"Birthday Celebration"

14 of us had lunch last week. Food & service excellent even with a jibber jabber of a group. Well done from service to kitchen. Great local spot.

The atmosphere was relaxed and they accommodated us with a infant and a 2 year old. The portabella stuffed raviolo was spectacular. The wait staff was friendly however let one of our guests sit in the bar without telling them we had arrived. (same staff sat us both and knew we had someone else coming)

Our young family of 6 was able to eat here. At first walking in I thought we were underdressed with our casual wear. We we able to sit down quickly and our food was brought out quickly. The meal was excellent and service really good.

Great non touristy place. Had the red snapper special which was amazing. We came with a large party and they were very accommodating. Will definitely be back on our next visit.

I usually always eat at a seafood restaurant when at the beach, but I am so glad I didn't. The food here was amazing. It was by far the best meal we had in Ft. Walton. The bread was so light and deliously and the oil dip was amazing. I had the spinach salad and it was perfect. The spinach... More

We have a home in Fort Walton Beach and try to visit different restaurants in the area (main residence is in Atlanta). There are too many great restaurants in the area to go to that make Ali's Bistro a pass up place. Nothing about our meal was exceptional. My wife's salad was wilted and on a room temperature plate.

We are locals and just went there for a family dinner for the first time. Their Alfredo pasta with shrimp is to die for! Service kind of slow but we were very understanding since the place was packed, our waitress look like she had too much going on and was frustrated, something that she was projecting with her attitude.

I do enjoy dining at Ali's. The Chicken Piccata is to die for. Great pasta dishes and wonderful pizza. Happy hour specials on wine and pizza. Try it. You'll like it.

Excellent atmosphere with excellent wait staff and food. No matter which appetizer, entrée or dessert you choose, you will be pleasantly surprised. For pizza lovers, this is by far one of the best places to try it! Bring the family as well.

We love this place! The mushroom ravioli will make you lick the bowl and the pizza is hands down one of the best I've ever eaten.
