The Perfect Caper Ratings and Reviews

This was our first time at The Perfect Caper after reading about and hearing the many reviews. We were pleasantly surprised to find that the ambiance, the waiter and the food were all 5 star not to mention an absolutely perfect martini before dinner. I would definitely recommend the Perfect Caper to our friends.

My husband and I went to The Perfect Caper Friday night for our 14th anniversary dinner.
Our waitress was training someone while waiting on us, so I will excuse her for not checking on our table. I had to ask for drink refills and anything else I wanted. She never came back to the table until she asked if we wanted dessert.
My husband said his duck a deux was just ok. My filet mignon with lobster mac was terrible. The steak was like eating a baseball. Same shape and very tough. The lobster Mac noodles were pasty and the lobster tasted fishy and like it'd been frozen for a year. Terrible!
Had heard a lot of good reviews.. Won't get one from me. I've had better steaks at Longhorn. Bill totaled over 200.00 with tip. We did not have the dessert. Prob won't go back. Ever.

I can't imagine there is anywhere better in the region. This was an outstanding meal. I highly recommend having at least two, small plate appetizers plus an entrée. The cocktail selection is outstanding also - creative and contemporary. Chef Jeanie defeated Bobby Flay on "Iron Chef America" on Food Network - ask for the winning dish! - 'Loved it. I'll be sure to return when I next return to the area.

The Perfect Caper is our favorite restaurant in the Port Charlotte/Punta Gorda area. We have always had great service and food. Everyone there goes out of their way to take care of our needs. The food is outstanding. What a gem right here in Punta Gorda. Our biggest problem is picking what to have with so many wonderful choices.

Not my best meal here, i have eaten here before and it was much better. I had the mussels and a very disappointing sauce! Cream and leeks, no fresh herbs or garlic which for sure would have helped this very boring meal just no seasoning at all..I also ordered the brussel sprouts and apples salad, another disappointment, the brussel sprouts were not shaved enough i only ended up eating 1/2 of this salad due to the lack luster dressing, soft apples, and crunchy sprouts, Brussel Sprouts should be bruised, roasted or shaved thin!

Fantastic meal here as always. Great food, service and atmosphere. The calamari was amazing. The mussels were wonderful. The shrimp and grits were great. The beet tower salad was very good

The Perfect Caper is a great Punta Gorda, FL restaurant offering fresh ingredients and consistently good food. The Duck A Deux Facons is outstanding! Service is very good and the atmosphere is great for everything from a business lunch or dinner to "date night" or a special occasion.

Even with the abbreviated summer menu; Perfect Caper still satisfies those looking for upscale food in SW Florida. My favorite is one of the two scallop dishes but this time I branched out with the lamb gnocchi. The boneless lamb was very tasty and the homemade gnocchi was plentiful....maybe too plentiful.

Excellent gourmet food, superb service and a pleasing ambiance. My wife and I are huge fans of pan seared scallops, which we order frequently at gourmet restaurants, and these were by far the best we have ever had! The roasted lamb and gnochi dish was also succulent and very creative, as is the entire menu. We have sampled many fine restaurants in Punta Gorda, and this is our favorite. The Perfect Caper is the perfect place for an exciting and deeply satisfying culinary experience!

Perfect Caper was fabulous as usual. Food was outstanding, everyone was very pleased with their selection. Service was attentive but not intrusive, perfect. One of my favorite places to celebrate a special occasion.

Took my Mother-in-law and my wife for their birthdays. PC is one of our favorite spots in this area. The service was outstanding. Our server overheard parts of our conversation and realized that both ladies were celebrating birthdays and placed a candle in each of their deserts. Nice unexpected touch. I had the foie gras as an app and the filet as my dinner. Both dishes had no flavor. I don't think they even sprinkled a bit of salt or pepper on either. MIL had the goat salad and scallops and the wife had one of the special salads and the tuna special. They both raved how good it was and in fact I tasted both and they were both very good. My meal not so much. I will be back as we go on a regular basis but I know better not to order the Filet again (first time I ordered it in 5 years of going to PC). I normally love their foie gras, not sure what happened this time. Maybe I will stick with their special list and go with a salad and their fish special next time.
