My partner and I have had several meals at the Perfect Caper. The service is always great, the food is out of this world, the greeting when you walk in and leave is so professional, I just say enough about the restaurant….except that their Shrimp appetizer, wrapped in finely grated phyllo and deep fried and served over an avocado sauce is a must….

Three years ago this was a fantastic place. Since then, the owners (Beard winners) are away at a new venture and this place is really suffering. The menu is stale, the prices high, and they don't seem to care for customer suggestions. It is OFF our list.

We had a wonderful meal with our adult children. We had the FrenchConnection Martinis for cocktails. Then the famous calamari. Gabe brought us extra sauce. I had the special which was scallops roped with special lump crabmeat. The scallops were cooked perfectly for me. We enjoyed a 2003 reserve brunello di montalcino. My son had the filet mignonette and lobster Mac and cheese

They have a $25 prix fix --- a great value and good size servings. Add two glasses of house wine for only $10.

There are several great places to eat in Punta Gorda, but one that is totally consistent with the quality of food is the Perfect Caper. Seveal reviews mentioned finding it can be a challenge, it is totally worth it. Food quality is tough to beat. It competes with Ruth Chris, Morton's and other fine dining around the country. Service matches the quality of the food. Early bird specials are very good. If you are on the mailing list you receive their specials for the moment. Wine list is excellent.
