The buzz, aroma's upon entering, and the exquisite treatment once we were seated were among the best I have experiences. My date and I were quite happy with the whole experience. Will be coming back soon.

Honestly, this was the best lobster I’ve ever had, and the fried lobster tails were a great starter. I can’t wait to go back and visit the bar!

Cape Dutch is one of our favorite places to go. You wouldn't think to order a burger there but we were told how amazing they are and now we always order at least one for the table to split. It is one of our fav places for special occasions and to take guests. Food is all outstanding. LOVE LOVE LOVE the mussels! The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is this time we had a server with no personality and he was not very attentive. He did pick up that were celebrating a birthday and at the end of the meal he brought a dessert with a candle in it. We thought that was a nice gesture but then HE PUT IT ON OUR CHECK!!! We will definitely continue to go to Cape Dutch but would not want him as a server. We have had Anthony in the past and he is awesome!!

While most restaurants are too noisy to allow pleasant conversation, Cape Dutch has enough energy to prevent hearing other tables while enabling conversation among your party. They add excellent service, interesting and beautifully presented cuisine and an attractive space. Our group was well satisfied with every aspect of the evening

What a great experience we all had at dinner. The service was excellent and very attentive. The food was awesome. We tried a few apps first and then moved on the the main courses. I had the porcini ravioli and it was extremely tasty. The server recommended a Pinotage wine that totally lived up to his expectations. Well done all around!!

We enjoyed our night here but it wasn’t remarkable. The food was fine the waiter was fine.....well, it was just fine. Because all of the restaurants want clean lines and an open concept, it is a typical modern venue that when it’s full it’s too loud. (I think it is very nicely decorated and beautiful farmhouse modern by the way) We were seated in the back and they have tables with bench seating paired with a chair. The bench is too high for the table and it’s a bit uncomfortable and I’m not tall. I would suggest to ask for alternative seating if they place you there.

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.

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.
