The restaurant offers a summer special to get people in the door because this is such a seasonal community. The restaurant was crowded and noisy. I think in part to a play at the local theater nearby. That is why we were there. Eight of us. For specials like this the food is not the best, just average and in quantity to feed the crowds. I don't think I would go back for the deal or on a regular evening.

My husband and I were staying in Naples, Florida, and enjoyed a truly amazing dining experience. We arrived early and headed to the bar for a drink while our table by the window was prepared. The bartender offered immediately that it was Happy Hour. We indulged in a refreshing glass of wine which he recommended and delicious crab dip. Our window table was a treat and we were able to people watch as we dined. My husband devoured his tenderloin tips with gorgonzola and my salad was one of the best I have ever eaten. Bistro 821 was a hit and we will definitely dine there again on a return visit to Naples.

I was disappointed in size of the portions. We went for summer special menu, two dinners and a bottle of wine. The bottle of wine we got sells at Wal-Mart for $5.00. My baby back ribs were not as good as those at a local chain. The salad was greens with a piece of tomato and a little onion. The bread was very good, warm, fresh and crusty. Service was attentive. Just disappointed in the food for the price. Bill for two was $75 with tip. A lot for a “special”.

I went to Bistro 821 to try their special deal menu. I ordered the Pork Loin Cutlet for dinner which was outstanding. Since I ordered off the special menu, I was pleasantly surprise how large the portions that I was served for my meal. The presentation of food was terrific. Hands down, one the best meals that I ever had in Naples, FL. The service was on point and our server was extremely informative and friendly. She was the one who recommended my meal. Overall, it was an amazing experience. I can't wait to go back!

My wife and I chose Bistro 821 again to celebrate our anniversary. We had requested our favorite table and It was waiting for us when we arrived.
As always, the food and the service were fantastic which made celebrating our 47th Anniversary most enjoyable.

Bistro 821's early bird specials are well worth the price: the variety of entrees, the quality of the wine, the portions, the excellenc of each selection (we have tried all of the early bird entrees) are all reasons for returning to this dining establishment.

We ordered duck it was tuff and asparagus was hard the service was skeet once the restaurant was fuller. We asked to taste the pot roast and were told it was all proportioned out and couldn’t sample it. Made us believe it was all prepared and not cooked onsite. Kitchen was noisy .

I love Bistro 821, the food is great, beautiful setting, a cut above the other 5th ave. restaurants. Unfortunately they suffer from an affliction many fine restaurants have trouble dealing with, loud unruly children. Maybe they shouldn't put them right smack in the middle of the restaurant were they can ruin everybody's dinner?
