A Caprice Ratings and Reviews
Food and view were both great however service was under par from the moment we arrived.
We have been to the restaurant handful of times and service was always great. We had a group of 6 so gratuity was included. I’m wondering if the lack of service was due to the fact that gratuity was included.
We love this place - great location, quiet, romantic, very good wait staff. ONly one gripe- they not allow "reserving the prime rib" when you make a reservation. Monday is Prime Rib night, so if you want it, tell them when you make the reservation. We went early and were told wee were too late - all ordered. This is an odd quirk.
We showed up about 10 minutes before our reservation time and had an issue finding parking. Luckily, a family was leaving, so we were able to make it. However, we didn't get seated until 30 minutes past our reservation. Despite over booking, the food was excellent with a beautiful view of the bay.
Special anniversary dinner and it was treated as such by service staff. Great time from start to finish. Fantastic butternut squash soup, beets tower apps. I loved the filet and my wife loved her scallops. Good portions to be satisfied by the end of meal. Trio of chocolate was just right.
Three guests and I enjoyed a lovely evening at Caprice. Fabulous view of bay and SF. Very good martinis and wonderful Chardonnay started us out right. The butter lettuce and Caesar salads are excellent. All our entrees were outstanding, saffron seafood risotto, sole, and halibut. Creme brûlée over the top good. Service unexcelled.
I don't recommend this restaurant. They let you wait 1 hour even if you arrive 10 minutes before your reservation plus additional wait for the food. They let people seat who arrive 30-40 after you. Service is so terrible. Host is terrible. Food is lackluster.
Longest wait time and worst restaurant I've ever been to. Doesn't deserve any stars at all.
the food and service were amazing and the waterfront views were just amazing , defenitely made date night truly special and both my boyfriend and I can't wait to go back. Its worth the drive and are server was absolutely amazing and recommended next time we request a window seat. look forward to many great meals ahead.
Went for Prime Rib but restaurant failed to tell us we had to reserve it when we made reservation. Very disappointed but had a nice meal. Pappardelle and shrimp was excellent. Spouse had Cesaer salad and filet, both very good. Unbeatable views and valet parking. Next time we know to reserve the Prime, but too many great restaurants in Marin.
Jewel on the water... Great views of Golden Gate and San Francisco across the Bay with ships and ferries making crossings, arriving and departing... But its about the food and ambiance - and A Caprice is top notch. While this was a special occasion (birthday), A Caprice is a charmer every visit. Staff are helpful, not obtrusive, and willing to make extra effort when asked.
Beautiful, great service and nice menu. We would return. Our table was in a cramped corner so we will ask for something else next time. Service was friendly and efficient. Our meals were delicious! Although the portion of salmon was tiny, maybe a skinny 3oz. So if you are hungry have a starter.
We dined there with friends who had shared with us that the restaurant is for sale and may not be there much longer. We were somewhat disappointed. The restaurant was warm, the food was OK but nothing special and it was expensive for what we received.
A special view of Racoon straights but otherwise a disappointment.
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with halibut which was delicious. I loved the quinoa as well, it was flavored very well. We also really enjoyed had the butterscotch crème Brule and the berry sorbet. The service was impeccable and the view was wonderful.
The history and view/location are unique in the world and worth the less than perfect things in this review. Friendly valet service solves the parking space challenge. Inside, It is loud and hard for a table of four to talk comfortably by 7. The food is good and so are the wine choices without being over the top. The seafood is cooked perfectly. The vegetables on the dinner plates are skimpy at best. Get a first course or you will leave hungry unless you eat very lightly. The desserts are generous on comparison to the main course.
Plan on reminding your busy waiter about the birthday you noted in your reservation and when you arrived. Service varies by work load and you may go through your whole meal without extra water if the waiter is busy with other tables. Space is tight and the waiters put up with the crush and expect you to do so too.
Caprice has been one of my favorite restaurants for special occasions since I moved here 42 years ago. I often requested to be treated to dinner at Caprice for my birthdays. This time, friends were visiting from Pasadena, and they wanted a nice view. We all just loved the experience, in all ways. We especially thought our waiter was about as perfect as they come; he was knowledgable, peaceful, pleasant, and attentive.
we noted in reservation that we were celebrating a birthday, and told our waiter as well. However, they did not even bring a birthday dessert. My "medium rare" , was a "medium to well", not rare at all. High end restaurants typically have a mouche bouche and/or small treat at the end, Caprice had nothing.
