I dined at Capers for the first time last week. I came in for lunch on a Friday afternoon and had planned to come another time for dinner but let me tell you why I won’t. Since the air conditioner doesn’t work that well, I asked to be seated inside. The hostess sat me by a window. I heard the food was great here. However, my service was not. The lunch shift was terribly slow, and I didn’t see a reason as to why I had to wait almost 30 minutes for a MEDIUM RARE entrée. I ordered bruchetta as an appetizer (which came out burnt) Strike 1. As my main meal, I decided to try the Hawaiian Ribeye that the waiter spoke of. While I was waiting for my entrée, I noticed that there were dead bugs collected in the windowsill by my table. I brushed it off because another window was also open so I figured that the flies and beetles naturally flew inside. BUT why are they dead? Did someone kill them and just leave them there? Strike 2. While I continued to wait, I saw one of the female waitresses waiting by the bar. She looked at the wall, gasped, and went to get my server. He came out the kitchen and KILLED A BUG WITH MY PLATE OF FOOD IN HIS HAND. He then had the nerve to look at me and chuckle and set my steak down in front of me. STRIKE 3. By the time I actually received my food, I had waited so long and I was thoroughly disgusted I asked for a box to “take it home”. I paid for my food, left a tip, and walked out. Upon my exit, the hostess (I guess the chef’s wife…?) was on her cell phone and reading a magazine. She said, “OK! Bye bye!” and continued her convo on her cell phone. What an unprofessional and unsanitary environment. I AM NEVER COMING BACK TO CAPERS. And the people who actually suggested it to me will be notified about how nasty it is there.
