First, I couldn't make a reservation online so I thought they were booked but when I called, they had room. I don't think a restaurant should have a "find a table" tab if it doesn't work.

Three of us spontaneously decided to go to Capri on a Tuesday afternoon. Kym was our waitress; well done! 😊 The Caesar salad w/ chicken was wonderful; the pastrami sandwich was good but better if it had been heated; nonetheless, passed the test favorably. I had the Ruben; good, but not wow! The creme of mushroom soup had lots going... More

We were visiting Palm Springs and chose this place merely for the voucher on Restaurant.com. The atmosphere is very outdated and laughable but the food was really well done actually superb with good service !

I cannot say more than this. The restaurant while having a calming ambience explodes with flavor especially their filet mignon. I have to give it an A+++++++! Pure ecstasy on a plate The texture was just right and the flavor gave new meaning to the term of a perfect mignon. The service was quick but not too quick and the... More

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...
