Don't dismiss this place because it does not have an exotic name. The food here is very good and reasonably priced. I had the pecan crusted catfish which was probably the best I have ever had. The gumbo was very good as well. The waiter was very attentive and you don't have wait long for your food after your order was placed.

We made reservations via Open Table. We arrive 30 minutes early, not a problem. Our servers name is, James, he was very slow to greet us, drinks took way too long, restaurant was freezing!!
Ordering with James was difficult and irritating as everything was an up charge if we changed it etc. Let's just say he was unaccomodating.
My hubby ordered the halibut and I ordered the rack of lamb. The halibut was heavily and the lamb was fantastic. James was just so crappy we switched waiters and asked for Zachery who had waited on us before. The experienced greatly improved after that.

Is it possible for a place to be really upscale (put on your best shoes and dark Clinton Kelly Jeans) and still be fun??? It is at Cappy's. GO to the bar even before you ask for a table.... cause the food comes out fast. Have a mango martini and just cruise around the bar .... ya gotta get the Cappy's atmosphere. Very upscale, Northside, Alamo Heights 78209. There are few places left like this. Is it snobbish? NO all are welcome. Just put your best shoes on :-)

I haven't met any locals who don't like Cappy's and its sister cafe, Cappycino's. It's stylish and very approachable, plus the out-of-towners don't know it (oops). Oysters were a bit sandy the night we went, so the server promptly took them off the bill. We all wound up eating the tuna - recommend the rare - after changing our minds away from duck salad, strip steak and texas redfish. All good and reasonably priced and a nice wine list to sip from.
