Still tops in my book

The Perfect Caper is my favorite restaurant locally. Business meetings are well suited to this venue although it can get noisy. The food is excellent but pricey.

Last Wed I went to the Perfect Caper with a group of 15 other members of our local Women’s Cancer Survivors group. We meet the first Wednesday of each month and then go to a local restaurant for lunch. We had our own room at the PC which was very nice. All but two of the women chose lunch from... More

This restaurant is tucked behind an unassuming building so it is difficult to form an impression from the outside. The inside decor is wonderful, all dark, cozy and comfortable elegance. The menu was varied and a bit adventuresome. The presentation was superb and the food was some of the best we have enjoyed anywhere. My wife and I live near... More

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...

My wife and I returned again to our favorite restaurant in southwest Florida and, of course, we enjoyed another fine dinner created by chef Jeannie and her team. I started with the chicken liver paté, accompanied by a chutney-style fig and vidalia onion relish, pear jam and French bread crisps. Absolutely mouthwatering. My wife raved about her jumbo prawns wrapped... More

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.
