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.

We have been here many times, and never been disappointed! We arrived early for our table and sat at the bar. Great happy hour with two for one wines etc.
We always do the early dining in all restaurants every Sat-this is a good bargain at two entrees and a bottle of wine for $33.95 -- there is a good range of entrees to choose from--my husband and I got the pork loin cutlet with mashed potatoes and green beans, the pork piece was enough for two to three meals-great portions!! Our friends got the sole and the asian stir fry-both were delicious and again, a good sized portion!
We would recommend Bistro 821! Great food and service! However, if you are looking for privacy and romance, this may not be the place!!

The waiter was excellent and the atmosphere, especially with a window view looking out to the sidewalk, was very good. However, I am a fan of Paella and I have had it here before, and it just wasn't up to par for this popular dish. Lots of seafood, but no discernible hint in either taste or color of the presence of saffron. For some that may sound like quibbling but as I said I am a big fan of good Paella. Despite the above, I would certainly return to this restaurant.

We had the special dinners including a bottle of wine. The salad was an up charge but worth the money. The Parmesan crusted sole was delicious.
We always eat here when in Naples for a staycation. Great food and what a value.

Repeat customer, love this place, comfortable atmosphere, good service, great food; never had anything we didn't like. Friends joined us to help celebrate our anniversary, great relaxed time. My pork chop was outstanding as usual, as was my wife's filet. Out friends really enjoyed their scallops & snapper. Chocolate cake and key lime pie were delicious.

Love the Bistro 821 as a special birthday dinner pleasure. The food, service and ambiance are all wonderful and the food choices are outstanding. Been going there for years and haven't had a bad evening yet - and don't expect we ever will. I highly recommend the restaurant.

Have eaten at Bistro 821 every time I am in Naples. We visit there at least two times a year.
Reservations are recommended, because the restaurant is always crowded. Great wait staff, excellent food selections, very decent wine.

Tables seem very small and or cluttered by the time the water, wine glasses, food is on the table for four people, it's an accident waiting to happen. To my embarrassment, I was the person who knocked over the wine bottle, went to the ladies room, returned, and the food removed from table.
We've been there several times, the food and atmosphere is good and usually the wait staff is above average. Of course, we would go again!

We enjoyed our experience at Bistro 821 from start to finish! We were seated right at the time of our reservation. We got a wonderful table by the window so we can people watch out on fifth Avenue. Our servers name was Rob and he was wonderful from recommending dinners to recommending desserts and always being attentive. We split the small nut and berry salad and all the ingredients were fresh and tasty. I had the caprese risotto with blackened chicken and my sister had the seafood risotto. Both were cooked perfectly. For dessert Rob recommended the key lime creme brûlée and it was heaven! Best dinner we have had in Naples and perfect service. We can't wait to return!
