Wonderful dinner and delicious foodThank you Bistro 821 for making our first dinner as a married couple special! The sea bass and snapper were incredible and love those goat cheese spring rolls. Too bad we didn't have room for dessert...5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMHave to return...soon!After being given a rave review by our daughter, my husband treated me to an early Mother's Day dinner at Bistro 821. Let me tell you, it's not hype. Server, John, was gracious but not checking back constantly, which we like. We opted for their special of two entrees and a bottle of wine. My parmesan crusted sole over mashed potatoes and stir fry veggies was perfection. Paired with a Chardonnay and luscious dipping oil for freshly baked bread, I was in love with this little bistro. The only knock was that tables are situated tightly, so you may find yourself a few feet from another diner. However, the food quality, urban decor, and professional service must rank high in Naples. Great experience which I am willing to repeat!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA very enjoyable eveningI met a friend I had not seen in some time for dinner and had a very nice experience. The staff did not try to hurry us through. Noise was not so loud as to hinder our conversation. Food is imaginative and well prepared. A very enjoyable evening.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat evening dinnerWe really enjoy eating at Bistro 821. It is very convenient to go to Sugden Theatre after dinner. Always great service and wonderful choice of meals even on early dining menu. Would highly recommend to anyone traveling near fifth ave. Really is worth the extra drive from North Naples or Marco Island just to have a nice meal.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNine & Dine menu a real dealNine & Dine menu a real deal for 5th Ave. Even though we did the upgrade.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSolid performanceBistro 821 has maintained its high quality of food and service over the years. We were not in the least bit disappointed in our evening's experience. The Bistro salad had a nice compliment of greens and the spinach salad had an awesome bacon dressing. The chicken pot pie was a nice sized serving, not huge as at some other restaurants in town. The puff pastry crust was a nice addition. The tournadoes of beef were done to perfection. However the mushroom sauce was stronger than my taste for a sauce. I think is was the selection of mushrooms that made it so.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFour of us had a deliciousFour of us had a delicious meal & enjoyed dining outside.
Mark was quite attentive & took good care of us.

What a find, the food service and lively ambiance of this resturant are just great.I tried their bistro salad to start with that was very good with really nice flavours, followed by the coconut, ginger and lemon grass encrusted snapper which I can also recommend.The bistro itself is quite unassuming from the outside, but as soon as you walkin the whole place is a buzz with a warm friendly welcome. Towards the back there is a bar (which can be a little loud if your tables close by) where pre-dinner drinks can be had. The restuarant is well run, good servers who knew the menu well and were very helpful. I shall definitely be returning!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe alway enjoy the Bistrot821!We alway enjoy the Bistrot821! Great service and food!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMStill The BestStill the Best!!!
