This is a definite favorite of ours. Ambiance is perfect. The food is delicious and the Lemon drink is fantastic. My husband and I both tried the lasagna last night and it was amazing. The eggplant lasagna appetizer is delicious as well. They have inside and outside seating. The patio has heat lamps so it’s warm on a cool night. Great place!

We have been there many times. Overall it was good. Was disappointed us is that my friend ordered the broccoli rabe with beans dish. When it came out, it was only broccoli rabe. We told the waiter and he said 'sorry'. When we asked to have it rectified on the bill, he said "no he couldnt do that. all we would get is an apology". Say what??

We made a reservation for 4 and were promptly seated. The staff all wear face masks and seats are spaced appropriately. Smaller booths along the outside wall now have dividers. We feel very comfortable at Capers & Lemons because of their positive response to CDC requirements for the safety of their customers and employees. Because of their efforts, we thoroughly relaxed and enjoyed our evening with family members we had not seen for many weeks. We intend to continue supporting their business every chance we can. We totally empathize with their challenges. We frequent Capers & Lemons because of the comfortable environment, the friendliness and professionalism of the employees, the great food and their concern for safety. Thank you for all you do!

We had a lovely experience Capers very light. Also had the meatballs to begin and they were good. For entrees, the waitress and kitchen had the eggplant lasagna(which is an appetizer) made into an entree. We also had the daily special and a salad. Food was very good; not too heavy and nothing was covered in sauce and cheese. Waitress also suggested a cookie in a skillet for dessert and we enjoyed that. Good was definitely worth a return visit.
Ambiance isn’t my style; it’s dark and a lot of wood. It is also a little loud. But it was well decorated and clean.
Lastly, this visit was the first time my group had gotten together after a traumatic event so we were doing a good bit of talking. I’m not sure if the waitress/manager saw the emotions at the table but they let a 6:45 reservation close down the restaurant and never made us feel rushed. Not. Once. The waitress , Gabrielle, took our bill and then let us sit. This was so appreciated. Thank you.

I liked the 1st few times we were there, but not this time. My dinner was so oily and salty that I couldn't eat it. Told the waiter. Nothing was done to accommodate and we were charged for the entire order. Won't be back.

Uninspired service with basic misakes. Food was so-so, we were treated like strangers, even our child could tell. The antipasto was a few slices of ham and pile of cheese with some bland roasted peppers?!? Won't return.

We had a good experience. I did not think the bolognase dish was as good as on previous occasions. My chicken picatta was just ok, not outstanding. The chicken was dry and not very tender. Portions seemed less than previous. The best part of the evening was being out, our server was excellent and the cheesecake was delicious.
