We have been there many times, it has never disappointed us. As our friends said last night, we like it so much because the menu is so different than any other places we go. The food, the staff, the menu all have a genuine feel to them. I love going there, and always have trouble deciding among many tempting choices. It can be very noisy in season when it is packed with happy diners!

We had Thanksgiving dinner here and it was delicious. My husband ordered the turkey dinner, and I ordered from the regular menu. It was nice to have that option. Everything was yummy.
My personal favorite was the Croquettes de Fromage. The pecan tart was buttery and filled with pecans. We had a very enjoyable time. Thank You to the hosts.

 (Naples)·Dined on November 23, 2017

This was my first time at Chez Boet, I had seen some nice reviews of this restaurant, so we decided to try dinner. The restaurant looks very nice with a comfortable waiting area adjacent to the bar, it gives you the feeling of entering some one’s home.
We were promptly seated near a window, even with every table being occupied the place was not noisy at all.
We ordered Foie Gras and Escargots bourgeon for appetizers. Both lacked the wow factor, the escargot butter did not have the flavor I know, it tasted a lot like butter with something, nothing to remember. The foie grass was blend as well and not seared enough.
Next came the Bouillabaisse with a price tag of $40.00 and the seafood tagine which costs $29.50. The Bouillabaisse came with a small lobster tale but like the appetizers the lacked flavor. Bouillabaisse should have a nice not to strong fish flavor and possibly a drop of pernod, the sauce _soup was ok but not great, while the Tagine was totally blend.
After dinner we had Napoleon and pecan pie, the pecan pie was dry and the napoleon needed more sugar.
I know it was on a busy night, the service was slow and inattentive, our waiter Steve J. left my water glass empty several times and not once came over to ask us how everything was, usually a server will ask that a few minutes after the food has been served.

I have been to Chez Boet many times. Lisa and her husband make everyone feel so welcome!
The ambience is superb and so is the food. There were 4 of us dining together...the other couple's first time there...they were very pleased. This is one of Naples' hidden gems...and in such a great location! Not to be missed!

This is a perfect neighborhood restaurant-- one for every day or for that special occasion-- for us it was our wedding anniversary. The authentic French cooking is the best in the area and there are always specials that are a delight. Most importantly the owners are friendly and welcoming-- and make you feel right at home!! Their story is beautiful-- a perfect team!

very nice atmosphere, friendly and busy.
the pate was very good. The seafood tangine was excellent as were the scallops. The lamb was disappointing as it was a small portion, only two small pieces, and didn't have much meat on the bone.
However the service was very good and we will definitely go again. I just won't have the lamb!

I cannot believe my husband and I had not tried this wonderful French gem until now! We love French food and this did not disappoint. We ordered the country pate and mussels appetizer along with a bottle of reasonably priced Chardonnay. Followed by an amazing seafood stew with an amazing cream sauce and cous cous. Hubby had Beef Bourguigon and it was rich and luscious. Creme Brûlée for dessert was so good and we vowed to start our diets on Monday! Loved the fact the owners greet you and interact with their guests.
