First time there. Had a very good experience. Food was very well prepared. I especially liked the trio dessert that offered you to try 3 different desserts. Valet parking was a plus. Didn't realize it is the former Wood Fire Grill until I pulled up. Give it a try, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

We started with the Kefta, words cannot even describe the deliciousness! The meatballs had just he right amount of moisture and the flavors were very complex. My husband got the Tomahawk Veal and I had the Ahi Tuna, they were both done perfectly. I also got a side of the spinach souffle that was absolutely fabulous.
I had a glass of the South African Shiraz that was quite tasty as well. It was a very nice touch that the chef came to our table and spoke with us.
The service was a little slow at first, once we ordered the food was pretty quick. Our waiter was just a bit robotic.

Our server was very inattentive. Wine not poured, dishes constantly left on the table when the next course was served. I had to ask for water when we had three empty glasses on the table with only two people seated. The food was excellent as usual but the service was not up to the standard.

Maybe because it was Valentine's day, but our server was not at his best performance. We sat there for at least 40 minutes just waiting for the food to be served.

The food was ok, but the service I received was terrible. I had to ask other waiters for service I needed at my table. This was my first time going to the restaurant, It was the night before Valentines Day. I did ask for the manager, but all I got was unsympathetic response. I will never go there again.

I looked forward to our dinner at Cape Dutch. My husband had the mussels which are bigger and more flavorful than anywhere else he has eaten them. I had the lobster tail appetizer. It was delicious. This time my husband had the short ribs and I got the burger which is always terrific. Not sure if it was because we were in a back corner or because we had a different server but the food took longer than usual to come out. However, it was worth waiting for!

As a South African, I was excited to try Cape Dutch and experience South African food along with my American colleagues. Sadly I was embarrassed to say that was South African food. The biltong was dry and lacked taste and the Peri Peri Chicken was nothing like what I am used to back home.

We had a gift card from our daughter and knew it was probably going to be great because it was always hard to get e reservation. Some of the best, tasty food we’ve ever had. Served hot and beautifully. Service was attentive and pleasant and we definitely intend to go back.

We enjoyed everything! The valet, bartender, server, food, beverages, music...it was a great experience. The bar is not very large, but well appointed and the bartender was a joy. Engaging and attentive, but not intrusive. There are a couple of nice comfortable and intimate conversation areas at the front that are great for pre-dinner drinks as well. Not our first time here, and definately not our last.

Second visit and it will be our last. Our first visit was mediocre but wanted to give it a second try. The truffled burrata was amazing, but everything that followed was again mediocre. The wine glass broke in my friend's hand and wine spilled all over her pashmina. The only customer service was that soda water was offered for her clean it in the bathroom. No offer to have it dry cleaned or even replace her pashmina (which by the way is ruined). Our proteins were boring and the carmelized brussel sprouts were barely cooked. Left very disappointed.

I was really excited to try this place out following a friends recommendation. We had a nice large table in the back of the restaurant for our party of 6 with lots of room to spread out and it felt private, but sadly we also felt forgotten. It took nearly 10 minutes after being seated for the server to ask for a drink order, then again we waited for them to be delivered because the bartender was behind. Drinks were good, especially the aviation, although it was served differently at the table from the first one while we were seated at the bar. The oysters were definitely a hit off the apps menu. The burata was also quite good. No one at the table raved about their entrees and they were out of the sea bass, the fish they recommended instead was dry and just ok. Other than the pomme frites which were crispy and came with this delicious mustard sauce, the sides were bland and forgettable. Pros: nice atmosphere Cons: service delays and hefty price

Overall our group had a lovely dinner. I had a mistake and order the Branzino (with it being fileted) and it came with only the head removed. My friend had to litererally gut the entire fish and pull out the meat for me and we had to ask for more plates to cover up the "gutting" pieces of the fish. I had immediately requested to switch to the tenderloin option (it was NYE) with limited options...but our waiter was insisting. To be honest, the two other diners were not impressed with the Branzino either, but everything else we had was amazing. It was just a bad order and after trying to send it back to change to the filet it was quickly explained that would not be an option.

Saw a review on Atlanta Eats and immediately put it on my list of "Must Dine" and I was impressed with everything. Our server made my daughter and me feel welcomed and comfortable. Some menu items I saw on their website were not available the night we went but the other recommendations were delicious.
