pan seared jumbo lump crab cake, crispy fingerling potato, arugula, cucumber salad-papaya seed vinaigrette & papaya creme
grilled sea scallops topped with brulee jumbo lump crab and yuzu tobiko, coconut forbidden black rice, baby bok choy and apricot beurre blanc
jumbo prawns, wrapped in shredded filo, fried crisp, avocado relish, blood orange vinaigrette
The scallops were much smaller than last time (fall). Still very good but smaller than usual.
One of the best restaurants in Punta Gorda! They, wisely, spaced us out around the room. I felt comfortable eating there being able to see into the kitchen and all who worked there.
We were visiting family in Fla.
Had brunch there on Saturday. Outstanding food and service as always. I had the shrimp and grits which were so full of flavor and my husband had the crab Benedict which he also enjoyed. Had the chocolate bread pudding and lemon cheesecake for dessert with mocha coffee and cappuccino. Our favorite restaurant in Punta Gorda.
Excellent food, service and ambiance. A real gem. Will definitely be back.
As always, The Perfect Caper did a great job for lunch. Food was delicious. Service was attentive but not overbearing. I've been there many times and will continue to go there in the future.
As always, the Perfect Caper provided the perfect evening. This time we were celebrating our 21st wedding anniversary, but it is a lovely restaurant for everything from small plates and drinks with friends to date night. The food is divine, the service is exceptional, and the setting is intimate.
We are coming back Friday. The perfect Caper is our new favorite place to dine.
Amazing food great service
We went for Saturday brunch. We both had the eggs Benedict with the crab cake. It was sooooooo delicious and what an interesting take using a potato pancake instead of an English muffin.
Looked stunning and tasted even better!
Once again The Perfect Caper was a wonderful evening. Great food great ambience and an opportunity to chat with Chef Jeanie. This place is terrific. I can’t recommend it this highly enough to others.
This is the best restaurant in Punta Gorda from food to menu selection to service.
You don't now you're in FL.
We had a great lunch with friends from Naples... great food and very easy to talk... would definitely go back...
]Restaurant was very comfortable, lovely big booths. Service was good. Two people had the crab quiche and raved about it. My chicken paillard was only fair, a bit tough and small.
For lunch or dinner, you can't go wrong with the Perfect Caper! Great food, great ambiance, and friendly service!
The presentation and taste of the food was fabulous. The waiter Rafael was very knowledgeable about the food & wine and extremely pleasant. Rafael was also able to substitute a few items to fit my Keto diet. This is one of the best restaurants in town. My only complaint is the hostess, she was not friendly & had a bad attitude.
Oh my what a treat. Scallops with black rice was amazing. The beet salad could be great appetizer to share, so interesting, so much.
The food is always great as is the service. Went there twice in one week.
This was the first time we ate here. We brought friends for lunch. The food was outstanding the service superb . We will be back.
Everything was perfect !!! The food is awesome !!!❤️
Everything from starters to dessert was excellent. Our server was knowledgeable and always attentive at just the right times. Top raves include the "Crabby Scallops" and the "Moroccan Lamb". And everyone at the table were blown away by the beignets.
Had an excellent first experience completely. Food, service and all
The food is always so great! And the menu has lots of choices.
Nicole our server was amazing. Great energy. Food was delicious.
The server was below average.
Love, love this restaurant. I have always had excellent food and service from this restaurant. Ask for Nicole for you wait staff, she is the best!
Wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary.
It’s my favorite restaurant in Punta Gorda.
I had the filet la Maison with the crispy shrimp that was over cooked, the steak was perfectly cooked, my wife had crabby scallops very good with the over cooked crispy shrimp, the sauce had very little flavor. The waitress took our order and did not return to the table until we were done eating with the check, no one asked if the food was ok, at that time I would have asked about the asparagus, now I see that the menus has been changed online. A young man came to the table at one point just before serving and he was surprised that the bread was not at the table by now, if he hadn't we would have not know about it, I'm sure. We have heard about the restaurant for years as being good and expensive, we live in PGI for seven years, the food over all had little flavor and the men's room dirty and needs renovation and parking was scarce for a expensive restaurant, it was my wife's birthday and we were both disappointed. Filet mignon is customary served with asparagus and was on the menus that I read. Service is as important as the food in my view.
We met friends for a delicious dinner! Excellent food and service. It was worth the hour drive from Sarasota ! Very very happy with all aspects of the food and restaurant! Highly recommend!
Excellent cuisine Excellent presentation Excellent service!
Outstanding food and impeccable service! Grilled mahi with rice and macadamias was exceptional.
Excellent dining spot. Everything about the evening was wonderful. Service, food etc.
We had very special friends from out of town. Thank you Perfect Caper to show off Punta Gorda’s top restaurant. Gabriel was our waiter what a man of detail. Each of us had a wonderful meal. A night we will remember and our friends are saying best meal they had all stay.
This is one of the nicer restaurants in Punta Gorda. Usually, the experience is better than our visit on 2/23/20. The waiter put in the wrong appetizer order. Veal ordered medium came out rare. Ambiance was good and other food was great when it all arrived at the table.
The Perfect Caper has been one of our favorite restaurants for some years however this visit was a little disappointing. The "Perfect Caper Pate" was as good as ever and the Duck a deux facons was as remembered however the bed of rice and surrounding sauce of the Crabby Scallops was more or less cold and my daughters Filet La Saison was not the rare requested but medium at best. We probably should have pointed this out at the time but correcting it would have spoiled the cadence of the meal. Hope for better next time.
Food and service were exquisite. We went for Sunday Brunch but were given the option for dinner. We chose dinner and it was exquisite!
Our service from Nicole was exceptional
The Perfect Caper is a joy to find in a small town. Nothing you'd expect. The menu is unique and the food exceptional.
