“Alway Perfect...”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Dinner at The Perfect Caper never disappoints. The food is delicious, the staff (especially Jacqueline & Noelle) gracious and the ambience is the right mix of sophistication and comfort. Loved the piano in the background.

“Great menu, delicious cuisine and wonderful service”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

We were only in town for a few days and we were told that we must enjoy a dinner at The Perfect Caper. We are so glad we listened to that advice! The menu choices all sounded wonderful. We shared the special seafood appetizer, I had the duck a deux, and my husband had the mahi mahi. Everything was cooked perfectly and each was delicious. We ended by sharing a huge piece of chocolate cake, that was amazing. John our waiter was fantastic, professional yet personable. The pacing of the meal was perfect. Overall, a wonderful way to end our visit in Punta Gorda.

“Fabulous Place”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

This is a fantastic restaurant and a must if you visit Punta Gorda. We made a reservation for a party of seven, were greeted pleasantly and seated promptly. Our server was marvelous as was the service of other staff. The appetizers, meals, desserts were all wonderful. The restaurant decor and ambiance were a perfect match to a perfect meal. Given that we were a late seating, I think we closed the place but the staff remained gracious and attentive the entire evening. This is indeed a special restaurant with a special menu.

“Always Wonderful”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

We return here every year----no time spent in Florida is complete without at least one wonderful dinner at The Perfect Caper! You can't beat the food, service and ambience. This is what I consider a "special" restaurant but the menu is creative and always offers something a little out of the ordinary and an incentive to return. May they never take the Mozzarella and Heirloom Salad or the Warm Goat apps off the menu----my favorite meal all by themselves.
