We encountered one of the worst waiters ever to work in a restaurant. Scott made us feel completely unwelcome and believe me we will not be back. Scott provides a disservice to Bistro 821. I would never recommend this place and will take my dollars elsewhere in Naples.

Bistro 821 is our go-to restaurant. Down to earth waitstaff and hosts, excellent and consistent quality food which is fresh. They are always uber flexible on the entrees with substitutions and it's one of our first stops every time we come back.

Have lived in Naples for 2 years and hadn't tried Bistro 821 although eat on 5th St. a lot. Truly a pleasant surprise! Food and service was excellent and the prices were moderate for the 5th. St. scene. I love when a real chef is preparing the food, you can see and taste the difference. Will make it one of my regular haunts.

Another excellent meal at Bistro 821! We did not order the wine - had iced tea instead. The sole my husband ordered was outstanding! I'd go back tomorrow for the sole! I had the sea bass and felt it wasn't as good as the last time I'd been there earlier this year. Oh well...next time, the sole for me!

Bistro 821 has a really nice early dining menu; two entrees and a bottle of wine. I ate the meatloaf and my wife had the shrimp dinner. Both dinners were excellent.
The salad was also great.

Fabulous as always. It's our GO TO for consistent, delicious food. Look for the "You Pick Two" section of the menu for a chance to sample two entree's. Snapper and Sea Bass are the two most popular dishes on the menu. You can't go wrong!

We went for the early bird special, which I assume is the most popular dining for the restaurant. The food was tasty and big portions. I had the fish special with parmasen on top which was good, I substituted the mash potatoes for mushroom risotto for a $3.00 upcharge, and I hated the gravy they put on top of it. It must be the way they normally serve it.
Our son in law had the beef and I think I would recommend that. My husband ordered the shrimp and seemed content with that also.

Came with friends who had not been there before. We all enjoyed the early dining menu before going to the theater. Only recommendation is to change the bottle of wine offered. Woodbridge Chardonnay is very good and low cost. Vista Point Cab is much smoother than your Zinfandel .......Or, allow us to upgrade the bottle of wine for a reasonable fee. We will definitely be back

As locals, we dine here often. We have never been disappointed with either the food or the service. The baked Brie appetizer is outstanding. The seafood selections, especially the sea bass snapper and salmon are always fresh and perfectly prepared. One of my personal favorites is the Neapolitan Pasta, angel hair with a surprising number of shrimp, scallops, and mussels, in a light tomato concasse tomato sauce. All the staff is friendly and accommodating, especially the host, Dan. We always appreciate his warm greeting, but we are pretty sure that he treats all the guests with equal warmth.

The food was very good, portions were large.

The service was efficient without being overly friendly.

The background music provide by the piano player was very nice to add to a lovely atmosphere on the waterfront.

The restaurant was very busy when we arrived but that did not our meal.

Would definitely go there again.

Another one of our favorite restaurants in Naples

They have a great entree offering: pick 2 or 3 or 4 of their dinner entrees, and they serve them as half portions with mashed potatoes and vegetables. Great idea! We shared 3 of their signature entrees: sea bass, prawns and snapper. All were amazing

They offer something similar with their desserts.

We try to eat outside and enjoy the warm weather.

Overall very good experience.

Inside the noise level was quite high, so we asked for an outside table. Luckily it took only a minute to be seated.
Our waiter was friendly and we got quickly our bottle of wine and some bread.
After that it took 15 minutes to order...
The rest of the evening was fine with excellent fish, and unbelievable good ice cream as dessert.

Certainly value for money.
