Great View and good western food

Went here about five years ago (back in 2010) and had great memories of Capital M. Decided to revisit this restaurant a couple of weeks ago and it still had the breathtaking view. Definitely worth a visit for those craving some western food with a touch of elegance and feel of luxury. They do some... read more

We decided to try it during lunch time and well, it was ok. Nothing fantastic. There were only 3 tables including ours. I guess, it would be packed during dinner, because of the 'view'...In the picture of this place it looks nice but, that's all you are gonna see just the 3 buildings. It was to hot to sit outside,...

The maitre d was charming and helpful, but the service generally was lacking. Not sure if it was because they did not speak English. The menu choices for me personally were disappointing, and the food was mediocre at best. The view from the terrace is fabulous. Not a restaurant I would return to

We booked a table at the terrace at 7:30pm. And we called to postpone a bit because of the traffic and insisted to keep the table at the terrace. HOWEVER they didn't save the table for us and the manager from Hong Kong did not even apologize. Ironic that they charge 10% for this kind of service ! I will... More

This is "western food" and a broad menu. I had a crab soufflé which was good. The service was a little haphazard, having to ask for a few things several times. What is good is the view where you can see the Qianmen lit up.

This is my second favorite restaurant in Beijing , such a beautiful view and elegant design. Ofcorse car parking is hard cause can't park outside of the restaurant which isnt so pleasant. But service is very nice and Sunday brunch is just magnificent. If you want have romantic evening this is the place to go.

We were very excited to go to a nice restaurant in Beijing and we chose this one because it's mentioned in a few websites. The place is cool in its own way, the service was good, however the food is 5 out of 10. The quality and the preparation were mediocre at most. Paid 300usd for 3 people, which i... More

Having been to M on the Bund, my friends and I wanted to try its sister restaurant in Beijing. Though it may not have as stunning a view as its sister (not helped by beijing's weather), Capital M is every bit as good inside - with outstanding and beautifully presented food, excellent service and a very peaceful ambience.
