This is a great restaurant and we are so glad we went. This is on the must list anytime we are in the area. This is a French bistro with fabulous food. I had the pate and duck breast. The duck was the best I ever had. Dessert was was also great. Service was good and cost is very fair.... 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

My dinner companion had the... More

This was my third attempt to dine here, as my previous attempts the place was closed down by 8 pm. Yes 8 pm! Arriving on my third attempt was greeted warmly & quickly by the wait staff. Ordered two appetizers ($12-$15 each) plus a $60+ bottle of red wine and was going to split an entree with my companion. The... More

Christian and Mari own and operate this cosy french bistro in the unlikely environs of SW Florida. Being a great fan of small bistros and brasseries in Paris and the French countryside, it is a delight to enjoy the dinners that Christian prepares. Mari makes everyone feel as if you've been friends forever and we've yet to have a meal... More
