Attentive service. steak was delicious and lamb shanks tender and delicious. fine selection of wines. A bit pricey for us but the food and service was excellent and made up for it.

We have dined several times over the past few years at Capitol. The service, atmosphere, menu and wine choices are always top class. It is certainly our go to restaurant for casual dining. We'll be back next visit to our "Capitol" city!!
Thanks for your wonderful review. We're very grateful and pleased that you enjoyed your time at Capitol. Thanks again, Kate
Really love this stylish Italian bistro type restaurant. Its quite small but they manage to put on a mouthwatering array of local seasonal produce. My favourite is the squid but there's definitely something for everyone here. One of Wellys best easteries...
Thanks Anthony We're really pleased that you're liking it! Best, Kate
Recently we decided to go to Capitol as it had been highly recommended. My partner is ludicrously picky and so despite recommendation I thought the evening might end in disappointment. I was so wrong. The atmosphere is romantic. Almost too dim to take Instagram photos,...More
Thanks Polly, Your lovely review is gratefully received. Kate
Capitol is reliably good, and most of the time it is very good. It is also small, popular, crowded and fun. The bar is tiny and cramped, and really not a place to wait for a table. Most of the time they don’t take bookings...More
Hey there Thanks for your review, and your frustration is over, as we have been taking bookings for a few months now. Thanks again, Kate

Thanks for taking the time to review our restaurant. I'm sorry your wait was longer than usual, and I trust that you did enjoy your meals when you received them. Regards, Kate
I asked to sit at one of the many tables of four that were free but we were shown to a tiny table beside the entrance. Difficult to have a private conversation as we were very close to another table of three. Understand if the...More
I'm sorry you felt squashed in our restaurant. We are a tiny space and you'll understand that in order to remain viable, we need to use our tables for the number of guests they accommodate. I'm glad you enjoyed your food and service. Many thanks...More
This restaurant is like the old faithful geyser: a reliable performer. The food is great. Service is okay. Always a good night. Take note: you don't want to be seated by the toilet
Thanks for your kind words and for taking the time to post this review. All the best, Kate
I would highly recommend this restaurant if looking for somewhere in Wellington. We went for dinner and the interior was sophisticated with perfect music and candles on every table. The wait staff were perfect - timely, attentive, knew specials, but left us alone. The food...More
Thanks very much for taking the time to post this review. We're well pleased that you enjoyed your meal. Best, Kate
At the end of a busy day it was a relief to see Bluff oysters had arrived so we treated ourselves. This restaurant is shoe-horned into a compact space but doesn't seem crowded. The food and wine were very good and satisfying for meat eaters...More
Thanks so much to your lovely review. See you again soon. All the best, Kate
