    We enjoyed our meal and service from Rick. Rick always does an exceptional job. The dinners were good. My wife had the veal saltimbocca and I had the veal parmigiana. If anything, the portions were almost too large. We always enjoy the tiramisu for dessert.

    Capers & Lemons delivers consistently good food at a reasonable price. The waitstaff is always friendly and helpful. We enjoy eating there on a regular basis. We also frequent the Market for fresh marinara and other items.

    The veal parmigiana had precious little cheese. The veal itself was overcooked and dry. A disappointing entree. The veal saltimboca was also tasteless. Our server was fine however.

    We have dined here a few times. This night was not a winner. Portions were smaller than usual. Food was also slower. Like I said we have been here before and it was excellent. Could have been an off night.

    First time @ restaurant & definitely will not be the last! From Rick, our waiter, with the perfect combo of professional service & friendly personality, to Bonnie the manager who I would gladly work with, to the food & ambiance. We enjoyed a delicious cheese board w scrumptious breads, honeycomb & cherry jam. Steamed clams which sat in a juice I could have drank:-). To our gnocchi & stuffed meatball - 2 Italians here judging this 5🌟. Thrilled to have found a gem!

    I was impressed by the food but that may have been influenced by me waiting close to an hour to receive my entree. Went with my family for a belated birthday celebration. Would not go again unless I was not hungry and had time to wait an extra 15 minutes for each course.

    Server was very attentive but stretched thin with the number of tables he was servicing. Long waits for certain refills like bread and water. He was scrambling. Restaurant may have been short staffed⁹

    Although our waiter was excellent, it took half hour just to get coffee at Sunday brunch, and it took well over an hour to get food. The manager indicated they didn’t have the appropriate chef available to accommodate the volume of orders. I thought this was a poor excuse since they accepted the reservation. although I never asked for an accommodation the restaurant failed to even waive the price of the coffee.

    It was my daughter & son in law’s 1st wedding anniversary & chose their favorite restaurant for a celebration dinner. It was my husband’s & my first time there. We loved the restaurant- the food was plentiful, hot & delicious. The menu is wonderful with so many great choices. The service was really great. There were 2 extremely loud birthday parties going on in the dining room which truly disturbed everyone else’s dinner in the restaurant. The staff did apologize to us several times. Besides that, we did enjoy our dinner & the waiter surprised our daughter & son with a sparkler in their dessert - which means they pay close to details when you make reservations. It is a lovely restaurant - very nice ambiance & clean. Check out the very nice market by the lobby. We will be back.

    Our group of six thoroughly enjoyed dinner on the porch under the heaters. Aspen is a fantastic server and we will request her in the future. We all enjoyed the cheese and antipasto boards. The Lemon cocktail is really good too. What would make Capers and Lemons even better would be if the menu was marked with gluten-free and vegan options, and if gluten-free pasta and bread were options.
