We were in Naples for 10 days and dined at the Bistro twice. Attentive service and delicious food! We enjoy dining outside during the early dinner.

My wife and I ate at Bistro 821 for the first tine and we loved it. The food was delicious and our server was very friendly and helpful. In fact, he was one of the best servers we’ve had in a long time. He recommended some of the restaurant’s favorite dishes and he was spot on!! My wife had the lobster tail which was delicious and I tried the snapper which was amazing. Calamari appetizer was also great and is served with two different dipping sauces. Mushroom risotto was also fantastic. Highly recommend this local restaurant. Warm and friendly staff and great food!

We had a group of 6 people including 4 first-time visitors from Connecticut. Saturday night, off season 9/29/18. It was 65-75% of capacity. Our waitress was fantastic right from the start. And the drinks and menu made things seem encouraging. Sadly, for me, the same NY Strip steak was sent back 2x to be cooked. I asked for medium rare and both first and second time the same steak came back 90% raw/uncooked. I’ve had steak all over the US and expected more from this place. Waitress was very embarrassed and brought the manager over. Who, frankly, saved the night. And while I never got to eat my actual entree, it was she who saved the day for us. Kept things calm, recognized the problem and agreed with it. And with Great attitude, comped my dinner, dessert and round of drinks. Left me a little hungry but happy that everyone else had a good time. And her immediate actions on behalf of the restaurant would have me consider coming back. Maybe just not for steak. But for great service, location and festive atmosphere.

I've eaten at Bistro 821 many times and it never disappoints. The 2 dinner with a bottle of wine special is a great deal. I must say my favorite dishes are the snapper and the sea bass. I recommend making a reservation, it's always busy.

Our group of 4 had a delicious dinner on the early bird menu. I had the parmesan encrusted sole which was served with mashed potatoes and fresh veggies. Shared a berry salad which was delicious and large enough for 2 people. Definitely will return again.

Bistro it will one is our go to restaurant for special occasions, as well as when we are just looking to have a great meal. If you’re down in the 5th Avenue area, this is our top listed restaurant.

I just did not feel that this was a 4 star restaurant. The ambience is nothing special. I ordered seafood risotto and, although the seafood was cooked well, sadly the risotto was very undercooked. Quite disappointing.

This place is fabulous! My favorite pkace to dine in Naples! The food is always delicious. The prices are great and you get a nice sized portion. The staff is always very friendly accommodating. I booked our reservation online and noted that we were celebrating our anniversary. When we arrived our table was decorated with confetti hearts and they even brought out a chocolate lava cake for us after dinner because it was our anniversary. It was a nice special touch for our special day. I highly recommend Bistro 821
