We were looking forward to dinner at the Blue Windows recently as it has just reopened for the season. We were hoping finally for a fine dining experience in SW Florida. We are from the Northeast, in particular, the New York metropolitan area and have dined in some of the best restaurants. Unfortunately, Blue Windows does not meet those standards.... More

The cassoulet was just as good as the cassoulet we had in Paris! The duck has just a slight crisp skin, the beans were cooked to a perfect consistency, and the portion size was large! My husband also had the cassoulet and even he did not finish it all, we took it home and had it the next night for... More

Dined at Blue Windows Bistro tonight after they have been closed for the summer. The chef definitely still knows how to prepare delicious food. Glad to see Marlene providing excellent service again this season. Happy to see some new items on the menu. The sea bass flambeed table side in Pernod was outstanding as was my husband's salmon prepared in... More

Went to Blue Windows Bistro on Friday night with friends. The location in an unlikely strip mall, had us wondering, but we found it absolutely charming with excellent French fare. It is a small place with only about a dozen or so tables and it was filled, so be sure to have reservations. Not only was the food excellent, but... More

I loved the food, personable staff, comfortable seating. Excellent wine/champagne lists, menu items. The true flavours of the food without being overly seasoned/salted. It was opening night of the season while we were there. While it was quite busy, our waitress never forgot to check on us. Very personable and attentive.

Small, charming. Attentive staff, personable and eager to make your dining experience perfect. The food is wonderful! Excellent portions, perfectly seasoned...(not overly salted).:-) The true flavours came out of the dishes that were prepared. The seating is comfortable. We are really impressed with this establishment and will return for a third trip.

It's my opinion, and those of my guests, but between the terrible service and fair food, we won't try this one again. Prices were high, and food was under-seasoned. After being seated, we we waited almost a half hour before anyone even came over with water. After talking to the hostess, we finally ordered drinks...another 20 minutes! If it wasn't... More

Dined with new acquaintances who have been to Blue Windows a few times already and recommended it. The food was delicious -- nouveau French mostly -- and reasonably priced. It's a small place and closes for part of the summer, so call for reservations. Service, too, was friendly, efficient, and unobtrusive. If you're looking for French in Ft. Myers, you... More

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
