We waited over 45 minutes before our drink order was filled and over an hour to get our first course. The food was delicious but we never expected that a dinner would take so long to be served.

Great starters as well as main dishes. Super bar (vodka with blue cheese stuffed olives). Very good wait staff and service. We stared with nice salads and then my wife had a wonderful Crab Cake dish and I had a Pasta Bolognese.

I am sure they would allow you in. But it is a very upscale restaurant with prices that match. If it is your nature, you might not be comfortable.

That's a great question - I believe they still own The Perfect Caper! It recently won an award from The Florida Trend Magazine's Golden Spoon...AND has been awarded this seven times!!
