Well, sorry you feel that way, We do take the priority seating way, for this allows us prepare for the night rather than be caught upside down. This will most likely change going into next year. As you know are food is outstanding and only...More

Very bad experience last night at Capriccio. Seated outside. Terrible choice. Overflow crowd milling around with no place to wait to be seated were practically sitting at our table and watching us. Service was the worst I've experienced in a long time. Clearly insufficient servers...More
