Our first visit here was probably in 1980, and we have returned almost every time we are in the area. Back in the day, it was a dress-up restaurant, with servers in tux, and a very traditional French flair. It has added a beautiful outdoor...area, and it is much more relaxed, but still a place to go for a special dinner, evening, date. And THE place to watch the sunset. Great food this time as always, great drinks...get the fabulous Aperol Spritzers. Our server appeared to have too many tables, as he gave a wrong entree order to us. But the manager quickly fixed the problem. First time we have had either a server too busy or a wrong order. It was really busy. Still our favorite restaurant in the whole Pinellas area.More

We had dinner here and were seated with a great view of the sun setting. We ordered the shirmp cocktail for an appetizer was very good. I ordered the french onion soup, this was by far the best french onion soup I had ever eaten....So delicious. My husband had the lobster tail which was cooked to perfection and I had the mushroom stuffed ravioli very good. The staff was great with their service. We would recommend, and would return if back in Dunedin.More

We had a fantastic experience at Bon Appetit today. They took our name and told us it would be 40 minutes but it was only 15 minutes wait. Our waitress, Summer did everything right. She even told us what was not available before we looked...at the menu. The Lobster wedge salads were great as well as salmon cakes and grouper sandwich. Food and drinks were prompt and at the right temperature. We felt virus safe since we were outdoors at a beautiful waterfront and all the staff were covered (both mouth and nose)- thank you! Menus were QR'd on our phones and the payment machine makes things quick and easy... no waiting for your card to come back. The prices are on the premium side but the food/service/location makes it a value. If you are in Dunedin you will be delighted if you try Bon Appetit. PS. Free parking right there at the restaurant.More

The food was very nice but the service was awful. First I had booked one week ago a table by the window facing the water, which the restaurant had confirmed , but was not available when my party arrived. Our waiter made mistakes the whole...time he served us with a table next to ours ... the wines, the bill and the credit cards.. And after re-ordering some drinks we had to wait more than 20 minutes to get them... The bread and butter was served anyhow... like food for pigs and no space made on the table to put the dishes... etc ... what a disappointment for a restaurant with such a reputation! It’s a pity as the food is so delicious...More

Enjoyed dinner at the waterfront deck. It was on a first come first served basis. Our server, Bri, was very friendly and pleasant. If we needed anything, she was right there to help. I enjoyed the grilled salmon, with black-eyed peas and side salad. The...merlot wine added to the nice ambiance of the meal. I thought the price was a little pricey for what you ordered, but the spectacular sunset made up for the cost of the meal.More

I ate hear for dinner last night with 5 other adults. We had tuna, octopus and shrimp cocktail for appetizers. All were good. Several of us had grouper for dinner, one had Snapper and one had a fillet. My grouper was really good. It was...cooked with butter and capers. Everyone thought their food turned out good. The place is right on the water so a good place to watch the sunset. Service was really good also. They had a piano player who came around and took requests, she was very nice. Overall a good experience just a little pricey.More

Ambiance was very nice. Sauces overwhelmed the entrees. The dover sole was soaked in sauce and I would have preferred a drizzle of the sauce. The grouper was good but the sauce definitely had a mustard taste which wasn’t described on the menu so again...disappointed by the sauce. The side salad was very fresh and good. Service was a bit slow.More

We have dined here several times over the last few years when visiting Dunedin. This year was very disappointing. The service is usually impeccable but was not impressed this year. We had reservations and were seated quickly at a small table by a window, wonderful...so far....but... we seemed to be totally ignored by all the staff walking by our table. We had been sitting for 25 minutes with not one staff member acknowledging us. No water no nothing. I would have been happy with sorry, I’ll be right with you.... We were just getting ready to walk out when someone finally asked us if we had been waited on. No apology offered... he then came back and handed us paper menus ( we had scanned the bar code on the table and already knew what we wanted, but he didn’t bother to ask) After waiting some more, he finally came back with water and took our order. The food was okay. My hubby liked his steak. I had chicken which was over done and very chewy. Overall not impressed!More
