I have been to this area several times and never knew this place was there. What a mistake I made by not looking around. This little gem was a delight. We went to Chez Boet for our anniversary. It could not have been a better experience. Philippe sat us in le "table romantique" and wished us a happy anniversary. As... More

We went there for dinner because the menu looked interesting and we had spoken to the owner earlier in the day. He's from France, around the Basque area. We were a party of 3 & arrived on time for our reservation. We were one of the first tables of the evening. We decided to have a couple of horderves each... More

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...
