    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.

    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

    The wait staff did not know what was available on each plate. Two different steak types came with a fries but a third did not. Why? One steak was overpriced . Good steaks though. Initially we had the wrong meals served and then this appeared to cause undue, but quickly resolved, confusion when this was pointed out. Given that there were only 8 people in the entire restaurant at the time, it seemed an odd error. The music was simply too loud, especially for lunch and/or for older people for whom hearing is an issue. Pleasant ambiance but it was once a much better restaurant.

    Capitol Bar & Grill

    Hi Thank you very much for your feedback, the details mentioned in terms of service, have being addressed and we appreciate you bring this faults to our attention. Some of our dishes/steaks come with accompaniments and some others unfortunately don't as stated in our menu, this is due to the difference in cuts and flavor. Regards

    Attentive, friendly service. Food was very good. Quite noisy at times (turning the music down a little would help with this I think)

    Nice atmosphere, very busy on Sunday morning and as a result a few items (poached eggs for example) were not available. But overall a nice place to dine

    Staff need better knowledge of steaks. We had asked which steak is best to be cooked well done and were suggested the fillet which is a very thick cut of steak that had been close to burnt to achieve a well done cook. The Tiramisu was delicious and I had also ordered the fish that was cooked superbly.
