KC American Bistro is consistently high quality no matter how busy it is. I think we will all go through a period of adjustment as more people are vaccinated for Covid-19 and hospitalizations go down.

My husband and I ordered the scallops dinner, salad, soup and drinks. The scallops were cold, the risotto was undercooked. We told the waitress who took my meal to the back and MICROWAVED (that’s right...MICROWAVED) the $40 meal and brought it back for me to eat. The scallops came back like rubber, the risotto was earful after being microwaved.

They should have cooked a new meal. How disappointing.

The salad was much to sweet.

This is the first time we tried the bistro.

I will be calling the manager.

My tuna was not the same quality as I generally experience in a fine restaurant. The accompaniments were so so.

The food is always delicious, and the service is top-rate. We always ask for Vele to be our server, and he never disappoints.

We just wish the University Village one would re-open, but do understand why it doesn’t.

Great choice for Valentines Day. We had the French Pinot Noir wine which was light and smooth. The kale salad was tasty with crunchy croutons. Both the diver scallops and sea bass were excellent and portions were small so easy to finish.

KC Bistro doesn't disappoint! We took old friends who just moved to the area there for dinner. They are experienced diners and were mightily impressed. The service is top notch and paired with great food, makes for a great evening.
We'll be back again and again!

It was very good, a bit more flavor from the lobster risotto, and another element added to the steamed asparagus would be great. Appreciated how I could make my dish custom.

Excellent food! Service is outstanding, and they take social distancing very seriously. The Chilean sea bass is a must, as well as the diver scallops and short ribs.

My Miso Glazed Chilean Sea Bass was excellent and so was my husband's Cracker Encrusted Black Grouper. All tables were socially distanced, waiters wore masks and hand sanitizer was offered at the table. A Naples hidden gem on Vanderbilt Beach Road.
