Never going back – Our family has been going there for 15 years, but never again. After waiting for service (party of 6) and asking the hostess to talk to a manager (twice, and she needed my name?), we walked out. It used to be a fun place to eat.
Spend Your Money Elsewhere – My husband and I have been coming to LaCapilla for the past ten years. The food was very good (although everything on the menu is fried in straight lard, so if eating healthy is on your agenda, this isn't the place for you.)
Management, however is poor and we have stopped going as well. Not only because they unjustly fired a loyal dedicated employee to benefit themselves and LIED about it, but we also got tired of the public berating of employees by management time after time again right in front of customers, and the rude attitude that they toward their regular customers that have been coming for years. It has become very uncomfortable and yes, the service and quality of the food has also gone down. There are many other good Mexican resturants in the area that are better and that would appreciate their employees and your business as well.
Hard Worker Screwed Over – The Main Bartender helped put this restaurant on the map because of his professional and personal service. Because of him, my family felt like this was our second home. He always made us feel welcome. Unfortunately the manager, who had the family business handed to him, obviously became intimidated and created false accusations to fire him. We will miss him dearly. Our money will be better spent elsewhere.
Management Gone Mad – The place used to be alot of fun, great drinks, great food, nice wait staff & bartender. The latest manager (now almost three years) started screwing it up from the moment he got there. Prices went up, Quality went down. Just recently he fired the bartender that had been there almost 9 years for something he did not do. Now the food is so so & the drinks aren't any better than the lemonade you can get off a corner lemonade stand. I know a few of the wait staff & they say he is terrible also.
After 15 years will never go back – My family and friends have gone to La Capilla for over 15 years and after this last week we will not go back. We will find a new place to call a restaurant our 2nd home. Prices have been increasing and the food is not that great. But the services we got from the main bartender was excellent. He always took great care of you so you would pay more for the food and drinks because you knew he was there. But they fired him last week after many years of services and brought in a new guy who is just serving lemonade and trying to pass them off as Margaritas and the service is not the same.
Good Restaurant gone real bad.
Don't be over critical. – So in defense of the last comment we were quoted different prices for happy hour then were actually being offered on the phone but did find out that if you went early and sat at the bar-you more than recieved appropriate service. I have been a patron and will continue to be even though the new owner's son is the worst bar manager i've ever put my eyes on. Value, value, value. Their happy hour is a GREAT deal!
Food and drinks are good but the attitude of the new owners/managers is terrible. They seem to be making up the rules as they go along, making the customer feel as if they have done something wrong. – They post "Happy Hour" in their ad as ending at 6:00 pm. The waiter/waitress inform you too late that it "really" ends at 5:45. They no longer honor their 2 for 1 coupons if you sit in the bar and order happy hour drinks. They really need to post a list of rule changes on the front door.
We have been loyal to this restaurant since it opened but after being informed of yet another rule change last night, we are done with La Capilla. It has become the "Unhappy Hour" place to not go.
THE best chiles rellenos anywhere. – I have been going to this restaurant for about two decades. The food is abundant and deliscious. The service can be a bit slow so come to relax. They have the best chiles rellenos and shrimp wrapped in bacon. FRESH food all day. Great happy hour at which time you can get very tasty finger foods cheap. Love it, especially the outdoor centered piaza with the finches.
Best Mexican Resturant EVER!!! – All I Have to SAY is WOW... Ive never eating at a better place than la Capilla.. Try the margritas and Fajitas..
Avoid at all costs! Save your money! – This place used to be a family favorite, but no more!
This mexican restaurant gets an F for very bad customer service, Rude owners, management!
They have changed management in the last few months, waiters are super slow, the restaurant is super dirty, and service and food was HORRIBLE! The chips were stale and drinks were not good either. The food was not what was described in the menu. There was hair in my salad.
I am sorry, but if you own a business, you need to have a good business ethic...this place does not know what that is!
Save your money and go somewhere else. I know of take out places better than this place...eek!
