    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 11/5/2008
    Capers is my neighborhood favorite. Whether you seek decadent martinis to celebrate the end of a grueling work week or dinner after a movie, you can find it at Capers. I have been here for a 5oth birthday buffet, girls night out, a date night with my husband, a celebration after little league and much more. It's always just what we're looking for. I take my out-of-town business associates here and it is the place they always ask to return to when in town. It is the combination of neighborhood sports bar, comfy bistro setting and reliable "comfort food" that is the key. The marvelous appetizers such as the calamarmi(with jalapenos!) and the tomato, mozarella, basil are meal worthy. But the steaks and pasta are great too.

    Good place to meet a friend on a weeknight if your primary focus is being in an environment to easily talk and not feel rushed. I thought the Chinese Chicken Salad was bland and could have used some almonds, mandarin oranges or something other than lettuce/cabbage with a bit of chicken.

    The service was great and personable. The food was wonderful especially enjoyed the calamari and ahi tuna. We enjoyed the martini recommendations from our waitress. It's a small restaurant but great for smaller groups of 5 or less. It's a good stop before a movie or you just want to wind down.

    We went on a Monday night so we were seated and served rather quickly. It was a flawless night, our server Daniel was super sweet and attentive. It looks like a great place to hang out for happy hour with the bar located in the middle of the restaraunt. Nice style, very lofty, food was great. Recommend steak bites apetizer however it will fill you up as it comes with vegetables. We will be back especially since we live so close and our first experience was so great.

    The service was spotty--after being served pasta and expecting to be offered parmesan, I waited for the waiter to come back--I finally had to get up and go find her. That was truly annoying. The coffee was old and I suspect not decaf, since I was awake for a good part of the night. Not a memorable experience--I won't go back to Capers.

    Not good service from our waiter during Happy Hour. I had made reservations for 6 people and he did not come by to take food order. I had been there since 4:00 and we had only gotten our drink orders. When we asked if we could order food off the Happy Hour menu he told us that Happy Hour time was over. It was a couple of minutes after 6:00 pm. Our group decided to go next door to Hawgs and order our food there. Very dissappointed with lack of attentiveness.

A good location for business Lunch, I will be going there again, but Capers need to try to be there. Food was good, I had seared ahi tuna - a good quality meal, with good portion to fill you, well cooked and well presented.

    We had a lovely meal, and Capers is fast becoming a favorite. It's convenient to the AMC Saratoga 14 theaters, so this will be a new destination for our dinner-and-a-movie nights. The baby back ribs in particular were the meatiest I've ever seen, literally falling off the bone so that picking them up was unthinkable, and the fries that accompanied them were superb. My mixed green salad could have used some more dressing, but the onion rings we shared more than made up for this slight disappointment. They come with ketchup and a second dipping sauce that was perfect for them. The restaurant initially reported us as a no-show, but faxing the receipt to OpenTable's superb customer service team quickly resolved that one glitch. Keep receipts!

    Dined on 5/19/2008
    I ordered a Cobb salad, which for me is a very specific salad with lettuce as a base, and then each other ingredient placed separately in wedges on top: avocado, bacon, blue cheese, tomato, chopped egg, chicken. However, it was all mixed together with no avocado. I asked for a vinaigrette dressing, which was very thick and hard to drizzle on. The taste was ok. I enjoyed being with my friend, and it was all very pleasant, but I would not be in a big hurry to return.

The best part of all is that it was not pretentious as some other moderate to expensive dining facilities that we've been. I will definitely visit again.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 5/11/2008
    When we arrived at Capers on time, we requested a half table/half booth since the place was empty and we were told "NO" because they said they were already booked. Funny enough that no one sat there the whole time we ate. We were seated near the bar which left us wide open for everyone to pass by as they entered the restaurant. We also noticed the bartender scoop out a cube of ice from a glass with his bare hands and then proceed to serve the drink, that was disgusting. I would not return to this restaurant. The prices are too high and the quality was poor.

    I was very pleasantly surprised by Capers. I had the marinated stir-fry with both chicken and shrimp, and my companion got the tomato and mozzarella sandwich. I thought the food was a definite cut above anything I've had recently in a similar price range. This isn't a convenient neighborhood for me to get to, but you can be sure we'll make it one of our regular destinations for excellent meals. It's worth a special trip.

    This place has great food. It has the feel of a small sports bar, with Ahi Tuna and juicy steaks on the menu. Great offerings menu choices. They also have about 5 large screen TV's so it is a great place to dine during a sports game. The restaurant is small, with the bar in the center, but still remains spacious. Friendly and prompt service. Definately going back!

  • First impression: Mixed Signals!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2004
    Dined on 5/4/2008
    First impression: Mixed Signals! We looked at the website, which said that brunch was served until 1:30pm. When we sat down, we were not given a brunch menu (our main reason for going). When we asked the hostess, she said brunch ends at 12:00, but that it would be ok to order. The server said "ends at 12:30 but would be ok to order per the kitchen". EIther the website needs to change, or people to communicate better. Service needs work. We only had one set of utensils (for a party of 2), and asked our server to bring us the set even before the food came. When the food came, we asked him again. Still he did not go get this.Aalmost ten minutes later I caught his attention and had to wave my own fork in the air at him. Food was cold by then

    The food was good. Our waitress was not. She forgot our drinks and we had to remind her about it. She was not attentive in any way. When taking our order she just looked at us then would daydream. She was very quiet and seemed drunk like. Even though she wasnt she seemed that way. I dont think I would return to this place unless someone else wanted to go. I would like to say the hostess was very pleasant.

    Way overpriced for what it is. I went with a group of 6 and the entrees we ordered ranged from $17-$23. No one ordered steak/seafood so not sure how the prices are for those. I'd say the food we ordered was worth the $12-15 range at most. Despite the food, the service was excellent. I may go back for the bar, but likely won't eat there again.
