Another Go-to place of ours!!

Their Spring Special cannot be beat....$39.99 for dinner for 2 (anything on their menu) including crunchy bread for the table, individual salads and a bottle of wine (we go with the white, very good, light and crisp). Service is outstanding! Michelle has been our server many times and she is... read more

Let me preface by giving my credentials so you take my remarks seriously, I am a retired chef from four star hotels and private clubs. The hostess was very pleasant, we waited at the bar with a glass of wine on a busy Saturday night. The bartender was snooty and pretensious and barely gave us the time of day to... More

We happened to stumble upon this place while walking through town. We stopped in for a little dinner. I had the lamb chop special. Probably the tastiest meal Ive had while in Naples. Reasonably priced too. Diane, the owner stopped by and chatted with us for a bit and we had a very great time. A must do while in... More

My boyfriend and I went to the Mangrove Cafe this past Wednesday. Let me note that we are in our early twenties a much younger couple to be dining on 5th avenue. Anyway, we were drawn to this restaurant because of the 39.99 dollar special, which offered 2 salads, a bottle of wine and 2 entrees, awesome. The food was... More

I was very disappointed in our food here. Two of us had sirloin steaks - other was good but mine was dry and tough. The mashed potatoes were very good. Our other two dinners were rated "good"- salmon and a seafood casserole. Certainly nothing rated higher than average. The service was fine and we had no complaints about that. I... More

We were very happy with our choice of restaurants in Naples. The restaurants in the area are quite expensive but it is Naples. This place was offering two can dine for under $50 which includes salad, choice of any meal and a bottle of wine. I had a Spanish seafood dish which was incredible. My friends meal was also excellent.... More

One of the few Naples Restaurants that accept reservations along with children and this, along with a granddaughter, was our 4th visit back. Their special of salad, entrée, and bottle of wine for two of $49.99 continues to be a palate pleaser for the grown-ups. Our daughter enjoyed her Beet Salad appetizer and my husband and I enjoyed both their... More

Heard about the Mangrove Cafe from friends who live in Naples most of the year. Quite a bit of hype went with their description so our expectations were rather high. Arrived around 5:00PM on a weekday in late March, had a choice of outdoor seating which was great because it was a perfect day. Waitress stopped by shortly thereafter and... More

We went with two other couples for a nice, modestly priced, downtown Naples dinner. Since temperatures were in mid-80's, we elected to take an indoor table. Staff assisted in our getting parking within a block at no cost. They were having a special for couples. Each couple had salad, main course and a bottle of wine for a very reasonable... More
