We were there for the 2 dinners and a bottle of wine special. My started off with a cocktail each that were both very good. I added a Caesar salad with anchovies with my meatloaf and my wife had the Crispy Parmesan Sole. We both loved our dinners.

We felt rushed. Not given much time between arriving and feeling the need to order. Meal arrived within 10 minutes of ordering and was obviously pre-cooked. The mashed potato was greasy and not appetizing at all. Only managed a small consumption of it. Both my meal and that of my wife’s appears to have been sat for a while and re-heated. Observed other similar entrees ( lemon sole over mashed potato) upon leaving and they appeared to have a much better composition.
This was disappointing as, in fairness in Bistro 821, our previous food experience had been good. The ‘rushed’ part we have experienced previously and is something they really need to address. A dining experience should need be affected by the restaurants goal of getting as many people in and out as soon as possible, thus enhancing their bottom line.
May try another booking when we return later in the year but if things haven’t improved it will be our last. There are many more restaurant options on 5th Avenue and other popular eating spots in Naples.

Very disappointing. Reviews were so good & it was my birthday. Boulibasse was so oily/greasy.... worst I ever had. My friend ordered the same and agreed with my description. Others said their meal was good, but none of us plan to return.

The food is good. We did the promotional deal for two with a bottle of wine. The protein part of the meal is very small. It’s hard to complain about that since the price is very reasonable.

We arrived at 5:30 for early dining menu. The selections are very good and varied. I chose the Parmesan crusted sole and my husband chose the Asian shrimp with coconut rice. Both were outstanding. We were seated quite closely to other patrons, however it was delightful. The couple next to us were friendly and we found we had some things in common. Do not be fearful of the close proximity of other patrons. Getting back to the food, we ordered a side salad as an add on, one was more than ample and delicious for us to share. We highly recommend Bistro 821; we try to get there at least once while we are in Naples. It never disappoints , we know you will be pleased as well. Get your reservations in at least a week in advance if you are interested in the early dining menu. Two dinners and wine for 34. 95. The regular menu is also varied and very reasonable for high quality food, pleasant service and a fun atmosphere.

I’ve been to Bistro 821 several times over the past 3 years. The only thing I do not like is the bread. It is very dry and tasteless! Other than that, I love it there.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! We were seated immediately at a nice round table . Our server was friendly, efficient and timely. The beverages and bread were served within moments of our arrival; the food ordered and served soon thereafter. Everything came to the table hot and delicious! The Chilean sea bass is outstanding and just the right amount as it is served with a rich lemon butter sauce which is served over a bed of buttery mashed potatoes and green beans.

My husband upgraded the wine to a better selection - I upgraded the seabass and salad - outstanding meals all around. Can't wait to go back!

Having been a loyal customer since 1983, this is the 1st time I as terribly disappointed. Being on a diet, there was not much I could order from the Early Bird(I was being treated (no choice). My last resort was the mussels.I could drain off the butter. I wanted a side of vegetables. They came back swimming in butter/oil. There were only 12 mussels. I ordered a meal...not an app. My mother's fish dinner was also swimming in butter. She tried to pat dry the fish in order to eat it. She did not touch the potatoes & vegetables. When I server finally appeared, we told her of our disappointment. Her reaction was shrugged shoulders! Do not know if I will return.
P.S. Every year, we buy my sister a gift certificate for Christmas. Hmmmmm
