Sunset Savy

Good food and service, great sunset. Service seemed a bit slow but that also allowed for more viewing of sunset. Food was good - nice menu.

The service was exceptional. The food was fantastic. And, the view looking out over the marina was spectacular. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Bayfront Bistro. We will definitely be dining there the next time we visit Ft. Myer Beach.

My better half and I were back on Fort Myers Beach for 10 days in July. It was her second 31st B'day and we had reservations for 7 pm. We arrived a little early and were seated right away in a very comfortable booth. Our waitress greeted us with a smile and made us feel very comfortable from the start.... More

Service was great, view was great. Food not even on par with Olive Garden. Big disappointment. I had Creole shrimp with had almost no flavor. Sauce was thin as water. I don't know what company they pay to keep their rating up...that has to be the case.

Beautiful view of Estero Bay from the _ Bight (?) Marina. We dined indoors in a lovely dining room that you could tell they paid attention to every detail. Excellent service. We each started with a Sauvignon Blanc and a Top Self Margarita....perfect. Great iceberg wedge which we shared. My wife had the Lobster Scampi Tortellini (to die for) and... More

The butterfish meal I had lacked any flavor. for 40 dollars I expected a btter meal. Also the other people at my table ordered paella . It was mushy and lacked shrimp and sausage. I am going to cross this off my list for dinner.

Excellent food, service, and view. Very unique menu with incredibly creative flavor combinations. At first i thought it was pricey when i looked at the menu on-line, but after experiencing the quality food, service, and incredible atmosphere - I thought the price was reasonable. Already planning a return dinner at Bayfront.
