As usual we had a great time here and the food was great as was our server. The set menu plus wine is certainly a draw and good value for the money. (With the exception of the shrimp stir fry, only 5 shrimp was disappointing unlike the meatloaf which is always amazing).

Plain ceasar with a piece of blackened salmon: $30,-
Way overpriced.

Recommended by a friend who joined us for dinner. A bit noisy at first (7:30 pm) but by the time we got Dinner it had quieted considerably as early birds left. Menu included fish, pasta and beef-enough to keep everyone happy. Service was excellent. Would recommend it without hesitation.

Sat outside. Weather was good. Can enjoy conversation and watching people and cars going by. Always enjoy the food-even the mashed potatoes were served hot instead of lukewarm like so often the case. As a group we enjoyed mussels from PEI, pork and sole. Looking forward to going back soon.

Bistro 821 is a nice place to dine on 5th. We happened to get a table outside and the decor was very nice.

The food is good but not over the top.

It can be pricey but you have to expect that if you want to eat on 5th in Naples.

This was my second time there. I would suggest getting the snapper if you like fish.

Located on popular, active 5th Avenue in Naples. Appetizers were very good, and the entrees excellent. We have the Chilean sea bass, and wagyu beef, with risotta.

The staff, from the hostess to the waitress, was top notch. Friendly & timely...everything delivered perfectly, but not rushed.

We sat by the door, so we enjoyed inside dining, while still getting fresh air and people watching. We'll be back.

This was my first use of the Open Table ap. Very easy to work.

Great place for a romantic dinner or an everyday dinner with value menu from 5-7 pm.

We visit often. Love most of the entrees on the two for $33.95 menu. Especally the parmesan encrusted fish and the pork loin. Thought I would try the Asian shrimp. Don,t bother. Not enough shrimp and they were too small. We will still go there often, just not order that again.

As always, the food was wonderful. Service was outstanding. One guest was served the wrong entree and when it arrived the noodles were over cooked. Our server gave us two spectacular desserts at no charge to make up for error. Everyone was satisfied. Highly recommend this restaurant. The noise level is loud, although front of restaurant is better.

My only negative on the food is I ordered the shrimp stir fry and there were only 5 shrimp, tbh I would have expected more, but maybe I have a bigger appetite than most 😊
