Past its prime?

Booked for a romantic dinner with my wife and was a little surprised we could get a table without trouble. When we arrived the place looked forlorn, the bar was empty and the restaurant had only a smattering of tables occupied. This in stark contrast to the buzzing M we visited years ago.

Having been to the Capital not he Bund in Shanghai we thought we had to visit Capital in Beijing. After catching two trains to get here and then having to walk for 10 minutes it was worth the effort. The setting is very nice and you can get a good look at the Zhengyang Gates from the outside sitting area.... More

We went here during the week and it wasn't very busy. In fact we started out on the patio, but when it started to rain we got moved inside (enough open tables). it was nice to get to have a drink outside with the lovely view, and then move inside where it was cooler when it was time to eat....

I had the suckling pig and then salted caramel tarrine for desert. Not tasted wonderful. Of course the view is the best part particularly beautiful in the evening

This spot came highly recommended and was well worth it. A great Sunday Brunch set in a great location and atmosphere. Walking distance to tourist sites, shopping, and speciality shops. Part of an enjoyable Beijing day!

We were recommended Capital M by some friends who have been living in Beijing for nearly 20years. From the moment we arrived until we left the service and experience was outstanding - faultless. Attentive but not overbearing staff, perfectly cooked and presented food - and the venue just incredible. Have travelled a lot in my life - this meal will... More

Although the location is great, we found both the food and service to be average at Capital M. Dinner at twilight overlooking Tiananmen Square was a lovely idea, but compared to other food in Beijing this meal was average at best and service rather inattentive.

Location and view is undeniably good, even if there is a fair bit of construction around. The problem here in my opinion, is they are simply overstretched, from service side, to kitchen and even maintenance of the venue. Congratulations on you business levels, however, keeping the quality is what will keep regulars coming back. As a Beijing resident, unlikely thatI... More

The location is superb. The food and wine are ok. The service is horrible. First of all, for a Saturday night, the staffing is very lean. Most importantly, the waiters failed to provide helpful, consistent and prompt responses to our simple requests. I have been most (if not all) high end Western restaurants in Beijing and the service of Capital... More
