    An interesting, tasty salad was on the menu! With a nice glass of wine and coffee for a liquid dessert, everything was beyond wonderful! Our waiter, Ryan was top notch! Cappy’s never lets us down.

    As always, best place for a special occasion. The food was amazing and the service was first rate. Never disappoints. One suggestion would be that when the nightly special is offered and the price is almost double to the most expensive item on the menu, the waiter might want to include the pricing as they present the nightly offering. I have no argument with the value of the special I ordered but it would have saved the surprise when the check came. That aside this is our go to place for special occasions. Thank you to everyone there

    Food and ambience were fine as always. Service was good but our waitress was loud and brash. The most irritating part was her hovering over me as I was trying to figure the tip. I felt she was being pushy. Not what I expect at Cappy’s.

    My Ranchhand Benedict was room temperature, the potatoes stone cold. We were tired and hungry, though, and in no mood to send food back, and my husb was very happy with his burger and excellent wedge salad. Our waiter inquired and was very attentive. It should be noted on the menu that the Ranchhand has a (weird pink) Bernaise sauce on it, not Hollandaise. It was perfectly awful. We'll probalbly try Cappy's again some day, but we won't rush back, just not good enough, even though we deeply appreciate old-line restaurants like Cappy's and La Fonda.

    This is the second time I’ve been here and it just gets better. The food is very flavorful and innovative. Our server Justin was excellent. His suggestions made it seem like he knew us and what we enjoy during a dining experience. I got the ribeye and it was perfectly cooked and tender as a filet. My wife got the burger and it elevates above any burger. We got the shrimp nachos and they had more shrimp than we expected. I will continue to recommend this restaurant to everyone I know.

    The service is excellent. Our server was attentive without being overbearing. His knowledge of the food and beverage menus was quite helpful. My bride enjoyed the oyester appetizer. I enjoyed the Brussel sprouts and shrimp. We ordered the salmon and lobster mashed potatoes and the paella special. Everything went quite well with the Pinot Noir from New Zealand. Of course, there's dessert. One of the few sweets that I refuse to share, Cappy's Sticky Toffee Pudding. We each indulged in our own. Overall, we celebrated yet another anniversary at our favorite place to celebrate.

    Cappy's pork milanese is, in my opinion, a signture dish. Thick and juicy, with an excellent breadcumb crunchy crust. Side dish is a tasty arugula salad and tomato. They used to cook the tomato, which I didn't like that much, but now they serve it raw. I recommend this dish.

    We try to eat at Cappy's at least once during our stay each time we go to San Antonio for business and pleasure. The food and service are always excellent. We highly recommend Cappy's along with their sister restaurant, La Fonda on Main.

    Food and waitresses were top notch. Initial check in with the hostess was not the usual friendly face you usually encounter when coming in to give your name to the hostess. She was a bit abrupt and no very welcoming. Just FYI. We always have very good and friendly service at Cappy’s. This was unusual. We were bringing out of town guests and was a bit off putting initially. Waitress made up for it in the end.

    My wife and I have been to Cappy's many times through the years and it has always been a quality and good food restaurant and I would add that most of the times the service has also been very good. This occasion my wife had a small problem with the sauce in her salad, the waitress picked it up and delivered a new one which was exactly what my wife wanted. We strongly recommend Cappy's and plan to visit every opportunity we get. Vicente Cisneros

    Cappy’s never disappoints. This continues to be our go to place for special occasions or Sunday after church lunch. The service and food are exceptional! My husband and I shared the Wedge salad and the Halibut entree. The Halibut was so moist and tender, the presentation was beautiful. Our dinner guests each had one of the daily specials: Swordfish and the steak. No complaints from either. You can always tell when the food is good, the conversation ceases and we focus on the meal! We highly recommend Cappy’s!

    Outstanding! Stopped by for lunch on the patio before a trip to the NcNay with family from out of town. My brother-in-law ordered the off menu duck confit and declared it the best thing he’s eaten in months. He was also blown away that the ever sociable Maggie saw me and stopped by just to say hi. Atmosphere, service, and food can’t be beat.
