This is a lovely restaurant in Ft Meyers & deserves it's reputation. The food, service & ambience are always reliable. A bit pricey but worth a visit.

The Veranda bills itself as Old Southern style. The decor is beautiful and all the waiters are in formal dress. The atmosphere impresses. The bar is cozy and the adjacent room a nice place for a couple to dine. The outside patio is surrounded by lovely greenery, and misting fans when necessary. It's an elegant place, not your typical. We've... More

Going to the Veranda for lunch with friends is like stepping back a century or more. This restaurant is located within a very old establishment that has been renovated and restored into immaculate condition. The wait staff offer a level of service not often seen today in any establishment, tending to your every need and being proactive rather than reactive.... More

The historical building makes you feel like you arrived in horse drawn buggy. The atmosphere is old world charming and the servers are a delight. Everyone seems to be happy working there which makes a pleasant experience for the patrons. Have enjoyed many of the lunch dishes and dinner is a special treat.

My fiancé and I had dinner with another couple to celebrate our birthdays. From start to finish, the evening was perfect. The atmosphere, food and service was excellent! The host took a commemorative photo of the "birthday girls" which he presented to each of us! That was an unexpected and very nice touch! Michael Costello was our server. He is... More

I have rated this 5 star restaurant in the past and continue to go back for several reasons. The food, the charm and because of Pete, a very special server. Pete has been at The Veranda for 23 years and knows the food and wines well. More than that, he makes you feel welcome and that you are his only... More

We had Chateaubriand and it was the best I have ever had. The meat was cooked perfectly and the vegetables were amazing. It was finished and served table-side. The wait staff is very attentive and our waiter was wonderful..

The Veranda is elegant without being fussy. The atmosphere is lovely and the food was perfect. We had the rack of lamb and the prime rib, and both were cooked perfectly. The oysters and escargot were both prepared and presented beautifully. Key Lime pie for dessert was one of the best we've ever had. The staff was friendly without intruding... More
