We wet to the restaurant at the scheduled time only to find out that they were closed due to power outage.

My entree was disappointing! I ordered the pork loin special. The pork was chewy and NOT tender as a pork loin should be. Considering the price of your entree's and everything else being ala carte, we probably wouldn't come back for another dinner.

I feel like I need to qualify the "yes" to would I recommend to a friend.
IF good food is the main objective, then yes, I'd recommend. BUT, if a nice dining experience is important to you, then I'd have to give it a maybe.
Our first impression was not very good. We were seated rather quickly but the waitress, after bringing our water, never offered or asked for our drink order. Additionally, she had a very condescending attitude that left us wondering what kind of dinner we would end up with. We ordered our dinner and waited some more to see if she'd comeback for our drink order...she didn't. We had to ask for our drinks when dinner was brought.
On the plus side, dinner was excellent. For the money...Blue Point down the walk is better.

We tried the summer $42 special for 2 and enjoyed the food very much but as expected the portions were small. The pork dish was extremely tasty. Dessert Ok but nothing special. Loved the half off bottle of wine as Meomi Pinot Noir is one of our favorites.

Been here many times and always enjoyed it. This time for lunch food was not good. Soggy fries with the hamburger, and the French Onion soup wasn't very good. Soup lukewarm and the chesse wasn't even melted.

This is the second time I have eaten at Bistro 41. The food has been quite good both times and they do have nice unique entrees and we love their truffle fries. Their entrees definitely tend to be on the pricier side and it would be good for them to be re evaluated as a $$ venue. I had a great wine and my husband the beer snob liked several of the selections on their beer menu. Our service was excellent and not over intrusive. Overall a very nice dining experience.

I enjoyed our dinner. We let our server know that we were our way to the BB Mann for a show. She was hustled and was attentive. Dinner took a little more than an hour. We ordered 4 different entrees and everyone enjoyed their meal. We enjoyed a nice bottle of wine and then headed to the show. It was great.

We looked at their menu online, only to get to the restaurant and find that the online menu was not the menu being served. The online menu prices were substantially cheaper than the actual menu prices, certain "bait and switch" tactic. Server was terrible, knew nothing about the menu for food or wine. The menu was prepared horrible, food pairings that had no business being paired together. We didn't even stay, got up and left. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone! Wound up eating at a local bistro called Mad Fresh, right around the corner.

Presentation and quality of the food was outstanding. The scallops were perfectly prepared and served over a mushroom risotto at the suggestion of the waitress vs. the cranberry risotto that was on the menu....a great recommendation! They came in individual scallop shells with an orchid accent. The people I was dining with had the port pork pot roast and special's swordfish. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food, ambience and service. We will definitely return.

Reservation was for 7 pm, but the restaurant was not at all busy so seating inside and outside was abundant. Began with a wine glass that had something 'crunchy' stuck to the inside and out. Filet was dry, over-cooked, and had an unexpected brown sauce over the top of it - - covering the burnt spots on the outside. Guest had flank steak which was excellent and pilaf which was also great. Outside music was very nice. The restaurant is over-rated, however, and prices too high for what is delivered. I would not recommend, except for perhaps a drink & appetizer.

The service was excellent in the outdoor area we dined. However, the food and ambience were below par. For starters the salads were too big and a waste of food. The waiter should have told us of their size so they could have been split. The special red snapper was dry and with little taste. Lastly, the music playing in the open mall area adjacent was so loud normal conversations at the table were challenged. We were there as an engagement dinner for our son and for the high prices ( red snapper $ 33) we would unlikely return to Bistro 41.

We tend to forget about the good restaurants "hidden" in malls. I myself hadn't been to Bistro41 in several years. We ate outdoors, were entertained by a lovely musical combo and had a wonderfully tasty meal. I had the scallops on cranberry risotto -- wow. Give it a try; you'll be glad you did.

I had a Angel Hair Veggie pasta dish that was very, very good. The Angel Hair was just "al dente" enough and the veggie's were fresh and crisp without being undercooked. The tomatoes were especially tasty and plump. I was sitting at the bar and the bartender was warm and friendly w/o getting in the way of the great conversation I was having with a new friend sitting next to me.. Bistro 41 has a good, reasonably priced wine list as well so if your in Fort Meyers and want a comfortable yet upscale dining experience, this is the place to go.

This was our first visit to Bistro 41 and it was prompted by their internet offer of a free entree on your birthday. We will go again, regardless of such an offer. The service was first rate, the artisan bread with olive oil was pleasing to both eye and palate and the asian calamari appetizer was outstanding. The entrees were good rather than great. Prices are a bit rich.
