Ideas near Punta Gorda for 60th Anniversary?

SNDG331 Jan 12, 2014 02:15 PM

My parents are celebrating their 60th anniversary at the end of the month. They've had many places they enjoyed in the southeast Florida region but we need a place within an hour's drive (and preferably close) to Punta Gorda worthy of such a celebration.

Traditional steak houses are probably their favorites; good service a must. Soft chairs or a nice booth preferred.

Any suggestions?

Many thanks!

    Perfect Caper is THE place in Punta Gorda. It probably leans toward French but is a very nice atmosphere and they do have steak on the menu.

      We wound up at the Perfect Caper for our celebration dinner last weekend. The food was all well-prepared, if a little "over described." The service was very lackadaisical by Miami standards of similarly-priced restaurants, but that seems typical of the places we've visited in the Punta Gorda area.

      Overall, it was a nice dining experience, but we'd hope for something more if we should be so lucky to celebrate their 65th or 70th anniversaries.

      Thanks for the recommendation!

      The Perfect Caper would be perfect for them.
