“A few teething problems but very promising”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Five of us ate here recently so we had a good cross-section of their menu, with starters, mains and desserts sampled. All of the food was well cooked and authentic, which makes a big change for a western style restaurant, while their kitchens are semi-open to view which is always reassuring.
They still unfortunately exhibited the very Chinese habit of bringing all dishes out together, but I had a firm and friendly word with the manager and he apologised, making sure we had our starters before our mains (the clue's in the name guys!). When we went there was a special offer 50% off the food, so without this it would have been quite pricey 80-100 kuai for most choices, but I'd say it was a special occasion kind of place, so it's worth a try.

Dear LiJames77,

I'm sorry for the slow response but I have only just discovered that one of our happy customers has listed us on TripAdvisor.

I would like to thank you for your positive review and let you know that we have been working hard to improve our service since our first month of operation. We are well aware that our foreign clients prefer to have their food served in proper sequence and that our servers shouldn't hover behind our clients while they're browsing through the menu. We have worked hard on these service values and I hope these problems are solved.

I hope you do come back (if you haven't already) and give us another try.

Sincerely,
Alex

“Caprice Restaurant Great Food, Great Atmosphere, Reasonable Prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Caprice restaurant was great! I very much enjoyed the casual, yet classy atmosphere. The flavor and presentation of the food was also fantastic. In fact, not having been back to the States in almost two years now, while eating I felt like I was already back home! The pizza and cheeseburger with onion rings were my favorite, yet the carbonara and fettuccine alfredo were also quite tasty. For dessert we ordered the chocolate lava cake and the tiramisu, which where pretty good as well, next time I'd probably get two lava cakes and skip the tiramisu. Their beer, wine, and mixed drinks selection was quite impressive as well. I will certainly be going back there any time I get a hankering for some accurate, relatively affordable yet delicious western food here in Xi'an. Great atmosphere, great food, great service! All in all a great experience.
