    1. It is one of the best in town. Also one of the most expensive. They do a great steak and the Cesar is fantastic. It is small and romantic with a nice fireplace. If price is not a factor, you will not be disapointed.

      1. re: BSW6490

        Second the above: great room, food is excellent, but be prepared - it's very expensive...

      2. Have been there several times. Room is lovely, food is excellent. However, the prices now verge on either insulting or insane. No food is worth what Capo charges. It isn't that good to justify those insanely high prices. I know I won't return. Does the owner think that this is a three Michelin Star restaurant in order to justify those prices?

        1. The Emperor is naked.

          1. Despite what maudies5 says, the prices are in line for the ingredients. San Danielle proscuitto, Jamon Iberico de Bellota, piles of just-plucked-from-the-water crabmeat, USDA prime and above meat. The wine list reads like a who's who of the US and France, with some other superstars thrown in (Michel Rolland's Campo Eliseo project from Toro). 30yr old Grand Cru burgundy, anyone?
            Very NYC-feeling with regards to having THE BEST of everything, and you having to pay dearly for it. That said, for birthdays and expense account dinners, it's in my top 3 choices.
            A side note: for anyone who, like me, obsesses over great Alsatian white wines, check out the bar here. Grand cru Alsatian Rieslings and Gewurtzes at reasonable prices, and, -gasp- PROPERLY AGED!
