some of the best food i have ever had! – Going to the Capital club on a reccomendation was a very good idea. Iwas there on adate and more or less i was just there to be with my friend and chill out, but after recieving our food our conversation dwindled to a a complete halt as we became totally engrossed in our meals. The break in the frenzy was our seaver recommending a wine to go with the food, needless to say with a nod the wine was there and the match was sublime. You have a new regular. Thank you!
Bottom line...... Excellent! – On the evening of Saturday 27 I was dining at the Capitol Cub with 4 of my friends, where I had usually enjoyed the bar I thought I would test the waters downstairs. From the service to the food everything was perfect. Being that there were five of us I got to see and try alot of the food and was wholly satisfied. In all honesty I was quite surprised at the quality of food coming out of a kitchen of an establishment that is known for it's cocktails and not it's cuisine. To top it off the server was elegant and knowledgeable as we asked her many questions about the wine and the food.
Bravo.... I will be back
Mighty fine opium den of a bar – I have never been taken care of as well as at the Capitol Club, and this in a city known for good service. Our cocktailer was funny and friendly when we wanted to talk to him, and invisible when we wanted to talk to each other (though he did keep our drinks coming). Bombay is Bombay no matter where you drink it, but the club mixes a good martini in a large glass. Can't say much about the food; all I've had is the pita/hummous/olive plate, which is fine, but it looks like there's a pretty fine menu which might warrent further perusal.
Agreed, – Great scene, location etc. Bartender are horrible, as is the service.
Out of chances – I really wanted to like this place. It's got a great location, and the atmosphere is cool. Let this serve as a testimonial that a cool space does not a great bar make. The problem is, far and away, the service. Each time I've been in, it's taken at least 20 minutes for a server to even notice our existence. Then when they do finally take our order, it takes so long that you wonder if they've forgotten about you or your server's gone on break or something. Lastly, I can forgive slow service if the person is at least pleasant, but the 'tude is over the top. I've tried to give the CC several chances, knowing that it IS possible to hit a place on a bad night, but I've been there four times and I haven't noticed any difference. I will not be going back to this bar.
From Favorite to Snob city – A favorite of my boyfriend and I. We stopped by for a few drinks recently. My boyfriend ordered a mixed drink that was admittedly a complicated one to make. It was one of the worst I've ever had. I asked the waiter for something else and he proceeded to school me on the drink and inform me that this is how the drink was made and someone who knew this drink would like it. I assured him it wasn't my inexperience sipping cocktails that made this drink pond water. He brought a new cosmo that had lipstick around the edges. I pointed this out and assured him that we were both boys and we were not infact wearing makup. He failed to see the humor and sloppily took the glass away without asking if we wanted a replacement. With so many places in Seattle, it's unfortunate that some get smug.
I've been to the Capitol Club a million times and I never tire of it. It's perfect for a night out with the girls or a drink with a date. The deck upstairs is ideal on a sunny evening and even better when the sun goes down. Don't forget to order something---the food can be terrific.
