When I made the order, I specified I wanted a table by the window. When my guest and I arrived, just a few minutes early, we were told that we'd have to wait 15-20 minutes for a table by the window.

Really? They knew we were coming at noon; had asked for such a window. I expect some guests came w/o reservations and asked for such a table. Why didn't they have one set aside for us?

As it is, there was a couple directly in front of us (we were placed a row behind the window seats) who sat WITH THEIR BACKS to the window. Seriously?

Other than that, it was quite nice. A bit more on the "customer service" side is needed, I think.

I was very disappointed with this restaurant. When my breakfast was served, it was strange to see that the food was placed on one side of the plate, so the other half of the plate was empty. The English muffin was as hard as a rock. The meal was bland. My husband ordered the steak medium and it came out burnt and it was hard. The two good things about this place was the tiny coffee cake they let us taste before putting our order in and the setting on the water.

We have visited several times recently. All have been good experiences but Saturday night was the best meal we've had. All in our group(4) enjoyed their meals. Food was fresh, hot and delicious. The clam chowder was especially good. Wait staff did a nice job

The table we had outside overlooking the water was beautiful, our waiter Martin did a great job, and the food was incredible. We had their tuna nachos and crab and shrimp rolls for appetizers, and sea bass for the entrees. Absolutel delicious.

Been to M Waterfront many times and this is the first time we've given it anything but Excellent ratings. What happened? Service was very slow. Our friendly but overworked waiter also had to clear tables and pour water. Note: we didn't have our water glasses refilled during dinner. We also were pressured to order salads and sides. It's one thing to suggest, but another to aggressively upsell. The $48 steak wasn't the best and the sauce was salty. The red snapper was excellent, though. Not an enjoyable experience.

Took parents out for a nice dinner. Had reserved outdoor table but were seated in breezeway by door, not along water. Ok, but under a speaker which made conversation hard, and hardly a view. We were hungry so decided to just go with it.

The baked camembert with apricot appetizer was outstanding. We then waited a longer time than I would have expected for our entrees but they did pass amuse bouches to the tables, along with bread.

The Red Snapper catch of the day was done superbly. The side fingerling potatoes however tasted "old" as if made long ago and held over. Plus they were too hard, so difficult to even eat. Strike for the sides. The Scottish Salmon was fine, but the accompanying artichokes were soaked in vinaigrette and tough. Not at all good. Again, strike for the sides--what is going on? Our poor parents were so excited to get the special of the day which was Halibut. The thick steaks of fish were tough, chewy and overcooked. But because it took so long to get the food and they were starving, they would not let them be redone while we ate. Their sides were essentially a bed of spaghetti. Wow. Overpriced much?

No one was in the mood to even try a dessert. We just wanted to get out of there. Lost about $300 on that dinner and have no interest in gambling on M Waterfront again. There are too many outstanding restaurants in Naples--why would we ever try again. Hard NO.

Our food was good except my wife’s vegetable was a little overdone. She had the snapper and I had the veal and shrimp dinner, both very good. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. We celebrated my wife’s birthday and were treated to a nice dessert. We had a booth that was in a high traffic area, next time we’d request a window seat but that’s on us. Enjoyable night out.

We took our out-of-town guests to eat dinner in the Terrace room overlooking Venetian Bay at sunset. We were celebrating a special occasion, so it was nice to get dressed up and enjoy the beautiful view on the water. While the prices are high, the food is delicious, and the service outstanding, well worth it. Chef sent out a complimentary appetizer to taste, as well as delicious after dinner truffles, a nice surprise. M Waterfront Grille is such a special place and being able to walk around the shops after dinner is always a treat.

Two birthdays, dined outdoors overlooking the bay, couldn’t have been nicer. Lobster salad is the best I’ve ever had. Also received two nice birthday servings of key lime pie with a candle. Staff did a great job of making us feel special.

The tables in the back area near the sever station should be eliminated or only seat 2 people. Its loud , distracting with staff constantly using the area for the entire back area.
We have been going to M for a long time and this experience was particularly troublesome.
On top of that the server( who was experienced and capable) seemed determine to move us in & out at a pace that would have been 45 min if we didn’t deliberately slow down the process.

Unfortunately was disappointed. Visiting Naples and wanted a special date night dinner. This place had awesome reviews. Ambiance was a bit stale and outdated even though you’re on the water, staff was hard to reach/ got our app before the bread and drinks. Menu was limited to pretty much steak or fish. Cocktail came out in the same glass as the water and I thought it was water at first until I tasted it. Overall felt like an overpriced steakhouse, not worth it if you’re visiting Naples for a short time.

We were unlucky to have a baby in the dining room who yelled a bit. Restaurant can’t be blamed.
But it took a LONG time to get the check.
Loved the shrimp spring rolls.
