A wonderful place to dine. Because of personal illness and the pandemic restrictions,
we hadn't visited in a year and a half, yet we were seated at our favorite table.

Staff was stretched because of family sickness of the owners, but our service was very good.

As usual, the food was special.

I was disappointed in Chez Boet this time. My chicken tagine was luke warm, at best, and the chicken was very dry. The onion soup was watery.....the best part was the outstanding Napoleon dessert and the Old Fashioned cocktail. The service was outstanding. I will notice that we did not complain about the food, so maybe that is our fault, but what do you say when it just isn't good?

My husband and I were very excited to have a much needed and rare date night out, and really looking forward to experiencing Chez Boet, which is nearby to our home. When we arrived at the restaurant, the person there to greet us did not have on a mask. We thought he might have forgotten he didn’t have one on or it was just a one off. He brought us our table outside— and to our dismay the tables were on top of each other. Quite literally if my husband or I even leaned back a little in our chairs we could have hit the backs of those eating next to us. We looked around and realized both inside and outside, the restaurant was clearly not trying to do anything resembling social distancing. OK, we thought. We might be OK since we were at least outside and it was a pretty windy night. As we tried to finally relax we saw one waiter and waitress after another with no mask. Our waitress came over, stood over us within inches of our faces, maskless, while filling our water glasses. We immediately made sure our masks were on, and asked, “no masks?” She said “oh don’t worry I’m vaccinated.” We quickly remarked that we, are in fact, not. And here is the real kicker, when we followed up to ask if she would be willing to put a mask on when serving us, she replied that the owners of the restaurant did not allow their employees to wear masks. Yes, I did not type that wrong. The owners DO NOT ALLOW their employees to wear masks. We quickly got up from our table and left— there was no way we could enjoy ourselves knowing that the restaurant was not taking even the smallest of precautions to keep us safe, or their employees and other diners for that matter.

FL does not have a statewide mask mandate, but Naples has a citywide mask mandate while indoors or in public spaces. The owners were in direct defiance of this order, but even more-so in the middle of a global pandemic where more than half a million Americans (and counting) have died, they showed complete disregard for human life.

Do you like French food? If yes, go to Chez Boet. It’s really that simple in Naples. Skip places named “French” or after French regions like “Provence” and go straight to Boet.

This is our second visit to Chez Boet but the first visit was over a year ago. We had a wonderful meal and an excellent bottle of wine. There was apparently some issue in the kitchen because the staff apologized for how long it took for our food to be prepared. However, since we were working on a 2018 Chateauneuf-Du-Pape Matteo (which was reasonably priced), we hardly noticed. Nice people, good food. Some people were dressy, some not so come however you wish and you will be fine. Less competitive parking than you will find in 5th Ave which is a relief. The place was hopping - I noticed the owner breaking out into a run a few times when she headed to the kitchen so they really hustle.

Apparently head chef had to leave for an emergency. The restaurant was full. There didn’t seem to be a “plan B”, no backup. Communication was poor, entree’s were significantly delayed. One fish dish was partially cooked when it arrived. Unfortunate that chef had an emergency, but communication/options should have been offered.

Chez Boet has always operated at a high standard. The food, the service and the ambiance create a synergistic dining experience. We enjoyed comfortable seating with timely attention from the wait staff . The beef bourguignon was delicious as always, especially when accompanied with one of the fine choices from the Chez Boet wine list. We will return time and again.

Went for my birthday celebration and it didn’t disappoint! A generous friend had arranged for a surprise bottle of champagne to arrive at the table and they presented it beautifully. We opted for fondue AND a main because.....it was my birthday!.....and everything far exceeded expectations. Wait staff was friendly and attentive, creating an atmosphere that invited a bit of socializing from table to table without it being intrusive. We have friends coming to town and it will definitely be in the lineup of restaurants to take them to.

What a lot of fun that evening was. The hostess was very welcoming and the waiter very attuned to our needs without being intrusive. The outside table was just what we wanted and provided a street ambience that complemented our evening. The food was unforgettable. My wife came home to realize her necklace had gone missing and I called the restaurant late to see if it had been found. The hostess showed concern and promised to follow up although it proved unnecessary since we found the necklace at home later.

Always a pleasure. consistently great food and pleasant staff. My wife had the beet salad and the duck liver and raved about both. I had the baby octopus (very interesting) and the filet of sole-superb. Had a lemon tarte for dessert. Would love them to do a tart tatin.

Great experience! Staff went above and beyond to insure every detail was covered. The food was beyond our expectations and we will be returning frequently. Plan to sign up for the trip to France when Europe opens up. Know everyone feels differently about the Covid restrictions but it was a selling point to us that no masks were required. Highly recommend this restaurant.
