Sheesh, it had been perfect the first visit. But this time, the hostess forgot she had had us waiting by the piano. The dude that came to work with her, when I asked him if they had forgotten us, got my name and time of reservation wrong! Ooops. Then at our table, the waiter was not knowledgable. It was, well,...

On our recent visit to Ft. Myers we were treated to a wonderful evening over dinner at The Veranda. Located in the old downtown they offer valet parking but there is free parking right across the street. Our server, Michael, was a really friendly ex-Jersey guy who knew how to add to the enjoyment of a great dinner. My wife... More

I believe this is my 3rd dining experience at The Veranda...and once again, left very pleased at the end of the evening. To digress...we are a rather large friendly group, who gather to dine at various restaurants before our monthly trek to the local playhouse. No easy feat to serve 14+/- diners and keep everyone happy! Seated outdoors was perfect... More

We happened upon this restaurant when driving by and it looked very nice. The patio is surrounded with greenery - you can bearly see the buildings that are all around. We dropped by for a late lunch and were seated right away. We did not have any napkins or any service for a little while but did not minds as... More

We were seated one hour and a half after our reservation time. Even for this we had to ask twice. Having sat at the bar waiting you would think they would have come over at least to apologize if not to pick up our bar tab. We had made the reservations 4 days earlier, and even still, when we were... More

Dear RMH1960 Upon reading your review, we researched your reservation and found that two of your party showed up at the appropriate reservation time, but the other two in your party arrived late due to a traffic accident on I-75, which of course, is out of our control. Once your late party arrived you were seated right away. One of... More

The special occasion was my birthday. Had reservations and were seated right away. I love to eat here and always have a hard time deciding which wonderful meal I want to have. This night was no exception. Our waiter was from the South of France and his accent made the evening more special. We never order appetizers here, because from... More

It is worth working your way through a few one way streets in Ft. Myers to get to the Veranda. Once you arrive there is valet parking. As you enter, the ambiance surrounds you. On a nice night my wife and I like to eat in the beautiful courtyard, but wherever you sit be prepared for a wonderful meal. Don't... More

We have dined here several times over the years, often at New Year's with friends. This year's experience was terrible. The restaurant was running 30 plus minutes behind. That might be ok and understandable if the hostess and greeters were cheerful and apologetic. Usually a bit of humor and point me to the bar and I am good to go.... More

Visited the Veranda for the 3rd time a few months back. Nice formal restaurant with a pretty nice menu. Our main courses was great. However, the french onion soup was very salty. A common thing in many restaurants. It must be made fresh every day, or it will get very salty if re-heated, or kept in the cooler for days.... More
