Always a favorite
The Perfect Caper can always be counted on to please. It's consistency is one of its greatest assets. We return at least once a month.The 2 for 1 lunch is the best deal in town.

The best in town.
This is our favorite restaurant for fine dining. They do everything just right. The entire staff is very engaged in what they do, which makes for excellent service. That's a very important item from my perspective. We love The Caper.

The Perfect Caper was just
The Perfect Caper was just that Perfect. We were impressed from the minute we walked in to the very end when we walked out. The calamari was cooked to perfection. I had the fried chicken with cheddar grits and they were out of this world. My husband had the duck and his only comment was that he should have ordered two. The service was great. This was the type of place I had been looking for since we moved to SWF. My search is now over. Great Place.

Great place for a romantic evening
The hostess greeted us and we were seated in the bar at our request . We sat at a bar table and the bartender Richard served us.
All the wait staff and hostess helped out and worked together to make our experience great. Tuna tacos apps were wonderful. The lamb was fantastic my wife had the cobia. It was a little stronger of a fish than she normally likes but good. Richard said it had a slightly stronger flavor than the grouper and he was right. The coconut cream pie finished off the nite and it was great .
We will be back.

Best experience for dinner
My daughter and I really enjoyed our dinner on June 19, 2013. Rich was our waiter. He was very professionial yet friendly. He took very good care of us and I highly recommend him. The food and service were impeccable. We will definitely be back again!

This is one of our favorite restaurants in the area. We have dined with them on several occasions and they have never dissapointed. They have a varied menu and always a special or two. I couldn't decide between the Morel dusted Sea Scollops or Ahai Tuna..chose the Tuna which was cooked perfectly. My wife chose Duck (she always chooses Duck!) and raved about it. The service was well timed and we were not rushed.

It was our wedding anniversary and we being new to Punta Gorda had never been to the Perfect Caper. It was a very nice evening and a great restaurant! The food, service and ambiance was very good. We will be regulars!

Everything about "The Caper" is perfect. Ambiance, service, and food are always classy.
I enjoyed lobster tacos and then a black grouper with terrine of potatoes with lobster chunk.
Great place for romantic dinner or with another couple or a large group. Service and food always thrill !

Perfectionists at the Perfect Caper
If you're looking for a getaway destination to experience the best dishes in Southwest Florida, the Perfect Caper is the place for you. The quiet and inviting atmosphere coupled with the expertise of the staff make this local gem the perfect place to meet with friends or family. If you haven't tried their succulent sweet and spicy calamari or their signature dishes like the Duck a Deux Facons (crispy confit of duck & garlic marinated duck breast), you haven't tasted paradise.

Always top-notch. .
We dined at Perfect Caper Friday, July 26th.
We started with an ox tail ravioli. The ox tail was fall apart tender and seasoned perfectly. If had a drizzle of truffle oil, which, I usually avoid, but it just added a layer of flavor and did not over power the rest of the dish.
Our entrees included; Moracan lamb, Mommas Chicken, lobster Mac and cheese and Salmon with Soba noodles.
Every one enjoyed their meals. I had the salmon with mushrooms and bok choy in a light soy based sauce.
I highly recommend for any special evening. Try the lounge menu for a more casual evening. We LOVE the pork belly tacos.

The Name Says It All
As the name implies the Perfect Caper is just that, PERFECT! Whether out for a romantic evening or out with a group of friends the Perfect Caper never disappoints. The service and the food are outstanding. You are greeted quickly and with reservations your table is always waiting for you. The excellently trained staff never rush you and without hovering seem to anticipate the correct time to deliver a drink, meal or dessert. This is the PERFECT place to enjoy a wonderful meal and have a quiet conversation with a good friend or a loved one. Delicious food, quiet atmosphere, and superb service equal the PERFECT combination for a wonderful dining experience.

What a treat the evening before going north, my daughter, her husband and my two beautiful grand daughters, they enjoyed and loved the atmosphere and great food.

Wonderful food and service. Perfect Caper comes close to being perfect.

Great food, amazing service
Recommend the caper 100%. We had Gabrial for our server and he was awesome! Suggested a great wine to go with our meal and had the chef make me a special dish to fit my dietary needs. Can't recommend this place enough!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Both food and service were excellent. Great place for that special occasion, or entertaining. Not cheap, but worth it.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great spot but............
We had our first dining experience at The Perfect Caper Friday night. The service and food were great although we all thought it was very pricey. With tip our two meals were $140.00. We probably won't be back unless it is a special occasion.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect meal at The Perfect Caper
The best dining experience we've had in the Punta Gorda/Port Charlotte area. TPC isn't inexpensive, but the pricing is in line with the quality of the food and level of service. My husband ordered the lamb, which at $44 was the most expensive entree on the menu. However, this was some of the best lamb we have ever tasted! I had the duck which came with both a roasted breast and a confit leg. Again, an excellent meal. Highly recommend TPC if you have a special occasion to celebrate or are simply looking to enjoy a nice night out.

