The Perfect Caper Ratings and Reviews
As always, The Perfect Caper is a wonderful place to meet friends for lunch. We live in Naples and they live in Bradenton so it is halfway in between. In many years, we have not even looked for another place. The menu is creative, the food is delicious, and the two-for-one lunch menu makes it a bargain. And, at least at lunch, it is quiet enough for conversation and there is no rush. We are allowed to stay awhile and visit.
Excellent all around. The bread that they bring to your table is baked fresh daily and it is so delicious. The appetizers were abundant and very tasty. Our dinners were amazing & the desserts were to die for! My husband brought me here for my birthday & it was a wonderful dining experience. Thank you!
Our table enjoyed the entire experience here. The kitchen cares about presentation which was obvious from the plating. The Salmon with Udon noodles had an authentic asian flavor profile and the Scallops on forbidden rice were delightful with their coconut accent. Chicken liver pate´ was served with crisps and jam, very nice. The room is comfortable with a combination of tables and deep booths in dark colors. Service was attentive and cheerful. I would not hesitate to make a reservation.
My significant other and I had dinner at the Perfect Caper while on
a short get away trip to Punta Gorda. It was a romantic atmosphere, the food and service were impeccable, highly recommended this restaurant and look forward to returning in the not too distant future.
Overall we enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent. The food was great but the presentation of the Shrimp and Grits was not as good as last time I ate this.
The AC was far too cold (even for a hot and sunny day).
Our bill (for five people) was in excess of $300 and makes me question whether it represents value for money (for a midweek meal) when you consider we only had appetisers and mains. One of our party had dessert and we had one bottle of wine plus 3 glasses of the house wine!!
One of the best restaurants I have found in SWFL. The food, service and setting was unbelievable. The staff was so incredibly knowledgeable on their unique menu, even explaining to us how they make a particular dish and where it came from. Our server was so sweet and gave the best recommendations. I loved it from start to finish!
Consistent..concerned service with a clean, modern setting. Nice food and portions. Have been there many times and it never disappoints. During the week, the price fix dinner is perfect, but anytime is a good time there. It is the best restaurant in the vicinity and a great special occasion place!
Second time there and this time for lunch. Mary Jane, our requested server, was delightful: refilling drinks and those marvelous bread rounds for our smorgasbord of awesome appetizers. The food was perfection: house pate, warm goat cheese and calamari apps made a perfect lunch for two, finished off with a shared creamed brûlée. Mmmmm- what's not to love?!?
The one restaurant in our area where you are never disappointed. The kitchen staff are all artists and eager to please. I was ordering a filet medium, yes medium, and since I knew how large and thick it was, I said they could butterfly it. Well, they did not have to. My steak arrived cooked to my exact specification and was the most lovely meal I have had in a long time.
In a small town loaded with restaurants, the Perfect Caper stands head and shoulders above the rest. Jeanie Roland is a Master Chef and everyone in her kitchen is there because they love to cook and they love to please every customer.
Lovely specialty drinks, a fine wine list and a great bar with the greatest burgers made with the trimmings from all those awesome steaks. You can't ask for better.
Our very favorite restaurant in SWFL! Everything is perfect...except the noise level! Please put the white tablecloths back on the tables! Cleans up the clientele a bit. I will never understand why drunk women need to speak so loudly . Maybe alcohol makes them deaf?
We had an excellent dinner last Saturday evening - one of the best. Our server, Gabriel, was very professional and attentive! And, he was very nice and friendly. He made our overall dining experience most positive! Thank you Gabriel and thank you chef for a wonderful evening.
