The Veranda-Ft Myers
We were celebrating our 33 rd anniversary . Michael was fabulous and the food and presentation 5 star . A wonderful restaurant and a memorable experience
Excellent food and service in an environment that was pleasant. Will go back if in Ft. Myers.
Still very good, but sadly nearly empty by 8.30pm on a Saturday night. Food excellent as always; service very traditional.
Pete is amazing ..the food is awesome! Dont miss this gem in ft myers!
Best prime rib I have ever had. Quiet, elegant atmosphere perfect for conversation.
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
Wonderful first experience. Will be back for sure
Top service. Chateaubriand was awesome. Nice place for special meal as it was Mrs.O's birthday.
Winston is the best! A great atmosphere, quiet and they are very attentive to your needs.
The Veranda is our "go to" downtown Ft Myers FL restaurant for upscale food & service.
Our service was less than expected. We have been there before and had a better experience.
outstanding restaurant. We move in since 1999. superb food and service. best of all is Server Pete
Very nice, romantic and great food.
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.
Amazing food, cocktails and service! Will be back again!
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.
First time there and loved everything! J.D. our waiter was awesome!
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.
Great old school atmosphere. Definitely a restaurant you go to celebrate a special occasion as it’s pricey. You are paying for an experience you won’t regret!
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.
Great place for dinner and drinks, friendly staff.
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.
The atmosphere is great...located in an old refurbished house in the middle of a city. Food and service was top notch and the prices matched. Wonderful special place to go for a perfect meal!
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.
A wonderful escape from the heat and hustle of a summer in Fort Myers; not croweded and just a delightful dining experience with near personal service.
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.
When we made our reservations and again at the restaurant we informed you that we were celebrating two birthdays and yet nothing was done by the restaurant to acknowledge this, that was dissapointing. In the past when a special occasion was known by the veranda they would take a photo or give a free dessert to the person celebrating.
Wonderful birthday celebration!!
The valet parking is very convenient. The people are very friendly and come along professionell. The meals are truely outstanding. We had „Surf and Turf“ -It was delicious. Taking in account that it is an American Restaurant even the service can be rated as good. All in all recommended.
Had a wonderful evening to celebrate our wedding anniversary
Everything was wonderful We were celebrating with friends and it was a great night
JD was our server and he was great. We loved our table and the food was above expectations.
It was my mother’s birthday and the Veranda was the perfect place to celebrate her special day!
Salmon was very dry. Not tasteful. Not worth the money.
The place is beautiful but really crowded. I can reach another table with my stretched arm, and I can hear every word from another table which makes impossible to keep private conversation.
During reservation I requested a little cake with the candle as a little surprise for my daughter who turned 16. It was ignored.
Food was delicious as usually. Service is pleasant. However I wish I did not feel like I am sitting at the table with strangers due to the crowdedness of place.
Excellent dining experience....as usual....We always look forward to our visit
