    Dwight's Bistro is our favorite spot at the Beaches for great food, wonderful ambiance, and the most amazing wait staff you will find! Dwight, his son, and our favorite, his wife Katy, and long time maitre d' Gary, along with the rest of staff make the meal and the night special every time! My wife Mari is a big fan of the tuna, my pleasures have gone from the homemade pasta dishes, which Dwight makes himself, to the Veal Piccata, to my current favorite, had it last night, a generous piece of Sea Bass, perfectly prepared. Another special dish that we have almost every time is an old Florida Palm Salad, taken from the fruit of the Cabbage Palm, grew up on it in rural western Florida, and Dwight's does it right!! Some people complain about costs, if you want to eat cheap food, prepared cheaply, the Beaches are full of them, if you want an unrushed dining experience with excellent food and service with people who care about your experience & great wines & desserts, Dwight's is The Place for You!! Whew, all this made me hungry . So make your reservations now. john McC-

    Wonderful food and service. I mentioned to our server that I was having trouble deciding between two entrees and she immediately volunteered to have smaller orders of each one plated. The piccata and sea bass were both delicious.

    Every visit to Dwight’s is a dinner to remember! The food, the wine, the service, the intimate atmosphere is exceptional! For appetizers the escargot is one of my favorites! For main dishes I am stuck on the shrimp Alfredo with extra sauce- it comes with their homemade pasta, made to order sauce and the shrimp are cooked so light and crispy - it’s so delicious! For dessert the homemade bananas foster is to die for! A must get!

    The food never disappoints at Dwights! Everything is made to order and you can tell by the freshness and quality of the food. We had Dwight's wife as our waitress and she was terrific. She left us alone to chat but popped up at the perfect time to refill our glasses or remove plates. I would recommend the crab cakes which are the best in town, the ravioli is delicious and the Bananas Foster is the best I've ever had. The vanilla ice cream tasted homemade. It's a big portion, so definitely split it with someone, but well worth the money!! I recommend this restaurant to everyone I know - go for a birthday, anniversary or just because you deserve to eat this good now and then!

    The food was great here, but it was excessively loud- we couldn't even hear the waitress. For a date night out, not a good choice- my fiance' and I gave up on conversation because we couldn't hear each other. They need to put panels on the ceiling or do something for noise abatement. We also left with our eyes burning due to smoke from the open kitchen. They also need a better ventilation system. Our waitress was great and the food was very good, but we couldn't wait to get out of there to relieve our stinging eyes and ringing ears.

    Unfortunately, our visit didn't reflect other commenter’s reviews. The noise level in the main dining room was so loud our party of 3 couldn't converse without shouting. That set the tone for the evening. The pork chop and crab cakes were very good; the ravioli sauce was poorly seasoned; the chocolate cake was run of the mill. Service, while friendly, was inattentive. Had to flag someone down for salt/pepper for raviolis, lemon for ice tea, extra silverware. No “thank you” or recognition upon leaving the restaurant. So very disappointed in the overall experience. Will not likely return
