My wife and I popped in on Saturday afternoon to see if there was a table available for that night, and were glad that they could oblige. We were warmly received when we returned and, although the table was tucked underneath the bar, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal there. I had the fish served on braised white beans and Heather...

It had been some time since we last ate here, but a recent visit with friends confirmed that it is still excellent. The food, the service, the atmosphere - all combine to make this a great dining option. The deconstructed bouillabaisse was just out of this world.

Its been ages since we've had dinner here, it was always good and it still is. I was very pleased to see that you can book tables now (couldn't in the past) and it can all be done on-line. T ahd looked at its menu online and had already decided on having the parmesan crusted lambs liver with gorgonzola sauce... More

I recently visited Wellington, this restaurant was recommended by a friend and it didn't disappoint. The lambs liver is a must! I've never been a fan of liver, but this dish won me over 😊 there's a great wine list too, with some of NZ's best vino on offer. The service was second to none, you can see the manager... More

We walked on a Thursday evening and couldn't get a table, the Friday was also booked out - "A good sign" so we booked for Saturday. The restaurant is small, the kitchen tiny - how the chefs managed in such a small area was incredible. Our waiter was excellent in both service and knowledge. The menu very different and interesting... More

Like so many reviews Capitol has always delivered...until now. To charge $30 for an entree of asparagus with an egg and a sprinkle of whitebait is too much. Normal practise would be to inform diners that the entree you ordered was at such a price - more than main in some cases. Disappointing and for us as we always promoted... More

We went there on a Friday evening without reservation. Very tasty food and delicious desert. The service was outstanding and even giving some exquisite travel tips for our trip. The Gewürztraminer is a must try 😊. All in all a perfect experience.

Was recommended to me so we thought we would try it Very busy little place but worth the walk up Courtney Place Very very small kitchen so limited to how they cook eggs but my choice of food was tasty with good size portions and very very reasonably priced. Organic juice on offer was great too

Went to Capitol for dinner on a Saturday night and did not have reservations. We sat at the bar probably for about 45 minutes or so and had a drink and the green bruschetta which was absolutely lovely. Sat down at our table and ordered two mains - both of the vegetarian pastas. We had the rigatoni with mushrooms and... More
