Diner Reviews
  • "The staff is well trained; the food well prepared and various choice available. The nightly $32.95 deal including the bottle of win is terrific with a choise of about 6 entrees of different food groups. It would not be as crowded as it is if they were not doing it all RIGHT! If you don;t try Bistro 821 your missing good food, good service and a fun evening."

  • "Found the food good but the tables are very close together and the noise level was very high even out of season. Found the TV above the bar not in line with the price range of this restaurant. I expect that in a Sports Bar with relevant prices but not at these prices..."

  • "This was our first visit and we can't wait to go back! Our server Doug was the best server we had after dining out for 12 nights in a row in Naples. He was so helpful with his recommendations and we appreciated his service so much! The goat cheese app and empanadas were both creative and delicious! The best part, if you can't decide on an entree, get 2 half portions. What a great idea! The best snapper ever and wonderful sea bass. They make a great pair. This restaurant is one of our new favorites and I highly recommend it!! Thanks again to Doug for making our night extra special!"

  • " Bistro 821 has an offer for two entree's and a bottle of wine for early diners. Now we all know what wine comes with a dinner like this, we opted to order a drinkable bottle of wine. We started with over cooked calamari that had a fishy taste to it. Service was very nice and just ok. Entree's we had were meatloaf that got a just ok, then a 3.5oz piece of Sea Bass that looked like a postage stamp on a pile of mashed potato, tasty but 3.5 oz is a appetizer not an entree. The same small size Snapper was given a thumbs up. The final dish was a chicken and sausage dish with penne, that was over cooked. After dinner we sat for a long time then our server showed up and said thank you, dropped the check and left. We were never asked if we wanted desert or after dinner drinks, and we did. Oh well they wanted us to leave more then they wanted us to spend more money with them. Crowded tables, service that was more friendly then efficient and just ok food makes this a place to go people watching for a drink. (The place is packed so we may have had a bad night, or the free wine wins them over?} Early birds do pay the price it's just in portion sizes and service quality."

  • "Food was excellent and so was the service, but it was extremely noisey and crowded. The bar is very small and happy hour is at the bar only. There was no room to sit and no where to stand with a drink because you are in the sale that the Waite staff uses. We had to go to another restaurant for a happy hour drink and then back to Bistro to eat."

From our wine to our dinner everything was spectacular! We even had a complimentary dessert-flourless chocolate cake. It was out of this world delicious. We are from Wisconsin and we will be back every time we visit Naples! This is a must try place for everyone."

  • "We dined with another couple and both parties decided on the Wine & Dine upgrade. The Chilean Sea Bass was "to die for" as well as the Caesar salad, garlic mashed potatoes and fresh green beans. The wine options were good but by no means superior. Also, when the restaurant starts to fill up with customers around 7pm EST or later, the inside environment does become a bit noisy and the wait service starts to decline because of the amount of customers that require service. The good news is, it is a local hot spot, which can be attested to by the number of clients that choose it as a place to eat. We would definitely recommend Bistro821 and plan to return on our next visit to Naples."
