Because we typically dine early, the restaurant was empty upon our arrival. This is usually concerning to us but we persevered. By the time we were served our entree the place began to fill up and we were relieved. Host/owner Phillippe met us at the door and we were seated immediately. Our server, Steve was congenial and informative regarding the... More

We have lived in Naples full time for over a decade now and this place used to be called Bamboo Cafe, but they changed their name to reflect the French cuisine more accurately. It has a Moroccan influence, so the food is interesting. Also, it is a foodie's delight. Delicious food, well made. Decent service, not the most professional, but... More

In Crayton Cove, 12 Ave So. There is ample parking front and back; a very comfortable resturant. Reservations out of season not necessary but better to do so they can plan accordingly. Service fine but again can't opine as not in-season. Most salads are similar based with different ingredients on top ... ie: goat cheese or chick beans or fried... More

Chez Boët was simply spectacular. We normally do not seek out French restaurants, but my cousin raved about this place, and gave me a gift certificate for my birthday. Food and service were over the top. We were greeted by Philippe, the owner. We had our choice of any table; it is off-season in Naples, so not crowded. Having looked... More

More patrons need to find and frequent this fine family establishment. You won't find more admirable hands on passionate ownership anywhere. Philippe met us at the door, escorted us to our table, and after dinner approached us and spent time for a chit chat before we departed. It was our first time. We had seen top ten reviews in all...

Every time I visit Chez Boet, I am happily reminded why I love this place. It serves really fresh food, which is well prepared and delicious. You can always count on the dish being exactly as you remembered it from the last time you had it. The country pate is always one of my favorite menu items and it was... More

This charming, little restaurant provided an amazing dining experience. We received a warm greeting at the door and had our choice of tables. Once seated, we noticed the owners walking around and chatting with the diners. The menu was superb with numerous offerings. The Jura Salade had the most marvelous vanilla dressing that was light yet enough to compliment the... More
