We have family in from Paris and enjoyed lunch inside. The food quality and presentation was excellent.
Thank you for taking such good care of us. I highly recommend Bon Appetit for upscaled dining.

It was a very noisy dining experience. The food was mediocre at best, especially for the price. Our server was very good, though sometimes a little slow in returning after telling us he’d “be right back”.

I was very disappointed upon arrival when they sat us in the very narrow part with little to no view as I asked for a table with a view. When I advised the hostess she said they were too busy to change tables! I had said it was a Birthday when I made the reservation and they did nothing to acknowledge this. This was a special time for my girlfriend who is alone now as she lost her husband so I wanted to make it special but did not find it was very special.

The server was good. The food was just ok but I think it was what I ordered so not the restaurants fault. Was not worth the money.

Fish was dry and over cooked. Lamb chops were real gamey. Service was sub par for that type of restaurant. Very disappointed overall. The appetizers were very good though.

We have been to Bon Appetit twice before, in 2014. Travelling back to this area dinner here was a must and they didn’t disappoint- everything was perfect as we expected. We were here March 17 so they had a dinner special of corned beef and cabbage - it was so good and went well with the Pinot Noir. Looking forward to visiting again next trip down.

2nd time we’ve been here after we were gifted a giftcard. The service both times was crap. I don’t understand why they hire servers where English is a 2nd language for them. Is it a hip thing to try and make you feel like your in another country? The food definitely couldn’t be mistaken for that. Their accents are so thick, I had to ask our server several times to repeat himself. It was our anniversary and I requested a larger table as they sat us at one roughly 2ftx2ft and up against the wall, the first time we dined there, and they stuck us in a half booth small top. My wife ordered a dirty martini and he asked if she wanted 6 or 9oz. Weird right? Well he came with a glass of wine.. we ordered the seafood tower for two, the only good thing was the oysters and shrimp. The stone crab and lobster were tasteless and the cocktail and the mayo sauces served along with it were bland. After that we ordered french onion soup and steak tartare. The soup was great but the tartare was bland and boring as well. Spent $200 all said and done, and it definitely wasn’t worth it. Would of been better off buying a hotdog and sitting on the pier for the view.

It was our first time dining there and upon walking in I was very pleased. We were greeted warmly with friendly faces and then lead to the best seat in the house, the corner, where we were able to look out at the water all around plus the pier. Our server, Alessandro, was amazing! He was a joy to talk to and was professional and personable. My family and I enjoyed the ambiance, the food and the excellent service. It was a little bit loud with other tables around celebrating all kinds of occasions so we had to talk a little louder or lean in a little closer to be heard. Besides that our evening was nothing short of EXQUISITE! Will be back soon!

This was the 1st time dining here. We came for a birthday celebration and the food and view were amazing. I was a little peeved w/our waiter (Shar/Sher) as he initially came across very stuffy and pushy. Although he was making recommendations, the manner in which he made them made us feel like we should only be listening to his advice, versus respecting our choices (even if they differed from what he recommended). As the evening progressed he seemed to relax and pick up that we had our own opinions, but the first half of our dinner was slightly tense because of his pushy attitude. Overall, we had a nice time, but it was a bit disappointing to start off our celebration dinner like this.

Seated timely and in a wonderful window seat overlooking the bay. Service was excellent- allowed for dining without rushing. Wine selections were reasonable and the appetizers - oysters were super fresh and gulf shrimp sweet. Mains of grouper and snapper were perfectly prepared and presented. Key lime pie was good but not exceptional but we enjoyed the quiet end of meal as the restaurant grew quieter as the evening wore on. Great food and place to enjoy it!

We love this restaurant. I would have given it a higher rating if the menu had a bigger selection. This is probably not the place you want to go if you have picky eaters. My husband and I order the same dish every time we go, but usually try a new “appetizer/small plate” just to give a go at trying to expand our limited palate. 90 percent of the time, we don’t like the new choice choice. But again, as picky eaters it doesn’t mean that someone else won’t find it delicious. You can’t beat the water views, and if you go for sunset you are in for a treat. They also sometimes have live music outside! Just yummy!

Bon Appetit is a truly enjoyable dining experience, from its location on the water at the end of the Dunedin (FL) Pier, to the excellent service, to the delicious food. For views of the sunset over the Intracoastal Waterway along the Gulf of Mexico it is unparalleled!

A fairly stately, slightly old fashioned favorite with famous sunsets and intracoastal views- the menu is what you would expect, service is attentive, ambience is more refined inside with white table cloth; more Matgaritaville on the porch.
Reserve for indoor dining - serve as you come on the outside porch; good if slightly older bar scene.

I come to Florida once a year and always plan an evening at this restaurant. It never fails. The atmosphere is wonderful and the sunsets are gorgeous. The food is very good although a little over priced. The service was great.
