We sat outside and enjoyed the ambiance of being able to enjoy the people watching in 5th Ave and the ability to dine outside. Our waiter Rob was excellent. The early bird dinner which includes a bottle of wine is a tremendous value.

We had the combination plates, I the lobster and steak and my wife the lobster and shrimp and we both thought the food was excellent. My steak was very, very good and we both decided we would be back.

We celebrated two birthdays and the evening was perfect. Food is always delicious. Our server Mark was superb and the restaurant provided two complimentary desserts for our birthday honorees. Bistro 821 is one of our favorite restaurants in Naples.

We went to 821 and arrived at 6pm

The hostess said SHE thought our reservation was at 5:30pm and canceled our reservation.


We arrived at 6pm and were seated at 6:25 outside.

I received an email from open table stating that we never showed up.

Please fix this.

Thanks,
Barbara Berning

My husband and I took out of town friends to Bistro 821 for a celebratory dinner. The food was wonderful . The Sea Bass and the Ribeye Steak were delicious. We were seated outdoors as requested. The best part of the evening was the helpful and accommodating staff. From the host and hostess to the servers, all were exemplary.

Bistro 821 is such a friendly restaurant. Every staff person is welcoming. Our group of 6 enjoyed the parmesan sole, the pork cutlet and the creole seafood stew ....marvelous all....the servings are ample, the veggies absolutely yummy. Can't wait to return.

Bistro 821 is one of our favorite places on 5th Ave South in Naples. They have a value special for early dinners which works great when you have theatre tickets at nearby Naples Players theatre. Food is very good and service was excellent.

The three of us got the sea bass, great portion size, however, the sauce was a little too sweet this time and maybe just a little too much on the fish. I do love their sea bass but this wasn’t my favorite time having it.

This is become our favorite restaurant in all of Naples. The food is absolutely spectacular and the service is second to none. If you’re in Naples, regardless of where you’re at, it is worth the drive to bistro 821 for at least one of your meals.

I had not been to Bistro 821 in quite a while - Glad to see it still rocks! Our server, Mark, was outstanding! I was a little surprised that nobody mentioned the great deal to be had by taking advantage of the two entrée special. I wish I had known about singing up to be frequent diner too! All in all, we loved it. Kudos to Mark!

We both started with the escargot, which was excellent. For the main course I had the Bouillabaisse, which was good, but not fabulous. I forgot what my husband ordered but I know that he liked his very much.

Early wine and dine menu was excellent. Both my wife and I enjoyed our entrees and the house wine was more than decent. The only problem with the early dining this time of year is the sun. We had to keep rotating seats to avoid looking into it. Perhaps tilted umbrella’s would help but a very nice experience.

We invited a friend whose wife is recovering from a serious illness. It was the first steak he had in 7 1/2 months. It was cooked perfectly and made us all very happy.
Our server, Lauren, listened intently to his tale of woe. Her attentiveness was wonderful and made the dinner an exceptional experience. We would like to thank Bistro 821 for a most pleasurable evening.
