We were a party of six celebrating someone's 40th birthday(she's really turning 50). My partner and I were the first in our party to arrive. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and chose to wait at the bar for the rest of our group. The bar tender was attentive. Once everyone arrived we were seated immediately. Our meal from... More

My parent's own a home 10 minutes from downtown Fort Myers and we frequent The Veranda when we want upscale dining and great service. The restaurant sits in a historic plantation home and once you step inside you are treated to southern hospitality at it's finest! Our most recent trip to The Veranda was for my grandmother's birthday and we... More

The Veranda has been in downtown Fort Myers for ever. It's like going to an old southern mansion for a meal. They have outside dining which is nice during the cool month's in Florida. Food and service is always good.

Our table had a lovely view of the garden and the cocktails we ordered were great. The service could not have been better--attentive and prompt. Salads and bread were delicious! All entrees were fresh & tasty, from lamb to fish to veal. An enjoyable meal and great ambiance as well.

What a wonderful date night location! It's a little old school feel, but I wouldn't want it any other way, it's hard to find these days! The food and service was excellent! I look forward to my next visit!

Extraordinary. So much so that, after our first visit last weekend, hubby and I are strongly considering going back to Veranda again THIS weekend, even though it's a 40+ minute drive (not a big deal to you city-dwellers but this is south Florida..). Everything was top notch. Caesar salad was perfect. Chateaubriand was perfect. Ambiance was perfect. We used to... More

Several weeks ago we had a wonderful experience at the Veranda. When it came time to celebrate two birthdays we suggested to our friends the Veranda. It was their first time there and they were very impressed. Although we had reservations, we had to wait a half hour for our table. We spent the time in the piano bar and... More

We go there for special occasions. You cant beat it for that in Ft. Myers. You can also reserve meeting space. Great food and a piano player in a Victorian mansion.
