Good dinner in Old Florida

Started slow but was a great dinner. Really good service in the restaurant after slow service in the bar, but bartender was alone and she was busy. Dinner was awesome, fish special of Triple Tail was really good. Filet was also good. Chocolate pâté for dessert was great finish. We'll be back!

We have shared many special occasions at this, perhaps the only really high end restaurant in a Fort Myers. Always packed - be sure to make a reservation. Exquisite food, artfully presented with impeccable service.

We have always had a great meal here--whether dining for 2, with our family, or for a business meeting. This is SWFL charm and ambience that will help you relax while having a delicious meal with great servers ;-)

The Veranda in Ft. Myers is not a chain restaurant. It has been a restaurant for 35 years and is a fine dining establishment in a pair of old houses that were joined together in the 1970's. This is a great place for a family dinner or a romantic dinner for two. Dinning is in one of many small rooms... More

This was our 1st time experience at the Veranda. We absolutely loved it! The table side service was impeccable as well as delicious! Our server, Pete was fantastic. We can not wait to visit again. We highly recommend The Veranda if you are searching for a fine dining experience.
