We enjoyed our Mother's Day brunch. We were seated a few minutes after arriving for our 11:30 reservation. We were in the middle room which was quiet until the end of our meal when a large enthusiastic group was seated next to us--after that it was hard to have our own conversation. The buffet was nicely presented with waffles, eggs Benedict, custom omelets, appetizers, carved prime rib, salmon, sides, and several desserts. The trays were replenished often and the items were delicious. The prime rib was rare and tender. The eggs on the Benedict were perfect. Our server Kevin served our mimosas promptly and kept our plates cleared. A very pleasant relaxing brunch and we will go back. The ticket was a bit surprising at $100 for brunch for two, however.

I went to the Chapel Grill for their Mother's Day brunch. I was greatly disappointed with their buffet. The food was below satisfactory and not fresh. For the price of $30 per person for the buffet... I was surprised that the Belgian waffles weren't made to order. In fact they were soggy. The seafood and muscles were dried out. I brought a group of 7 and I was embarrassed that I choose to bring them here.

Nice environment and very nice experience for a first visit. The place was empty when we arrived for our 8 pm reservation on a Friday night but it is still off season. Location could be better. Food was good, service was ok but could have been better since the place was empty. I would try again during the prime season and see how it goes.

Chapel Grill was one of our favorite finds when it first opened here in Naples. The setting was unique, the wait staff friendly and knowledgeable, and the food was excellent.

Unfortunately, I think that the owners made the mistake of sitting too long upon their laurels, depending on the word of mouth generated from their initial offering to the market to carry them on rather than investing in their staff and menu.

I'm sure the fact that they close for the summer plays no small part in the restaurant's decline, as I can't imagine how they keep their best staff when they're only open for half the year.

We've given the Chapel Grill a good three tries after mediocre experiences at each. This last experience, though not a travesty by any stretch, was likely the last time we'll be going there.

The wait staff, while earnest, were not of the caliber that is required to compete against similarly priced restaurants in the area. The food was, in a similar fashion, good, but not great, and does not live up to the price point that the establishment has chosen.

Our last dinner there was uninspired, with typical offerings found in any number of other restaurants. My food was particularly salty, right down to the horseradish sauce that accompanied my prime rib.

Again, Chapel Grill is a "good" restaurant, but in the environment of Naples, and taken alongside literally hundreds of of other offerings, there is far better out there at a far better price point. I sincerely hope the owners take note of their declining clientele and make the changes they need to bring the place back to its initial glory.

We were looking for a special good quality restaurant and while we ate at the bar in the past and it was fun - dining in the main restaurant was outstanding. Server was knowledgeable, attentive and had an appropriate sense of humor. Can't remember our server's name (but then again I can't remember a lot of things!) I believe he was from Michigan. Anyways , he was a true professional. The food was really outstanding, we had peppercorn steak, a scallop dish and grilled cod. All were very well prepared and excellent quality. While we have been to several restaurants in Naples - the Chapel Grille is now right at the top of our list. Thank you and we'll see you real soon.

Dont mistake this for a lower key, lower cost restaurant. The food is as good as any place on S. 5th Avenue, and the prices certainly matched the places on S. 5th Avenue. Our waiter was ok, but perhaps not as polished as waiters on 5th Ave or 3rd St.

Wait staff and atmosphere were great. However, for $44, I expect brunch to offer more than the typical Sheraton/Marriott type buffet breakfast or include a drink. The menu stated prime rib and lamb carving stations, but there was no prime rib offered that day. The lamb was excellent, however. The restaurant came highly recommended, but I won't return for the brunch.

It is hard to believe that this restaurant remains in business. The food is really poor...not just the menu, but the preparation and presentation is sub standard. The ambiance and decor is spoiled by cramming tables together, even though very few tables were occupied. When you can get a last minute reservation for 6 during season in Naples, one should already know that the food must be bad, as the standard in Naples is very mediocre generally. It is a shame as the location and decor are quite good...just need a chef badly.

We will not return.

I especially liked the fact that the tables were not too close together and you could actually have a conversation because the room was relatively quiet.

We are outside on the covered porch. Excellent place to enjoy the dining. Service was friendly and competent. Menu was varied and wine list featured good values. Rate this as a 'sleeper' place. Worth checking out.

Prime rib was dry and tasteless. It's the Sunday night special, but wasn't very special. Overpriced wine list doesn't help.
