    We arrived approximately at 6:20 in hopes to being seated before our 7 pm reservation. The hostess told us we would be seated closer to our reservation time of 7 but we could go to the bar. Perfect …that was our plan…. A drink first and seated as early as possible. At approx 6:45 we watched a steady stream of couples arrive and be seated. Finally we went up a few minute before 7 and ask her when she would seat us. Rudely she answered it was just now 7 when she finally called us. I ask for the manager to let him know the hostess needed training. He was unapologetic. Determined to enjoy my birthday we ordered dinner to have the further insult of a cold appetizer. When I sent back the cold escargot..I received it back 5 minutes later microwaved. We left!!! Don’t bother they need new management.

    We have dined numerous times at Veranda. Everything was very good with one exception. My wife and I both ordered grilled fillet. I ordered medium and it was served well done. Our waiter JD noticed my steak was not medium and offered to replace it. I don’t like sending the meal back and disturbing the dining experience. I also rarely complain. To our surprise when our visit was ending, JD didn’t charge for the mistake from the kitchen with my steak. Problems occasionally happen which I understand. I applaud JD for his professionalism and attention to our meal not being perfect. This experience will not alter our excellent opinion of the Veranda. In fact, it will enhance our desire to return. We highly recommend Veranda and look forward to our next visit!

    Haven’t been here in a long time. Enjoyed going back. Veggies (broccolini and green beans) were not cooked enough. Scallops were best I’ve ever had! Yellow tail snapper was good. Baby crying at table near us at 8:30. Overall, a great experience.

    Always a lovely place to dine in downtown Ft Myers. The food is great, the service is good. We were eating on the patio. Our waiter was kind enough to escort our grandchildren inside to watch them prepare Bananas Foster, which was the first time they had ever had that. They cannot prepare Bananas Foster outside on the patio.

    We were there for dinner and as we walked in, we loved the vibe immediately. The food was delicious however I asked for my steak well done plus and it pretty much came out rare which was disappointing. They replaced my steak and it was fine the second time around. I thought the service could have been better. Despite this experience, I would still recommend this place and plan to go back again.

    For the first time in 20 years my husband had the worst Manhattan drink at the bar and then we thought it would improve at our table but didn’t. The lamb chops were good and scallops were ok. Salad and bread delicious. Pete is a great server but considering the increase in prices in menu the food was mediocre.
