What a nice experience. We walked in with our 5 and 8 year olds in tow and they didn’t even bat an eyelid. With a children’s menu and a fantastic menu deal for us with a lovely bottle of red, what could be better? Our server Mark was excellent, bread and refills were plentiful and a surprise slice of their flourless chocolate cake for my husband’s birthday (I hadn’t even asked for!) was all icing on the cake. Thank you Bistro 821, we will be back in the winter!

Overall we enjoyed the restaurant. It is in a great location and the streets were lively after 10pm.
The food was great. A small Bistro salad was plenty to share between 2. The salmon was perfectly done and the goat cheese cake was terrific. The Neapolitan was very flavorful but the sauce was a bit thin. Adding parmesan made it thicker. Not a big deal.
It was hard to get our waiter's attention at first. How hard is it to glance at your tables?
The wines by bottle prices could be lower. Our standard KJ chardonnay was $40. We get it at Total Wine for $11. I suggest lowering the price to $30 and selling more.
We would go back again and recommend it.

Pre-theater dinner at 5:30. Never rushed; no courses backed up into one another. Goat cheese salad was disappointing; alligator quesadilla interesting. Snapper was excellent as was the pick 2 dishes selected by my son and husband (both with wagyu sirloin + sea bass for my son and snapper for the hubby - very good). Son's girlfriend had the seafood risotto - loaded with great seafood and a very nice portion. Had a very reasonable bottle of Pinot Noir for $40 and desserts were tasty too - key lime brûlée (interesting and good but doesn't need the berries and whipped cream on top) and the Creme brûlée (same comment re berries and whipped cream). Highly recommend this restaurant. Our Server Rob was top notch; a real professional.

The restaurant offers a summer special to get people in the door because this is such a seasonal community. The restaurant was crowded and noisy. I think in part to a play at the local theater nearby. That is why we were there. Eight of us. For specials like this the food is not the best, just average and in quantity to feed the crowds. I don't think I would go back for the deal or on a regular evening.

My husband and I were staying in Naples, Florida, and enjoyed a truly amazing dining experience. We arrived early and headed to the bar for a drink while our table by the window was prepared. The bartender offered immediately that it was Happy Hour. We indulged in a refreshing glass of wine which he recommended and delicious crab dip. Our window table was a treat and we were able to people watch as we dined. My husband devoured his tenderloin tips with gorgonzola and my salad was one of the best I have ever eaten. Bistro 821 was a hit and we will definitely dine there again on a return visit to Naples.

I was disappointed in size of the portions. We went for summer special menu, two dinners and a bottle of wine. The bottle of wine we got sells at Wal-Mart for $5.00. My baby back ribs were not as good as those at a local chain. The salad was greens with a piece of tomato and a little onion. The bread was very good, warm, fresh and crusty. Service was attentive. Just disappointed in the food for the price. Bill for two was $75 with tip. A lot for a “special”.

I went to Bistro 821 to try their special deal menu. I ordered the Pork Loin Cutlet for dinner which was outstanding. Since I ordered off the special menu, I was pleasantly surprise how large the portions that I was served for my meal. The presentation of food was terrific. Hands down, one the best meals that I ever had in Naples, FL. The service was on point and our server was extremely informative and friendly. She was the one who recommended my meal. Overall, it was an amazing experience. I can't wait to go back!
