Very cool (chic) environment. Great Happy Hour food. Highly recommend the brochette and calamari. The cookie dessert is unfortunately to-die for.
SO SO Service – The view is great on a clear day, but the service stinks! They will leave you waiting for an hour and when they seat you they make you feel like they are doing you a big favor.
Excellent place for a summers evening date. – My girlfriend and I had dinner here one night and have been going back atleast twice a month since then. They have excellent quality in food, and great service as well. A must if youre ever in Portland : )
Best view in portland – I've been here twice and have always had great service and enjoyed the wonderful view. I made a reservation for my boyfriends b-day. We showed up early and they had the table set up and decorated. The only downfall are the prices, but thats expected.
Denny's in the sky – Service is just okay, but would be better if it matched the prices they were charging. It's a gamble to get a table during happy hour, since it's open seating and people squat for 20 minutes at the best tables, biding their time until cheap food comences. When it arrives, food is so-so. Mostly fried and portioned skimpily.
Great views of Portland – Good place to take visitors to Portland. Nice views.
Go for the view – Went for happy hour and the food was mediocre. When the bartender was asked to come up with a drink to show her creativity she came up with Knob Creek on the rocks. WOW! I asked for a martini and she had someone else make it. Oh, and she called my husband "pumpkin". They shouldn't hire just on looks.
Rehearsal Dinner – I am from out of town but had my wedding and reception in Portland. My mother-in law arranged for the rehearsal dinner at the Portland City Grill and it was amazing and fun. Unique foods, smooth service it was a great time.
This is the who's who 5 ocklock happy hour. Best looking people watching in town and the food is delicious and cheap.
beautiful views not consistant – I've visited this restaurant on numerous occasions. I can count on good quality on most days but have found that it is not always the case. I hope that they will keep a close eye on delivering hot food and not cold.
...Went shopping to Dunedin to cute little shops like Darling Memories,Amanda Austin and Rose Garden. Everyone in these shope were nice and welcoming. I wanted to end my shopping experience with a nice cup of Java.
Whe I walked to Cappucino's Bakery...I saw a couple of customers and once person working behind the counter so I decided to sit and but my bags down. When I sat on the counter...the lady working there didn't aknowledge me but I figure she was alone so I didn't take it personally. Since I really was craving my cup of Java I decided to patiently wait. After taking the order from customers she went to the back and dissapeared for 20 minutes.
At this point I really needed to go to the bathroom. When she came of to serve the people I asked if she can buzz me to the bathroom and she ignored me. I asked again and she SHOUTED at me and I saw a mean lady looking at me. She yelled"don't you see that I'm working alone here...if you need a public bathroom there's one around the corner". I metioned to her that I was a potential customer and I have been patient by waiting 20 minutes and she didn't have to yell at me and send me to a public bathroom. I've had my bags here and that she shouldn't abuse me for no reason.
After that...she yelled at me again and told me that I should leave her shop. SHe mentioned that she was the owne and I was shocked and couldn't believe that she was being so cruel to me for no apparent reason. She basically was taking out her job or personal frustrations on me. I was really shocked and like any women with some integrity I defended my case....and tol her that she was very cruel and bitter and that this is no way to treat a customer who has been patiently waiting. She then did the ultimate...she called the cops so they can escort me for no reason. Since it was so unfair...I figured I would wait and explain my side of the story to the cops...that I was basically waiting 20 minutes for a cup of Java and to use the bathroom and this lady was just cruel with me for no apparent cause...just being abusive towards me from her personal frustrations.
I decided to leaven and not let her ruin the wonderful experience I had with other merchant owners in the area. I saw her as being cruel, catty and bitter and left without take in it personally.
I have travelle all over the world and come from a family of restaurant owners and I ive that the owner of Cappuccino's Bakery a 0 out of 10 rating for cruelty, abuse, and and hateful energy. Have a spirit lady...it's Xmas. She is a lady Scroodge.
If you are visiting Dunedin...stay away if you are happy, attractive and fairly young because this witch will hate on you and give you ill treatment. She represents the haters of the world who hate the happy, sexy, beautiful and cheerful young women. STAY AWAY from the abuse. Oh by the way I saw she did the same to a customer on a Yahoo Travel Review....this MErchant will give Dunedin a bad name.
