We had an excellent dinner experience. Best miso sake sea bass in town. An amazing kitchen offering a very varied menu. Good wine list. Service was excellent. We sat outside under the building eaves in a light rain and it was well worth the slight inconvenience of the rain. Unfortunately they only had 5 or 6 tables with guests seated inside and only two customers seated at what is normally a bustling bar. The staff appears to be doing everything right to survive the effects of the off season and the Covid pandemic. Bistro 821 cares about their customers and deserve our support.

Lovely service. Goat cheese spring rolls were just okay, not what we expected. Reminded of us crab Rangoon’s with too much cream cheese (in this case, goat cheese). The crab dip was pretty good but nothing overwhelmingly delicious. The ribs were fantastic. The tuna was also very good. The pork chop was not worth ordering again...fatty and fairly tough. Key lime brûlée pie was fantastic though! Average restaurant on the pricy side but great location right in downtown.

We had a great time but were uncomfortable with how they let a group congregate at the bar near us. That lasted about 15 minutes.

Great food and experience. We have been several times and are never disappointed. This time, we tried the crap dip, which was delicious. Another recommendation for appetizers is the goat cheese print rolls. Dinner was great, and one can never go wrong with the sea bass or snapper.

We had a delicious sea bass plate with a bottle of wine - wifey had Chicken Scallopini both dishes were part of the wine and dine special. Chicken could have been more tender and pounded thinner. Love the mashed potato/carrot with green beans and broccoli.

Thank you for following all CDC guidelines for covid 19. We felt safe and your employees are also safe. The tables were spaced appropriately and everything was clean and staff cleaned tables after use well. We will return and tell others how good you are doing with the new guidelines.

They did an outstanding job making us feel safe; employee masks, contact free menus with QR code, excellent spacing, disinfected pens for settling up. And....of course....the service and food was fantastic. Since it was our anniversary, they had sparkles on our table and treated us to a free dessert.

Another home run from the entire staff!! Everyone was super nice, inviting, and helpful- total team effort to make our dinner celebration very enjoyable!! James let us enjoy our friends visiting from out of town, and the kitchen staff pulled off another 5 star dinner! From the tuna roll to the escargot, the apps were a great start! Beef tips, seabass, and snapper all above expectations!! Will be back sooner than later, always an amazing experience!!

Was a little disturbed that the wait staff did not wear masks. Also the menu is a little confusing, esp. the wine and dine section

We were outside (GREAT) and the service was good as was the food- Lack of masks was the only issue.

We had the wine and dine menu (their 2 diners with wine) special. One meatloaf and one the pork loin both staples of the Wine and Dine menu. They were delicious both nice and hot and more than enough to eat. Sam our server was lovely and around just whenever we needed her. She made us feel very comfortable and welcomed.
I have been going to Bistro since they opened back in the mid 90's. The new renovation makes the restaurant look beautiful and fresh. I enjoyed the whole experience and always love going there.

I understand times are different and difficult, so I’ll preface my comments with that. Unfortunately, the risotto in my dish was not cooked-rice pretty much raw. It was disappointing, as I’ve been here before and very much enjoyed everything. I’ll chalk it up to the times.

First the service was amazing...Samantha was the best. Extremely personable and very good at what she does. The food was just OK. It wasn't bad....but it wasn't anything special. Nice people. And there location is a good one, and has to help them. All in all....there are a lot better places to eat in Naples.
