Excellent food and service. Wine pour could be more generous for the price. Beautiful food presentation. Will go back.

The menu on Open Table is not the one in the restaurant. We were going to order the blackened red fish and the mani mahi. Neither was on the menu. Open Table menu offered a split of Prosecco for $9. They did not have a split so brought two very small bottles of Prosecco and charged $18. The food itself was quite good along with the 2 for 1.

You can not go wrong on their summer bogo deal. We've been there many times and never disappointed about their food and services. The best Grouper we've ever have and always enjoy their short ribs. We tried very hard but the warm bread just too good to not to order the refill. One of our favorite restaurant in Naples.

One of our favorite “go to’s” whether it is for a dinner of apps and wine at the bar or, to entertain guests and friends. The service is a delight; we are never rushed and always feel that we are as important as any other table. The food is unique and delicious and, the kitchen is very accommodating. I dislike most vegetables in general and substituting a side with another that is already on the menu is never a problem. Definitely worth a visit (or 2, or 3, or more).

It is really good food. It is expensive but there is a coupon in the paper for buy 1 entree get one free.
Sometimes the coupon is buy 1 entree get 1 half off. It is worth it.

KC AMERICAN Bistro is always excellent! We were there a few nights ago with friends and we all thoroughly enjoyed our delicious dinners. My favorite dish there is the pumpkin seed encrusted salmon. My friend had scallops which were yummy and her husband ordered the short ribs which he said were delish.The service is very attentive and we think the decor is lovely.

This was an outstanding dining experience. The service was flawless, the drinks were a generous pour, and the food was magnificent. The crab soufflé was just one of the best things ever. It’s served with a silver queen corn reduction which is simply amazing. In fact one of our diners had it as her starter and again as her main. My husband had the scallops and the other two diners had the mahi special. Desserts, cappuccino, everything was excellent. The chef KC even took the time to make sure we enjoyed our meal. I can’t recommend the restaurant highly enough!

In a nutshell.......the bread should of been warmer and crusty, the appetizer salad for $12 should have been AT LEAST twice a big or price cut in half, all of the 4 entrees served were just okay nothing great. No one finished their food as it wasn't as enjoyable as we remembered from last season. Even with the 1/2 off coupon we probably don't plan to return. Sorry for unsavory review!

We always enjoy going to this restaurant but their pricing of drinks and menu items keeps us from being a regular. If your going I would encourage you to use a coupon and drink something other than alcohol. I don't understand why they sell two for one entrees instead of repricing their inflated daily menu.

Always enjoy the food. However, would love to see some additions or menus changes. It’s been the same for the last two years or more? Service is not rushing you, sometimes feels like they have forgotten about you. Prices are good for the high quality food. Consistently good.

We had a reservation, and they were running a bit behind, but got us in before we even finished a drink at the bar - which had room!
It is a fairly large room, with booths around back wall/front windows. We were seated in a back booth, and although it was fairly noisy, when we were at the bar, we could have a conversation in our booth. Also booths are low back so not claustrophobic!

The food was excellent, wine list was fairly extensive and service was timely and courteous!
Food was prepared with high quality, fresh ingredients and was very tasty 😋 but fairly high priced...not out of line with other popular Naples restaurants!

Overall a 👍
