Food was excellent!
Great deal - 3 courses for $33. Roast pork, eggplant dip and falafel were great. Wonderful service and food, as always! Love this place.
Im really going to miss Valeria, she was the best wine steward and always such a pleasant personality!
Please bring back the salt baked fish!
The food is AMAZING here. Especially recommend the spicy cheese spread and extra bread (the bread is divine!). Everything, and I mean everything, tasted delicious and the presentation was rustic and beautiful! Can't wait to come back and try more dishes!!
The roast chicken and the eggplant spread are still the best outside Athens. I could eat here every day.
Parking was an issue. Valet available on Friday and Saturday only. I dined on Sunday. The staff said there was plenty of free parking on the street when I called. That was not true. Once inside the service was good and the food was good as well. Great small plate experience. I would eat there again with the knowledge that I will need to plan ahead for parking unless it is a Friday/Saturday with valet service.
Our first brunch here Portions are perfect the food fresh, well season great for 2 3 people to share cool and spacious dining area.
Roberto was great! Seating outside was amazing. Thank you!
Good food. For two people, would pick about 3-4 small dishes, even though 5-6 is tempting! Would skip the flat bread.
I live in the neighborhood and this is my favorite restaurant on 14th street. There are many good ones but Kapnos is always exceptional. The menu changes so there is always something new to try. This time it was the Watermelon Salad, loved it!
The food was excellent!! Lots of flavors and great presentation. The service however was incredibly slow and we had to ask the servers several times for our drinks and such.
Excellent brunch spot! Service was excellent as always and the food is always delicious.
Took a little time to get served. Once we got going, everything was great.
Excellent experience all around. Highly recommend the Branzino!
Great food. Nice waitress. Great wine steward
Our group was at Kapnos for a mini baby sprinkle for my sister; we did the all you can each brunch. Of course my sister could not drink; they were gracious enough to make a special drink for her that was splendidly delicious. They were super attentive and answered all our questions. The food came out quickly and the quality was fantastic.
The food was excellent, and our server was very attentive. We especially liked the stuffed dates.
I highly recommended this restaurant based on a previous experience and was kind of let down this time around. I ate here with another group a few years ago and got the lamb shoulder. I thought it was one of the most amazing lamb dishes I ever had. Sooo...I was waiting until I could find another group to go back and order the lamb shoulder again. This time it wasn’t that great and I was very disappointed. It was very tough and not as juicy and tender as I remembered. It was more cut up into pieces instead of shredded and was dry. It was a little tough to eat. The first time, it basically melted in your mouth and was more like pulled lamb. Very tender and juicy. We also ordered potatoes with it which seemed a little strange. Like they were cooked in vinegar and that’s all we could taste. The ambiance and waitstaff were great. Not sure if I’ll go back.
The food came out a slower than when I anticipated but it was a very large fish that we ordered and it was definitely worth the wait
The octopus was excellent but I thought the brussel sprouts lacked a pesonality. The service was particularly slow in the beginning, and they were out of the wine we asked for, but ultimately the restaurant is a spot for a date, despite having a rather underwhelming night.
Horrible. We were rushed out. The staff actually turned the lights off during our dinner. Not sure why they accept a 915 reservation when they want to close at 10. As we walked out - I think the manager was in front of us. Mike Isabella needs to pay more attention to his restaurants. They are slipping one at a time. Sad.
This place truly surprised us, great food and ambience, service was excellent as well.
We LOVE Kapnos. Staff is super friendly and accommodating, even when my husband and I show up with our 9 month old. We always have a great time. Food include some basic Greek classics, such as tzatziki and taramasalata, but goes well beyond it with fantastic grill and fish dishes; cocktails are innovative and tasty, they have outdoor space, which we love, and they never disappointed! I personally don't find the indoor space particularly charming - a little cold. But still, it's a very cool place. Highly recommended.
Food was excellent. Moussaka superbly done in your own pan. Spreads excellent. A gourmet Greek experience with displayed barbeque.
Fantastic service really enjoyed everything!!
It is amazing! The food is very delicious and a unique flavor.
The ambiance on the inside is perfect for a date, but I wouldn’t recommend sitting outside. The waiters are slow coming outside for service and the surrounding area has a lot of bugs. Also - not a good choice for vegetarians!
Four people for dinner and we ordered four different foods. My lamb shanks were very tender and others had compliments. The others with lamb chops and bisteki had great food and wine and enjoyed it all.
Our server was Maria and she was also a great asset to the evening.
The food was delicious, but the service was awful! We ordered a lot of food to share; however, the server never ordered a significant portion of our food. We continually had to call over the server to refill our water glasses. There was problem with their speaker system and we sat in terrible feedback for a long time.
Brunch is a great value here. Amazing food, great drinks.
Very overpriced Greek food.
Great food and service. Our server Maria was outstanding.
It was way too hot in there last night, but all else was amazing!
Good food and a fun atmosphere but way overpriced.
excellent - great food better thanexpected
Wonderful meal and experience! We went to Kapnos for my daughter's high school graduation. She wanted to go because she watched George Pagonis when he was on Top Chef. The restaurant has an open kitchen and so she was able to watch him cook. Additionally, he was very gracious to come out and take pictures with her after our meal.
We ordered a few dishes for the table to go with the whole spit-roasted chicken we selected for our main meal. The chicken, which came with potatoes, was delicious. It was lemony and moist. There was plenty for the 5 of us and we took some home. For the sides, we chose the crispy brussels sprouts, fried cauliflower, sampling of three spreads (we chose tzatziki, melitzanosalata, and tyrokaftari) which were served with a wonderful stone baked flatbread with a subtle garlic taste. We also ordered the spanikopita. We finished everything! All the dishes had interesting layers of flavors.
We did save room for dessert! We order dessert to share. The loukoumades was fantastic - , cinnamon sugar donuts, greek coffee ice cream, caramel sauce. The coffee ice cream was really outstanding with a strong coffee flavor.
Everyone loved the meal. The service was excellent, the atmosphere is open and modern. I highly recommend Kapnos for a great experience.
I love this place. Every time I go to Washington I try and go there! Great food. Great service. Great wine. Great ambiance. And awesome bread.
Our waiter was great but very slow. The busgirl was the opposite, she tried to take my friend's plate why my friend was literally about to put the fork in her mouth, then while we were waiting for the check, she started wiping down the table getting crumbs everywhere. It was clear she wanted us out and it made us feel unwelcome. Wasn't our fault the waiter was moving slow. Cocktail list is pretentious, but the food was good.
Excellent service and menu selection. Expensive wines.
Been to Kapnos many times since they opened. It's a relic of what it used to be. Restaurant was empty and the bar was sparse. Gone are the crowds and fun atmosphere. Food is just alright, still high priced for the portions and quality. Where has all that great staff gone? They were the draw! They now have Happy hour specials that are reasonably priced, but very small portions: they're called "bites" and that is literal: a bite, so not really a bargain.
I can't see this place surviving long. Too bad!
