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

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

My husband and I dinned here on a Friday evening and could find no complaints at all with Capital M. The staff were attentive, but not overly so and English was spoken by some. There is a solid wine list with something to suit everyone on there. The food was fantastic, I had a salmon dish and my husband a... More

Located near Tiananmen Square, I enjoyed high tea and dim sum varieties - no English spoken but the food was marvelous and the service astounding, great views also.

I went with family including a stroller for twins and the staff could not have been more welcoming. Very nice afternoon tea enjoyed in a leisurely manner. Aside from good food the staff helped make it a very relaxed visit.
