I loved Mangrove, their menu was fantastic, and their special dinner price, which includes wine and selection from the menu, was even better. I ordered paella and everyone else on my table some sort of seafood dish, everything was fantastic! The Mangrove is the place to enjoy a grear dinner indeed. Now during low season you can make a short... More

My wife and I had a very good dinner at Mangrove. We both very much enjoyed our entrees - one meat, the other fish. Tasty, with good sides. Good service. Friendly and helpful waitress. The value is phenomenal for Naples, especially Fifth Avenue, if you use the two person "wine dinner" special. Includes all of the entrees, and while the... More

Took a party of 45 to Mangrove last night. This is a keeper for us - wonderful staff who never missed a beat serving 45 people who all sat down at once. Their menu is extensive, food is served piping hot and the staff can not do enough for their guests. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed!

I find it hard to fault. But just not worthy of the full 5 star. Our server was 'nice' enough and that can make a big difference in a good or totally awful review. Food was beautifully presented and very tasty I had the scallop au gratin and my husband the airline chicken. Both of us cleared our plate. I... More

This was a very good meal, all of the restaurants on 5th run specials during the slow season and Mangrove really had a great menu and value promotion. We were able to select 1 entre each- a salad and a bottle of wine for 39.99! Unfortunitally our server was inconvenienced from the minute we told her we were interested In... More

We love the wine and dine option but unless you can sit outside we find it too noisy to hear the conversation at the table. It is a very busy place and tables are very close together. Best to visit on a week night.
