We went to the bayside bistro with a group of friends. We were seated outside on the deck which was lovely! The wine we ordered off the menu was not available, but the waitress recommended an alternate wine which was quite good. The calamari appetizer was OUTSTANDING. Really excellent! The entrees were great too, but the calamari was out of... More

The outdoor waterfront setting at Bayfront Bistro is one of the nicest in the Ft Myers area. I appreciated a handwritten birthday card on the reserved table when we arrived. The waiter was not seasoned or savvy and made several highly opinionated (negative?) comments about menu items he did not recommend. Also made biased comments about a soccer team in... More

The food and service were good. Ceasar salad dressing was perfectly prepared. The grouper was very fresh. Creme Brulee' just perfect.

Food was very blasé and disappointing! Location is within walking distance, but we wish we would have walked a little further down the road! The menu descriptions really grabbed our attention, but the taste and pricing did not live up to the food served. What a shame! Will not return!

Stopped in late one night for drinks, appetizers and salad. All in our party immediately noticed a change in the server's attitude when he learned we were not going to order a $30+ entree. Too bad because in all likelihood, we would have returned later in the week with our large group because the view was spectacular. The same waiter... More

My husband and I went to the Bayfront Bistro while on vacation. Beautiful views of the bay. Atmosphere was excellent. Service staff was friendly and competent. We ordered off of the daily specials menu. These dishes were very good. We even had dessert which was also delicious!!

We were here last, as I recall, in late 2012, having come 3 times. After the last visit swore we would not return: unexciting food, terrible service, hugely overpriced wine list. Well, we did: this summer Bayfront is offering 50% off on all bottles of wine $150 or less on Wednesdays, and we could not resist; everyone deserves a second... More

First visit was a 5 star experience. Crisp calimari, perfectly prepared fillet, mussels and shrimp. Waitress Sarah is a gem! She offered alternate options for my food allergy, and knew her wine pairings for our orders. So we returned on Thursday as part of our vacation. I ordered the calimari again. They put the calimari on the bottom and drowned... More
