Fantastic food and great service!!
We had the tzatziki and hummus, which were both very good. The brussel sprouts were excellent, as was the charred octopus. We had Kapnos own wines, both white and red. Both were very nice.
Locating a parking spot was difficult.
Food was delicious. Service was excellent. Would definitely go again and recommend to my friends for sure.
-I made a reservation for 2 adults and a baby when I came the host had only one set in the table. I asked for 2 then she told me I should have told them that. I replied to her telling her I did and she seemed to be offended with that. Then they sent me a new host( I don't think you need a host after you are seated but ok).
-we also took the 80 usd all included. We asked for dessert and we're not told it wasn't included until we payed!
-Also I had a stroller and had I lift it to be able to get in since the other door was closed " for inclement weather" there was not inclement weather that day!
-Food is great!!
Fantastic as always, both the food and the service.
All six of us were very pleased. It was the first time for all of us and we were treated with great warmth and courtesy Two of us arrived before the others and we were seated at our table for six and our waiter patiently explained items on the menu we were not familiar with and made excellent recommendations. I am telling many friends to try Kapnos
My friend and I were able to converse easily without having to shout across the table. The food was very good, but I felt the restaurant was overpriced. I don't think I'd return despite the good service and quality of the food.
This was so great. Service was incredible! Dave from Quebec was amongst the best wait staff I've ever had. Would 14/10 go back.
The 14th St location was terrific, especially the service! Being a vegetarian, the flavors and taste hit the spot - even gluten free family members were stuffed and happy!
I really like Kapnos. I've been 2x and I've have a great experience each time. I brought my uncle who was in town here because it has a solid menu to give a newcomer lots of choices that aren't risky. We got the trio spreads, brussels, and lamb chops. Everything was really excellent and flavorful. The one downside is that they only have 1 chicken dish. So for picky eaters, may not be the best. Tons of red meat and seafood options, though they seafood portion is smaller than their meat portions.
I had a nice cocktail, beer, and wine selection. The menu is DC prices, so not a place to go for cheap eats. Easily ~$120 for the two person meal I had (2 drinks, 1 app, 1 side, 2 person main).
The roasted meats are the star here. The rest of the food is marginal. And the prices are ridiculous. I had a yogurt parfait for dessert that was about 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt, some honey drizzle, and some crumbled filo dough. $11. The yogurt was so thick I could not enjoy it. This required no imagination to put together.
We went for brunch. Nothing special even though things sounded good on the menu. If it had roasted meat, it was better. Potatoes had no taste.
I was disappointed and won't be back anytime soon. Servers were all excellent.
A group of my friends went there for weekend brunch and opted to do the all you can eat brunch. The price was reasonable for all the food we ordered and the dishes were amazing. I especially love their baklava.
The tasting menu was amazing, can't recommend highly enough.
Birthday celebration. Excellent food and service.
Exceptionally knowledgeable and gracious service. The food was really delicious, especially the cauliflower, the gigandes, and the baby goat. Very good wine list.
The receptionist was unforgivably rude. Apparently, she doesn't know that she's getting paid to smile.
Had a friend in from out of town. Had always wanted to try Kapnos...I am so glad I did. Great food—Greek classics that are updated. Excellent service. Great ambience. The way the space is divided, there is a vibrant bar scene that does not make the dining room loud. Great use of space. G, and now Kapnos, are two of my go to restaurants!
Delicious food, great service and fun place for a group of friends.
Kapnos is no longer new, and has inspired at least four clones under the same ownership, but it still prepares outstanding Middle Eastern small plates. Every dish we ordered, from spreads to vegetables to grilled meats, hit the mark. The small plates are presented in a relatively orderly progression, which facilitates ordering with a group where not everyone is sharing each dish. The noise level was reasonable during the early-evening period when we dined.
Excellent food and our server was fantastic. We had two small children with us and we were made to feel very welcome.
We really enjoyed the food and wine we had at Kapnos. Excellent Greek food full of flavor, mostly fore roasted. The word Kapnos means "smoke" so it makes sense. We also tried the gluten free bread and it was excellent and went well with the spreads and other selections. Our waiter was fantastic and recommended a Greek wine to compliment our meal. My only complaint is the noise level - but no more so than the deafening level of most hot spot restaurants these days
Really awesome food experience. The roasted chicken was EVERYTHING! This is a must try restaurant. And if you are a Top Chef fan this restaurant is a must!
The short rib phyllo pie is just wonderful!
Food and service was excellent! I have recommended Kapnos to several friends. This is a nice place with out of the ordinary selections. Pricey but worth it for a special occasion but not intimate.
Fabulous food, great service. It was our wedding anniversary and we could not have been happier with the choice we made. We will definitely come back again.
The atmosphere and our server were wonderful. The food was good, not great. It was a bit pricey for the size of the plates and the quality of the food. It was a fun place to visit and a good place to eat family style. The Greek wines they have are delicious!
Amazing. Perfect meal. Was so full but still wanted more. Great night. Amazing service. Your will not be disappointed.
The food was excellent but the service was terrible.
Seating was a bit crowded and the noise level was high.
We ordered the Chef's Tasting Meal. It included tons of food, so save room as you go - and all courses were delicious!
Fantastic experience, phenomenal food, highly professional wait-staff. Definitely a go-to any time I find myself in the DC area in the future.
Dishes were very flavorful. At lunch on a weekend, dining room was far too noisy with music at high volume and customers trying to speak over it. Previously we had a table there and it was impossible to hear each other without raising our voices. All nearby customers were also speaking at high volume to be heard over the music which quickly becomes annoying. This time we opted to eat at the bar where the music was lower and customers were able to chat at a more normal volume. Because I enjoy the food here I return but I have to consciously avoid their peak times or avoid their main dining room because it's just too loud.
Disappointing after reading some good reviews. Started with trying to seat us at small, dark table when restaurant was hardly full. Service was just lackluster. Very small pour of wine. Food ok but not much. Cost 3 $ for 1 piece of bread. I was hungry when i went home. We wont go back.
Good time. Most plates were amazing (spiced baby goat) others wee just okay (falafel).
It’s always good... but please, please, please, put the moussaka back to menu!!! We used to go on Mondays only for that!
Food was amazing and service outstanding! Really enjoyed our meal. Highly recommended!!
First time for brunch. Dave was our server and did a great job! Explained the brunch options as we opted for all you can eat. He asked if we had any allergies or preferences and recommended dishes he thought we'd enjoy. He was spot on and kept sending out dishes until we tapped out. Great experience. Will definitely be back again for brunch.
Great food and Dave D is an attentive server who makes solid recommendations
Enjoyed our Saturday Brunch. I wish that some restaurants would actually serve a Lunch menu on Saturdays instead of Brunch.
