We had salmon and gnocchi. Both were delicious. We also had the calamari. The Lemon alcoholic drink was delicious, could have drank several. :) The server was very nice as we sat there for several hours.

Took my girlfriend here for her birthday for the second year in a row. Always a great time with delicious food. Our server even put a candle in her dessert to make the evening more special. I highly recommend this delicious and relaxing establishment.

Food & service never disappoint. We had dinner at Capers & Lemons at least once a week Prior to the pandemic. Have been back twice since they reopened. Outside the noise level was quiet but when dining inside with a full dining room, the noise level can be very energetic

Restaurants are just opening up after being closed for months. As a diner I was concerned about safety precautions. I needn't have worried. Tables were spaced appropriately, servers were masked, the menu was able to be viewed on your phone or on paper and other diners were respectful. The food was delicious, the server attentive and the portions seemed bigger. But, that might have been my sheer joy at being out to eat!

Obviously C&L has raised their prices due to covid-19. Entrees were a couple dollars more. Wine and mixed drinks were obscenely high. $10.50 for a mixed drink, $9.00 for a glass of wine. $9.00 for a small piece of cheesecake.

Service by our waitress was very good. Asked the person that delivers the food for some crushed hot pepper, she never brought any. I let it slide and did not ask the waitress whom I'm sure would of went and got some.
