Excellent food and service with a beautiful water view watching the sunset over the Gulf. We had the filet mignon with béarnaise sauce and the lobster spaghetti. Both prepared well and tasted good. The restaurant is busy and is fairly loud however they do have a piano player for background music. Would definitely return when in the Clearwater Beach/Dunedin area.

We had a group of 11 family members coming from our patriarch's memorial service and everyone was so happy with the selection of venue and menu. We all agreed that our parents would have loved this place. Wish we would have discovered it sooner. Beautiful location. Great selection of food and drink. Efram was very attentive.

The water view at sunset is fabulous, with both indoor and outdoor dining options. We had the sea scallops and filet steak entrees and both were cooked just right and delicious! The shrimp cocktail appetizer was also good, only downside was the waiter forgot to bring it before the entree. The manager brought it out after the entrees arrived with no apology given except that the waiter forgot all about it. Overall, it was a pleasant dining experience and I might try the restaurant again with a different waiter next time.

Our evening was very nice and all enjoyed our night. Service and food was very good, view is beautiful and the piano player was enjoyable. Nice touch with gift certificate to come back for champagne on them on special occasion, we will be back.

Water view and sunset was like watching a beautiful painting in the sky. Food was excellent as was the service. Menu would appeal to everyone. Very enjoyable experience make your reservations for 7:30 so you can watch the sunset.

Had a good brunch at Bon Appetit. I've had poor service here in the past, which put me off for a long time, but it's much better now. And the view from this restaurant is unbeatable. My husband and I both enjoyed our lunches. The service was cheerful and efficient. Would definitely go again.

Bon Appetit is a classic waterfront restaurant in Dunedin, FL...a town renowned for its award-winning restaurants and downtown ambiance. Dinner with a sunset over Caladesi Isle and the Gulf of Mexico? What can one say?

Great service, ambience, view - food was outstanding. Only complaint would be the outside bar had a musician playing & it was really loud. Every time the sliding door to the restaurant opened for a server, you would hear it. It was not a deal breaker but that person should be positioned in a way so the music does not go directly inside.

A creative cocktail selection, I tried the Watermelon East Side, super refreshing and not too sweet. wine selection is adequate, nothing special. The wonderful waterfront location made the experience worth it, otherwise it would have been ok at best. An entirely too rigid 'no substitution' policy on their menu coupled with prices that don't reflect the level of food served made for a good meal overall, not great.

Dinner was amazing. We had one person order the scallops and they were wonderful. I personally had the escargot and a grouper sandwich, both of which were fabulous. The views from our window seat were amazing. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

I had a good experience the first time when I went for lunch. But my dinner (shrimp and grits)was awful. I had to send it back, which is something I rarely do. They did not offer to take it off the bill. In "recompense", they gave me a free "mini-dessert", and a certificate for a bottle of "house brand" champagne, which can only be renewed by a party of four. They could have done so much more to keep a customer. I won't be back.

My wife and I really enjoyed the food and let me tell you our waiter was on top of it. We did not once have to wonder where he was or why our glasses were not full. The noise level was higher than we would have liked but that quieted down when a large party left. We went on a walk into Dunedin and came back for sunset on the dock.
Alway's the best of the best
If the secret gets out you will need to exspand. The food is to die for. The drink are outstanding My wife said you make the best Vodk gimlet in the World. The help seem like they like being there and do a wonderfdul job. the only complaint I have is our waiter seemed to be new. He had a hard time exsplaining what the soup was, he made it sound like it came from a can. He did such a bad job I finealy made him take it off my order.
An absolute delight
Bon Appetit was recommended to us for the view of the sunset. While the view lived up to the recommendation, the quality of the food and the service was an unanticipated surprise. Although the restaurant was crowded with tables close together, there was no noise or overheard conversations. We plan to return.
We are fairly frequent diners at lunch time but we had not been there for dinner for a couple of years. We had friends from Texas with us and all I can say is that the whole evening exceeded our expectations.
Delicious food, beautifully presented and really courteous service.
The wine selection is average/good but the wine needed to be chilled at the table as it was on the warm side. Do hope the wine is not stored at such a high ambient temperature!
Overall excellent menu and a great experience. We will go again soon.
Spectacular Sunset Dinner
Had dinner with another couple and could not have had a better table. Our table was right beside the window looking right over the water at the sunset. The view of the sunset during the dessert course of our dinner was outstanding. Staff was very responsive and very courteous. Absolutely a must for a special occasions.

The service was terrible. The server "Steven" seemed flustered right from the start and he only had 4 tables of 2 people each. He never introduced himself. He forgot my wine and then said he already gave it to me after I asked for it again. The table next to us ordered a large salad to split and he just brought a large bowl of salad to the table. They had to ask for him to split it in the back. Any truly caring, experienced server would have already done that. For the price of the food, I expect way better service. The food was okay. I ordered the grouper medallions and they were tasty. It came with a cucumber salad which was an odd pairing to me, but it tasted better than I expected. My meal also came with the soup of the day "cream of mushroom". That is a pathetic, basic soup to offer in an upscale restaurant. My husband ordered the lobster pasta. It had great flavor but the lobster was overcooked and very chewy. With hundreds of choices in the Tampa Bay area, we chose to drive 45 minutes to check this place out, but we will not be back.

The restaurant and atmosphere are amazing as is the service. I was not impressed with the food. although we both had the Grouper medallions so I cannot speak to anything else on the menu, but this dish lacked flavor and was not well presented for the price. Not what I would have expected from such a lavish restaurant. I believe I would go back for the outdoor dining but I don't believe I would do indoor dining again. It was very enjoyable for our special occasion dinner.
