KC American Bistro has become one of our favorite restaurants. The food is superb, the service excellent and the owner friendly and accommodating. We have brought several of our friends to the restaurant and will continue to do so in the future.

Celebrating a birthday dinner for eight people. Very accommodating when setting up the reservation. Excellent service throughout the dinner. Nice menu choices that was satisfying for all. Grouper and pork chop is a must try. Two had the braised short ribs and were very pleased with their choice. Glad we have a place like this in Estero. Definitely will go again.

Michael was an amazing server and made my family feel at home. The food was great and my whole family, very hard to please, were all happy. The menu is a little pricey, so this is really meant as an occasion dinner, but worth it. We'll be back when in the area.

Unfortunately I don’t think the newer mall is as busy as the naples site, hence food was not as fresh. Service was fine.

They seemed to be overwhelmed with a large party in the bar area. After waiting for our waiter to order cocktails we had an additional wait of about 10 minutes for them to arrive. The waiter then explained he thought the bartender left so he made our drinks, one of which had to be sent back. Also, before we had our drinks he returned and asked if we wanted to order dinner. This is the first bad experience we've had so we might try it again.

It must have been the chef's night off. We have been there five or six times since it opened and this was the first time it was not first rate. Lamb chops were tough, fish was over cooked and dry and scallops were just not very good. Was a very big disappointment because we have enjoyed it so much all of the other times.

Our server (Stacy) was snippy and not at all helpful - very bad attitude.

Food was not up to what we have experienced in the past (we have dined there 6 or 7 times).

Their website showed shrimp & grits as a menu choice, but it wasn’t on the actual menu. Our guest had looked on the website and knew that’s what she wanted. Nope - not getting it.

Hope everything is better next time.

We had been to KC American Bistro just last week and had an outstanding meal. So we decided to take friends there this week. Last week I ordered the Beet Salad and the Pork Chop. Both were outstanding. This week I ordered BLT salad and it was very mediocre. There were only 2 small pieces of bacon and it was swimming in dressing. The Ahi Tuna was very good but not as special as the Pork Chop. Our friend's Pork Chop was raw once he cut into the center and it had to send it back. They did bring another Pork Chop and were apologetic but the chop came after we had all finished our meal. They brought a dessert but they really should have taken the pork chop off the bill. I would go back and give them another try but let' just say, it was a disappointment.

The noise level was ridiculous, particularly for a restaurant that largely serves an older population. We waited for cocktails and did receive bread, but then waited for 45 minutes for our appetizers. When dinner finally came out, two of the four dishes were cold. We were told it was because the shoe string potatoes take a long time to make. (REALLY!) These were absolutely cold and inedible and so were returned to the kitchen. They came out 5 minutes later nice and hot. Other then that, the food was quite nice - fish moist, meat cooked to the correct level of doneness.

Every thing was fabulous for my birthday dinner- food,service,attention by owner and ambiance. This is by far the BEST restaurant in Estero! We have been here at least 6 times since they opened and just made more reservations. I am so glad they now have daily specials and some new entrees. Fabulous evening out!

The food in this restaurant is absolutely delicious. The portion size is generous and it is clear that the chef is a talented cook. The mushroom/truffle soup was superb. The ribs were delicious and plentiful. Every dish we had was different and thoroughly enjoyed. The service was a delight.

We hope this restaurant stays around a long time. We will be back.
