It was a great place to have an Easter dinner with friends we had not seen since the pandemic began. The service was friendly, courteous and accurate. The manager apologized for the wait for the food, but we were having a good conversation and had not noticed the time. The food was delicious.

There were 3 of us all celebrating our upcoming birthdays. Our experience was amazing from drinks at the bar before dinner to our actual dining experience. The staff was extremely attentive and well trained.

The food as always was good and I can always get at least one or two more meals at home from the portions served.

The restaurant handles social distancing extremely well. We all felt safe and cared for.

We purchased the cheesecake for dessert. The taste was good but such a small piece for so much money.

Great Lunch. Service was excellent and the food was wonderful. 2 chicken paninis and 1 chopped salad. Also had ice tea and 2 red wines which were excellent. The front desk staff was also every professional and helpful. We were running late for our reservation due to a funeral and they were very understanding and held our table for us. It was nice to finally get to dine indoors and we felt very safe dining there.

Our waiter was very attentive & remembered what my friend ordered last time she was there (she's gluten free). He placed the order correctly but it came out with a piece of bread on top. The manager immediate came to our table and apologized and they quickly prepared a fresh dish sans the bread. Appreciated the acknowledgment of the error and quick fix. Waiter top notch.

Three of us dined at Capers and Lemons this past Sunday. The service was excellent, friendly and helpful. One minor glitch with a friend’s side dish, not a big deal. Mashed potatoes were served to him rather than the pasta he had ordered. Most delicious mashed potatoes, let me add. The manager came by to say hello and check on us and we mentioned the minor problem and shortly thereafter she delivered to my friends a to go order of the pasta. The food was exceptional.

One of my favorite restaurants and I just haven't been since COVID. The protocols they take are outstanding including partitions between each of the booths so it made it feel like we were in our own private dining area. The service was outstanding and the food was great. Can't wait to go back

This was our second dining indoors since Covid and we were happy to see the dividers between the booths. I felt comfortable inside. We had caesar salads and they seemed to have gotten smaller than before. But the entrees were quite large. Chicken Piccata was big enough for two so we took a doggie bag home. Food tasted good but the menu has been cut back compared to previous to covid. Service was the best part of the evening, well done.
