Gathered with friends for a farewell dinner and really enjoyed the Dine for Two with a free bottle of wine! Food was excellent as was our friendly waitress,
We were there for the 2 dinners and a bottle of wine special. My started off with a cocktail each that were both very good. I added a Caesar salad with anchovies with my meatloaf and my wife had the Crispy Parmesan Sole. We both loved our dinners.
We felt rushed. Not given much time between arriving and feeling the need to order. Meal arrived within 10 minutes of ordering and was obviously pre-cooked. The mashed potato was greasy and not appetizing at all. Only managed a small consumption of it. Both my meal and that of my wife’s appears to have been sat for a while and re-heated. Observed other similar entrees ( lemon sole over mashed potato) upon leaving and they appeared to have a much better composition.
This was disappointing as, in fairness in Bistro 821, our previous food experience had been good. The ‘rushed’ part we have experienced previously and is something they really need to address. A dining experience should need be affected by the restaurants goal of getting as many people in and out as soon as possible, thus enhancing their bottom line.
May try another booking when we return later in the year but if things haven’t improved it will be our last. There are many more restaurant options on 5th Avenue and other popular eating spots in Naples.
Very disappointing. Reviews were so good & it was my birthday. Boulibasse was so oily/greasy.... worst I ever had. My friend ordered the same and agreed with my description. Others said their meal was good, but none of us plan to return.
excellent this and every previous time.Best chilean sea bass I have ever eaten. the starch a
Outstanding food, drink and service. Highly recommend the lamb chops and sea bass entrees! Oh and make sure to add some risotto to your meal...
Love the food and service!!! It is always nice to visit this place!!!
The food is good. We did the promotional deal for two with a bottle of wine. The protein part of the meal is very small. It’s hard to complain about that since the price is very reasonable.
Food & service was excellent. My only complaint was the noise level - too high
I eat here often. The food is consistently delicious. I just wish it weren’t so dark in the back of the restaurant.
We arrived at 5:30 for early dining menu. The selections are very good and varied. I chose the Parmesan crusted sole and my husband chose the Asian shrimp with coconut rice. Both were outstanding. We were seated quite closely to other patrons, however it was delightful. The couple next to us were friendly and we found we had some things in common. Do not be fearful of the close proximity of other patrons. Getting back to the food, we ordered a side salad as an add on, one was more than ample and delicious for us to share. We highly recommend Bistro 821; we try to get there at least once while we are in Naples. It never disappoints , we know you will be pleased as well. Get your reservations in at least a week in advance if you are interested in the early dining menu. Two dinners and wine for 34. 95. The regular menu is also varied and very reasonable for high quality food, pleasant service and a fun atmosphere.
Service was marginal
The automatic gratuity was too much at 20% given the service
Pork chop I ordered was terrible
Birthday celebration was great.
Great staff at all levels
We are full time residents of Naples and Bistro is one of our favorite restaurants downtown. We have been coming here for 8 years now & have never been served a bad meal. Service was great as well!
Food was excellent as usual. Our server,Robert, was very friendly and attentive. We highly recommend eating here.
Very consistent, been coming here since they opened (10+ years). Has gotten a bit expensive, for what you get, but all in all, a solid spot
Far to busy and noisy service ok, table are far too close to each other
Went here for dinner after seeing an afternoon matinee at the theatre nearby. The service was excellent and we all enjoyed our food selections. This is a place you want to revisit!!
It has been a few years between our visits to Bistro 821. We had an all around great experience. Reservation was necessary. Seating & service was very prompt. I especially enjoyed the fruit & nut salad.
I love Bistro 821. Service was excellent. We love the restaurant
I’ve been to Bistro 821 several times over the past 3 years. The only thing I do not like is the bread. It is very dry and tasteless! Other than that, I love it there.
We requested outside. That was unavailable. They gave us a great table next to an open window, even better than outside. We had the best of both worlds. Servicewas unbelieveable- dinner was served very quickly. It was delicious!
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! We were seated immediately at a nice round table . Our server was friendly, efficient and timely. The beverages and bread were served within moments of our arrival; the food ordered and served soon thereafter. Everything came to the table hot and delicious! The Chilean sea bass is outstanding and just the right amount as it is served with a rich lemon butter sauce which is served over a bed of buttery mashed potatoes and green beans.
My husband upgraded the wine to a better selection - I upgraded the seabass and salad - outstanding meals all around. Can't wait to go back!
We loved the menu, service, ambiance, and above all... the food was exceptional. We loved it so much that we ate there twice during our weeklong vacation. Bill, squeezed us in and it was greatly appreciated!!!!
Having been a loyal customer since 1983, this is the 1st time I as terribly disappointed. Being on a diet, there was not much I could order from the Early Bird(I was being treated (no choice). My last resort was the mussels.I could drain off the butter. I wanted a side of vegetables. They came back swimming in butter/oil. There were only 12 mussels. I ordered a meal...not an app. My mother's fish dinner was also swimming in butter. She tried to pat dry the fish in order to eat it. She did not touch the potatoes & vegetables. When I server finally appeared, we told her of our disappointment. Her reaction was shrugged shoulders! Do not know if I will return.
P.S. Every year, we buy my sister a gift certificate for Christmas. Hmmmmm
Loved the sea bass !!!! Beautiful and delicious!
THE SERVICE WAS EXCEPTIONAL. THE FOOD WAS GOOD AND WE WOULD GO AGAIN
We had a group of 8 friends and everyone enjoyed their meal immensely. We had picky eaters, gluten-free, and steak lovers who all were happy. The wine and cocktails were delicious and our waitress was very attentive.
Bistro821 staff are terrific which only enhances the great atmosphere and good.
Very disappointing, we have eaten here in the past when it was good. This time, rude waiter, poor food.
Loved the early bird dining! It is our go to place when we have guests.
Every time we are in Naples we go for the sea bass!!!
It was Wonderful, Love this resturant
The best as always.
First time here...loved that when we checked in the gal said “I see you requested the patio”. I didn’t have to beg or anything!! We had a great table! Our server was very attentive, informed us of what they do best, and offered tastes before we chose our wine. I had the sea bass and it was fabulous. Husband had the lobster which didn’t score as well. The food comes piping hot..big plus for me. You really feel taken care of which is what it’s all about. Will definitely return and recommend to friends. Good job Bistro 821!!
Went to Bistro 821 for my son's 18th birthday. Food was excellent. I had sea bass, my son had the filet, my wife beef tips. Service was very good. We would definitely go back.
Great food. However whenever a reservation is made, they ignore table requests. This has happened to us multiple times even when a it’s special location. Frustrating to ask for a window table weeks in advance, and you end up being seated in the back, etc.
if you choose not to honor requests then say that on your reservation page.
