Our family thoroughly enjoyed the food & service at Bistro 821 while on vacation this year in Naples. The restaurant has been a staple of fine dining on 5th Ave for 20 years and our waiter had worked there for 15 years, so you can imagine the attentive service we experienced from our waiter's knowledgable explanation of the wine list,...

What can I say but outstanding value. Took the early dinner deal with a meal for two and a bottle of wine - we chose to take a wine off the main menu at 50% off rather than off the fixed menu, ended up with a bottle of Cloudy Bay that in a UK restaurant would have cost almost the... More

Bistro 821 has it all, great food, great atmosphere and one of the best waiters we have come across in a long time. Doug had some great food suggestions and all of them turned out to be delicious. Can't wait to return. If you go ask for Doug, he also has a great sense of humor.

Been here several times over the years and quality and value do not disappoint. During peak season after the early menu expires prices are higher but the quality of the sea food and pretty well every dish compensate. Basically you get what you pay for. This time I had paella which was delicious; my wife had a steak which again... More

Just returned home from a dinner at Bistro 821. Three in our group had the sea bass. We all thought it was the best fish we had during our entire vacation. My hubby had the duck and my friend had the lamb which they both thoroughly enjoyed. Nice wine selections also. Had three great appetizers also which, sorry to say,... More

We have dined at Bistro 821 twice now, and enjoyed it immensely. On both occasions we took advantage of the 'Wine and Dine' special and had the sea bass, and it was delicious. The (red) wine was good, too. The service was fast and friendly and the atmosphere was fun and upbeat. We'll definitely be back!

We went here on our last night in Naples. We made reservations via OpenTable and were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation time. The decor was very nice. A lively atmosphere without being too loud or overly casual. Our waiter, Kevin (I think) was fantastic. My wife and I had salads to start, and then I ordered the pick-2... More

All to often we go to a recommended restaurant and our food is at best warm and ready to eat but you always know it has been sitting on the ready line for awhile. Well not here because all of us commented on how how our food was when it arrived, and how delicious our sea bass and snapper were.... More

Bistro 821 is a hidden gem in Naples, FL! The menu has many choices and it offers the best gluten free menu in all of Southwest Florida since I have celiac disease. Everything is delicious, the service is great and the wine list is wonderful as well. The owner, Billy is always accommodating and last week we ate here three... More
