Bistro 821 Ratings and Reviews

Outstanding dining experience. From the time we entered the door and were greeted by the hostess wishing my wife a Happy Birthday all the way through the final bite of dessert, everything was top-notch. Service was professional without being overbearing. As for the food, I can't praise it enough. The starter of risotto caprese with shrimp was expertly prepared and delicious. My wife's snapper - highlighted in many other reviews - was delicious. The true star of the night, however, was the sea bass - a perfectly cooked thick filet complimented by a delicious beurre blanc sauce. Truly amazing. I told my wife that I will never order sea bass in any other restaurant because it will pale in comparison to this amazing dish. We will definitely head back to Bistro 821 next time we're in Naples!

Everything was perfect. We love the Sole. It was excellent as usual. The dinner was two couples celebrating the wives' birthdays. No special attention sought from 821, just a good meal and a chance to catch up. We got exactly what we came for at a very reasonable price. Not our first visit, nor our last.

It was a slow evening. Our female server was just ok. Drinks needing ask to be filled. Meal was just ok. Food could have been warmer. Too much gravy on potatoes. Almost swimming in it. Fish special looked greasy. Will ask for lemon butter and gravy on side next time.

The dining experience was very nice, comfortable with a noise level that allowed normal conversation. Even though the weather was a little to warm for us to sit outside we were seated right at the front window which gave a wonderful view but with the benefit of A/C. The price was reasonable and the menu was wonderful with many choices to pick from. The prices for cocktails, if you call your preference, was a bit pricey. If your looking for a nice quite evening dinner spot I would highly recommend Bistro 821.

It was a perfect choice. Our waiter provider excellent service on the street front patio and all his recommendations were so tasty. A must try dish is Miso Chilean Sea Bass and Thai Red Snapper. We really wanted to stay longer but it was incredibly hot outside and we happened to select an uncovered table, completely our choice. We will definitely return soon.

We have been many times and have had great service. This time we took friends to introduce them to the early dining menu. Great meal great value. Our friends loved it. We had the sautéed sole, pork chop and mussel pasta. Everyone loved their dish.

My girlfriend and I could not have been more impressed or happy with our experience at Bistro 821!
Great atmosphere, Great service (Thanks Jenna!), incredible appetizers, and the best Sea Bass and Snapper we've ever experienced.
We'll cherish the memories made that night forever!

A night out with friends was everything we expected and more from Bistro 821, a clear favorite of ours for years. The food is not only fresh but so creatively prepared and served that you can count on enjoying the meal every time. Two of us had the spicy shrimp over vegetables - the shrimp were perfectly cooked (not overdone) and the veggies were crisp and delicious. the key to the dish was the sauce - so,so good - some heat but only enough for you to savor the flavor of the sauce. Two others had the sole over mashed potatoes and beans - my wife said it was divine with a lovely lemon flavor to the sauce on the perfectly prepared fish. Creme brulee topped off a most delicious meal.

Our group of 7 people enjoyed Bistro 821's food and service. We ordered a variety of dishes from seafood to poultry and everyone raved about their meals. This was our first time here and we look forward to returning. Thank you!

As many others have stated, the Chilean sea bass is incredible! The best fish we ever had, matching the food in Hawaii. I had the kobe steak, and that was great as well. Our waiter, Mark, was a great server, friendly, informative, and fun. This is a MUST VISIT place in Naples!

While visiting Naples this restaurant was recommended to me by a friend. It met all my expectations. The food was delicious. We had dinner late on a Thursday night so the restaurant was not crowded. The service was excellent.

We've never been disappointed with Bistro 821. The food is always fresh and cooked to perfection. The service is attentive but not annoying in anyway. My husband always has the you pick 2 with the sea bass and it looks amazing. I usually have the mussels with a small salad that would feed a small village. Wines are reasonably priced as are other beverages. The bread dip is fantastic. I hate giving this place a good review because getting reservations becomes more difficult.

The food was so delicious. I had the filet and my husband had the sea bass - phenomenal!! All the reviews talk about the sea bass and they are totally spot on! Our server was very accommodating, knowledgeable and nice. The atmosphere was perfect. Highly recommend.

Deserts are massive while the main courses are normally portioned. The tiramisu , for example, was buried in a vat of whipped cream. Gelato dessert is delicious be needs to be shared amongst 3 or 4. I had the grilled octopus a bit too gummy but acceptable.

Nice setting, we asked for a booth via OpenTable and they accommodated my wife and I with a great table towards the back of the restaurant. It was bustling with lots of people, but didn't feel uncomfortably crowded. Service was good, the food was good, and the prices were pretty fair overall. We would go back again, although it would be nice to also try some of the other restaurants along the avenue.
