We love this place, one of the finest places to have a nice dinner in Florida! Specially in Punta Gorda Area.
Excellent night!!! Thank you!!!
Food very good. Portions more than adequate. I do wish they had a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc on the wine list
Wonderful staff. Amazing food. Beautiful restaurant!
Excellent dinner! Everything was truly delicious, from salads to the "Crab Cake" - that was beautiful lump crab with no filler! - to an amazing Gingerbread ice cream sandwich dessert. And our server was lovely, and very attentive to one guest's soy allergy. A topnotch experience!
Fantastic meal. Started with the curry mussels and fries to experience the dish that beat Bobby Flay. Three of us shared one portion. Plenty for an appetizer. Would be a great meal in itself. Salads were ok. Three main courses were all exceptional. Shrimp and grits, scallops and crabby scallops. Service is first class. Courses well spaced out. Nice wine list. Noise level a little high.
The appetizers (curry muscles and Calamari were excellent n a good size portion) three of us ordered the tile fish which was a special. We all found it very bland and somewhat overdone. One ordered scallops which were excellent. The service was excellent. Temperature n appearance of food was very good.
Absolutely wonderful special occasion dinner location! Food and service is spot on 💕
The Perfect Caper has been our favorite local restaurant. Everything is usually exceptional. Was disappointed this visit with the French Bread side ($5.00). This bread is typically worth the price but I’m pretty certain it was not fresh from the oven and, if I had to guess, was probably reheated from the lunch service. The miso salmon, which I have had many times, was off in both flavor and texture and it was served in a puddle of thin, tasteless “sauce” that had the consistency of water. I couldn’t finish it.
Two dear friends birthdays at The Perfect Caper was a special celebration for Ladies Night Out. We were a bit disappointed that our server never acknowledged our birthday ladies. Had we known there was no “dessert” for us to sing to them with, we would have ordered a dessert for them. We waited a long time for our bill and thought it was because she was preparing a birthday surprise.. too bad because it would have been the icing on the cake so to speak to our evening. If we had not mentioned in on the reservation and verbally to our server, we would not have expected anything. Sorry about the misunderstanding on both our parts.
We will return again and again as we love everything on your menu. Thank you.
It’s was amazing. I recommend splitting several dishes for the table. Sara was great!!
Such beautiful food and a lovely way to celebrate a special birthday. The veal chop and grouper dishes were spectacular.
For dog sitting and for mom getting out of the hospital.
As always everything was delicious. The waitress was attentive,funny and a treasure.
Great spot to meet between Naples and Sarasota. Excellent menu and food. Great service!
Unfortunately, the food and drink prices have gone up considerably.
The Veal Chop was a delight and the pasta side to die for I have never had a bad meal there but this on e was over the top plus a great wine selection...Thank you
Beautiful meal to celebrate new year
It was a great New Year’s Eve dinner! Everything was so delicious and presented so beautiful! We had a great time!
We have always had great meals at the Perfect Caper, this one was exceptional.
Fabulous food as always.
Never felt rushed.
Service by Linda outstanding
Everything was fabulous from the drinks to the dessert. Each dish is a work of art. Service is impeccable. Prices are on the high end but worth every cent.
Seated, greeted and served quickly. Wait staff was attentive and food was excellent t
We always stop in at the Perfect Caper when we are in town. Their menu always hits the spot for what we are craving. They are very direct in their COVID protocols, which is refreshing to see.
We really like this place. The wait staff was great. The Grouper special was excellent. Our Fig and Pig pork chop was ordered medium. It was well done and rather tough. Two in our party order the pork and were a bit disappointed. Hopefully they will rethink their new policy of charging for the bread. When you pay these prices bread should not be an optional pay item.
Superb!!No other words are needed!
Start to finish, an excellent experience. Perfect Caper is our "go to" special occasion dining spot.
When someone asks me where is a nice and good place to eat, I always recommend The Perfect Caper.
Wonderful! Thank you!
Great food and service. Pricey. Point deductions for Luke warm coffee for dessert and the Mask Mandate was obnoxious. This is Florida!
As usuaL, from appetizers to desserts, each dish was a superb marriage of flavours and textures beautifully presented. And just to top things off, Chef Jeanie dropped by our table to discuss her new cookbook with my wife, who had just purchased a copy. Fine dining with an unpretentious, friendly vibe. You won't find better anywhere.
Everything was fantastic. Server was wonderful and very attentive. I loved it.
Had the most delectable cuisine and efficient and thoughtful service. Noise level was probably somewhat higher than usual since it was Christmas Eve and many people were celebrating. Will definitely be back to try more of their unique dishes.
Priicey but the food and drinks were fantastic! Save up for a special occasion and go!
Sadly, we were extremely disappointed. I’ll start out with the only thing that was good, the atmosphere/décor. The service was ok, but nothing to write home about. The food was terrible! We started with the calamari which was like eating rubber bands. Then came the salads which tasted like there was only vinegar in the dressing, inedible. My husband got the Miso Salmon which he said was ‘ok’. Unfortunately mine was worse than ok. I got the Momma’s Chicken. The grits . . . well let’s just say if they gave us paper napkins instead of cloth, I would have spit it out. The chicken was bland and dry. I left all but a couple of bites of chicken on the plate. I ended up having dinner at home as I also did not eat the calamari or the salad.
The Perfect Caper is always on our agenda when we visit Punta Gorda. Consistently high quality service and food.
We celebrated our 48th Anniversary last night and everything was pure perfection. From the impeccable service (J), the incredible food, the exquisite presentation, to the elegant ambience, every single moment and bite was so stunning and memorable. Thank you to the Chefs, the waitstaff, and other staff for creating a night to remember. We WILL be back and can’t wait.
Love the “new” menu items. Duck breast & truffle fries….perfect! Noelle is an excellent server!
My 65th birthday. Way too loud! Service slow, food excellent.
Dinner at the Caper 2 weeks in a row. The food was amazing.
