The location is great The building is elegantly decorated The weather was fantastic and it was very nice to dine on the terrasse with its magnificient view The wine which was a malbec from south america was good but a little too warm before we ask to cool it a bit though it was a red.

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

My friends and I celebrated my birthday at this wonderful fine restaurant. Food was great; the views of Tainanment square are also worth it.

The decor is beautiful and it's location is the envy of the town. And that's what attracted me to come and visit, but I found my experience a bit troubling as the restaurant was very full and the service seemed a bit rushed. I had reservations and still had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated for afternoon tea.... More

A great experience for a romantic meal at Capital M. The staff were gracious and helpful, and the view of the South Gate was beautiful. The food was delicious!! I highly recommend this restaurant if you'd like a nice night out.

The location is not one I am very familiar with but it's great. Not breathtaking like its sister restaurant in Shanghai but arrive early and take a walk around. Service is excellent with a warm welcome on arrival. Sit outside on the terrace for a while if weather permits. Food choices are somewhat limited or perhaps too similar if you... More

We were recommended this restaurant by (Western) locals. It was lovely. An oasis of calm in the City. Great location with a lovely rooftop seating area almost looking over Tianamen Sqaure (although not quite). Would def recommend.

Great location not far from Forbidden City. Gorgeous decor and cups and saucers covetable. Warmly welcomed by staff. Afternoon tea was lovely. Scones well baked but we're served cold and sadly cream was from a spray can I think instead of clotted. This may be hard to find in Bj. Sandwiches and cakes very nice. Would have liked a little...
