Homestyle authentic French food at its best! Owners Liza and Philippe Boét prepare and present food that more than satisfies. Their Red Snapper en Papillote was delicious, the Beef Bourguignon is to die for and the Kobe Burger is amazing. The children's menu is wonderful as well and as diverse in offerings at that of the main menu. Our nine... More

Chez Boet was a charming, intimate, French restaurant. The tables were both square or round, sported crisp white linens, and provided ample space for diners not to feel cramped. Designated parking was available behind the restaurant. Our wine, salads, mussels, escargot, main courses, and desserts were superb. There was seating outdoors, at the bar area, and in the small restaurant.... More

We loved our meal here enjoying the pâté which was very fresh served with cornichon and a small salad, the duck cassoulet was melt in your mouth and the seafood tangne was great. If we lived here we would be regulars and appreciate the elegance.

A small to moderately sized French restaurant located in the Naples Dock area, run by a hands-on husband and wife team. Very simply the food was excellent. For starters we had a French onion soup that was not a typical salty broth but was tempered sweetly with marsala and port. The bread and melted cheese accented the soup rather than... More

We have been here many times and it is my favorite dining spot in Naples. The Boets have captured the ambience of a French bistro, which is what makes the place unique, especially in southwest Florida! Among my favorites are the bouillabaisse, the moules frites, and the canard roti. The house wines by the glass are excellent and reasonably priced.... More

We both had the delicious Chicken tagine with its layers of flavors and seasonings. It was delicious, and the warm evening made for perfect outdoor dining. The service was excellent and overall the setting and the music very relaxed.. My salad with the white truffle dressing was nicely subtle and very tender. A great evening.

This was our first collective (6 of us) visit to Chez Boet and all of us raved about the excellent food, service and value received. I had the onion soup and lamb tagine and both were high in my list of the best dishes I have ever eaten. The others had the featured duck, seafood tagine and moules frites (mussels)... More
