the service is fantastic!
Meeting friends before the theatre
The food lacked flavor and when you spend what they are asking you either expect he food to be good or the portions to be good. It was neither. Service started out ok but turned poor. I’m assuming some important people came in so we were thrown to the farthest reaches of caring. Would never go back.
The food and drink was excellent! We had brunch and the pressed coffee was the best I've had. The only issue we had was with our waitress charging for something we didn't get and then twice didn't get the ticket right. Overall great dining experience!
Great selection on menu. Good service attending to all details
This was my second time to enjoy Sunday brunch. It was just as good as the first time. My expectations were met. The food is amazing and the waiters are very attentive and accommodating. Cannot wait to go again. Lovely experience.
Mixed drinks were great and our entrees were really good! Drinks took 30 minutes to get and that’s only reason I would not give it a higher rating. Our waiter was covering too many tables.
Everything was great until our waitress got a couple of bigger tables.... she basically stopped checking on us. I was going to get another drink, but she never came until at least 10 mins after we were finished with our entire meal. Then she asked how our checks were and we said separate; she brought one check, and again did not return. We had to ask another staff person to fix our checks.
The food, though, was amazing! Would definitely recommend it and would go back so long as I didn’t get the same waitress!
I really enjoyed the Sunday brunch at the Peabody. It had been many years since I had been there so it was almost a totally new experience. My only regret is that the pates that were served when the brunch was in the Skyway have been discontinued. That was something that always made the brunch stand out from others around town.
Service was excellent and we enjoyed the variety of foods that were offered. We certainly will be back--in fact, I'm coming with another group this Sunday.
Menu on Open table not representative of menu when we dined ,
My wife and I went for her birthday along with our infant son. We requested a corner table for the stroller and got it without a problem. The waiter was very attentive. The food was tasty with large portions. We were there early (6pm) and the restaurant was relatively quiet, which we enjoyed. They also validated (partially) the parking from the Peabody Hotel parking lot, but you have to ask. Overall, it was very pleasant, and the Peabody Hotel lobby (and the ducks) are worth seeing!
We made breakfast reservations to ensure that we would have time to eat before the duck parade. Our order of avocado toast, pancakes, and French toast took 45 minutes to arrive at our table. My friends avocado toast did not have the additionally ordered eggs and bacon. One person had to remain at our table to pay while the rest of us went to watch the ducks nearly, 1.5 hours after we arrived. The manager did discount our meal in an attempt to improve our experience.
Service was really bad. Took over and hour to get our food from a pre fixe menu and restaurant wasn't very busy.
We asked the waiter several times before asking Maitre D who finally got our food since the waiter kept saying it would be right out but it turned out he never submitted our order and later said the kitchen messed up. He disappeared again and another waiter had to get our desserts (10:30pm) which my dessert choice had to change since they were then out of the dessert I ordered at 9pm from the Pre Fixe menu at $98/plate + drinks, tax and gratuity.
Felt trapped at the restaurant since we needed to eat before joining the New Year's festivities. We checked into our 9pm reservation at 8:50pm and were seated immediately since there were so many empty tables. I was surprised at the time since I thought the Peabody would be a great option for the festive holiday but after the terrible experience, I am no longer surprised. Even after all the issues, the waiter brought an incorrect bill charging for additional items and had to correct. We spent nearly 2 hours there and the food was one of the worst meals we had during our trip. Very disappointing.
We were not aware that there was a Prix Fixe menu and, once informed, we were not concerned with the price.
Our party of seven was seated 55 minutes after our reservation.
The hostess graciously comped our second round of drinks with an apology for the delay.
None of the three specialty desserts were available when we were ready for dessert.
Water service was slow such that at one point all seven of us had empty water glasses.
A bottle of wine was offered to us, and accepted, in a good faith attempt by our waiter to help the evening along.
The service was mediocre at best even though they automatically added a 20% tip to the check. In addition, when I made the reservation for 5 two weeks ago, nowhere did it say there would be a limited menu for $98 per person. That would have been a game changer. However, once we sat down to eat at 8:30 PM on New Year’s Eve it was too late to come up with an alternative. A heads up from someone would have been appreciated.
I would’ve given this restaurant 5 stars, but our waiter started off pretty rude and standoffish. He became more polite towards the end of the meal, but had already rubbed our party the wrong way. Our steak was cooked at the correct temperature and was able to be cut with a butter knife.
When we made our New Year's Eve dinner reservation, we were not told that it would be a price fixed dinner at $98.00. We were not happy that for two diners we were charged a 20% Service Charge. This is totally unacceptable. We ask for the hazelnut dessert which was being offered only to find that it was not available. The food was good, but we will never return to this restaurant. We feel that we should have been notified that there was a set menu and large service charge.
We took the opportunity while in Memphis to visit the historic PEABODY HOTEL and since it was mid-day we decided on lunch at the grill. Service was great. Menu was limited and a small salad bar with soup was tempting.. but we decided on a "Power Salad" and cup of soup for my wife and I opted for the bbq pork sandwich. The sauce was a little too sweet for me and the meat not very tender... but the service and wine was good. It's just step from the famous bar, fountain and ducks so it was a great venue.
Service was rushed, then disappeared! Lamb was very over cooked; drinks were pricey and small pours.
Enjoyable night at The Peabody Memphis. Ducks, Cocktails in the Lobby, dinner in the Capriccio Grill and our accommodations were great fun.
We had a Christmas meal here and while the food was good it did not quite match the price and service a bit. However, being Christmas Eve staff levels were probably low.
We went on Christmas Day and had their 48 dollar 3 course meal special. It wasn’t good. We had a sad limp small salad to start, roast turkey with a tiny drizzle of gravy for main course..(no potato) cold veg. And for afters we had cold apple strudel with ice cream. It was enough to make your gastric juices dry up. The only Chardonnay was 51 dollars a bottle so we bit the bulletin and the 20% service charge was added to our bill which we would have paid anyway.
Went for Christmas and the prix fix menu was good. The people were nice and the price was good
We made our reservation for Christmas dinner after very carefully reviewing the menu. I even had a call with the hotel to confirm everything ahead of time, because we knew what kind of experience we were looking for and were considering multiple options.
We were extraordinarily disappointed to find that they were apparently out of, or just failed to serve, multiple specified items on the Christmas dinner menu. As a result, the overall portions were unsatisfactory for the price of the meal and the missing Brussels sprouts, gravy, and sweet potatoes just left us unhappy...and feeling misled.
We expected something lovely from the Peabody, but left feeling disappointed and we won't ever return to Capriccio Grill for a meal.
We ate here for Christmas Eve lunch. For the amount that we paid, I expected to get better service. We knew the lobby bar would be packed and made reservations here instead. This is passable for a breakfast if you stay at the hotel but not a nice dinner (we had to ask the waiter for everything we needed.) We will do chez phillipe next time or eat elsewhere.
Service was really poor, manager was never available to come see us. Very disappointing.
We go every year in December. We love the Peabody! It’s an experience every time that makes our holidays special. Everything good in Memphis is culminated in the food at the Capricio Grill.
Thought that we had made a reservation for brunch to find out they didn’t start brunch for an hour after our 930am reservation. No apology. All downhill from there. Cold eggs and sausage. Poor selection. Pastry right out of the refrigerator. Terrible experience. Please eat somewhere else.
Arrival: Had to look 3 times to find our reservation
Had to sit in a booth for 4 (table for four not available).
Could not hear/understand server. Had to request waters.
Served my soup and salad at the same time??
Food was mediocre. Taste and presentation.
Server disappeared. had to ask someone to find server to get a check.
Not a very good experience. Hope a manager gets to review this.
