Attentive waiter. Food was delivered in timely manner. Portions were very good for the price you paid. A nice addition was the breadbasket with the corn muffins, brown bread along with pepper jelly which was very good. The lamb chops were excellent four double chops were cooked medium accompanied with mint jelly were were tender they were served with creamy mash potatoes that were not salty along with green beans. The veal piccata was delicious very tender not over seasoned and the peppercorn Sauce that accompanied it was very nice. The veal had fresh green beans and creamy mash potatoes that were delightful. The shrimp and escargot appetizers were delicious. This restraurant is great to impress someone or special occasion!

Had a reservation for days but we waited too long to be seated. The appetizer, mussels were not very good. Had much better ones at less expensive Restaurants. Ordered the Scallops and my date had a steak, they were both excellent. Our server Michael was great. Overall a nice dining experience

This was our third time @ The Veranda, the last two times, we had a super evening and excellent food. This past time, we were disappointed. The service was not as attentive and my main Course was luke warm; they served my wife and I had to wait for my entree. They should have taken my wife's food away and served us both at the same time. They made financial allowance but was not pleased with the overall experience considering the style of restaurant. It was also my birthday, I had informed them prior. I will go again, but will make it clear they will have to earn my trust on our next occasion.

This was my 60th Birthday dinner and it was quite enjoyable. Had been to the Veranda once before and was not disappointed the second time. All in all the food was great, service impeccable. The bar is very nice and they pour a nice drink. Piano music very romantic. Looking forward to another special occasion to visit.

We always enjoy our time at the Veranda. We drive from Sarasota and meet family from Naples as it is a good spot for both to meet. The manager always remembers us and we are treated so well by the staff and the chef presents delicious food without exception.

Never been disappointed. Food quality, service, total overall experience always fabulous. When I say "always" I am referring to my history of eating there for a little more than 35 years. The tradition of being one of the best "Southern Fine Dining" restaurants has never waivered. If you don't try it you are only cheating yourself.

We took family from out of town to experience an amazing restaurant that my wife and I have enjoyed in the past. This visit was not worthwhile and a rather let down. The main courses were bland and had zero flavor. The atmosphere is really nice and I had hoped it was just an “off night” in the kitchen. Unfortunately we not be returning.

We felt like our server wasn't as attentive as other servers were to their tables. We had called ahead and notified the staff of an allergy to garlic and it was our anniversary. Neither were recognized. It was as if I hadn't called and told them. This was our first time there and were slightly disappointed, especially for the price.

Arrived at The Veranda at 5:15pm for a 5:30pm reservation and we were seated promptly. We always enjoy the ambiance of this restaurant. Our waiter Brett, took very good care of us. We started with Escargot which was delicious as was the Chateaubriand for dinner. The Veranda is the perfect restaurant to go to if you want a special evening out.

It has the charming Florida Plantation style. There is a special history to this place and it takes you back in time to the days of Ford and Edison. The waiters wear suits and the white tablecloths make it a nice experience.

While I have been to the Veranda at least a half dozen times in the past I have to say we were disappointed in a couple things. One steak was way over cooked and had to be redone and the banana's Foster was also way over done. We love the place but used to better preparations than this!!

Meal was a little disappointing. We had this entre in Germany and that was the reason we came to have this meal and celebrate our 41st anniversary. The waiter actually tried to talk us out of this dish but we had already made our mind up. Anyway that good. Not sure we’ll be back?

Absolutely the best restaurant in Lee County. We had never been there for dinner, but now plan on making it one of our “go to” places. Friendly staff, great food and warm ambiance.
