Great Christmas Eve dinner. The whole roast lamb shoulder is divine.
We were celebrating a birthday and so sampled a little bit from every section. Highlights were the various spreads, saganaki, broccoli with smoked eggplant (a must IMO), and octopus. Zucchini fritters were tasty and well-done, but I would probably get something else from the veggies instead, personally. The lamb was good, but a little underwhelming in comparison to the others. Should've gotten the goat! Our waitress (Maria) was fantastic and so helpful.
Recommended by our Lyft driver who is also a chef. Fantastic food. Got appetizer platter and roasted shishito peppers. Ended with fried calamari. All A+.
This place has really gone downhill. Disappointing.
We were a group of 6 seasoned travelers and restaurant goers. We ordered a variety of dishes from the chicken to octopus, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, roasted eggplant and a caviar appetizer. Besides the chicken being brined a bit too much all parties enjoyed their dishes immensely.
We sat at the counter and watched the kitchen work their magic. Our waiter was outstanding and guided us the menu perfectly!
The physical arrangement was such that the very noisy bar was isolated from our table, and we could enjoy great conversation. The food was creative and collaborative. We ordered the lamb-shoulder for the table, which was delicious and fun to share. Mezze were also delicious, and the greek wine recommended by the waiter was outstanding. Very enjoyable overall.
We had a wonderful experience at Kapnos. We had the unlimited brunch and everything we had was excellent. Our server David was extremely helpful, managed some strict dietary restrictions, and was sure to keep the food arriving at our table without us even asking. Highly recommend this restaurant for brunch!
One of the best brunch places in all of DC without a doubt. Very good courteous service, food is fast, and drinks are good. If you go, you have to get the haloumi cheese.
We had the roasted chicken, salmon with couscous and brussel sprouts. Each dish was absolutely delicious. The smokiness in the roasted chicken made each bite delicious. The crispiness of the sprouts on the bed of sweet potato mash and sprinkled with pomegranate seeds was mouthwatering and the grilled salmon was cooked to perfection, moist and equally special. We were in a hurry to go to a play and the wait staff kindly brought our food promptly. I would like to go back and linger to savor each morsel. Absolutely delicious meal! You can't go wrong here!
My husband and I had a nice dinner at Kapnos. We ordered the spread sampler and enjoyed the smoked eggplant spread best. We also ordered the fried cauliflower, marinated lamb, and bifteke. They were all delicious, and the portions were large enough that we brought home some leftovers.
We had a wonderful dinner! Every aspect was fabulous!
Two dishes were served without a major component and were forgotten about until server was notified once the diners had consumed most of their entree
Bartenders are great, server was very nice and attentive, great selection of craft cocktails and can't wait for their warm drinks to return. I do like the food a bit better at the Arlington location, but like the bar and ambience better at the DC location.
Never had a bad meal here. Every time we dine here, we say we should eat here more often. Love the mixed grill (not on the menu - but fantastic).
The food is always good but the service is sometimes slow (mainly long gaps between visits).
Had a communal dinner for my bday, 6 of us. Service was way over the top fantastic and food extraordinary.
Their brunch special is amazing. Can’t beat it in DC!
We went for brunch after loving Kapnos for dinner. Delicious food, perfect service, and the bottomless brunch was a great deal. Will definitely be back!!
I've been to this place several times, liked it as always. This time it feels it's got quieter, not like before. Maybe it's because it's Sunday night ... hope the quality of the food and service won't be affected by the recent scandal of its owner ...
Great restaurant for sharing dishes. Food is delicious and service was terrific.
Food was great, extremely fast service, locals place which was awesome!
The four of us enjoyed every one of the seven not-so-“small plates” we ordered. Lamb shoulder, calamari, eggplant, brussel sprouts, and several others, were all winners!
The food is trying to do too much--every dish is overpowering, including the sides, and often with flavors that clash with one another and drown out the tastes of the underlying foods themselves. You can barely taste the cheese in the haloumi for instance, or the vegetables in the broccoli or cauliflower, because the sauces are too intense for anything else to come through.
Great food, great service, great experience! Love Kapnos!
Wonderful greeting and server. Food was delicious and a fair value. We shared family style and it was a really pleasant experience. Two things I would suggest: warm the stoneware plates as our entrees were served on cool ones and only the first serving was warm -and- individual and smaller serving spoons for the spreads. One giant tablespoon for the dips was unwieldy and mixed up all the flavors. Still, fun time and very good food!
Wonderful service, delicious meal. We especially loved the stuffed dates and variety of gluten free options. The Greek coffee ice cream was the best ice cream we have ever had.
We got the lamb and chicken platters with Brussels sprouts and broccoli. Absolutely fantastic meal, everyone in our group absolutely loved it. Definitely a must go in DC
Fabulous food and fantastic service!!! The unlimited brunch is a MUST DO!!!
Suzie and Maria are the best servers. Always happy to see us and take amazing care of us.
Nice waitperson and service. Food was exceptional!
First visit to DC and Kapanos...great food!!! Very nice people...hostess was super, bartender was awesome, server was great! First time to try baby goat...it was VERY good! My wife is a vegetarian and she loved it too. Cheers!
The staff was warm and attentive. Our selections were beautifully prepared and served. Food was wonderful - looking forward to our next visit!
Table server came by once then we didn’t see him again for 30 mins. I had to get up from the table and flag him down to take our orders.
Fun time with great food and service. We’ll be back!
Amazing service and food!
Kapnos is a terrific spot for a group weekend brunch. All of the dishes were delicious with great options for sharing among the group. The prices were very reasonable and service was excellent.
Definitely get the Brussels sprouts. The spanakopita and lamb were great also.
Great meal while in DC...great food with a great atmosphere...definitely worth a return meal on my next visit.
