There was a patron who became ill and I was surprised at the lack of concern and assistance given to this man. The customers tended to the man but the waiters and manager did not. Very surprised at the lack of concern. The food was great our waiter was good! I would go there again if in the area. But maybe your employees should be trained in CPR/choking especially due to so many elderly in the area.

chefs salad with either chicken or salmon were both delicious. Nice view and very good service. Sitting on the outside deck is first come, first served, even with an Open Table reservation.

We were going to be seated in a narrow room but asked to be changed to the larger dining room. Request was approved and we were seated by the window overlooking the water and had a good view of the sunset. We were waited on promptly . Our server was excellent. The food was excellent. Only drawback was the noise level. The room was less than half full but the acoustics must allow for all conversation to bounce off the glass windows. It was difficult for the two of us to talk at a normal level.

We waited about 5 minutes before someone came to the hostess stand for us to be seated. After being seated we waited another 15 minutes before a waitress poured us water and took our drink order. Once we were waited on things went more smoothly. However, my burger was done medium instead of mediiun-we’ll. When I questioned the waitress she said well done is no pink, which is not my understanding of well done. The waitress was very polite, but because of the long time to be waited on, I did not tip her the usual 20%.

The view was great, sunset was awesome. Food was very good but a bit pricey. Our waiter not so good. Asked for unsweetened ice tea received raspberry ice tea. He did correct. Received dinner but no rolls had to ask for rolls. Waiter was not very attentive not many customers in restaurant.

Lunch and special was very good. But we're not happy with the refurb of the place. No tablecloths anymore.

Been away for 5 years. Restaurant decor has been updated and menu considerably changed. Still love the place, the service, and the food. As great as dinner was, eating lunch outside is just fabulous with wonderful views, air, and food. Bon Appetit remains one of our favorites in the world. No visit to Clearwater is complete or satisfactory without at least one meal at Bon Appetit., two is even better.

Absolutely pathetic! You can always hit a bad night and have a bad experience, but this was not the Bon Appetit of old.

They seated more people than they could service with the staff available. No bus staff so the waiters had to bus the tables instead of waiting on customers.

The bread girl never could find our table without us asking for bread and she never came back.

I personally ordered a 5oz. Fillet mignon cooked medium rare. Medium rare always shows pink. My rather thin slice for a filet, was serviced with no pink.

Water glasses were not refilled without asking. Empty plates were not bussed until we stacked them in the middle of the table ourselves.

We were never asked it we wanted a second drink, we were not offered coffee, we were offered desert after sitting for twenty minutes. Then there was the wait for the check.

Waiter could see no problems with his service, the manager was not much interested in the fact that he cannot supervise a dining room or my observations.

Four of the people at the table said the their food was nice but sadly served luke warm. Enjoyable? No.

Worth the money? No. There are better choices.

We were surprised by this visit to the Bon Appetit. We have been many times before and had always received great food and quality service. This time we ordered 6 oysters on the half shell , they came with only 5. Problem was corrected bu bringing another 2 oysters. My wife ordered a shrimp plate with sauce on the side. They arrived with sauce on top as well as a side. She had to remove the sauce that was on top. The fish and chips looked like they just came out of a Mrs. Paul's box. Attention to such details indicated that the priority was not on attention to detail or presentation. We may try again and chock this up to a one time issue. I am hopeful that proves to be true. Very dissatisfied. Server, however, was good.

Our server, Miguel, was very professional and attentive. Had a good command of the menu and informative about the drinks. We were never left wondering where he went, if we needed something he was there. The food was a little pricey but tasty, you are paying for the view, which is beautiful at sunset, Book in advance to get that prime slot.
