I took my mother and son there for her Mother's Day dinner on May 15, 2015. We had a superb meal! The best food I've had in Florida. Amazing! Highly recommend.

Both my husband and I are vegetarian so ended up eating a pasta dish for an entree minus the fish a little disappointed they still charged us the $30 price .... wasn't worth it. The salads are huge and had we known we would have skipped the entree and had a desert instead. Our kids were catered for and for... More

We visited Bayfront Bistro with friends and as usual, we were not disappointed. For a change of pace I had the pork pot roast, it was delicious. I usually get the Bayfront Butterfish, it is still my favorite. The service was great, the ambiance of the restaurant is magical. We ordered a bottle of wine (Delectus, Kights Valley Argentum, it...

Great atmosphere and a breath-taking view. We went for lunch and sat on the upper deck. The waiter took his time and let us relax and take in the views. The food was great...refreshing, tasty and unique.

Bayfront Bistro is an excellent place for lunch and dinner. The Asian Calamari appetizer is amazing. We had a wonderful dinner that included all the small touches to make our dinner experience wonderful. The view on the outside was equally amazing as we watched dolphins swim in the bay and a lightening storm in the distance.

Food was generally excellent. The Asian Calamari, Bayfront Butterfish, and Black Grouper with Lobster Salad were fantastic. The Diver Scallops left a lot to be desired - the scallops were pretty small for diver scallops, the risotto cake was out of place and bland, and the carrots were undercooked and also bland. Wait staff and view of the marina was... More

This was the restaurant we had been looking for all week! The ambiance was wonderful, the views were lovely, the service was great, and the food was absolutely delicious! The calamari appetizer is a must! If we weren't leaving tomorrow, we'd go back again. Best restaurant on the island!

Awesome presentation of the food, "Kaz" was an incredible server. A very great place to bring your loved one for a special dinner. The food is expensive - but you get what you pay for. The wine selection was amazing and the view of the bay was even better. Highly recommended.
