Capitol Garage Ratings and Reviews

Capitol Garage has a very eclectic and changing menu. They have lots of options for
vegetarian and vegan as well as mainstream and very interesting combinations. The
biggest downside is the noise level as well as the proximity of the tables in this very

I like the Capitol Garage. The location is great and it's very handy for theatre or other events downtown. The food is plentiful and pretty good - nothing exceptionally fancy. The negative is that it is so loud. I mean really loud. You can't talk at a normal level unless you get a table outside. I think they need to hang something on the wall or ceiling to temper some of the noise.

I've been here several times, and even though it was especially busy when I went with my friend (Women's March was held on the same day), the service was great and the food was amazing as always! I had the bbq tofu wrap and potatoes - the food was absolutely delicious! I'll definitely be back again. Thanks! - Jesse

Food was good. Service was great. The sweet and spicy fries were tasty. House red wine was actually pretty good.We sat at the high table by the dessert counter. Glad we did as the other small tables seemed really close together. If we come again I'll get a burger.

I appreciate the number of vegetarian options! I had the tikki masala, which was very tasty. The salad we also ordered was a bit bland. But, there are a number of things on the menu that sound delicious, so we will definitely try it again!

Came here for date night. The restaurant had a great atmosphere and a friendly staff. We ordered the tacos for our appetizer and they were very good. It came with three tacos but two would have been nicer because it is kind of difficult to divide a taco in two. For our meals, we ordered the sirloin steak and the cheeseburger. The presentation was pleasing and the flavor was great. For our drinks, we ordered a mojito and a cosmopolitan. Both were made very well and tasted great. We will definitely be coming here again.

We went to Capitol Garage for our work team's holiday brunch. I choose this place because we have several vegans on our team and they offered some vegan choices on their menu. Everyone thought the food was good. I had the vegan Tikka masala hash and thought it was very flavorful but it was served just barely warm temp wise. A couple of people ordered the Monte Cristo and they were the last to be served...it was about 20 minutes after the rest of us got our food. Most of us were half way finished with our meal when theirs was served! I would go there again because of the vegan choices, and I thought that the food was very tasty.

I was very disappointed in Capitol Garage. The service was slow. Took them 45 minutes to take our order. People in our party were ignored, even when the waitress was looking right at them. The food was under seasoned and under cooked. Combinations of flavors didn't work. The drinks were watered down.

We visited Capitol Garage for a small office gathering of seven people. The service was friendly and the food outstanding. Several people commented as to how they never had been there before, but really enjoyed it. The Thai Pork Chop was one of the favorites. I had the falafel bites and a very generous portion was served! I would definitely visit again and heard several others say the same. Thanks for a wonderful dining experience!

The food here is consistently good with seasonal healthy options as well as vegetarian and gluten free. The staff is very friendly and helpful, even during rush they check up often. I come here for brunch regularly and always leave happy!

Had high hopes for vegan food given the restaurant's participation in the Vegan Chef Challenge. The broccoli "cheese" soup was excellent. Everything else was okay.
Since some of the old menu items with tofu were removed from the menu, the vegan choices typically available are mediocre. You still get a lot for your money here though. Better vegan options were available at The Porch (both restaurants have same owners)

Traditional dishes done with a flair for fun ingredients and taste. Service excellent. But, be prepared for close quarters and noise from all the conversations. If just two people go and
sit at the bar. Several TV screens with sports on. GREAT Coffee.

The apple biscuits were ok, but not that great. They're more of a side more than anything. I wouldn't order them again. The cocktail was great. The sandwich and the potatoes were delicious.
Service was fair because although the server's met our needs, their attitude was less than inviting and they were very detached. They really need to work on their people skills! For example, our server did check on us to made sure we had what we needed and yet I got a cold vibe from her. I don't know her name but she had big frizzy hair in a sloppy bun hair-do. Also, a male server came up to my table, randomly dropped a plate of pudding bread, and quickly mumbled what it was and left with a rush, without letting us know it was a sample or anything. Just a, "here is a pudding cake with raspberry sauce." It was weird.
So, although I liked the ambiance of the restaurant the chilly vibes I received here make me doubt coming back. I wish that weren't so.

Met up with a friend here when I was in town. Wide variety of menu items that didn't disappoint. Service was friendly and the server took the time to walk my friend through some of the Vegan options. If I am back in the area I would definitely eat here again.

I've been here a few times, and it's a wonderful place - the food was delicious, and as I'm vegan, it can be challenging to find a place that has vegan options, but they have enough vegan options to keep from getting repetitive.

Capital Garage turned out to be a great location for a Sunday brunch. Outdoor dining is on two sides of the building where the sun is not beating down on you. The food was good and service was attentive. Also, Capitol Garage was very dog friendly. That feature was not in the expanded list of desirable features, although "Paleo friendly" might have been a misspelled attempt to list "Pet Friendly".

Was there with 4 other people on a Sunday around 11:30am. Even though the place was busy we waited over 35 min. for our food, which seemed like an eternity. Servers were apologetic & brought us something from the pastry case to share/nibble on. Friendly staff. Good food. We come here for the vegan options. Our guests were glad to have mimosas & bloody Mary's. Colorful menu, fun place

Capital Garage used to be one of my favorite restaurants but sadly it has gone significantly downhill. The food was bad and overpriced. The kitchen said food was gluten free that wasn't and ended up causing issues for my friend. I'm sad we decided to come here. I definitely will not be returning.
Even though we had a reservation, we had ...
Even though we had a reservation, we had to wait 15 minutes to be seated. They were not busy. It seemed like they weren't sure what they were doing. The bartender refused service to a member of a party and told him to sit back down at our table and wait for the server to take his drink order. We were served a cup of lemons after having been seated for approx. 10 minutes. Another 10 minutes went by and we finally got water. The food did not come out as ordered and it was nothing special. We split our bill between a few debit cards and we had written down how much should go on each card to make it easier on the server. They accidentally charged us each our portion plus the entire bill on one persons card (we were double charged). They couldn't seem to figure out how to void the charge. The service was slow and they seemed to not know what they were doing and the food wasn't all that great. I wouldn't return.

Vegan menu improving. While the new menu has a few decent vegan options and is better than the most recent menu, the choices are still quite limited compared to when there were several tofu options available in the past. Current vegan options are mostly limited to dishes with black beans. The current emphasis on burgers and removal of fish and rib entrees was a disappointment to the omnivores in our party.
Has gone from our most frequented restaurant to somewhere we only go on occasion now.

I have heard the food here is good, but I can't speak from experience as we were unable to eat here despite making reservations. I gave everything middle ratings because ratings are required, but will update if I am ever able to actually dine at this restaurant. We made brunch reservations for noon on a Saturday. On the way to the restaurant we got stuck traffic and tried to call the restaurant to let them know we would be a few min late. The phone just rang and rang. Eventually an automatic greeting told us that the mailbox was full - please hang up. We confirmed that we had the correct phone number, and tried calling again 5 min later, and then again 10 min later, but with the same result. We decided to eat elsewhere since it seemed that either the restaurant was unexpectedly closed that day or the staff was completely overwhelmed (and thus would be unlikely to provide reasonably quick service). I would proceed with caution, and have a back up plan if you make reservations at Capitol Garage.
