We were aware of some of the not-so-favorable reviews when we made our reservation. Yes, the tables were closely spaced together, but no more so than a European restaurant. Yes, the place was packed, but no more so than any good restaurant. And the Beach Bistro if a really good restaurant. We met good friends who lived in the area and had a very enjoyable evening. From the wonderful appetizers (I had the delicious beef and foie gras "slider") to our dessert, Beach Bistro did not dissappoint. It was honestly the best meal we ahd on our trip to Marco Island and then Anna Maria. I will be back!

Not only does Beach Bistro have to most amazing food and staff, but they give back to the place where they live. Beach Bistro, and Eat Here help out most of our community programs without the need for lots of press on it. The local school, Anna Maria Elementary, has been blessed with a partnership with the Bistro for years. Do good and good things will happen!

Fresh seafood prepared perfectly. Reservations are required and I can see why. From the moment we entered everthing was handled well; from the dinner to the desert.

Wonderful in-window table overlooking the Gulf of Mexico as the sun set. Old style 'fine dining' with quality ingredients and impeccable service. The steak was tasty as was my partner's scallops in curry. The highlight however was the amuse bouche, a finger of toasted focaccia with pesto, tapenade and a postage stamp sized pot of tomato soup with blue cheese, a real treat. The merlot by the glass was of the highest quality. Overall high end dining and appropriate pricing, if you anticipate $100 a head you won' t be too far off. Make time to enjoy the sunset from the beach with your toes in the warm sand.
