The only reason for 4stars , the waitress forgot the coffee ordered with the dessert, by then it was too late, at least I was not charged for it.

My wife and I were very disappointed. We have been at this restaurant many times and spent a lot of money enjoying the scenery and the excellent food. On Saturday after placing a reservation a week in advance the Hostess placed us at a table next to the bar which was very full and active and by the door going out to the outside dinning area, which means the door was opening and closing many times. When we expressed our disappointment they offered us another table not any better then the first one. We enjoy this restaurant for it's food and scenery, but hope they will improve the respect of treating their repeat customers a little better. It will be a long while before we return, if ever.

I felt that the food was oriented towards the older crowd that clearly frequents this restaurant as it was quite bland. The $14 blue cheese salad had about $0.50 worth of cheese on it, the escargot had more oil than butter and the worst of it was Steak Tartare that was more like dog food--tasteless, overly ground up mush...quite bad. My dining partner ordered the Snapper and that was nicely flavored and well portioned. Overall it was a huge disappointment. The view is wonderful, the service was very nice. Wine list will leave you wishing you had brought your own bottle. This place has been in business for a long time with the same owner and chef---I think they need a mix up because this place is STALE

The waitress was outstanding -- very knowledgeable, pleasant and responsive. The food was quite good, however, I didn't think there wasn't enough of it, relative to price. If you're looking for a good value, this probably isn't the place for you. But, if you're looking for ambiance, great service and, of course, good-tasting food-- and don't care that much about portion size -- give Bon Appetit a try.

The restaurant is good and in a perfect location. We have eaten there many times. This time we were celebrating a birthday and ordered the cake from the restaurant. What was very disappointing is that the pianist was not allowed to play "Happy Birthday". Apparently the owner did not like it which was disappointing particularly when we purchased the cake from the restaurant. They need to reconsider this.

Best Dover Sole I have ever had in a resturant. Service was attentive with being over bearing. Table by the Gulg made for a picture perfect dining setting. Bon Appétit continues to excel in all categories and continues to do all things superbly. Unquestionably one of the top five in the Tampa Bay area.

We eat here very often and everything is delicious . Make sure to get the 1943 salad, snails and the filet. My only disappointment comes from the daily soup , it is usually uninspired and or terrible. Also , they don’t offer mashed potatoes or a baked potato and that always bothers me.

Overall the view and the food is spectacular. The atmosphere is always relaxing and easy going. Occasionally some of the servers can be a little rude , potentially concerned that people in their early thirties may not be with worth their time and they would be wrong. Go for the view , stay for the piano and don’t forget the creme brûlée.

Leslie was our server and she was AMAZING! So much knowledge of the area, she grew up there. Also knew the menu very well. They have an iPad with menu items with pictures which was very helpful! The snapper was great! I finished off the meal with an after drink- they had a great menu both dinner and after dinner options. We sat outside and the view was great but also protected from the weather a bit.

Our table was ready when we arrived and right by a window.

Our waiter Alessandro was fabulous I can't say enough good things about him, he explained everything on the menu to us, he let us relax and enjoy our cocktails before ordering, when the food arrived (which was fantastic) he made sure we were taken care of all through the meal. That night it was our friends birthday and the evening was perfect. Thank you for the wonderful evening and for the exceptional food and service. We look forward to returning to your restaurant again.
