My wife and I, who are regular customers at this restaurant, last had dinner there on 3/28/15 @ 7PM with our visiting children. The food along with the service are usually excellent, but on this night I had ordered a crab cake which is described on the menu as a "pan seared jumbo lump crab cake..." Having spent the past...

Excellent food, service and ambiance all around. Order their superb appetizer plate, A Warm Goat, and you will fall in love with its taste and creativity. My sincerest compliments to the chef for creating it. Each of our four diners loved what they ordered and they are all foodies.

We have been regulars at The Perfect Caper for a number of years now and I can say that I have never had a bad meal. The food is superb and the service is excellent. The fixed price menus is value for money but the portions are a little smaller. My husband is addicted to the Calamari dish and orders... More

Perfect Caler is our go to restaurant whenever I need a break from cooking for my family. I am very picky as I like healthy,delicious food. The staff went the extra mile to make sure our meal was "perfect". Lobster Tacos, Crabby Scallops and my favorite, Duck. Awesome service and awesome food!

Located next to a juvenile detention office, the entry was unprepossessing. But the interior was nice enough. The real star, though, was the food. The menu was broad and interesting, with many creative combinations I had not seen before and lots of appealing choices. The soup of the day, butternut squash, was delicious, as was my baby kale salad. The... More
