Amazing! The owners are physically at the restaurant meeting you, welcoming you, checking on you throughout your meal. The staff are very well trained and friendly. The food took us back to France it was so good. I had the French onion soup and the shrimp pasta and both were outstanding. For desert we had the Neapolitan with chantilly cream.... More

This French bistro is quaint, informal, family run and off the beaten path of the 5th Avenue rush in Naples. Chez Boet has a great atmosphere inside and out with al Fresco porch dining overlooking the street. The chef presents very classic French country food…pate’s, cheeses, slow cooked classics, seafood, boeuf bourguignon and more. The best part might be the... More

We've visited the last couple of years, and this time was better than ever. We've always loved the lamb tagine, the outdoor seating and the low key friendly service. In the past, perhaps too low key. But this time our waiter was attentive and helpful and both owners came by to chat and admire our Havanese, Chantilly. My wife started... More

From a very accommodating experience when booking our reservation, through dessert, we were impressed by the food and service. Between our party of six, there were a variety of salads, appetizers and entrees, all of which were praised while being consumed. Nice dining room overseen by Lisa and an attractive bar manned by Phillippe, who accommodated one or our party's... More

Great Restaurant! Lisa and Phillippe are wonderful and work hard to ensure you have a grand time. This is a great place to stop by for a glass of wine and an appetizer or sit down for a full meal. You will not be disappointed

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
