The 2 entrees plus a bottle of wine special was great and they easily got us to the theatre for the 7:30 curtain.

My husband is critically ill and I was in Naples with family to close on the sale of our property. It was very depressing. The staff at the Bistro knows how much I love their restaurant and went out of their way to make it a wonderful evening. I will be back, but will always remember that evening and how special it was.
Thank you all. ❤️❤️❤️

Excellent atmosphere and food. We waited to get a table outside and I’m so glad that we did, it was fabulous! We were celebrating two 50th Birthdays and the staff made it special with Happy Birthday confetti on our table and wonderful birthday desserts.

The food and service were outstanding as always however we were a little disappointed in our table location. Booking our reservation online at least 2 weeks in advance and celebrating a birthday I would have hoped for a table not in the back corner. That being said, there are no complains as to the value, taste and service we received. Bistro 821 is still one of our most favorite restaurants on 5th Ave.

Great location on 5th Avenue. The seafood risotto and miso glazed sea bass were excellent. Our reservation was honored on time. Service was prompt and courteous. The tables are small and close together and the noise level is pretty high. Prices are a bit high but it is downtown Naples and the food was really good

We had a great last night dinner in Florida on Sunday evening before we had to go home. We both had salads - my husband had the spinach salad and I had the market bistro salad, which was delicious. My husband had chicken and I had the snapper which was delicious!

We were too full for dessert, but will definitely be coming back here the next time we return to Naples.

We have been to Bistro 821 several times in the past years, but had not been this season. We were very disappointed in our meal and felt it was not up to the standards of the past. Will probably not go back.

We were greeted by a lovely hostess who took us right to our table and seated us next to each other. This is a request that I make because I can't hear out of 1 ear and some restaurants ignore the request but not this one! It was a joy to be able to hear my spouse during dinner. The server, John was amazing, cheery and made us feel right at home. He explained the menu and specials and gave us time to think of a selection. My lobster was succulent, cooked perfectly and delicious. My husband's large steak was also cooked as requested and quite tasty. I would like to commend John, as he made our evening special.

Brandon was our server and was fabulous. My only concern is teaching your staff that if a patron says they have severe FISH allergies and asked for broccoli cheddar soup and the server bring you a cup of an alternative because there was no broccoli soup - they bring Manhattan Clam Chowder - they have not been taught the severity of that substitution. No giant means no fish.

Otherwise - Brandon did more than he had to to make up for that mistake. I was not there to teach but I kindly did. I did have my EPI pen had there been an issue.

The food was fabulous as usual - I wish there was a boneless chicken meal similar to the sole preparation. The potato/carrot whip with broccoli with a chicken piccata would have been a nice alternative.

Thank you for remaining a constant positive experience on 5th!

Sincerely
Laura Damon

We frequently go to Bistro 821. We find the service to be superb, the food served piping hot and delicious. The use of runners to deliver the food straight from the kitchen to the table is really brilliant. That practice insures that the food is served hot and its peak flavor. We last ate at Bistro 821 Tuesday, April 2, 2019. Prior to that, we ate there one week earlier. Our servers were on the ball and extremely attentive to our table and our needs. I Strongly recommend this restaurant.
