Great place if not a little frantic at busy times 5-7pm. Noise level was high so does take away the intimacy a little..

A quality restaurant that has been around for many years! The reason is because their food is exceptional, their service fabulous and attention to all details outstanding. Ambience couldn't be better! Highly recommended.

I highly recommend getting a table outside along the water for lunch, so relaxing! I had the special which was a steak tidbit salad with strawberries and arugala. Honestly, the steak was top quality and done perfectly!!! DELICIOUS!!! Our Hawaiian water was knowlegeable, professional and warm. It was the perfect afternoon to meet my friends. Go, enjoy!!!

When we went to eat at the restaurant adjoining the best western motel, we weren't expecting too much. But the restaurant experience was excellent. Note that your open table reservation gets you a table indoors. If you want to sit outside, its still first come first serve.

Very professional wait staff. Novel use of ipads with the waiters to show you the food selections, without coming off like an ordering portal. Food was excellent as well

Every thing is quite good, however, the \food is overpriced for what you get. I found a lesser price item in the menu and paid $20 for half chicken with a little stuffing u see it. No sides, no veggies.

We were never offered rolls and butter by our server, but we were having such a good time that we didn’t notice until we saw others being served rolls after we finished dessert. The music was way too loud, affecting our ability to converse without yelling and saying “huh?” constantly. Otherwise, dinner was AMAZING and our guests really enjoyed the evening. The mini desserts are just perfect!

Dunedin, FL location:

This was our first time here. We had a 6:30 reservation for our anniversary dinner, but still had to wait 25-30 minutes to be seated. We were a little shocked to wait that long.

We had a very friendly and attentive server. The food was also very good.

We wanted to try this restaurant for several years but just haven't managed to get there. We had an opportunity to bring a client there on a Friday night (party of 3). I made 5:30 pm dinner reservations very early on in the day. They sat us near the piano with a view that looked right into an outdoor staircase (so much for that view that we heard so much about). We requested a different table because we wanted to have the ability to talk to our client, but they said that all other tables were reserved (less than 1/2 of the restaurant was full at that time). We again asked to be seated in another room explaining that we were there for business, and they said that those tables were reserved for big parties. We sat there for over two hours, and there were no "big parties" that occupied those tables. Even our client commented on that, so we believe he was frustrated. We had to deal with the near constant piano playing (which would have been nice at a distance). What could have been a very enjoyable evening was disappointing and expensive. We ended up having coffee and dessert at a Panera so we could relax and hear one another.

I can find other places with beautiful water views. The waiter was horrible. He had an attitude that he did not have to work hard because he was there for years. The food was terrible. I had the Lobster roll that came from a can and trust me that I know the difference. My cousin had Lobster tails and wished that she could taste it and I said that I wish that I could taste mine too. My Dad had Sea Scallops that were the size of Bay scallops swimming in butter. The whole dinner was pathetic, expensive and a terrible waiter. We will not go back there.

Lovely outdoor dining on above average food. Why can’t they train the wait staff? Begging for water refills is no totally unnecessary in a decent resturant.

The food, service, and ambiance at Bon Appetit cannot be beat here in Dunedin! I tried the soup of the day and the mussels for the first time, and both were excellent. This is where we take anyone visiting Dunedin.

We reserved a table by the window to view the sunset to celebrate my mother-in-laws 90th birthday.
Upon arrival we were told that a table with a sunset / water view is only provided as available.

Croque Madam was made do the bread required a steak knife. And this has never been the case in any other restaurant. I don’t know what the ship was thinking, but it’s certainly not a dish I would ever order there again.

Overall good food at a reasonable price. We had the seafood tower Oysters , Shrimp, Stone crab all were good. The lobster was a little overcooked and lacked flavor.
