Made the mistake of going here for a prix-fixe 2013 Christmas Eve dinner with my wife. Seated by owner/wife wearing 1970's dress and hair borrowed from Florence Henderson's Brady Bunch. Dinner was highly overpriced at $60 per person. Cramped and overcrowded 10 table restaurant. Food was mediocre. Mousse de foie gras was too sweet; 6 leaves of salad barely contained... More

Traditional provincial . Lovely French wines, too. Cheese plate very good, not the usual and nice portions. Salad comes with all entrees, unusual these days. I had fish of the day, trout with beurre blanc, couldn't have been better. The accompaniment of asparagus and potato were perfect, too. My companions had bouillabaisse , all liked it, but a few said... More

We tried a great new wine, a smooth, hearty delecious red, and the service is exceptional as well....We were in Europe a few months ago and a gentleman asked where we are from,... More

Wonder husband & wife duo who are elevating the restaurant experience in Fort Myers. It is an exciting place for two. Be sure to make a reservation and check out the pastry shop next door.

My husband and I both had the Voul au Vent (lobster, shrimp and scallops in puff pastry and a sauce. It was delicious. The other couple - one had steak which was prepared appropriately the other had the veal piccata, prepared so that she could eat it (restricted from greens, spices). She thoroughly enjoyed it. We will go back. Usually,... More

My husband and I dined at Blue Windows and were very disappointed. He ordered a steak medium but his came out well done. No one was in disagreement, including the owner, that it was way over cooked. He had to wait over 30 minutes to get a new one and by that time my dinner was long gone. The restaurant... More

It had been a while since we were at Blue Windows so... It was as good a food experience as it gets. The fish is fresh with different sauces. Just a delight. Although the restaurant feels more like a small country bistro, the service is personal and friendly, as if they knew you for a long time. I'm from NYC... More

Stopped in for light meal of an appetizer and was so disappointed to find that I couldn't order the "Boudin" unless I ordered it with the large salad that came with an entree.So I decided to try the Shrimp Provencial ....6 small chewy microwaved shrimp on plate with a flavorless tomato sauce. $12 ..blah...real disappointment. My dinner companion had the... More
