We have been going to Bistro 821 a couple of times every winter vacation for 4 years, usually for the 2 for 1 before 6 Early Bird Special, 2 Dinners plus a bottle of wine for $33.95. Once again it was a great value and we split a House salad (easily big enough for 2) for an additional $5. I would highly recommend the Pork tenderloin from the 7 meal limited Special menu, large portions including potato and veggie. The evening concluded with a nice complementary desert for my special birthday lady. We will be back soon!

I UPGRADED MY MEAL TO THE SALMON ENTRE BUT WAS VERY SURPRISED HOW SMALL THE PORTION WAS .
THE HOUSE WINE IS BARLEY DRINKABLE . I WOULD BE HAPPY TO PAY A FEW DOLLARS MORE FOR A BETTER HOUSE RED.
I THINK THE SERVERS LIKE THAT IT HAS A SCREW TOP BUT THERE ARE ALSO BETTER WINES WITH A SCREW TOP.

Bistro 821 was outstanding as always! The service and food has never disappointed us. They have a great staff. They are always friendly and really take care of you. The food is the best in the area. We had the Sea Bass and The Snapper dish with the Nut and Berry salad. We would give all 3 a 10+ including there Risotto too.Those are our 4 favorites!

I highly recommend this restaurant. First time there, although I have been in Naples since many years. Food was excellent for everyone of our group of 8 people. Excellent service and a very good value for what we paid. It is a nice place to celebrate a special event.

We went for the EARLY menu. It's $34.00 which includes a bottle of wine and 2 entrees. Salads or soup are an additional $5.00. I got the pork it was very good!! We will go back as we've been there numerous times!

The service was A1. Very friendly waitress. It is noisy as tables are close together but conversation is still possible. The entrées were enjoyed by everyone (8). The key lime pie is outstanding. Paella, seafood pasta were good. A fair value for the money.

We enjoyed good food, as always at the Bistro. It was crowded and we sat outside where it wasn't so loud. The service was good. We received our food in a timely manner. One of the heaters was not working outside and it was a little cool. Overall, we had a very nice dinner visiting with our friends.

We did the early dining and our waiter did not push us to order or to finish up. We appreciated that very much. Our food arrived in a reasonable amount of time. Other places at early dining , They’re a little hasty. That can really make or break a dining experience , I think. Thanks for a nice dining experience.

This was our first time dining at the Bistro 821. We invited our son and daughter-in-law to join us for dinner. The food was outstanding, our compliments to the chef ! We had the sea bass, scallops, sirloin, calamari, and lobster. All of our meals were prepared perfectly. The wine selection was excellent; we enjoyed two bottles! Our family is looking forward to dining again at the Bistro 821 and inviting our friends to join us!

Great place to dine if you get there in time for “ special menu” where prices are affordable and selections are great . If later in the evening Bistro is overpriced for the food selection they offer.

One of my favorite restaurants! Great value at happy hour. We had a large group and everyone was very happy. My comment is that the waitress came up after we asked for our checks and asked us to leave as they needed the table for another party......it was 8:45pm, there were other tables and there did not seem to be anyone waiting. Put a damper on the experience

The food is consistently good and the service was excellent. The noise level is always high though, so conversations can be challenging. Fortunately, outdoor seating is an option, if the weather cooperates.
