Make sure to visit the bar and ask for Josh - he is very creative. Food was amazing. Great place to spend with family and friends or just for a cozy place for a couple.

I have reviewed the restaurant in the past and want to do so again as he menu has changed. -White cloth dining with a casual dress code. -White cloth service with wonderful timing. Service was not rushed, time to spend times with family and friends. When you want a great evening with great service and food this is the place.... More

This place was amazing!!! Everything was what you would ask for. By far the BEST STEAK I have ever had. The mussel appetizer was off the chart.

My spouse and i love this great restauant. This was our third New Years Eve romantic dinner at this venue. The table that had been picked for us was still occupied when we arrived for our nine oclock reservation. Another offered but we decided to wait in the bar. Well taken care of there by Josh and James. The lovely... More

We dine here a couple of times each winter during our annual escape from Canadian weather. It's a favorite. Again this year, we visited for Christmas dinner, and were pleased to have Jim serve us again. He is a genuinely gregarious big guy, and a great waiter. We started with the crispy shrimp appetizer --- jumbo prawns, wrapped in shredded... More

One of our favorite spots. Server (Shuana sp?) was excellent as always. The food is always great as I never had a bad meal, just sometimes it is better than other times. This time the meal was excellent. The Foie Gras ap was over the top (again sometimes it is a hit or miss). I had the braised lamb and... More

Really enjoyed the Two for One lunch special. Had the cup of soup & 1/2 sandwich. It was carrot soup which sounded yucky but was excellent! I'd order it again. My chicken salad was delicious and I was pleasantly surprised my lunch came with a side salad. My husband ordered the chicken flouta (sp?) which was also delish. Have been... More

Whether you walk in the back to the bar (more casual, but both the bar menu and dining menu are offered), or have reservations in the dining room, the Perfect Caper offers well seasoned and pretty dishes. We have enjoyed mussels in broth, crab cakes, the burger. All are wonderful! Crispy pommes frites arrive with the burger. My husband and... More
