Good food and good environment

Met my husband at the bar for his birthday. After I arrived, the bartender took a long time to stop by and see if I wanted anything (he wasn't behind the bar), and when I told him we were going to just get our table for dinner, he still didn't bring the check. After we asked for the check, he... read more

Much like all of the restaurants in the Platinum Dining Group, Capers and Lemons offers consistently good food, expertly served in a beautifully appointed space. Every time I've visited, I'm politely greeted by the host/hostess. Service is fast and efficient, but I've never gotten the impression they are trying to turn the table. The servers are clearly well-trained, and know... More

First, I have eaten both lunch & dinner here, and have been most satisfied. I will pay the price is food & service is good. My son's rehearsal was a disaster and this disaster cost me greatly. My husband and I visited, liked the room (was told it would handle 30 no problem), left a deposit and signed their contract.... More

I have been here many times and always have a great experience. The other day I went for lunch and ordered the shrimp scampi - It was the best I have had and after talking to a manager he told me the chef had set out to make this dish exceptional. I enjoyed great service and a glass of red... More

Always trying to experience new restaurants in town, but now that we have experienced Capers & Lemons, it's our "go to" restaurant. Even had our son's rehearsal dinner there. The food is always good, and the service has always been phenomenal as well. Highly recommend the salmon and the short ribs. Tiramisu is the best ever.

Capers and Lemons was recommended to us about a year ago. We finally had a night alone and decided to give it a shot. It was not in a convenient location for us, but the experience made it worth the trip. The restaurant was dimly lit, full of great smells, and had a nice bar with a large TV. The... More

We arrived at 3:00...several tables were occupied, and the staff was busy setting up for a busy holiday night. We were impressed by the friendliness of the staff. We were brought bread wit olive oil dipping sauce and our drinks. We started with caramelized onion flatbread. It was so delicious, followed by garden salad. The salad was made using fresh... More

We were taken there by a friend who lives in the area--not knowing what to expect. Had drinks at the Bar--great! There were 4 of us and everyone agreed that all our meals were wonderful!

Had no idea where we were or where we were going. Got there and everything was perfect from the drinks to the wine to the meal. The manager came to the table and we expressed to him our positive experience. Next time in Wilmington we will make a point of returning.
