My fiancée the salmon and I had the duck. Both dishes were presented well and accompanied by great bread. The food was well seasoned and we both enjoyed the dishes. We dined on the patio with our small pups. This was the best restaurant we found on the 5th street corridor.

We have dined at Bistro 821 three times now, and each time has been a very satisfying funding experience. The service was equally excellent as the food, being timely and courteous. The early hour specials that include a bottle of wine, and some flexability in the early menu selection, are great. As an aside, the salad was much better than... More

The Bistro was crowded with a lot of people standing around, talking loudly, blocking access, and some complaining. The atmosphere was dreadful. Food in general was tasty but did not quite reach expectation in presentation or taste. Chicken bits were not trimmed properly. Waiters seemed a bit rushed and inexperienced. Twist of lemon was missing from the order of water.

This was our second visit to Bistro 821. Both times we had a wonderful dinner. The service was very good too. I gave it 4 stars because it is very crowded. People were walking through the restaurant and streaming behind my chair constantly bumping into me. If I had a better seat, I would have given it 5 stars.

My husband and I have been going to Bistro 821 for at least 15 years. However the restaurant scene in Naples has exploded in the past few years and Bistro 821 needs to evolve. We dined with friends recently, not at early bird time. We requested outdoor, but they could not accommodate us. Eating inside is crowded and noisey. Our... More

Bistro 821 has hosted our alumni event during the very busy St. Patricks Day parade in Naples for the past several years. These folks are top notch. Friendly with a smile service and prompt service for a group of 100 people. We had a limited menu, but what do you need besides corn beef and cabbage on St. Patty's Day.... More

Often, during Season, restaurants become so busy and overwhelmed that the food and service suffers. Not here! Our service and food were superb! We were a party of 8 there for my husbands birthday - everyone was very pleased with their meals. Bonus: Since we were there early we enjoyed the early dining prices of $33.95 for two meals and...

$70 for two meals plus a bottle of wine is outstanding value at this chic restaurant's early bird menu. Delicious food coupled with professional service, no need to say any more. Not surprisingly, the restaurant was very busy, so be sure to book early! Thoroughly recommended.
