Diner Reviews
  • "KC American Bistro has excellent food & service. The only downside is that they do not YET have a full bar--only wine and beer. Strong recommendation. The locals really like this place."

  • "Our waiter was excellent. Very attentive and great service. Food was okay. My scallops were good but nothing to write home about. My sister had the ritz cracker grouper. It was touted as being one of their best dishes. It was good but not fabulous. The prices were excellent for Naples."

  • "we chose this restaurant based on favourable reviews on tripadvisor however, after spending 200.00 per couple, we didn't expect to leave hungry. the food was very good however, the men found the portions were very small compared to other restaurants of this caliber. the décor was very nice but restaurant charges fifth ave prices despite their location in a strip mall at Vanderbilt beach rd. and 41. overall, pricey for a "bistro" -"

  • "A fine dining experience for me incorporates service, ambiance and of course good food. The best places have a way of making you feel welcome right away, we were not feeling the love at KC. The service was adequate and timely but awkward. Perhaps he was filling in? The restaurant is in a strip mall, it looks like the owners have put some work into it but somehow it lacked personality. Until the food arrived we were obviously not impressed. Some one really knows how to put together creative dishes. My wife had the short ribs and I had the scallops both were excellent. The accompanying sides with our meal were thoughtful and delicious and took the dishes to the next level. This place has potential but is just really good food enough?"

  • "I was pleasantly surprised at the very high quality restaurant that is KC American Bistro. I had never heard of it and decided to try it as I saw it on Open Table. It's located in a shopping center near the Ritz Carlton Beach Resort in Naples, and this is a gem based on the level of service, the presentation and highest quality of food. Victoria, our waitress, was superb and all the other employees that assisted in bringing our food added a further element of charm and sophistication in this elegant yet down to earth environment. Chef KC came out twice to check on us and others in the restaurant, which added to the personal level of service. The food was outstanding, and for someone who travels a lot, this is a unique find."

  • "First time dining at KC American a Bistro was a very pleasant experience. The staff was friendly, courteous, and professional. Our food was creatively presented and very fresh. We were very impressed with all our food choices( each had an appetizer or a salad, and one fish entree and one meat). The dessert menu looked very good and tempting, but we will be sure to leave room next time! We will definitely be returning for another great dining experience"

  • "Hidden in an older mall, who would expect such a fine restaurant? Genuinely friendly, efficient service from a young dynamic staff. A casual atmosphere, but the waiters are well groomed & in 'uniform', the linens are cloth & the guests still dress nicely for an evening out. How nice. Great wines by the glass. Creative appetizers, tasty combinations for the main course: interesting mix of flavors without being too bizarre. Fish, meat, chicken--something for everyone. And so conveniently located for us here in North Naples! No need to fight the crowds on 5th or 3rd Streets. We give this place a resounding 2 thumbs up."

  • "Would highly recommend this restaurant. Each diner had a different choice and three out of four were very pleased."

  • "Food was outstanding, with some innovative dishes without being overly "fancy.". Service was good. Decor is OK. Larger parties get their own section with less noise, so conversations can be had. Overall quite good."

  • "Our first visit to KC American Bistro was a resounding success. We were seated promptly for our reservation; had to wait a bit for a server to approach us for a drink order and for our drinks to arrive, but after that the evening unfolded beautifully. Our appetizers were delicious and our entrees were just as good. The menu holds many, many interesting choices and we will definitely return to sample them."

  • "We live less than a mile away from KC Bistro, but have never gone there. It just didn't look like much from the outside. Looked in from the window a couple of times, but it didn't look particularly compelling.They have recently expanded into an empty space, so we figured they must be successful. We were so surprised when we walked inside a couple of nights ago to see such a lovely, well decorated and inviting place! We had 3 different entrees and they were all outstanding and a little unusual. Service was great--very helpful with dinner suggestions. I definitely recommend KC and we will be back soon."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Your Mushroom Soup was outstanding. My Husband enjoyed is Red Fish meal and I had the scallops which were ample for a meal. Maybe a little chewy, but that's a scallop for you. We will definitely be back with out friends. Thank you. Your servers were delightful."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "We have visited KC on a number of occasions. Keith, owner and chef is always on hand overseeing both the front and back of the house. The food is quite good and well presented. We have introduced several friends to KC and they have expressed pleasure in the experience."
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "KC American Bistro has excellent food which is presented very nicely. I had the scallops with the cauliflower and it was superb. Friends had the grouper, which was recommended by the server, and they said it was excellent. This is becoming a restaurant that is becoming a restaurant that all the "locals" want to "go to". With the expansion, the ambience is also very good."

  • "I asked for a house Chardonnay and the waiter brought me the most expensive glass available. When I asked him what brand he brought he got all flustered and said I wanted it! Dishonest employee. Will never go back."

  • "Great food. Easy to find. Easy to park. Full but not crowded too close to other tables. Enjoyable."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "With all the excellent restaurants in Naples, KC needs something more to stand out. If we are going to drop $150 on a table for two, it's gotta be something I can't cook in my own kitchen. My husband had the filet, and the sauce was a regular au jus sauce. Something I can do at home. No distinct taste that makes me want to come back. I are the seared ahi tuna. All the food was good, just nothing that really stands out. I was recommended to try the tomatoes spinach salad. Again, good, but not outstanding. All that to say, I enjoyed our evening and enjoyed the restaurant, I just want to go someplace dynamite if I am gonna spans that kind of money."

  • "An interesting menu. Unique dishes. Great tastes. Would definitely return."

  • "This was an enjoyable dining experience. We were greeted right away and seated. The food was excellent. We had an appetizer of tomatoes with spinach and bacon that melted in your mouth. Presentation was perfect. Three out of four had the black grouper. We were all very pleased with our choice. It was served with their own tartar sauce and a medley of corn, tomatoe etc. just delicious. The fourth diner had the blackened grouper which he raved about. They do not have a a full liquor license yet and we found the wine list pricey. The decor left a lot to be desired. It was a turn off. Blank walls, sparce bar with beer bottles displayed. We will be back for the food."

  • "The food was presented very well and the taste was outstanding. The Chief visited our table and we commended him for his efforts."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "While the food at KC American Bistro is excellent, chef Keith and staff defy credibility with their excuses re why they do not yet have a liquor license. Noticed a major change in wait staff this time too, for the worse. And no espresso maker either? Time to pony up a few $$ and make the rest of the dining experience at KC up to the caliber of the food."

  • "absolutely fabulous food. wish they could get their liquor license approved as it seems they have done everything required and think this is the only thing holding back this great local place. what a boon for north naples to have such a great small owner gourmet restaurant. we love it! .....but would like a cocktail and would like to see them make more money??????????"
