Bistro 821 Ratings and Reviews
We were so pleased to be able to sit outdoors on 5th Avenue at a table for 7 and at the time we requested! Our waiter was patient and helpful. The menu had something for everyone and we each loved what we had! Steaks, seafood, sides, veggies and cocktails were perfect! LOVED this experience!
We were a party of 8. The service was professional and efficient. Everyone was delighted with their meal.
The lamb, scallops and sea bass stood out.
The place was a little noisy at times and I could do without the TV at the bar, which I think detracted from the overall ambience, but all in all this was an excellent dining experience.
Valentine’s Day: as always, bistro 821 makes any location a special event. The staff is incredible as well as the eats. We have never had a bad meal. This restaurant is our go to place when we don’t want to disappoint. We bring all our friends and family here when they’re in town. If you haven’t tried bistro 821, you owe it to yourself.
The food was amazing. I had the stuffed chicken supreme which was the best I'd ever had. They were very accomodating and allowed me to switch mashed potatoes & asparagus for parmesan risotto and green beans. Both were excellent. Husband had tournadoes of wagyu beef which he highly recommends. Spinach salad was also tasty. The free bread was dense & not worth the carbs. The only slight negative was the service. I had to ask 3 different times to get butter delivered for the bread & the water glasses were not refilled in a timely fashion. These were both minor irritations in an otherwise excellent meal with friends.
We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Table was in the middle of the restaurant and I was bumped a few times when the server for the table next to us was waiting on them. Somewhat annoying. Air conditioning was very cold and all 4 at our table were uncomfortable due to that. It detracted from our dining experience. Food was very good although somewhat overpriced for the portions. Our server was friendly and attentive. Worth going to but not sure I would go back as I did not feel the meal was worth the price.
This restaurant just keeps getting better and better. The food is prepared to perfection exceeded only by the service. As expected the restaurant was filled to the walls with enthusiastic, energized hungry people, yet you received attention as if you were the only patrons there. Keep it up Bistro. We’ll be back soon.
We have wintered in Naples for 4 years. We have heard from friends that Bice has great Italian food and great service. We were very disappointed. We intentionally arrived early to check out the bar. Bartender(sorry no name) was very nice and provided great service and gave recommendations for dinner. I wish we stayed there for dinner. Unfortunately we had a reservation and 3 people joining us. It was for 6:30 so not super busy. We were seated in the outside patio which had plastic windows and heaters. I liked our table. Now is when things went downhill. We waited 20 min to get acknowledged by our server. She stopped by to tell us she would be right back. Another 10min to get in drink order. Service very slow. Once we ordered meal after another long wait we ordered wine. Another big delay. We were there for a casual dinner so we're not expecting fast food service just medium attention from a recommended restaurant. We ordered 5 meals(4 different) and no one was happy with meal. Meat sauce was bland so pasta and lasagna just so so. Chicken piccata had very little flavor and their specialty veal was dry. We skipped dessert although it looked great. Their sister Restuarant Caffe Milano has better service and food. Plus in a town that has tons of Italian cuisine you can find much better. Maybe just a bad niI seldom write reviews but Open table t. keeps sending me emails to comment.
Bistro is one of our favorites in Naples, when we have friends in town this is our restaurant of choice. This is the only restaurant in Naples we have a loyalty card with. My go to choice is the sea bass and my wife’s choice is the Waghu NY strip on the special menu. 90% of the time this is what we go with. On this evening we decided to treat good friends of ours (this was their first visit to Bistro) to a good meal on the town. Appetizers were great and 3 of the 4 meals were great. Unfortunately my wife’s usual Waghu steak was terrible and it was quite a damper on our evening. Not to get into to much detail but clearly her steak was an end cut (very easy to identify) and it was full of gristle. To matters worse my wife has been dieting for about 6 weeks so she was very much looking forward to her steak. As a result our evening was dominated by this topic, our friends are skeptical about returning to 821 and my wife left the restaurant on an empty stomach. Kudos however to our server who noticed the slightly touched plate and took the charge off our bill.
This was our second time at the restaurant. The outdoor seating is wonderful. My sea bass was delicious...the sirloin strip my husband had was a bit gristly but the taste was excellent. We were compensated by a free dessert. He should have ordered the filet. Otherwise an awesome place to dine!!
We love this restaurant. Have eaten there several times and it is always outstanding in every way. The Miso Sea Bass is fantastic as is the tuna appetizer. The outdoor seating is great for people watching and is quieter than inside. However, it is fun to sit at the bar where the bartenders are knowledgeable and very fun. This place is alway a 10-10. We have never been disappointed in any way. Can't miss place to dine.
