C'est Magnifique!

Came here with friends who are ardent Francophiles. The meal lasted about 3 hours, was very intimate, great wine selection, and the food was so well done. We plan to be back!

Small resto with a low key, 'rustic' ambiance, friendly knowledgeable staff, broad menu & wine list - and excellent food. Most of us ordered from the 4 course fixed price menu [$45] since there was such a variety of starters and mains. Service was prompt but not pushy. We did share a fair amount so i had a sample of...

This is our favorite place, to date, in Fort Myers.....and we didn't even eat a full meal! It is located in a tiny spot in a slightly tired strip mall. We were in a bit of a hurry as we were going to a play. We called to ask if we could just have an appetizer. They said sure ,... More

we had an excellent experience last night at Blue Windows. we shared vichyssoise, foie gras two ways and bouillabaisse. All beautifully cooked and presented and graciously served. the atmosphere and decor are eerily reminiscent of a French provincial parlor and the cooking might have been done by madam herself. Splendid stuff and all the more so from being tucked away... More

We have a yearly ritual to visit Blue Windows. Excellent food and service. Owners are warm and happy to have patrons who are full and satisfied. Wonderful French cuisine and great selections. Even provide a gluten-free menu. We recommend this outstanding restaurant in Ft. Myers.

I truly enjoy going to the Blue Windows with my french girlfriend Anne. After 18 years as a chef myself in Europe and the US, this is the place we go when we want to experience the best french food in all of Southwest Florida. We're always treated like family when we walk in the door. Roy T.

Found the kineys, the rabbit was so happy. A long time since I found these items on a menu and/or so well prepared. My husband's lamb chops a little overcooked. Our wine -Gigondas- a little overpriced compare to other restaurant where we had the same recently, Would definitely go back. yes.

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
