We ordered Filet Medium. We both received well done. Sent them back. We received next filet they were rare. Sent them back. Brought to table a third time as ordered.
Disappointed with food as you can see. Our waiter was on the ball. Very nice. They gave us a gift cert for a bottle of house champagne and gave us a dessert tray of petite cakes to try to compensate. Dessert was supposed to be included in our 3 course dinner anyhow.
The outside bar was nice for cocktail hour. The view beautiful.
I would go again to give them a second try.

We were arrived on time was provided a round time for our group. I asked for the waiter Alessandro and he attended to us. The food was fabulous, the lamb chops were so good, schnitzel was very tender,etc. everybody enjoyed their food. Alessandro was very attentive and funny as always. We enjoyed having Alessandro as our waiter. Definitely we will be going back.

Went to Bon Appetit for the Octoberfest menu and after seeing the two tables next to us send their meals back twice, decided to order from their regular menu.
The fare was just OK tonight. Totally disappointed. Have been there for Christmas & Easter & many other times but after tonight not sure if we’ll go back. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!

We enjoyed our 62nd anniversary dinner with good service from Bill and excellent food. We did miss the bread server with the varieties of bread which we always enjoyed replaced by one very small roll with no offers for another.
Our sever presented a tray of mini desserts and offered them to us without mentioning their cost. We thought they might have been anniversary treats, instead they were $3 items on our bill.
We expect to return to Bon Appetit again but miss some of the old favorites. We have been customers since 1986.

We're delighted we found your restaurant. The reason I didn't give the food 5 stars was my Dover Sole was partially overcooked. My lobster cocktail was delicious. Everything else was very nice and the waitress was especially good. We defiantly will be back!

We got the window table I requested and our friends loved it. Michael our waiter was top notch; going over the menu, answering questions, etc. Courses were spaced perfectly so we had time to chat and relish the delicious food.

I really enjoy going to Bon Appetit both for the location and the high quality of the food. Being a single lady...when I do get date for dinner I almost always choose to go here. I feel safe and like the parking help. Also can get a reservation easily, I used to call but the last time I used my computer and it was easy. Thank you for your nice clean restrooms as well! Sometimes I have to wait in line to use the restroom so I wish there were more.

Had dinner with friends. Cordial and warm greeting by the hostess. Did not have to wait for our reservations. Spectacular view (as always!). Our waiter was wonderful. The food was great. Could not have asked for more, but, we got more—with a gorgeous sunset as we dined and talked. What a perfect gem this place is!

While vacationing in nearby Clearwater Beach, we decided to try one of the many restaurants in Dunedin. We heard that Bon Appetit was good so we made a reservation. We were not disappointed. Delicious entrees and impeccable service. The view of the water was lovely as well. We will be back.

Bon Appetit is one of our go to restaurants when we go on our annual vacation to the Dunedin/Palm Harbor area. In celebration of our 35th wedding anniversary, my husband booked our reservation 3 to 4 weeks in advance, through Open Table. At that time he had put in the request/special notes, that this was for our anniversary and that we wanted a table inside where we could view the sunset. Our reservation was for 6:30 pm. When we arrived, the hostess promptly brought us to a table, in the corner, where viewing the sunset would be completely impossible. We brought this to her attention, but kept getting the same response "we don't reserve particular tables, this is what is available". My husband quickly went to the outside dining area, where he was able to secure a table for us. The outside dining staff turned around what could have been us leaving entirely. Outside staff was attentive and friendly. We were extremely disappointed with how we were treated on the inside dining room of this establishment. If our initial request, through OpenTable, could not be accommodated, Bon Appetit needs to make OpenTable aware of that, along with having that stated in the description of the restaurant. It really is a shame that one of our favorite restaurants could not accommodate for a special life event.

Beautiful view of the sunset over the gulf. There are 2 bars, one is outside where you can breath fresh air (no smoking) and enjoy the view. You can have an app, or an entire dinner there too. We have lunch at this bar sometimes. There's a bar in the restaurant too, and a piano player when we've been there.
The atmosphere is upscale, many well dressed seniors, but younger couples too. Quiet and sophisticated.

Food was hit or miss with our party. Service was on top of our drinks. Waiter was very nice. They can do without the iPad presentation of the menu. Good for once meal wouldn't be overly inclined to return.
