  • "The overall experience was quite positive. Our server was well-informed, friendly, and responsive. The bay scallops were succulent and the snapper was delicious. They instantly accommodated an allergy issue. The wine list had plenty of tasty selections. The place is a bit loud when full but otherwise a great spot in old Naples."

  • "A great deal during Happy Hour ( 4:30- 6 PM) when the dinner/'wine special is offered. Selection is very good with plenty to choose from and other selections to upgrade the meal. It had been a good while since we had been there- since we were right in the area we brought up Open Table on the phone and made the selection, getting the last opening available. One great feature of Open Table- think of the place; check it out on Open Table; select it and GO. Delightful after-the-show dinner with great take-away!!"

  • "Bistro 821 came highly recommended by a local, and it turned out to be fantastic. Excellent staff, chefs, food and atmosphere. When I struggled to select either the filet or shrimp, the waiter recommended I combine the two as part of their "pick two" menu item..., crisis averted. It's was fantastic. Others in our party ordered the Chilean Sea Bass that nearly tasted like a dessert, it was that good. Definite "must" when in Naples."

  • "This was our first time here and we were impressed with the food quality and the service. We had snapper, sea bass, bouillabaisse and the kids had a pasta dish with chicken and everyone really enjoyed their meal. We all were impressed with how hot the food was so we knew it was not sitting in the kitchen. We will definitely go back"

  • "Always went to Bistro when they first opened. It was our groups go to place. Food and service always above standard. Even with large groups. Been out of town for a few years and its still as great as ever. Billy knows how to run a restaurant."

  • "This restaurant had a nice menu with lots so options in small and large portions which liked. Food was very good and nicely presented. My only complaint was the service. It was a little impersonal with several different staff bring different food items and not knowing to whom they belong. Bread was not replaced when asked and neither were water glasses refilled"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Had the red snapper encrusted in coconut with chill sauce and it was phenomenal. The dish had something that I was allergic to on it and the server quickly brought me a new entree immediately. He handled it really well even though it was my fault for not mentioning it when ordering."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Always a good meal. Excellent selection of items. The "pick two"choice is always a good choice when you can't decide. I had the snapper and lobster. Filling. Presented perfectly and both items prepared perfectly. Sometimes loud on a Saturday night but that's typical for a nice restaurant in Naples in season. Casual elegant."

  • "My wife and I ordered the Sea Bass. It was excellent. The flavor was indecribably delicious! Will definitely order it again. A few weeks ago had the Red Snapper that was also delicious. We come to Naples each winter and plan to eat at Bistro 821 at least a couple times."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "What stands out here is the extensive menu. Several soups, good salads (regular or entree size) land and sea and a nice list of sides one of which I had for my main meal - 6 jumbo grilled shrimp in lemon butter sauce. There was a "pick 2 or 3" section allowing you to select lobster, shrimp, scallops, filet, etc to create your own surf and turf or seafood platter. Portions were good and the variety of selections allowed you to put together a nice meal. If ordered before 6:00 P.M. one could have a 3 course meal for a fixed reasonable price. A nice place but very busy, crowded and noisy. Tables pretty close together."

  • "My wife and I dined here on a Sun. evening recently at 8:30. We were seated promptly for our reservation and ordered an appetizer. In what seemed like 30 seconds, it arrived before we'd even had a chance to look over the wine menu. That was the general tone for the night--the food was delicious but things arrived so quickly and immediately after we'd ordered or finished a previous course that it felt like we were being rushed through. I would definitely recommend the sea bass and my wife's snapper was equally delicious. Just don't expect much time for conversation--they expect you to eat and move on."
