  • "We love this place for lunch. We always eat outdoors. No matter if it is mid summer, the real "dog days", it is always pleasant on that deck. We took our daughter and grandchildren for their first time. They loved it. Food is always good to excellent. Service has always been great but was Very slow this time. I highly recommend Bon Appetit"

  • "Giving a two for ridiculous wait on food and failure of manager to make it right. Nice view and food was good once we got it. It took well over an hour to get our meal. Manager (who looked about 19) did very little to make it right, which was disappointing. Our server , Lida,was good and kept checking on food but the kitchen was extremely slow. Be prepared to wait!!"

  • "We have been to Bon Appetit several times and always have enjoyed ourselves. This night we celebrated my wife,s birthday (a gentleman never mentions age). Our waiter Joseph was attentive, informative, professional, and most of all made us feel very welcome. The birthday girl had the rack of lamb, while I dined on the Dover Sole. Both were done perfectly. We have brought friends here at other times and, they too have been well pleased."

  • "Service was great I think her name was Angela. Appetizer was really good, fire cracker shrimp, very tasty and were excited for dinner because the appetizer was so delicious. I had the lobster linguini and my girlfriend had the chicken medallions. Both were inedible. The lobster tasted like it was 3 weeks old and had been sitting out and the sauce tasted like strait out of a fish container. The chicken medallions almost tasted sugar caramelized and then mixed with other awful flavors. Feel bad for the servers bc in all great opportunity with the view, but if the food is always that bad im sure you guys wont last. Best of luck and I would highly recommend a new chef."

  • "I enjoyed the lunch I had at Bon Appetit. The location is ideal, next to a marina right on the Gulf of Mexico. The menu is varied and the server experienced. When I tried the non-alcoholic wine and couldn't drink it, she noticed and removed it from the bill. I would invite friends interested in a leisurely, upscale meal to join me there."

  • "Bob Appetit in Dunedin is in one of the most scenic locations in the Tampa/St. Pete area and offers a nice variety of food and drink choices in an upscale, but relaxed, setting. Has a good selection of more basic items for those who feel the pretentiousness of most "foodies" is rather silly but also enough "creative" items to allow the latter to indulge their feelings of superiority. Their appetizer list is a particular strength."

  • "This was our first time dining here and I can tell you for certain, it will not be our last. To sum up our dining experience in one word- Delectable."

  • "The service and the food were outstanding. The view is breathtaking, and the wine list was extensive. This is our special restaurant."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "This is one of the few places with cloth tablecloths, professional wait staff, and a beautiful view that always makes dining feel personalized and special. We always made it a point to stop here when we used to vacation in Florida. Now that we're permanent residents, all our out of town visitors are treated to a hometown favorite of ours where we can show off our hometown and one of it's many special features. The menu is creative, but not intimidating. You can't go wrong if you choose any of the specials."

  • "Had a great table by the window to view the sunset. Quiet atmosphere with piano music. You could actually have a civil conversation. Food was good. Filet was tender with asparagus(a bit over cooked) sweet potato cake & a mystery veggie. Chocolate mousse was yummy. "

  • "This was our first time dining and we decided to bring my parents. The view from our table was spectacular! The service was exceptional, attentive but not overbearing. Dinner was delicious and everyone tried a bite to share. Dessert was decadent! We will definitely be back soon!"

  • "Our last night in Clearwater and did not know where to have dinner. After searching online we decided on Bon Appetit and are very happy we made the drive. It was the best dinner we had during our visit. Sea bass and Grouper were superb! Lovely place and spectacular view of sunset! Highly recommend it!"

  • "Our luncheon was all we expected: great food, attentive, friendly service, spectacular waterfront view. The grouper sandwich was awesome. We tried a smoked salmon with celery salad on apple pancakes, it was delicious and beautifully presented on the plate. The hamburger and fries were great. We are very selective when choosing a restaurant and this one earns a good star. We will return."
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "This is a terrific restaurant, with lots of good choices on the menu, and a beautiful setting on the water in Dunedin. Our only issue was that the wait times between courses were excessive in our view. Perhaps they were going for a relaxed, elegant, European pace, but we're not European. We'll be back. This is clearly one of the best restaurants in the Tampa area. "

  • "We ate outside in the early evening and loved it. What can be better than waterfront, excellent food, and good service. We have never had a bad experience at Bon Appetite. "

  • "Possibly the most spectacular waterfront restaurant there is- marina window views were simply amazing! We went in for late Sunday brunch on a warm spring afternoon after a tour of the local railroad museum and historic chapel celebrating International Museum Day. A lively well- heeled bunch of people were gathered here -and the ambiance with wine flowing from the terrace bar was beautiful. We had shrimp in garlic sauce and creme brulee with fresh fruit- all tasting delicious in the golden sunshine on the Gulf of Mexico. We enjoyed courteous service by a friendly waitress chatting about her home town of Budapest which we had recently visited. Very enjoyable experience all around- and well recommended!"

  • "We took my mother and mother in law there for a belated mothers day lunch and it was great. Food was awesome and very pleasant on the eyes, great presentation. The table was perfect with an awesome view of the water. Service was fast and professional. Look forward to my next visit."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "My family did the Mother's Day buffet - 7 of us and a toddler. The view of the gulf was spectacular. Each of us thought the food was fabulous including the toddler. The specialty drinks of the day were unusual by delicious. We each had 2 before we moved on to wine. Wait staff was attentive and had a lot of patience with the messy toddler. It was a great time for all."

  • "My wife and I had a wonderful experience there on Mothers Day. The food was outstanding as was the service. We are making Bon Appetit our special place."

  • "Was a little disappointed overall. Felt rushed by the wait staff. Food was good but presentation was very ordinary. It was noisier than I expected. Definitely a pretty view though. Probably will think twice before coming here again."

  • "You can see the water from anywhere in the restaurant. Not a bad table in the place. Great food, waiter was great, fast service, great ambience. One of my top 5 in the Tampa Bay area."

  • "This place has a great location and outdoor dining is very nice. beautiful views of the ocean. The food is most often mediocre and Im not a picky guy. Again, awesome setting….here's the almost comical part…the host…younger guy, very slender could not have been less friendly, almost angry…..yeah, the host!! wow….. hey owner!! give him a new job behind the public view! He was very cold to me and treated each and every guest he sat like they were bothering the heck out of him and interrupting his conversations with fellow staff at the restaurant….. this place could really be much better than it is….. I'm slow, and i keep coming back even though the experience is less than you'd expect…right down the street is cafe alfresco,awesome!"

  • "This is one of our go-to restaurants when we want to have delicious food and watch a beautiful sunset. There is live music inside and out and wonderful food. Have to recommend the Lobster Cocktail Appetizer. Delicious!! Very good espresso martinis. I do love their rack of lamb and my husband had a grilled grouper on a bed of lobster hash which was delicious also. Service is attentive but not intrusive. Love dining here. "

  • "Food was great as usual; service was on the slow side. Very disappointed as I made reservation for outside table but when I arrived early for my reservation I was told that outside had a 45 minute wait so we were seated inside. I certainly will not be making a reservation for outside again and probably will not be going back to this restaurant anytime soon."
