This restaurant had so many great reviews I think my expectations were too high. Lovely atmosphere & good menu. Waiter was pleasant but not super attentive. Food was good but not great. Portions small and prices high. Don't usually object to prices but expect better service and quality. Not sure we'd try it again.

Beautiful downtown Ft. Myers historic area restaurant. Our reservations were at 730 and when we arrived we were seated immediately. Our waiter, Pete was by our table side within a few moments after we sat down. His service was excellent! The food was delicious and presented beautifully. The prices are high, but not for the ambience, service and food! It... More

While the atmosphere is very nice, the food was less than desirable for a "high end" restaurant and I was very disappointed and dissatisfied. The virgin Bloody Mary was truly virgin, just Bloody Mary mix..no olives, no celery, no lemon or lime. The French onion soup had such a thick layer of cheese I had to use my fingers to... More

After a bit of a tough start - we (eventually) had a lovely lunch yesterday with friends at the Veranda in downtown Ft Myers. Arriving about 1:15, without reservations, we initially were treated in shabby fashion by the hostess as we discussed our desire for a table on the patio. After being told none were available we asked if it... More

This was our first visit to The Verandah and we had an outstanding experience. Everything was so superb, the food, the service, the ambiance. What a lovely setting for a romantic dinner. We had the Chateaubriand steak for two. It came with a delicious salad, homemade dressing, warm bread and cornbread muffins with house made pepper jelly that was incredible.... More

What an awesome place to visit with that special someone! I went for lunch with a group of women but you can bet I'll be back with my Sweetie! The restaurant is so beautiful! The bar area was magnificent and the outside dining so inviting. Waitstaff was very pleasant and helpful. As for the food, I had a salad and... More

This is a gem in the middle of downtown Ft. Myers. Food is delicious, well prepared and presented. It is 'hidden' by newer, larger buildings - but if you want a truly southern food experience, it's worth the hunt. Wait staff is professional, always delightful. We love it for a nice lunch or memorable dinner. Ask about table-side preparations as... More

Sometimes places are around just because of their legendary status. I said that to my date last night as we tasted our lobster and prime rib. Let me say first that our server John was incredible, Personable, and friendly. The Ambience this restaurant is hard to be as we sat out in the courtyard by the Koi pond. The lobster... More
