Service and food were excellent. Not a particularly “cozy” place due to the hard surfaces and high ceilings, but the noise level is low and you don’t feel cramped. Good for a date. You feel welcomed and well taken care of.

Our server & host were friendly and professional. We ordered a cheese board and the waiter described the various cheeses, where they came from, what their overall profiles were like. Very helpful. I would recommend to others and would come here again.

It's busy but you can hear each other across the table. The space is small so it's a tight fit. Food was fresh but average in taste - not spectacular.

Valentine’s Day and an early/afternoon reservation. The warm initial reception turned to inattention over the evening. We each ordered $32 Surf and Turf and wine. Received an EXCELLENT steak ...but a (shocking) lack/absence of “Turf”. The Lobster was almost completely missing!! Two tiny red scraps (claw scraps?) were LITERALLY the size of US 25 cent coins!! Unbelievable.
No explanation. No apology. No checking back to see if we were ok. It was early, so they could not have simply “ran out of” lobster for their “Special Occasion” menu. Disappointing and hard to understand. Lobster aside, we liked the venue a lot and might try again with their normal menu.

Nothing memorable about our visit to Capita Club 16. We took advantage of Restaurant Week to try it out, and it was nothing special. The food was okay to good - the kitchen messed up my salad with no special orders or customization, a dish with root vegetables didn’t have a ton of flavor and was mostly rice, etc. The host was very unfriendly, and the service felt rushed. We will definitely not be back.

Quick dinner on a Friday night. Drinks were excellent. They have a sparkling pino noir that's awesome. I got the rahmshnitzel which was perfectly done. I really like this restaurant. Nice location right downtown. Small space to eat outside if desired. Good for people-watching on a lively weekend night. Highly recommend. Good food. Nice people. Not too stuffy not too hip...just right.

Food was fantastic though service was a little slow given that not very crowded. Biggest problem was temperature. It was very cold.

The German food was not authentic and the the schnitzel was tough and weird. The brats and sausage were ok, but not very tasty. In all, a rather bad meal.

Love this place. Best brunch and decided to go for lunch. Ordered the burger and it was delicious but could use a little seasoning. Will definitely go back and try other things off the menu. Our waitress was friendly but the gal (she had a tattoo on her forehead for reference) refilling water was crabby and never smiled. I said hi twice and even smiled at her when I was coming out of restroom and she was standoffish and a bit rude. Other then that we love this place.

We love trying restaurants that we never even knew were in our area. This was in a very cool older building in downtown Raleigh that had that awesome rustic charm. The staff were friendly, the Bloody Mary was just the right amount of spicy and the food was so good we ended up being part of the empty plate club! Very nice experience that made us want to go back again.

I was in a party of 2 for brunch. We had the “Eggs Norwegian” and the “Steak and Eggs - medium, over-medium” with mimosas. The food presentation was pretty and everything was extremely tasty. The mimosas were also tasty and had generous champagne portions. Our server was very friendly, polite, and willing to provide recommendations.

The only ding is the space is rather echoey. When we first arrived, it was just us and two other parties. However, by the end of our meal, the restaurant was nearly full and quite loud.

Always enjoy the Shaved Brussels salad and changing, seasonal menu. It’s fresh and I love that it’s locally sourced. The ambience is very Cool and we always enjoy meeting friends here for dinner before an event!

The decor was wonderful; however, the waiter took over 15 minutes to come back to our table to take our food order.
The value was good, but food was VERY salty. From the creamed spinach to the potatoes..too salty. Overall though I would recommend, possibly just an off day for them.

My only complaint is that the "crispy cheese grit cake" was neither crispy nor a cake. It was just regular grits with a slice of white cheese on top of it. I say actually make it into a patty of sorts, like a potato cake or crab cake. Otherwise, the food and service were great and overall a good value.

We came here for our anniversary and it was a mistake as this is tailored more towards every day dining. The food was okay at best, half traditional half Americanized. Service wasn’t bad but wasn’t the best

They asked us if we were celebrating and brought us a dessert then charged us $8 for it anyways, won’t be coming back

My husband and I were very excited to try this German/American restaurant. Unfortunately, the food was very poor. We ordered 4 items off the menu. The currywurst was pretty good (sweeter sauce than in Germany), the schnitzel wasn’t very good. They overdid the herbs and seasonings. Then the sausage plater had sauerkraut that again was not the way they make it in Germany. Finally, we ordered the pretzel which was tiny for the price and very stale. The service was good, very attentive. But overall, not impressed. We left disappointed.

I had a great experience! This restaurant popped up a few times on open table as a recommendation but to be completely honest the picture didn’t look inviting. After Swank clothing raving about it on his post while printing shirts I thought let’s give it a shot! I’m so glad we did. I do have 2 recommendations: take a new pic with the bustle of the people on a Sunday brunch- show your people ) Thanks!
