Service was very attentive even though almost all the tables were full. We were a large table and had a reservation and our table was reserved which was nice that they were ready for us. We had tea for 4 and 2 cheese fondues. I don't know what all the complaints are on the size of the pot of cheese... More

The "tea" in the afternoon tea took a back seat! They have house black, roiboos and green tea blends and when I asked what type of teas were in them, the waitress could not answer. For an establishment that sells tea (like Teavana or David's Tea), the selection was very, very small. The savouries were actually quite good but the... More

I purchased a "deal" on living social for $28.00. Made a reservation for 1:00, arriving there a few minutes early and they did not open the doors until 1:00. Fortunately we were able to sit in the lobby of the hotel next door to wait as it was sprinkling with rain. We were seated right away, but had to move... More

The chocolate was too sweet. The fruit was fresh but the cake bits were dry. There were not many people in late at night. I could have been a whole meal.

It was a friend's birthday and we got our table right away, the staff was very nice and friendly, the cheese and chocolate fondue were both good, and we were satisfied with going there, the place is little but a nice place to be in. We didn't had a problem with anything.

The Capstone Tea and Fondue was close to our hotel and we had seen customers enjoying fondue as we'd walked by. We decided to have an evening visit after supper for a dessert fondue. We'd noticed varied reviews on tripadvisor but we weren't using any kind of coupon etc. The menu was clear, the staff friendly and we got exactly... More

Went there on Christmas Day 2013 for the choclate fondue. They take their last seating at 9:30 and we arrived shortly after. Was surprised that we were seated and the guy working also gave us extra time to order. Since I never had a fondue before, he patiently explained the option and made recommendations. The fondue and the coffee were... More

I've been here multiple times, always with a Groupon. I see a lot of people complaining about booking the Groupons, but it's all online and all easy. I always have booked it this way and never had an issue. It's not the company's fault that people can't figure it out, it says Location/Reservation and then Groupon reservation. Super easy. The...

We went on a groupon so it was 50% off. I wouldn't pay full price for this. The cheese fondue was not a meal just bread, grapes, cherry tomatoes and pretzels to dip. The chocolate was a little bit tastier because who doesn't like chocolate. The problem was the items to dip the chocolate into.The grapes were repeated again, they... More

I learned about Capstone via Groupon. I attempted to book several times. They require you book online & don't provide a phone #. Their site does not allow for the Groupon reservation to be booked. I contacted them via their web page but over 2 months later-still no response. groupon is refunding my purchase but I'm very disappointed that I... More
