Good deal but watch the extras!

The two entrees, side salad and wine deal is great value. The salad was basic but the steak main lovely. We had white and red wine as we don't drink the same which was accommodating. The restaurant was busy so service slightly slow at times but quick with the food. If you stick to the menu it's... read more

Made reservations for a gathering of 10... requested a round table... could not be happier... They accommodated our every whim... the table was wonderful, the food exceptional, and our server was extremely efficient and attentive to our needs. We had a wonderful meal and a fantastic reunion with some old friends... thank you Mangrove for making this a terrific time!!!

Our visit on a busy February Friday was a bitter disappointment. We knew that the 2 for 1 special including a bottle of wine had jumped from $34.99 to $49.99 since we visited last fall. Despite the $15 increase, we made a mistake and decided to go. We were seated promptly but unfortunately adjacent to the bar in a very... More

I visit my parents in Florida about 3 times a year and make it to this restaurant almost every time. Wait staff is always excellent and they cook the fish perfectly every time, and I mean every time. It is my bench mark of how I judge other restaurants. I've been going here long before they did the specials and... More

Each year we look forward to having dinner at the Mangrove Cafe on Fifth Avenue in Naples, Florida with our friends. We had dinner at The Mangrove again last week and the food & service was terrific as usual. In season, this restaurant is always busy, so reservations are highly recommended. Their 2 Entrees, 2 Salads, and a bottle of... More

We are a family of four with tween children, and we were with another couple with kids the same age. Walking down Fifth Avenue can give you sticker shock. We did a TA "near me now" and saw the favorable reviews, so that was that. The deal they offer is not to be beaten. Two entrees from the main menu,... More

When we are in Naples, the Mangrove Cafe is a must. Though they increased the price, the two for one deal is a great deal. For $49.99, you get two salads, two dinners, and a bottle of wine. The nice thing is that you can choose anything on the menu. They even have gluten free entrees. We had the paella... More

Mangrove Cafe is always a favorite of ours when we visit Naples. It is right on the corner in downtown Old Naples - a busy spot, but a great spot. It is a bustling site; seating both indoors and outdoors, although the outdoors in right on the sidewalk (perhaps exciting, if that's what you like). We prefer to sit indoors,... More
