San Antonio has a lot of good restaurants but when you need a change from Texmex or good Italian Cappy’s is one of the best fine dining experiences in town. The seafood dishes here are particularly good but the whole menu is well thought out....More

We met there for a great dinner, superb wine and great cocktails. The steak was delish as was the lamb chops and the chicken. There's really nothing more that we could have asked for in a restaurant.

Hi! I would call the restaurant to see what their hours are during upcoming holidays. I just reviewed them on Trip Advisor about our experience so I can’t speak for their upcoming hours. Best of luck! Ellen

I was there for Sunday brunch wearing a nice blouse and jeans. I don't know what it's like at dinner.
