Reviewed August 8, 2021

The last time I dined at the capital was under Eric Chavot with two Michelin stars. I recall that Christopher Lee was holding court with his wife, daughter & son in law. I missed the Outlaw years. The chef has big shoes to fill. I...had a great two night stay in the hotel and we ate very early one evening before going to the Proms so we had the small dining room to ourselves. I really enjoyed the meal; I think my main course was up to Eric Chavot's standard billed as "Rump of new season lamb – celeriac purée, salt baked celeriac, spinach, broad beans & red wine jus" It also had very tasty chanterelles. All that was missing was a sauce spoon, which is something you never see. I shared a starter which was simple but excellent, "Hummus, raz al hanout, fried broad beans & crudités". I was really please to see this on the menu, I cannot recall seeing crudités except in France. Overdue a comeback with the rise in the number of vegan. The service was faultless. The wine choice was very good. My wife had developed a taset for Cuveé B&B Grand Cru Champagne Pierre Moncuit Franc from our stop at the bar the evening before.More

My fiance and I are huge seafood fans so he took me here for my birthday. Chef Adam was there and it was exciting to see him in the kitchen working feverishly. We were greeted by the host at the beautiful Capital who took our...coats. The food and beverage director, Asif Bajwa, greeted us and took us to our table. Not only did he treat us to champagne for my birthday and dessert wine, I saw him engage with every table and share his extensive knowledge on wine. He is so warm and engaging and really made the night extra special. The vealbread with cockles appetizer was immense! Highly recommend.More

This is a newly re-opened restaurant in the “small luxury hotels chain” in the Knightsbridge area. It is small but very cosy and absolutely worth a visit even at Christmas Eve. The staff is attentive from the very second you reach the bar until you...leave the restaurant – just excellent service. We aimed for the tasting menu and the accompanying wine-pairing which proved to be an excellent choice. No misses but several highlights, e.g. the Scallop Ceviche was really good. Excellent wines and a mini-tasting of ports pointed us to the fabulous Graham’s 20 Years Old Tawny. We will be back!More

We booked this restaurant thinking it was Nathan Outlaw of which we found out it hasnt been for around 10 months, so our fault for not looking into it in more detail. The fish selection was good and they had my favourite John Dory! I...found the restaurant too bright and as it was not busy felt being watched constantly by the waiting staff. However the food was okay, cannot compare to what it was before. Probably not return as there are plenty more places to choose in the area, we were shopping at Harrods so thought it would be a good place to go. I think if you were staying here you would be happy with this restaurant though.More

We went for Christmas lunch and we were welcomed by a very courteous door man and then friendly receptionist and warmly welcomed by Director of Food & Beverage. He is a very genuine and experienced hotel professional and a very gracious host . Food was...delicious and it was one of the most memorable Christmas family lunches we had . Salmon was very well presented as well flavours of cheese were the high lights of the lunch. Turkey was really nice and we enjoyed very much . Service was flawless and Christmas Decoration on tables was very much suited to a luxury hotel like The Capital . We received a gift on our way back and was given by Director of Food & Beverage and he mentioned it’s from hotel management. It was a really nice gesture from hotel and highly appreciated . Lobby Christmas tree and fire place were perfect for this festive period . What impressed us as well that few times we left to toilet and each time restaurant staff member showed us the way to toilets not just by directing . A true luxury five star experience. We will return and highly recommend to our friends .More

We were walking around Knightsbridge at lunchtime and came upon the Capital Hotel and it's restaurant. Wow! The welcome was lovely and the food exceptional. There was a nice list of wines by the glass and the menu was wide enough that there was a...real choice from meat to fish to vegetarian. My mutton was perfectly cooked as was my husband's plaice.

We have been to these restaurant several times for special occasions over the years, and we have always enjoyed the food and the dining experience. Today was however another story. On arrival, we were shown to the bar, and asked 3 times by 3 different...people whether we had a reservation, during which time we were asked to enjoy a drink in the bar (for which we were of course charged). We were finally shown to our table 30m after we arrived, and when we received the menu, we were told 'it had changed' - so only 2 options were available, either game-mushroom-celeriac, or take the game out and you have the veggie option. The starter and the main tasted the same - both were covered in mushroom sauce, and the main was the size of a starter (a piece of guinea fowl 6cm long, and 1 wide), served with (I counted) 10 4mm square cubes of a root vegetable. Arrive petite 4 courtesy of the restaurant, and here we have 4 gellies coated in sugars. Now all of this would have been borderline acceptable had we not booked through a website a lunch deal, which included half a bottle of wine. The first bill to come included the wine charge - apparently when we were presented with the wine list and asked to pick (and we chose one of cheapest wines anyway) nobody thought to mention the wine included in our deal was not on the list. We were also charged £55 for a bottle of prosecco, most of which we took home (to the disgust and mockery of the staff, who thought us cheap), where a glass was £9. I will leave you to do the maths. All in all we paid over £170 for 2 dishes that had the same mushroom taste, and Prosecco I can find in Tesco for £10. So, the verdict is, we will not dine at this restaurant again, and if you are in the area, I suggest you avoid it too.More
