“Best anniversary!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

March 18th was our anniversary and, based on past visits, we decided to spend our special night at Bistro 821. We love the food there and the bistro ambiance is so upbeat. The food there is possibly the best in Naples, particularly the Chilean Sea bass. My husband ordered the Sea Bass (as he does at most places) and he has not stopped raving about his dinner since that night. They have a section on the menu where you can choose two or three smaller portions of six entrees to make up your dinner. I chose the Sea Bass and the fillet...both were phenomenal!! I have in the past ordered the seafood pasta and the seafood risotto...both are excellent.The service was impeccable...they knew it was our anniversary and we were treated to a chocolate lava dessert that was wonderful. I would also recommend the Key Lime martini...creamy and smooth and takes like the best key lime pie that you have ever had!
It was a great anniversary!!!
They also have an early dining experience that is an exceptional value with wonderful choices.

“Best on Strip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

We have found Bistro 821 to be the best of the two dinners plus a bottle of wine special on 5th. We suggest making a reservation as the restaurant is very busy for the special which is available from 4:30- 5:45. We have eaten there twice- once for the special and the other off the regular menu. Both were excellent -try the paella and the rib eye. The service is always top notch! We will definitely return to this restaurant next year when we come back to Naples!

“we loved Bistro 821”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

We went to Naples for a week and ate out every night. Our favorite restaurant was Bistro 821. We were thrilled we were able to eat there twice. The best dishes are the seafood paella and the seafood risotto. Excellent! Ambience is great, waiters professional...Have nothing to complain about.
Would go back there in a minute!!

“This is where we go for a Special Occasion meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

We have been going to this restaurant for several years and it never disappoints. The food is excellent, waitstaff extremely polite and efficient and it has a nice ambiance.
The Sea Bass is incredible. As much as we would like to try other dishes, we very seldom do as this is one of their specialities and both my husband and I usually order it.
They have nightly specials which include a bottle of wine with two entrees for a very reasonable price with upgrades available.
It is a very popular restaurant and I recommend you make reservations.

“Excellent presentation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014 via mobile

I was recently at the Bistro with a large party. The service was amazing and the sole I ate was fabulous. Also loved the key lime pie for desert. The salad was a little lack luster, but other than that. Great meal and would definitely go back.
