    I have visited KC American Bistro many times, and the food is always spot on. The biggest problem they have is that they do not have a full bar and if someone doesn't drink wine or beer, they're out of luck here.

    The food and service was equal to and better than any five star restaurant we have dined at. Tried KC based on Yelp ratings. Great appetizer and entrees to choose from, both seafood and meat. Service was excellent across the board. KC is surrounded by all the big chain places but outshines them in every way. Highly recommend this restaurant. You won't be disappointed.

    It doesn't matter how many times we dine at KC's American Bistro the cuisine is always delicious. The tuna was greatly enjoyed by 2 of our party of 6, as was the salmon and rack of lamb. One in our party was in the mood for some penne with marinara, which wasn't on the menu, but was prepared for him and it was superlative. Can't beat KC's for cuisine, ease of parking and individualized service.

    We always enjoy KC American Bistro. Love the food, easy atmosphere and service. The chef is visible without being diva-like! He served our table this visit! Due to our old ears, we ate outside to avoid the noise level inside. This is one of the few places in Naples that I don't hesitate to take guests...they never seem to have an "off" night.

    Tried KC American Bistro for first time. Looks can be deceiving from the outside looks like a bunch of strip mall stores. But surprise! The moment you enter you are welcomed by a smiling hostess who makes you feel like a regular. The restaurant was packed and the inside is quite attratice. Food was great. Mussels, salads were wonderfully prepared and tasted great. We had rack of lamb that was served with vegetables and was prepared to our wishes. The rack tasted great. We liked this place and will definitely come back.

    The service is outstanding altho food comes out fast even telling server not in a rush, wine list has 2 red wines under $40, portions are very small for the price. Hearty diners will be disappointed example duck 6 oz, short ribs is one short rib, grouper is about 6 oz on a bed of coleslaw with 2 fingerling potatoes - all prepared well and enjoyable. Restaurant is extremely noisy,

    This restaurant is located in a strip mall, so does not look impressive on the outside. However, the food and decor is up to the quality of restaurants in the Mercado and downtown Naples. This was a girl's night out - we had a variety of entrees and wines and everyone was happy with their choices. I had the arugula salad and the beef short ribs. The beef was tender and tasty. Everything was fresh and well prepared. The service was excellent. The chef/owner came to each table to meet, greet and chat.

    KC's American Bistro's focus is to present US regional specialties. We dine there frequently and our fellow diners always rave about the crab soufflé starter, clean their plates and think about getting a second one. Then the entrees of grouper, rack of lamb, short ribs, duck, etc. please as well. This evening we shared desserts as every one was "dieting". Nevertheless, the mixed berry cobbler a la mode and the hot fudge sundae made the rounds of the table .... The Gordon Merlot was yummy as well.

    We tried the restaurant for the first time; it will definitely not be our last time there. The menu featured several innovative dishes (I loved the Gorgonzola-stuffed dates appetizer) at reasonable prices. Our waiter hit just the right note of attentive without hovering. Everything we ordered was delicious; even the bread was great! (We weren't that crazy about the truffle-oil infused butter but the waiter made regular butter available as well.) It was a delightful evening and we're eager to go back.

    KC's American Bistro offers excellent quality cuisine, and the most professional service. The rack of lamb is outstanding and if you ask to change the accompaniments...it's not a big deal. The fish offerings were plentiful and in our group of 6 diners, the scallops and snapper were a big hit. The mussels appetizer was yummy; love dipping the toasted bread that comes with into the delicious broth. The crab soufflé appetizer was also outstanding. Desserts are a must. Mixed berry cobbler a la mode is phenomenal. We enjoy KC's American Bistro often.

    KC's American Bistro has become our favorite. Our neighbors love to dine there as well. At our recent dinner, our guests enjoyed, trout, salmon, grouper, rack of lamb and duck with blueberry cobbler a la mode and carmel gelato for dessert. Each diner enjoyed every bite and our wines and beers were yummy as well. The service is hugely professional, competent and friendly. KC's is a great experience.

    Your House wine (Merlot) is overpriced. $12.50 per glass,Plus tip = $14.75. It should be in the price range of your Chardonnay $ 7 - $ 8. The serving was not exactly generous.We frequent your establishment Several times a year and usually bring friends.I suggest that you put a less expensive Merlot on your wine list.
