I've been dining at Bistro 821 for about 15 years now. Don't get down to 5th as often as I used to, but when I get to Bistro, I am always blown away by the food. It will always be my favorite restaurant on 5th.!!

The two for one was very good. The pot pie was not good. It was filled with potatoes and very little chicken and vegetables. Two people of our six ordered it and were disappointed. The sole was outstanding! The bottle of wine for two was also a nice feature.

We had a large party, seated well before 6pm and able to order before 6 as well but were told we could not have the wine special because we were not seated by 5:30 (we were sitting before 5:38PM). We chose the restaurant and got there early for the wine and dine special. The website does not say you have to be seated by 5:30 and also at time of booking said the special order had to be in by 7pm. I feel with a large party they should have made an exception due to the lack of explanation on their website, but did not.

We went for our anniversary and first evening in Naples. Concierge was excellent, our waiter was good but not really friendly or engaging. We both had beef medallions which was excellent.
We are not big eaters and couldn't believe that if we wanted to share an appetiser or salad we had to pay an extra 5 dollars for the privilege of sharing! This is outrageous!!
Otherwise a lovely restaurant

It has been a tradition to go for Thanksgiving dinner for years. The turkey was delicious. The problem was it was like eating in a diner. We placed our order and within minutes our plates were set in front of us. I guess the staff wanted to go home.
Also, a slice of pie is no longer included with dinner.

The location is great, right on 5th Avenue with indoor and outdoor seating. Our reservation was honored. We were there for Thanksgiving dinner. I had the traditional turkey with all the trimmings and it was excellent. My wife had paella loaded with shellfish, also excellent. Nice wines by the glass list at a reasonable price. Very nice dining experience.

It was Thanksgiving so it was extremely busy however they coped very well with the amount of people they were serving. We were seated on time and attended to promptly. The food was good and far too much as is usually the case.

We very much enjoyed our thanksgiving dinner at bistro 821. We had a choice of entree (turkey or roast pork) with what I think was mixed white and sweet potatoes mashed, fresh green beans, and dressing flavored with dried fruit. Amazing pumpkin cheesecake for dessert. And one of the best manhattans I've had lately! Excellent service.

I've come here for years and for the most part have mostly good experiences. This last time food was close to awful. Salmon was so dry and tasteless, had to use left over sauce from the appetizer. The beef tips in pasta were very tastie but, the beef tips were incredibly tough and cooked very well done when they were ordered medium. I had the chicken and artichoke risotto which was excellent. Also, the goat cheese rolls app. Was also incredible. Hope things get better for the entrees!

My husband and I went for our anniversary dinner. The hostess put little heart confetti on our table to celebrate, which was a cute touch. The hostess was very nice and had a great vibe. Our waitress was nice as well, every thing we picked off the menu she kept saying great choice, and she was right. Everything was delicious. The Sea bass was awesome!! It was huge too. We should have got the half portion size from the special menu, which was $32.95 per person for a salad, and half portion of a meal with a bottle of wine. Really good deal.

Always have wonderful food. Early dining special is great! Happy hour and regular menu are also just super. We have had Mark as our server several times and he is the best!! Definitely one of our favorite spots in Naples.

We have been to Bistro numerous times and this dinner was a disappointment . The three people in our party all orderd Parmesean crusted sole. Looked delicious but tasted very fishy. Maybe not fresh definitely frozen.. Everything else was great..

Couldnt decide on what I wanted so I went for the combo. The description was as follows:"Sea Bass • Snapper • Jumbo Prawns • Wagyu Sirloin • Tuna • Lobster Tail
All portions are half-size portions served with Mashed Potatoes, Asparagus and Various Sauces".
I was served the prawns and snapper as selected. Both were smothered in a hot and sweet sauce. I thought it would be "various sauces" to select from or on the side to sample. I was dissappointed. Not a gourmet preparation, just smothered. plain shrimp and snapper smothered in a sauce which probably came out of a bottle. dissappointed.
