Beautiful atmosphere, delicious food, attentive and knowledgeable server. The wine list is extensive enough to please any need. Couldn't ask for more.

On March 8, 2014 we went to Bayfront Bistro for the early bird dinner which was advertised. Upon entering the hostess handed us the regular menu. After being seated, we remembered we should have the early bird menu and had to ask for it. There was an option on that menu to either get one glass of wine with your... More

It appears Dominic was not having his best night. Thank You for bringing this to our attention. I have done some research on your bill and it appears that you requested Dominic to split your bill evenly between 2 different credit cards from your table. The only difference between the bills is one person put a 25 dollar tip on... More

This was the 3rd time we've visited Bayfront and will go back again. Very nice seating in the back with waterview. Waitress was excellent in that she was timely, informative and attentive. We had cocktails and a cheese plate, which was to die for! You got to pick 3 cheeses from numerous choices. It, also, included fresh strawberries, bread, tangy... More

We are always pleased with the service and the food. Always recommend it to our friends and family. We live in Fort Myers year round and have a lot of choices,... More

My son gave me a gift certificate for Bayfront Bistro, and I'm so thankful he did. This was a wonderful experience! There was a slight mix-up with the 3rd party vendor that issued the gift certificate, but the restaurant personnel resolved the issue promptly and courteously before I arrived, with no inconvenience to me. My friend and I were very... More

This restaurant is stunningly beautiful with a lovely view of the bay. It's upscale and very expensive but if you're looking for fine dining, it's one of the very few on the island. The food is quite nice although perhaps a tiny bit inconsistent (I once ordered the cioppino and found it to be quite salty) but the butterfish and... More

Picked up a brochure for Bayfront Bistro and was really looking forward to a nice dinner. Did notice that the brochure stated prices are subject to change......Well let me tell, you they did, and by well over 35 to 40 percent on everything at that. Additionally, the menu changed completely and didn't even offer the items that were on the... More
