Started with a lobster taco appetizer, the whole lobster claw meat was huge! I ordered scallops for my entree and they were outstanding.

Owner is probably one of the only properly trained chefs in the area! Food is fresh....especially the salmon. They also have great happy hours and burgers in town.

Excellent wine list, very nice appetizers. The main course was very nice with many gourmet choices. Scrumptious desserts.

The best restaurant experience I have ever had. Tiny cream puff tarts topped with a creamy dollop of butternut squash were served simply as a beginning treat; the goat cheese appetizer was heavenly. The steak literally melted in my mouth. The dessert selection is unique and delicious. Then they brought out another tiny chocolate peanut butter tidbit simply as an... More

Cute little spot, but tucked back on the side of the building so it's not visible from the road. The interior seemed a little dark to me and the decor more contemporary than my own taste would dictate, but there were nice, crisp linens on the tables and friendly, proficient employees. I ordered the duck salad for my lunch. I... More

My son and I went to The Perfect Caper for lunch. We ordered the appetizer with the warm goat cheese, etc. and it was excellent. We then ordered sandwiches which were also top notch. The service was excellent and we will definitely go back again for dinner. Punta Gorda needs more upscale restaurants and hopefully, sometime in the near future,... More

When you live in Sarasota, Florida and have good friends in Naples, Florida (110 miles apart) it's challenging to find an excellent restaurant half way. Problem solved! The Perfect Caper met our expectations. We were seated at a spacious booth in a fairly large, but comfortable dining room. The nice bar area is thoughtfully partitioned from the main dining room,...

Impeccable service, food prep & presentation. Everything was great, but difficult to get reservations on special occasions

We had my sister in law and neice visiting and decided to go to the Caper. We started with the Pomegranite Flip Martinis which are fantastic. For appetizers we had the Calamari (Best in the world) and the Pork Belly tacos which are delicious. For dinner we had a very nice 2004 Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino which had aged perfectly.... More

It was my mother in law's 70th birthday. She loves the Caper so we made a last minute reservation for 8 people. They graciously accommodated me. We arrived early and enjoyed very reasonably priced cocktails in their intimate Lounge. Our table was ready. Decor is lovely with interesting Art. We ordered off the fixed price menu which is available monday... More
