I believe our waitress name was Lisa and she was amazing. We went back the next day for happy hour and Dave the bartender was great. Half price drinks and appetizers was great deal.

We went dining here before going on a 3-hour cruise. It really is a unique restaurant in every way. Hope we will be back some day!

We had a great experience at our Sunday night dinner. Our server, Jeff, was friendly and efficient without being obtrusive. Our meals were first rate from appetizer to desert. The bar was accommodating on a special request. All in all a very nice evening with good value for my money. The show? Seated outside on the balcony overlooking the water,... More

Always loved this restaurant for lunch and dinner. A few of us went for happy hour for the first time and we were thrilled. The bartender, Lauren, couldn't have been any nicer or more attentive. The appetizers were delicious and very satisfying. The manager, Kurt, stopped by to chat with us. A very pleasant evening and experience. We will be... More

We ate at the Bayfront Bistro on Sunday night and the service was excellent. The food arrived quickly and was well prepared and delicious. We enjoyed it so much that we brought our friends from Denmark on Monday night. We were seated promptly but from there it was like time had stopped. They brought us water quickly and told us...

Saturday evening at the height of the snowbird season. Seated on time. Good service. Decent but limited wine list. Excellent lobster bisque and caprese salad. Scallops and grouper entrees better than average. Very attractive seating on one level above the street over looking the beach. Parking on site. If it wasn't for the vista, which is great, would rate as... More

Great views and really beautiful design. We found that the food and the surroundings combined to make the experience really nice. We had an 11 person group and each person found something they enjoyed. The food presentation was very nice and service was good. Pricing was not out of line with experience but food options need better description from wait... More

The appetizers were very good, the service was fine but not exceptional, the bisque was excellent, but the caesar salad was a disappointment, especially the croutons. They were stale and soggy.

Thank prideca
