They’re known for their sea bass and snapper. I ordered the combo plate which included both and was not disappointed. The food and service was outstanding including the escargot which we ordered as an app. I would recommend anyone to go here for any occasion. The only negative is that it was pretty loud.

We returned to this restaurant for the second time while visiting Naples. It was wonderful--good food and atmosphere and worth the 10-minute wait despite our reservation. We would return for delicious seafood!

The risotto was about the best we have ever had. Other items on the menu were a bit overpriced, but the wine list was reasonable and we would go back for the risotto any time. Convenient location on 5th Avenue close to the parking garage. We and our guests were very happy. We were seated on time per our reservation on a busy Friday night

Our waiter was excellent . We’re a table of eight. A larger very very loud group in back of the restaurant over took conversation in restaurant for everyone. We couldn’t hear are self talking. Just the big biggest loudest big mouth. Our waiter gave us a complimentary dessert for putting up with the rudeness. That was very nice. Thank you for that.

The food was a bit disappointing. My snapper’s preparation was much too sweet. My husband’s risotto was just ok. The service was good and we may try again, hoping this was just an off night.

One of our favorite places in Naples. It is always great and the food is superb. Pick any item on the menu and you will be more than satisfied if not over the top. Best Rib Eye Steak and Sea Bass any where in Naples. The wait staff is very good, attentive, and very knowledgeable about the menu and the preparation. Thank always for a great meal...every time!

Bistro 821 consistently surpasses our expectations with respect to food quality and service. A special acknowledgment to the kitchen team who works exceptionally hard yet manages to give a passing smile when customers walk past. Year after year, we are impressed by the warmth of the Bistro 821 (management, service staff and kitchen personnel). Thank you for memorable moments at your establishment.

I gave Bistro 821 a rating of Good. Mainly because the choices on the Early Menu was lacking. Last year when we dined I had the Meat Loaf which was very good. Another problem we had was we made a reservation and then received an e-mail from Open Table that we didn't show up. We called the restaurant back and informed them we were just there. The restaurant acknowledged it was their mistake. Finally, the price of the Early Menu was raised $12.00 from the year before.

Small plates, prawns and crispy tuna sushi roll, were both excellent. The warm, crusty bread was amazing! My wife had the miso sea bass. She loved it! Unfortunately, my meal, “shake and bake” pork chop wasn’t great. Pork chop was cooked properly but lacked the right level of seasoning. I was really looking forward to the mushroom risotto which accompanied the pork chop but it was well undercooked. Not edible at all. The service was great and I really wanted to love the place. I’ll probably give it a second try and...
