We went for restaurant week dinner. Service was great. Food came out timely and was soooooo delicious. I took my friend who’s been to Greece many times, it filled our cravings. We sat outside on the patio for dinner and it was perfect and relaxing. We ordered tzatziki, dolmades, falafel, spanakopita, seared lamb, and baklava. I’ll be back soon. The whole experience was perfect.
It was my wife’s birthday and we went for brunch but were forced into restaurant week menu as my parents wanted it. The pork was badly cooked and we were not at all impressed. Unfortunately was a bad experience for my wife on her 40th birthday!
Great ambiance. Fantastic service and well thought out and delicious food. A bit on the pricey side but good portions. We visited for resturant week and were impressed. Would come back and recommend.
Air conditioner can’t keep up with open grills on a hot day.
I've been to Kapnos 4 times, with family, friends, having dinner and happy hour. Every time it was a great experience. The food quality is stable and to all ours satisfactory. The service was always great. We never had trouble making reservation. The restaurant setting is so welcoming and relaxing for our gathering. The only thing to note is it is slightly on the pricy side, but overall worthy of the money.
I met a friend here for DC Restaurant Week. Great portions, wish I could’ve eaten more. Nice atmosphere, great service. Will have to come here on a regular day to see if there is a difference.
Restaurant week 35 for 4 course. 55 for 5 the food was delicious. Service was awesome, and I am in a food coma. Fire
Exceptional meal and fabulous staff! Couldn't say enough about this experience. Variety of seating options really enable tailoring the environment.
Very good food. Very good service. Very good restaurant week options. We’ll be back.
This was one of the best meals we’ve had in DC. We went for Sunday brunch. $39 for all you can eat and drink. You cannot find a better deal. The service was awesome. As soon as our drinks were empty, another would show up. You have a choice of 3 different mimosas or 2 different sangrias. The menu was quite large for a brunch. Everything we ordered came out within 5 minutes of ordering. It was all delicious and very authentic greek. We will be back.
I think the food its really standar, as a traveler and food lover i think this place dont worth the money for the food quality! The restaurant have a nice ambience and service
We arrived at Kapnos on a Friday night to find the restaurant not very crowded but extremely noisy - mostly because of an echo-chamber effect! Fortunately there was a table outside on the quiet patio, and that made the evening quite enjoyable. If we had not been able to get an outside table, I'm not sure we would have stayed. No complaints about service or ambience, which was prompt and efficient. The best part is the food: genuinely Greek, really excellent and reasonably priced. I would come again for dinner as long as the weather is good and one can sit on the patio!
My husband and I had a fabulous meal and the service was great. Appetizer was delicious and the Branzino came out piping hot sitting on top of a delectable broth with vegetables. A definite go back to.
The service was amazing and the food is incredible. I have been for both brunch and dinner. I have been amazing at the quality dining experience both times.
Bad acoustic since music was low but the place was noisy.
Great evening with friends. Able to share and taste multiple foods.
We loved this place. The bacon wrapped figs and branzino were delicious. The spreads and salads were very good too. Very nice staff.
Wonderful food great service and fantastic atmosphere the best brunch I've ever had worth ever penny and more
I had heard good things about this place including the 100 best in the Washingtonian. Unfortunately this was not my experience.
We really enjoyed our dining experience! The lively contemporary atmosphere is appealing and upbeat. Two of the four dishes were outstanding. The dolmades might be the best stuffed grape leaves I’ve come across. Not your typical filling of humdrum grains of bland rice but a toothsome flavorful package with a dab of lemon cream magic! Do not miss the eggplant spread, the flavors explode in your mouth. The snapper and the hanger steak were both very good but not truly inspired. The service was excellent, courteous and well timed. This was a great date night choice. Next time we’ll bring friends for some good table sharing!
We chose the tasting menu for 5. The mezze were out of this world-consistently textured dips and an array of tasty, traditional dishes. From the sea offerings were flavorful. The meat, however, was served in a trough-like dish that was heavy and unremarkable - didn’t include the highly touted chicken but 2 lambs and lots of pork chunks. Needs refinement. But all in all a very solid meal. Great ambience. A bit on the long side - three hours. Would definitely recommend dining-perhaps not the tasting menu.
First time there, it lived up to expectations which is hard to do on 14th street corridor. Really good food, really nice atmosphere and service.
Great food and drinks! Kapnos does not disappoint!
Food always exceptional. On this occasion we enjoyed the taramosalata, roasted baby goat and wine. Kapnos is a neighborhood gem.
Three of us enjoyed a nice dinner on a Saturday night, starting with the mezze and adding shrimp, lamp chops, and lamb stew. All were good; nothing outstanding, but good. Service is friendly and prompt. Parking is a nightmare. The noise level was OK, but on a busy Saturday night, it would be very loud indeed.
Kapnos continues to be one of the most consistently good restaurants in DC. There are always 2 or more dishes that always reach the "Excellent" standard, and the rest are always nothing less than "Good."
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.
