Capo Ratings and Reviews
Favorite restaurant in Los Angeles - And I eat out 6 nights a week!
Excellent food! I highly recommend it! The service was impeccable. My dining companion was late in arriving and they were very understanding.
Absolutely delicious!!!! The service was impeccable and the food was sublime. Best Caesar salad and branzino I've had in a long time. Excellent sommelier as well.. looking forward to our return
What a great place. It was a business dinner and we were late but the host could not have been nicer about it, despite the issues it caused. And the food--a great grilled Cesar salad, yummy heirloom tomato and burrata, fettuccine with morels, something like corn ravioli with truffles, so good. only one star off for uncomfortable chair which dug into my behind (the ones without arms).
Dinner at Capo was a real treat. From starters to entrees it was delicious and the warm chocolate soufflé topped off the whole wonderful experience.
GREAT STAFF ....EXCELLENT FOOD ....KILLER WINE ......XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX00000000000000000000000000
Capo is a special treat to enjoy. It is always terrific and the people there are so friendly and appropriately attentive. I try to visit this place whenever I am in town.
Capo is pricy. Known for its' beef, those entrees are around $60-70, accompanied by some beans mixed with veggies. Yummy mashed potatoes are extra. But for me, it's worth it since I don't eat beef often. Mushroom soup is very tasty. Pasta is also renowned but I have celiac and haven't tried their gluten-free pasta. It's a small spot with good service. You might spot a movie star. Sister restaurant next door, Cora's is the best breakfast/lunch spot around with delectable huevos rancheros.
I haven't visited Capo in a couple years, and I'm so happy we went back! The restaurant was much more energetic than I remembered, with a fun playlist playing in the background, amazing service, and delicious food. I plan on going back much more often now!
Food was incredible. Had the chefs tasting menu. Absolutely superb.
Fantastic and attentive service all around. Really nice wine selections.
We have always enjoyed capo during our visits to Santa Monica and have had good food and service. However this occasion we arrived at 6:10 for a 6:30 reservation made 1 1/2 months prior there was not 1 customer in the establishment. Before seating us the maitre'd stated we would have to be done by 7:45, we were very taken back with his statement yet agreed since we live 300 miles away and wanted to enjoy a nice dinner while visiting again. By 6:40 our order had not been taken and now we felt pressured to hurry, if you have dined at Capo you are aware dinner for 3 and a bottle of wine will be well over $500.00 which is fine for good food and service. We ended up leaving without eating rather than feeling rushed to shove down the food and swig a $300.00 bottle of wine. We will not be returning during future visits to Santa Monica, after conversation with the maitre'd it was apparent it really did not matter to him. The turn n burn mentality is not what you would expect from a fine dining establishment and is very disappointing from a place we enjoyed very much in the past and have spoke highly of.
I took my husband to Capo for his birthday and it was a wonderful evening! We hadn't been to Capo before even though we live in Santa Monica. It is our favorite restaurant now! The food was delicious. We felt welcome because the waiters were so accommodating and seemed to really enjoy making the evening special. So unusual! I liked the 70's music too. Definitely order the ravioli filled with corn and the blackberry crumble.
Our meal was one of the finest I've ever experienced. The service was outstanding; all of our waiters recommendations were fantastic. The caesar salad is beyond anything I've ever tasted. We shared pasta for an appetizer along with the calamari (highly recommended). The sole, branzino, bone-in filet, and NY were amazing.
My husband and I had a romantic evening celebrating our 10yr anniversary.
This place was amazing! We did the chef's tasting menu ($120/head) and it was fantastic. Hidden Santa Monica gem.
The dining experience is nothing short of amazing. We come here every year for my birthday and it's always such a treat. Thank you Kyle and the rest of the crew for an incredible night
Outstanding. Everything we ate was perfect. Corn & truffle ravioli, grilled Ceasar, buratta and veggie salad, rigatoni, the bone in fillet was in the top three I've ever eaten.
Friendly and attentive service. Eclectic art on the walls.
It is expensive, but it was worth it.
They need to figure out the tables near the door. Too much draft and then when you're not in the way of the other tables it's not a great view (of the door). Not the best seat, the waiter for the other table kept hitting my chair. I ended up moving over and it was fine but was the view of the door.
The restaurant was a fun experience. It was crowded, busy, and way too loud. Food was really good. We did the tasting menu. Corkage fee was outrageous ($50).
This is an expensive but flawed restaurant which does not quite live up to the cost. Attractive room and good service. But the most important part - the food - was spotty. The chocolate soufflé was superb; the fois gras appetizer of appropriate size and well cooked. The main courses were, however, poor. The osso bucco was off the bone and chopped up as if it were hamburger. Strange and inappropriate herbal flavors were added. Not good. The dover sole was cooked properly if a bit dry but it was accompanied not by potatoes and a soft creamed vegetable but by dried out roasted vegetables. At these prices quite disappointing!
This was my favorite place! But last night was a bit off! I split the Spaghetti Carbonara and it wasn't what I had In The past! Big chunks of onions a soup sauce not you creamy egg dish with pancetta and peas🙄 They offered me something else and I order the Cesar salad! It came charred which was ok but overly smoked in taste! the sole was split too and was good but so thin that we should have never split it! Our friends ordered the Florentina steak which was huge and very tasty and flavorful!
The food was out-of-this-world good. And the service very attentive without being cloying. As first-time diners there we had a lot of questions about the menu, which they patiently answered. Every dish was perfection. It's very expensive but worth it for a special occasion. Go!
