Hands down one of the finest meals I have had the pleasure of eating. Angela, our server, was on point, made fantastic recommendations, and clearly knows fine dining as every need was anticipated yet she never intruded. My husband is highly particular when it comes to steak and the filet was on point and the lobster tail was the best we have found anywhere. The shank feature was full of flavor and accompanied by ample sides. The flourless chocolate cake - there are no words for how delicious it is! Hands down a fantastic experience with decor to match. I am huge on lighting and this place has it perfected!

Our server was friendly and professional and our meal was fabulous. The veal chop and grouper specials were delicious! The server recommended the punch of the day for the cocktail and I really enjoyed it. Thank you!

Everything about our meal was outstanding… the lemon Parmesan sole was delicious as was the risotto caprese with shrimp. Wish we lived in Naples… this would be a regular dining spot.

They have a great happy hour if you want just a little plate and a cocktail. We did that before celebrating her birthday with entrees and a dessert. They never fail to impress.

Great experience at Bistro 821! The service was great and the food was fantastic. They noted our Anniversary from our profile and put some heart decorations on the table! And the celebration dessert they gave to us was awesome! Such a great place!

Dinner was very good but for some reason I asked 4 servers/waiters/etc. to bring us more rolls (received 4 for 4 persons) and finally at the end of the meal when I asked again they bought us 2 rolls.
Don't care to be ignored.

Oh my word!!! Bistro 821 has by far the most delicious Chilean Sea Bass with that unbelievable carrot mashed potato!!! The hostess always remembers me. The staff is incredibly kind and happy. Bistro 821 is by far the best on 5th and the best in all of Naples.
I promise if you dine there your evening will be filled with a million wonderful little moments.

One of my favorite restaurants in town. Frequent this restaurant at least 8-10 times a year for last 20 years. Never a disappointment. Jessy and his kitchen staff have been together for a long time. Prices are reasonable and portions are fulfilling.

There were 7 of us for dinner and 5 of the 7 were having dinner at Bistro 821 for the first time. EVERYTHING, from the Escargo and Ahi Tuna apps to the salads and main courses were absolutely delicious! Rave reviews from those who ordered the Grouper special, the Sole, the Snapper and especially the Sea Bass!

We had family in for the weekend and decided on Bistro 821 for an early dinner. Their early dining menu offers a great selection for $29 for a pick two. Three of us had the sea bass and Caesar salad, one opted for pasta, another the pork chop and finally the chicken and soup of the day. There were complements all around. Our only complaint would be undercooked Zeppoli for dessert but our server graciously removed it from our bill. Wine and cocktails were also a great price.

The guy at the bar wearing a tank top was a big turn-off.
