We were totally surprised at the quality and level of the food. We have eaten in restaurants all over the world and have rarely had such quality food from appetizer to dessert. The avocado crab meat appetizer was second to none. We would return to the area just to be able to visit Capri again

What a pleasant experience at this little Jewel of a Restaurant. We appreciate Great Customer Service because it enhances the dining experience. My husband had the 16 ounce Filet Mignon and even though it wasn't cooked the first time as he had requested, our server took it back without any hesitation and she even stood by when it was returned...

We were in Desert Hot springs looking for a local dinner choice. There are not many places to choose from, unless you want Mexican food. We didn't feel like driving into Palm Springs, but we should have. Its a nice restaurant within a Motel type resort. The ambience is non existent. And although we read some pretty decent reviews of... More

My mom and I were in Desert Hot Springs when she recommended that we try the longtime family restaurant Capri. We weren't surprised, given the great reputation it has enjoyed over many generations, but we were thrilled to find the food and service still top notch. Ellen and Chef Tyrone, along with Jody and others, were so attentive and proud... More

My dad really enjoyed his 90th birthday at this restaurant. The food (chef Tyrone) and service from staff (Ellen and Jessica among others) was excellent. We had a group of 19 which can be very difficult for some restaurants to handle. Our food was made fresh, came out hot, and was delicious. Our large group was seated in their elegant... More

Not many options in Desert Hot Springs the Capri seemed like the obvious choice for meeting my family. It was busy on Saturday but I was happy with service and food. I had the pasta primavera and it was creamy, crisp veggies, and large serving. I was very satisfied.

Anyone familiar with this restaurant will agree that the prime steaks served here are among the Best in the Coachella Valley, and moderately priced! 😊 What I like most about this restaurant is the consistency of their food quality, the efficiency of their staff, and the cleanliness of the facility, in general. Usually ask for Jodi as my server, but... More
