Capriccio Grill Italian Steakhouse Restaurant Review

: The Peabody Memphis, an upscale boutique hotel known for its daily duck marches, is home to this white-tablecloth restaurant. Hardwood floors, restful neutral tones and warm lighting craft the stage for the fare. The signature dish is an eight-ounce filet mignon served with jumbo lump crab, hollandaise sauce and fresh asparagus. Pastas include mushroom ravioli with fresh tomato vodka sauce, and among pizzas is the Jack Daniel’s BBQ pie made with grilled chicken and bacon drenched in a bourbon barbecue sauce. For vegetarians there's a grilled-vegetable quinoa with peas, mushrooms and squash in a carrot broth. Dessert must be one of the Peabody’s signature chocolate milkshakes or the warm Godiva chocolate cake. The wine list is decent, with selections that lean more toward labels from California, although a few from Italy and Australia are present.

Worst service ever!!
by psaavedr on Mon Aug 11, 2008 7:43 am
 
We went there for brunch on Sunday, August 10, 2008 and the food was good, but the service was the worst service I have ever had in my life. First, she came to serve us and told us to talk to her while she cleaned spilled coffee from the table next to us. Then, she never brought us any utensils, sugar, water, you name it until we requested it several times, more often getting these items from other servers rather than from her. She did however insist on bringing us our bill within 10 minutes of being in the restaurant, when it was obvious we were not done eating yet. What is worse, after complaining about it to the manager, he did not do anything about it and the service got even worst!!

Don't waste your money, time or energy in this place if you are looking for a fine brunch experience. I would instead recommend either Owens Brennan's or Texas de Brazil. The food in these two places is superb and the service is outstanding.

My experience at the Peabody/Capriccio was truly disappointing. Again, do not waste your time or money there, as it is not worth it in the least.
