4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2014 NEW credit card Amex Card Member Review

We were 2 couples. We've both been there many times before over several years. The setting is very nice, and the service is impeccable. Everyone had something different, from fish to steak to chicken. All of the dishes were very good. My one criticism is that although they have a few specials, their menu essentially hasn't changed in years. They... More

The Veranda restaurant is compliant with all State of Florida mandated Health Inspections pursuant with the Department of Business and Professional Regulations. We are vigilant with Pest Control inspections and treatments and report to the State of Florida as requested by the Health Department. We find it interesting that you submitted a review in October for a visit in February. More

The ambience of this restaurant is reminiscent of old Florida. The food is very good. The salad is unusual in that they put hearts of palm in it. I had the filet and it was cooked just perfectly.. tender and juicy. My husband had the rack of lamb and said it was one of the best he ever had. We... More

By far the most elegant and classiest restaurant in Dowtown Fort Myers. The servers are extremely professional, attentive and friendly. I love the tableside service of the preparation of the caesar salad. The appetizers, entrees and desserts that we had were amazing. We definitely will be back. Edward Santana Fort Myers

While it is too expensive to eat there every week, it is a great place for a special night. The service is outstanding.

Great food, service, and location! The restaurant is a lovely old home with a beautiful outdoor space. Food and service were equally good. Definitely worth a visit!

The Veranda has "old Florida charm" in the middle of the city. My favorite restaurant in Fort Myers. The ambience is romantic and quaint whether you dine inside or outside. The menu selections are well prepared and delicious. The attentiver staff makes your dining experience special..
