We really enjoyed our visit to the Caper our callimari appetizer was spicy and good. Our entre was the rack of lamb. It was done perfectly and delicious. Our server, Zalmon was helpful, attentive and very polite.

Perfect Caper has always been our favorite restaurant. My wife and I agree that it's one of the best things about visiting the Gulf Coast of Florida. The house chop salad is always fresh and tasty. The lobster macaroni and cheese is in a class of it's own. Any and all of the entrees are delicious. Also, the bar is... More

We've been to this restaurant several times within the last year. Service and preparation has been inconsistent lately. The calamari, pate and lobster mac and cheese has never disappointed us. However, we were surprised by the amuse bouche (salmon tartar is the standard we've been served on every visit). It has been excellent in the past but during our last... More

I'm a local pastor ... when I say that the food, service, and atmosphere we're tops ... believe it. Too many competitors or disgruntled employees have tried to lower the true rating this restaurant deserves. You will pay a higher price than most in Punta Gorda ... however, it is money well spent! I know you won't regret it! And,... More

Upon a friend's recommendation, we went to the Caper for dinner. The owner knew the friends who had sent us and chatted with us when we came in. The service was non-existent. I had crab cakes, which were mediocre at best, especially for the price. My husband ordered a chicken dish that was burned. He took one bite, then set... More

Can't say enough about our total restaurant experience from the hostess's greeting to the dessert and everything in between. The service was impeccable, yet not intrusive. The atmosphere comfortable and conversation friendly even though the dining room was bustling. Finally the food, ooh the food....fantastic. Unique yet not outlandish selections and great variety of meat, fish and some vegetarian entrees.... More

We have been to The Perfect Caper several times this Winter/Spring season. We wanted to impress our friends from Naples (FL) with the wonderful restaurant choices we have in Punta Gorda.
