Excellent! I love the Salmon with the Risotto, the bib salad is also a favorite of mine. I always get the salmon because it's the best around, never dry & cooked perfectly.

The quality of the food was good, but somewhat overpriced. We had to move tables, due to the happy hour commotion. Service was good, but waitress was not very friendly and we definitely felt rushed to clear the table for the next guests.

I was overcharged $122.50!! Waiting to her from the restaurant on this. Glad I saved my recipts!

Service was spotty and the waitress was grumpy! Love the food but the service has an adverse effect on my review.

I chose the special of the day which was pasta with vegetables. It was excellent. I absolutely love their gnocchi but decided to do something different. I was not disappointed at all. I always have to get the broccoli rabe because I think it is the best broccoli rabe anywhere. Again, I was not disappointed. This is a very nice restaurant. Our server was very accommodating and the ambience is very good. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The food, service and atmosphere is great. However, the extremely high noise level due to poor acoustics and uncomfortable chairs ruined our experience. We were unable to hold a conversation between the four of us. I am afraid we will think twice before coming back here.

Had 4 dishes. Entrees took a very long time to come out. All were underwhelming or had a very weird flavor. Will never return.

There were 3 in our party and each of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Red sauce full of flavor. Lemon wine sauce a perfect blend of flavors. Service attentive but didn't feel rushed. Only problem was finding the location. We were visiting relatives in DE, used GPS to locate the restaurant. Went around the block twice until we saw the cars in the parking lot. Could use a sign at the intersection to more easier locate the building. Wish they'd consider opening a restaurant in my home town.

We always enjoy dinner at Capers and Lemons. Happy to have had dinner outside in beautiful. We often find the noise level inside distracting.

One of the best restaurants in the area. The food is fantastic and reasonably priced. There is always a special or two in addition to the menu items. The wine list is almost exclusively comprised of very reasonably priced selections. Our serve recommended a special wine ( not on the usual list ) for only $32 a bottle that was fantastic.

We had a lovely experience on Monday evening on the patio, which was a quiet location and provided lovely weather. The food and wine were excellent, and Larry was an exceptional Server. He was very knowledgeable about the wine, as well as the entire menu. Exceptional evening!

A huge disappointment. Previously we’ve always had great food at this restaurant. I ordered Chicken Piccata with mashed potoroos. As I are the meal the texture of the chicken was tough and appeared over cooked, the sauce was very acidic and the mashed potato tasted burnt. I only picked at my meal and boxed the rest to bring home. With better lighting at home I could see the potatoes were in fact brown and the chicken definitely over cook and maybe old. I didn’t complain at the time because we were with friends and I didn’t want to spoil the evening as they had suggested we met at Capers and Lemons. I doubt that we’ll be going back anytime soon and will most certainly not be recommending this restaurant.

I really like the servers at this restaurant. Their recommendations are spot on. Thanks Mark for the cheese board suggestions, they were delicious. The main entree on the specials menu was also yummy goodness. The sweet ending of Franjelica over butter pecan was the icing on the cake, so to speak. Great job!
