This will not be a cheap meal because it is more than a meal. It is the entire experience. You are greeted at the door of this small cozy restaurant and you very well might see the chef visiting tables too. Presentation on your plate is a work of art, food is wonderfully prepared, and service is fabulous! It is... More

We dined at The Blue Window on Friday night and as many times as we have been there it gets better every time. If you haven't been there you are missing out. A wonderful experience.

We have been there several times and always enjoyed the food and the service. They have a nice price fixed menu as well However, we were disappointed this time. My husband ordered grouper from the price fix and it comes with appetizer and salad. He ate both and when he was served his dinner, it was obviously not fresh fish...tasted... More

Who would have thought that Fort Myers, Florida, of all places, would have the best French cusine I have tasted since I left New York many years ago. My car GPS got a little confused to the location so we switched to the smart phone and arrived at destination. It is part of strip stores on US41 (which is also... More

Food is wonderful and unique, full of imagination and creativity. You'll find some very interesting items on the menu that are prepared with care and attention to detail. We've had some things I would never have thought I'd eat and am always surprised at how much we enjoyed them. Owners, Mari and Christian, are so very friendly and down to... More

After going through withdrawal this summer, we decided to pop in after a long day of shopping. Came right at opening and were fortunate to get in before the always busy restaurant got too busy. Had the onion soup-perfection! Slow, simmered stock with the sweetness of the carmelized onions. Not too salty which elsewhere is a big problem. My husband... More

While the meals were adequate the did come with a high price. Along with the high price the restaurant was very noisy. The 2 couples on the next table were the loudest in this small, intimate restaurant. Could have been a nice evening but...

We were warmly greeted by Mari, the chef's wife. This started our wonderful dining experience. This adorable bistro is the "real French deal" in our area. We chose from the prix fixe menu and enjoyed everything we were served....escargots, shrimp provencale appetizers...salad with light oil and vinegar dressing....steak and fries....grouper en papilotte...creme brulee...profiteroles. Everything, including the rolls served with dinner... More

We went here on the advise of friends and after reading the other Trip Advisor reviews. And it was just what we expected, great. My wife started with escargot and I had the onion soup. Both were excellent. Soup was a crock and very filling. Hard to pass on the frog's legs but I did. My wife had the 1/2... More
