When we arrived the restaurant was empty except for 2 other tables. Service was OK. It seemed that the younger wait staff was a little more friendlier. But our server was OK. The food was good. I order the Escargot. It was excellent. That was the best part of my meal. I ordered their special which was Kobe Beef ribs,... More

My hosts had raved about this place, and perhaps that had set the bar a little high for my expectations.The menu selection was wide. The beef of the highest Kobe quality. The house red was fine. I very much liked the relatively low noise level (the restaurant was full and it was a Friday evening), and I loved the wallpaper... More

There is a lot to like about this restaurant, but in the Naples area the competition is pretty tough and there is no point in dining some place where the same menu is better elsewhere. Specifically, in the same week we ate her and at Alexander's (which I gave five stars), and the comparison unfortunate for this restaurant. Our mussels... More

Perfectly delicious dinner on the terrace on a beautiful Florida evening! A pleasure to have a choice of a petite portion - perfect. Amazingly prepared rack of lamb and scallops with sides! Excellent wine list along with a warm welcome from the owner and staff!

Visiting family were meeting friends and invited us along. I was anxious to try one of Naples' better known French restaurants. Quite simply, the food was OK. The homemade country pate lacked flavor, and enters were pretty standard fare. It's been a couple of weeks since we were there, and I debated whether or not to write a review. Others... More

Chez Boet combines friendly ownership and staff with excellent and authentic French country cooking. Using fresh ingredients with "old school" recipes delivers a different dining experience than other area French bistros. Pleasant ambiance is far less frantic than the seasonal mobs on 3rd Street and 5th Avenue.

We discovered the Crayton Cove area of Naples on our recent visit. Delightful little area of town near the City Pier, which includes Chez Boet. The lovely restaurant is owned by the husband and wife team Lisa and Phillipe Boet, and are passionate about their restaurant and the food - and it shows. Wonderful food artfully prepared.

We'd never visited Naples Florida before this trip, and were looking for a memorable dining experience on our first evening. Reviews for Chez Boet were quite enticing. Our reservation was honored on time, and the service was very attentive. The Bouillabaisse was beautifully presented, as was the Roasted Duck with scrumptious orange sauce. The menu has a very broad selection... More

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
