    One of our steaks was a bit cold but other than that everything was delicious and the service was great

    Entrance from one side confusing as you have to walk through the restaurant to get to we’re they take you to your tAble. Ordered Bistecca florentine medium rare to share and in a steak resultant I expect perfection but no! Was good but not great

    The Capitol was a fantastic venue for a birthday celebration for my hubby and family. Both food and service were exceptional. Looking forward to returning again

    Thank you to Enya and the service was excellent. Would love to see some steamed vegetables on the menu eg, broccoli, zucchini or cauliflower. Thank you.

    This is an amazing restaurant in the 'brasserie' style - it is a large venue but still manages to feel warm and cosy. Fabulous food. Friendly, helpful and discreet staff. Great wine list. Loved it.

    Sad though that the menu has now become so limited. We used to enjoy a much wider variety of food. Was still very tasty. The t bone steak (share plate) is unfortunately not its $ worth. Overall a good experience as always

    Fabulous Family Father's Day. Tasty fresh food, and really good full bodied coffee. Friendly staff and service. More expensive than some breakfasts, but hopefully some of that extra goest to the lovely staff. We will be back.

    The crab pasta dish was amazing. The best oysters and my husband had the steak and it just melted in your mouth. Amazing service too!

    A large hotel-based restaurant, with a warm, clubbish atmosphere, very pleasant on a cold evening. The staff were courteous, mature and professional. The menu offered a good variety; and our two different pasta mains were well above average in quality, flavour and presentation. The drinks list emphasised cocktails; we were pleased with the choice of wines.

    Outstanding service, beautiful venue, lovely food. We both had the wagu for main and octopus for entree which was delicious. We were spoilt rotten for our anniversary and will certainly be back!

    A perfect night out, food was absolutely incredible. Atmosphere was delightful. We both got the rib eye and it was perfect. Only niggle was that I had ordered a wine before our meals came and it arrived after I had finished my dinner after I had requested the waitress to follow up with the order. The same happened with my husband's beer. However, I understand for a lot of staff it was the first night back after a long shut down period for COVID. Thank you for such an excellent night, it was so nice to be out and about again. Will definitely be back soon.

    From the time we arrived until we left we had excellent service! Perfect way to spend our Valentine’s Day dinner out. We had the linguine with crab and the lamb Ragu, and we highly recommend both dishes. Great dinner out!
