Wonderful Naples 5th Avenue Restaurant

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... read 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

Any item from the menu plus a salad and a bottle of wine - FOR TWO PEOPLE - $49.95. The food was good and there are plenty of selections. The service was fair. The one big problem is the noise level is high and all conversation stops when jets take off or land at the Naples municipal airport. This is... More

We had a reservation for a different night but changed plans at the last minute. Staff was great and very accommodating. We dined in the sidewalk seating area which was great on a sunny evening. We took advantage of the early dinner special but upgraded the wine selection. I had Veal Marsala, which was very good and my wife had... More

We sat at the tables on the sidewalk, enjoyed a great meal and watched beautiful cars and people glide by. For $39.00 a couple we had a great meal with a salad starter and a bottle of wine. I had the New Orleans style crusted red fish, with a dry aged andoville crust over wilted spinach. Absolutely superb. My friend... More

Restaurants in Naples are expensive and we saw a poster as per the title of this review when passing by and being from Yorkshire England we can't resist a bargain. The menu was excellent and we were both spoiled for choice, my wife had a fish pie which she said was delicious and I had a steak, which was cooked... More

Four of us ate here on a Tuesday night a few weeks ago. We made a reservation and were seated almost immediately when we got there. There was outdoor seating, but we opted to eat indoors as rain was predicted. The dinner special was salad and entrees, which included anything from the menu and a bottle of red or white... More

Good place to go . Good food but they can get busy during the season so crowded. Their prices just went up but still good deal to get meal for two and a bottle of wine I think for 49.00.
