4 of us stopped here for an early dinner. The overall menu seemed very inviting, but each of us were attracted to the four course tasting dinner. All of our meals were well prepared and very flavorful and we each were very satisfied. We were fortunate to be seated outside which added to the enjoyment off the
dinner.

Depending on when you arrive, there are a couple options for fixed price menus, or you can order off the menu. A very personable bartender, Rick, suggested the entres we chose. Their sea bass is AMAZING and the best I have had anywhere! Their duck is also fabulous. Our waiter, Kevin, was very attentive. We've been there twice and will definitely go back. Inside seating can be noisy because it is very busy. The outside seating is more relaxing, and the people watching on 5th avenue is always fun.

Recently visited Bistro 821 with my wife and another couple for the wine and dine special - two
entrees and a bottle of wine ordered before 6:30 pm for the price of $30. This is our first visit to Naples and to this restaurant which was highly recommended by the couple dining with us.

We had reservations and when we arrived were shown to our table immediately - it was a 5;30
seating. We were promptly greeted by our server and when we indicated we were having the special he left and returned within minutes with fresh bread and oil dip as well as a good bottles of red and white wine. Our tables were outside and the air was a bit nippy but we were fortunate to be near space heaters which made the outdoor experience enjoyable.

Our friends had the sea bass while my wife and I chose a chicken and pork dish from a very
reasonable choice of entree items of seafood, beef, chicken and pork. In a word fantastic.The entrees were delivered in a very timely and professional manner by a trio of assistant servers.
The presentation was excellent and the quality superb. To quote our friends the sea bass was
"to die for". My wife's chicken with tarragon could have used a touch more tarragon but that's just being picky. My savory pork with stir fried vegies was exceptional.

Simply put an excellent meal for the price, great service complimented by a 5th ave street-side ambiance. We will return to this restaurant and cannot recommend highly enough this wine and dine aspect of their service.

Bottle of wine and two,entrees for $30! And the food is really good. Choice of about five entrees, three of,which we,have tried and are good. Option of adding $10 and getting upgraded entree (the Sea Bass is amazing, melt-in-your mouth) and good Cesar salad. Good bread and dip provided too. We sat outside at softly lit white table cloth table looking at pretty 5th Ave. Didn't look at the price outside of early seating prices - why would you pay more unless you prefer to eat late! Gets booked up days ahead so make reservation early.

The $30 special is outstanding. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Our server was attentive and informative. They easily upgrade the wine. My sole was very good. I would recommend this restaurant.
