A busy crowd, but good food.

I've been to Capers and Lemons on several occasions and have had mixed experiences. The food is generally very good, but the service has been hit or miss. I would certainly give them another chance as the food is quite good, and the atmosphere is very nice. although it can get crowded... read more

The food never disappoints! I love going there for lunch because there is always something new to try. We usually go there for a special occasion. Friendly servers and great atmosphere!

Have always enjoyed this place since it opened! Both the food and service are excellent. Nice selection of wines to compliment the menu. Rooms are open with both booths and tables, and surprisingly not as loud as one would first imagine. Not much to look at when setting outside, view of the parking lot, but the food is worth it.

I like this place because they offer unique Italian dishes you don't always find at a traditional Italian restaurant like Cannelloni and Braciole. Both and wonderfully delish! The wait staff are all super friendly and professional. Ask for Rick! Make sure to get dessert. The Panna Cotta is the probably the bets I've ever had! And stop into their market... More

Although I have visited here a few times in the past two years, I have been to Capers and Lemons twice this month. Each time it was busy but our wait was short--maybe because of our group size (4 on the first visit; two on the second) as well as our timing (getting there before 6:30 is advisable). I ordered...

The food is great! The antipasto is a great starter. All of the pasta is homemade and I crave the bread with dipping oil. Our hostess in the Market Morgan was very helpful and friendly. I miss the ricotta cheesecake.

I like to go up to visit Longwood Gardens several times a year. This Restaurant will be a new stop on my itinerary. Lovely atmosphere and great food!

Visited it for a celebration dinner with 5 family friends. Per my request on the phone for this special occasion a very good cosy corner booth was especially reserved for us on a very busy Saturday evening. The restaurant was packed full, and so it has been the last few times I visited it a couple of years ago. High... More

I just went with my husband this past Saturday night. They dont take reservations for parties of 2, so we waited. The time ( 20 mins) went by quickly, and waiting at the tasteful bar or poking around the gourmet market helped with that " duty" . The restaurant was packed and I can see why. Food was fresh: Free... More

I felt entrees were high end $ for the meal. Chicken was thick, not very tender. Mashed potatoes good. Add steam vegies to platter would be a plus. Our waiter was very business-like, no charm. I am partial to Macaroni Grill.
