We were delighted to get a table with a view of the sunset. It was perfect. The meal was fantastic. I ordered the Dover Sole which was deboned tableside. The server did a fabulus job. Also, the veggie side was quite good.

My husband and I had a had a beautiful time here. We got a nice water view table outside and we really enjoyed the atmosphere. Our server was very sweet, but service was a little slow, and not very attentive at the beginning but she progressed by the end, so overall we had a great experience. We had seen a lot of delicious looking items on the menu and we liked the fact that they included pictures with each items. My husband had the filet mignon and tiramisu, while I had the shrimp cocktail and the lobster wedge salat and we enjoyed all of them!!! I also spotted PAULANER beer which I was trying to find in the past 17 years to show my husband. He really loved the creamy consistency and sweet taste of it. They should have this on the menu year round!!! We will definitely be back soon to try more items!!!

This is the 3rd or 4th time we have been to Bon Appetite. We go there because the food is outstanding, the service is impeccable, and we can always count on it. The view is also outstanding, right on the Gulf. I was dining with another couple. My husband had the Octoberfest special platter that was delicious combo of Schnizel, sausage and one other thing I can't remember, I had the 8 oz Lobster tail and it was delicious. We had the apple strudel for dessert. All outstanding.

What an excellent evening. We were there with out of town friends to celebrate a birthday. The restaurant was almost empty when we arrived at 5 PM for our reservation. I requested a table with a view and we were seated near the window so we could enjoy the ocean view. It was Octoberfest and several offerings were extremely good. The sampler had ham, sausage and pork and was a generous helping. Same with the wiener Schnitzel. I had baked half chicken. Everyone was well satisfied with their meals. Also we all had the French Onion soup, delicious. Alessandro was our waiter and was attentive and cordial. He has served us before. Piano player visited our table for requests and the manager dropped by to say hello and asked how we enjoyed our meals. Could not have asked for a better experience.

Being new to the area I was unaware of Bon Appetite but was pleasantly surprised at the large outdoor bar and its upscale restaurant. Menu had a wide range of options, with Lobsterfest specials that are only seasonally available. My wife and I shared a seared tuna appetizer and the lobster bisque. Thentuna was excellent, but the bisque was too far from what I consider traditional flavoring. My wife had a lobster/avocado stack that was fresh and full of lobster and I had the New Zealand lamb. The latter gives the restaurant bragging rights to seriously good lamb. Our server, Ramona, was very polished and professional in managing the cadence of the meal so we were never wanting nor rushed. Definitely going back, and taking friends and family.

It was a birthday dinner with just the two of us. My request for an indoor table by the front windows was honored. Hostess knew about the request and seated us. Caden was our waiter, was friendly and helpful. Very attentive without intruding, brought additional rolls and drinks without being called. It was a great evening. Dinner was "Lazy Man Lobster" for both of us. Shelled lobster on a bed of angel hair pasta with butter sauce and asparagus and green beans mixed in. Delicious. Only negative is they did not have Cutty Sark scotch.

One of our favorite restaurants. We went there for our anniversary. Food was mediocre at best, as were the signature cocktails. A real disappointment. We used to regularly enjoy eating here. Kinda surprised given the COVID crisis. Would've expected anything but "ordinary"....

My wife and I have dined at this restaurant a handful of times during the past two years. The ambiance is excellent, especially if you get a table right off the water; however, each time, including this one, the service has been mediocre at best. In the overview of the restaurant on Open Table, it says that meals are $30 and below. This is simply not true. The majority of the meals are over $30, and some are well over $30. My wife and I had no drinks, no desert, and we ordered a chicken dish and a half rack of lamb, and our check was over $70, including the tip. You should also know that Bon Appetite does not offer a military discount like many of the others do in Dunedin. They also do not allow any substitutions on side dishes whatsoever.

Here’s the bottom line. If you are going to charge top dollar for a meal, the service needs to be excellent and you need to offer some flexibility on side dishes, especially for dietary needs.
