Absolutely loved the food and the atmosphere of Cappy's. This is a 5 star establishment by any measure except for the prices, which were very democratic. We loved every single thing we ordered. We did not go for the drinks this time, but the bar was looked stocked with the most sophisticated of labels and the wine list was pretty... More

Jumbo is the price! Taste was ok, but I've had much better. Friends had chicken salad, hamburger and fries. Their portions were large and very tasty they... More

Very fun place with lots of great choices on the menu. Servers were attentive and knowledgable about the menu. Prices were reasonable, portions were well-sized, and food was beautifully presented. Interesting interior with many paintings scattered about.

Ok, so first, let me tell you that we are seniors and my mom and I decided we needed a special night out. Last visit was circa 1992 . . . We were seated immediately, and our server, Daniel, treated us like royalty. We ordered a bottled of wine and listened to the specials, one of which was an heirloom... More

This is a very nice place to have dinner. Their food is delicious, and the 'bread' is actually muffins.....Very easy to find on Broadway...in Alamo Heights. They don't rush you through your meal and it a very relaxing place to have a good meal and good conversation

Our party of 7 had a variety of things off the menu. Crab cakes, fish with vegetables, steak frites, eggs benedict and a burger, everything was amazing, cooked just perfectly.

Brunch - They bring several assorted mini muffins with strawberry butter. The Sardou was very good and filling - spinach and artichoke over muffin with poached eggs and hollandaise. The gumbo was a little over file for my taste bur still good. It had massive quantities of meat and seafood. I also enjoyed the weaving and digital art on the... More
