“BEST MEAL OF THE WINTER SEASON IN FT MYERS!”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

Four of us dined for the first time at Blue Windows and were very impressed! This is a small restaurant with less than a dozen tables. We went for the early seating offering a three course dinner plus salad for $30. I had escargot, duck breast with a rich pomegranate sauce, and creme brulee. Service was excellent, the food was outstanding, and the owner very friendly; her husband, Christian is French and the chef. We had a French waiter who was very efficient and helpful, who had just joined the staff. We loved this restaurant, and it's my favorite in the area after just this single meal. Everyone in our party raved about her selection. We will definitely be going back!

“Great vacation dinner”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

We had a very enjoyable French dinner last Tues. evening with friends who live in Fort Myers. Great food & service and we would certainly come back. You should try it! As a bonus, I left my iPhone on the chair and they immediately called me - that was close!

“Nice small French Restaurant”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

We really liked this place last year, so decided to try it again. While we weren’t greatly disappointed there were a couple of things that could have been improved. The onion soup was wonderful except for some reason the bread in it with the cheese topping was so hard, it couldn’t even be cut with a knife. The salads were pretty bland, just greens and then not mixed together very well. Green beans came with both meals and they were cooked perfectly. My duck was good as was my husband’s meat. I thought the cube of potato was undercooked. The servings of wine seemed very small. The service was excellent even though they were pretty busy.

“On The List”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

To start with one of the best experiences in Fort Myers. The waiter was filling in that night, was great. Hope you bring him in full time. Food was very good with a great wine pairing. Will be back this week!
