This place was outstanding! Our server was so friendly and made us feel welcomed. The sea bass was the best I ever had. I was also able to try some of the tuna and snapper which was also delicious. We will definitely be back!
Easy to see why Bistro 821 is a local favorite. Great food, memorable drinks and notable service. A bit loud due to number of early diners (special menu before 7pm causes the restaurant to thin out a little after 8pm), but when the restaurant cleared out a bit, it was easier to converse at normal level.

Consistently good food. The sea bass is excellent. We also had the mussels and scallops, they were delicious. The only problem was with the salad. The server wrote down the wrong salad so I was served the salad I did not want. She did ask if I wanted the salad I had ordered but I declined because our meal was being served. Overall, excellent meal and we will be back!
reasonably priced with good food
We always enjoy dining out at this restaurant.The pricing is very reasonable and that is one of the reasons we return here regularly.
Went to Bistro 821 for our anniversary this weekend. I expected great food because of the reviews and it still exceeded my expectations! The ribeye was grilled to perfection, the lobster was savory and the snapper was out of this world! The wait staff was helpful and recommended the perfect cocktails. And for dessert, the molten chocolate cake was decadent but not overly so. Cannot say enough good things about this restaurant. Thank you for a meal to remember! We WILL be back again!
Always great time!
This place is top notch. Always great food and staff. Never any complaints. Becky is the best!!!!
Phenomenal food would be an understatement! The sea bass is hands down the best we've ever tasted. I would highly recommend that you not miss this jewel when in Naples. The place was hopping early on a Saturday night, but the service was still very good. Also, the wine list had a marvelous selection from which to choose. This will always be our first stop when in Naples!!!

Pasta vodka was greasy! Other people in the group enjoyed there meals
Friends recommended this rest. So first time there. Weather was perfect as we sat outside. Definitely a must. Food was great service good but waiter had no personality which that does help with the dinner. Will definitely go back
Neil is awesome!
We always dine at Bistro 821 when in Naples. The food is very good, the restaurant is lively and Neil is the best waiter ever! He truly loves his job and he takes care of everyone. Also, the GM Rebecca had plenty of restaurant face time, ie. running food, bussing and holding doors. Very enjoyable.
Love the early bird specials!
One of my favorite restaurants in Naples. Love their early bird specials. 2 entrees and a bottle of wine... Have a hard time deciding between the fish or pork tenderloin with capers... Both are delicious!

excellent food for the money . would go again waiter very helpful about menu choices
Noisy but good
Reservation was right on target. No wait. The food was excellent and plentiful, but the Friday night (7:00 pm) crowd is noisy.
Super restaurant, superb food
I really enjoyed this place. The sea bass, a house favorite, was great. The fish, perfect, the mashed potatoes creamy and delicious, and the accompanying asparagus were just right. My companion enjoyed his duck. That's all we had as we flew in for dinner, so no wine for me!

We had menu items off their specials, and the ribs and scallop items were fabulous!
Excellent Dining Experience
You can always count on Bistro 821 for a delicious meal, great service, and good atmosphere. We had a wonderful meal at a fixed priced menu.There are many choices from which to choose. Our waiter was great. Highly recommend Bistro 821.
Go For The Food!
Perhaps a new bartender was working the night we visited - I ordered a Southern Comfort Manhattan - when I tasted it - it was obvious that it was not what I'd ordered. The waitstaff person apologized and said that indeed she had ordered what I'd requested and didn't know what had happened. I ordered a Belvedere Lemon Drop and when it arrived the waitstaff member told me that the bar was out of Southern Comfort so the bartender had made a substitution for the liqueur.Unacceptable! The Lemon Drop was awful as well- ---think he forgot the Triple Sec. The food however was wonderful - I had the Snapper and my guest had the duck.
Visit to Bistr 821
Been going for over 20 years - always outstanding and this time was no different.
Met friends for a great dinner. Service was fast and efficient, but not rushed. 821 is always a great choice.
Our birthday celebration was fantastic. All four of us loved our dinners. The chocolate dessert was scrumptious and ended a perfect night.
Great Value/Great Food
Had a great meal outside. Everything was excellent.
Always love Bistro 821
Never disappoints. The food has set the bar quite high. Can't find anything in Naples to compare, but then it IS my favorite!

We went here on a Sunday evening . It was busy but the staff were attentive to us. We were told to ask for an outside table which was a great suggestion. So much fun watching people and the fancy cars. My wife had the vodka pasta. This was ok. I had the pick 2 meal. I chose the sea bass and the prawns. WOW. This was the best sea bass I have ever had. Melt in your mouth style. We loved this Restaraunt . We will definitely go back!
Dinner came out about one minute after we ordered.
Dinner came out about one minute after we ordered it. Very strange. Otherwise everything was good, and the waiter did not rush us. Cant beat the early dining deal.
excellent dining experience
The service from three employees was attentive and excellent. We loved the food and the staff.
Great Food and service was outstanding.
When in Naples, FL. It's a must dining experience!!
I've been to many restaurants in Naples ...
I've been to many restaurants in Naples over the past several years, and this is my new favorite. The sea bass was at least as good as USS Nemo, which has been my standard of excellence. The Caesars salad dressing was great as was all the other food The service was perfection We sat outdoors ever looking Fifth ave. I recommended outside seating to avoid the noise inside
We loved the food and the atmosphere! Service was great. Food was delicious. We will be back!
Not so Memorable
We ate here two years ago and I remember it as one of the best meals of the trip. I'm sorry to say that opinion has changed. The restaurant is lovely and the staff is friendly and attentive but the food quality seems to have slipped. Perhaps it is a different chef. There are many excellent dining venues in Naples. Sadly I don't expect I'll return to this one on my next visit.
Outside dining is a must!
We asked for a table outside and was perfect to watch people walk by and the fancy cars drive by on Fifth Avenue. We shared a ceasar salad and I had lobster tail and my husband had grilled shrimp. I would recommend either dinner as they were both delicious! It was our last dinner for the 2016 season in Florida before going back north. Please make a reservation but be sure to request a table outside.
We have always enjoyed dining at Bistro 821 and have gone there for years. The Wine and Dine option combines great food with a great price.
Good restaurant on 5th Avenue
Dined here at the beginning of our month long vacation to Naples. Atmosphere was really good on a Saturday night with the restaurant full & buzzing. Service both at the bar and at the table was good, whilst we didn't think the meal was inexpensive, for 5th Avenue dining don't think it was too bad. We shared a crab dip to start which was very good - but don't want to think about the calories in it! My husband had the Beef Tournedos and I had the sea bass. Both were good although would have preferred another type of potato rather than mash. We shared a bottle of Provence Rose wine, which is not easy to come by in Naples restaurants or for that matter anywhere is USA. Wine was OK although not the best weve had. At €40 it was perhaps a little expensive compared to what we would pay in a restaurant at home in UK for a similar wine but again, for Naples not too bad. Would definitely go back, sit at the bar and eat where there was a really lively vibe.

Try the sea bass, it's the best. It has a very buttery flavor. We enjoyed the whole menus
