Diner Reviews
  • "Great spot for early dining. Food is excellent and service is also. The chef has a very imaginative pairing of items. I had scallops and he paired them w/a cauliflower soufflé and succotash. Delish. The filet was also excellent. Never disappointed."
    Dined on 8/20/2014
  • "The cauliflower soufflé is superb, and portions are sized. We had the scallops and the grouper and both were prepared perfectly - moist but cooked through. The beet salad and the kale salad were winners too."

  • "As this was our first, and definitely not our last, experience we followed our servers recommendations which were all delicious. We started with the signature Fried Green Tomato "BLT" Salad and the Maryland Crab Souffle with sweet corn puree. Both starters were beautifully presented and delicious. I do think that the word Souffle does not describe the dish quite well enough as there was an abundance of fresh blue crab as if it were a lighter crab cake. The entrees were the Blackened Red Snapper the Ritz Cracker Seared Black Grouper and both were also nicely presented and delicious. For dessert we were presented the Chocolate Ganache Torte with Crème - outstanding! All of this supported attentive and kind service."

  • "This is the BEST food I have had in Naples! I have lived here 20 years and eat OUT often! This was, by far, the BEST!! The Chef came to our table after dinner and introduced himself and asked how everything was. Haven't had THAT happen before in a Naples restaurant!! This place is a WINNER! In the Season, I'm sure we will have to make reservations FAR in advance!! Congrats to the Chef!!"

  • "Went to KC's on a Monday evening at 6:30. We were 4 adults and a baby. Service was impeccable, food even better! Chef greeted us at the table and asked how everything was. We all had the salmon; excellent. Baby was well behaved, and treated well. Andreea was our server; glasses were never empty. Couldn't ask for a nicer experience. Will definitely return and heartily recommend."

  • "The menu at KC's American Bistro features the best dishes from around the US. For example, the Northeast is presented by lobster sliders, and mussels etc. It's fun and interesting to try the various regional offerings. Every menu item is of the highest quality, is skillfully prepared and served with the utmost professionalism. KC's is top notch."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "My husband and I both had the scallops and they were HUGE, but tender and DELICIOUS! We will definitely be back."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • " We found that our bill was actually higher than it was supposed to be be, the 18% gratuity was not 18%, it totaled 22% although the printed bill said 18%. We were not informed that the gratuity was included in our total until the bill was presented to us. For food was good, but a little overpriced on the wine. $ 54.00 for 4 glasses of average at best."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The food is terrific but there are a couple of quirks. There is no expresso or cappuccino despite requests from many customers. Servers say they are tired of telling the owner. They will only present the bill to a man. Doesn't matter if a woman makes the reservation. This is the 21st century. Get with it. If you do not know who is paying the bill, place it in the middle of the table. We could not get only one scoop of ice cream. They don't serve it that way. We were willing to pay the full price. They are a little rigid but the food is good."

  • "KC Bistro is a neighborhood special find near Pelican Bay in Naples (across the street from the hustle and bustle of Mercato, but with much better parking). The menu focuses on regional American cuisine. I ordered the Caesar kale salad to start and the duck entrée. perfectly seared outside with warm juicy center. Absolutely incredible. My husband's tomato and spinach stack salad with warm bacon dressing was tempting as well. The chef mentioned that he hopes to have his liquor license by the end of summer. For now, the beer and wine list work well for us. They've expanded the original dining room with makes me believe KC Bistro is here to stay. Glad to see it! Best food in Naples. Take a break from Mercato and 5th Ave and dine here. "

  • "I had read reviews of the food so went in with some skeptisicm so as not to be disappointed. I was not! My mother, sister and I absolutely loved every dish we had. We loved the inventiveness that went into the dishes, and everything "worked" really well. The dates were melt in your mouth good, the mushroom soup was so flavorful, the watermelon salad light but with a beautiful tang of the cheese, the salmon was almost crunchy on the outside and soft and moist inside and paired perfectly with the blue cheese potatoes, etc. Yes, there was more :-) Definitely put on your list! "

  • "Great experience, as usual! Three couples, 1st visit for one of them. Rave reviews on wine, menu, presentation and service. How special that the Chef presents himself at food service - wonderful touch! We'll be back soon!"
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "The food here is terrific; the wait staff couldn't be nicer or more accommodating. We had one of the best meals we have ever had in Naples."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "The rack of lamb with couscous, the grouper, the mussels, the lobster sliders....all have been superlative as are the salads and the blueberry cobbler a la mode dessert ( along with the other desserts) are worth the calories. Service and cuisine are impeccable. "

  • "This restaurant is not a chain - The food is imaginative and well plated. Service is great. Decent wine list. Menu items are derived from different areas of the United States. I send my friends here all the time. Great place to take visitors to FL. Reservations are needed. Nice bar - "

  • "Loved it. Four of us ate here for our first time this weekend; each ordered something different and we will definitely go back. All meals were delicious, had interesting ingredients, were served hot, & presented attractively. When we told our server one member of our party was a vegan, she didn't miss a beat and assured us that the chef would pull together something interesting, which he did. The restaurant has the feel of an old Blockbuster video store that was brightly decorated to distract from its otherwise nondescript nature. It has an attractive bar, but only serves wine and beer at this point, but it had a nice selection of wines by the glass/bottle and beer. The chef came out and greeted each table, which was a nice touch. "

  • " Four of us great service and the food was delicious. However, we found it expensive. It was very clean and neat, but with no ambiance. In addition, we prefer a restaurant with a full bar (not just beer and wine). "
