Diner Reviews
  • "We have been at Bon Appetit many times, for dining, a wedding, and special occasions, and have ALWAYS been pleased with our visits! The Easter Dinner could not have been better.... The table was overlooking the water, our waiter was excellent, and the food was terrific. We had the Filet Mignon and the rack of lamb. Both done exactly the way we ordered them. Will definitely go back again and again. "

  • "We made a reservation at Bon Appetit for 5 PM on Easter Sunday. And although we arrived a 1/2 hour early we were seated as soon as we arrived. Considering it was fairly crowded due to the holiday we were waited on in a timely manner. My wife and I both had the rack of lamb and it was done perfectly. The entire fixed price meal was very good although rather pricey. The food combined with the usual spectacular view of the Gulf of Mexico made for a very enjoyable holiday meal."

  • "The waiter was slightly surly and the young man who brings fresh bread to the table forgot us, and we spent $45 for 2 salads with salmon and 2 glasses of iced tea... for lunch... but none of that mattered so much because the food, the view and the ambiance were all so wonderful. This was my third trip to this beautiful jewel tucked away on the waterfront in downtown Dunedin, and I'll keep going back, but only for special occasions -- it's too pricey for everyday meals out."

  • "We came in the early afternoon and sat indoors. The scenery of the Gulf waters through the ample windows can't be surpassed. Our waiter, Joseph, was very attentive and enjoyable. The piano player was an added touch. The food, unfortunately, was rather bland. Perhaps the seasoning was limited due to the number of eldery people dining. Maybe the waiter can ask for the a level of seasoning when taking orders: Like "1"is no seasoning and "5" is spicey...."

  • "The sitting outside was excellent view. Emad our server was amazing and entertaining. The oysters on half shell were delicious. Entrees not so much..steak was tasteless, salmon bland , and chicken sandwich so dry that it could not be finished. Go for the view not the food"

  • "Bon Appetitis one of our favorite restaurants. This is the second time my husband chose it for his birthday and our group was very pleased again. The dinners were wonderful, the service can't be beat and we so enjoy Kathy, who is such so talented playing songs we request on the piano. Bon Appetit probably has the best water view of any restaurant in the area."

  • "Booked dinner here before an evening at the Capitol Theater. The food was very good; the service fast and attentive. We shared a dessert sampler that was as delicious as it was beautiful! Having a table in the corner by the window gave a fantastic view of the bay - the only downside being the 4 huge flies in the room were buzzing overhead as they continued to bump into the glass in an effort to find their way out. I guess the good news was they were so busy with that endeavor, they never attempted to land on our table. But, really, it was very slow when we got there, couldn't someone have taken a flyswatter to them BEFORE the diners arrived?"

  • "As I had left the area for six years, I wan't sure if Bon Appetit would still be as good as it was previously. My sister and I (no spring chickens ourselves) met older friends we hadn't seen for many years. One of our guests has difficulty walking - valet service and ramp into the restaurant made it easy. The choices were varied and the combination special met all our needs- at a price retirees could afford. Thanks. Good service from a smiling young woman (blond hair pulled back - neglected to get her name. I'll be back- just yesterday I told a group of women how nice Bon Appetitit was for lunch/dinner"

  • "Mom's 90th birthday was held at your restaurant on Sunday, May 30th and she was delightfully surprised by the ambiance and delicious food. The pork chop my husband ordered was very tasty but tuff, otherwise, we were all pleased with our choices. The waiter was fabulous. For the rest of the day, Mom kept saying this was a birthday she will never forget. Thank your for making it so special"

  • "This was our second time at this restaurant, and service, experience and food quality was very consistent from one visit to the next. This time we brought my wife's aunt and uncle, and they loved it. Bon Appetit's demographic definitely trends older; both times my wife and I were the youngest customers in the dining room. Great view for sunset, so plan your reservation accordingly- they also have an outside bar and seating, which does seem to get a wider variety of clientel compared to the dining room."

  • "We love making a special date with friends during our snow bird time in Dunedin. It is fun to "dress up", but we don't have to. Dress up is no flip flops and jeans to us. The food was excellent and the service was very attentive. The whole time we spent there was so relaxing and not rushed."

