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

We have been coming to Fort Myers Beach from the UK for 8 years because of the weather and relaxed atmosphere. Three years ago we discovered the Bayfront Bistro and have never been disappointed, this year being no exception. We have always been treated very well by the staff who have always made us feel welcome. The menu and thoughtfully... More

Bayfront Bistro never let's us down. This time we went for breakfast. And oh boy, the heuvos rancheros were simply out of this world. I also had Bloody Mary and it was served in a tall glass, freshly made. The view of the bay is relaxing. Prices are on the higher side, but again, the Bayfront Bistro is no IHOP.... More

Went for dinner on a Saturday night. Restaurant is right on the water. Service was great. Food was a different story. High priced, small portions, and average fare. Felt like the food didnt do justice to the menu. Would not go back.

This is an excellant restaurant that is popular and busy. At the right time of day can also be romantic. The food is very good and the drinks are even better. Just an upscale fine dining place to take your wife or girlfreind. You over look the bay side of the island so you lack the beach sunset but this... More

Great review - thanks for sending us your feedback. Don't forget you can also come see the moon rising over the bay and watch dolphins frolicking in the Back Bay! Bring your wife or girlfriend but don't bring both on the same night - HA. Thanks for your great 5-star review. More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed two great meals at Bayfront Bistro on our recent trip to Fort Myers. The ambience on the porch, the service, and the food were all excellent. We will definitely return to this restaurant on future trips to the area!

We enjoyed a table at the window overlooking the bay. Very beautiful view to enjoy our meal. The food was excellent. From the crusty bread with herb dipping oil to the crab cake and plantain appetizer to the Grouper with Udon noodles we enjoyed it all. No room for dessert. Our server was also excellent. Pricey, but very good.
