    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!

    It’s a well know restaurant, though needs to get back to its old ways. Love the location just needs the old atmosphere back, and the waiters need to be retrained.

    Capitol Bar & Grill

    Hi Tomislav So sorry to hear we missed the mark on your visit back in January, we are always working on improving our service and training, and feedback is what points us into the right direction. We hope to welcome you again. Regards Desiree Saavedra Venue Manager

    The waiters and waitresses were slow to the responses from the customers. The starter dishes like Tuna Tartare gave me a stomachache. The atmosphere was nice but there was no air conditioning thus it was hot.

    From the time we arrived the service was amazing! The atmosphere was incredible. Large opened area with tables spaced out well. It was busy but not noisey allowing conversation. The food was absolutely perfect we could not fault all three courses. The oysters were so fresh followed by the eye fillet that melted in your mouth and the swordfish that was to die for. The side dishes of fresh steamed seasonal greens, the tasty mushrooms were our favourite. Followed by dessert. Selection "A Kubrick Era Dessert" the perfect choice for a unique dessert experience. We look forward to dining here again. ENJOY!

    Fabulous decor and great food. Not somewhere that would be your regular haunt, but fun for a special occasion. The service was reasonably attentive - perhaps a little pretentious, but not enough to detract from the experience.

    The food is always very good and the wine selection is pretty impressive. The bar makes good cocktails too. It's not cheap, but sometimes that doesn't matter.

    Drinks were slow to arrive when ordered in the restaurant. G&T was served in a very, very odd glass detracting from the enjoyment. Service was outstanding; we had advised in our booking that we had to be out by a certain time and the team ensured that this happened.

    Capitol Bar & Grill

    Hi Thank you for the review and the feedback , very sorry the drinks were delayed we will be addressing with the team . Hope you had a great night out! Regards

    I really like to come here for the romantic dining and get dressed up it would be nice if there was a dress code but it’s not a reason not to go just would be nice

    Capitol Bar & Grill

    Hi Thank you very much for the kind review, we are glad to have you back and always enjoying the dining experience. Surprisingly enough, we do have a dress code which is "dress to impress" our idea is to leave it to our guests to play with that and we love that everyone enjoys dressing up for the occasion. We look forward welcoming you again. Regards