  • "I was looking for a nice restaurant for our last night in FL before heading back home and wanted to get something on the water where we could watch the sunset but didn't want to get caught up in the craziness of Gulf Blvd. traffic. After reviewing several restaurants on Open Table, I found Bon Appetit, and it delivered on every aspect. It was nice to go to a restaurant that was a little more upscale in terms of the atmosphere, had live music, and incredible sunset views. And the food... just incredible! The service was impeccable as well. Highly recommend Bon Appetit, we will absolutely be back next time we are in the area."

  • "At 7:30pm the restaurant was out of grouper and a number of other menu items. As it turns out, it was also out of the dessert I ordered...the raspberry pudding. By the time we left at 9:30, the valet had also left leaving our car keys. The food was okay.......certainly not great........and overall disappointing."

  • "Bon Appetit is a fabulous restaurant. They took Osco Buco off the menu but, we were able to call a few days ahead of our reservation to request 4 orders, the restaurant was very accommodating to our request. Lamb chops are probably the best in Dunedin. The soup selection is OK as is the potato of the day. Wished they would serve baked potato."

  • "We used to dine here frequently 9+ years ago, but moved away from area. Didn't know what to expect after all that time, but it was as we remembered it. Excellent. Brought friends from Europe who dine all over the continent and they really loved it. Great and varied menu, attentive service, piano bar and great view of the gulf. What more could you ask for?"

  • "Have eaten here many times never disappointed. Beautiful spot right on the water food is delicious and service is good. When weather permits eating outside is a delight."

  • "made reservations online then later got a confirmation. so I wanted to surprise my girlfriend with a romantic dinner. when we arrived was impressed with how clean and vibrant everything was. walked in and gave my name and within minutes we were seated. every thing was perfect from the appetizers to the main course. portions were more than plentiful. what really impressed me was the waitress, when ever she came to the table she would wait till I or my girl was done talking and ask how everything is. that's important to me. I have been to other restaurant's where the waiters or waitress just walks up and interrupts the conversation. but our waitress was stellar and very professional"

  • "Finally, a place we can dress more than just the usual Florida comfortable casual! Our family moved to Florida recently and although we thoroughly appreciate the extreme casual wardrobe choices, we miss enjoying a more upscale dinner and dressing more pretty without feeling out of place. Great food, great service."

  • "Love the atmosphere and setting of this beautiful restaurant; consistently great food and service and always a treat for our West coast friends to meet us here for a reunion. We've been doing this every year for 16 years as a must-see place in Florida, wouldn't miss it!"

  • "Clearly we like this restaurant, as we keep going back. My parents adore it, so when we take them out it's their first choice. White table clothes, a real rose, the whole deal. Our waiter talked a little fast and was hard to understand (the restaurant is a little noisy, though not terrible), and brought me red rather than the white wine I ordered, then argued with me before changing it (which he ultimately did). We enjoyed the meal. I had the steamed mussels which were fantastic; leek white wine sauce so good that everyone tasted it and I consider one of the best I have ever had. My husband has the lobster pasta, which was tasty but too much pasta... Other than that, it was great. We always enjoy the pianist, as we did this time."

  • "This is a great place with only one negative. They allow dogs. I am not in favor of any place that allows animals unless they are service dogs. The couple next to us had a dog who constantly jumped at me after our food was served. The owner made no attempt to control the animal."

  • "My son came to visit & wanted to eat by the waterfront. I picked Bon Appetit, as I had eaten there before with a group of friends & had a delicious meal. I had the Fillet & my son chose the Lobster Linguini, both were just delicious! Our server was Callie, who took excellent care of us. She was very attentive and made our evening very special. I would recommend this restaurant without any reservations!!"

  • "Just a nice place to dine - service excellent - steak was a little grizzley but they took it off - and not a big deal - but, wonder why with steak they do not have a baked potatoe - seems strange - but, a nice classy place to dine - well organized."

We were able to have our first cocktail before the sun set and complemented with an excellent dinner and dessert, we enjoyed a lovely evening."
