“Sophisticated and good taste, nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Portions are not typically American, they come in small quantities, I imagene that this plays an important factor regarding prices which are not high, it is more like an European restaurant. Very nice!

“Exceeds our expectations!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We specifically selected this restaurant due to the rave reviews on Tripadvisor. The atmosphere, food and service did NOT disappoint. In fact, it was the BEST restaurant experience we had in San Antonio that week!! It's not within walking distance of the Riverwalk, but WELL worth the effort and drive. I heartily recommend.

“Great Surprise”

Scheduled a dinner meeting at Cappy's and we were all impressed with the food & service. The bread was excellent and we had several refills. Nice relaxed atmosphere with excellent service.

I will be back!

“rude service if you have a baby”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

We were not greeted and sat on the table 15 minutes without a waiter approaching us. We went in for a quick lunch so our daughter would remain well behaved throughout the meal and we just had to leave since we are denied service. Will never return!

“Food is too fancy for me.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

We went to Cappy's because of its high Tripadvisor rating. The hostess was very nice and the service was very good and prices weren't bad. But I don't know what I would have eatten if they hadn't been having a prime rib special that night-- which was very good. I don't like restaurants where ALL the things on the menu are unusual. Just a little too fancy for me.
