A took an interviewee here for dinner Sep 2015. Great food, atmosphere and views! It is a little hidden, so make sure you have very good directions. I had a rabbit treo that was very good.

Great experience from start to finish! From the reservation by phone, to arrival and a cocktail at the bar to a tasty dinner with flawless service. Will always go back for a special occasion or just for a treat. It was nice not to be rushed, we did not realize that we were the last guests until we left.

My husband and I had brunch at Capital M on our last day in Beijing after visiting the Temple of Heaven. Every item we had was fantastic and the service was superb. The food was Western, but since we had been eating local food for the rest of the trip, this was a nice change. The location can't be beat.... More

What a wonderful place. Great location overlooking the square. Romantic and had fireplaces throughout the restaurant. A bit disappointed they allowed a couple wearing sweat pants on a celebratory night like New Year's Eve, I think when a dress code is stated even on the front door that it's ok to say no, But, that's fine. Wouldn't stop us from... More

Visited Capital M for a dinner with business associates. The restaurant serves modern western cuisine. We had a selection of starters and mains which were all excellent. The lamb in particular was fantastic. If you love M on The Bund in Shanghai you will find its sister in Beijing is just as good. Mains were priced in the 200-400 rmb... More

One of the most beautiful restaurants I have ever visited. in a very beautiful and peaceful environment. the building is reminiscent of the ancient agora in Athens I visited the previous day. Amazing and elegant architecture, not glaring! The room is large. Very welcoming and warm environment. The service is very quick and the staff polite and efficient. Quality dishes... More

Great (international) food, large choice, attentive service. What else do you need. However, does not come cheap. But recommendable.

An extremely well-rounded restaurant, with exquisite dishes, a mixture of western and chinese cuisines. Well-located, with a lot of entertainment programming (movies, music, readings, etc).

This was my second visit to Capital M in recent months and it by far surpassed the first (which was pretty good anyway!). As I mentioned in my earlier review, the level of service here is bar far the best I have experienced in China. Attentive but in no way intrusive. The decor throughout is beautiful and the view from... More
