“Bouillabaisse and Wine.. Exquisite and Divine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

We were visiting Ft Myers for my boyfriends birthday and decided to drive off the beach to Blue Windows.
The drive was well worth it.... A very nice, quaint atmosphere with a good wine menu available to pair with the food choices offered. The service was very good and as for the food I really enjoyed the spicy dinner salad prior to the dinner it had a unique flavor that I have never tasted before.
Typically I don't order off of a specials menu but the waitress said the saffron bouillabaisse was excellent so I took her advise and tried it.
I have to say I was completely knocked out by the complex flavor in that bowl and thought it was absolutely excellent. Every bite of seafood, potato and even the crostini was cooked perfectly all in one bowl. My boyfriend ordered the Lamb from the regular menu and said his dish was fantastic.
FYI: Make sure you get a reservation if you decide to venture there though. We went on a Friday night and every table was full. Wish I could go back sooner than later but it's a 3 hr drive....

“An exquisite dining experience!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

A must do restaurant while in the Fort Myers area. The prefix pricing is a wonderful way to experience
Several choices in a 4 course meal. The wine pairing is phenomenal.

“Tastes Like Chicken”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

While our first two dinners a while back at the Blue Windows French Bistro were good, they didn’t have us thinking as we left, “How soon can we get back here?” Our most recent visit did. Our dinner was excellent in every respect and we thought equaled some of our favorite restaurant meals in France. The highlight was a coq au vin that was simply sublime (our benchmark has been a near perfect rendering in Blois a decade ago; Blue Windows Bistro's version was on the same wonderful plane). A duck entrée was similarly delicious and beautifully presented. Our deserts included profiteroles topped with what appeared to be a very fine 70% dark chocolate, and the well-chosen wine list offered an excellent selection including some very attractive options in the $30-$50 range. Service was warm, attentive, and friendly and all combined to make for a splendid evening. Okay, NOW we are thinking “how soon can we get back here?”
