    The food and especially the service, specifically our server “Grace” was over the top. She made the evening. We always enjoy Capers & Lemon. It is one of our favorites.The deserts were the icing on the cake.

    Having lunch at Capers and Lemons is always a delightful treat! The food is consistently delicious and the ambiance is conducive to conversation among friends. I like to be surprised by the various specials, which prove to be opportunities to experience something new and fun. Yesterday was no exception. The soup du jour was a true taste treat!

    Aspen was a fantastic server! Very knowledgeable and attentive. My boyfriend asked for their bourbon list, unfortunately Capers and Lemons does not have one BUT Aspen sure did! She proactively made her own list for situation’s specifically like this! The food was good - I wouldn’t say outstanding. The calamari app could have been fried a bit more and my friend’s husband’s bolognese was a bit too meaty without enough sauce. Other than those small details, it was a solid meal. We will be back, but likely just for lunch or brunch. Cheers.

    From when we arrived my fiancée and I were really impressed with everything. From the hostess who seated us to the waiter to food. We were treated fantastically and fabulously well. There were no issues with anything. I definitely would recommend and have already to anyone whether it’s a birthday, anniversary or just a romantic dinner with that special someone. The lighting in the evening is romantic. The waiter made sure were well taken care of and explained everything perfectly. We will be back to this great place.

    The service was excellent as was the food. We sat in the very back of the restaurant which we found to be a warm room with the mirrors on one wall. Eventually the AC must have been turned on as the room became more comfortable.

    I have been the customer of C&L for over 10 plus years. Never dissatisfied!! We ordered drinks, wine bottke, appetizers, main course, desserts. This is the very first time that food arrived cold (not hot temperature) and not tasted to our satisfaction. Our guess is that food was sitting to be picked and served. Service by the server was excellent. I would not blame the server for the taste or food temperature.

    Always a favorite. Nice dinning room vibrant but not noisy. We split a white pizza for appetizer. Great idea. Cheezy pie with crunchy crust just the right amount of garlic. Our meals were C&L classics. Chicken Romagnola and Roman were both big meals with ample chicken. The Romagnola was tender and a nice blush sauce. I added a bit of crushed peppers to pick up the heat a bit. The Romano looked tender with a nice breading. The restaurant allowed the substitution of gnocchi for linguini which proved to be a winner. The last meal was the short ribs with polenta. That was a tender serving of beef with a rich gravy. Drawback was the server was a bit to attentive and we felt like we were being a bit rushed. Once we ordered, it took a pretty long time for the entrees to come out, but that was not a problem since we were in no hurry. Otherwise it was an excellent and relaxing meal

    We've been going to capers and lemons for years and it just seems to me that their food quality has dropped off quite a bit from when we first started going wouldn't be bad if the price was dropping off too what the food is pricey and in my opinion isn't worth it anymore
