We have been making Bayfront Bistro the restaurant that we go to for dinner on our arrival at Fort Myers Beach each winter for the the last four years and have always had a fantastic evening. For each visit I have felt the service, food, view and atmosphere cannot be improved upon. I have never been disappointed.

Bayfront Bistro is a wonderful way to spend lunch or dinner celebrating the back bay and the Mangrove preserves...while enjoying a spectacular meal!

There aren't a lot of waterfront dinning options in the Bonita Springs/Fort Myers area, so we were happy to find this one with contemporary decor and a nice ambience. The restaurant is located on the second floor of the building and we sat closest to the water, overlooking the boats docked in the bay. We took advantage of an early... More

Once again we enjoyed our delicious dinner at Bayfront Bistro. When we arrived about six couples all arrived at the same time. So it took staff a few minutes to get us all organized and move waiters around. We did wait 20 minutes for a waiter but once our order was taken it moved like clockwork.the meals was terrific, ambiance... More

Nice view of Estero Bay, but keep in mind in evening you are facing east so no sunset views. Recommend the firecracker shrimp appetizer - good spice and nice portion. Seafood is good but Florida lobster tails are not the quality nor flavor like Maine. Behind Publix so after dinner go there to get dessert at their nice bakery!

Bayfront Bistro is one of the more expensive restaurants on Ft Myers Beach, but it was well worth it. The food was great and we had wonderful service from our waitress. If you have a special occasion this is one place to consider.

We recently visited this restaurant because we had formerly had good dining experiences there. The setting is great, right on the water by a marina and it has a neat bar downstairs. Our experience this visit was not great, however. We were seating quickly, ordered drinks and appetizers, all of which came quickly. We then ordered our food, expecting prompt... More

The manager was top notch from making our dinner reservations for me by phone in the very hectic time surrounding my wedding. She informed me that she would have us a nice table outside with a great view of the water. Little did we know that when we got there the restaurant staff had signed a congratulatory card due to...
