We have dined here several times since discovering The Blue Windows Bistro earlier this summer and every single meal has been FABULOUS! First I must say that the owners, Mari and Christian (who is also the Chef) are the ultimate hosts. The first time you go there they are friendly and so accommodating and then the next time you go you are greeted at the door like an old friend and someone they have known for years and years. Mari always has a smile for you and Christian cannot wait to tell you about his latest and delicious creation he has made that day.
The menu is small but well thought out so there is something for everyone but do not make up your mind until you hear the specials. Everything is made from scratch so if there is something you cannot eat or are allergic to, Christian and Mari can accommodate you. We love The escargot, pate, French Onion Soup, Veal, Duck, Lamb.......heck, there isn't a bad dish on the menu.
Service has always been perfect too. The friendly style that Mari and Christian welcomes Blue Window's guest also is felt with the servers that work for them. Danny, Suzanne and Chris are all fabulous and you can tell they really enjoy working there. This is a place that shouldn't be missed and is just so affordable for wonderful, homemade French food. The monthly wine dinners are great too!

We enjoyed Christian's french cuisine so much, we had him cater our wedding. The food is second to none, and our guests are still raving about his beef and chicken picata dishes. Many guests informed us that Christian's meal was not only the best meal they've had at a wedding, but the best french meal they've ever had. We wholeheartedly agree. The service was phenominal. The food is EXTREMELY reasonably priced as well. If you get a chance to get down to the Ft. Myers area, you have to vist the Blue Windows Bistro! Tres Bon!!!

"good things come in small packages..." This is a small restaurant- great great food, great service, friendly staff, positive French ambiance. Even the music reminds one of old France.
The cef wil cook items to order, if asked. The highly attentive service really complements the food. Did not manage to find ANY minuses, WOW!!!

We live in Fort Myers and dine out regularly (we have young kids so try to do a regular date night). My husband speaks French, has toured France, and loves French food...so when this restaurant opened, he really wanted to go! We were not disappointed. The service was warm and attentive, and the chef and his wife personally came to the tables to inquire about the meal. The food was wonderful...escargot...sweetbreads...salmon!Everything was tasty, and we received good suggestions for the wine. Being night owls, we ended up closing down the place, and we had a chance to talk to the chef and his wife, who are just lovely people who genuinely enjoy their work. When we went back for my husband's birthday, we were treated like old friends. Such a wonderful little place! Please go, you won't be disappointed!

Very enjoyable little spot....closest thing to a family french restaurant, small and friendly with very good food. A little disappointed in the escargot, seemed to be missing something, perhaps not enough garlic. Prices were reasonable for entrees and house wine...would highly recommend dining here
