    We arrived early to have a cocktail at the bar. The hostesses were very friendly. Bartender made awesome drinks and was quick to help us! Our waiter JD was very informative and helpful. On point and sharply dressed! Helpful suggestions and was very attentive. Food was amazing and the wine selection was great. We will be back for sure!

    The food, service and restaurant were all wonderful. The only thing that kept me from giving a 5 star rating for the food was that my filet was a little under done, much more like rare, instead of the medium rare I'd ordered. It wasn't enough to complain or send it back, but still a little under done. Considering the quality of the food and service, I'd say the price was fair. It was certainly less than a similar meal would cost us home in NJ. Even the bottle of wine we chose was about $10 less than I pay for the same wine at dinner in NJ. We will be returning to The Veranda on our visit to the area.

    We were very disappointed. The evening could have been dramatically improved if the waiter had been better, friendlier or more attentive but he ruined the night for us. He (Brett or Brent) couldn’t be bothered to take our order or even send more water. I don’t know if he was annoyed when we told him we had drinks in their bar before being seated at the table but he was clearly not interested in engaging with us at all. Then the appetizer (mushrooms) was flavorless and we didn’t even eat half of it. He never asked us if it was good or not. Took forever to get our salad and entrees. The best part of our visit was the scallops over orzo, absolutely delicious. When he came to clear our plates, I told him my scallops were awesome but the appetizer was not good. He took the appetizer plate away and never said Oh I’m sorry or made any reply to my comment whatsoever. Again the wait staff can make or break an experience and this one was so bad. We even tried to laugh about how we were being ignored but what a shame, we only have 4 nights here, had booked our first night at the Veranda, and wish we hadn’t.

    We had heard how wonderful the Veranda was from a number of neighbors. The dining experience was very nice, the ambiance was breathtaking, but why ask upon reservations if you’re celebrating a special occasion? We were celebrating our 25th anniversary that very day and, quite frankly, it was the biggest milestone we’d ever enjoyed together. After enjoying an exceptional table-side Caesar salad and Chateaubriand, we learned that the restaurant does not provide any type of special celebration dessert... not even a scoop of celebration ice cream. Our bill came to $180, with tip. We were disappointed. We won’t be back. We have shared our disappointment with our friends. I hope that free scoop of ice cream was worth it to the Veranda.

    The Veranda is a classic, from the homey feeling to the tuxedoed waiters. I had the salmon with herbs and honey, excellent! My husband had the red snapper and it was delicious. Would highly recommend either dish. Very nice bar also.

    The Veranda is one of our favorite restaurants. We usually visit Fort Myers every February/March and we look forward to visiting the Veranda. We love the food - the menu is great. We love the ambience- makes one feel that we are going back to an older time. The staff is wonderful. We look forward to our next visit.

    Four of us dined. Three of us were very happy with our choices. Our 4th selected crab cakes which unfortunately were not to any one's liking at the table. The filet mignon, the scallops and mixed seafood as well as the desserts were all to our liking and well appreciated. The atmosphere was very traditional and lovely. Valet parking made this easy to get in and out.

    Excellent service by John added to a perfect evening at Veranda while seated outside in the garden area. Our first ever Chateaubriand was delicious and cooked to perfection. Only hiccup was serving us tap water. Ugh, had to order a bottle of Saratoga. At these prices bottled H2O should be standard, nicht wahr?
