Warm service and designer decor create a welcoming ambiance perfect for an intimate dinner or for entertaining friends. An outdoor covered terrace has views of the waterfront village of Crayton Cove.

Chez Boet is an authentic, proprietor-owned and managed gem of a French restaurant which great food, friendliest service in town and a nice atmosphere. Wine list is OK but on the value side. Ask Lisa what she has that are not on the list. She usually has 2 or 3 Bordeaux that she reserves for her oenophile customers. You won’t be disappointed!

We have been by this place several times and finally went this past Friday! Another example of why owner/operated establishments are so enduring & endearing! After 20 some years in the business, Lisa & Philippe are still excited and fully involved in their Charming restaurant! Their enthusiasm is also embued on the staff! They’re cheery, helpful & knowledgeable! Warm & cozy, good kitchen, great cocktails & super wine list! It was our “date nite” and we were not disappointed!!

We had a wonderful dinner at Chez Boet. The chicken tangine was amazing. The chicken was fresh & tender & the blend of vegetables & spices in the tangine is magical. The steak frites made with Wagyu beef was delicious, tender & cooked to the right temperature. The frites were tasty & cooked perfectly as well. The Poulet Normand (Chicken Normandy) was also outstanding. It is obvious when you first taste the dishes that they are locally sourced. Every thing has a bright, fresh taste. Lisa & Philippe's wine list perfectly complements their menu & we enjoyed a wine that went well with the poultry dishes as well as the beef. Oh, & be sure to order dessert. The Napoleon - Délicieux!!

Delicious and Authentic French bistro cuisine and feels like being in France, where we live part-time. Lisa is lovely and personable host and the servers are knowledgeable and efficient. Everything from the salads and soups to the innovative and super fresh entrees are perfection. It's also a warm and friendly place you want to return to again and again. Which we will most definitely do!

We stopped in the afternoon just to read the menu and the owner invited us in, showed us around and told the history of his restaurant. We came back for dinner and it was delicious! So was the wine. I made a meal of the lamb meatball appetizer and a salad with white truffle dressing. I highly recommend this place.

This was our first visit to Chez Boet. We were made to feel as if we were being entertained at their home. It was a slow night so nice conversation with Lisa was a joy. Excellent service and delicious food. My wife wanted profiteroles for dessert but they had none on the menu. They did, however, make an excellent substitute using some similar ingredients. Amazing.

I love Chez Boêt for the attention the owners Lisa and Philippe Boêt usually provide their guests. On this evening however I didn't "feel the love".

Although they greeted us kindly at the door - once we were seated we didn't see them the rest of the night even though Mrs. Boêt was circulating at the few other tables with guests that evening. I wondered if this had something to do with the lack of service to our table? It took a long time for the waiter to approach us; and once we had our drinks, there was a long wait before he actually took our order. What is worse, I noticed that what seemed to be the single waiter working that evening, Steve, took the order of a table of four that arrived after us. It was a bit embarrassing for me because we had guests with us who came at our recommendation.

The food, I have to say, was as usual, very good.

Just got back from a France vacation, already we were longing for some authentic French home cooking meals in Naples.
Chez Boet did not disappoint. I ordered the foie gras and rack of lamb - perfection for both. Hubby had the cheese plate and roasted duck - he just loved the sauce with his main course. We finished up with a napoleon for dessert, the layering of the pastries were to die for....so light and delicious. A wonderful meal indeed. So rare to have all my favorite items in one restaurant especially in SWFL. My all time favorite place.

We reserved our favorite table and four of us went to celebrate a milestone birthday. The waiter was very personable, knowledgeable and funny. Our drinks and dinners were all just perfect. The beef Wellington was elegant, had a great crust and was a large portion of beef, cooked to perfection. Our chocolate cake with “fireworks” for the birthday was both delicious and memorable. The pommes frites with sauce were also outstanding. We have found our favorite restaurant in Naples!

This was our first visit (full time residents with friends who are part-time residents). We shared the cheese fondue for a first course and it was delicious, with very fresh bread and veggies. Two of our party had additional entrees and were very happy with them. We completed our meal with the chocolate fondue, also very good. We look forward to returning.

My wife and I arrived in Naples and asked two friends for dinner recos. One said, “our best choice is always Chez Boet”. Wow, one of our best French restaurant experiences ever, including those we’ve done in France. Owners Lisa & Philippe are as customer service oriented as any we know. They are friendly sociable and have a passion for their restaurant. Food was simply outstanding. Foj gras, escargot & cheese fondue. Everything was simply outstanding. We paired our meal with a Chablis wine that was perfect. We’ll return every time we are in Naples. Lisa takes time to explain any and all dishes you’d like to know about. And we were wondering about chocolate fondue for dessert and she said “it’s one of our best items but after the cheese fondue, that would be too much”. That earned even more respect from us. Go to Chez Boet, it will be a great experience. We’ll be back for chocolate fondue !!

Certainly not up to the usual. “Rack of Lamb” - two small chops - if the kitchen does not have enough product, take it off the menu. Duck was also not up to par & waiter did not seem interested. Cannot blame it on busy restaurant - if so, needed to be prepared. Will be a while before we return.
