Chaotic dinner. Restaurant was busy and understaffed. Extremely high noise level. Food was brought out before table was cleared from salad and apps. The food runner (not the waiter) was literally trying to place the dinners on top of the uncleared dishes. At this point we requested to speak with the manage/owner, who then humiliated the waiter right in front of us when it was not Enron his fault. Very disappointed.

Went for an early dinner on a Sunday at 4:30 pm. Restaurant was not busy at all. Order was taken for drinks & when the waitress returned with the drinks she took our food order. Out of the Lasagna. Waitress commented that Saturday night was very busy & they were out of several menu items including the grilled chicken. My husband ordered the chicken parmigiana, because lasagna wasn’t available. I ordered the Apple salad with grilled shrimp. The waitress said she would return with rolls. She did, but they were extremely burnt on top, blackened in fact. Our meals came. The Apple salad I ordered was unimpressive for $19. Consisting of mainly romaine lettuce, some cheese, some nuts & cranberries & slices of apple. The chicken in the Chicken parmigiana was rubbery, indicating it may have been reheated. The sauce was good. Very disappointing. We’ve been here before with a large party & everything was delicious. Unfortunately, not sure if we’ll return. Waitress was very attentive & friendly.

Service was a little slow in the beginning and seemed a little hectic inside. We had 3 servers walk passed us without giving us water, plates, or utensils until a guy who looked like he would be the bus boy gave us some. The server did apologize that they did a weird set up with their sections. After that everything moved quickly. Portions are big and food was very good. We also got 2 drinks that were okay but I would not get them again for 11$. Overall not to bad

Waitress assigned our table near kitchen and table in opposite end. Water was not refilled. Bread was not delivered. Owner did send complimentary chips. Waitress came by very infrequently. This is not first time service was horrible. The food is good quality but they can’t seem to anticipate service needs.

Everything was great as usual! Highly recommend the hot lobster roll! It was delicious! Server appeared to be relatively new or disinterested - however everything else was awesome!

Service was a little slow but good was very good as always, slightly overpriced. Bar was a little crowded and noisy, which spilled over into our seating area, which I’m guessing was our location because we were Open Table customers

Although our waitress was new, she tried very hard to make everyone's experience great. We thoroughly enjoyed our salads and loved the atmosphere. It made it very comfortable to sit and chat for two hours with our very dear friends.

We love coming to da Capo! All the staff is friendly, efficient and flexible! Food was delicious as always. We were on the deck which was great.... music piped from inside was a bit loud, but our waitress explained the setup and did her best to lower it!
Our favorite go to!

I ordered an ice coffee and waited 15 minutes to get the milk and sweetener to put in it. It was a
very warm evening and, by the time the milk and sweetener arrived, all of the ice had melted. In
addition, my salad was supposed to have mozzarella balls in it and my friend had requested adding
polenta croutons to her salad and neither items were in our salads. We both, still, enjoyed our salads
and, in fact, the grilled chicken we ordered to be added on, was quite good. It was not very busy, so
we were a little unhappy with how infrequently our waitress appeared and regarding the issues with
our order. At the same time, it is not fair to base your experience on one time, so will try again, probably, in the not too distant future.

There was quite a crash of several glasses of wine and one of our three patrons had wine splashed on them. While the server was concerned about cleaning up the floor he did not inquire as to whether any of us were impacted. The food arrival was slow and the chicken marsala was overcooked. We have had much better experiences at da Capo and would assume that this was just an off night for them and our overall experience has been good in other visits.

There was many open tables but we were sat right next to where the servers put in orders. They were noisy and at times unprofessional. Food is always consistent and tasty.
