We had a very nice dining experience...it's not a chain which was a plus and can be hard to find sometimes. The food was good, they have great specials and the wait staff were superb.

Bistro 41 Special is outstanding
The Bistro 41 special which includes 2 3 course meala and a bottle of wine for a couple is outstanding.While the portions are not LARGE, that is one of the benefits! My only negative comment would be that the waitress should have been better trained before being assigned a table and whoever delivers the food should know to whom it is intended.
We have been several times before and look forward to a return visit.

"41" Special a great value...reasonable menu choices, adequate portions, and the additional of a bottle of wine is terrific. Would definitely come back.

My first time to this restaurant proved itself a place to return. I scheduled a small meeting over lunch, and it worked perfectly. The food was good, service great and it was quiet enough to meet and eat. I will be back with my husband to try dinner soon!

As in the past, the food and service was very good. The ability to make a reservation through Open Table is fantastic. It is simple to do and a reservation can be made at any time of the day or night. Great for working people!

Really nice restaurant. Attentive
Really nice restaurant. Attentive service, nice ambience and good food. Made my reservation several weeks in advance, and was kind of shocked that when we got there, they said that only inside tables were available (although there were plenty of outside tables open -- I guess they didn't have enough staff to service these). However, would definitely return to this place!!!!

Try the 41 menu - the value is a ++
The menu offered a welcome variety. We had 3 different dishes for the 4 of us and everyone was pleased not only with the preparation, but the taste and portion size.
The dessert was a chocohlic's fantasy, but was a bit too rich for 2 of us.
Our server arrived at the table when appropriate and left us lots of time to talk and eat.

Took Mother there for Easter
Took Mother there for Easter dinner as we've dined there before, and know what to expect. They offered a nice special menu for the Holiday with many options. We both had the Chipotle crusted prime rib, with more than enough to take the rest home. Cooked to order, served with mashed sweet potatoes, and asparagus just the way it should be prepared. Ordered their rose wine offering which I have when I'm there for lunch. We always have great service either for lunch or dinner.

Outdoor dining was available
Outdoor dining was available and we were seated inside without being given the option. We really didn't care. I was just surprised. The wait person was sensational and the food was excellent. Overall ambiance was not quite as "up" as I was expecting after dining at Bistro on the Bay the night before.

Always a favorite! Great deal, if you arrive before 6:30, $41 gets you a bottle of wine and two each; salad, entree, and dessert!

We arrived at 3:15 pm and sat at a high-top table in the bar area so our husbands could watch the Masters Championship. Our bartender, Don, was very friendly and recommended that we take advantage of the Happy Hour specials, which included 1/2 price appetizers, any of the wines by the glass, beers and many of their cocktails! He suggested a couple of his favorite appetizers, The Asian Calamari and Vegetable Spring rolls, which were delicious. We loved the Happy hour!(and saved quite a bit of money!).
After a little while we decided to dine on the patio. Our server, Haley, did a great job providing us attentive service and our dinner was superb! We will be back. Our compliments to the entire staff. Love Bistro 41

One of our favorite spots. Never disappoints. Took my Mother there for her 82nd birthday (her decision). Decided to do their Bisto 41 dinner for two. Food, service, wine, perfect as usual.

The Best Grouper
For my taste, the grouper is the best I've had. They pan-sear it and it has been awesome both times I've eaten there. Everything else (food, atmosphere, service) is above average, but the grouper is the best.
5/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place for lunch while shopping, or a nice quiet dinner. Last time there was Mothers Day (with my Mother)! They had a special menu, and plenty of selection, including a nice mimosa bar.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very nice experience...
Went to an early dinner before a local show. The server mentioned their Bistro 41 special. It was salad, meal, bottle of wine and dessert for two for $41! Awesome deal and delicious dinner.
Ambiance received three stars because of my preference for a different ceiling, of all things, because I notice details. But everything else was just fine.
5/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was there with 8 other ladies. We had a good time and didn't feel rushed by the server although the restaurant was crowded.
5/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
We all (party of 6) had a blast! The food was wonderful and service was great :) We were the only table in the place after 9 p.m., but we were having such a good time, we barely noticed. Everyone raved about the food and we will all be back!!!
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed this restaurant. We had the "41" special which is a good value. My wife had the pork which she enjoyed. I had the chicken with pasta. One small negative here, it was much spicier than I anticipated. But overall, a nice place. We will be back.

Wine University lots of fun!
I visited Bistro 41 to try their "wine university", which was a fun, informal wine tasting. We tasted 7 different wines, with the presenter giving a lot of information about the wines while we were tasting. There was a great crowd, probably around 50 people attending the event. I ordered the "41 flat", which is a cheese plate, to pair with the wines. The food, service, wine, and event were outstanding! I am looking forward to attending the rest of the "wine university" events they are holding this summer!

