What I'm getting from most reviewers on this page is that they're probably people in a rush, who are on lunch breaks or heading out for dinner with the idea that they'd like to go to a vegetarian Milestones. Veggie Milestones it is not- the Naam, like most vegetarian restaurants in the city such as The Foundation or almost anything you'll find on Commerical Drive, is a casual, laid-back place. This kind of environment is ideal for slow service, understaffing, and occasional mix-ups with orders. However with that comes quality food, good value and a fun atmosphere.
The Naam is good for a dinner out with friends, where you can chill out, listen to some live music and not stress if the waiter is a little slow to take your order. The point is it's a *good time*. I've been going here for years and I would definitely recommend it, the food is creative and delicious, the portions are great and you never leave hungry!!

It was a Wednesday night and my boyfriend and I were in the mood to try something different. After a bit of wandering and some time online we decided it would be cool to try somewhere jazzy. Very quickly we found Capone's website, called and learned we did not need a reservation. Perfect.
We got there around nine to find it a bit busy, but not packed. The waitress brought us to a table right in front of the stage and we quickly took our seats to watch Terminal Station, the live band that was performing that night. Now I'd never seen a live jazz band before so I don't have anything to compare it to, but I know I was completely blown away by their performance. My boyfriend said the same- they took half a dozen requests in the time we were there (9-11pm), and knew every single song suggested, including one from an obscure Hungarian jazz band!
The food definitely surprised me- I've never had a pizza like that before! My only complaint was it was a little overly-oily, but it tasted like heaven. The service was efficient but she didn't stop by after the food arrived. Good martinis, good beer, incredible music, the ambiance was very cool (the dim blue lighting makes a huge difference), we can't wait to go back!
