“MAGNIFICENT MEAL AT THE CAPER”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

Our Family had a wonderful meal experience here last night. We started with the special Lobster Tacos which were amazing and very creative. There was so much lobster meat that it was spilling from the taco shell onto the plate. With this we had a bottle of 2010 Coelho Chardonnay which was wonderful. Later we had a 2006 Cheval des Andes which was superb. Next we had the special Beet salad which was beets and goat cheese mixed with arugula and peas and dried candied cranberries served as a stack. Delicious. My son had the special Tile fish which was very sweet and mild. I had the Berkshire pork which was cooked perfectly. I love the dressing that comes with it. My wife had the Mussels which are so perfect and consistent each time we get them. My daughter had the Crabby Scallops which were delicious and prepared perfectly. The service was exceptional as usual. Gabe runs a tight ship. The atmosphere is upscale and elegant, very vibrant and upbeat.

“Creative Cuisine”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

We always dine at Perfect Caper any time we are in Punta Gorda. The menu is creative yet comforting, offering favorite selections done with a bit of a twist. The Calamari with its sweet/spicy chili sauce is great if you like a little heat, and the Warm Goat Cheese is complimented with roasted pepper and kalamata olive. The menu does change seasonally which makes it exciting to try new items. The Filet Mignon entree is always excellent - cooked exactly to our liking. The same for the Scallops. Service here is exceptional, very attentive without being intrusive. Lively atmosphere, with a great bar.

“THE VERY BEST RESTAURANT IN SW FLORIDA”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

What a treat to have a fabulous restaurant in Punta Gorda, Florida. The ambiance is lovely and the food beyond compare - that goes for anywhere in the US. Have been there many times and never disappointed. Inventive dishes without being fussy and something for everyone. A real treat because of the abysmal assortment of other restaurants in this area. Run, don't walk, but make a reservation.

“Perfect food”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 via mobile

Loved the creative menu. The general atmosphere was very nice however, even though we had reservations well in advance, we were told the only table for four was in the bar. Unfortunately this was a traffic area between the main part of the restaurant and the restrooms.
