“A Restaurant in a Hotel (not a "Hotel Restaurant")”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014

Although Capistrano's is in the Embassy Suites, it is more like a very nice, independent restaurant. The food was truly great. The chicken soup was to die for. Everyone in my party ordered something different, and we were all raving about how good it was. The only complaint was that the server did not write down our orders. That's ALWAYS a red flag, and it turned out to be an issue here. She goit one of my co-worker's pizza order wrong. Here's why they still get 5 stars: when the error was discovered, the very kind manager came over, apologized, and comped the pizza. He even offered a complimentary dessert (which we were too full to accept). We were all very impressed. So, if you are ever in the Irving area, and you are not staying at the Embassy Suites, you should definitely consider trying Capistrano's. You will not regret it!

“5-Star Dining disguised as a hotel pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

Amazing food -- I would go back just for the cuisine. Good wine selection, and food was well presented and tasted fantastic. Terrific to get a healthy meal while traveling, (though they also had a variety of burgers and the like.) Ask for Audrey!

“Rehearsal Dinner and Wedding Reception”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

We just had our wedding at the Embassy Suites-Ceremony and reception. The rooms were big and very clean. We had many guests stay there and everything was wonderful.
Keona and Henry were wonderful with our ceremony, reception and rehearsal dinner. If you are looking for a venue, a weekend getaway or just a nice place to have dinner... this is the hotel!

“Pleasantly Suprised”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

The choice to dine here was a snap decision and a good one. The saff was friendly and very efficient . The food was delicious and the portions were filling. I ordered a steak and it was cooked perfectly. The bread and side dishes were the same. I was very glad I had dined with this establishment. I don't think you can go wrong by dining here. Nice find at a solid value.
