What a lovely evening. We loved our crispy shrimp appetizers. My husband ordered the strip steak and he said it was the best steak he has had in Fl. I ordered the filet and macaroni and lobster. It was ok, tasted a little tinny. I would probably get the strip next time. The roll was delicious. Desert arrived by the... More

What a French treat this dowdy looking restaurant is. It is really hard to locate. It appears shabby from the outside but delightful inside. The menu was varied and international. My fois gras appetizer was perfect in every way. It was the real thing not a pate. The heirloom tomato salad was full of flavor and sweet. My husbands lamb... More

The food tastes very good. It is well presented. 20 persons all got their meals at the same time. Would have given 5 stars if the there was a choice of house wine. There was only 1 red and 1 white on offer for $8 a glass. If I chose another wine the price was $13 per glass and this... More

Chef/owner has won several awards for her expertise in culinary achievements & it is certainly evident in the menu, service & perfect pairings. It's a little hard to find although in the center of Punta Gorda (down an alley way) & also pricey but as most of us know "U get what U pay for"....worth a visit.

Perfect Caper has been our go-to place for special occasions - birthdays, anniversaries...or just a nice night out. Lunch and dinner are both wonderful, and the service is excellent.

We didn't have reservations, but staff accommodated us with a table in the bar area. Bartender and our server were excellent. Our food was very well prepared, excellent presentation and tasted delicious. We had calamari as an app and it was cooked perfectly. The scallops for main meal were done perfectly.

We reserve this place for special treats and love to take visitors there. The food never fails to impress. Our most recent visit saw the ambiance improved by better lighting and a roomier feel. The appetizers, though pricy, are generously sized and most could be a meal unto themselves--plan to share! Prices are higher than most area restaurants but then... More
