This is a great place for lunch or dinner. The food is always good and the service is great. I would suggest making a reservation especially or lunch as it is almost always busy.

Arugula salad was delicious and the short rib was to die for. Love this eatery. Our waiter was very quick to accommodate.

It is nice to be back at Capers & Lemons. I am surprised that they have a no mask policy-- even for unvaccinated people.
It took a little while for us to get our food. I sometimes think their kitchen can't keep up with a full dining room.
Once we got it though, it was great. So glad the corn agnolotti is back for the summer.

The food was very good. Pappardelle and Chicken Piccata were both fantastic. Ask for Hannah as a server. Friendly and fun. Great atmosphere.

This was our first visit but not our last, basically we were staying overnight nearby. The food was delicious from the grilled artichokes to the chicken piccata and agnolotti.

We had a young server who seemed a little in experienced. We were sharing a bunch of apps and we asked her for some plates and she came back with tiny bread plates. Also, it took a very long time for our drinks to come....If you don't have the help needed, don't take so many reservations....just a suggestion....

Absolutely fantastic food as always. I do miss the chocolate lava cake from the menu, that was always the convincing factor for dessert but no complaints otherwise.

This was our first time dining at Capers and Lemons, but it won’t be our last. The food was delicious! Each person in our party of six ordered a different dish and no one was disappointed. The service was amazing!

Excellent food, went on a Saturday night, restaurant was very crowded and there was a very large party right next to us. Lots of noise. Food was slow coming to table but it was expected due to the crowd. Server appeared multiple times during the wait to see if we needed anything.
Better to go on Sunday or during the week.
Still a very good restaurant.

Usually a great experience. Our server was not very attentive, forgot to bring bread, then the meatballs. Didn't check up as things came out. Had to seek her out to let her know things weren't brought. Food remained excellent though.

The menu was nicely varied. 4 of us enjoyed appetizers, entrees & dessert, cocktails and wine. The food was fresh & well well prepared. Service was not rushed or slow. The drinks were tasty with a good pour for the wine. Looking forward to a return visit soon to try other menu items.

Sat outside and it was a beautiful day. Had the lasagna for the first time and it was delicious. Not totally satisfied with our waiter - a rarity at the Platinum Group but I think he might have found us a bit annoying. Drinks were great!
