“Best food ever”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Been coming to Marco Island for 40+ years and for some reason had never gone there. The food is outstanding and staff is very helpful. We are normally casual people and didn't know if we would like "French Food". The seabass was better than any lobster that I have had, unbelievable salad, could eat there every night !! The owner Lisa makes sure that everyone is comfortable and well taken care of. Great, great place. A must if you are going to visit Marco Island or the Naples area.

“Bottle of wine”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

Food, live music, atmosphere excellent, but least expensive bottle of wine is close to $40.00 and when you ad tax, and tip to the bottle of wine it's close to $50.00 which makes me realize why so many customers I noticed were drinking soft drinks. I would go more often but not when I have to $40.00 for a bottle of wine.

Thank you for taking the time to write about your dining experience with us. We are happy to read that you enjoyed the food, live music and atmosphere at Bistro Soleil. After reading your review, I was concerned about your comments regarding our wine list. I double checked our wine list and found that we offer 24 bottles of wine under $40 dollars. Fourteen bottles range in price from $36-$39. Ten bottles range in price from $29-$35. In addition to our wine list, we offer a full bar. We also offer Happy Hour in our bar (please call for days and times) where we offer a $4.99 appetizer menu in addition to half price house wine, domestic beer and well drinks. I hope you will dine with us again so that we may offer you some suggestions in regards to our bottled wines in the price range you are looking for.
Thank you,
Lisa

“Elegant Dining”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

Our group, wives of airline pilots, held our annual Holiday Dinner Party with our husbands at Bistro Soleil at the Olde Marco Inn. As world travelers, I can say that we have never had better food, service or atmosphere. The menu is varied and all delicious. Service was professional and world-class. Owners Lisa and Denis really know how to run a great restaurant. We will return!

“Excellent food and ambience!”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

Wonderfull food. Great team service. Entrees are presented when ready by a team person. So always fresh and hot. Great table spacing with music in the attached bar area. Owners are always present and greeting diners and also with follow up after dinners are presented.
