In the back of 121 E Marion a restaurant is hidden and not visible from the street. Search for it! Love the butternut soup with roasted pears. Duck salad came perfectly rare as ordered. The beef curry with Udon noodles also was wonderful, though there are so many great things on their menu, I would order another dish. Crabby scallops... More

We booked online at 7 pm for 8 pm on a Friday night. We arrived early at 730, the restaurant was busy and we were taken to the bar, where we enjoyed a glass of wine, before going to our table prior to 8 pm. Food, service, professionalism was outstanding. We have eaten at Opus, and the Sheraton dockside so... More

As a native New Yorker,I have been to the CIA many times. The owners of the Perfect Caper have opened a gourmet restaurant on par with the CIA. The food was superb as well as the staff.Although slightly more expensive than the competition it outshines their cuisine.

Had an early dinner here on New Year's Eve. We were late making reservations and early (5:30) was the only time we could get. Service was wonderful, food was delicious and ambience was great. What more could one ask for? This is our favorite restaurant in Punta Gorda, not only for special occasions. The waiters and waitresses are knowledgeable and... More

Tucked away in downtown Punta Gorda, what a great delight. Many locals are not even aware of this restaurant. This was our 3rd visit and each has been truly perfect. Our server, Jim, was excellent, seemed to appear at the perfect time. Three of us enjoyed wonderful service. The house wine was very good, my husband voted his Manhattan one... More

Barb and I experienced a fabulous Filet Mignon and Duck "their way." It was crispy and with asparagus and delicious potatoes, the meal was superior!

We've been here several times but this past weekend we dined here again and the fish special was probably one of the best meals I've ever eaten. It was a white fish with a lemon wine sauce served with lobster mashed potatoes (with a lobster claw on top) and wilted spinach. On top of the fish the chef added flash... More

We had a wonderful family meal experience here last night. The atmosphere is very upscale and lively. The service is exceptional with Gabe and Noelle tending to our every need. Of course we started out with a cocktail. The Pomegranitr Flip Martini is always a big hit with my wife. My daughter had a watermelon martini which she enjoyed. For... More

We've had mixed experiences here in the past. But since this is one of the most upscale restaurants in town, we decided to give it a go again. We skipped the main dining room and went to the lounge for a more casual dining experience. It was a wonderful evening! Rich does an excellent job of caring for his clientele... More
