The summer special was very good. Several entrees to chose from. Wine was good. Service was excellent. Our first visit, but we will definitely return soon.

We travel to Naples a couple of times a year and have taken numerous friends every time we visit Bistro 821... this time service was not as usual nor was the quality of the food... it was my daughter’s & son-in-laws birthdays... so sad they missed out on what we have enjoyed many times before. :-(

My wife and I always enjoy dining at Bistro 21. I made reservations for us and another couple to dine last Saturday. When we arrived, the table we requested was ready and we all enjoyed a wonderful dinner and wine. Robert was our server and he was excellent.

It had been several years since our last visit to Bistro 821. The place was busy and lively; a popular spot for Neapolitans. We were seated promptly and our drink order was filled quickly. We shared an appetizer that appeared almost immediately. Our entrees soon followed. They did not appear very appetizing. Husband's steak (a generous rib eye) had accompanying sides of mashed potatoes and carrots (sort of a pinky color) and bland, steamed asparagus spears. My duck had the same boring sides. Not even a pat of butter or a grilled or roasted side. Well, we were there for the experience so we ordered a dessert. I'm not a berry fan so I ordered their key lime pie (seemed like the only dessert with no berries) but guess what? You guessed it! Berry coulis and berries surrounding perfectly good piece of key lime pie. Then came the bill. Never mind. We tipped our usual 20% because service was okay. Just a real food disappointment.

Great service only thing we didn't like is the change from your delicious mashed potatoes to the mixture of mashed carrots and potatoes. Seabass was great

This is a great place to enjoy a cocktail and/or meal with family, friends and co-workers. The atmosphere is casual but don't be afraid to dress for the occasion. You have a wide variety of food choices, so it's great for those picky eaters. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience except when it came to pay our bill. We were treating our friends to dinner but when the bill came our friends had to treat us. They DON'T take DISCOVER :-(

I love their giant chili glazed grilled prawns so I get a dinner entree of them. (4 instead of 2). The rice “cake” with them is also delicious! Angela, our server was fantastic. After dinner, she brought the “birthday girl” a luscious chocolate cake with ice cream and a candle! Again, great service, food and overall noise level and ambiance. Love this place! Thank you from all 5 of us.

We have been to Bistro 821 many times and this time was a disappointment. I ordered the Parmesan crusted snapper and a Caesar salad. The salad was huge...more than enough to share. My fish was a good size and came with carrot mashed potatoes that were good. The fish was bland as was the sauce that was poured all over the plate. It came atop a huge amount stir fired vegetables that were soggy and definitely not needed since broccoli was also on the plate. Hubby had bbq ribs and he thought it was good. The fish dish was on the early dining menu so maybe that was the reason it was not up to par.

Had a great dinner at bistro 821 recently. Service was attentive and mindful of our time constraints. The food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. I highly recommend the Kurobota pork chop. Always a pleasure to visit this gem of a restaurant out of season.
