Mad Fresh is literally the freshest, most delicious and my new favorite restaurant in Fort Myers. This restaurant serves up great food that belongs in a metropolis like New York City, trust me I lived there for 4 years. The food is outstanding and crafted by a skilled staff. Only minus is seating is limited, but this creates an intimate... More

Met a friend here for lunch and though the menu was limited there was still a wide variety of choices. Aps, Salads, Burgers, Sandwiches and Flat Bread. I opted for the Poached Pear and Beet over Spinach Leaves Salad. It was a hearty portion and very delicious. My friend had the open faced steak sandwich with fries. I guess because... More

Went for the first time w a friend. Good service. Ordered Mediterranean flatbread. Thought we were getting a sandwich but rather we received a huge thin crust pizza. Ingredient quality really good and fresh however only issue was way too greasy. Will return to try more options. Cute atmosphere. It was busy which is always a good sign.

Delicious and outstanding food. No atmosphere but that's part of the fun because all the experience is about the food. You'll be surprised at how gourmet the food is, atmosphere is misleading. Have been there many times and I still can't wait to go back.

Great find! Small gem of a restaurant. Food is great and varied. The specials and burgers are a must. There is a small party room in back which is charming.

Thie food here is amazing and some of the best in Fort Myers. We dine here about once a month. The have some good flatbreads and salads and you won't be disappointed by the specials. The Specials are written on a large chalkboard on the wall and easy to see when you walk in the door. There are a few... More

We stopped in after reading the reviews. We were greeted warmly and offer drinks and the specials. The owner is a great host and made some great recommendations. We had the Provençale flatbread, Classique flatbread, Quinoa salad, Parisian Burger and the Bleu burger. Everything was cooked to perfection and served with elegance. The portions were huge! One person ordered the... More

I had dinner at Mad Fresh Bistro last night and I can't wait to visit again. I understand other's reviewers regarding the atmosphere but the food more than made up for the very casual environment. This is the best food we have enjoyed in Fort Myers. I had the duck which was prepared perfectly and my friends shared the burger... More

Went there for lunch and was very impressed with the menu, inventive and not the usual. Kudos to the chef. The interior is underwhelming. While this was ok for lunch, there are only a few tables and no atmosphere. Our food deserved a better venue and we hope they get a place the fits their quality. I must mention the... More

Best burger I've ever had. The Sconnie Burger leaves nothing to be desired. Bacon jam, aioli, cheddar, cooked perfectly to medium rare without even asking. Definitely recommend.
