    Lovely patio dining, recommend the salads and pastas. Excellent vegan and vegetarian options. Very slow service, even for Sunday brunch for 4 at 11:30. Our orders were simple, but waiting 30 min for a 3 vegetable antipasto appetizer and then another 45 mins. For two salads and two grilled cheese sandwiches is ridiculous. Lovely place, good food, but this old favorite now has some serious turnaround issues.

    The food was excellent. Everyone’s portions were generous with the exception of the cannelloni, not worth the price tag. Reservations are necessary if you want a guarantee on a table.

    My feet visit to Capers & Lemons; this place is excellent! Good drinks, great menu and delicious food! We had the Caesar Salad, Shrimp Scampi appetizer which was great. A pizza which was good. Our dinners were the Lasagna and Summer Corn Agnolotti which were "lick the dish" good. The pasta was "melt in your mouth" great! Our sever Mike was very friendly and efficient. I don't live in the area but I will definitely be returning in the near future!

    The food and service was top notch, but we never would have made the reservation of we knew how crowded and noisy the bar was. Conversation was impossible, Couldn’t even hear the waitress. Music way too loud, overall very unpleasant, wanted to get food boxed and leave. Also, the parking is inadequate for the capacity. We had to park in Agilent lot and long walk for elderly people.

    The service was excellent with Michael F. Our entrees were very good except for the Boston bibb salad. The lettuce was very green and wilted. The parts that should be discarded and not eaten! Otherwise, it's always enjoyable and hope the next time the salad will be like it's been in the past.

    I live in Rehoboth DE and wish we had restaurants as good as Capers & Lemons. The service, food and ambience were outstanding. Our server, Ellie, was most accommodating and attentive, as were others who came to the table. It was my second visit and I plan to return when in Wilmington, along with Taverna Rustica, another of their outstanding venues.

    Very good food and service and large portions of pasta dishes. White wine list by the glass too meager. They could easily include several more California chardonnays and sauvignon blancs. Noise level extremely loud making hearing our friends at our table for four very difficult. I recommend this restaurant for its food if you can tolerate the loudness.

    Capers and Lemons is one of my favorite restaurants. Not only because of the creativity reflected in their dishes but because the food is prepared to perfection and it is consistently done that way. They always introduce new things and I've been a customer since they opened and will continue as long as they stay this consistently not just good but great!

    Capers used to be my favorite restaurant. Lastnight I was extremely disappointed with the food. The short rib was horrible. The sauce tasted just like any other regular bbq sauce. Bring back the old recipe with the risotto!!