Great Neighborhood 5Star Restaurant
We here in Punta Gorda, FL are truly blessed to have this incredible eatery here in our town. There is ALWAYS something new and exciting on the menu! Chef Jeanie insists on utilizing local fare and the freshest ingredients. Her insistence on quality ingredients shows in each course of each meal. The open kitchen concept, alos, makes your visit special each time. The wait staff and ambiance (whether in the bar dining area or dining room) is geared toward "customer satisfaction and enjoyment" of the highest level. Great Job and Great Food ALWAYS...
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM

One of my favorite restaurants in the area. Never a bad meal. The food is absolutely fantastic and fresh. Portions were great.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is the second or third time we've done our wedding anniversary at The Perfect Caper. Great food, great wine, great service. They don't rush you, you can just chill and enjoy your evening. When we are not celebrating anniversaries we like to sit at the bar and have wine and appetizers. Love the pate spread, the goat cheese spread, calamari, and many more.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time eating at the "perfect caper" and I have to say I do not know why we hadn't tried it before! It was first class dining at it's best. Everyone was friendly, professional and caring. The food was delicious and displayed nicely. The atmosphere was nice as well. We will definitely go back..,,,
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
I'll be back
Excellent freshly prepared lunch. Can't wait to go back for a dinner!

The Perfect Caper in Punta Gorda
So happy to find this food destination. Strange location, located in the back of a building with a nondescript side entrance. Food, menu, service were all wonderful.
Ingredients used are all top notch.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a great place to celebrate a special occasion. The service was excellent and the food was superb.

All three courses were amazing... So good we decided to go back a 2nd time before we leave Florida. Can't wait to try something different tonight!
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
We enjoyed the food, wine and excellent service (John) very much. There may be a bit too much waiter activity/unrest around the tables.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
The Perfect Caper came highly recommended to us since we were fairly new to the area and were looking for a place that was nicer than the average restaurant. We found it! TPC is excellent in every way, from the inventive ways the food is prepared to the ambiance to the wait staff. Our waitress was training a newbie who, based on what we observed that night, will be an equally effective and great waiter.
We WILL be back.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were looking for a place where we could dress up a little and not feel uncomfortable. It fit the bill. The food was unusual and very interesting. The butternut apple soup was delicious as was the salad with prosciutto wrapped mozzarella over beefsteak tomatoes. I had the duck which was prepare two ways -fantastic!!!! My husband had shrimp and risotto,which he loved. The scallop dish looked wonderful also. We would definitely recommend this restaurant especially for a special occasion, as it is a bit pricey.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
What a nice surpride
Wake up punts gorda. You have a first class restaurant which can compete with any restaurant in the state. Great gormet food, nice wine list, good service. Your on the map.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
though the food was outstanding
though the food was outstanding the tab was very pricey. Even with a gift certificate the bill for lunch for 4 was over $120. Probably not a place for frequent visits but for special occasions.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Let Me Say...Outstanding
My fiance' and I dined at 1:00 p.m. I wanted to treat him to something special
for his birthday, as he had never been there before. Our waiter, Jim, was exceptional
in every way. He made our dining experience relaxing & memorable. The food
was nothing less than perfect. The menu always contains unique dishes, so if you
want something out of the ordinay, special & elegant... visit The Perfect Caper.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and service! Been visiting the South west Florida area for years and wish we had found this place sooner. Best in Punta Gorda IMHO.

BACK IN A FLASH
EXCEPT for placement of our booth[ too close to kitchen and entrance] we all had an outstanding evening. Food and service was wonderful. We will go back soon.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
special occasion dinner
We went to the Perfect Caper for my birthday. We had been there before so I wanted to go back. I was not disappointed. The menu has something for everyone. The sides are more creative than most restaurants and nicely enhance the entrees. Service is attentive without being fussy.

A great birthday dinner
My husband and I went to the Caper for my birthday this week. As usual, the food and service was perfect. There is no place in our area that combines wonderful food and impeccable service other than the Perfect Caper. We always have an outstanding experience here.
12/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was a special occasion and we were lucky enough to get a reservation on short notice. The food and service were superb and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening. We plan to return for dinner before another special occasion.