Prices were reasonable, food was good and in reasonable portions, not the place for a confidential meeting as seating is all open.
Service was very good.

Very nice, a little on the pricey side for being at a mall, but food was good and service was excellent.

Lovely find, wonderful food.
My daughter and I visited Fort Myers for the first time in July 2013. We had the pleasure of dining at Bayfront Bistro and enjoyed the ambience, food and our waitress was very attentive without being over bearing. As an add on to this wonderful evening we were extended a $50 Rebate to their other restaurant, Bistro 41. We made a reservation for the following evening and were not disappointed. The restaurant is very nice, the food was very good, and once again we had a waitress who was attentive and gave space for us to enjoy the ambiene and our meal. I will definitely visit both establishments on my next visit to Fort Myers.

Great food and service. Out of area guests marveled at the ambiance and the food. Waiter was excellent. I always and proud to have guest experience Bistro 41 and Bell Tower.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to go when you need to treat yourself but a bit pricey for routine dining out. Love the coupon we received from Bayfront in Ft. Myers Beach. The artwork is delightful!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had the 41 special. Can't beat the value for the price. Great food, great experience.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed our dinner very much. Wish they would add mahi to the menu.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Although I had made reservations they were hardly necessary, probably I hope, due to the time of year.
My guests and I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and were able to catch up on news over a couple of drinks.
Service was attentive without being overwhelming. Food was up to standard, as was presentation.
All in all a pleasant experience.

A Neighborhood Gem
Love going "off-season" ...no long waits and not crowded, although we were not there on a weekend... Our waiter, Greg, was very accommodating as we waited ..and waited ..for my husband to join us...once ordered our food arrived quickly...the Asian calamari appetizer is DELICIOUS... definitely a place to keep on our list of favorites.

Excellent for a business dinner
I came to Bistro 41 to meet several colleagues for a business dinner. Our server was great, she was efficient but not intrusive and allowed us the privacy and time to conduct our business properly. Our dinners were delicious and the wine was really good as well. Overall a great experience!
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wine dinner was fabulous!
I attended a wine dinner at Bistro 41 this evening that was 5 courses paired with wines. The food was outstanding and the wines were delicious. The pairings were great between the food and the wine for each course. Very well executed and the service was great, everyone really enjoyed the evening!

Good food selection, friendly and fast service, overall a great experience for lunch.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Although I was seated promptly and greeted with a friendly smile, the steak(s) we ordered were not tasty at all. My guest felt the same. The server was attentive but the food quality fell short. Especially when you are paying a premium.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had dinner at Bistro 41 last week and it was very enjoyable. The wine list is fantastic and offers a lot of variety. We had the Asian calamari as an appetizer, and skirt steak and Bistro chicken. Everything was really good and the service was excellent. We will be back!
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Comfortable early dining
We thoroughly enjoyed our steaks at this well-known restaurant. We'll return soon.

Restaurant has a nice feel both indoors and out.... noise moderate so god for conversation... food is mediocre.... too bad.. cervice tasted like watered down gazpacho...must order with care when you dine here

Better than past experiences
The staff was polite, asked questions, the food came out hot, and tasted fresh. Very pleases this time around.

Great dinner at Bistro 41
Enjoyed a half Caesar Salad, small plate of Mojo Pork and a glass of Merlot. Service was excellent, food superb and enjoyed sitting outside. My friend had the Salmon, which was delicious! The Mojo Pork came with fried plantains and black been purée, outstanding! Will go back again. Special salad, entree and dessert was available.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Worth more than one visit
My wife and I had dinner with a friend. We sat at our table drinking and talking for an hour before ordering. Our server was not obnoxious by trying to get us to order food. He just made sure we had enough to drink.
Dinner was delicious. I had the mussels which were fabulous, tasty and spicy.
After that we all had different salads and appetizers, all were really great.
Only negative, was dessert, creme brûlée it was not creamy much too solid.
But overall a really delicious and pleasant experience.

Dine & Wine special
The 2 for $41 dinner and wine special is always a good choice. The selections are good and 2 glasses of wine make it just right.

our second visit to Bistro
our second visit to Bistro 41 - once again the food was excellent. Service discreet and helpful. the early evening special offer is a real bargain for cooking at this level.

From the ambience, to the server, to the food quality everything was OUTSTANDING!!! Our server went above and beyond in keeping our evening birthday celebration enjoyable!

Perfect place for lunch
We met friends here for lunch. It had been a while since the last visit. Service was very good and the food was delicious. I think it is the perfect place to meet for a casual lunch with a good menu selection.
12/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
always a good experience
We have been loyal visitors to Bistro 41 and mostly now enjoy their early bird special at $41.00 up to 6.30pm. However, the food from the A la Carte menu is excellent and we would choose this place to go for a special meal also.
